MEDICAL PLANTS – SOURCE OF HEALTH

 Motto: “Why bother going to the medical center for every easy illness?” 

Fitoteraphy helps our body to fight agains easy illnesses by simple treatments. 

Deniplant Company organise a popularising program for medical plants and their way of using.  

The reason: Over 50 percent of the medicaments derive from plants now threatened with extinction, because of the massive harvesting and deforesting, according to an International Organization of Bothanical Gardens Preservation organization study. Plants hat in the future could help treating diseases like cancer or SIDA and which are about to disappear before the further researches will be done. At this moment, about five billions people benefit of treatment with these plants, and the researches forewarn us that losing  them will automatically conduct to unexpected problems in         medicine.

 “Fitotherapy is from always” 

The first data which attests that the summeriens used medical plants in therapeutic purposes dates from 6000 years b.C., which were describing various plants used by them in cureing the diseases of that time. In ancient times, Hipocrate, the most famous doctor back then, has wrote the “Corpus Hipocraticus” study, in which over 200 medical plants are described. 

Herodot itself    show us that the Dacians had acquaitances about how to use the medical plants for preparing different remedies. Thus in a viennese copy of the Dioscoride`s creation, named “Of medical matter” written in the first century of our era, we can find 24 dacians`s appellations of some medical plants. 

The latin poet Vergilius, reffering on the rich variety of plants on the Black Sea romanian shore, has declared in one of his writings that “the Port gives remedies”, that many had ventured into unknown, taking all the risks deriving from that adventure, for picking up the healing herbs from the Port. “Many herbs the Port is giving”, he specified. 

The first Romanian Pharmacopoeia, which firstly appeared in Bucharest in 1862, contains 300 simple remedies, from which 217 were of vegetable origin. Later, in the 1976`s Pharmacopoeia, which is still effectual, it was specified that vegetable products are used in a percentage on about 32% in medicaments. 

If our ancestors had used medical plants according to tradition, nowadays their use should be scientifically underlained, according the samples and laboratory researches. But it is done with a lot of  inaction, and very few specialists seem open minded. And here we are in the thid millennium,  having to use the romanian tradition and old remedies like there were handed over from generation to generation. 

It will always be light this ? 

Furthermore, the phytotherapy chapter is far from being closed and this all-around the world, even though the allopathic medicaments industry is more advanced than the weaponry one. This on the first hand, because there are still many medical plants which waits to be discovered or rediscovered, and on the second hand, because even though the known medical plants didn`t reveal all their secrets. 

Thus, this project`s motivation is an ecologically one too, for the pupils, teachers and, generally speaking, the whole community to become aware that they can contribute at preserving the surrounding envirovement, living in harmony with it. We desire that through this project to create an informing and exemplification chain at the whole community level, throughout which  the pupils to hand over the plants`s knowledge obtained at school to their parents, relatives, friends or neighbours. 

If all of this pilot-project goals will be achieved, we propose to implement it int other parts of the country too, in other communities, but also to extend it for the medical plants to represent not only the green space that surround us, but indeed a substantial source of health. 

Duration: The project have a undetermined length and we`re hoping that the included activities can be promoted for a period as long as possible. For that a closer look should be taken over the activities deployed and results acquired, starting with the month of may, when this pilot-project will begin, and all over its progress.
