Abstract

ETHNOMEDICINAL PLANTS USED FOR CURING DYSENTERY AND DIARRHOEA BY KORAKU TRIBES OF BALRAMPUR DISTRICT OF CHHATTISGARH

Ignace Kindo* and S. John Britto

ABSTRACT

The Koraku Tribes of Balrampur district of Chhattisgarh mostly live in the forest and depend on the vegetation around them for the prevention as well as the treatment of diseases and ailments. Information on ethnomedicinal uses of plants, their doses and mode of administration have been collected from the local traditional medicine practitioners (Vaithiyar) as well as experienced men and women. The paper deals with 21 ethno medicinal plants belonging to 16 families, of which 11species for dysentery and 10 species for diarrhoea used for the ailments. The most commonly used parts are the leaves 32% and barks 27%, followed by the fruits 14% while others are in less use. Of these 62% are tree, 29% herbaceous and 9% shrub. These ethno medicinal data may provide a base to new source of herbal drugs. However the overexploitation of these medicinal plants may result in depletion and eventually complete disappearance of species in natural habitat. Therefore attention should be made for proper utilization and conservation of these medicinal plants.

Keywords: Ethno medicinal, Dysentery,Diarrhoea, Koraku Tribals, Balrampur.
