Scientific Federation is pleased to announce World Congress and Expo Traditional & Alternative Medicine during June 19-21, 2017 at Valencia, Spain.
Knowledge, skills and practices based on theories, beliefs and experiences indigenous to various cultures. Used in the maintenance of health along with prevention, diagnosis and treatment of physical and mental illness is known as traditional medicine. Traditional medicine covers a wide variety of therapies and practices which vary from country to country and region to region. In some countries, it is referred to as "alternative" or "complementary" medicine. For centuries traditional medical systems were the primary medical system in the countries of origin, and now nevertheless the present dominance of the Western scientific medical model, citizens and health-caregivers are starting to rely and trust TMS substituting conventional scientifically proved therapies with unconventional ones.
In Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, 70-95 per cent of the population still use traditional medicine (TM) for primary healthcare. And some 100 million people are believed to use traditional, complementary or herbal medicine in the European Union (EU) alone — as high as 90 per cent of the population in some countries. The industry is worth big money. In 2012, global sales of Chinese herbal medicine reached US$83 billion, up more than 20 per cent from 2011. The global market for all herbal supplements and remedies could reach US$115 billion by 2020, with Europe the largest and the Asia-Pacific the fastest growing markets. The demand is driven by women as the main consumers of dietary supplements, by growing emphasis on healthy living and concerns over the side-effects of mainstream drugs.
Across the globe, researchers, policymakers, pharmaceutical companies and traditional healers are joining forces to bring Traditional Medicine into the twenty first century. The World Congress and Expo Traditional & Alternative Medicine (Traditional & Alternative Medicine -2017) aims to bring together leading academics, scientists, researchers and scholars across the globe to exchange and share their experiences and research findings about all aspects of Traditional & Alternative Medicine.
