Virus Fighter: Briar Rose

I had never heard of this until our pediatrician recommended it for our son. And now I recommend it to everyone when they ask me what we use for any virus. What is it?!  Great question.  This is not an essential oil, but gemmotherapy.  For those of us who have NO CLUE what that is, here is what I have found.  WARNING: this gets pretty technical.  I am going to try to break it down for all of us, but really, it seems a little complicated.  Here goes!

I found these definitions of gemmotherapy online:

Gemmotherapy is a revolutionary discipline in the natural health field. While most herbs are made from a mixture of roots, stems, leaves, and flowers, “gemmos” are only made from the buds and young shoots of a plant…and are thus made of embryonic tissues and enclose all the properties and energy of the future plant.… 
In addition to containing vitamins, oligoelements, and minerals, buds and young shoots are richer in nucleic acids and growth hormones than other plant tissues.  They also contain other active substances, such as auxins and gibberellins, which start to disappear after a plant reaches a certain point in its growth. - https://www.homeopathic.com

Gemmotherapy [from Lat. gemma, bud, and New Lat. therapīa, Grk. therapeia, medical treatment] is a form of herbal medicine that uses remedies made principally from the embryonic tissue of various trees and shrubs (the buds and emerging shoots), but also from the reproductive parts (the seeds and catkins) and from newly grown tissue (the rootlets and the cortex of rootlets). In two instances, remedies are also made from the sap. - Wikipedia

Gemmotherapy is a new form of herbal medicine, using remedies specially made from the buds and young shoots of trees and shrubs (other parts are used as well – typically the rootlets, bark, catkins, seeds and sap). They are gathered in spring, at the highest point of the natural cycle of growth and renewal. As a result, gemmotherapy remedies contain many nutrients, vitamins and enzymes released at just this time of year. From a holistic perspective, they capture the abundant vital energy concentrated in the germinative parts of the trees and shrubs. - http://www.alifeexperience.net

Gemmotherapy - is a modern method of draining the organism. It uses plant bud extract and other embryonic plant tissues to open cellular detoxification pathways. It employs buds, inner bark, rootlets, or very young shoots of plants from various woodland trees and shrubs. They are harvested in the spring, throughout the period of cellular division and plant growth. During this stage they contain the highest concentration of active growth factor hormones, auxins, and gibberllins. These hormonal agents contain valuable informative matter required for the drainage of various organs and tissues at the cellular level.
In order to extract the embryonic substance from the fresh buds, fresh plant material is macerated in a solution of 50/50 glycerin and alcohol for three weeks. It is then filtered and diluted. It is prescribed in the fist decimal potency for maximum effect.
 Gemmotherapy extends the drainage of toxins beyond the excretory organs. It takes in the detoxification of the skin, bones, heart, and nervous system. - http://homeopathicremediesandtreatment.com

SO, to put all this together – Gemmotherapy is a type of medicine that takes young plants (which have different nutrients than older plants) and places them in a blend of alcohol and glycerin to extract all these nutrients.  

Why does it work?  Gemmotherapy primarily focuses on organ drainage and detoxification, which is why it is so helpful when your body is fighting off viruses! It stimulates your organs and encourages and helps them to eliminate toxins.  This can improve your immune system AND push out the toxins are virus' that are making you sick.  Cool, huh? 

Briar rose is specifically young roses that have had all the goodness extracted from them and have been placed in this bottle.

I love learning about new remedies and herbs and am so thankful that my pediatrician introduced us to this little gem!

Extra tip: the best price I have found is on www.pureformulas.com, but you can find it here also.
