The popular saying that "one man’s food is another man’s poison" is perhaps true about what is conceived and understood of "Alternative Medicine" in Nigeria. From different perspectives, the technical conception of the subject varies. On the global level, the universally expression of the subject as "Alternative Medicine" may in terms of belief and terminology stand uniquely different in Nigeria. As a result, a study of the jurisprudence of alternative medicine in the country becomes relevant. Such a study is also apt because of the stunt clarity to be gained on the legal status of this special medical practice in the nation. When one comes to Nigeria and desires to discuss the subject of Alternative Medicine, basic understanding to be put in mind is thus the focus of exposition in this research. Interestingly, it is widely acknowledged, both formally and informally, that traditional medicine, as it would be better called in the nation, is a reality that must be accommodated in Nigeria.
