What is behind the term "herbal medicine"?
The technical term "phytotherapy" comes from the French physician Henri Leclerc and describes today's herbal medicine. In herbal medicine, diseases are treated with the help of plants. However, the power of plants is not only used for treatment, but also for prevention of diseases. In contrast to so-called orthodox medicines, medicinal plants rarely have side effects and are therefore easily digestible for the majority of patients.
The dosage forms of medicinal plants are very extensive, so that an easy intake is possible for everyone. In our online store you can find medicinal plant active ingredients in the form of tablets, dilutions, ointments and lotions. Compared to classical orthodox preparations, medicinal plants often contain not only one, but several active ingredients, so that the a clinical picture can be treated in its entirety.
Relieve discomfort with medicinal plants
The range of ailments that can be alleviated by medicinal plants is wide. Many people take the active ingredients of medicinal plants for colds, intestinal problems, skin diseases and injuries. Phytotherapy also provides support for psychosomatic complaints such as depression and sleep disorders. For mild to moderate depression, the power of St. John's wort is often used. Furthermore, some medicinal plants can be helpful in the urogenital area, for example in bladder infections or prostate complaints.

Mode of action of medicinal plants
Herbal medicine has a long history and is an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine. But also you can find very old references to herbal medicine in the teachings of Hippocrates in Europe. Of course, herbal medicine was not always as we know it today. Numerous experiments and trials had to be made before the active ingredients of some plants were discovered. Until today, not all potentials of herbal medicine have been exhausted and there are still some hidden healing powers waiting for us.
