While allopathic medicine is the preferred medicine of a large section of the Bangladesh population, various traditional medicine systems also are functional in Bangladesh, the chief among them being Ayurveda, Unani and homeopathy. These traditional medicinal systems rely mostly on plant-based medications, particularly Ayurveda and Unani. Both urban and rural people often combine allopathic medications with one or other of the traditional medicine systems or even home remedies or folk medicines, which are also essentially plant-based.
