What is herbalism?

In its modern sense, herbalism is a professional practice that consists in commercializing medicinal plants.

Herbalism is not to be confused with herbology, a science that studies, in a purely theoretical way, the active effects and medicinal virtues of plants. The two practices are however close. The herbalist is also a specialist in phytotherapy, aromatherapy and gemmotherapy.

By metonymy, the term herbalist also designates the place where medicinal plants are sold. This store is then run by a herbalist, a professional herbalist who knows how to handle medicinal plants, prepares them and has training in herbal medicine and phytotherapy.

What is the history of herbalism?

The first treatise on the practice of herbalism and describing the use of medicinal plants dates back to the Mesopotamian civilization of the 4th millennium B.C., the so-called Uruk period (birth of writing). It is however very likely that herbalism was practiced during prehistory. These suppositions are regularly confirmed by certain archaeological excavations which bring to light medicinal preparations made from plants.

Herbalism will develop thereafter within the civilizations of Egypt and Ancient Greece. Indeed, there are many treaties dating from these two civilizations on the preparation of medicinal plants.

The first work in Latin to have come down to us was "de materia medica" written at the very beginning of our era by Dioscorides, a Greek physician and botanist. This work devoted to herbal medicine became the reference in pharmacopoeia until the Middle Ages in both the Christian and Muslim worlds.

At the end of the Middle Ages, herbalism was divided into three distinct corporations that often fought each other. These were the "herbalists" (who became herbalists), the apothecaries (who became pharmacists) and the physicians (who were mainly inspired by signature medicine).

The 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries were characterized by a constant development of knowledge about medicinal plants and herbalism. However, despite the effectiveness of herbalism, the appearance of modern medicine at the beginning of the 19th century tended to discredit the use of medicinal plants and phytotherapy. The 20th century then saw this practice practically disappear.

Fortunately, the "return to the land" that we have known since the 70's has brought herbal medicine back into fashion and today we find more and more herbalists in our cities and our countryside.

What are the benefits of herbalism?

Because herbalism consists of taking the best of medicinal plants to prepare remedies, this practice has many benefits and advantages for the human body.

Indeed, herbalism is a practice that, today, allows one to opt, in agreement with one's doctor, for a completely natural treatment and to free oneself from certain side effects of synthetic drugs. Herbalism allows to treat certain pathologies in a completely natural way.

Today, herbalism is an excellent way to treat small daily discomforts and recurring minor ailments in a completely natural way.

The intervention of a herbalist will be able to advise on the best plants to use to treat a pathology and on the best way to use them. He will then be able to advise herbal teas, infusions or fumigations to treat and relieve your small daily ailments.

What are the precautions to take in herbalism?

Although the herbalist uses 100% natural products, they must be used with care. Indeed, certain plants, badly used, can prove to be harmful for health. For this reason, and except in case of allergy and unless otherwise advised by the doctor, it is essential to follow the advice and respect the doses prescribed by your herbalist

In the same way, it is strongly advised to ask for advice from your doctor or herbalist before consuming such and such an herbal tea on a regular basis. Indeed, some plants are not recommended for people suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure or liver problems.
