Preface

Plants are not only our friends but they are necessary for the betterment of our environment and the mother earth.

There are millions of species of plants. Many of them home medicinal properties, though most of them are beneficial in one way or the other for mankind. We eat fruits, vegetables, cereals, which are products of plants.

The idea of using medicinal plants to treat livestock is not new. Many of the active ingredients in chemically manufactured drugs were originally derived from plant compounds. Also, in many developing countries, medicinal plants are still being used on a regular basis. There is a renewed interest, especially in developed countries, in using plants to treat livestock, pets, and humans.

Many people believe that plants are less toxic and safer than manufactured drugs. Many people believe that plants are more natural than manufactured drugs. Medicinal plants can be made at home and are less expensive than manufactured drugs. In developing, medicinal plants often are more accessible than manufactured drugs.

Medicinal plants are generally safe and effective for livestock. But it is also true that very few have been researched for their efficacy and toxicity. When reading about the plants please remember that-there is incomplete toxicity information on most of these plants; there is incomplete efficacy information on most of these plants; and the toxic dose and potentially effective dose could be very close.

Before going through this book, you should know that drugs usually provide temporary relief from disease. They also cause serious side-effects or after-effects in the body. Constant consumption of sedatives or pain killers may paralyze your nerve action and may cause mental derangement. Constant use or antibiotics may also produce different disorders like skin eruptions etc.

It did not mean that drugs are useless but one should know that depending on drugs is always not beneficial. Prevention is always better then cure.

In this book, besides uncommon plants, some common plants with medicinal value are discussed like garlic, lemon, ginger, basil etc. which are available everywhere and are boon for the human beings from the almighty.

These plants have been tested and certified by several scientists and researchers throughout the world.

Hope, readers will find this book very useful for their family. If there is need, you can consult a specialist or can write to me, but please do not come without prior appointment on phone.

With thanks and regards.
