Green Medicine Event Concludes in Cuba

Green Medicine Event Concludes in Cuba

Havana, Nov 17 (Prensa Latina) After several days of interesting analysis on the therapeutical effects of homeopathy, the 5th Continental Congress on Natural Products and Medicine is winding up this Thursday at Havana’s International Conference Center.

Antioxidant action and the treatment of diseases produced by some virus and parasites were among the main issues tackled by experts from more than 10 countries attending the meeting.

Other topics included economic benefits, security and low toxicity of natural-origin compounds.

Stigmatized by some and supported by others, natural medicine is a truly controversial issue among the international scientific community.

Although some experts acknowledge there is no scientific evidence on its curative potentials, this technique has acquired great international popularity.

Cuban product Vimang, sold in over 20 nations due to its anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunological properties, and Trofin, a natural tonic with positive results in fighting anemia, were presented during the event.

The forum included master classes and round table discussions and was sponsored by the International, Central American and Caribbean Confederation on Natural Medicine.
