|Title:Gemmotherapy and Oligotherapy Regenerators of Dying Intoxicated Cells: Tridosha of Cellular Regeneration
Author: Marcus GreavesMarcus 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.
