Dear Stephen,
I was reading that some lyme doctors who had success with your herbs, are now finding even more success with embryonic plant stem cells. The claim is that in their embryonic state they might have more beneficial plant chemicals? Is this substantiated by anything? What is your opinion on the subject?

Stephen’s response:
Gemmotherapy is what this is called and really it is only the tiny, early growth of plants they are talking about and rather loosely calling stem cells. These early plant shoots do have unique attributes, just as a plant root or bark or leaf or sap does. Really, it is just another part of the plant, long used medicinally by plant peoples.
