Govt. Medical College, Jagdalpur C.G.
Herbel medicines have come a long way since the days of the ancient herbalism the evidence of which goes back about 60,000 years. The plant kingdom has provided an endless source of medicinal plants – earlier used in crude forms but today even the active principal has been successfully isolated. This gives a lead to transform these herbals into evidence based medicine that can keep pace with today’s modern medicine. This policy will help in enriching our rich ancient culture of traditional medicines to be utilized to its maximum extent. This may also help, to provide a pharmacological basis for the herbals and thus the knowledge of science of ancient herbalism should not vanish in antiquity.
