The Costa Rica News (TCRN) , has decided to make a group of articles on types of natural therapies and medicines. Previously, we emphasized complementary and alternative medicine. On this occasion, you will learn about natural medicine.
Complementary medicine specialist, Miyen Wu, who clarified that she studied Natural or Herbal medicine with Keshava Bhat (father of Tropical Naturism). She states that this type of medicine must be handled with great care because ‘there are plants that heal and others that kill’.
Herbs can be very medicinal and beneficial, as long as they are known and cut at the right time, that it is not on a full moon, that acid rain has not fallen, or that they have applied nearby pesticide. ‘Today, I use capsules trusting the lab to process the herb well at the right time, by the way, it has given me good results,’ said Miyen Wu.
However, Phytotherapy is also Herbal therapy, because it simply studies medicinal plants, in order to make a therapeutic approach in the intervention with patients. Now there is a greater pharmacological knowledge about medicinal plants because they have become much better known generating great demand for their consumption.
Herbal medicine can be defined as the use of plant-based products for the prevention, cure or relief of a wide variety of symptoms and diseases. It is part of the so-called natural therapies. A good part of its extensive use is made without consultation to specialist, but remember to consume them with caution, since they have specific safe doses.
