Abstract

THE POPULAR HERBALISM WAS STUDIED IN ZAGORI OF EPIRUS FROM PHARMACOLOGICAL POINT OF VIEW. THE INFLUENCE BY QUACKS (VICOYATRI) IS OBVIOUS IN SOME VILLAGES, EVEN TODAY. THE EVALUATION OF THE AUTHENTICITY IN THE VARIOUS RECIPES IS HANDICAPED BY THE FACT THAT HERBALISM IN THE AREA OF ZAGORI HAS BEEN PROBABLY INFLUENCED BY THE EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION WITH OTHER NATIONS. THE PRACTICE OF HERBAL REMEDIES IS NOWADAYS DECLINING, DUE TO THE IMPROVEMENT OF HEALTH CARE ON A NATIONWIDE BASIS. IN ZAGORI, SEVERAL PLANTS ARE USED IN A UNIQUE WAY, WHILE OTHERSARE ALREADY MENTIONED IN THE INTERNATIONAL BIBLIOGRAPHY. NEW THERAPEUTIC INDICATIONS ARE ARISING BY THE USE OF SOME HERBS, WHICH MUST BE STUDIED THOROUGHLYIN ORDER TO DETECT THE SCIENTIFIC BASIS OF THEIR USE.
