Silent battle


Dr. V.P. Mohana Kumari

Dr. V.P. Mohana Kumari is fighting a silent battle for medicinal plants. Plants cannot go to the leaders of their country to talk about their worries about extinction from this earth. It is not high on the agenda of most world leaders. So I am doing that. My life is for them.

Plants are extremely important for all living beings, including people, but we are not always aware of that. Without plants there is no life possible on earth.

I am an Ayurveda doctor working in India and in The Netherlands. For me and my work it is very important that medicinal plants are available. I am treating my patients with herbal medicines and for that I need plants.

During my strolls here in the beautiful landscape of East Netherlands I discovered different medicinal plants that is now on the brink of extinction in my home state Kerala.

Most of these plants are not yet properly researched. One of them might have the answer to some of our worst illnesses like inflammations, depression, cancer or aids.

It is unthinkable for me to sit beside and do nothing. I have to act, because these plants have to be protected for the future of our children. Only we can do something about it and it has to be done NOW.
