People are turning to traditional medicine, and in particular the use of indigenous herbs for treatment.

The art of herbal medicine isn’t completely lost. Our ancestors went to great lengths to retain their knowledge of medicinal and edible plants so that we may continue to use them. Enslaved Africans risked their very safety to smuggle plants of cultural, spiritual, and medical importance during the Middle Passage. The Irish labored to protect their own ancient herbal legacies against the destruction of repeated invasions. It’s a testament to the resilience of people that they preserved their healing traditions, despite being faced with incredible hardship such as forced migration from their motherlands. For some, their histories go farther back than any textbook cares to mention, and their herbal knowledge has been passed down through oral tradition.

South Africans too have a long history of using herbs for medicinal uses. From Buchu brandy for upset stomachs and colds and flu to Sceletium for anxiety and depression, the examples are many.

Of recent importance is the research being done on African Wormwood (Artemisia afra) and it possible use as a natural preventative and even possible cure for covid-19! Another traditional herb worth mentioning is cancer bush. Constituents in Sutherlandia have antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anticancer properties. Sutherlandia is also known as cancer bush for its purported use as a cancer treatment. There are case reports of Sutherlandia’s ability to reduce fatigue in cancer patients.
