Quick Overview

IK Dictionary of Synonyms Indian Medicinal Plants With an Appraisa: 2016 Edition

All the medicinal Plants incorporated in “Dictionary of Synonyms: Indian Medicinal Plants” have been studied for their medicinal properties and qualify for further research in modern labs. This work should not be confused with an exhaustive compilation on agro-forestry nor with a detailed document on botany. The purpose is to provide leads to scholars who are well-versed in folk and indigenous nomenclature, but are not able to reach the latest scientific literature, which is being organized by Latin or English names. This work will also serve as a guide to modern scientists who would like to correlate scientific nomenclature with the indigenous one, to understand and make the best use of ground realities for herbal drug development. In the text, Indian common and folk names have been spelled according to their actual pronunciation. ********** This reference work, I think, would be useful to all scientists in the field of medicinal plants as well as phytomedicine, to those interested in using Ayurvedic herbs with more confidence in their practice and to physicians and clinicians who are interested in the alternative and adjunctive therapies (excerpt from Foreword). — Dr. Neeraj Tandon, Head, Medicinal Plant Unit, Indian Council of Medical Research Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India. The Dictionary is the first reader-friendly, one volume source of properly identified botanical and common English synonyms of Sanskrit, Arabic, Persian, Tamil and folk nomenclature. This will facilitate the globalization process of Indian medicine and lead us to the vast research material of botanical medicine. — V.K. Agarwal. Ph.D. (Clinical Pharmacology) The Dictionary reveals the hidden common bonds in Ayurvedic, Unani and Siddha medicines, and removes the stigma of Hindu or Islamic (the epithets were used by even Col. R.N. Chopra) or a geographically divided medicinal system. It will help us in reorganizing our resources for a better coordinated effort — V.C. Burman Chairman Emiratus, Dabur India The Dictionary will erase the dividing lines of various Indian classical systems and bring therapeutically validated herbs under one umbrella. One Indian herbal medicine will ultimately emerge. This process has already been initiated by a number of pharmaceutical companies in India, even by those who remained confined to classical formulations for decades. — Dr. S.K. Mitra, M.D., Former Executive Director, R&D, Himalaya Drug Company Asiatic Society's markings have now become obscure and obsolete. It is a welcome change that Roman transcription of Sanskrit names is based on the first initiative of Rashtriya Ayurveda Vidyapeeth (National Academy of Ayurveda). — Dr. V.V. Prasad, M.D (Ayur.), Ph.D., Director, Rashtriya Ayur Vidyapeeth For the first time, we got correct Roman transcription of Unani names. In almost all reference works, Unani names in English have been misspelt. — Prof. (Hakeem) Anwar Ahmad, Former Head, Unani Medicine, University of Delhi Herbal drug development critically depends upon the proper botanical identity of Ayurvedic, Unani and Siddha classical herbs. The Dictionary has utilized all possible resources to achieve this. — Dr. Arun Gupta, M.D.(Pharmacology) The critical appraisal of Indian systems of medicines is bold, forthright and unbiased to a great extent, at least succeeded in initiating a discussion on many a controversial issue which needed a hard look. — Dr. Prem Kishore, Former Director, Central Council for Research in Ayurveda & Siddha.
