"Preventing is better than healing"
(Hippocrates 460 - 370 BC)


In antiquity, all medicinal plants that would cause, when chewed, a bitter, sweet or aromatic flavour, were called herbs. In Ancient Greece, Aristotle’s “History of Plants” gave light to approximately 500 medicines. His father, Ippokratis Koos (460-337 BC), in his writings, reports 400 samples of herbal medicines.

The famous Theophrastus (372-287 BC), with his preserved book "About Plant Histories", laid the foundations of Βotany. He gathered all kinds of information regarding the 450 plants mentioned in his book, including their pharmaceutical properties.

Dioskouridis (kilikia 1st century AD) is considered the "founder of pharmacology". His knowledge of the healing effect of plants has not been overcome for centuries.

The other great doctor of antiquity, Galen (129-199 AD), prepared the natural healing formulas called "Galenical formulations" that were used until  the 18th century. He wrote about 300 books and in one of them he refers to all the known plants, in alphabetical order.

Herbs, in addition to their former use as a primary healing agent, have also been the basis of modern pharmacology. The World Health Organization estimates that about 80% of the world's population uses herbs as a treatment for various diseases and illnesses, as main ingredients in all local, traditional medical methods. Additionally they are  a common element of homeopathy and many other alternative therapies.

Today, out of the 119 medicines currently exported from plants, 74% are used by modern medicine, in the same or similar way they were used in the past as herbs. At the same time, the number of herbs used to make food supplements is even greater. Major pharmaceutical companies are in a constant search for possible medicinal properties of plants and herbs from around the world.

The  flora hides the secrets of the most brilliant beauty and health, proposing  the best possible solution to every problem. Over the years man has begun to forget about nature therapies and preferred to turn his interest to the products from chemical labs and industries.
