The authors attempt to answer the following questions:
Is it possible to help health professionals identify conditions when the balance of our organism has been altered?
Are we able to assist our organism not to overstep the boundary that leads to a sickness or disease?
If so, how can we do it, other than by following a healthy lifestyle?
Could this question be answered by the use of phytotherapy?
Thousands of years of experience have enabled us to identify medical plants of great value. Using a modern approach based on serious research and quality production we can produce reliable tools to safeguard our health.
