In a Press release posted from the Foreign Office, The Government Public Relations Department, Office of the Prime Minister on the May 10th, 2016 Titled “Use of Thai Herbs and Traditional Medicine in Healthcare”,  The country of Thailand has announced a new major promotion to share the knowledge and indigenous, traditional plant based medicine of Thailand with the world.

In SomaVeda® style Thai Yoga Therapy (Traditional Thai Massage) we use Thai herbs and medicines routinely in the therapeutic programs we practice. For example, in the Ayurveda based Thai style cleansing and or detox programs called Pancha Karma, we use the Nuad Prakhop Samun Praii herbs and poultices both dry and steamed to infuse medicine herb elements for bringing healing to the client.

In his national address to the country and Parliment on the 10th, Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha said that the “Government is giving a major boost to the use of medicinal plants and traditional Thai medicine in medical treatment. ”

He went on to say “that the promotion of traditional and herbal medicine aims to reduce the people’s medical expenses. Many Thai herbal plants have been developed to higher standards and integrated into primary health care. ”

This is a boon to the world. Many Thai Herbs have been scientifically and clinical proven to reduce or eliminate cancer.
