I seriously agree with Olowabi that herbalists take a more holistic approach to illness. The moment we insist on standardised methodology for selection and certification, we miss other methods of generating and expressing knowledge. The modern medical scientific process has no monopoly on methodologies. African herbalists have succeeded in treating mental health than modern medicine. The fact that such knowledge has not been documented and shared widely does not make it less authentic. We are back again to the danger of worshipping imported methodologies!
Thanks for shaking me from my hibernation.
