Medicine from your back garden

Post by Sorey on Tue Nov 08, 2011 7:17 pm

Have you heard of Calotropis gigantea, Cassia fistula or Brahunia recimosa? On hearing these names, you will be most probably perplexed, unless you are a graduate in Botany. These are the scientific names of Crown flower, Golden shower tree and Mountain ebony respectively, which are generally seen in your surroundings.

We don't care for these plants except for the beauty of their flowers. But they are plants worth growing in your garden, not just for the flowers, but for the medicinal quality of their bark, leaves, root, stem or leaves.Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, makes use of the medicinal qualities of these indigenous plants. This healthcare system is based on a theory of balancing vatha, pitha and kapha, the major three humours in the body in order to attain a perfectly healthy condition. Medicines extracted from different parts of these plants are used in the treatment for various diseases which ranges from common cold to deadly cancerous growth. Medicinal plants play a major role in the Ayurvedic skin care treatment, psoriasis treatment and spondylitis ayurvedic treatment

If you think that preserving the medicinal herbs is the job of those who work in the medical sector, you are thoroughly wrong. It is not a difficult task to identify the plants which are of medicinal quality and preserve them in your garden. Remember, nurturing them in your garden is like investing in your health.
