Abstract:
This thesis presents the results of an ethnopharmacological survey conducted with Bedouin women in Egypt (South Eastern Desert, Siwa Oasis and North Sinai) to document their knowledge of using medicinal plants to treat women's health problems, such as dysmenorrhoea, perinatal problems, womb cleansing and urinary tract infections. Data collected revealed that the Bedouin women commonly use more than 45 different plant species. Four plant species (Haloxylon salicornicum, Achillea fragrantissima, Mentha longifolia and Acacia nilotica) were chosen for phytochemical and pharmacological investigations in this project.
