Herbal Practitioner, Master-Category Surgeon, Member of the Association of Traditional Practitioners of the Republic of Tajikistan
Herbal therapy is treatment with medicinal herbs. Medicinal herbs and chemically synthesised medicines have one major difference – that is, medicinal plants can be used for an extended period of time without causing any side effects. However, before turning to medicinal herbs, one should find out which plants are good for humans, and learn about plants’ dosage and on-treatment periods. Herbal practitioners should also know about exact seasons to collect herbs; and be proficient in drying and storing medicinal plants.
Badakhshan has more than 80 varieties of medicinal herbs that are approved and recommended by modern medicine. The lecture will provide short descriptions of plants, their range of application, chemical compositions, medicinal properties, collection seasons, forms of administration (tincture, tea, or dried product), and side effects.
