Therapeutic value of medicinal plants;

There are two thousand and five hundred years, Hippocrates advocated that our food should be our medicine, and our medicine should be our food. Even if the modern medicine has moved away from this idea using more and more drugs of non natural food kind, we are now experiencing a renewed interest in medicinal plants. We recognize their preventive and curative properties in some cases.


The World Health Organization recommends eating at least five portions of fruits and vegetables per day, that is to say 500 grams per day. If scientists do not yet know with precisely how fruits and vegetables contribute to our well-being, they are increasingly likely to accept the therapeutic value of food and to conduct research in this direction.

Some recognized medicinal plants:  

A selection of some medicinal plants will be presented here in future articles. Some of them exist as preparations sold in food stores or pharmacy. Their effect can be powerful. Therefore, like any medication, they should be used with caution.

   Precautions of using medicinal plants:

  1. Do not exceed the prescribed dose. 
  2. Stop taking medication in case of side effects or adverse reactions. 
  3. If your symptoms persist, see your doctor. 
  4. In the case of pregnancy or breastfeeding, do not take any medicines, including herbal, without medical advice.
