Within the realm of plant medicine is the lesser known use of Gemmotherapy. Sometimes referred to as plant stem cell therapy, Gemmotherapy uses the buds, young shoots and young rootlets of the plants, the embryonic parts that contain the constituents that bring rejuvenation and regeneration. This webinar will give an introductory overview of Gemmotherapy, how these extracts are prepared, and why this important plant medicine is different from using the preparations from mature plants. We’ll then look at several of the most used Gemmo remedies and their clinical application. Many of the Gemmo remedies are made from trees, so we’ll also be looking at the magic of tree medicine.
