Author(s): Omari Amuka, Paul Okemo, Alex Machocho, Paul Mbugua and Eliud NM Njagi and Anthony Nyamache
Abstract: The review focuses on the historical use of plants as medicine by human. The approach taken is based on the geographical location of various civilizations in which the plants are/were used as source of remedies throughout the five continents of the world. Majority of the views have been based on ethno practices. Topical issues and an overview cover medicinal plants, past and their present uses, use of antibiotics in allopathic medicine and development of antimicrobial and antifungal resistances to the drugs currently in use. In addition, issues on the emergence and reemergence of new and old diseases have also been covered.
