Future Scope of Traditional Medicine & Acupuncture:
A Traditional health care practice of indigenous people pertaining to human health is termed as Ethnomedicine. The knowledge of certain herbs, animals and minerals that have curative and palliative effects were transmitted from one generation to another and it is the outcome of bold experimentation through trial and error method over hundreds of years. Ethnomedicine is the mother of all other systems of medicine such as Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, Nature cure and even modern medicine. Folklorists, anthropologists and medical scientists alike are studying traditional medicine or ethnomedicine in some countries like Russia, Africa and few European countries3. In Russia particularly, serious attempts have been made in the post revolution period to scientifically investigate the natural and herbal remedies of native medicine. It is understood that in Russia if a good home remedy is found for any serious ailment it is usually publicized and praised at the highest medical level. The contribution made by the traditional medicine to modern system of medicine is worth noting. As herbal medicine is the first level of contact for rural people when they require medical care, it is imperative for governments to take immediate steps to introduce the use of traditional medicine to supplement PHC. The government should provide environment to the people.

In any case, a large portion of these systems have no administrative endorsement or clinical evidential support. A considerable lot of the legislatures and administrative bodies have set up endeavors in finding clinical help for the consolidation of option medicines to help enhance the market and treatment strategies.
Complementary & Alternative Medicine Market, by intervention, 2013 - 2025 (USD Billion)
Complementary and Alternative Medicine:
The utilization of correlative and option prescription (CAM) is expanding quickly. The World Health Organization (WHO) orders 65– 80% of the world's human services benefits as 'conventional drug' Therefore, from the perspective of the populace proportion, a bigger number of individuals utilize CAM than present day western medication. Albeit much consideration has been centered on CAM from doctors as well as fundamental restorative specialists, logical confirmation for most CAM is as yet inadequate. Development of CAM as another current of pharmaceutical relies upon regardless of whether exact logical confirmation can be gathered.
The CAM questionnaires were sent to 2118 clinical oncologists and found that most oncologists (82%) believed that CAM products were ineffective against cancer. The main reason for this belief was a lack of reliable information (as cited by 85% of oncologists). Only 13% of oncologists had experienced CAM-associated disease improvement in their cancer patients
Why has CAM become so popular among ‘consumers’? I think that the following factors are responsible:
CAM is easy to understand and familiar
CAM is non-invasive, with few side effects
CAM helps improve quality of life (QOL) or activity of daily life (ADL)
CAM helps one to maintain one's own health
Western modern medicine does not fully correspond to the patients' demands the trend towards a more holistic medical approach ballooning medical expenses in this overview, I will describe and discuss the current status of CAM in Japan. The situation in Japan should be of much interest, since Japan is unique as a country in which highly advanced modern Western medicine coexists with traditional Asian medicine.
