Abstract

In 2007 the majority of the world’s population became urban. Adaptation to new environments is a multifaceted process and one poorly understood as it relates to Traditional Medicine (TM) access, beliefs, and practices. Studies on the effects of migration on TM suggest that urban residents often continue to use TM regardless of poverty level and access to modern healthcare services2,7. In this interdisciplinary project, PIs from anthropology, biology, and ethnobotany investigate how urban gardening contributes to wellbeing within selected low-income, refugee, and immigrant communities in Chicago and to the health of the wider environment. Interviews and focus groups among Bhutanese and Burmese refugees, LatinX and African Americans in 10 gardens throughout the city reveal that gardens are used to work through traumas of displacement, to pass on traditional knowledge and to transform neighborhoods ravaged by toxic dumping, redlining, out-migration, and school closures. They defy representations of their neighborhoods as war zones, food deserts, and sites of despair. The work highlights the interconnected social, emotional, and ecological aspects of gardens, and the reliance on the production and use of traditional herbal remedies and food plants to prevent and treat chronic diseases prevalent in these communities (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure). Data suggests the continued reliance on plant-based remedies in urban cities among disadvantaged populations, yet the lack of disclosure to their primary care physician. Plants most mentioned will be highlighted and will include a review of the literature on their safety and efficacy.

Abstract

Relevance: Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a set of heterogeneous neurodevelopmental conditions characterized by early-onset difficulties in social communication and unusually restricted repetitive behavior and interests. The issue of ASD in children is very urgent and there is a lack of methods of treating them by means of alternative medicine, especially acupuncture. Objective: Our objective was to develop speaking skills because all the patients were above 6 years old and they had difficulties in social communication.. Methods: Scalp-acupuncture; moxibustion along with psychotherapy and art-therapy at child-care centers Case reports: describing 4 cases of ASD in 6 year-old boys who were absolutely unsocial or aggressive, their speaking skills, memory, mental alertness and motivation were very poor. Conclusion: After the treatment according to their pedagogs’ observations their memory, mental alertness and motivation increased, they speaking skills improved that allows to presume that acupuncture has had a positive effect on the children’s speaking, behavioral and social skills. Two of them have been attending secondary school for a year now, one of them is going to the kindergarten and the other is planning to attend secondary school.

Abstract

Recently, the so called B. Pharm. Curricula development initiatives in developing countries is focused on the compatibility of B. Pharm programs in those countries with curricula of Pharm D. and M. Pharm programs in USA and Europe respectively. The fundamental reason for this initiative is the expansion of courses in Patient and Community- oriented Pharmacy Education. Such development is usually supported by external experts with little to no knowledge about the nature and needs of the region. This paper discusses the current curricula for the B. Pharm. Degree in different Universities from developing countries. This Curricula is reflected by the Study-Plan of the different Colleges of Pharmacy in the region. The Study-Plan is divided into Pharmaceutics; Pharmaceutical Chemistry; Pharmacology; Pharmacognosy; Patient and Community-oriented Courses; Training; Biomedical and University Requirements. Percentage analysis of credit hours allotted to each division are performed. In addition, a comparative percentage evaluations of Pharmaceutical Sciences courses, with emphasis on Pharmacognosy, in relation to Patient and Community-oriented courses are discussed. Finally the impact of the new curricula development initiatives on Pharmacognosy Education and its effect on the future of Herbalism is discussed. Recommendations given on how to overcome this effect, considering the increasing importance of Herbalism in recent days.

Abstract

Coordination of temporal and spatial regulation of fundamental processes of all organisms, ranging from gene expression, protein activity, biosynthesis of metabolites and stage transit (e.g. from vegetative into reproductive phase) is crucial for their adaptation and even survival to environmental changes/stress. Circadian clock (a kind of biological clocks) which controlled endogenous rhythms of organisms with a period ~ 24 hr occurred more than 3.5 billion years during evolution. Certain clock genes (e.g. PERs and Crys ) and signaling molecule or entraining agent (e.g. melatonin) are under circadian control and have shown to be involved in the regulation of some clock-related diseases (e.g. cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and depression). Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda Medicine are ancient systems of medicine considering the importance of time to treat diseases. Potential extracts of medicinal plants (Camellia sinensis K., Curcuma longa L. and Hypericum perforatum L.) have shown evidence-based therapeutic effects against three aforementioned clock-related diseases, respectively. Following modern chronopharmacological aspects (the right time, the right dosage and the right targets), a time window for optimal phytotherapy to alleviate clock-related diseases would be expected in the future.

Hemp is taking the world by storm…with a dizzying variety of products and claims. What’s true? What’s hype? This presentation will provide history and sound scientific data to describe the therapeutic qualities of Cannabis components, including Full Spectrum Hemp, Flower sourced extracts, CBD, THC and more, as well as identifying CB 1 and CB 2 receptor sites and both endogenous and exogenous endocannabinoids. We will include a discussion of the latest FDA regulatory environment, and how to negotiate the wide variety of options, such as where the plant is grown, carrier oils, and dosage suggestions. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a network of receptors and signaling molecules found throughout the entire body. This critical physiological system can easily be influenced by the phytocannabinoids naturally found in certain foods- especially industrial hemp.

Abstract

Present study was investigated for screening of hepatoprotective activity of Ocimum gratissimum plant. Plant parts were subjected to preliminary phytochemical investigations followed by pharmacological screening of selected fraction to assess their effectiveness for the control of hepatotoxicity in albino wistar rats. Paracetamol (2 gm/kg) was administered to induced liver toxicity. Silymarin was used as a standard for hepatoprotective activity. Biochemical parameters i.e. SGPT, SGOT, ALP and total bilirubin were analyzed and histopathological observations were conducted. Results of biochemical analysis and histopathological studies indicate that ethyl acetate fraction of Ocimum gratissimum significantly brought down the elevated level of SGPT, SGOT, ALP and bilirubin and were considerably comparable with that of silymarin. From the results, it can be concluded that ethyl acetate fraction of Ocimum gratissimum shown prominent hepatoprotective activity and can be formulated in suitable dosage form for control and cure chronic ailment liver disorder.

Clinical Herbalism

Abstract

Since dietary supplements may be acquired without a prescription, patients can readily obtain dietary supplements over-the-counter for their personal use. Health care providers must rely on patients to disclose information regarding their herbal use. Unfortunately, studies suggest that patients do not inform their health care providers about their use of unconventional medicines. Health care providers need to consciously obtain information pertaining to the use of dietary supplements from patients. Regardless of personal beliefs surrounding the efficacy of herbal products, health care providers are obligated to collect herb use data in order to insure patient safety. We must familarize ourselves with these products through available resources. Inquiries should be conducted in an open and nonjudgmental manner. When a patient wants to use a dietary supplement, the following points should be addressed: inadequate regulations for quality, safety, or efficacy, the differences in preparations from different manufacturers, and reporting of adverse events. Safety should be the primary issue when patients are using dietary supplements. How to counsel a patient regarding the use of a dietary supplement and how to determine a reputable dietary supplement company will be discussed.

Abstract

Vajeekaran an ancient Andrology deals with fertility and eugenics. Shukra dhatu an important aspect in male fertility is grouped under seven dathus. Ayurveda classics described formation, features, and functions of normal shukra/retas. Among etiopathogenesis of shukra dusthi eight types the physio- chemical features for the diagnosing cause of infertility is described. Male Infertility refers to the biological inability of a male to contribute in conception and this factor contributes 25% to 50% of infertile couples. Despite proper diagnostic workup and as our knowledge of the events involving in the normal conception is still limited, we fail to determine the 100% definite causes of infertility in nearly half of these cases. It is also difficult to determine a threshold to discriminate fertile men have normal parameters. Likewise, it is impossible to make a final diagnosis of infertility based on the conventional approaches. Abnormalities are likely to be present but are not detected by conventional approaches. Semen analysis as per Ayurveda could be a new approach that can help to detect the abnormal semen from the normal one. The standardized tools to examine eight-fold abnormalities of semen will help to plan appropriate pharmacotherapy.

Abstract

Bovine mastitis is an inflammatory retort of memory gland caused by micro-organisms. Mastitis is the costliest disease of dairy industry worldwide and is associated with economic loss of nearly $ 35 billion annually. The aim of present study were, determination of extent of subclinical mastitis in three breeds of cattle, Kankrej, Gir, and Crossbred of Gujarat State, India and evaluating the ethanolic fraction of plant Euphorbia hirta as an alternative of antibiotic therapy. Milk samples collected from indigenous and crossbred cattle were subjected for somatic cell count and for bacterial isolation. Isolated bacteria were identified on the basis of their morphological characteristics as well as PCR based genotypic method. Animal study was carried out in mammary glands of female “Wister albino” rats and C-Reactive Protein from the blood samples was estimated for each group including healthy and infected rats by CRP-Turbilatex Kit. Results of the present investigation indicate that prevalence of subclinical mastitis in crossbred cattle was higher compared to local breed of cattle. Causative agents identified using 16S rDNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based molecular method were Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Bacillus megaterium. Animal study indicates that after treatment with ethanolic fraction of E. hirta, CRP level and visible signs (swelling, heat, redness) of infection were decreased. Significant reduction in CRP level was observed between days 12th to 16th post treatment and recovery was noticed in infected rats. In vivo results support the use of plant extract from E. hirta as an alternative to antibiotics therapy against bovine subclinical mastitis.

Traditional Medicine

Abstract

I am writing this brief paper to put together a template of simple things, taken from a variety of sources showing evidence that intersect with producing tissue regeneration in the body in and of themselves. The items below (listed in no order of importance) give some introductory information on what has been shown in research to date. These are discussed as introductory points and it should be remembered that clinical data to support combining these things has yet to be established. Rather, we will surmise that combining these modalities based on their individual merits, and low risk factors, gives some credence to combine them for further consideration, study, and investigation. You will find the reference materials used in discussing these various preconditioning topics listed below and for ease of reading, they are presented as a list of references. Fasting/Mimicking Diet- Here the premise is removal of impaired tissue and reactivation of healthy tissue, possibly reversing organ dysfunction. It was found that four-day fasting changed the insulin producing B cells, restoring insulin secretion and glucose homeostasis in both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes in murine models. It has also been found that prolonged fasting can regulate hematopoietic stem cell protecting, self-renewal, and regeneration capabilities. While we know that mice and humans are not the same thing, the point illustrates the potential importance of this activity. While we are speaking about two different effects here; fasting causing an autocrine effect and cellular therapies used in conjunction with fasting still produce a paracrine effect. The take away is that we know that we are affecting the hormone activity in the body in two different ways. Glutathione- Glutathione is extremely important in the redox regulator of oxidative stresses and stem cell conditions. Glutathione levels help in heterogeneous repopulation of stem cells and is essential in maintaining stem cell functions. O2 Regulation of Stem Cells- Hypoxia inducible factor 1α (HIF-1α) modulation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling has a direct role with O2 availability and stem cell regulation. HIF-1α is expressed in hypoxic regions, such as trauma zones, in order for a cascade of signals to be released that allow for recruiting stem and progenitor cells. There are some stem cells that work with this hypoxic effect and O2 gradients are known to regulate many cell populations. Vitamin D and Stem Cells- Vitamin D insufficiency is currently in epidemic proportions worldwide. In a recent study, vitamin D was studied in zebrafish to investigate hematopoietic stem cell production. In the zebrafish, vitamin D3 acted directly on the hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells to increase proliferation, independently of calcium regulation. In ex vivo investigation on human hematopoietic stem/progenitor cell, vitamin D3 also enhanced hematopoietic stem cell colonies. Amino Acids- It has long been known that amino acids are the building blocks of the body. We are now beginning to understand why. Embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells (ESCs & iPSCs) hold great promise in the field of regenerative medicine specifically because of their ability to differentiate. We now understand that there is an important link between nutrient availability and cellular metabolism, maintenance, and differentiation. Therefore, it makes sense to provide a nutrient rich environment to promote and support cellular metabolism and differentiation. When we combine all of these pieces of information it becomes clear that preconditioning may help “fertilize the ground” in order to obtain the richest harvest! Consider then the idea of Neurogenesis, the formation of new neurons in the brain, (which until recently was not believed possible.) Stem cells can create stem cells (clonogenic entity) or differentiate into other cell types (asymmetric division); differentiation into progenitor cells is an example of this. Progenitor cells can themselves differentiate into specific types of neurons. Neural stem cells can also differentiate into glial progenitor cells, which can give rise to glial cells such as astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and microglia. When you combine these pieces of information preconditioning, especially in our toxic environment becomes foundational rather than ancillary. Whether we are implementing any additional “stem cell therapies” or not, preconditioning should be the foundation of treatment rather than an adjunct to treatment.

Abstract

The drying drug discovery pipeline has created serious concerns and is likely to impact public health largely. When it comes to drug discovery from traditional medicine history has always shown the path and have provided vital information leads in shaping the future. Ethnic cultures have revealed the secret of synergism thus bringing out a new concept of polyherbal medication than looking for totally new entities. The literature in ethnomedicine usually documents the following information are the Latin binomial of the plant used, common names of the plants used, plant part and geographical area. Data that are required in an ethnobotanical writing for assessment of the value of the plant medicine are method of preparation of the medicine, dosing, source of information, route of administration and the symptomatology of the disease. If ethnobotanical information states that a plant is used to allay thirst and since thirst is one of the many symptoms of diabetes, follow-up questions should be asked to see if the user urinates frequently, is susceptible to fungal infections or has any other characteristic symptoms of diabetes. Users of traditional medicines often perceive a relationship between the shape, color and odor of plant materials and features of their diseases. Some examples might be that a plant which exudes a red sap or resin, or plants that are red in color, may be useful for blood related disorders. However in development of ethnobotany, trained personnel are required of this subject in the pharmacy curriculum.*

Abstract

Back ground: Candida albicans is a common human yeast that infect several epithelial tissues including vagina. The increase of drug-resisting C. albicans encouraged the researchers to find alternative treatment. Honey medical signatures such as bactericidal, antifungal and anti-candida made it a possible candidate for disease treatment. In addition, rose essential oil possesses a wide range of biochemical activities in folkloric medicine including anti-microbial activities. Aim of work: The present research utilizes honey alone or in conjunction with Taifi rose oil as anti-candida agent to treat vaginal candidiasis. Three local monoforal honeys from different flower sources and/or geographic origins were tested with four concentrations (30, 50, 80 and 95%), while two concentrations of the Taifi rose oil (1 and 2%). Materials and Methods: anti-candida activity of honey alone or in conjunction with Taifi rose oil was determined as well as phenolic and flavonoids contents were determined. Also, GC-MS analysis of volatile oils and alkaloids were evaluated. Results: The results of this study indicated that acidity is within the allowed range for commercialization and long-lasting storage. All honeys tested inhibited completely the Candida albicans growth at concentrations 80% and 95% either incubation after 48 or 72 h. Also, only Markh and Manuka honeys were completely inhibited Candida albicans growth at 50% concentration. Also, Candida albicans growth inhibited completely at 2% Taifi rose oil after the incubation periods of 48 and 72 h. The phenolic compounds and flavonoids were analysed by mass spectrometry analysis which revealed the Markh honey showed the presence of gallic acid and quercetin that proved to have antifungal activity. Conclusion: It could be concluded that mixed Markh honey and Taifi rose oil treatment was capable to inhibit Candida albicans growth completely. Further research is required to determine the anti-candida activity of the mixture of Markh honey and Taifi rose oil in the human body as a new therapeutic drug to treat vaginal candidiasis.

Abstract

Herbal medicinal products (HMP) have gained increasing popularity in the last decade. Because herbs are plants, they are generally perceived as “natural” and therefore safe. On the other hand, a number of side effects to herbs have been reviewed due to biologically active constituents from herbs, contaminants, herb-drug interactions. The majority of the data from toxicity studies of HMP are from traditional toxicity tests, relied on animal models treated at maximum tolerated dose levels including oral, dermal and ocular toxicity; immunotoxicity; genotoxicity; reproductive & developmental toxicity; carcinogenicity etc. These toxicity tests are low-throughput, costly, time consuming and sometimes inconsistently predictive of human pathophysiology. The present article deals with the key challenges facing toxicologists in the pharmaceutical industry and the emerging promising additions from the toxicologist’s toolbox, shaping toxicity testing today.

Abstract

Cirrhosis of liver is a disease which involves irreversible scarring of the liver tissue which ultimately leads to failure of the liver to perform its normal functions. Pathological features include extensive fibrosis associated with the formation of regenerative nodules. Cirrhosis of liver is a health problem, increasing continuously from several decades where liver transplantation is the only hope in advance cases. However, survival rate after transplantation is poor. In this case series, we have given Unani treatment for eight months in 15 cases of cirrhosis of liver of varied aetiologies. Diagnosis of cirrhosis is made through Ultrasonography and Fibroscan. Results were evaluated with findings of Ultrasonography, Fibroscan, Liver function test Hemogram and symptoms of the patients. Significant improvement was noted in fibroscan, LFT, USG, Hemogram and symptoms of the patients’ Conventional treatment only help to control the complication of disease but could not cure the disease. Based on results of this case series, a clinical trial should be carried out on large number of patients for further evaluation and substantiating efficacy.

Abstract

Human immune-deficiency virus (HIV) infection is known to be associated with cellular crisis and disruption of normal metabolic activities of the infected individual. These occur through a complex activities and multi-faceted channels such as loss of integrity and functions by certain cell types, apoptosis, depletion of micronutrients and impairment of trace elements metabolism. Consequently, the standard management procedure for HIV infection recognizes nutrition and a combination of highly active anti-retroviral drug therapy. The present study aims at developing a product to be called Manna and evaluating its potential as a toolfor intervention in the nutritional requirements in the cycle of HIV disease progression. Plant leaves and seeds were blended with cereals, honey, milk and trace elements, allowed to ferment at 40C for 1 hour before baking in the oven. The product obtained (the Manna) was used as an adjunct in the management of 3 bedridden 43-47 years old AIDS male patients with mean CD4+ cells count of <120 cells/ml. After 60 days, the three men were up and walking about again, having regained strength and added some body weight including increases in CD4+ cells count to a mean value of >200 cells/ml. These findings suggest that nutritional deficiency impaired the response of these AIDS cases to the three combination highly active anti-retroviral drug therapy (HAART) they were exposed to in the hospital (Lamivudine, Zidovudine and Nevirapine). The mechanism of action of Manna is not yet fully understood but it is likely to have reduced oxidative stress, increased cellular resistance to induced apoptosis and improved metabolic functions of cells. A reduction in the rate of cells death may affect the multiplication of the HIV in the host. There is need for further studies on Manna and its mechanism of actions with a view to determine its potential as an intervention tool in viral infections.

Abstract

This research surveys and documents information on medicinal plants and their botanical preparations used in the treatment of children’s ailments in South-eastern Nigeria. Children under the age of 5 in developing countries suffer from diseases with high morbidity and mortality rate yearly due to inaccessible and unaffordable health care. Structured questionnaires were administered to the herbal sellers, traditional medicine practitioners, nursing mothers and adult dwellers to collect data on the names of plants used to treat the conditions, methods of preparation, duration of treatment, adverse effects and the methods of administration of the plant materials. A total of 135 plants belonging to 55 families were identified for the management of children’s health in the area. Common paediatric ailments which were said to be treated with herbal remedies by the respondents included malaria, pneumonia, stomach ache, diarrhoea, dysentery, measles, chicken pox/small pox, convulsion, jaundice, pile, ringworm, scabies, eczema, stubborn cough, scurvy, catarrh, wounds, boils, insect bites, food poison, cholera, and umbilical cord complications. Percentages of respondent were; herbal sellers were (48.2%) traditional medical practitioners (21.6%), nursing mothers (11.1%) and others (19.1%). The most occurring plant families were Euphorbiaceae, Fabaceae and Apocynaceae with 8 species of plants each, followed by Annonaceae and Asteriaceae with 7 and 6 species respectively. The recipes were made from the combination of different parts of two or more plants species, and others were made from single plant parts. Methods of extraction were mostly decoction, raw squeezing out of the juice and infusion, while oral administration was the main route of administration.

Abstract

Fasciola is a major parasite of sheep around Lake Hashenge that is claimed to cause serious destruction of liver and liver condemnation (more than 80%) which lead to loss of profit/market despite its potential nutritional and price value. Liver infected with fasciola is hard and fibrotic and is not fit for human consumption regardless of its zoonotic potential. Triclabendazole is the drug of choice for treating fasciolosis but triclabendazole have no effect in the healing or regeneration capacity of the already damaged liver by the parasite unless augmented with other natural herbal preparations which make the damaged liver heal faster. Therefore, this project was designed to study the augmentation responses of herbal extract to triclabendazole therapy which was expected to facilitate the regeneration and healing process of the liver of sheep. A total of 12 naturally fasciola infested sheep diagnosed with coprological examination were used in this study. The 12 naturally fasciola infested sheep were grouped into three groups (G1=Experimental, treated with both triclabendazole and the herbal extract bolus; G2=Experimental, treated only with triclabendazole; and G3=Control, not treated with either of the treatments) each containing 4(four) sheep. Herbal bolus were prepared at the College of Veterinary Medicine, Mekelle University and used for augmentation. Three months after the treatment sheep in all the three groups were coprological examined. The effect of augmentation was evaluated with liver function tests, gross pathology and histopathology. All the data were analyzed using STATA version-11.0 statistical software and P-value of 0.05 was considered a statistically significant difference for all analysis. Gross findings showed live fasciola parasite and severe liver damage; irregular shaped and rough fibrotic liver; and liver with slight fibrosis and distended gall bladder in G3, G2 and G1, respectively. Liver function test results were higher in the control group (G3) compared to G1 and G2 (P<0.05). Microscopic findings of the tissue samples revealed liver with very sever necrotized area with diffused extensive fibrosis (cirrhosis) around the section of parasite in the middle; liver with moderate necrotized area with diffused extensive fibrosis (cirrhosis); and liver with fibrosis (cirrhosis) being degraded and regeneration of hepatocytes around it in G3, G2 and G1, respectively. Augmentation of triclabendazole with herbal extract improves the healing and regeneration capacity of fasciola infested liver and thus it should be encouraged.

Abstract

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the major causes of death globally. Maximum people die annually from cardiovascular disease than from any other factors. The treatment of CVD by using modern medicines is very expensive. The present article mainly tried to evaluate and screen out the potential ethnomedicinal plants used by the local people of Bangladesh for the management of CVD. Information on the medicinal uses of plants was collected using semi-structure interviews with key informants during the year of 2017 and 2018. A total of 43 medicinal plant species was recorded for the management of CVD used by the local people of Bangladesh. The most frequently cited ethnomedicinal plant species for the management of CVD were Terminalia arjuna (Arjun) Terminalia bellirica (Bastard myrobalan), Terminalia chebula (black myrobalan), Allium sativum (Garlic), Tamarindus indica (Tamarind) and Alternanthera sessilis (Sessile joyweed) R. Br. Ex Roem. Among the ailments categories high informant consensus factor (Fic) was found in case of antioxidant, heartache, high blood pressure and blood purifier. Comparing with previous research Hylocereus undatus, Alternanthera panicoide and Lactuca sativa were seem to be newly reported medicinal plant for the management of CVD in Bangladesh. Among the potential ethnomedicinal plants Arjun and Garlic have been subjected to anticoagulant study. In the preliminary results both species showed anticoagulant activities in some extend on the clotted blood of human. The present results seem to validate the local use of ethnomedicinal plants of Bangladesh for the management of CVD.

Public Health

Abstract

The strategy of price liberalisation and privatisation had been implemented in Sudan over the last decade, and has had a positive result on government deficit. The investment law approved recently has good statements and rules on the above strategy in particular to pharmacy regulations. Under the pressure of the new privatisation policy, the government introduced radical changes in the pharmacy regulations. To improve the effectiveness of the public pharmacy, resources should be switched towards areas of need, reducing inequalities and promoting better health conditions. Medicines are financed either through cost sharing or full private. The role of the private services is significant. A review of reform of financing medicines in Sudan is given in this study. Also, it highlights the current drug supply system in the public sector, which is currently responsibility of the Central Medical Supplies Public Corporation (CMS). In Sudan, the researchers did not identify any rigorous evaluations or quantitative studies about the impact of drug regulations on the quality of medicines and how to protect public health against counterfeit or low quality medicines, although it is practically possible. However, the regulations must be continually evaluated to ensure the public health is protected against by marketing high quality medicines rather than commercial interests, and the drug companies are held accountable for their conduct.

Abstract

Talipariti elatum (Sw.) Malvaceae, also known as Blue Mahoe or Mountain Mahoe, commonly named as Majagua azul or Majagua, with red or crimson flowers, is a medicinal tree traditionally used against cough, asthma, catarrh, and expectorant. Its flowers contain a lot different chemical compounds, mainly flavonoids. T. elatum is native to the islands of Cuba, Jamaica, US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Martinica. In wetter areas it will grow in a wide range of elevations, up to 1200 meters (3900 Ft.) and is often used in reforestation. It is the national tree of Jamaica. The tree is quite attractive with its straight trunk, broad green leaves and hibiscus-like flowers. The attractive flower changes color as it matures, going from bright yellow to orange-red and finally to crimson. From red petals of the flowers a flavonol glucoside was isolated and characterized by NMR 1H spectroscopy. Structure analysis of that chemical component revealed that It have the identical glucoside moiety attached to a flavonol skeleton like gossypitrin (gossypetin-7-O-ß-glucoside) but in different position for which the structure of gossypetin-3’-O-glucoside was deduced using the H and OH correlations.

Abstract

Over the years there has been some progress in the development of drugs for treatment of neurological disorders, however, most of the drugs are expensive and beyond the reach of people. African populations are mostly rural; people are extremely poor and have limited access to hospitals and professional healthcare facilities. It is necessary to develop indigenous knowledge and local methods of disease treatments. Several plants have reputed use in traditional/ethno-medicine. We have carried out an ethno-medical survey to identify indigenous knowledge of perception and treatment of some age-related disorders like hypertension, senile dementia and stroke among the Hausa and Fulani tribes of Northern Nigeria. We present a science-based information about local treatment and plant remedies for the treatment of the diseases. The perception of age related disorders in local traditions also are discussed with the view of understanding the basis of selecting some of remedies. Existing scientific knowledge that supports the use of some plants will be discussed.

Abstract

acupuncture has been used to treat headaches for thousands of years. The greatest advantage of acupuncture over western medicine is that it is safe . Unlike synthetic drugs, acupuncture has virtually no side effects, and the procedures for treating headaches are much less invasive. Migraine headaches are usually one-sided, pulsating or throbbing, and moderate or severe in intensity. They can be worsened with activity and may be associated with nausea and/or vomiting, as well as sensitivity to light or noise. Some patients also experience auras, a neurological symptom that develops gradually over 5-20 minutes. The patient may see brief flashes or waves of light, or changes in their vision. Other common features of auras include vertigo, imbalance, confusion and numbness.Acupuncture had been used to treat 50 patient suffering from migraine ,topiramat (topamax) given to prevent the attacks, duration of treatment is 10 weeks , the patients were fallowed up for one year .Topiramat is called an anticonvulsant.Topiramat is also used to prevent migraine headaches in adults and teenagers who are at least 12 years old. This medicine will only prevent migraine headaches or reduce the number of attacks. It will not treat a headache that has already begun.
