The gemmotherapy remedies have a very potent effect in the body, so are used within the guidelines of homeopathy. They help elimination by opening things up and also aid in tissue regeneration, allowing organs to function better. Because of their power to restore vital energy to faltering functions, tissues or organs, the remedies have the ability to regulate and balance the organism. There has been scientific research since the 1950’s demonstrating the effect of the gemmotherapy remedies.
Gemmotherapy is a super-active type of plant medicine, the powerful effect coming from the growth hormone of the fresh germinating parts of plants, called Gibberlin. It has the power of cleansing the cells by draining away toxic metabolic waste products such as mucus, broken down metabolites, dead cells from the defense system, auto-immune complexes and antibodies that are choking cells to a near death stranglehold.
Beyond that, Gemmotherapy remedies build up the function of organs. Since different plants have affinity for particular organs or tissues of the body, the type of Gemmotherapy plant selected will support that organ or tissue it has affinity for in regeneration through the plant hormones.
The use of the buds, young leaf and rootlets makes it possible to obtain a more active medication, with no need whatsoever to prescribe large doses. Starting with a fresh embryonic plant distinguishes this branch from traditional plant medicine where extracts and powders are prepared from adult plants, sometimes dried.
Young parts of plants are harvested and placed in mixture of glycerine and alcohol to soak for 21 days. Glycerine allows for better extraction of the embryonic ingredients.
Then they are prepared in accordance with the official method for homeopathic preparations in the French pharmacopoeia, the most exacting standards in the world.
A 1:10 dilution is the medicinal form of the remedies. It provides a consistent effect and maximal results.
All gemmotherapies are prescribed in separate bottles since mixing carries the risk of reaction with each other that alters their therapeutic properties.
Hawthorne berries are traditionally used for conditions of the heart. The Latin name for the plant is Crataegus oxycantha.
The Gemmotherapy preparation of Crataegus is of the young buds of this plant. With up to 50 to 75 drops twice a day, the effect is magnified. It can be used to normalize heart tissues, reverse chronic heart failure, help in recovery from surgery in children with congenital heart defects, for tachycardia, and arrhythmias. After a heart attack, Gemmotherapy Crataegus will normalize EKG readings in 2 years. How’s that for restoring function!
Wild woodvine, or Ampelopsis weichii, in Gemmotherapy form is useful to rebuild joints as it stimulates the regrowth of ligaments & cartilage.
The Sequoia tree, or Giant Redwood is the picture of strength and longevity. The gemmotherapy Sequoia bud is supreme for being like a fountain of youth, decreasing the signs of aging by normalizing hormonal function, especially for women. It also helps to rebuild adrenal function with Ribes nigrum.
Carpinus betulus, or European Hornbeam, in the Gemmotherapy form, is specific to the sinus mucous membranes. It can be used for chronic sinusitis, chronic bronchitis, and allergies.
Common Juniper, or Juniperus communis, is well known in herbal medicine for its effect on the kidneys and bladder. The Gemmotherapy preparation Juniperus also works on the kidneys to reverse almost any kidney condition, even helps clear uric acid from the body. It tonifies the liver to work more efficiently as it stimulates the hepatic cells for general detoxification, and is useful in liver cirrhosis.
The therapeutic applications for Gemmotherapies are as follows:
Cardiovascular and Hematological Remedies:
A – Disturbances of arterial circulation
B – Disturbances in venous circulation:
C – Disturbances of blood coagulation:
Two buds are active in decreasing blood coagulation. It is most valuable to prescribe them in relation to certain laboratory data.
D – Cardiac problems:
E – Disturbances in blood count:
A – Liver:
B – Stomach:
C – Intestine:
A – Rheumatic disorders:
Rheumatic disorders require the administration of three specific buds that should be prescribed by order of increasing severity.
B – Gout:
C – Decalcification:
The most frequent dose of all of these medications is of 20 to 30 drops per day of each, to be taken with a little water before meals, either alone, or mixed in the glass immediately before being taken. These doses must of course be adjusted according to the individual reaction of each patient. The physician may either decrease them or increase them. However it is essential to prescribe these buds in a unitary fashion and not mix several medications in the same prescription bottle.
Our main purpose is to educate and guide you towards optimal health. We are a group of holistic health care practitioners who believe in the “Healing Power of Nature”. We are dedicated to your health no matter what your diagnosis or symptoms may be. Our main therapeutic modality is the application of a European Biological Therapy termed “Biotherapeutic Drainage“.
Biotherapeutic Drainage is a system of medicine originating in Europe. European physicians have been practicing the theories of Biotherapeutic Drainage for over 80 years. In 1996 Dr. Gerard Gueniot, the world’s leading physician in the application of Biotherapeutic Drainage, began lecturing in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Dr. Gueniot has been instrumental in bringing Biotherapeutic Drainage to North America. Since 1996, Dr. Abell has been studing with Dr. Gueniot and has been awarded with the distinction of instructor of Biotherapeutic Drainage in North America. Biotherapeutic Drainage is unique because it is the only system of medicine that utilizes the unique therapies listed below with the goal of returning normal physiology to the patient. Each therapy has it own principles and effects, but when they are combined an amazing syncronicity occurs. The therapies utilized by Biotherapeutic Drainage includes the following:
UNDA number system (Homeopathic Drainage)
Gemmotherapies (Plant bud herbal therapies)
Gammadyns (Oligoelements trace elements)
Schuessler Cell Salts (mineral salts)
Plex Homeopathic Remedies (Symptomatic homeopathic remedies)
Organotherapies (Homeopathic organ therapies)
Homeopathic remedies according to Miasm, Temperament and Constitution
By utilizing these unique remedies, our practitioners are able to treat acute, sub-acute and chronic conditions with incredible results. The art of Biotherapeutic Drainage is to construct a treatment plan that properly utilizes the above remedies most effectively in the patient. When the practioner prescribes the remedies, the goal is to correct the patients physiology (human biological function). In order to truly heal, one must correct the physiology back to it’s normal function. This is something that pharmaceutical medication simply does not and cannot do. Pharmaceuticals are designed to alter normal physiological function, but they do not establish normal function. If a medication is needed for the rest of your life, the medication did not correct the problem but merely is altering the problem. In acute situations this can save someones life, but in chronic conditions the medications create adverse side-effects. Our goal is to not suppress or alter the problem, but to bring back physiological normalicy to permenantly correct the problem.
So now the question is – Why are our bodies not functioning as they normally should be? The direct answer is TOXICITY. We live a world of tremendous toxic burden which is affecting our physical, mental and emotional well-being.
We no longer live in a world that is pure and natural. Humans are in a state of constant bombardment by environmental and dietary toxins. These toxins are literally destroying our physiology. Our jobs as natural health practitioners is to remove these toxins and prevent the re-intoxification of our patients. In order to truly heal we must rid the body of these toxins. The following are some of the problems we face on a daily basis:
Drugs (legal and illegal)
Toxic food products (artificial sweeteners, partially hydrogenated oils, preservatives, etc)
Each of these substances have extremely detrimental effects on every living organism on this planet. The majority of substances that are introduced into our environment have NEVER been tested for safety.
