Gemmotherapy is a branch of phytotherapy (more specifically embryophytotherapy) which was discovered by Henri Pol Bruxele and colleagues in 1965.  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 can be used alone or in combination with other homeopathic remedies.


As soon as they are harvested, the bud and embryonic plant tissue are soaked in a mixture of glycerin and alcohol, in a ratio of 1/20 of the dry weight of the fresh plant used. Glycerin is selected as an excipient as it allows for better extraction of the embryonic ingredients. After three weeks, the macerate is filtered and diluted to 1/10 with a mixture of water, alcohol and glycerin. With this 1/10 solution, Hahnemann's first decimal (DH), is the medicinal form of gemmotherapy remedies. It is the only one prescribed since it is the formula that provides the maximum and, above all, the most consistent effect. All of the glycerin extracted macerates are subject to the protocols in the French pharmacopoeia.

A concentration that is stronger than 1 DH risks causing some intolerance phenomena. A concentration weaker than 1 DH would provide irregular activity. All of the gems must be prescribed in separate bottles and not be mixed until they are used. Mixing in the same bottle carries the risk of chemical reactions that could modify or alter their therapeutic properties.


Gemmo remedies act to open up channels which enable the toxins liberated by the homeopathic medication to reach the exterior and finally to be excreted from the body. This reflects the fundamental principle of "cure by treatment from deep within and towards the surface."  The term "Drainage" reflects the dynamics of this therapeutic method, which consists of the stimulation of one or more excretory organs, such as the liver, kidneys, or skin. The ailments to which we fall victim develop on a terrain compromised by the slowing down of the eliminator organs coupled with a growing pool of toxic substances.  An aid to return to health is to decrease this toxic charge through drainage.**


Phytoembryotherapy, also referred to as gemmotherapy, is very close in concept to homeopathic therapy due to this drainage capacity. In a homeopathic sense, drainage stimulates the organs emunctories, allowing it to more effectively react to the homeopathic therapy. Three types of drainage have been distinguished:
1. Drainage by means of organ stimulation.
2. Drainage by means of tissue excitation.
3. Drainage by means of toxin elimination.

For many years gemmotherapy held an important place within French homeopathic circles where these maceration's were used for the purpose of drainage and detoxification. 
They have spent decades doing the chemical analysis of the buds, young shoots, rootlets and a comparison in the qualitative and quantitative distribution of the different components as compared to the adult plant. They have studied the high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) properties as an assessment of the activity of the whole bud as opposed to the active ingredient isolated in the whole plant. They have also carried out clinical experimentation that enables the physician to know the precise therapeutic possibilities of gemmotherapy and determine its main indications.

The French have tested and compared each of the different species within the genus to determine which one has the highest pharmacological effect. For example, that's why tilia tomentosa is used and not one of the other linden trees.

In the past drainage remedies have been limited to what was available in our Materia Medica. The kidneys were stimulated by berberis and solidigo. The liver with chelidonium, taraxacum, and carduus marianus. The skin was drained with fumaria, saponaria and viola tricolor. Other remedies were aimed at tonifying the veins like aesculus, hamamelis, hydrastis and viburinum. These previously utilized approaches can be amplified and diversified with the use of specific gemmotherapy remedies, as well as organotherapy which is used to stimulate or regulate the function of specific organs.

Gemmotherapy and Homeopathy as Partners
Society has changed considerably since the time that Dr. Hahnemann, the pioneer of homeopathy, was seeing patients.  Many of us today are loaded down with tranquilizers and sleeping pills.  Blocking antibodies, diuretics and calcium deposits are seen in heart and stress patients.  Hormonotherapy and progesterone treatment flourishes.  In addition, we've seen the development of a wide use of antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, analgesics and antihistamines. Homeopathic consultation becomes difficult because the patient no longer manifests the characteristic clear symptoms needed for diagnosis. For example, insomnia would no longer be the manifesting symptom of an ARSENICUM on sleeping pills! Gemmotherapy drainage becomes ever more vital. The results of this therapy allow, where possible, for the elimination of classic medications such as tranquilizers, thus enabling the patient to reach a state that permits a more precise diagnosis and the intervention of basic homeopathic remedies.**

Providing nutritional products that are consistently effective and
Simply the finest!


Manufacturer's Assurance
All DNA nutritional products are manufactured with 100% of label potency.

Scientific Innovation
The "Wick Formula" by D.N.A. Laboratories, Inc. is a true breakthrough in tablet design, producing ultimate bioavailability and absorption.  Each tablet contains a specially prepared cellulose web that literally transports moisture to the center of the tablet.  The hydroscopic nature of water soluble cellulose causes the web like fibers to expand, resulting in the gentle disintegration of each tablet.  This feature allows the body's enzymatic properties to concentrate on the contents of the tablet itself rather than wasting such energies on a solid mass of material.  Each timed release tablet delivers nutrients at its particular receptor site to ensure assimilation.

Glandular Innovation
Pure glands are processed to evoke the highest possible response with a preference for using the Azeotropic or Lypholized method.
The Azeopropic Process retains glandular material without high fat content, as in the case of the liver, Kidney, Thymus, Spleen and Lung Tissue.
The Lypholized Method retains desired glandular properties found in adipose tissue, as in the case of Brain, Heart, Adrenal, Thyroid and Gonadal substances.
Glandular tissue is derived from Porcine and Bovine sources, Bovine being free from the disease commonly known as BSE.

Herbal Integrity
Herbs are organically grown without the use of herbicides or pesticides.

How Homeopathy Works
Ingredients: 2 fl. oz (30 ml) 
FICUS CARICA (Common Fig) 1DH, 36.6% alcohol (V/V) Glycerin Macerate

*DH = Decimal Hahnemannian is the European equivalent of X.


Q.  What do all the "X's" mean?

The "X" is a homeopathic decimal designation showing the remedies potency. (POTENCY = the Strength of a homeopathic remedy.)  Potency (X) is shown after the remedy (ingredient) name. 

Homeopathic remedies are prepared through a process of diluting with pure water or alcohol and succussing (vigorous shaking). According to the principles of homeopathy, the more diluted it gets, the more potent it becomes. 

Homeopathic remedies begin with part of the original substance dissolved in alcohol, called the mother tincture. The mother tincture is then diluted many times. After each dilution the solution is shaken or "succussed". 
Homeopathic remedies are regulated and manufactured under strict quality controls by the United States Food and Drug Administration-FDA.

Homeopathic remedies are classified into three levels of potencies: X, C and M; refering to 10, 100 and 1,000 in terms of the amount of dilution.

A 1X potency is created by mixing 1 part of the mother tincture and 9 parts alcohol or distilled water.   In each successive number (increasing the potency 2X, 3X, 6X ), 1 part is taken from the previous potency and diluted according to the new potency.

The More Dilute the Remedy, the Greater Its Potency
  Dr. Hahnemann, the founding father of homeopathy, discovered this Law of Infinitesimal Dose by experimenting with higher and higher dilutions of substances to avoid toxic side effects. 
Most people believe that the higher the dose of a medicine, the greater the effect. But the opposite holds true in homeopathy where the more a substance is diluted, the higher its potency.  **

Q.  What is Homeopathy?

A.  Homeopathy is a 200-year-old system of healing that uses remedies made with very small amounts of natural substances from the plant, mineral, and animal kingdoms to stimulate the body's ability to heal.

Homeopathics are based on the principle of "Like Cures Like," and the smallest particle size that will obtain results and that will treat like challenges in the body, kind of like allergy shots.  According to Dr. Hahnemann, the founding father of homeopathy, "Each individual case of disease is most surely, radically, rapidly, and permanently annihilated and removed only by a medicine capable of producing (in the human system) the most similar and complete manner of the totality of the symptoms." In other words, the same substance that in large doses produces the symptoms of an illness, in very minute doses relieves it.**

While Classical Homeopathy assists the individual one ingredient (remedy) at a time, Combination homeopathics (more than 1 ingredient) are commonly used in our increasingly polluted world for our complex health problems whether seasonal or chronic.  Since there are no side effects with homeopathy, remedies can be safely combined, working together to strengthen and support organs to speed up the body's response and recovery.  

WARNING:  Always work with a doctor's supervision for maximum safety.  As with any drug, if you are pregnant or nursing a baby, consult a health professional before using this product.  Consult a physician for use in children under 12 years of age.  If conditions worsen, recur or persist for more than 7 days, consult your physician.  Keep out of reach of children.  Do not use if tamper resistant seal is broken or missing.

Directions:  One dropper full under the tongue two times daily.  The typical dosage is 50 to 100 drops three times per day, commonly administered in water and preferably prior to meals.  Remedies can be administered singly morning - noon - or night, or together utilizing 50 to 100 drops of each.

Shake against palm before using.  Take between meals.  Store in a cool, dark place. 


  • Take nothing by mouth 10-15 minutes prior to or following dosage. This includes food, drink, cigarettes, chewing gum, toothpaste, etc. Limit caffeine, nicotine, mint in any form, such as candy mints, mint toothpaste, mint mouthwash, avoid camphor, as in muscle and joint rubs, and moth balls fumes, limit breathing of strong smells, such as paint thinner, eucalyptus, cigarette smoke (especially menthol), raw garlic, onions and strong spices to one hour after taking a homeopathic.**

  • Succuss (shake against palm of hand).**

  • Place drops under the tongue and hold for 10 seconds to allow for absorption.**

  • Keep out of direct sunlight.**

  • Gemmotherapies may generally be taken as the same time with other suggested homeopathics.**

  • Gemmotherapies should not be taken with Liquitrophic or Essence remedies.  Liquitrophics and Gemmotherapies should be taken 20 minutes apart.**
  • Best if kept refrigerated after opening, however, may be stored at room temperature, which makes them great for traveling.  Please be certain to keep out of high temperatures (high heat) and out of direct sunlight.**

Q.  How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Can I Repeat the Remedy if the Symptoms Return?

A.  In Homeopathy, we are dealing with remedies that allow the body to heal itself, so there are no absolutes in how long a remedy will take, or if another remedy will be needed. 

Homeopathy typically works on a 1:10 time frame.  For example, if you have been experiencing symptoms of panic attacks for 10 years, then it may take a full year of homeopathy to resolve both the frequency and the intensity of the sensations of anxiety. 10 years 1:10 time frame = 1 year.  Always consult your health care practitioner before beginning any natural remedies. 

As long as the symptoms persist, the remedy should be taken providing that some changes are beginning to happen.  Since everyone is different, the length of time a remedy is needed differs from person to person.  In acute conditions, the improvement can be very rapid. With chronic illnesses that have existed for many years, some people find complete relief within a year or two, others need treatment for years after that. 

Homeopathics remove imbalances from the body, and allow the body to heal itself.  Homeopathic remedies differ from taking prescription drugs, herbs, supplements, and drugstore over the counter medicine. Homeopathy is not harsh to the system and doesn't work by suppression or covering up symptom.

Q.  What is an aggravation/providing?

A.  An aggravation (also know as a providing) is a temporary increase in your symptoms. This may occur as the remedy strengthens your system. As your system gets stronger, it is able to bring symptoms to the surface, and then move them out of your body. You may experience them as being intensified when they are on the surface. This generally lasts a short time - 15 minutes to 48 hours. 

1.  Masking a major disorder:  If pain or condition persists or worsens, it may be an indication that there is a more serious underlying condition. Seek further medical treatment if symptoms continue, worsen or recur for more than 7 days.  Always work with a doctor's supervision for maximum safety.** 

2.  Alcohol sensitivities:  If alcohol sensitive, the homeopathic drops may be put into a 3 oz. glass of warm water.  Allow 1 minute for alcohol to evaporate, then hold under tongue no less than 10 seconds (may have to be taken in more than 1 serving).  If the problem persists, alcohol sensitive persons may also get these remedies in pills without alcohol upon request.**


3.  Pregnant or Lactating: As with any drug, if you are pregnant or nursing a baby, seek the advice of a health professional before using this product. 

4.  Children:  Consult a physician for use in children under 12 years of age.  View KIDIRAL remedies.

Q.  How do I store my remedy?

A.  Keep bottle out of direct sunlight and away from heat over 100 F.  Remedies do not need refrigeration but should be keep it in a dark place.

Q.  I have Alcohol sensitivities, can I still take homeopathics? 

A.  If a person is sensitive to alcohol, place homepathic dose in a glass along with a teaspoon of warm (not hot) water.  Allow one minute for the alcohol to evaporate.**

Q.  Can I take more than one homeopathic?  Can I take them together (aka. combine them)?

A.  Yes.  The great thing about combination homeopathic formulas (multiple ingredients) versus singular formulas (one ingredients) is they may be taken in combination.  **Please note:  Liquitrophics and Essence formulas (larger 4 oz bottles) should be taken 20 minutes apart.

WARNING:  Always work with a doctor's supervision for maximum safety.  As with any drug, if you are pregnant or nursing a baby, consult a health professional before using this product.  Consult a physician for use in children under 12 years of age.  If conditions worsen, recur or persist for more than 7 days, consult your physician.  Keep out of reach of children.  Do not use if tamper resistant seal is broken or missing.
