Although there are compounds that have a different origin even if it is natural, like animal and mineral substances, they are not considered phytotherapy because they don’t come from plants. There is a part of phytotheraphy which uses active principles from mushrooms, like mycotheraphy. Inside this category we can find very active phytochemical compounds which may help our organism to regulate itself although some of them can have many adverse effects and so they must be used considering possible side-effects or undesirable reactions which may affect our body. This phytotheraphy branch has been used for thousand of years by the Chinese medicine with great results.


With this natural therapy we can treat many ailments and the same way conventional medicine has a vademecum of medicines, there is a herbal vademecum to treat practically everything. Each plant and food is designed to contribute to different vital functions of the human being and its deficiency can create imbalances and even diseases, therefore different plants can restore the general balance of the body, in particular special functions that are not being efficiently performed due to many pathological causes.

In the vegetable world we can find directly all the necessary nutrients and all re-balancing substances without needing the animal kingdom. For example, there are plants that contain omega 3 like walnuts (which contain omega 3, 6 and 9) yet none vegetal oil contain all of them at the same time.
