The renewed interest in recent years for natural medicines has changed the landscape of contemporary therapies. Certain dogmas have been undermined, like the first command of conventional medicine which stipulates that healing a disease amounts to living healthy. This precept occults the essential fact that a pathology links to a human being, the patient, and that prevention is ultimately greater than treatment, for the majority of us.
Modern medicine vs. Health
During the COVID crisis, the policies put in place undermined all the safeguards that allowed people to keep good health:
- Confinement, rupture of social and human ties
- Closure of sports halls
- Abolition of local medicine for the benefit of a doliprane
- Closure of French restaurants and bistros for the benefit of the unhewed brought by deliverers
Modern medicine has indeed forgotten basic health principles in order to focus on an axis of silver and crazy profitability. Also, it is important that individuals take over the responsibility of their daily health above all else, and that one could articulate on several axes:
- The importance of nutrition and to have healthy food hygiene
- Sport and to be active every day
- Social/friendly links for the psychological aspect
The Cabri d'Or is overlooked in a proposal around nutrition and thus offer organic dried aromatic herbs and plants, therefore devoid of chemicals, as well as aromatic salts (for example, a fine organic salt from Camargue to the Biological bear garlic) in order to restore this pleasure of cooking while benefiting from the virtues of plants.
Major disciplines around natural remedies
Many people still ignore major therapeutic disciplines such as homeopathy, aromatherapy, traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda phytotherapy, therapy based on floral essences, popular or traditional and dietetic medicine. We will look at these different disciplines in future articles in order to support your curiosity even if the heart of the Golden Cabri activity is particularly based on phytotherapy.
The interest of these disciplines is that, unlike modern medicine, these focus on the individual and takes into account health as a combination of 3 factors:
- the look
- the mental
- The spiritual
The idea of these disciplines is therefore to create a balance in order to arouse a total feeling of well-being, both inside and outside.

Principles of phytotherapy
Phytotherapy is based on simple principles, listed below:
- The plant in its entirety is more effective than in the form of isolated extract.
