Phytothérapie et pathologies respiratoires : conseils à l’officine

Abstract : Phytotherapy corresponds to the use of plants for therapeutic purposes. The first known traces of this use are about 50,000 years old. This is an ancestral practice which is currently the focus of renewed interest. In pharmacy the dispensing of herbal products is regulated by a complex legislation whose objective is to guarantee the safety of the patient. Medicinal plants are used to accompany patients with respiratory disease. Thirteen medicinal plants are addressed to manage symptoms as cough, allergic manifestations or respiratory infections. For chronic diseases, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, background therapy is crucial but phytotherapy can play an interesting complementary role. A reasoned assessment of the profit/risk balance is essential. The pharmacist must propose the medicinal plant(s) adapted to the patient’s symptoms while ensuring: precautions for use, absence of contra-indications, drug interactions and reminding the rules of good use.
