ABSTRACT

Background: Home remedies can be considered as ‘quick-fixes’ to diseases and which are administered to a patient for simple illnesses, which does not necessitate visits to a physician. It is plausible that traditional medicines started initially with home remedies, where a person or family members by sheer chance happened to ‘discover’ a remedy. Home remedies are quite common throughout the world and can yield valuable data on disease treatment if adequately documented. Methods: The objective of the present study was to document the home remedies used by people of Kadipur village in Chuadanga district, Bangladesh. Surveys were carried out with the help of a semistructured questionnaire. Results: It was observed that the people of the village use 33 plants distributed into 28 families as home remedies. These plants are used to treat diseases like burns, anemia, pain, fever, gastrointestinal disorders, heart disorders, abscess, cataract, diabetes, helminthiasis, urinary tract disorders, respiratory tract disorders, dandruff, conjunctivitis, skin disorders, night blindness, jaundice, hair loss, sexual disorders, inflammation, and vomiting. Conclusion: These home remedies, if scientifically validated, can form the basis of readily available treatment, thus cutting down the medical costs.

Keywords: Home remedies, medicinal plants, Chuadanga, Bangladesh.
