That common or garden flower, the touch-me-not (Mimasa pudica), is one of the most efficacious in healing a range of disorders, particularly gynaecological ones. It has been in use in India for hundreds of years, but with the advent of modern medicine, is gradually disappearing from people's knowledge. There are many more such plants which have been a source of healing and are no longer used for their medicinal purposes.
Concerned about fast vanishing local health traditions, Shodhini, a network of women's health activists, came together in search of a woman-centred approach as an alternative to the prevailing dominant systems of health care. Touch me, Touch-me-not is the result of their research. A unique compilation of plants and their medicinal value, the remedies in this book are the result of over eight years of treating women across the country for everything from vaginal discharge to menstrual disorders, uterine complaints, urinary tract infections and other ailments.
