‘Aarogya Vatika promoting medicinal herbs’: Prabhash Kumar | Lucknow News

LUCKNOW: In the hustle and bustle of daily life, we are going away from mother nature and as a result, diseases like hypertension, blood pressure and diabetes are gripping us. There is an urgent need to go back in the lap of nature and make medicinal plants a part of our life.
“Aarogya Vatika initiative by Navbharat Times is helping people to go back to medicinal herbs,” said chief development officer, Prabhash Kumar during setting up of the Vatika at Lal Bahadur Shastri park at Sarvodayanagar on Sunday.
Senior scientist of Central Institute of Medicinal Plants, Saudan Singh made the residents of the area aware of the medicinal values of various plants like Tulsi, Giloy and Aloevera.
Residents happy with the green initiative said NBT should continue its green marathon to make citizens of Lucknow healthy.
“This is a wonderful initiative which has made me realize that the cure of mild cough and fever is available in my garden itself,” said Karuna Dubey
Another resident from the same locality Chaya Dwivedi said, “Ashwagandha, Giloy, and Aloe vera are available in every household but not all are aware of their benefits. NBT’s event is making people understand that the cure is in their homes.”
