This lecture will provide the understanding of drainage, a synthesis of old ideas and new therapeutics having risen from the roots of homeopathy and botanical medicine. It is a technique of using organ-specific remedies in opening the emunctories, the body?s natural routes of excretion, to allow for the discharge of toxic material. This special presentation will examine the disease model, an emerging paradigm suitable for drainage and improving health. Drainage incorporates biochemistry and science into effective therapies, and gemmotherapies and oligotherapies will be presented. This lecture will introduce you to drainage and its impact on health and disease.
