HERBAL MEDICINE COURSES

Herbal Medicine is the study or practice of the medicinal and therapeutic use of plants, more precisely, the active part of the plant, Herbalism or Phytotherapy.

 

Its origin is known since ancient times. Archaeology recently brought to light texts written over 4000 years ago, describing the properties of medicinal plants. As empirical therapy, traditional plants have long been the only treatment of nature put to the service of man. Herbal Medicine has been used for medicinal purposes for as long as recorded history by people from many cultures around the world.

 

It was used in Ancient Chinese, Greek, Egyptian, Indian (Ayurvedic), Native American and African medicine.

 

This therapeutic method is still widely used in China and, in recent times, we have been witnessing a growing interest in Herbal Medicine one again due to the evolution in modern general medicine regarding the advantages of complementing Conventional Medicine with Natural Medicine.

 

Herbal Medicine or Phytotherapy acts in depth, without harming the body's defences and stimulating rather than replacing them. The result is effective and durable. Thus, today 75% of Medicines around the world are derived from herbs.
