Title: Gemmotherapy and Oligotherapy for Natural Health Practitioners

Author:
Dr. Anthony Speroni

This book is not about using gemstones for healing. The word gemmotherapy is derived from the Latin “gemma,” (bud), and Greek “therapeia” (medical treatment). Gemmotherapy is a modern medical intervention focusing on the cause of disease. Its remedies are a type of extremely potent herbal products manufactured principally from embryonic tissue of various trees and shrubs; but also from seeds, catkins, rootlets, and sap.This book is about scientifically-based, real medicine and powerful therapeutic agents.
It is a must read for professional or laypeople who want to know about gemmotherapy and oligotherapy! It serves at the core of a college curriculum designed for medical doctors, naturopaths, and other healthcare professionals in mainstream and complementary and alternative medicines. It is a fascinating, well written book providing readers with valuable reference tables and data about how to confidently and effectively incorporate gemmotherapy into a clinical or consultation-based practice.

Title:Gemmotherapy and Oligotherapy Regenerators of Dying Intoxicated Cells: Tridosha of Cellular Regeneration

Author: Marcus Greaves

Marcus Greaves B.S., N.M.D., began his career as an allopathic doctor. After practicing for many years in allopathic medicine, he chose alternative medicine and became a holistic practitioner. Dr.Greaves graduated from medical school in France in 1968.Gemmae is the French word for bud. In this type of therapy the young shoots and/or buds of trees and shrubs are picked in the springtime and macerated in a glycerin and alcohol solution. After about one month the mother tincture is prepared as a 1x dilution. It is more akin to an herbal rather than a homeopathic remedy, having more of a biochemical effect on the body. The remedy is then given to the patient to facilitate drainage of the primary emunctories of the body, i.e. Lungs, Liver and Kidneys. This therapy is very effective for Americans who carry a large burden of toxins around with them and whose energy is depleted by too much stress and overwork.
