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
“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
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.

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
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.

about the medical plants nowadays, but our project`s
freshness would be the presentation of those medical
herbs which could be picked up and used in the very
moment of their presentation.
