Gemmotherapy: A Therapy that Nourishes, Repairs and Produces Regeneration
This pretty much unknown, yet officially recognized branch of phytotherapy, is called gemmotherapy. But don’t misjudge – it has nothing to do with gems or gemstones.
Instead the word comes from gemma, Latin for bud. Gemmotherapy employs buds, inner bark, rootlets or very young shoots of plants from various woodland trees and shrubs to remove toxins from the body. It is a modern method of draining the organism. These extracts and tinctures work better than one might expect. Explore in-depth the science and art of gemmotherapy.
We have just now entered the third millennium when humanity ought to be embarking on a new path, the road towards warmer human relationships and to a better way of living. Science and technology, with their boons, have, on one hand, ensured as never before an increase in the standard of living in our civilization, but on the other have devastated the environment and set up a hectic and stressful pace of life bringing about serious health problems. Allergies are on the rise and so are deadly diseases such as stroke, heart attacks, cancer and other illnesses, which threaten our lives and lower the average age of the population.
Because established medicine is not able to tackle these problems without causing adverse reactions, we see today an ever-growing part of the population turning to natural methods and remedies for prevention and treatment. What are the treatments like? Natural treatments have a restorative effect on the body until full recovery is reached, while having a minimum impact on its natural functions.
Although herbs have been used to treat human body diseases and illnesses since ancient times, with advances in science and technology, conventional medicine tended to prevail over new or alternative treatments. However, herbal medicine is enjoying a renaissance today. Herbs contain substances which are necessary for the human body, such as vitamins, trace elements, hormones and enzymes. We must not forget, however, that it takes longer to feel the effects with herbal treatments than it does with conventional medicine.
Herbs have been used in various ways since time immemorial, whether made into teas, salves or tinctures, or used in bath mixtures, when the substances reach the entire surface of the body through the skin.
What Is Gemmotherapy?
Different from herbal remedies that use parts of the mature plant, Gemmotherapy is an phytoembryotherapy with extractions made from the germinating parts of trees and shrubs. It is more potent than whole herbs and plants, because these buds, shoots, rootlets, and germinating embryonic parts contain plant growth hormones much like human stem cells.
