The Kingdom of Thailand has its own system of traditional medicine called “Thai traditional medicine” (TTM). It originated during the Sukhothai period (1238-1377) and developed in parallel with the country as a means of national health care until the early 20th century.(1) The spread of modern medicine from the Western world to the East then led to a decline in the practice of traditional medicine in Thailand. As a result, modern medicine eventually replaced TTM and became Thailand’s mainstream health-care system while TTM was neglected for over 60 years until the revival of TTM began in the late 1970s.
