The 2nd National Exhibition and Festival of Herbal Plants, Natural Products and Traditional Medicine has held in the Iranian capital, Tehran, Press TV has reported. More than 353 companies participated in the year's exhibition to offer their products and services.
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, said Iran's Vice-President in science and technology affairs Sourena Sattari.
It has been proven that using traditional medicine, especially herbal remedies, is a best way to cure certain diseases.
Iran has been always known as one of the pioneers in making connection between its native traditional and conventional medicine.
Medicinal plants have greatly attracted Iranians' attention from ancient times. Leading Iranian physicians like Abu Ali Sina, known as Avicenna in the West, believed that there is no cure for any pain without any herbal therapy
Having five major climates, Iran is among the most geographically diverse countries in the world. It is so diverse especially when it comes to the natural herbal remedies it produces.
This astounding diversity in Iran's geography allows the country to host more than 8000 species of plants and around 2100 of which are used in medicine.
Many of Iran's most precious herbal treasures are plants found nowhere else in the world.
