Herbal Medicines

To treat diseases with the help of medicinal plants is one of the oldest methods we have. Almost all cultures at all times have used plants for healing purposes. This knowledge about the healing power of plants is used and developed by many pharmaceutical companies today. Tradition and research are two pillars of modern pharmaceutical production. Today, the same high demands are placed on phytopharmaceuticals as on chemically produced drugs. As far as quality, efficacy and safety are concerned, they must comply with the same legal requirements. Thus, today we have an abundance of herbal medicines at our disposal which are supposed to help alleviate or cure complaints or strengthen the body. The possibilities in the application of phytopharmaceuticals are very large. Each plant has its individual healing power and can be used in combination with other plants. Phytotherapy is characterized by high tolerance and few side effects.

Medicinal plant of the year 2021

Myrrh is the dried gum resin from the bark of the myrrh tree. Many people are already familiar with the aromatic smell of myrrh around Christmas time. After all, myrrh was one of the gifts presented by the biblical three wise men. Since ancient times myrrh has already been considered as a valuable and prized product.
