Gemmotherapy is a drainage system developed in the 1950’s by European homeopaths. In French, “gem” apparently means “bud” or “sprout”. And so this medicine uses the young shoots of various plants to drain toxins from the tissues. As in herbal medicine, each of the chosen plants has an affinity for certain tissues or organs, so the remedy mixtures can be used to tailor a detox medicine for that individual. By removing toxins, the organ can get back to work!
