A deeply rooted sector in our society with an ancient tradition are herbalists. In the Middle Ages, which is more or less the time when the first cities in Europe were structured (although in America and Asia similar social structures already existed and with a great profusion of population many centuries before) medical needs were met with the knowledge that was had at that time of the healing actions of herbs and botany in general.



This cultural heritage has been preserved for centuries, although it has obviously remained on a lower level, due to scientific knowledge and the implementation of medicine with all its advances, when treating diseases.

The cultural heritage we are talking about has meant that, in parallel and secondarily, the tradition has been preserved, which on the other hand has a scientific basis, we have to take into account that today there are many medicines whose content is derived from plants. It has made these types of stores continue to offer this wisdom, especially taking into account that minor illnesses can be treated with herbal medicine, thus avoiding that the body sometimes has to absorb chemicals that solve the problem but have side effects.


You will find botanical products in our market that, advised by professionals, will provide you with relief in the problems mentioned before, in addition to a wide assortment of registered and packaged products that, as a complement to your diet, will help you through natural elements to maintain health and a help the body, without the addition of chemical products that can sometimes present some form of harmful side effect.

In our country the great knowledge and cataloging of phyto therapy products stands out and it must be remembered that one of the most extensive leading books and knowledge that exist up until now, Medicinal Plants, The Renovated Dioscorides written by Dr. Pius Font Quer, it is fundamental in the current knowledge of phytotherapy along with other books that this Lleida pharmacist wrote, whose impact on botany has led to about 42 species and subspecies bearing his Latinized name …… .fontqueri
