Description

From the Jacket:

The stress and strain of modern-day living takes its toll on our mind and body. Lack of time and patience make us resort to methods, which provide instant relief, and often we forget that the answer to a problem is effective cure. Modern medicine has made many discoveries yet the side-effects of many of the wonder drugs cannot be ignored. This book, on medicinal plants and their curative powers, is a compilation of articles written for Asian Age by the author. The articles are interesting and informative and throw light on the little known facts about various herbs.

What makes this book stand out amongst countless number of books on alternative medicine is that healing properties of each medicinal plant has been explained in detail, and many of them are from ancient traditional books on medicine of the Indian as well as the Chinese cultures. The readers are also made aware about the importance of the many treasured herbs and also the issue of patent regarding the same. A fountain of knowledge on medicinal plants, this book is a must for professional as well as personal collection.

Preface

When the newspaper Asian Age was first brought out in 1994, on 16 February, I was invited to write a fortnightly column on Alternative Medicine for the newspaper. I did this for one year.

The articles I wrote in the column brought readers closer to medicinal plants and I received many letters from people asking either for more information or for help regarding their problems. These articles covered a wide range of subjects. The article on “Spices from your kitchen cabinet have medicinal properties also” elicited widespread interest. The public was informed about the anti-fatigue properties of the plant Truchphus zeylanicus, discovered by the Kani tribes. This is now available in the market as a medicine.

An article entitled “India should get a patent on haldi as an anti-inflammatory drug” was printed well before two scientists in USA obtained a patent which was then challenged by the Government of India. After spending an enormous amount of effort and money, India won the case. All this could have been avoided had heed been paid to this articles.

It is gratifying to note that the plants mentioned in the article “Plants can increase resistance to AIDS” are now being clinically evaluated for their beneficial effect on AIDS. The first article “Ancient Chinese text provides a new cure for malaria” was prophetic. Today, the three most effective drugs for treatment of malaria available to modern medicine are from Artemesia annua.

The use od medicinal plants in South America described in “Healing practices of Amazonian Indians” and the articles on “Western medicinal plants are equally effective” brought to the Indian public information about medicinal plants used abroad.

The present- day public will find the topics described in these columns interesting. It is for this reason that these fortnightly column write- ups have now been brought together in this publication entitled Herbs for Health and Healing.

I am grateful to the Editor- in Chief of Asian Age, Mr MJ Akbar, for granting me permission to publish these articles as a book. I hope that the readers today find this compilation as interesting and informative as the articles were to the readers of Asian Age.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
