Since the generations, the whole of mankind is attracted towards white Mountain Himalaya for its celestial beauty, snow laden highest peaks, meadows, medicinal and aromatic plants, flowers, rivers lakes, glaciers, caves, majestic forests, hidden mysteries and emerging of energy from its spirituality and serenity.Its first scientific literature of mankind Rig Veda is source of information about healing process in Himalayan regions. fte Vedic hymns provide insights into early age diseases and its cure with the help of Himalayan origin medicinal and aromatic plants, its healing water and local rituals. Its tenth mandal of book is solely devoted to such plants and herbs. It sung the glories of these plants and describes Soma Plant as a king of all medicinal plants and who spread all over this planet from the white mountains of Himalaya. It says, Soma, you are born in Himalaya, you cure the Diseases of eye, head, and purify blood and increase the strength of body. You have healing powers and is a source of life.Ancient books of Ayurveda have described Himalaya as Oshadhiprastha, a house of medicines. Some of you might have heard the name of Rishi Chyavan who invented Chyavanprash, an Ayurveda mixture of Himalayan herbs and minerals to re-gain his youth and vigor. A feeble and old aged Rishi, not only re-gained his youth but lived a life of thousands years. A miracle lifesaving herb, Sanjivani Buti, infused new life into the dying soldiers of Ram in the battle field of Lanka. Aryan literature is full of praise for Som Rasa, an intoxicating divine drink of Devas which made them fearless, brave and immortal. With the passage of time, ancient knowledge of these divine herbs is lost and mankind is deprived to reap full benefits from these lifesaving Himalayan wonders.Healing is practiced by local for thousands of years. Home remedies like nutrition, treatment of all type of minor diseases to complicated treatment of snake bite, poisoning, mental disorder, childbirth, bone settings are prevalent in the entire Himalayan region. Many locals claim that they have seen enlightened souls wandering and meditating in the mysterious caves and surviving on Himalayan medicinal and healing herbs, not known to ordinary people. I am a native of Himalaya and directly benefitted by miraculous healing power of medicinal and aromatic plants, herbs and other substances having their origin in this white mighty mountain. Most of the time, these herbs and plants were used by local with advice of elders to cure common cold, fever, dysentery, stomach pain, headache, jaundice, wounds, and indigestion besides taking help of Vaidya to cure other ailments. Apart from self-experience, I have been witness to the use of herbs in many forms by locals under the guidance of experienced herb experts and local Ayurveda Vaidyas.
