Local herbs and phytotherapy

It would be a sin to miss out on all the renowned health benefits that the local world of plants provides. Herbs have been the basis for medical treatments throughout much of human history, and such traditional procedures are still widely practiced today, though with a twist of modern medicine, of course. Closely related to herbalism as a whole, phytotherapy is the intended medical use of plants and plant extracts for therapeutic purposes. Lithuanians have been known to use a large number of locally-found herbs to treat all sorts of illnesses.
