Phytotherapy makes use of the plant “as is” (the “mother tincture”) whereas gemmotherapy makes use of a 1/10 dilution (the “decimal tincture”) of the plant buds rather than the adult plant. Modern phytotherapy and gemmotherapy both contain standardized amounts of plant-derived active ingredients, and both are registered in the official pharmacopeia.
Since the 19th century, phytogemmotherapy has entered this modern scientific era having brought remedies such as colchicines, digitalis, and quinine. Some new diseases now surfacing on the horizon may yet have their remedy somewhere in nature, although still unknown to us. Therefore, this becomes an ever-evolving therapeutic modality, providing us an enormous assortment of remedies to help in almost every known disease.
