Abstract: A novel attempt has been made through this research work to develope medicinal herb extracts treated garments using alternate medical concepts to cure selected diseases. It is a new approach to cure the diseases by wearing the medicinal herb extracts treated garments. In this work, about 16 medicinal herbs such as neem, turmeric, holy basil, sandal wood, etc. have been selected for curing 7 different diseases such as allergic dermatitis, psoriasis, asthma, liver disorders, headache, joints pain, sinus trouble/ cold. Hundred percent cotton woven/knitted fabrics were treated with the selected medicinal herb extracts and 7 different types of curative garments have been developed. The developed fabrics have been tested for its antimicrobial activity using standard test methods. The antibacterial assessments of the medicinal herb extracts treated fabrics and clinical trials have confirmed the correlation between the curative performance and its antibacterial activity. The present study is an alternative method of drug delivery.
