Natural Products (secondary metabolites) have been the most successful source of leads for potential drug discovery. Natural products have been well documented for their medicinal uses for thousands of years. Plants have evolved and adapted over millions of years to withstand bacteria, insects, fungi and weather to produce unique, structurally diverse secondary metabolites. Their ethno pharmacological properties have been used as a primary source of medicines for early drug discovery. Macro and micro fungi have been part of human life for thousands of years. They were used as food (mushrooms), in preparation of alcoholic beverages (yeasts), medication in traditional medicine and for cultural purposes. Naturopathy is an Alternative treatment method it includes Herbal treatment, Diet therapy and Homeopathy. Natural treatments re-establish the body's inborn capacity to heal itself without the adverse impacts of conventional drug. Naturopathy is distinct primary health care system that mixes cutting edge logical information with customary and normal types of prescription. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes all encompassing, preventive care by concentrating on prevention, optimal health and wellness. Complementary and alternative medicine includes practices such as massage, acupuncture, tai chi, and drinking green tea. Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the term for medical products and practices that are not part of standard medical care.

Crude Drugs and Plant Products

Plants extract, either as pure compounds or as standardized extracts, provide unlimited opportunities for new drug discoveries. Extraction is the crucial step in the analysis of medicinal plants, because it is necessary to extract the desired chemical components from the plant materials for further separation and characterization. Crude Drug will be any regularly occurring, foul substance determined starting with natural alternately inorganic sources for example, plant, animal, bacteria, organs or whole organisms exceptional for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or aversion about ailment over people or other animals. Use and exploration of crude drugs has gained prominence in the medical community. The realization that many completely unknown substances are yet to be discovered from crude drugs has created a new interest in pharmacognosy and has led to many medical breakthroughs. The largest global markets for medicinal and aromatic plants are China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Netherlands, UK and the US It is estimated that Europe alone annually imports about 400,000 tonnes of medicinal plants with an average market value of US$ 1 billion from Africa and Asia. Japan: has the highest per capita consumption of botanical medicine in the world. Botanical medicine market in Japan in 1996 was estimated at US $ 2.4 billion and sales have grown rapidly in recent years. China: china's total output of medicinal plants from both cultivated and wild harvested sources is 1.6 million tones. The total value of the finished TCM in 1996 was US$ 3.7 billion.

Tribal Medicine

Tribal medicine is a part of Traditional medicine and is mainly practiced by the tribes in the forest. It is still in the primitive form. A study about tribal medicine will be incomplete without the upbringing of traditional medicine. Traditional medicine has been wide spread in every country since the beginning of the civilization. The tribes who lived in isolation practiced their own system of medicine, which is known as tribal medicine or ethno medicine.

Plant Biotechnology

Plant biotechnology is a field that entails applying technology on life (plants). It is a vast field that entails producing new products in a larger faster way, deviating from the conventional way of doing the same. Plant biotechnology can be divided into several systems depending on what each of these entails. The origin of Biotechnology can be traced back to prehistoric times, when microorganisms were already used for processes like fermentation. In 1920’s Clostridium acetobutylicum was used by Chaim Weizman for converting starch into butanol and acetone, latter was an essential component of explosive during World War- II. This raised hopes for commercial production of useful chemicals through biological processes and may be considered as the first rediscovery of biotechnology in the present century. Similarly, during World War-II ( in 1940’s) , the production of penicillin (as an antibiotic discovered by Alexaner Flemming in 1929) on a large scale from cultures of Penicillium notatum marked the second rediscovery of biotechnology. The third rediscovery of biotechnology is its recent reincarnation in the form of recombinant –DNA technology, which led to the development of a variety of gene technologies and is thus considered to be greatest scientific revolution of this century. Biotechnologies, as world indicate, is the product of interaction between the science and technology.

Plant Extraction Methods

A few methodologies can be utilized to extricate the plant material, natural solvents of fluctuating polarities are by and large chosen in present day strategies for extraction to abuse the different solubility’s of plant constituents. Maceration: This basic generally utilized methodology includes leaving the pounded plant to absorb a suitable dissolvable in a shut holder. Basic maceration is performed at room temperature by blending the ground drug with the dissolvable (medication dissolvable proportion: 1:5 or 1:10) and leaving the blend for a few days with periodic shaking or mixing. The concentrate is then rehashed from the plant particles by straining. Finally the last buildup of concentrate is squeezed out of the plant particles utilizing a mechanical press or a centrifuge. Kinetic maceration differed from basic one by continuous mixing. The technique is suitable for both introductory and mass extraction for Enzyme Activity. Plant Science based products dominated the overall market in terms of revenue at 36.4% in 2013 majorly owing to the presence of a relatively larger in University of Marylander of R&D programs. Plant Science based medicinal product segment on the other hand is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of over 12.0% from 2014 to 2020 due to increasing demand for population based therapeutic solutions and subsequent increase in R&D initiatives.

Trends and Developments in Ethnopharmacology

Ethnopharmacology has already played important role in the development of conventional medicine and is likely to play more significant role in the years to come. A team work amongst ethnobotanists, ethnopharmacologists, physicians and phytochemists is essential for the fruitful outcome on medicinal plants research. While the ethnopharmacologists have a greater role to play in the rationalization of combination of activities, the phytochemist's role will slightly shift towards standardization of botanicals. Indeed today many pharmacological classes of drugs include a natural product prototype. Aspirin, atropine, ephedrine, digoxin, morphine, quinine, reserpine and tubocurarine are a few examples of drugs, which were originally discovered through the study of traditional cures and folk knowledge of indigenous people.

Budget Mechanism $127,930 (Dollars in Thousands)

It is estimated that Europe alone annually imports about 400,000 tonnes of medicinal plants with an average market value of US$ 1 billion from Africa and Asia.

But what do we really know about the efficacy of such interventions?

Anecdotal evidence suggests that some complementary and alternative practices work, but very few of these treatments have been studied systematically. This is precisely why two different entities, the Office of Cancer Complementary and Alternative Medicine (OCCAM) and the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), have been created within the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
