ABSTRACT

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The Mawasi tribes of Chhindwara district of Madhya Pradesh India mostly use invertebrate derived medicine for a whole range of affections like delectation, ulcer, conjunctivitis, leucorrhea, pneumonia, fit, asthma, fever, rheumatism, ear pain, tuberculosis, vomiting, weakness, impotency and stop bleeding. Detailed information has been obtained on the traditional therapeutic use of 15 different invertebrate species. A field survey was conducted from July 2009 to October 2009 by performing interview through structured questionnaire with 10 selected respondents, who provided information regarding use of invertebrate animals and their products in folk medicine. The zoo therapeutic knowledge inherited since time immemorial was mostly based on the use of invertebrate animals as important medicinal resources. It is suggested that this kind of knowledge may be useful to save the life in emergency. The study also gives emphasis on the strategies of conservation and management of faunistic resources. The ethno -zoological  practice indicates that traditional knowledge of zoo therapy is a must and to be strengthened in order to discover the new line of resources in pharmaceutics.

 

Keywords: Indigenous, zoo-therapy, Invertebrate, Ethno-zoology, Pharmaceutics, Ailment.
