Herbal Medicine Needs To Be Considered In Health Facilities – Practitioner

The Director and Chief Executive Officer of Nananom Herbal Centre at Agona Swedru in the Central Region, Dr. Eric Ampiah has appealed to the Ghana Health Service and the Ministry of Health to consider the use of herbal medicine as an alternative to orthodox medicine in the delivery of health services in the various health facilities in the country.

Speaking in an interview with ghananews.com, Dr. Ampiah said herbal medicine has over the years proven to be even more efficacious and potent than chemically prepared medicine, being able to treat conditions and diseases that orthodox medicine is not able to treat.

He hinted that in most cases, patients undergoing medical treatment in the health facilities are advised by health workers themselves to seek for herbal treatment where their condition is getting deteriorated.

He said this situation calls for a second thought for herbal medicine to be accepted and used in the various health facilities as an alternative source of health care delivery in the country.
