Dhanvantari Vaatika - A Pharmaceutical Garden of Ayurvedic Plants
The importance of Ayurveda is well-known. From infancy to old age in one form or another we have been using these Ayurvedic herbs for centuries. But today our traditional domestic medical practices are now becoming endangered due to lack of knowledge of the medicinal properties of plants. For past three - four decades plantations are done keeping in view their beauty, shade and wood therefore a number of medicinal vegetation have disappeared and in their place trees of foreign origin having an adverse impact on our health are in abundance.
As the vegetation surrounding us affects our health therefore we should refrain from planting trees & plants having dubious drug effects in the vicinity of residential premises and trees & plants having desired medicinal properties should be planted more . Accordingly we need to adopt natural resources which are commonly available and are safe.
