Aloe vera, a juicy cactus species, produces gel and latex that have a therapeutic role in health issues through antioxidant, anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory activities, and also provides a viable alternative approach to the treatment of various types of diseases.

Traditional medicine plays an important role in the treatment of different types of diseases. Nowadays, the appeal to complementary medicine and natural products is in rapid growth across the globe, given that they are effective and cheap and have fewer side effects. Different types of medicinal plants and their constituents are used to treat diseases from ancient times. The significance of plants and their constituents in the healing of diseases has been discussed in Ayurveda, Unani and in Chinese medicine, as well as in other religious books. In Islam, plants are considered to have significant value in solving health problems, and Mohamad has recommended various herbs for curing diseases such as Nigella sativa seeds and dates.
