Search for support is the essential mind keynote.

The feeling of being caught in a life situation, without having the possibility to cope with, due to lack of support is the most important emotion of the new remedy.

Bamboo has strong influence on spinal complains and hormonal disorders. We expect bamboo to be one of the major women's remedies.

The bamboo shoot is itself a plant embryo, and this is a powerful signature that suggests the use of bamboo in childbirth and the time after.
