Phytotherapy – What is it?


Phytotherapy is the knowledge about the use of medicinal plants as a medicine and considered one of the oldest and most important therapies. Used are not only the isolated active ingredients but also whole plants or part of plants (flowers, leaves, barks, roots, seeds) The main active ingredient determines the medical field of application.



The whole effect is based on a complex interplay of many different substances such as essential oils, bitter substances, tannins, minerals, trace elements and vitamins.
