This book is not about using gemstones for healing. The word gemmotherapy is derived from the Latin 'œgemma,' (bud), and Greek 'œtherapeia' (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.
