Review of the work
Phytotherapy, the art of healing through plants, is practised since the far distant past and in every continent. The medical plants may act from the physical plan itself (tissues, organs and body systems) to the mental and emotional states or even the spiritual and energetic field. The undesired side effects caused by some chemical medicines have helped to rehabilitate phytotherapy. But this does not mean that plants may not be toxic and/or inoffensive. Therefore, it is recommendable to have all the knowledge that phytotherapy demands. There are different ways of following a treatment with plants; the aim is not always, of course, to heal. Phytotherapy’s aim is specifically to help the organism fight the disease and recover the balance which had been affected, which means the transmission of a therapeutic strategy for the patient and propose him/her the use of plants.
