The use of medicinal plants in clinical practice is the central theme of the Sixth Day of Nutrition, organized by the Institute of Nutrition Josué de Castro. The event takes place on May 7 at the Center for Health Sciences, and is coordinated by teachers and doctors Wilza Glorimar Peres Rosa.

The popularity of such treatment led to the organization of an event that discusses the subject. However, according to Glorimar, be careful. Because it's natural, people believe that if you do well, it does not hurt. Not quite. A tea, if highly concentrated, may have an undesirable effect, says the teacher, who gives an example: there are various teas for glycemic control that are already widely proven fact, but must be used properly within the prescribed proportions. If treatment is not done properly, can result in hypoglycemia, which is as undesirable as hyperglycemia. Glorimar concludes that thing to imagine that, being natural, can be used indiscriminately scares me.

The treatment based on plants inspires attention as conventional medication, but one of its big advantages is to have fewer unwanted reactions to traditional medicines. In comparison with allopathic medicines, without doubt, the herbal medicines have fewer side effects, says Professor Dr. Glorimar, who is a researcher at the Laboratory of Nutritional Biochemistry, Institute of Nutrition Josué de Castro - UFRJ.

An example of possible use of herbal medicine is hormone replacement therapy by natural compounds, such as flaxseed, for women in menopause. It is rich in lignans, which are phytoestrogens. Can be used in hormone replacement therapy, without some effects, like breast cancer. By herbal treatment can be done more smoothly, says Glorimar.

The Sixth Day of Clinical Nutrition brings the discussion of various aspects of herbal medicine, herbal medicine and the law of the professional nutritionist, plant hormones, prescription and domestic preparation of herbal medicines and functional foods, in lectures by professional experts and researchers in the area.
