Traditional Medicine is a business and its main focus is to profit only, it has no intentions to cure patients what so ever
Crooks

Pro

To clarify:

[1] Traditional medicine is the sum total of the knowledge, skills, and practices based on the theories, beliefs, and experiences indigenous to different cultures, whether explicable or not, used in the maintenance of health as well as in the prevention, diagnosis, improvement or treatment of physical and mental illness.

Con has the burden of proving that traditional medicine is not a business. I hold the burden of refuting his arguments. As of now, Con has only mentioned the topic. I shall wait until the next round for his arguments.

Con failed to provide any arguments and did not meet his burden of proof. I have had nothing to disprove, so I have met my burden.

Sorry, I meant traditional medicine has helped improve my health quite a lot. In the past, conventional medicine in my case usually required additional medications to help ease the symptoms of other medications which only made me sicker. I'm all for traditional medicine and advocate it to my family and friends.

Traditional medicine generally treats the body, rather than treating the symptoms or the disease..

I believe traditional medicine is used only to manage the symptoms but not treat the cause. I am mainly for effective natural medicine practiced around the world which can be very effective. I'm living proof of that.
