Abstract:

The study aims to understand the methods employed by ancient physicians of Ayurveda to discover the medicinal properties of plants and to formally incorporate them into the Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia. A little more than 1/10th of nearly 9000 plants used for medicinal purposes in India has been used in Ayurveda suggesting the existence of rigorous criteria and methodology for acceptance of medicinal plants.
