In the Restoring Immunity System:
Dogwood plays a very small role in the Restoring Immunity System in stage 3 in a protocol to restore heart function.
The small bud of this shrub provides the raw material for Dogwood Gemmotherapy Extract. This bushy, richly branched shrub, up to 6 to 12 feet (2 to 4 m) tall, has long, blood-red branches. In spring and fall, the leaves become especially beautiful by turning red. This explains the name “sanguinea” which means blood. The term Cornus comes from the fact that the wood is as hard as a horn. The fruits are non-comestible berries although they are not toxic. Like all other parts of this plant, the berries are bitter and astringent. Widespread throughout temperate Europe, Dogwood grows in plains and hills on calcareous, nutrient-rich, neutral to alkaline soils. It rejects in the form of suckers, which makes it invasive. Its very extensive roots help to fix the soil. It resists down to -13°F (-25°C) but looks for sunny areas. Dogwood is a medicinal plant forgotten both by popular tradition and by official medicine.
