Abstract


Folk medicine of the nature is the medicine of the local people. They are the resultant of the human close observation of the nature as well as their natural organisms. In this case, they watch the plants and their products, and they utilize them for the cure of the diseases. Magic and the witchcraft play a great role in it. In these days, the diseases are supposed to be the factor for resultant of the environment as well as the external factors are different from the chemical medicines; they are the part of their cultures. This information passes from the generation to the generation by talking and by the other means. The main difference between modern chemical medicine and traditional folk medicine is the causal factors of the disease. While modern chemical medicine tries to explain the causes of disease by germ theory; traditional medicine, which also accepts the existence of germs, explains disease by magical and supernatural event. Here in this review article, we are presenting the general aspects of the Albbizia lebbeck as well as some applications which are used by the people. The plant is very valuable from the ethnobotanical point of view and their parts’ extracts are used in the Indian Ayurveda as well as in the homeopathy and the Arabic medicines.
