Its traditions are as old as mankind itself and, until the eighteenth century, it was used as the most common form of medical treatment in Europe and North America. Today, in tribal cultures and among countries with Eastern traditions, such as China and India, medicinal herbs are still widely used. In more conventional medicine, pharmaceutical companies and doctors rely on plants as the basis of many drugs.
