The lives of traditional Malays are always circled with various
incidents that can cause a person to experience various diseases.
A disease can be cured through medical methods. Since disease
can be avoided, Malay credentials believe there are several ways in
which the disease can be avoided. Hence, there are some tips that
allow the Malay community to practice the tips to achieve a better
life. In traditional Malay medicine, the use of many tips is practiced.
Tips are not only used for treating ailments but have many other
functions. Tips are often used for the purpose of maintaining
a personal beauty, a taste of cuisine and so on. The tips used by
ordinary Malaysians use the many herbs that grow in the area of
the home. Knowledge of this herbaceous plant can be used as a cure
for illness. Therefore, the use of herbs in the tips is widespread.
Tips are derived from one generation to one generation. Practical
delivery is often done to facilitate a new generation of practicing
the tips. Hence, one does not need a detailed study on the use of
herbs but is sufficiently illustrated by the previous generation
either in the village community or in the city. In everyday life, there
are just new tips.
The history of the practice of hints is still unknown because
there is no clear evidence of the fact that since humans have
practiced hints. But what can be said, tips have been around since
people began to know the importance of tips. In the past man was
exposed to all dangers. Animism and Hindu influence have led the
local community to believe every place they want to explore has
certain powers such as a waiter or a ghost. These powers if not
presented with a presentation will cause a person to get the spread
of the disease. Therefore, the community has already created a tip
that is used to protect themselves from harm. Then after people are
attacked by a variety of diseases, they are trying to maintain their
health. Because they are susceptible to various diseases, preventive
measures have been implemented. Hence, many herbs have been
used as a cure for diseases. The effectiveness of tips in life has led
people to create some tips on how to look after their own beauty.
These tips are widely practiced by women to look always beautiful
and interesting. In addition, the tips can also make a person healthy.
Tips keep on changing and not only focusing on body care but
covers all aspects of everyday life.
Before the Malay community embraced Islam, the influence of
animism and Hinduism was so thick. The influence of this belief
enabled some of the beliefs that led the Malays to fear and want
protection. The beliefs of animism believe that every place they
want to explore has many external elements such as waiter, pod
or ghost. They also believe these elements will cause a striker to
attack someone. Therefore, the Malay community has been looking
for a way to avoid the illness that may be present. Hence, they have
found some tips that intend to give the waiter. Among the tips that
are still practiced today are to tear down homes or dwellings so that
family members living there will not get any harm or illness. After
the advent of Islam, the belief in such elements is diminishing. The
Malay community began to believe that every illness was the result
of an unhealthy body that either did not care for our own health
or there were external elements such as weather or infection.
Therefore, the Malay community has begun to create some tips to
keep yourself healthy. Then the use of tips continues to be expanded
and not just a matter of health.
