Date of publication: 09 February 2007
Description/subject: 15th Myanmar Military Medical Conference 2007: Utilization of Seasonal Flowers in Common Health Problems..."...From this compilation programme, medicinal uses of flowers which are obtainable seasonally were already documented in ancient Myanmar traditional medicine literatures.

It is recommended that seasonal flowers should be collected at the time of flowering and should be stored for family uses and manufacturing purposes.

On the other hand this document would be beneficial for Myanmar people..."
