”Nature is the doctor of diseases”
Hippocreates (5th century B.C.)
Phytotherapy lies in the beginning of the therapeutic search of man…
Environment and nature, part of which is the human, is the first drug production laboratory “nature of diseases physician” telling Hippocreates. The first written reference to collection of plants for therapeutic purposes translated from cuneiform and attributed to the Sumerians of 4000 Fr. .g. Other written references discovered in China and Mesopotamia (3000 BC.) Egypt (2500 BC) and of course in Greece before, during and after Hippocrates, subsequently by Dioscorides, Galen, etc. until today.
The history of herbal medicine is in essence identical to the history of Pharmacy, at least until the Second World War.The Phytotherapy, after a brief decline march 20 to 30 years (the years of the “chemical revolution” in medicine, ie after the Second World War until the late 60s), re becoming more and redefined its scientific value new technological possibilities and clinical experiences.
Chemical Medicine, since it was launched (and continues) isolates the active molecules of the plants to reach in order to produce them technically in the laboratory. But it never managed to exactly imitate nature. (Eg the ‘scurvy’ never treated with synthetic vitamin C but with the natural form found in fruits and vegetables). Now that the initial excitement of chemistry, the “magic pill” the decades ’45 -’65 has declined, forcing more and more scientists to turn to natural search solutions that fit into our human nature.Phytotherapy can contribute to a patients body at various levels, acting either coincidentally or causally and deeper. It can relieve acute situations in a direct, mild and safe. It can improve symptoms in chronic diseases through detoxification mechanisms and relief organs and tissues. It can contribute to the proper functioning of the body (functional disorders), stimulating, balancing, stimulating the immune system etc.
Phytotherapy can be more active, using whole plants or their parts (flowers, leaves, trunk, bark, root, etc.). Thus contain all the elements, maintain “the personality” and of course it is not as “innocent” as they think most and hence without the advice of a physician best be avoided.
Phytotherapy is used either in addition to other physical method medicine (homeopathy, acupuncture, etc.) or the conventional “chemical” medicine, or alternatively by itself.
