Abstract

Tisanes, which include all the home remedies made from medicinal herbs, whether these are infusions, teas, decoctions or macerations, continue being of great importance and usefulness, both as a sole treatment for minor syndromes or as an additional aid to treat acute or chronic illnesses. In tisanes or infusion remedies, the principle active ingredients are found in lower concentrations which leads to a milder pharmaceutical action, but also provides a lesser degree of possible undesirable side effects. In upcoming articles, the author shall review the herbs most frequently used for treatment of minor pathology which one can easily handle, as an infusion, maceration or decoction, in order to provide beneficial effects in our patients and for ourselves. The author shall classify these according to their recommended use and pharmaceutical action.
