What the Fitoterapia is

   "For every illness there is a plant."

The fitoterapia is not of certain a young medicine.
The man just gone out of the caverns, has exploited what the nature made him available. It started to use the fruits and plants to feed and therefore to understand what they served him to feed, whether to feel better, what they gave him a sense of drunkenness, those that gave him discomforts or straight the death and therefore to defend.

The essays of the various civilizations in different epoches are the expression of this complementary medicine. Through the interest to return to the nature, the pharmaceutical colossuses, through the means of communication, you/they have proposed in unchanged way or almost the medical experiences of the past. There were no king and emperors that in the time they didn't interest him any medicinal plants. Chinese, Egyptians, Hebrews, Phoenician, Assyrian.

After Christ the team of the Latin bloomed.
Among the Latin writers that actually bring us to our days Catone, he/she talks of 120 medicinal plants to the De Re Rustic. Plinio the Old one, author of Natutalis Historia formed by 37 books, devoted officinali to the active principles of the plants. The big medical Ippocrate, neither it listed 200, a great deal dettagliatamente, so much to actually be made text of it to the Middle Age. The Chinese attribute the origin of the fitoterapia of it to the to the emperor Shen Nung 3400 to.C., what the author of the Chinese herbarium would be, the Pen Tsao Ching, in which 237 prescriptions are listed. Subsequently, in 1590, a great catalog of medicinal grasses was published in 52 volumes in which 1094 plants and recipes are described for 11000 preparations. In 1874, in Egypt, in the valley of the Kings, the papyrus of going up again Ebers to 1500 was found to. C. On the papyrus you/they were described well 876 recipes erboristiche. The fame of the herbalists Egyptians he/she was intact for many centuries. The founder of the western erboristeria, Pedanio Dioscoride, lived in the The century and the great Greek physician Galeno in Egypt were brought for learning the art of the recoveries.

In the Middle Ages, the tradition erboristica was preserved by the monks.
The undisputed interest for the medicinal grasses, from everybody, despite the undisputed successes of the last decades, because?
The medical class, the patients, are not thankful of the big mass of medicines synthesized by the man. The toxic effects of these new powerful medicines introduced on the market, don't satisfy neither him neither the others. Other answer can be that in every way we owe the most important discoveries to the nature. We think about so many discoveries, the bends, the only one still in degree to take care of the malaria. The curaro, one of the most valid helps in the anesthesia. The morphine, pain-killer. The penicillin, All these and others owe them to the nature. 

The concept of medicinal plant

The world organization of the health (OMS) in 1981 has specified the term of medicinal plant, assigning her/it to every vegetable that contains in one or more than its parts, substances that can be used for therapeutic purposes, in the form of prepared simple, or, after having isolated her and you chemically modify, you/they can belong to pharmaceutical products..
With this definition you/he/she is implicitly wanted to revalue a whole series of plants, as a rule known, with the expression of plants her popular medicine, that you/they constituted up to few ten or I am the base of the medical science, you forget then with the following advent of the indiscriminate consumerism of the medicines of synthesis. Without wanting to diminish the undisputed value of certain modern medicines, the intervention of the OMS has had the precise understanding to reassign their undisputed functions to the medicinal plants in determined sectors of the medicine, above all there where for therapies are asked "bland" and deprived of drawbacks, that some chemical substances of synthesis can bring.

According to the data of the organization of the World Health, published, still today 2 people on three all over the world it resorts to the Fitoterapia. The United States, advanced nation 1/4 of the medicines prescribed by the physicians technologically, contain principles extracted by the vegetables. Also in Europe, Germany, uses 70% of the you consume in the European continent. A relationship of the 1974 of the World Health Organization recommended that you/he/she had to be extended and to encourage all over the world the use of the remedies Fitoterapci to the populations, to be able to give a suitable sanitary assistance.

The fitocomplesso.
Following those that are the millennial techniques, it uses all the substances present in the plant.

Curative power is in the nature. Vis sanatrix naturae.
Following searches, for the effects indesiderati and collateral of the chemical substances of synthesis, you/he/she has reached the conclusion that the grasses, in comparison to the medicines I am more born by the organism. The administration of the medicines they behave two effects: one positive and one negative. You owes therefore every time to appraise if the first one is superior to the second. Using the grasses, a chemical mixture never employs him. With the fitoterapia the total exploitation of its beneficent ownerships is had.

To recognition of the importance assumed by the fitoterapia, near various Italian universities, courses of search and specialization have been founded in fitoterapia, science and technology of the plants officinali.
