Gemmos LCC was founded to distribute revolutionary concentrated Gemmotherapy products and education. We wanted to create the same popularity for Gemmotherapy in the United Sates as exists in Europe. Many of our doctors requested us to carry complementary products of similar high quality. To better serve our doctors, become a more important supplier and lower their effective shipping costs, Gemmos added 2 new product established lines. Our doctors now appreciate our objectivity in helping them identify the best solution to their issues without the temptation of promoting a single product or therapy.

The GemmoBase brand of products are certified organic since 1993 by ECOCERT in Belgium. Our products are the most concentrated potent gemmotherapy products available because they are less diluted with glycerin or alcohol. Gemmotherapy products are made from buds and young shoots from trees and shrubs to make concentrated extracts. These are freshly picked and prepared to ensure maximum vitality, action and effectiveness. The buds are composed primarily of embryonic tissue and, thus, possess all the properties and energy of the adult plant. They also contain many active substances which are no longer present once the plant is fully developed.

Gemmotherapy is a super-active type of plant medicine, the powerful effect coming largely from the growth hormones of the fresh embryonic parts of plants, called Gibberlins and Auxins. Gemmotherapy has the power of stimulating the cleansing of the cells by draining away toxic metabolic waste products such as mucus, waste metabolites, dead cells from the defense system, and auto-immune complexes that are impairing cell function. Our remedies build up the function of organs. Since different plants have affinity for particular organs or tissues of the body, the Gemmotherapy remedy selected is important to impact the desired organs or tissue.


GEMMOTHERAPY- KNOWN FOR DRAINAGE & DETOXIFICATION

Detoxification is the process of removal from the body of metabolic waste products and of natural and man-made environmental toxins. Detoxification from the current pervasive environmental insults taken on by our bodies can be achieved in many ways; diet, neutraceuticals, fasting, hydrotherapy, saunas and chelating agents. These can all be important strategies in a detox process. As the toxins are eliminated from the body it is often helpful to have an optimally functioning excretory system to reduce any unpleasant detoxification reactions and enhance the detoxification process. This is where gemmotherapy is uniquely useful.

Gemmotherapy is more similar to a herbal rather than a homeopathic remedy, and has more of a biochemical effect on the body. The remedy is given to facilitate drainage of the primary elimination systems of the body, i.e. lungs, liver and kidneys serving a unique and an important part in any detox process. Other homeotherapeutic ingredients, nosodes, or other remedy with a detoxifying effect on the body are inadequate alone to complete a successful detoxification process because the dislodged bioenergetic toxins are not drained from the body. Instead, toxins remain in the body and create foci in other organs due to lack of an effective elimination process which may cause further suppression of the disturbances. Gemmotherapy is uniquely effective in eliminating these bioenergetic disturbances. This therapy is very timely for those living in developed nations like the USA where people carry a large burden of toxins and their energy is depleted by too much stress and overwork.


BIOTHERAPEUTIC DRAINAGE

“Juice fasts rely on plants for product liquidizing. Juice fasts aid cellular detoxification. Juice fasts can yield amazing results. However, gemmotherapy, a super-dynamic form of phytotherapy (the scientific understanding of herbology), yet gentle on the body, brings about slow, safe, deep cellular detoxification, thus initiating what is termed biotherapeutic drainage. Biotherapeutic drainage is the process of exhausting the intracellular space of xenobiotics, fungi, viruses, and bacteria – any and all toxins – throughout the whole body, by opening the pathways of elimination (emunctories) and expelling the toxic accumulations.

Body cleansing, repair, rebuilding, and reinforcement are supported and maintained in part by the emuntories; therefore, emunctories must be kept clear of debris. Gemmotherapy concurrent with oligotherapy produces deep cellular drainage and is, thus, involved not only in helping to eliminate toxic accumulations of xenobiotics, fungi, viruses, and bacteria but also serves to stimulate the optimal function of organs and organ systems. For this reason, gemmotherapy naturally works: (1) to improve a person’s overall current state of health; (2) possibly surmount genetic weaknesses; and (3) to support long-term wellbeing.” -Dr. Anthony Speroni, Gemmotherapy and Oligotherapy for Natural Heatlh Practitioners, page 58.

THE SECRET OF PLANT MEDICINE

Gemmotherapy is a super-active type of plant medicine, the powerful effect coming largely from the growth hormones of the fresh germinating parts of plants, called Gibberlins and Auxins. Gemmotherapy has the power of stimulating the cleansing of the cells by draining away toxic metabolic waste products such as mucus, waste metabolites, dead cells from the defense system, and auto-immune complexes that are impairing cell function.

In addition, Gemmotherapy remedies build up the function of organs. Since different plants have affinity for particular organs or tissues of the body, the type of Gemmotherapy remedy selected will support the organ or tissue that it has affinity for.

The use of the buds, young leaf and rootlets makes it possible to obtain a more active medication, with no need to prescribe large doses. Starting with a fresh embryonic plant distinguishes this branch from traditional plant medicine where extracts and powders are prepared from adult plants, sometimes dried.

Weight for weight, buds contain all of the active ingredients in more concentrated form than in other parts of the adult plant. Pharmacological studies comparing the action of buds extracts and usual herbal tinctures on target organs and tissues have clearly demonstrated an increased activity for bud extracts.
