<p>Medicinal plants have been used by man to cure his ailments since ancient times, used instinctively, as some animals do today to purge themselves or to reduce the effect of a snake bite. Therefore, we could well say that they have fulfilled their curative function since before man appeared on Earth. Sumerian and Egyptian papyri of extraordinary antiquity are known, which were already true treatises on Phytotherapy.

Therefore, natural remedies have not been totally abandoned, despite the extraordinary advances in pharmaceutical chemistry. On the contrary, today wild plants would not be able to supply the market and it has been necessary to resort to large plantations in order to serve not only the primitive users, but above all the large laboratories, which extract from these plants the substances that had previously been used in the form of simple home remedies.
