It is customary to use plants to treat human diseases. There has been a recent resurgence of interest. Field studies on ethnobotany have been conducted in a variety of developing nations worldwide. It shows worry over the potential loss of important knowledge regarding conventional medicine. Many times, neurological problems are not seen as common ailments. Like epilepsy, which is the most severe chronic ailment, they are mental illnesses. Millions of individuals are affected. Other diseases include Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, meningitis, and stroke. Speaking, breathing, movement, mood, and memory are all impacted by nervous system problems. A comprehensive treatment option is herbal medicine. Growing these significant herbs will increase the ecosystem's terrestrial variety and aid in biodiversity preservation. Some of the significant plants used in the treatment of nerve illnesses are Centella asiatica, Avena sativa, Lagenaria sicerana, Cassia tora, and Cassia fistula. A taxonomy categorization can be constructed based on medical applications and the relationships inferred between the many medicinal plant species' biochemical attributes and medicinal purposes. Studies in tissue culture and molecular characterization are also possible. The most potent medical plant used to treat mental disorders can be obtained, and significant medicinal plant gene flow will increase terrestrial biodiversity.
