Abstract
The present study, based on the information supplied by the performers from Oltenia, obtained after the personal field research, focuses on the traditional remedies and treatments, in order to underline the efficiency of the herbs and wild plants, in the prophylaxis and the treatment of different diseases, especially the respiratory ones.
In the first part of it, there was analysed the role of the ancient healer, accentuating the identification of what caused the disease, with the purpose of finding the appropriate cure. There was evidenced, as well, the protective role owned by the amulets and talismans, along with the magical valences that they were given. The traditional remedies, the therapeutical virtues of the medicinal plants have been known
and appreciated since ancient times.
In the second part, the one of the investigation, there was reproduced, based on our field research, a rich recipe recording, which proves and confirms the variety of the cures used for treating the respiratory conditions. These plant-based remedies are simple or consisting of mixture cures. For instance, some mixtures for treating the respiratory diseases include medicinal plants, alcohol and products of the beehive. The properties of the medicinal plants, the beneficial effects for the health of the human body, determined the dwellers of Oltenia to become aware of their necessity and the importance of their consumption, even nowadays.
