At the 4th Annual Lyme Induced Autism (LIA) 2010 Conference, Dr. Elizabeth Hesse-Sheehan spoke about Medicinal Embryonic Phytotherapy (MEPTM ).
Adult plants have many downsides over their embryonic counterparts. They may contain toxic compounds such as lead, arsenic, cadmium, mercury and pesticides. Adult plants do not have the same high concentration of phytochemicals; plant stem cells, and plant hormones as compared to the embryonic extracts. Embryonic plant extracts can be powerful tools for both detoxification and the management of microbial issues. They are often “bipolar” in that they can address both extremes of a given problem such as constipation or diarrhea with the same product. In terms of detoxification, embryonic plant extracts repair and strengthen the primary organs of detoxification such as the liver, kidneys, lungs, intestines, and the skin which promotes more efficient drainage and detoxification. The plants also have specific action in supporting detoxification through their phytochemical constituents. They may act as chelators, secretors, and excretors.
Development of a costumed made protocol with embryonic plant extracts is done after a detailed intake; history, physical exam, and lab testing including blood, urine, stool, saliva, and toxicology testing. Relevant blood testing includes a CBC, comprehensive metabolic profile Chemzyme 25, hormonal panel, inflammatory markers with cytokine testing, lymphocyte subset panel including the; CD-3, CD4, CD8, CD-19 B-cells and the CD-57 natural killer cells (NK), viral antibodies titers, fibrinogen, lipid panel, Vitamin D, homocysteine, C-Reactive Protein, RBC magnesium, immunoglobulins, urinary organic acids and environmental pollutants biological assessment, Th1/Th2 evaluation, glutathione, SIgA, Gliadin SIgA, Transglutaminase SIgA, and neurotransmitter testing. Once Dr. Sheehan has reviewed all laboratories testing, a detailed kinesiological evaluation is also conducted.
Putting together a comprehensive Biotherapeutic program requires the use of both laboratory evaluation and muscle testing. In order to maximize benefit to patients, an extensive understanding of the phytochemistry is necessary. Embryonic plant extracts are extremely complex and have a wide range of biological activities. Sheehan shared a “Lyme Cocktail” using embryonic plant extracts which consists of Sweet Chestnut, Yarrow, Wheat, Wormwood, Maize, and Rye. These support the body in dealing with acute and chronic infections including co infections, biofilms, detoxification and immuno modulation support. Sweet Chestnut is effective against Bartonella, Borrelia, Babesia, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasma. Other embryonic plant extracts would generally be required based on individual needs. Mixing one 15ml bottle of Cedar of Lebanon and one 15ml bottle of Juniper plus one 15ml bottle of Rosemary with 10 ounces of distilled water in a spray bottle does work as a very powerful tick repellent though it should be kept away from the eyes. It can be sprayed on the skin and clothes as well. Repeat every time you wash. Embryonic plant extracts are so concentrated that “less is more”. For children, average dose is 1-3 drops 3 times a day. One embryonic plant extract remedy can often take the place of 2-4 other adult herbs.
