Phytotherapy, the use of plant-derived medications in the treatment and prevention of disease.

Many people have doubts about the extent of use of synthetic drugs and their side effects, sometimes alarming. A more gentle treatment with herbs also corresponds to the interest in ecology and natural remedies. The World Health Organization estimates that world herbalism is practiced three to four times more often than conventional medicine.

Numerous people start to use for minor problems and less serious illnesses, such as colds or flu, herbal medicines, and even some doctors rely heavily on herbal medicines.

The action of medicinal plants as a complex of a number of active substances in a single plant is often in a favorable sense different from the effects of individual isolated natural substances or chemical drugs. In many cases, plants are safer and more effective than isolated ingredients. Each herb is a small chemical laboratory. Therefore, in addition to the main specific effect, herbs always show non-specific, generally reinforcing effects that individual chemicals, of natural origin, can not naturally show. Due to the rich content of their substances, the herbs have an extremely wide range of effects, which is very advantageous because such a drug interferes in several places at one time. This is important, especially in those cases where the diagnosis is not entirely accurate.

Phytotherapy can help patients with most illnesses, including long-term illnesses. In some cases, it may be used as a complementary or concurrent treatment of diseases. This reduces the dosage of effective pharmaceuticals and reduces the risk of adverse drug reactions.
Generally, herbs work slower than conventional drugs, the active ingredients in them are less concentrated. This is especially true for long-term illnesses. Herbs, however, also enhance the body's natural healing abilities, so the patient often experiences improvement relatively early.

In addition to the treatment of specific diseases, the goal of phytotherapy is also to restore the overall health of the patient and encourage vitality. Phytotherapy is by no means an omnipotent method, but it is neither an obsolete, overcome and worthless form of healing, as some doctors believe.
