Integrating modern, traditional medicines to treat Covid-19

KUALA LUMPUR: While scientists and medical experts are racing against time to develop a vaccine for Covid-19, traditional and complementary medicine (T&CM) treatment modalities are also being tried out in certain countries like China to treat the disease.

In China’s Hubei province, where the coronavirus outbreak was first detected late last year, medical doctors are said to have combined traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine to treat Covid-19 patients, with 95 percent of them reportedly recovering from the disease.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) Traditional Medicine Strategy 2014-2023, which recognises the contribution of T&CM to health, acknowledges that there is a significant and increasing demand for its practices and practitioners worldwide.

Sunway TCM Centre director Dr Lim Ren Jye said people in many countries are using T&CM, due to cultural and historical influences, as a complementary therapy and traditional medicine as it is one of their primary sources of healthcare.

In Malaysia, he said, almost a third of Malaysians living in urban areas are consulting T&CM practitioners to treat their ailments as some of them experience adverse effects from western medicines.

“However, for Covid-19 patients, the use of herbal remedies and traditional methods can be evaluated only to complement the recovery process and not as a specific treatment for the disease,“ he added.
