ABSTRACT:
Jaundice is one of the very common diseases affecting general people of Assam. Traditionally used medicinal plants are found to be very much effective for the treatment of various types of diseases including Jaundice. The common people of Assam are mostly dependent on herbal medicines for the management of jaundice. The main objective of the present study was to investigate the medicinal plants used for the management of jaundice. A field study focused on the uses of herbal plants by the jaundice patients was carried out among the peoples of few lower Assam districts of North Eastern region of India. This article describes various ethnomedicinal plant species used to cure jaundice by the people of Assam. Information on 30 plant species, plant parts used, local name and mode of utilization of the plant parts which are traditionally used against jaundice was recorded. Further investigations are required to explore the biological activity of different active ingredients of traditionally used medicinal plants.
