Avicenna, in turn, provides for medical purposes the use of more than 900 vehicles, most of which are medicinal plants. Centuries later, the Thracians, Slavs and Bulgars, following their ancient traditions attach great importance to the processes of learning and impact of plants on the human body. Phytotherapy gradually prevashta one of the most important aspects of folk medicine.
