Embrace the use of traditional medicine - Dr. Duncan

Dr Duncan entreated the government to conduct in-depth research into activities of traditional practitioners in the country in order to acquire accurate scientific data and limitations to enable proper usage of traditional medicine.


According to him good scientific documentation on traditional medicines will help doctors to know the chemical and organic composition of drugs that will spell out properly the various ailment and diseases that can be treated with a particular herbal drug.

He, however, expressed worry over the lack of commitment on the part of government in supporting traditional practitioners financially.

Dr Duncan also noted that most practitioners do not have enough money to go through the needed processes in getting their drugs endorsed in the country even though they have efficient and potent drugs that can cure various non-curable diseases such as cancers, HIV, Diabetes, Hypertension and others.

He made this known on Accra-based Kasapa FM.
