Abstract

A cross sectional-analytic design was utilized in this study. Twenty eight (28) adults aged 20 to 45 years old residing in Bagong Bayan District, Dasmarinas, Cavite in 2016 were chosen as respondents using two-stage cluster sampling. A questionnaire guided interview was the instrument utilized and data was analysed using frequency, proportion, mean, range, and chi-square. Results showed that knowledge on herbal medicine had no significant relationship with self-medication with herbal medicine. It was recommended that further studies should be done to explore the correlation between herbal medicine knowledge and use in Dasmarinas, Cavite. The variables between cultural beliefs and self-medication with herbal medicine could also be explored.
