Important role the Herb Vendors play in Indian Traditional Healing

Excerpts from my Jungle Diaries (April 2012 onwards) Part-7

(In continuation of Part-6

“You are right, continuous travelling is harmful to health. But we are doing it since generations Earlier our ancerstors were travelling on foot but now we travel by bus and public taxis. Our many Healers friends are in remote villages far from modern communication systems. To supply herbs to them we have to travel continuously round the year. We prefer to attend weekly village markets where Healers of surrounding areas visit.” I was interacting with the Herb Vendor of North India.

He was with lots of Himalayan herbs. The Traditional Healers of Central and South India depend on these Herb Vendors for supply of Himalayan Herbs. These vendors play vital role in Indian Traditional Healing. Although they are Herb Vendors by profession but in my view they are not less than the expert Traditional Healers. They meet the Healers of different parts of India and in this process their knowledge enriches many folds. I have interacted with thousands of Herb Vendors and always learnt much from them.

Few years back I requested the Herb Vendors from Haridwar to bring the medicinal plants growing in world famous Valley of Flowers. Next year they visited to Chhattisgarh not only with the valuable medicinal plants of Valley but also with important Traditional medicinal knowledge associated with it. Without any delay I arranged meeting of small group of Traditional Healers. The vendors demonstrated the plants and Healers gained new knowledge. In exchange a representative from Healers informed about rare wild Mushroom growing in Chhattisgarh forest to the vendors. I interacted with the Herb Vendors for many days and compared the knowledge furnished by them with the knowledge present in my database on Valley of Flowers. When I searched the reference literature for many of important Formulations I found nothing. It means the workers working in the area have yet not documented it. I decided to publish it through my home page without any delay.

The Healers attending the meeting kept the plant samples safely for use on their patients. Many of them decided to try it with the local herbs with similar medicinal properties. Similarly the Herb Vendors travelled to their homeland with Medicinal Mushrooms of Chhattisgarh Forest. They experimented with it and also gave it to the Healers of their areas. Next year when they met again they shared lots of new information with each other. I was fortunate to be a part of this important interaction.

“Where is the sacred pond?” It was voice of Herb Vendor of Orissa. He was standing near famous twin ponds of Aarang city in Chhattisgarh near Rasni with other Herb Vendors. Not only the Herb Vendors but also the Traditional Healers of Orissa consider these twin ponds as sacred ponds. When they travel to Chhattisgarh on foot they stay in shade of Pipal tree and take bath in Rasni ponds. The Traditional Healers of Chhattisgarh are also aware of these ponds. They consider its water beneficial for patients suffering from skin diseases. These ponds are perennial and this is the reason the patients reach to it round the year. Many Healers collect its water and use it for preparation of medicines. For collection they travel long distance.

Highway was dividing it in two parts. One at left and other at right side. Now after formation of new state Chhattisgarh the capital city Raipur is expanding like wild fire. In place of high way six lane roads were planned and ignoring the importance of Rasni ponds the planners ordered to fill it with mud. The Herb Vendors visiting from Orissa was not aware of it. They cried a lot when they failed to locate their sacred ponds.

In India there are thousands of such sacred ponds and forest. I am trying to put in large map with its importance so that the world community can come forward to protect it. In past decade we have lost hundreds of such sacred spots. It affected the Traditional Healing a lot. The incidence of Rasni ponds made the Herb Vendors sad. Many of them decided not to visit the area again. Their decision will affect the practice of Traditional Healers depends on them.

In year 1996 I interacted with the Herb Vendors of Nepal. They were at Amarkantak for supply of herbs. I found large number of Medicinal Orchids with them. They shared a lot of information about its medicinal uses but less than the information available in my database. I presented them printouts of my work on Medicinal Orchids. Also arranged meeting with some of the Traditional Orchid Experts. We visited to nearby Achanakmar Forest for Medicinal Orchids. In Traditional Healing of Central India Vanda and Dendrobium are among most popular Medicinal Orchids. Both are added in hundreds of Formulations and most of the Formulations are considered incomplete without it. Much work has been done of Medicinal Orchids around the world but still the world community is not aware of Medicinal Orchids and millions of Formulations based on it. Very few Formulations are under trial in research labs and in process of becoming new Global products. I always encourage young researchers to conduct research on Medicinal Orchids but due to lack of reported works they hesitate to enter in this important field.

In India Medicinal Orchids are associated with Faith Healing also. In the famous Black Magic rituals different Orchids are used frequently. There is round the year demand of these Orchids in India and the users purchase it through Tantriks at fairly high prices. These Orchids are collected by the Herb Collectors at low price. I have documented the Traditional Knowledge as well as modern practices. But I have noted that due to Black Magic market the natural population of Medicinal Orchid is in danger. It is affecting the Traditional Healing. The Healers are not getting  desired species in bulk. The Healers are angry with this exploitation.

“One can use other herbs available in abundance for Black Magic. Why they are collecting and destroying Mother Nature’s Gift for earning wealth? One Medicinal Orchid in form of Herbal Formulation can save tens of lives and provide relief to patients at last stage of cancer and associated diseases. It must be stopped.” They say with much anger.

They are right in their stand. The Tantriks support their stand with many arguments. “It protects from evil spirits, provide relief from mental stress and used for over hundreds of Tantrik ceremonies. We are also using it for the common people.”

In this growing conflict I see an important role of young entrepreneurs. They must come forward to grow the most wanted Medicinal Orchids in nurseries so that both Healers and Tantriks can get the desired species without affecting the natural population. When I put this plan among the Tantriks they accepted it but with the Traditional Healers there are some restrictions. They never prefer cultivated species. They only prefer species from Mother Nature’s Experimental Fields. I feel that the young researchers can convince them in near future that Orchid raised in nursery are equally useful than wild orchids. For that the researchers have to do a lot of experimentation. The senior Healers of Bastar reacted that if they get Orchid with little less medicinal properties then they will add other ingredients in order to make the Formulation strong enough. Although not all the Healers are at present in agreement with them but I see it as a ray of hope.

In India many Orchid nurseries exist but none of them is working on Medicinal Orchids. The Tantriks as well as Healers are not aware of their existence. The Nursery owners are working for the markets in Metros where Orchids are used for decoration. They use technical terms for Orchids. For example they can supply Vanda but not Kaua Godi. In fact both are names for same species. Kaua Godi is local name of Vanda in Chhatisgarh Plains, It is not known to the Nursery owners and the Healers are not aware of word Vanda.

While interacting with the famous Orchid Grower of North-East I shared Traditional Allelopathic Knowledge through which Medicinal Orchids are enriched with desired medicinal properties before collection. The grower took keen interest in it.

“We can take patents for these Formulations.” He said.

“No, it is well documented knowledge and practiced by Traditional Healers of India. There is no need for patents. Think in positive way and work with the Traditional Healers having expertise on it and share profit with them as your business partner. It is only possible way also.” I said in hard words. He understood and assured that very soon he will start work on this aspect.

I promise that I will act as bridge between Medicinal Orchid growers and Tantriks but again the Herb Vendors will play the key role. In their long journey they meet and interact with thousands of Traditional Healers and Tantriks. They can communicate more strongly and efficiently.

“Take leaves of Mechha Kand, Jagmandal Kand, Chhuria Kand, Pahadi Telia Kand and Kath Pipal roots and dip it in sacred water of Indravati river for one night. Next morning we will visit to Tendu Trees loaded with Medicinal Orchids. At first we worship it and then take permission for collection. We will collect few orchids from one Tree not all. We will go there after taking bath in minimal cloths and please keep your mobiles aside. May be some orchids are in deep sleep. After collection we will apply the herbal solution in injured plants. As you know the orchid collection process affects both Orchid and the host plant i.e. Tendu Tree in this case. The Herbal Solution will remove the “Pain” and also help in healing the wound.” The Healers of Southern Chhattisgarh were giving instruction to me and their followers ready to collect the Medicinal Orchids for preparation of Herbal Formulations.

During my recent visit to Gwalior region I met a group of Herb Vendors from South India. We were waiting to meet the Traditional Healer having expertise in treatment of Diabetes. There was long queue of patients and others. We were standing under sun in road. I pointed to the obnoxious weed Parthenium hysterophrous growing in wasteland.

“What is this plant Are you aware of its medicinal uses?” I asked intentionally.

“No, we are not aware of its medicinal uses. In our area the authorities have declared it as Allergy weed and they uproot it time to time.” They replied.

 “Yes, you are right that it is Allergy causing plant but all parts are not harmful. The Traditional Healers of Chhattisgarh at first tried to use it in their Formulations. Now they are using it in their day today practice. Although the number of such Healers is less but through mouth publicity this new finding is spreading fastly. They know about its toxicity and like other toxic herbs they treat it before using it in their Formulations.” I disclosed.

 The Vendors were in great surprise. One of them uprooted the plant and then others started looking at it like miraculous plant.

“Don’t uproot it in this way. Millions of Trichomes present on stem may cause Allergy. These Trichomes are full of Allergens. Best way is to use hand gloves before uprooting it. In rural areas natives apply Mustard oil on hands and then uproot it. During uprooting avoid taking deep breathe as Parthenium pollens are Allergic. It may cause mental depression and permanent disfigurement of face. The authorities in your area are right but its judicial and safe use can establish it as useful plant.” I explained.

“Let’s forget the Healer and discuss on the use of this plant. Tell us everything about it and in return we will tell about uses of Medicinal Insects.” They proposed and I accepted the meaningful offer of knowledge sharing. We came out from queue and started discussion on Parthenium utilization.

 “I am describing the simple technique for removing toxicity with the help of wasteland plants present in surroundings. Our Healers use forest herbs. The forest herbs are not present here so I am informing about the methods. You can try it after getting the forest herbs.” I started explaining the method.

 In Chhattisgarh when Parthenium roots are used for skin diseases the Traditional Healers dip it in cow urine for 24 hours, after that the roots are washed thoroughly and again dipped in herbal solution. Common weeds like Sida, Celosia and Ipomoea etc. are used for preparation of solution. After 24 hours of dipping the roots are washed and dried in sun. Now the process is considered complete. The powdered roots are used in different Herbal Formulations. The Healers have yet not started using it as single herb for treatment. They are adding it as secondary as well as tertiary ingredients in promising Formulations. Through the interactions with the Traditional Healers I have collected information about over 55 such Toxicity removing Treatments. None of these methods is available in published form.   

The Herb Vendors noted every detail and thanked me. After it they started showing dried samples of Medicinal Insects. I identified most of the samples. They shared the knowledge about its uses. The information was not new for me. It was just like revision.

Recently I was invited to Maisuru for guest lecture on Parthenium. I delivered lecture on Medicinal uses of Parthenium. I described the methods of purification adopted by the Healers of Chhattisgarh and about selected Formulations in which Parthenium is used as medicine. After lecture one of the participants approached to me and said that one of the methods I was talking about is practiced by some people in his area. It generated interest in me and I requested him to arrange visit to that place on my expenses. He got ready. After two hours He approached to me again with waiting phone call.

“Sir, please talk to these people. They are practicing this knowledge. They understand your language.” He said.

After formal interaction very soon they recognized me. They were from the group of Herb Vendors I met in Gwalior in front of Traditional Healer’s home. It was nice talking with them. I was happy to know that they were practicing the shared knowledge sincerely.   

When I started Ethnobotanical surveys in year 1990 I got information about herbs and Herbal Formulations the Traditional Healers of Northern Chhattisgarh use for treatment of Hydrocele both internally as well as externally. I noted that they frequently use Ama Haldi and Parsa flowers based Formulations for external application. Both herbs are used as main ingredients whereas 17 other herbs are added in the Formulation to make it complete. From year 1990 to 2012 I interacted with thousands of Herb Vendors and never missed to ask for the special comments on Ama Haldi and Parsa Flowers based Formulations. The Herb Vendors have suggested number of herbs useful with these herbs in different combinations. Initially I was having 50 Formulations based on these herbs. Now with the help of Herb Vendors the number has gone up to +3700. Ama Haldi is common name of Curcuma amada whereas Parsa is local name of Butea monosperma.

“Parsa flowers are boon for the patients with Hydrocele and you can use it both internally as well as externally. Externally use it with Jangli Haldi whereas internally with Jimikand. You will see the fast recovery of the patients.” The Herb Vendors of Jharkhand suggested me. It was valuable knowledge indeed. The Herb Vendors of Uttarakhand add Khursani Ajwain with it in order to make the external application more promising. The Healers of Chhattisgarh are not aware of it. When I presented them this Khursani Ajwain based Formulation they tried but later due to non-availability of this herb they returned back to their original Formulations.
