  • Abstract

    Meghalaya is known for its exotic natural flora and fauna. It is a part of the seven sisters of the Northeastern states of India; with many of the scientist and research discoveries, the place was found to be a home for various and different types of traditional drugs used by the local people to treat the diseases. Among the many diseases, malaria was found to be a major disease in the state suffered by the people, especially those that live in the Garo Hills district and Ri-Bhoi district. These people used the local plants as medicines to cure the disease. Certain local plants from the state have been recorded as being useful for the treatment of malaria, namely, Leng-Budu, Do-Grikmi, Sokchon, Naronchi Budu, Chirota, Ginseng, and Carambola. These local plants are used by the people to treat malaria disease. These plants are majorly found in the districts of Garo and Ri-Bhoi and smaller parts of the East Khasi Hills district.
