V Manjula and Dr. T Selvin Jebaraj Norman
In this modern world and mechanised life people are facing many health problems. One of the common problems is respiratory disorder. Most of the time this condition is associated with the environmental pollution and food habits. Very few are affected due to their genetic make-up. Now-a-days respiratory disorder affects people irrespective of their age. It ranges between asthma to tuberculosis where the affected people experience dyspnea. In most of the cases people suffer with Chronic Pulmonary Obstructive disease. Majority of the people manage by using drugs, nasal sprays and inhalers. But long term usage of all these result in many side effects. The epiphytic fern gives the helping hand to people who suffer from relapsed, drug–resistant tuberculosis. This study is done to analyse the efficiency of the rhizome of Drynaria quercifolia as a case study of a 29 year old male who visited a tribal healer from Malasar community in the study area Velliangiri hills.
