Abstract or description

Historical information on herbal medicines is underexploited and this is particularly true of the important resources of Arabic herbal medicines. Current research into Arabic medicinal plants as alternative medicine is limited and there is a lack of accurate translations and interpretations of herbal medicine texts. This research focuses on an investigation of Arabic herbal medicinal plants in relation to the problem of obesity. This paper demonstrates how text mining can help extract relevant concepts associated with Arabic herbal plants and obesity in order to discover associations between the herbal medicinal ingredients and obesity symptoms.
