Abstract
The Inupiat of northwest Alaska, once dependent upon themselves for staying healthy and treating illness in a harsh environment, today have access to modern healthcare via an innovative hub system. The availability of modern healthcare and other human services has come at a cost, however, in terms of local Native control and the practice of traditional Native lifeways. Nurses and other healthcare providers outside the culture can improve the quality of care they provide by becoming culturally informed and providing culturally congruent care. Caring is assumed to be the central essence and primary activity of nursing. This study explored the life experiences of six Inupiat traditional healers in caring, health, illness, and healing. Ideas about caring are discussed, and ways of implementing these findings in the provision of quality care are suggested.

Abstract
The allopathic practitioner ignores energy-related phenomena and basically treats symptoms. Native American medicine, on the other hand, typically examines purported energy patterns, e.g., energy pathways in the body, energy-evoking herbs, energetic relationships between the clients and their natural environment.

Abstract
Herbs/Botanical plants are considered as God's gift to human beings in the form of natural medicines, like the one well known "Sanjeevani booti" described in Hindu Mythology. The traditional and ethno-veterinary practices have been in use for centuries, transferring the knowledge from generation to generation and they are accessible, easy to prepare and administer, with little or no cost at all. Even though the modern developments in therapeutic field brought about a rapid decline in traditional medicine, the plant-based remedies are still having a crucial role as potential source of therapeutic aids in health systems all over the world for both humans and animals. Among the 21,000 medicinal plants listed by the World Health Organization (WHO), 2500 species are native to India, which stands first in the production of medicinal herbs. This innumerable treasure of medicinal herbs brings India the distinction of 'the botanical garden of the world'. Nowadays immune-based therapies are gaining more importance than monovalent approaches which are having limited benefits. Apart from the actions like treating diseases, control of ecto- and endo-parasites, fertility enhancement, bone setting and poor mothering management, an array of herbal medicines have been reported which are having immunomodulatory effects like modulation of cytokine secretion, histamine release, immunoglobulin secretion, class switching, cellular co-receptor expression, lymphocyte expression, phagocytosis and so on. The present article describes in brief few of these important ones viz., ashwagandha, amla, tulsi, arjuna, aloe vera, garlic, turmeric, ginger, shatavari, neem, guduchi, kiwifruit, tut, kamala, palashlata, kokilaksha etc. being used for human and animal health benefits.
