vission

To identify medicines that come from natural materials and not industrial medicines, as well as identiffing semi-manufactured medicines that are extracted from plants and animal products and a simple chemical reaction takes place on them.

Mission

Working on educating the community about the ways in which herbs should be used, such that they are tested and known concentration, as there is an herbal pharmacopoeia in which the quantity of herbs that can be taken and the constitutional concentration of the active substance are established.
