  • Product Description
 

The Hindu Kush, some 800 km long mountain range forms the geopolitical boundary between Pakistan and Afghanistan. An extensive survey was carried out during summer 2009 to document the traditional knowledge about the medicinal use of plants by the dwellers of one of the remote valley in Hindu Kush Mountains. The study showed that local inhabitants not only use medicinal plants for curing various diseases but also earn a substantial part of their livelihood by selling some of them in the markets. One hundred and fourteen of the medicinal plants were recognized to use as diuretic, laxative, antiseptic, anthelmintic, carminative, expectorant, astringent and purgative agents. Thirty species of them are also collected for trade purposes. According to the interviewed population, the availability of medicinal plants is decreasing day by day due to increasing human population, extensive grazing, increase in market demand and unwise collection. Therefore, study recommended that governmental and non-governmental organizations should play their possible role to aware the local people about threats to the plants and their sustainable future.
