Department of Dravyaguna (Pharmocology & Pharmacognosy) :

Dravyaguna is very important department in ayurvedic medicine. This department deals with various medicinal plants of ayurvedic classics. Here we teach students to identify the drugs, how to use them, how they work in the body and what effect they show, in which diseases they work.

In Ayurveda more than 600 medicinal plants are included as drugs and they are used either alone or in combination with each other to alleviate the disorders. In fact, they are grown in various agro-climatic zones of our country. In recent years, global awareness on use of medicinal plants as "Natural Medicine" has drawn the attention of State and National Institutions and Government also to look back into ancient heritage of India - Ayurveda.

Use of herbs as medicine by the sizeable number of population has drawn the attention of health planners of developed and developing countries around the World and also of World Health Organization (WHO) to address issues related to "safe, standard and quality" products based on medicinal plants.
