of the
medicine? 3.To what extent
do the community
members utilized
medicine? 4.Is there a

utilization of
medicine? 5.Is there a
between profile
variable and
level of
awareness on

between profile
variable and
utilization of

program can
be developed?

HYPOTHESIS This null hypothesis will be tested at 0.05 level of significance. Ho: There is no significant relationship between the knowledge and extent of utilization of complementary medicine.

Ho: There is no significant relationship between profile variable and level of awareness on complementary medicine.

Profile Variables Review of Related Literature Herbal medicine is defined as the use of natural herbs and plants for the treatment or prevention of diseases, disorders and for the promotion of good health. “The principle that we are adopting is a synergy between the modalities of Western and traditional eastern medicine, which is already becoming the trend in the medical field in Western countries. It’s ironic, because we Filipinos still believe in writing for something to happen abroad before adopting it here”
“Our traditional medical practices have been partly lost to us, of course, because of colonization. It is only now that it is reemerging at this level, giving us a chance to utilize what our forefathers have practiced.”
said Dr.Eliseo Banaynan The Philippine Department of Health spearheaded the research, development and promotion with active participation of its line agency, the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine and the Bureau of Food and Drugs. After thorough evaluation, research and years of clinical trials, the department has approved 10 plants for use by the public as alternative herbal medicines for various diseases ranging from asthma, hypertension to diabetes The herbs endorsed by the Philippine Department of Health are:

1. Akapulko for fungal infections such as eczema, itchiness and scabies.
2. Ampalaya or bitter gourd for diabetes, gout and rheumatism.
3. Bawang or garlic for hypertension and lowering of cholesterol levels
4. Bayabas or guava as anthelminthic, astringent and antiseptic.
5. Lagundi for asthma and rheumatism.
6. Niyog-niyogan for intestinal infestation.
7. Sambong as a diuretic. It can also help lower blood pressure.
8. Tsaang Gubat for intestinal motility and other stomach disorders.
9. Ulasimang Bato for gout.
10. Yerba Buena as analgesic for pain relief.
“The relationship between academic and practical intelligence”. The article suggest that among the respondents, time spent developing academic skills may be perceived as taking away from time that needs to be spent developing practical skills and vice versa. The result is that academic and practical intelligence can develop independently or even at odds with one another. According to a study of John Porter [1973], status attainment is directly related to occupational status. Occupational status and the attainment thereof is perhaps the core idea of status attainment.
Occupation is often a strong indicator of education and income
Those who are unemployed usually used complementary medicines. For those who are employed much preferred to used pharmacological medicines which has the faster relief of some illnesses, knowing that they have the money to buy those medicines.

X – each individual raw score

Pearson’s scale
1.0 perfect relationship
.91-.99 very high relationship
.70-.90 high relationship
