Abstract(RBIP-143)

The ethnic and rural people of India have preserved a large bulk of traditional knowledge of medicinal uses of plants growing around them. This knowledge is handed down to generations through word of mouth and is extensively used for the treatment of common diseases and conditions. Rural women of India, commonly experience gynecological problems due to unhygienic living conditions, malnutrition and hard physical work, often even during pregnancy. In every village, some women, locally known as ‘Daiya’, specialize in phytotherapy of these diseases and conditions using commonly available plants .However the number of these Lady-healers are fast decreasing as younger generation is showing a little interest in learning this valuable science of healing. Therefore, proper documentation of this traditional knowledge is immediately called for. Present study, dealing with ethnobotanical uses of the plant in the treatment of gynaecological disorders like abortion, labour pain, post-partal haemorrhage, post partal body-aches and fever, amenorrhoea and dismenorrhoea etc. is a part of an extensive study conducted in five Tehsils of Amritsar, Punjab viz. Jandiala, Mehta, Tarn-Taran, Chabhal and Ajnala.

Keywords: Achyranthes aspera ,labour pain,Abortion,Amenorrhoea.
