Himalayan Edible Medicinal Plants has four chapters in the beginning followed by description on about 150 plants with coloured photographs, traditionally used by the people of the Himalayas including N-E Himalaya.
The main focus of Himalayan Edible Medicinal Plants is on establishing scientific validation of traditional wisdom on the plants, which people living in the Himalayas had inherited since the immemorial past. But certainly much of this wisdom has been coming down of the ages. These people, through their intuitive power, had known the value of various plants and revealed the benefits of consuming these plants from natural and man-made habitats for the welfare of the people but without according any explanation to the benefits.
One of the most interesting aspects of this traditional knowledge had been that wherever needed, there was development of wisdom for applying some kind of processing method in order to avoid any adverse effects on being consumed as raw. Almost all the traditionally consumed plants have a distinct effect on health.
