Description
 
In the long struggle to understand and achieve mastery over the powerful forces of nature man has always turned to plants for help-for food, shelter, clothing, weapons, and of course for healing.  Plants, people and medicine design the fascinating story of mankind's relationship to plants from prehistoric times to the present.  No wonder then that from the most primitive societies to the most advanced, plants have been investigated and empowered with multipurpose uses.  The present form of herbal medicine is the outcome of several years of hard work and trials carried forward by various indigenous communities.  In the remote region, such as trans-Himalayan the indigenous community of amchis is credited to develop the Tibetan Medical System (TMS) and over the years of experiments made them diligent students of the local flora and medicinal plants.  This book is a discussion and compendium of the topic.
