Abstract: Dakshina Kannada district is known for the preparation and practice of traditional, folk, Unani and Ayurvedic medicines. The district hosts many traditional healers, pandits and Ayurvedic physicians and medicine manufacturers throughout the urban and rural localities. About 192 classical preparations and 84 proprietary patent medicines are being manufactured in this district. Among the proprietary patent preparations, the medicines used in the treatment of asthma and bronchitis, menstrual disorders and liver disorders are on the top in the production list. The products are not only marketed in the district but also in the neighbouring districts, and in Kerala, Maharastra and Goa along with other company products. Majority of the manufacturers obtain raw materials required for their production from the locals and tribals to the extent possible, and for the remaining, they are dependent on the local dealers.
