Introduction: Aim of the reviewing was to examine the use of "Traditional medicines" in sports. Performance enhancing drugs are the major threat to integrity of sports. Sports always say that "essential thing is not conquering but fighting well". While in reality there is a huge pressure on athletes as well as on their coaches. They have to win the competition and for that they resort to many unfair means to win the competition. This gives rise to misuse of medicines and other traditional drugs. Many methods have developed to detect the cases of doping, but every time newer cases came in to light. Many athletes use traditional medicines to hide their act of doping. In this review we have surveyed about the use of such traditional medicines being used in doping. At some places even nutritional supplements are also classified as performance enhancing drugs.
