Herbs Benefits

Herbalism, that is, herbal theory, is a traditional medicinal or folk medicine practice based on the use of flora and plant extracts. Herbalism is also known as botanical medicine, medical medicine, herbal medicine, botany and phytoscience. Herbal or botanical medicine sometimes includes fungal or fungal and bee products, as well as minerals, shellfish, and some animal organs. The investigation of medications got from common sources is called Pharmacognosy.
Traditional use of medicines has been recognized as a way of learning about potential future medicines. In 2001, analysts distinguished 122 mixes utilized as standard medication that were derived from "ethnomedical" (ethno-medical) botanical sources; 80% of these compounds were used in the same or related way as traditional ethnographic medicine.

Many plants synthesize such essences that are useful for the maintenance of health of humans and other animals. These include aromatic extracts, most of which contain phenols (carbonic acid) or their oxygen-substituted derivatives, such as tannins (alkali of tree bark). Many secondary ones are metabolizable, of which at least 12,000 have been isolated - the number is estimated to be less than 10% of the total. In many cases, saplings such as alkaloids serve as tree-plant protection mechanisms against the robbery of micro-organisms, insects, and herbivores. Many herbs and spices used by humans to make food tasty contain useful medicinal compounds.

Likewise, "corruption, unseemly definition, or absence of comprehension about herbal and medication communications can prompt unfriendly responses that can now and then become hazardous or lethal".

Anthropology of Vaidyaki (Herbalism)

Since prehistoric times, lakhs of crores of people from all continents have used local plants and trees for the treatment of diseases. Medicinal herbs were found in the personal effects of the climber otzi the Iceman, whose body had been stored in the Swiss Alps for 5,300 years. These herbs appear to have been used to treat the parasites of their intestines. According to anthropological scientists, beings developed a tendency to use part of bitter vegetation to cure the disease.

Desi doctors often claim that they have learned to see sick animals by changing their food preferences and munching on such bitter vegetation, which they generally dislike. Biologists in the field produced evidence confirming this on the basis of supervision of a variety of species such as chimpanzees, poultry, sheep and butterflies. Terai gorillas take up 90% of their diet from the fruit of Aframomum melegueta, a

Relative plant of the ginger plant, which is a powerful microbial antidote, and it apparently keeps shingelosis and similar infectives away.
Researchers at Ohio Wesleyan University found that some birds scavenge their children with materials rich in microorganisms to protect them from harmful bacteria.
Sick animals seek out plants rich in secondary metabolites such as tannin and alkaloids. Since these phytochemicals often contain anti-viral (antiviral), anti-bacterial (antimicrobial), anti-fungal (antifungal) and anti-helminthic (antimicrobial) elements, the animals living in the forest are self- There may be a reliable case for therapy.
Some animals have a special digestive system, especially their digestive system is optimized in terms of dealing with the toxic elements of certain plants. For example, koalas may live on the leaves and branches of Eucalyptus, a tree that is dangerous to most animals. Even if a tree or plant is harmless to a particular animal, it may not be safe for humans to eat. There is a reasonable inference that the traditional collection of these discoveries was done by people related to the medicine of indigenous tribes, who were informed about the safety and information of the next generations.
The use of herbs and spices in food evolved as a response to the threat of food-borne microbes. Studies show that in tropical climates where there is a glut of germs, the dishes are the most spicy. In addition, spices that are the most potent antimicrobial are selected. [13] In all cultures, vegetables are less spicy than meat, as they are probably more resistant to spoilage.

The Greek and Roman medicinal practices preserved in the writings of Hippocrates and especially Galen gave the method to later Western medicine. Hippocrates advised the use of some simple herbal medicines along with fresh air, relaxation and a clean diet. On the other hand, Galen recommended large doses of a mixture of medicines, including botanical, animal and mineral materials. The Greek physician compiled the first European treatise De Materia Medica about the properties and uses of medicinal plants. E. No. In the first century, Dioscorides wrote a compendium of over 500 plants, which remained an official reference even in the 17th century. BC The fourth-century Greek book Theophrastus' Historia Plantarum, which established botany, remained similarly important to herbologists and botanists in later centuries.
