I saw that there are a lot of advices in regard of allowed medicines: Buddhist Monastic Code II Chapter 5 Medicine
Do anybody has resources about detail preparations of "allowed" medicine?
Is there still a practice in regard of this by Bhikkhus today and in how far?
Are there professional doctors (ev. Bhikkhus) which are usually consulted by the community?

Medicinal Plants (Cambodia)
Nomad RSI’s medicinal plants programme contributes to the protection of the knowledge of healing plants used by the Bunongs. The organisation works in collaboration with traditional healers (kruu boran), who are brought together to share their knowledge and experiences. They also work with Nomad RSI to collect plants, roots and seeds of useful plants, establishing medicinal plant gardens within their own villages, and a model one in the regional capital, Sen Monorom.
A crucial aspect of this project is to gain recognition and acceptance of Kruu Boran (= anicent/traditional Guru/Doctor) as valued and legitimate first-level health providers, often the only ones available. Among Bunong communities, illness in general is often understood as created by the anger of spiritual forces. In such cases, traditional healers are often consulted. However, the Bunong do also use biomedicines, which sometimes proves to be very problematic without a basic form of training, and do not rely on a single health system. People use the available medical resources pragmatically. But there is almost no cooperation between both biomedical and traditional health structures at the village level. Traditional healers and their practices are not recognized nor integrated in the national public health system of Cambodia. Today, however, the Ministry of Health, gives official backing, through the National Centre for Traditional Medicine with whom Nomad RSI works closely.
