What is gemmotherapy? By Michel Bouko Levy, MD

Gemmotherapy, or phytogemmotherapy, is the use of specific plants prepared as glycerin macerates and diluted in 1DH. They include buds, young shoots, rootlets, root and bark of the plant.

​The raw material is taken at the peak time of the tree or shrub’s annual germination, in the spring for buds or the autumn for seeds. Certain plant hormones and enzymes are released during this process, and in some cases are only present in the plant at this time.

The therapeutic effects of remedies made from the embryonic material of plants were first investigated in the late 1950s by a Belgian homeopath, Pol Henry. He then teamed up with a group of French homeopaths and biotherapists including Max Tétau  and O.A. They conducted the first experiments as well as human and animal clinical trials that elucidated the effects of gemmotherapy and summarized their clinical findings.
