One of the most famous hymns, The Healing Plants in Rig Veda (10-97), states that herbs, and amulets made out of them, could work wonders for health. They could treat almost every disease, flush out poisons from the blood, and even contribute to one's progress and prosperity in life. The Western world is now using Indian herbs in some of their popular medicines for jaundice and heart problems.
The Healing Power of Plants lists 67 commonly found trees, plants, shrubs and herbs whose roots, bark, leaves, seeds and fruits can provide the safe healing touch to most ailments. Some of them include: the common cough and cold, high blood pressure, diabetes, digestive issues, urinary infections, eczema, toothache/stomach ache/headache, joint pains, sexual health, and even methods for pregnancy and birth control.
It also highlights the significance and benefits of each plant in Astrology, Tantra and Vastu. This is one book you must have handy at all times.
Plants are vital to human life. They contribute in many ways to our welfare as they offer substantial benefits without asking. anything in return. Therefore, it becomes obligatory on our part to water, nurture, and protect them as best as we can.
I have tried to bring out the importance of some significant plants in relation to their medicinal values, and the role they are assigned in astrology, tantra and vastu. I am hopeful that their preventive, healing and curative aspects will prove beneficial to readers of this book. It contains brief descriptions of several common trees, plants, shrubs, herbs, and their individual medicinal properties that can provide the healing touch to human beings.
However, while most of the treatment methods prescribed in this book can be easily followed by readers, I have indicated that some of them should only be carried out under the advice and supervision of vaidyas, ayurvedic practitioners, or your family doctor. It has been my sincere endeavour to provide you with authentic information about these plants, on the basis of several ancient scriptures, texts and books. I have also drawn upon the knowledge I have gained through my interactions with experts in horticulture, ayurveda and naturopathy.
I am thankful to all well-wishers who inspired me to spread the knowledge about, and benefits of, the healing power of plants. My deep thanks also goes to my publisher Yogi Impressions, Dr. C. M. Solanki, and the late Shri Shailesh Dave, without whose wholehearted support, this book would not have been in your hands.
