She researches the literature on their properties, interactions, side effects, conditions of use and contraindications.

« Most plant species that grow in the world have therapeutic properties, because they contain active ingredients that act directly on the body. They are used both in classical medicine and in herbal medicine. These plants have advantages that drugs often lack » (Larousse, 2001).
Thus, in the form of poultices, decoctions, infusions, fleet enemas, ointments and more, medicinal plants are allies of health used since the dawn of time as a treatment.
Today, many people greatly appreciate the support these plants provide to their health. However, although they are natural, their use for medicinal purposes should be done with some caution. Their inadequate dosage, their association with certain pharmaceutical products and their use in pregnant women or when contraindicated, can represent a threat to health. This is the reason why the health coach nurse presents this herbal therapy counseling service.
