Spagyric Medicine Uses
In the United States, alternative medicine and therapies are becoming increasingly popular as people are seeking an integrative approach to their health and well-being. While some of these alternative practices have already made their way into mainstream society, such as yoga, acupuncture, and aromatherapy, many still remain largely unknown. One of these lesser known practices is that of spagyrics—an ancient alchemical preparation of herbs into herbal medicine. In this blog, we will dive deeper into what spagyric medicine is, what makes it different from other herbal medicines, and its uses to remedy some of today’s most prevalent ailments.
What is Spagyric Medicine?
Spagyric medicine is a special sort of herbal medicine which has been used as a healing tonic for centuries. Developed by Paracelsus (1493-1541), German-Swiss alchemist and physician, it was believed that the spagyric method could capture the true essence of any given plant or herb and transmute it into its most pure and potent form, ultimately creating the most powerful plant medicine in the world. Although spagyrics is considered a lost art and continues to remain a mysterious marvel to many, physicians and homeopathic doctors alike are beginning to rediscover spagyric medicine and see its true potential to heal a wide array of ailments.
Spagyric Medicine vs Other Herbal Medicine
Understanding how different extraction methods effect and maintain the efficacy of the plants’ medicinal properties is important when choosing an herbal medicine. From water, alcohol and propane extractions to CO2 and other solventless extraction methods, there are many different ways plants and herbs can be prepared. While nearly all of these extraction processes are able to extract most of the plants’ compounds, spagyrics is the only method that utilizes the whole plant and, thus, the only herbal medicine that contains the entirety of the plants’ medicinal properties. This is possible by taking the extraction one step further.
In the spagyric process, the herbs first undergo an alcohol extraction, in which most of the plants’ active compounds will be extracted. Whereas all other extraction processes stop here, spagyrics aims to extract the more subtle active principles that are considered to preserve the native vitality of the original material. These remaining compounds lie in the plants’ mineral salts. So after the alcohol extract, the herbs are burned to a white ash, mixed with distilled water, and filtered. The solution is placed on a burner to evaporate until a pool of crystallized mineral salts appear. The salts are ground up and mixed back into the alcohol extract, completing the final step of the spagyric process and resulting in a true full-spectrum herbal extract.
