About this book

Language: English

About 80% of the population in India is reported to use Ayurveda and medicinal plants to help meet their primary health care needs and the safety of this tradition is attributed to time tested use, textual reference and further endorsed by scientific studies. India is one of the few countries that have developed services of traditional medicine through the official planning process. With the growing use of Ayurveda, the safety and efficacy as well as quality control have become major concerns and are being addressed systematically by scientific evidence. A number of scientists and institutions across the country have significantly contributed to research and development on cultivation, conservation and validation of safety and efficacy of medicinal plants. This compendium brings together contributions from diverse interrelated fields and will be a useful reference for scientists, academics, and practitioners.
