Natural self-medication and remedies

When there were no pre-made medicines, nature’s remedies were the only medicines available to humanity. Effects and usage were therefore carefully studied, documented, and developed further.

However phytotherapy, known as herbal medicine, does not belong to the realm of alternative medicine. Diagnosis and therapy concepts in phytotherapy are the same as in the rest of scientifically grounded medicine. Just consider that

  • 90% of remedies are plant-based
  • 50% of over-the-counter remedies are plant-based
  • and 25% of medicines contain, active ingredients derived from plants.

Phytotherapy treats sick people or animals with so-called phytopharmaceuticals; these consist of herbal drugs or drug preparations which are used therapeutically fresh or as infusions, decoctions (teas), juices, tinctures, extracts, powders, essential oils, etc.

BE AWARE!! Do not believe in myths like:
“Natural remedies – naturally better!”
“Medicinal plants have no side effects!”

Even herbal medicines can cause unwanted effects and influence the effects of other medications. Therefore, the risks, side effects, and interactions of herbal products must always be carefully evaluated. We are always available to advise you in this area.

Medicinal plants also play an important role in some other therapy systems. They differ greatly in approach, therapy, as well as in the preparation form and quality of the remedies.

Some examples are:
  • Bach flower therapy
  • Aromatherapy
  • Ayurveda
  • Traditional Chinese medicine
  • Traditional African medicine
  • Anthroposophic medicine
  • etc.
