Some of the countries have acquired the traditional medicine (TM) from other countries. In some countries, their traditional medicine is stronger even than the official system. It has been observed that the traditional medical systems are also not being practiced in isolation .They are doing one or the other way integration. In most of the countries, TM is practiced as Complementary /Alternative Medicine (CAM). WAIM has felt the need to systematize the integration. India has rich heritage of a group of traditional medicine and healing known as Indian system of medicine (ISM).The Government of India has put all such system in a department known as AYUSH. In integration of traditional medicine; we have taken in account the model of Indian system of medicine. The following drug and drugless systems are involved in integrated traditional medicine.
