Abstract


Medicinal plants constitute an important natural resource serving as therapeutic agents and raw materials for the manufacture of modern and traditional medicine. Haemotoxic bites of vipers affect the blood and lymph circulation, kidney function, skin and sense organs. These after effects have been treated with traditional herbalism. A total of 32 herbs out of the available 1058 medicinal plants are used in the systematic treatment of snakebites. The investigator, a traditional herbal practitioner and researcher on the ecology of snakes, gives a clarion call to conserve snakes for antivenin preparation and herbs to treat snake bite after effects. The work is based on extensive research on herbal medicine used to treat viper bite after effects. From among the 1537 snake bite herbal respondents, 100 viper bite patients were selected for the study. The cases studies reported acute renal failure with high creatinine and urea levels on entry. After 3 months herbal treatment using Rajendra Kidney formula required no dialysis and the creatinine level came down to 2.0mgs% and urea to 30 mgs%. Patients with severe symptoms of psoriasis after viper bite were treated with oil extracts of Indigofera tinctoria and herbal immunity boost ers, anti-ulcer and anti-inflammatory agents.
