A folk herbalist’s use of medicinal plants in Feni district, Bangladesh

Janifer Kalam, Md Shamim Bappy and Mohammed Rahmatullah

A folk herbalist (FH) is generally considered a folk medicinal practitioner with a small repertoire of medicinal plants or who practices folk medicine on a part-time basis. Usually FHs do not treat a large number of diseases, but occasionally they would use a known plant for a novel therapeutic purpose. The objective of this study was to document the therapeutic uses of plants by a FH in Feni district, Bangladesh. The FH was observed to use only 6 plants distributed into 6 families, which plants were used for treatment of pyorrhea, gastrointestinal problems, pain, diabetes, urinary tract infections, fever and coughs.
