Creating Waves of Awareness
Spagyrics or Plant Alchemy as the medicine has been created by Paracelsus more than 500 years ago, and Homeopathy has been developed by Hahnemann 200 years ago.
Homeopathic mother tincture is made from plant or other natural source. All plants go through the process of maceration for making the liquid homeopathic mother tinctures . After being chopped the fresh plants pieces are placed into a hermetically lockable glass-encased grinder together with alcohol. Pure alcohol is used because it is the most effective solvent for extracting the plant's bio-active constituents and delivering them into the bloodstream and across the cell membrane quickly. Many of the plant's constituents are poorly soluble in water, such as resins, essential oils and most alkaloids.
Then the solution or mixture is placed in a dark container or space so that the chemical constituents of the plant are not destroyed. The soaking process can take weeks or even months depending on the substance.
Spaygyric essences are made from plants by a unique process, which neutralise their toxic components, but preserves their healing potential. It is concentrated essence, sometimes light coloured with the flavour and smells. So the difference between Spaygyric and homeopathy is even apparent to our senses, a homoeopathic remedy being hardly differentiable by color, smell or taste from a water-alcohol solution.
Spagyrics means separate and recombine, and can be used to make herbal extracts of great power and energetic force.
Homeopathic mother tinctures are diluted usually in alcohol, then using successive dilutions and succussions of this "mother tincture" potentised dilutions are created with a static or frozen vibrational signature of the original material used, but with none of its physical characteristics.
This misperception occurs more and more often as large European pharmaceutical companies realize the profitability of taking labour-intensive Spagyric mother solutions and stretching them into sometimes thousands of gallons of sellable homeopathic product. The facilitation of physical and spiritual healing is there is no reason to potentise Spaygyric essence, as through the circulation process it gets potentised and becomes full of healing potential and the vital strength of the plant.
Plant Alchemy or Spagyrics represents a form of homeopathy in which both vital healing energy and active substances are extracted from medicinal plants, creating powerful mother tinctures that can be further potentized by the circulation process. Derived from the Greek words spao (separate) and ageiro (unite), spagyric remedies were originally created by fermenting parts of wild herbs. This process produced concentrated aromatic solutions that were extracted and separated from the bulk plant matter. After fermentation was completed, the plant material was distilled in a special device, and the remainder dried and burned. The ashes were extracted and purified via distillation, then recombined with the concentrated solution. As a result, the finished spagyric essence contained the mineral constituent parts of the plant. Paracelsus pointed out that the vital energy of an herb is more important than the plant material itself. So spagyric remedies undergo six key steps: separation, purification, distillation, incineration, re-unification and Circulation.
Chopped plant pieces are added to yeast, sucrose and distilled water to initiate fermentation. This three-week process produces a natural alcohol intrinsic to the particular plant, resulting in a high quality mother tincture solution that contains vital energy specific to that herb.
this product undergoes repeated filtrations to obtain a solution which is completely free of impurities. Similar to producing a fine wine, this process requires time and precision because new particles created by the plant tincture during the various filtering phases must be removed to achieve an absolutely pure liquid solution.
Next the residue is further added to distilled water, which undergoes steam distillation process .
In step three, the original plant material used to produce the mother tincture solution is dried, caked and burned at very high temperatures, creating an ash. Which is added to distilled water and filtered to remove all impurities or heavy metals from the ash, the filtered solution is then heated to get the salts or crystals of the plant.
Finally, the pure plant crystals -- which stimulate metabolic process in the body -- are combined with the solutions obtained through steps 2 and 3. As the crystals are added to the solutions, a dramatic color change takes place and the specific aroma distinctive to the plant flows from the fluid -- creating the "miracle" of spagyrics.
Are all Homeopathic Mother Tinctures or Spagyric Tinctures Alike?
Certainly Not , Homeopathic mother tinctures are either straw or tea liquor colored with no specific taste or aroma of the concerned plant, whereas, Spagyric Tinctures bear the specific aroma of the plant , tastes sweet, besides light colored or colorless.
So next time you come across any Spagyric Mother Tincture, remember rule of three, Aroma, Taste and Color or physical appearance.
What about Dilutions in Spagyrics?
Spagyric essences, through the circulation process gets potentised, alike Homeopathy Potentisation is not required. So no dilutions or potencies are available in REAL Spagyrics.
What about Biochemic Salts in Spagyrics?
Spagyrics means plant alchemy, wherein no minerals or chemicals are processed, it is covered in another segment of Alchemy which is known as Metal or Mineral Alchemy. So neither theoretically nor practically it is possible .
