Why I Study Gemmotherapy: Dana Campaen

Sep 20, 2019

by Dana Campaen A few years ago, my homeopath doctor gave me some “drops” when I had some health problems. And it worked like a miracle. I live in Cluj-Napoca, a beautiful town in Transylvania where Gemmos are produced at a very high level. My primary healthcare training is as an M.D. I have been working as a pediatrician for more than 20 years, and as a homeopath the last 8 years. After that experience, I started to participate in…

Mushroom Spinach Soup with Cinnamon, Coriander and Cumin

Sep 20, 2019

Here’s my take on a yummy mushroom soup that appeared in a New York Times fall soup feature. I love the challenge of taking on conventional recipes and creating a vegan/gluten-free version — and this one is no exception. Although I rarely pass up a mushroom recipe, this one has a combination of cinnamon, coriander and cumin that totally caught my attention. Ingredients 6 tablespoons coconut oil 1 ¼ pounds mixed mushrooms (such as cremini, oyster, chanterelles and shiitake), chopped…

Coaching Stories: Addie

Sep 7, 2019

by Addie Naquin I was initially interested in coaching to help my 1-year-old daughter with her eczema and food allergies. I quickly realized my own health struggles with severe abdominal pain and “ulcers” needed to be addressed, as well as my 4-month-old son’s reflux and constipation. I was hoping to gain true healing for my daughter, and I felt deep within that a 1-year-old did not need to be on Zyrtec or any other daily medications. Gemmotherapy has been an eye-opening…

Roasted Eggplant with Spiced Chickpeas

Sep 7, 2019

If you eat seasonally and live in Texas, late summer means eggplant, zucchini and peppers. And the best way to use this limited range of veggies is to get creative — something I don’t mind doing. This week, with a nudge from Julie Moskin, we enjoyed this gorgeous, Middle Eastern-inspired dish.  Ingredients 3-4 narrow eggplants, sliced into ½-inch thick wheels (be sure to choose eggplants with shiny skin and that feel heavy for their size) Sunflower oil and olive oil…

May 24, 2019 | 0 Comments

Meet Megan — mom, wife and RN — and learn why she studies Gemmotherapy. Why did you choose to study Gemmotherapy? Because it WORKS!!

What potential do you see for Gemmotherapy in the future? I see Gemmotherapy as a BIG part of the answer to truly…

Gemmotherapy has been an eye-opening experience for me. It has provided me with an understanding that the body has its own natural ability to heal itself. I’ve now realized that suppressing our immune systems with medications (which only treat symptoms) sets our health on a…
