Traditional Medicinal Usage of Tobacco – A Review

Sandeep Vishnu Binorkar, Dilip Khemji Jani.

Abstract
The Tobacco plant attracted the attention of several investigations. It accounts for millions of deaths each year from cancer, emphysema and heart disease. Yet, in certain neurologic and psychiatric conditions, nicotine can have useful therapeutic effects. For tribes throughout North America, the use of traditional tobacco plants for spiritual, ceremonial and medicinal purposes goes back thousands of years. Most Indigenous nations have traditional stories explaining how tobacco was introduced to their communities, many of which emphasized the sacred properties of the plant, containing both the power to heal if used properly and the power to cause harm if used improperly. This article is written with the intention to reviews various traditional and folklore medicinal usage of tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) all over the world.

Key words: Tobacco, Nicotiana tabacum, Ayurveda, Traditional, Medicinal.



Tütünün Geleneksel Tıbbî Kullanımı – Bir Derleme

Özet
Tütün bitkisi birçok araştırmanın ilgisini üzerine çekmiştir. Her yıl, kanser, amfizem ve kalp hastalıklarında dolayı milyonlarca ölümden sorumludur. Buna rağmen nikotin; belirli nörolojik ve psikiyatrik durumlarda, yararlı törapötik etkilere sahip olabilmektedir. Kuzey Amerika’daki kabileler için, manevi, törensel ve tıbbî amaçlarla tütün bitkisinin geleneksel kullanımı binlerce yıl öncesine dayanmaktadır. Birçok yerli milletin, uygun kullanıldığında iyileştirici, uygun olmayan kullanımında ise zarar verici gücü olan bitkinin kutsal özelliklerini vurgulayan, tütünün toplumlarına nasıl tanıtıldığını anlatan geleneksel hikâyeleri vardır. Bu makale, tüm dünyada tütünün geleneksel ve folklorik tıbbî kullanımını gözden geçirmek amacıyla yazılmıştır.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Tütün, Nicotiana tabacum, Ayurveda, geleneksel, tıbbî.
