One of the Nurture “Farmacists” gave me a quick lesson on phytotherapy focusing on 10 plants that heal:
Altamisa-This plant is wrapped in a banana leaf and heated over fire. The extract is then taken pure to treat kabag or gas pain, indigestion, and dysmennorhea. It is also said to have antibacterial properties good for post pregnancy.
Oregano-This plant is rubbed on the skin to treat acne and dandruff. It can also be boiled or heated to get the extract to relieve cough and colds.
Taheebo - This plant has antimicrobial properties, which can prevent or alleviate symptoms of urinary tract infection (UTI). This is usually prepared and drunk as tea.

Mayana - This reddish plant can be applied to treat bruises, bukol or lumps, itchiness, and skin allergy.
Pansit pansitan-This herb is steamed and eaten first thing in the morning to help control blood glucose level for people with diabetes or insulin resistance.
