Plants are an integral part of human life and civilization from time immemorial.

Worldwide many researchers in other articles have given in depth researches on medicinal plants like Melia azedarach, Bidens pilosa, Galinsoga parviflora, Spermacoce ocymoides, Oldenlandia corymbosa, Mitracarpus villosus, Coriandrum sativm, Thymus fallax, Angelica sinesis, Ligusticum chuanxiong, wines etc. The results are quite startling and strong corroborate the traditional claims of these plants in curing the human diseases.
