Abstract: Even in scientifically-based holistic medicine, herbal medicaments can assert their therapeutic significance. Their advantages in comparison to synthetic preparations are: fewer side-effects, better tolerance, wider effective spectrum, connection of causal and symptomatic treatment, as well as regulation in the field of the basic substance. These advantages are explained with the examples of chamomile, ginkgo, and pumpkin.
