A Novel Scientific Initiative Steps Towards Uniting Disease and Nature

P. Mahadik, C. Chatterjee, J. Sen


The most simple and dominant technique from pre-notable time to recover wounds, cure ailment and calm enduring; is treatment with the support of plants concentrate. Rigidity to hostile to microbial operators has led to treatment disappointment and the movement of therapeutic consideration from conventional to natural pharmaceutical. The greater part of the home-grown solutions being used to get approval of their emphasized effects and possibly the improvement of new antimicrobial medications from them. All features of plant from root to tip can probably be used as a part of the production of medications against numerous ailments.

Keywords: Apis melifera, Isatis microcarpa, lycopene, Momordica balsamina, natural products
