Indigenous Bone Setting in Ethiopia: in case on Addis Ababa University student

Research Article of International Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine Indigenous Bone Setting in Ethiopia: in case on Addis Ababa University student Kebede Lemu Bekelcha, Aregash Eticha Sefera, Shamil Husen, Yohannes Natnael Fisseha Bule Hora University Indigenous medicine is a total combination of knowledge and practices that can be formally explained or used in preventation and elimination of physical, mental or social imbalance and relying exclusively on practical experience and observation handed down from generation to generation whether verbally or in writing (Endalew,2007). Most of the populations of the developing countries use indigenous medicine to meet their primary health care needs. Indigenous medicine is known in many countries of Africa to meet some of their primary health care. In Africa, up to 80% of the population uses indigenous medicine. Ethiopia is one part of African countries in which indigenous medicine has long history before the beginning of modern medicine. In Ethiopia, indigenous medicine is highly practiced and many Ethiopian societies depend on the use of indigenous medicine and indigenous healing systems to deal with their health practices. It has been providing both preventative and curative services for Ethiopian peoples. Even today, as various studies have shown that about 90% of Ethiopian still depends on indigenous medicine. This indicate that the presence of two medical systems like indigenous and modern neither of them can adequately address the health care needs of the total population (Assefa,1986). But there is the reason why the majority of people still deep follow the services of indigenous medicine. It is because of accessibility of indigenous medicine compared to modern medicine and most of people have a limited chance of setting modern health care systems (Wondwossen, 2005). In Ethiopia, indigenous medicine is not limited to rural areas, rather also has numerous roles in urban areas of the ...

“Spitting as traditional medicine” – why alpha-emitting nanoparticul- ates make spitting an unfortunate but significant contribution to health

Review Article of International Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine “Spitting as traditional medicine” - why alpha-emitting nanoparticulates make spitting an unfortunate but significant contribution to health Florent Pirot Independent Researcher Spitting is a human reflex as old as civilization, related, mainly, as is shown, to the evacuation of internal contamination with alpha-emitting nanoparticulates, a contamination with many causes, from car fumes and industrial smokes, coal ashes and cement, radon, phosphated fertilizers, to depleted uranium weapons and natural dust and tap water in areas of high natural radioactivity, as well as cigarettes, for the main sources. Strong levels of coal ash pollution together with high natural radioactivity explain for instance the spitting “custom” in Chinese streets, together with long distances between workplace and home, widespread cigarette use, and lack of public toilets. Alphaemitting nanoparticulates become a part of the digestion cycle in meat-eaters, but not without collateral damage.

Sedative, hypothermic, anxiolytic effects and rapid radical scavenging property of aqueous leaf extract of Vitex doniana (Lamiaceae) in mice

Research Article of International Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine Sedative, hypothermic, anxiolytic effects and rapid radical scavenging property of aqueous leaf extract of Vitex doniana (Lamiaceae) in mice Joshua Oloruntobi IMORU1*, Ayodeji Oluwabunmi ORIOLA2, Idris Ajayi OYEMITAN1 and Moses Atanda AKANMU1 1Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Pharmacy, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria. 2Drug Research and Production Unit, Faculty of Pharmacy, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria Vitex doniana is used ethnomedicinally for the management of madness, insanity, and epilepsy. This study was undertaken to evaluate the sedative, hypothermic and anxiolytic effects of crude aqueous leaf extract of Vitex doniana (AVD) in mice, as well as its rapid radical scavenging property. Doses of 250, 500, and 1000 mg/kg AVD were adopted for the pharmacological testing in mice of both sexes (n=6). The behavioural effects of the extract in the open field apparatus were determined. AVD was evaluated for its anxiolytic effect, using elevated T- maze, staircase, and hole-board models. While the sedative and hypothermic effects of the extract in mice were determined by assessments of ketamine-induced sleeping time and rectal temperature respectively. AVD was subjected to rapid radical scavenging test using thin-layer chromatography (TLC)-bioautography. The results showed AVD to have an inhibitory effect on CNS in the open field test. AVD demonstrated anxiolytic effect at 250 mg/kg, and sedative effect at 500 and 1000 mg/kg. The sedative effect of AVD at 500 and 1000 mg/kg was further revealed in ketamine-induced sleeping time and rectal temperature. AVD also showed strong free radical scavenging property attributed to the presence of fatty acid esters, terpenes, phenolics, and phenolic glycosides. AVD is acutely non-toxic and it possesses significant sedative, hypothermic and anxiolytic effects, which could in part be due to the presence of rapid free radical scavenging compounds, thus, providing pharmacological ...
