What Is Gemmotherapy?
Gemmotherapy extracts are derived from specific trees and shrubs, using the part that contains their most potent healing properties. Young buds and shoots are sustainably collected in European forests to produce a plant-based extract with potential unlike any other natural therapy available today. Gemmotherapy extracts support the immune system’s ability to effect a quick response to a wide variety of acute symptoms, making them an excellent resource. Under the guidance of a trained practitioner, Gemmotherapy extracts can be combined into deeper protocols to address every possible chronic symptom. These protocols are applied systematically, first optimizing elimination, then working further to clean, nourish, and restore organ function. Because the extracts are made each spring from the first buds and shoots of the season, this botanical medicine has a potency and healing capability that far exceeds any current phytotherapy. The meristems within each bud or shoot contain tremendous regenerative properties much like human stem cells. Gemmotherapy extends the drainage of toxins beyond the excretory (detox) organs. It takes in the detoxification of the skin, bones, heart, and nervous system. The principle of gemmotherapy is based on the premise that plant buds contain all of the enzymatic energy needed to develop into full grown plants and trees. These hormonal agents contain valuable informative matter required for the drainage of various organs and tissues at the cellular level. Gemmotherapy 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.
Biology of Gemmotherapy
The power of Gemmotherapy lies in the fact that it’s the only medicine which simultaneously nourishes and cleans cells. Each Gemmotherapy extract is based on a single tree or shrub and addresses individual organ systems. Some extracts are polychrests and have multiple actions while others have very specific uses. This gentle yet powerful medicine can be used on newborns to geriatric patients. It provides immediate support for acute illness and infections, leaving the affected organs clean and fortified at the end of treatment. Our knowledge of treating chronic conditions with Gemmotherapy is quickly expanding as a clear linear process takes shape. That the body heals best from chronic conditions when specific Gemmotherapy protocols are applied in a sequential order to address each of the following stages:
1. Opening elimination
2. Resolving acidosis and inflammation
3. Restoring and harmonizing normal organ function
Particular Gemmotherapy extracts are best applied at different stages in the process. By watching for very specific signs the body produces the practitioner can adjust the protocols gradually, preventing symptom aggravations and/or setbacks and creating at the end a lasting cure of chronic conditions. The most effective and efficient results can only occur when the Gemmotherapy protocols are complemented by a clean diet that is whole food and plant based.
Detoxification and Drainage
Although each remedy has specific actions and specific targets, the main goal of gemmotherapy is cellular detoxification and drainage. Healing starts at the cellular level and healing cannot occur when cellular functions are blocked due to toxins. Gemmotherapies also stimulate the proper functioning of the organs by allowing them to remove their toxic load. The main principle behind gemmotherapy is the promotion of drainage and detoxification at a cellular level. Only when this happens can the body truly heal itself. Drainage and detoxing in patients has changed over the centuries – hormones, vaccinations, drugs and petrochemicals are rampant in our environment as compared to in the past. These toxins can block the replication of cells. Without these cell replications, organ failure results.
I use Gemmotherapy in my practice because it surpasses all other natural therapies in its gentle yet direct action on organs and organ systems. Furthermore, I have found it to be the perfect first protocol for my clients as it promotes optimal elimination, the key to restoring the body’s ability to heal itself. After evaluating each client individually and assessing their toxic state, I select the needed amount of gemmotherapies and have them administered one to two times per day, depending on his or her particular needs and responses to treatment. The beauty of this system is you can start it along with other programs and get a complementary effect. I feel that areas of the body most impacted by environmental toxins need continued support to prevent them from re-building uptoxins and inhibiting the body’s ability to replicate cells. Toxins impact the gastrointestinal tract, nervous system, liver and kidneys the most, making them prime areas to concentrate on for drainage treatment and prevention.
If you would like to start a gemmotherapy protocol either to work on disease or to just maintain a state of calm and detox, contact me to book a consult.
