Abstract:

A wound (injury) is defined as a breakdown in the body tissue's structural integrity caused by both internal and external stress. Depending on the type of stress it is experiencing, the external or internal wound is split into closed wounds and open wounds. The goal of the current effort was to catalogue the various plants that the tribal people of Odisha's Nuapada district used to treat their wounds. An investigation on the potential for several plants to treat wounds was carried out in the tribal community of the Nuapada region of Odisha from March to July 2022. In this examination, wound qualities were found in 17 species that belonged to 14 groups. This study made it very clear that tribal people are educated about regional herbal treatments and use a more efficient and benign traditional technique of wound care. This foresees a new, more expansive platform for the future creation of ground-breaking medications.
