KEEP HEALTHY WITH OUR HOMEGROWN MEDICINE - PART 3

MENGOBSERVASI TUMBUHAN OBAT
OBSERVING THE MEDICINAL PLANTS


Alam kita telah menyediakan beragam bahan untuk berbagai keperluan manusia, termasuk sebagai penyedia bahan obat-obatan.
Saat ini kesadaran masyarakat akan keamanan pangan serta kampanye untuk kembali ke alam (Back to Nature). Hal ini  membuat pemanfaatan tumbuh-tumbuhan sebagai sumber bahan obat semakin intensif. 
Setidaknya sebagai pertolongan pertama pada beberapa penyakit atau yang dikenal sebagai 'Home Remedy'.

Our nature provides so various materials for so many purposes, including as a provider of materials for medicine.
Right now, public awareness of food safety as well as the campaign 'back to nature'. It makes the use of plants as a source of medicinal ingredients be intensified.
At least as a first aid to some disease or well known as the Home Remedy.



Masyarakat mulai memahami kelebihan dari bahan alami, serta efek samping dari bahan-bahan sintetis yang ada pada obat-obatan kimia. 
Bahan alami yang berasal dari umbuhan dianggap lebih aman, mudah diperoleh, murah dan sederhana.
Berbagai kelebihan bahan alami ini akhirnya menjadikan masyarakat lebih memilih obat-obatan tradisional yang alami, yang lebih kita kenal dengan istilah jamu.

Peoples are starting to understand the advantages of natural ingredients, as well as the side effect of the synthetic ingredients that exist in chemical drugs. Natural ingredients are more safe, easy to find, cheap and simple. So many advantages of this natural ingredients make peoples prefer to natural-traditional medicines, its familiar or well known as 'Jamu' (herbs). 



Banyak tumbuhan dikenal secara luas sebagai bahan obat dan digunakan sejak dahulu, karena telah teruji secara empiris.

Berbagai tumbuhan yang telah teruji secara empiris diteliti lebih lanjut dan diuji secara klinis di laboratorium. 
Beberapa bahan bahkan telah dikembangkan lebih lanjut menjadi produk fitofarmaka atau obat herbal terstandar.

A lot of plants are well known as medicinal plants and have been used from long time ago, because they have been empirically tested.
Various plants that have been tested empirically observed further and also clinically tested in the laboratory. 
Several materials have been developed even further into phytopharmaca products or standardized herbs.

Mentha arvensis var Javanica

Saya beruntung mempunyai kesempatan mengunjungi dua pabrik jamu terbesar di Indonesia. 
Di situ saya belajar mengenai banyak hal seputar jamu. 
Jamu semula hanya digunakan sebagai obat alternatif yang murah dan hanya dikonsumsi masyarakat yang kurang mampu.
Namun saat ini, peminat jamu semakin bertambah banyak dari berbagai kalangan masyarakat.

I'm lucky I have had an opportunity to visiting two largest herbs factories in Indonesia.
I learned a lot of things about natural-traditional medicine (Jamu).
Basically, Jamu is only used as an alternative medicine that consumed by the poor peoples with the low price.
But right now, more and more people are interested in consuming Jamu.



Dua dekade terakhir penelitian dan pengembangan terhadap produk herbal sangat intensif dilakukan di Indonesia.
Penelitian telah dilakukan oleh Perguruan Tinggi, Lembaga Penelitian, Perusahaan Swasta melalui divisi Litbangnya, maupun secara mandiri oleh perorangan.
Fokus penelitian bervariasi dari mulai eksplorasi bahan, kandungan bahan aktif, modifikasi produk jamu, budidaya tumbuhan obat, pengemasan, dan masih banyak lagi.
Hasil dari penelitian tersebut semakin memperkaya khasanah obat tradisional Indonesia.
Dengan inovasi dan manajemen yang baik citra sederhana dari jamu pun mulai terangkat menjadi produk unggulan.

The last two decades, researches and developments in herbal product carried out intensively in Indonesia.
The researches are carried out by Universities, Research Center, Companies in their R and D division, and also independent researches.
Focus of the researches are in a wide range from exploration the materials, active component, cultivation, product modification, packing and many more.
All result from these researches have been enriching the treasures of traditional medicine in Indonesia
With innovation and good management, the inferior image of Jamu have changed into a superior.

    1. Saya kira begitu, itu kita temukan tumbuh liar di Dataran tinggi Dieng. Saat ditanam di dataran rendah daunnya cenderung mengecil agak sedikit membulat.
