The World Health Organization (WHO) defines traditional medicine as "the sum total of the knowledge, skills, and practices based on the theories, beliefs, and experiences indigenous to different cultures, whether explicable or not, used in the maintenance of health as well as in the prevention, diagnosis, improvement or treatment of physical and mental illness".

The conventional cultivators are a vital part of the group and are frequently acquainted with the points of interest of every family and its environs, so they are in a superior position to manage their everyday issues. Actually the local healers deal with the normal diseases of the people in their home setting. The traditional healers specialize in particular areas of their profession. Thus we find some medical practitioners are expert in bone setting, wound healing, poisonous bites, neurological disorders, etc. and some others in spiritual healing, especially the use of chants while others combine both in their treatment. It is important to note that there is no doubt about the efficacy of herbal medicine among its users. In India, poor peoples of rural and urban area mostly depend on herbal remedies since these are within their reach. In fact in remote areas this is the only source of health care available.
We would like to convey a great appreciation to following eminent people, honourable guests and Keynote speakers.
