Gowey Tincture

Gowey tincture is a gel largely composed of sarracenia extract that is part of a protocol developed by Dr. Brandie Gowey for the treatment of multiple medical conditions. It is prescribed for squamous cell carcinoma, viral infections (HPV, Herpes Simplex Virus I/II), methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and even common warts, spider bites, and bee stings. The ingredient sarracenia is harvested from the pitcher plant and it has potent anti-viral properties. Gowey found that this tincture relieved patients from the intense pain they were experiencing with vesicular lesions forming on their membranes as a result of herpes simplex viruses (HSVs). Gowey tincture has also become an optional therapy for patients with cervical dysplasia.


Gowey tincture is typically administered as a topical gel and as such is strictly for external use only. Your compounding pharmacist can compound and create various forms of delivery in 20% or 30% concentrations that will be suitable for your specific needs. Gowey tincture is generally applied 3 to 4 times daily unless otherwise directed by your primary care physician. Follow your physician's directions for usage and application. If you have questions, ask your physician at your initial appointment as it is important to clearly understand how to utilize Gowey tincture properly for safety purposes, and to achieve the optimum results from your treatment.


Gowey tincture is often tolerated well in concentrations of 20% or lower; however, the higher concentrations of up to 30% have caused more apparent side effects in some. It is important to note that any concentration of Gowey tincture may cause side effects as everyone has a unique body chemistry and as such individuals may have different results, side effects, or outcomes. If you experience any side effects that are persisting or worsening, contact your doctor. If you experience any side effect that feels severe, seek medical treatment immediately. Some of the known possible side effects are listed below, though this is only a partial list:

  • Dryness
  • Burning
  • Stinging


If you are considering the use of Gowey tincture as part of your treatment for any condition you should first check with your doctor and have him or her evaluate your medical status to decide if Gowey tincture is advisable for you to use.

Ask your physician if there are any contraindications specific to your condition or state of health, age, or otherwise.
