I agree that some sort of regulation and standardization is probably the key to establishing herbal preparations as a serious alternative to pharmaceutical drugs. However, we should avoid copying the current patent-based regulatory system for medicines that excludes a large part of the world's inhabitants from healthcare. Instead, universal access to the latter should be the primary focus.

Yes, I agree. If it was possible with food products (to some extent), it shouldn't be much different in the case of herbal preparations. Setting the quality threshold and enabling universal access.
