Kenyan government is still in the arguments for and against traditional healers; it is in the process of regulating herbal medicine. The use of plants as medicine has been used for decades by human beings in healing several ailments which exist among humanity. The processing of the medicine has been passed from generation to generation. Many Kenyans no longer use the herbal medicine due to introduction of pharmaceutical medicine. Most herbalists have testified that the herbal medicine is effective. Some Kenyans believe that herbal medicine is witchcraft since most traditional witchdoctors use plant related medicine to heal. The challenge to most herbalists is that they don’t have enough financial support to run their projects in the market.
