Phytothérapie

En deux mots :

Des plantes pour garder la forme.

 

Explications :

Les plantes sont utilisées par les animaux depuis des temps ancestraux. L'homme fait de même depuis plus de 7000 ans.
L'OMS (Organisation Mondiale pour la Santé) les  préconise. L'académie de médecine française les préconise également. Bien que la sécurité sociale les ait quasiment exclues depuis 2007 de ses prise en charge, elle restent incontournables pour qui veut rester en forme car elles restent accessibles  à tous. Par exemple, certaines plantes sont capables d'avoir un effet protecteur et régénérateur du foie.
