Traditional Medicine:

A traditional health care practice of native people pertaining to human health is termed as Ethnomedicine. The knowledge of certain medicinal plants, animals and minerals that have curative and Palliative effects were transmitted from one generation to another over hundreds of years. Ethnomedicine is the mother of all other systems of medicine such as Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, Homeopathy, Nature cure and even modern medicine. Even isolated phytochemicals for prevention and treatment of various health ailments has been in practice since long. The traditional healers are part and parcel of the community and are often familiar with the details of each family and its environs, so that they are in a better position to deal with their day-to-day problems. In fact, the native healers take care of the common ailments of the folk in their home setting. There is a strong market for traditional medicine and herbal products in all over the world. According to the latest research report from MRFR (Market Research Future) Global Traditional Medicine and Herbal Market Size is expected to reach USD 129 billion by 2023. The market is expected to exhibit a strong 5.88% CAGR over the forecast period from 2019 to 2023.

Quality Assurance & Phytochemical Approach:

Generally it is believed that the risk associated with traditional and herbal drugs is very less, but reports on serious reactions are indicating the need for stringent regulation which is important to ensure the quality, efficacy and safety of traditional and herbal products. Traditional medicine practices have been developed in different cultures in different regions, but without the harmony which is essential for development of international standards and appropriate methods for their standardization. The dilemma starts with classification of traditional drugs, in some countries they are seen as Neutraceuticals whereas in others they are deemed to be medicines. A general comparison of the pharmacopoeial standards reveals that there is a wide variation in plant specific parameters, quality standards in different countries. Marker based standards are becoming popular for the authentication of traditional and herbal drug components. The complex phytochemical and inconsistent ingredients are major hurdles during drafting any quality control guidelines for traditional and herbal drugs. The quality issues can be classified into three main aspects: cultivation, manufacturing, and distribution. Rigorous implementation of Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP), provided by WHO, is a crucial step towards improving the quality of traditional and herbal medicines. The ICTM 2020 will bring together an interdisciplinary group of professionals working in the field of Traditional Medicine. Major professional groups included: traditional medicine researchers Practitioners, Herbalists, Analyst, Professors, Directors, Young researchers. The field of Traditional medicine growing rapidly and its development are making tremendous impacts in Alternative Healthcare. The importance and significance can be gauged by the fact that it has made huge advancements over the course of time and is continuing to influence various sectors.

“Temples, wineries, orchids, industries... Nashik has all of these and then some. It’s this confluence of different realities that has left the town with a slightly confused identity. It takes pride in its ancient heritage but has all the aspirations of a modern city. It’s increasingly urban but in a pastoral setting and sometimes it’s a throwback to older, slower times in the middle of a busy city street”. Owing its name to the Ramayana epic, Nasik is believed to be the site of Lord Ram, his wife Sita and his brother Lakshmana's 14 year long exile. The famous Sita Gufa (or caves), from where it is believed that Ravana abducted Sita, stands testimony to this legend.
