Iran’s Herbal Show

Herbal medicine has long been introduced to the Iranians by leading physicians like Avicenna.

Therapeutic nature of a vast array of plants indigenous to Iran has turned this country into a center for natural remedies. Nevertheless, Iran seems to have a long path to beat to enjoy the countless benefits of this blessing.

The 2nd National Exhibition and Festival of Herbal Plants, Natural Products and Traditional Medicine saw its closing ceremony in the Iranian capital, Tehran.

According to Sourena Sattari, the event is aimed to promote proper consumption of herbal plans, indentify the potentials in herbal medicine, expand the industry, and encourage more export of the herbal medicine.

Over 353 companies have participated to offer their products and services. Mohammad Hassan Assareh, organizer of the exhibition, expressed dissatisfaction of the current volume of Iran’s herbal medicine export.

Synthetic drugs and technology-based therapies have, in some cases, exacerbated human’s welfare by giving rise to new diseases.

Iranian officials expressed hope that this exhibition will pave the way for a more extensive use of traditional medicine, so that the need to import vital, but banned, drugs to Iran will be obviated.
