Traditional medicine and the future of medicinal Plants in Nigeria

Emmanuel C. Chukwuma, Mike O. Soladoye, Roseline T. Feyisola

The use of Traditional medicine in developed as well as developing countries as basis for the treatment of many ailments has been in existence for thousands of years and there is no doubt that their importance has been widely acknowledged. The present study points out the fact that, medicinal plants have continued to play vital roles in the Nigerian healthcare sector, although traditional medical practitioners have not been fully recognized. Findings from this study also showed that the government is yet to adequately contribute positively to the conservation and sustainable use of these flora species. In general, this paper examines previously published articles on medicinal plants in Nigeria, presents the uses of some of these plants as earlier reported, discusses the challenges facing their availability and argues for rational conservation methods to be employed on time.
