Tribal Medicine

Another peculiarity of the tribal life is their holistic herbal medicine.  Having lived in harmony with nature for centuries, the tribes have identified various herbs which can heal a variety of diseases. They have no side effects. This indigenous stream of herbal medicine gets increased attention nowadays and more and more people, not only belonging to tribal community, but those from the outside civilised world, approach the tribal medical experts to take the medicine. Their approach to curing the disease not only includes taking the medicine, but also following some diets along with it. They may also suggest some changes in the lifestyle also depending on the type of diseases.
