Gemmo Memo: Gingko
Gingko biloba is the one and only surviving species in the lone genus of Gingkoacea. It is nearly extinct in its native form, with the exception of some found in eastern China. The Gingko you will meet today will have been cultivated. This deciduous, resinous tree can grow up to 120 ft, but perhaps only half that height in cooler climates. Gingko is known for its longevity and resilience. The tree is very adaptable surviving in settings where it doesn’t get much oxygen, such as near cement curbs, barriers, parking lots, etc.
Who might benefit from Gingko Gemmotherapy extract?
Adult men and women who experience physical symptoms with the head, ears, eyes or mental symptoms involving lack of clear thinking or mild depression. Although well known in phytotherapy for its anti-aging properties, it is now understood that the positive effects of Gingko are most helpful for those under the age of 60.
In my system for restoring immunity, Gingko is best used in a protocol once elimination has been optimized for these symptoms:
- Hearing difficulties
- Eye symptoms, to include disturbances to the retina
Important to note: Due to the anticoagulant action of Gingko, it should not be taken by those prescribed blood thinners.
