African herbal medicine comes out of the dark

As we say to the students; "With the invisible, you must be concrete, be serious…!

Mocked and denigrated for centuries for its ritualistic and sacred aspect, African naturopathic medicine is now emerging from the shadows.

The ancestral use of medicinal plants from the Mother continent is now confirmed by scientists, with clinical trials supporting it. Their most recent work sheds some light on this thousand-year-old therapeutic treasure handed down orally from generation to generation.

In Africa, diseases are attributed to spirits, gods, or demons. And plants are part of a set of rituals with the virtue of repelling the bad elements that affect man. This sacred aspect of African naturopathic medicine has long been mocked, combated, and demystified by modern medicine.

And yet, the African pharmacopoeia, whose richness was revealed to us by the first explorers of the Mother continent, has been introduced into many so-called modern drugs and has given rise to great discoveries such as reserpine from Rauwolfia vomitoria, the starting product of neurosedatives.  Today, nearly 75% of Africans heal themselves only with the plants that surround them. What a lucky people!

We found in this pharmacopoeia the signature theory devised by Paracelsus based on the belief that the appearance, colour, and flavour of each plant indicate its medicinal properties. Passed down orally from generation to generation, this knowledge conferred notoriety and power on those who held it. Often, they were the tribal chiefs and the healers at the same time.

The use of medicinal plants may be called ancestral, but it is truly relevant today.

Not a month goes by without a plant in the back of a laboratory being confirmed for traditional use or even being extended to new ailments.

A few years ago, in Cameroon, while researching the therapeutic virtues of a small tree (Nauclea Latifolia). We checked the local uses of the leaves and sap. But when we got to the roots, we made an unexpected discovery: the roots contain a large quantity of a molecule identical to that of Tramadol, a drug derived from morphine widely prescribed to relieve severe pain.

This confirms that African herbal medicine is an ally of modern health! Many African plants have proven and controlled efficacy on pain. Some contain salicylic substances (aspirin was produced by copying them), other anti-inflammatories.

Still others are antacid, anti-insomnia (remember that a good sleep is essential for the pain-relieving treatments to be effective), digestive… Each plant has a unique composition, combining several dozen substances whose effects are potentiated and regulate themselves.

The traditional recites in African healing medicine give a differentiated understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of the disease and approaches from a different angle than that given by modern western medicine.

African naturopathic medicine has traditional and effective means of diagnosis, prevention and therapy and thus offers the possibility of establishing reliable proposals and treatment plans.
