If you want to find out more about gemmotherapy, you'll need something to read. Here are all the books currently available in English on this subject. Hopefully this short guide will help you find your way around.
The first English book on gemmotherapy was by Max Tetau MD, Gemmotherapy: A Clinical Guide. It’s over twenty years old now and so a little behind on more recent developments. But it's still a sound introduction and contains a lot of useful information on the main remedies. Tetau was one of the ‘founding fathers’ of gemmotherapy, and this is the translation of a book he wrote in French. You can get it from Minimum Price Books, cost $65. Tetau's other work has not yet been translated into English.
Gemmotherapy and Oligotherapy: Rejuvenators of Dying Intoxicated Cells, by Marcus Greaves MD, is cheaper at $21.99, also from Minimum Price, but also available at other outlets including Amazon.com. It’s full of rather distracting typos and quirky expressions (the author's first language is French) and as a self-published book, it needs some editing. Some of Dr Greaves' ideas may seem a bit far-fetched at first, but there is much wisdom in his writing and his recommendations are very reliable.
Dynamic Gemmotherapy, by Dr Joe Rozencwajg, came out in 2008. As with all the English books on gemmotherapy, there's a French (language) connection - Dr Joe is originally from Belgium. This is another self-published work, made by Lulu.com. My copy (bought when it first came out) is rather rough and ready in presentation, though the contents are good, and Dr Joe says it has now been made to look like a real book. Inside there's some interesting clinical information from the author's practice. Price $26.05 from Amazon.com.
Gemmotherapy: Clinical Guide and Quick Reference, by RC Massner DC, ND, self-published; 49pp. You can safely ignore this simple ring-bound booklet because it's just an abstract of the clinical information from Tetau's book. I can't see the point - Tetau's book is not hard to use. If you do want it, it’s also available Minimum Price Books, for $12.00.
Gemmotherapy: the Science of Healing with Plant Stem Cells, by Roger Halfon MD. This is an attractively presented but rather brief introduction to gemmotherapy and its remedies. As with Tetau's book, which it resembles, it is a translation of an earlier French work by Halfon. The indications it contains might satisfy a casual reader, but not a practitioner or even someone wanting to self-prescribe. This book is professionally produced and has a pleasant feel, the front cover photograph is beautiful but incongruously of lilac blossom rather than buds. Good value at $11.66 from Amazon.com.
Gemmotherapy and Oligotherapy for Natural Health Practitioners, by Anthony Speroni ND, NHD. This book is first and foremost a book about the naturopathic view of cleansing and detoxification. There is rather little useful information about gemmotherapy and oligotherapy. Most of it is in the form of charts, presented as if in the form of a database printout, which are sketchy and make it difficult to get an overview of the remedies and conditions . While helpful in places, overall this book lacks focus, with irrelevant detail outweighing helpful information. Cost $49.99 from Amazon.com.
