1.    Herbal Medicine

Health is the most basic human need. To maintain health or treat the disease, humans need medicine. Medicines and nurses that are now widely used are modern medicines that use synthetic chemical drugs and sophisticated tools. Nevertheless, modern medicine has many side effects for humans. The existence of modern medicine is growing, threatening the existence of traditional medicine that has long existed, Especially in Indonesia. On the other hand, referring to the philosophy of Eastern medicine, human existence is inseparable from the elements of the universe, which include water, fire, earth and air. The existence of man in the middle of life must be viewed holistically. When humans are disturbed by their health, the harmony of their lives is disturbed. It is at this time that man needs medicine to restore his health1 .

Traditional medicines use many natural elements such as plants, animals, minerals etc. Traditional medicine has side effects that are still acceptable to the human body so that it does not harm. Traditional herbal medicine is also the forerunner of modern medicine. Modern medicine developed from traditional medicine over the years.

The chemicals now used for medicine are mostly derived from chemicals contained by plants. According to who (World Health Organization) the definition of herbs is a plant whose plant parts are leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds, stems, wood, bark, roots, rhizomes or other parts of the plant, which may be entirely fragmented6.

While the definition of herbal medicine is the use of drugs to reduce, eliminate disease or cure a person from disease by using parts of the plant such as seeds, flowers, leaves, stems and roots which are then processed into herbal medicinal plants. Herbal medicine is part of Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) mendefinisikan CAM as a diverse group of medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not generally considered part of conventional medicine.

2.    Indonesian Natural Medicine

Indonesian Natural Medicine consists of herbal medicine and modern medicine Natural Indonesia. Herbal medicine is a traditional Indonesian medicine based on empirical data and does not require scientific to clinical proof. However, but must meet the security criteria in accordance with the requirements that have been set, the efficacy has been proven based on data empirical and must meet applicable quality requirements. Herbal medicine generally consists of 5-50 medicinal plants in powders, pills, drinks or liquids from several plants. Examples: Jamu Mrs. Mener, Antangin and Kuku Bima Gingseng (Rahayuda, 2016).

Standardized Herbal Medicine (OHT) is a traditional medicine that has been proven to be efficacy and safety pre-clinically (against experimental animals) and passed both acute and chronic toxicity tests. OHT is made from standardized materials such as extracts that meet quality parameters and are made in a hygienic way. For example: Reject angina, Diapet, Fitolac and Deepness (Rahayuda, 2016).

Phytoarmaka is a traditional medicine that has been tested for its efficacy through pre-clinical trials (in experimental animals) and clinical trials (in humans) and proven its safety through toxicity tests. Preclinical test itself follows several tests, namely: efficacy and toxicity tests, pharmaceutical technology tests to determine standardized identity or raw materials. Phytoarmaka is produced hygienically, quality according to established standards. Examples: Stimuno, Tensigard, Rheumaneer, X-gra and Nodiar (Rahayuda, 2016; Satria, 2013).

Traditional medicine is generally safer than modern medicine, because the content in traditional medicine is considered not so harsh than modern medicine. This is one of the reasons people choose to use traditional medicine. According to research conducted by Ismiyana (2013), People consider traditional medicine safer because it is made simply and does not contain chemicals. Basically, the principle of using traditional medicine is almost the same as modern medicine, if not used appropriately will bring bad effects. So, although traditional medicine is considered relatively safer than modern medicine, it still needs to be considered the intensity of its use.

Because not all herbs have properties and are safe to consume (Satria, 2013; Oxorn and Forte, 2010). As with using modern medicine, the use of traditional medicine must be rational and pay attention to the accuracy of its use. This is stipulated in Law No. 36 of 2009 on Health article 104 which states that the use of traditional medicines and medicines must be done rationally.
