Preface

(First Edition)

Herbs and other locally available material has been used for relief of various ailments from the earliest times. In fact these practices have gradually developed into a system of Medicine-Ayurveda. The methods and practices of healthful living and herbs for relief of ailments enunciated/discussed in Ayurveda are in vogue in Indian house holds even today. These have more or less become a way of life for our people.

Though certain plants of medicinal importance are utilised for relief of certain ailments but people are generally not aware about the uses of large number of other such plants growing in their surroundings. As such creating awareness, identification and use of medicinal plants growing in the villages have been taken up as an important aspect of Community Health Care Research Programme of Central Council for Research in Ayurveda and Siddha.

In further persuance of the programme, the Institute has initiated a planned study to assess the utilisation of local herbal resources for the primary medicare. The booklet “Common Healing Herbs” has been designed to acquaint the people of the village selected for study to utilise the local herbs for relief of their common ailment. The simple clinical uses of from the Ayurvedic literature, Folk practices in these herbs growing in these villages have been compiled areas and also from published scientific research work. Only such prescriptions, which are considered safe, easy to formulate from local resources and at the same time effective in the treatment of common ailments of the area, have been selected. It is expected that this approach of treatment will further augment use of local herbs for treatment of common diseases in a particular area and help in preserving/propagating the plants of medicinal importance.

We are grateful to the chairman and members of the Technical Committee for their guidance in finalisation of this publication. We are also thankful to the Director, Central Council for Research in Ayurveda and Siddha, New Delhi for appreciation of the work and encouragement and permission for publication of the booklet.
