Therapeutic uses of medicinal plants in Naogaon district, Bangladesh

Md. Salahuddin Sarder, Tarana Afrooz, Shahanoor Rohani, Moutushi Khan Tuti and Mohammed Rahmatullah

Folk medicinal practitioners (FMPs) in Bangladesh are mostly plant-based medical practitioners who practice on their own without recourse to any formal medical education. The objective of this study was to document the therapeutic uses of plants by three FMPs in Naogaon district, Bangladesh. The FMPs were observed to use 14 plants distributed into 13 families. The major thing about the phytotherapeutic uses of the plants by the three FMPs was the mostly uncommon use of the plants. As such, the information provided by them adds significantly to the folk medicinal literature of Bangladesh and can aid the scientist to develop new lines of pharmacological research on the plants.
