Phytotherapy

The healing powers of botanical ingredients have been utilized all over the world for thousands of years.

Whether in traditional Chinese medicine, American Indian or Ayurvedic medicine, whether by Hildegard von Bingen, Paracelsus or Kneipp: Practically all world cultures and medical schools have used and will continue to use plants as a remedy. They are used for example in infusions or boiled concoctions (tea), as juices, tinctures, extracts, powders, in the form of essential oils or as phytotherapeutic products.

One of the principles of natural medicine for women is that each woman is seen as a whole. Plants do exactly this, figuratively speaking. Unlike in pharmaceutical medicine, no individual active ingredients are singled out in phytotherapy. Instead, herbal products use the entire plant, in which all the active ingredients of the plant are concentrated. Because of this, usually little or no side effects are observed during phytotherapy treatment.

For example, a possible side effect of anti-inflamatory medications are stomach intolerances and even stomach ulcers. With phytotherapy on the other hand, herbs are used which not only contain anti-inflamatory active ingredients but also ingredients which protect the mucus membranes of the stomach wall.

In a single medicinal plant, a whole team of agents – so to speak – work together in harmony to achieve a balance within the body, thereby facilitating the healing process.
