Natural substances obtained from medicinal plants (MPs) and their plant extract (PEs) are used for the treatment of a lot of diseases in human pathology as well as plant pathology. So, it is importance to understand a golden relationship between man and his environment. The research work and application of MPs and PEs in the treatment of human and plant diseases is increasing day by day. Before the development and civilization in the world, MPs were traditionally used as a therapeutic agent for the remedy of various diseases such as typhoid, gonorrhea, measles and cholera. However, the knowing about the MPs for cure of diseases is confined to plant scientists or herbalists and it is believed that MPs and PEs will lose their potency if revealed to other people. In case of plant pathology, the overuse of synthetic and chemical bases fungicides and other pesticides are the main threat to the sustainable environment. Therefore, we should move towards MPs and PEs in case of both human pathology as well as in plant pathology. In this review, we will about medicinal uses of plants in past as well as in now a day for the management of various diseases.
