Looking back into history:
Humans have used medicinal plants for thousands of years to heal themselves. It was in the 1800s when scientists isolated morphine from opium, which led to the belief that a single, non-living compound in a plant was responsible for its healing properties. This helped create the biomedical model of pharmacotherapy that still remains in medicines today. Eventually most scientists believed that there was no need to use plants in drugs because chemists could synthesize compounds that were more potent (and often more toxic) than the natural products offered by nature. Today most pharmaceutical drugs are synthetic compounds that often have serious side effects. The public is getting fed up with trying to deal with things like opioid addiction and the horrendous side effects of pharmaceutical medications.
The 1990s witnessed a swing back toward a more holistic perspective in medicine.
According to the WHO (World Health Organization) between 65% and 80% of the populations in developing countries currently use medicinal plants as remedies.
