Ethnomedicine is the study or comparison of traditional medicine practices among different ethnic groups, particularly indigenous peoples. Ethnomedicine is sometimes used interchangeably with traditional medicine. Ethnomedical research is interdisciplinary, employing ethnobotany and medical anthropology methodologies in the study of indigenous remedies. Ethnomedicine is the study and translation of health-related information and theories that people inherit and learn as a result of their cultural upbringing. Each community has its own medical culture, or "ethnomedicine," which shapes the medical common sense, or logic, of that society. In the recent decade, ethnobiology and ethnomedicine have seen a huge growth in research interest and activities. Scientific research in ethnobiology and ethnomedicine has made significant contributions to understanding traditional subsistence and medicinal knowledge and practice since the disciplines' beginning.
