3 C o n t e n t s Editorial... 3 Paracelsus - The Seven Metals: Aurum II... 4 E d i t o r i a l From ancient times in Himalayas there has been a simple way of living to maintain health. A short pranayama (breathing exercise) in the morning, no longer than 5 minutes, intake of vegetables, fruits, milk and cereals, an appropriate footwear while moving, a positive attitude of mind to receive the events of the day form part of daily routine. Meat, wines and opium are seen as enemies to health. Many till date follow this dietary system in the remote valleys of Himalayas. These simple mountain dwellers have much better health than the citizens of global cities and towns. Among the vegetable, asparagus, celery and garlic are particularly avoided. They are considered as medicines and are used when there is disturbance to health. Exposure to sunlight, bathing in normal streams, drinking water, sitting around fireplaces, are also part of daily life to have better psychic energy. It is common knowledge among the people in these valleys, and they distinguish nature with its vegetation, as life givers, preservers, and restorers, and even as destroyers. They tend to use nature products in all the four directions, as per the hour of need. One can easily strengthen the action of a vegetable substance by increasing the metalization of the soil. These dwellers of the mountains know the related technique and cultivate. Much knowledge of health and healing exists in such valleys, which is useful for scientific study and for simple curative techniques. Sometimes we need to be simpler to find solutions to complicated cures. Better health many times goes in association with simple and natural living. May the scientific age lead humanity towards simplicity. Dr. K.

4 Pa ra c e l s u s - T h e S e v e n M e t a l s Sabine Mrosek is naturopath and classic homoeopath. She has been running a practise in Lucerne, Switzerland, for 20 years. 1. Aurum II Sabine Mrosek Gold as a Remedy For Paracelsus gold was a universal remedy, called Panacea by the alchemists, which was derived from Greek: Among all elixirs, gold is the highest and most important for us. Gold can maintain the body unbreakable. Drinkable gold cures all diseases, it renews and restores. Today, gold is used for heart and circulatory diseases, heart cramps, psychosomatic heart problems, fluctuations in blood pressure, depression, states of anxiety, stimulation of vitality and improvement of joy of life, rheumatism, gout, sclerosis, for a too fast aging process and for auto immune diseases. Paracelsus successfully used gold against the following serious diseases: Contractures and Paralysis Paracelsus writes that the contractures (shortening of specific muscles) and paralysis mostly occur through injuries. This contracture comes about through external impacts like beating and falling. (II, 80). This may lead to paralysis: First through a congestion in the flesh, so that alimentary juices may not come through, this may lead to paralysed and dwindling limbs, as we know from tuberculosis. (II, 80). Further causes for contractures are sedimentation of gravel, urinary calculus but also of wine, anger or colic. Through gravel and urinary calculus the paralysis only occurs below the waist with much pain and aching days. At last the patients, before their death, are insensitive, very crooked and paralysed and lay down being unable to move. Sometimes paralysis is invisible occurring only in the stomach with colic, leading to a paralysation of the intestines (II 81). The cause is based on the fact that gravel or sand hurt the life force and the lifeblood in a way that the tissues will no more be provided with nutritive substances and with life energy. When weakness and injury occurs in the arms and legs this may lead to tuberculosis. Through much bile acids similar to vinegar a trembling of the limbs may occur, some parts more, others less, sometimes with contracted limbs, as it is the nature of the bile acids to contract Also anger and envy may lead to crookedness and paralysis in the whole body. There is no stronger contracture. It is an inflammation of the whole body and is spread over all inward and outward limbs. (II, 85). Those contractures caused by wine are most difficult to treat. They occur because wine contains a very fine, sharp spirit. When wine has been drunk, this wine spirit will unite with the lifeblood, as it is attracted by the lifeblood as nourishment because of its similarity When the wine lives in the lifeblood, it will dry it up in the course of time. The more wine has been drunk, 4

5 the more it predominates and consumes the lifeblood. This continues until the lifeblood is exhausted. This way the limb is deprived of its nourishment and flexibility and dies off. Because of dryness the veins will be traced together. Tuberculosis will occur (II, 87). In order to heal these contractures and paralysis, remedies are needed that have a pore opening, and nerve cleaning effect as well as warming impact on the lifeblood. (Aperitiva, Calefacientia, Humectantia), Paracelsus writes. Aurum potabile and Aurum Oeli belong to these remedies. When one limb has already died off (due to sclerosis or thrombosis) revitalizing remedies are necessary. Paracelsus calls these remedies Confortativa, through which the spirit of life is being forced into the limbs in order to exorcise the poisoned spirit of life. Only a spiritual (alcoholic) remedy may pass through the whole body. It is categorized into internal and external remedies. The inner remedies shall purge (clean), warm or cool. Among them we find Aurum potabile, Oleum Auri, Essentia Antimonii, Oleum vitrioli, Aqua Tartari, Quinta Essentia Lapidum, Corallorum etc. These remedies carry a mighty power. Aurum potabile is one of the most important remedies and a Confortativum of highest potency. It renews the life force in the body. Aurum is an excellent remedy against contractures of the limbs, paralysis, rheumatism and gout. Epilepsy Besides oak mistle (Viscus Quercinus), Mandragorae (mandrake), Papaver (opium poppy), Jusquiamus (henbane), Poenia (peony) Paracelsus names the following remedies which cure epilepsy or the falling sickness as he calls it, through their strengthening of nature: Aurum Potabile, Oleum Auri, Quinta Essentia Auri, Mercurius Reverberatus, Materia Perlar, Solutio Corallorum, Magister, Antimonij, Extractio Sulphuris etc. With enthusiasm, he writes: These remedies have a wonderful power. It is hardly believable that there may be such a power in nature that cures such diseases and others, which may not be cured in any other way. Therefore we shall not give up hope or despair in medicine, because the one who created our enemies also created enemies against those enemies and there is no disease at all which is able to directly kill a person or can ultimately kill. For all diseases without restriction may be cured, but there are some we do not yet understand how to cure them. (II, 57) Alchemical Production of Gold According to Paracelsus gold has to be decomposed first, meaning being liberated from its body, purified and potentiated. Only by killing and revitalising gold can become a highly esteemed remedy: Meaning, all corpora, which are ill deposed to you, have to be taken away so that all antidotes dwindle away and you obtain the positive you are looking for. And as there is no piece of gold useful and good, which was not brought into the fire, hence there is no healing essence useful and good without being brought through the fire, because all matters have to go through fire in order to be reborn in another shape in which they are useful to man. For the doctor must not use poisons, but Arcana. (I, 395). The panacea Aurum Potabile will be prepared in an alchemist way from gold metal. Just the smallest traces of gold will have a catalytic effect on the metabolism and will positively impact the nervous system. * * * How to produce Aurum Potabile Aurum potabile will be produced by mixing gold with other remedies and liquids and in this way is made drinkable. Rec.: Aurum foeliatum (gold leaf) or powdered gold Dissolve it to a succus (juice) 1 oz. (30 grams) Aceti dest., Acetum Purum = pure vinegar, as much as is needed. Distil the substances and divide them until no additive may be tasted. Then take from the indicated below Aqua Vitae 5 oz. (150 grams), mix it, allow to digest in a pelican for one month. Aurum potabile and Aurum Oleum have a very good effect on contractures (stiffness) of the limbs. How to produce Aqua Vitae Rec. Vini ardentis, Spiritus ardens = spirits, spirits of wine, ten pounds Rosarum, Mel rosatum = rose honey Melissae, Melissa officinalis Rosmarini, Rosmarinus officinalis Anthos Cheiri = etheric oil of rosemary 5

8 R e m e d i e s f o r H e a l i n g Cases from the Homoeopathic Practice A brother and sister (3 years and 3 months ages) were brought for infantile asthma and chronic recurring bronchitis. R. K. Burman, the brother, was brought on with report of the following symptoms: 1. Dry cough, started within few days after birth, vomiting accompanying. 2. Frequent attacks of cold after which the cough starts. 3. Fever accompanies. 4. Very poor eating due to utter lack of appetite. Vomits when forced to eat. 5. Pain in the navel region. 6. Mentally obstinate, gross, irritable and peevish. 7. Pains in legs. 8. Worms in stool. 9. Always craving for fan without which no sleep. Craving for ice cream that aggravates the sufferings. 10. Cold climate and any atmospheric changes aggravates. 11. Palpable glands at the cervical region. He was brought in acute condition of fever, cold and cough, but he was not taking rest. The condition was aggravated into the evening and the night. Dr. Bhaskar gave him a dose of Pulsatilla 30C on There was relief from everything but dry cough continued. The boy was thin and puny, not putting weight. I gave one dose of Calc. carb. 200C on but for no change. On the parents reported involuntary urination even while talking, appetite totally lost. Taking these two guidelines along with others as totality, I prescribed a dose of Causticum 200C. The boy improved within a week until Appetite improved, involuntary urination stopped, cough reduced, but continued. On I repeated Causticum 200C since the cough began to increase. The boy improved. I repeated Causticum 200C on and Besides I gave Calc. phos. 6D daily doses. The boy improved, weight increased, no more fever, cough or cold. Dysentery and mucus with fever and colic appeared on Dr. G. S. R. Murthy gave Aloe 30C and repeated on and No fever but mucus continued. On Causticum 200C was repeated, when mucus stopped. Causticum 200C was repeated on and Everything cured except colds. Glands on the neck subsided. He could enjoy ice cream daily without any consequences. Treatment stopped and on (after 10 months) there was a little recurrence of dry cough with a little strabismus. Causticum 200C and 1M caused no relief. Indicated remedies failed to act made me give one dose of Sulphur 200C on Gradually the boy improved and now he requires no more medicine. The symptoms of Ratna Burman (his sister) were as follows: 8

9 1. Severe attacks of cold and cough, worse in winter, cloudy atmosphere and during any change in climate. 2. Worms in stool with mucus. 3. White spots on legs. 4. Rattling in chest (phlegm) relieved after vomiting. 5. Appetite dull. On Dr. O. Ramachandrarao administered Pulsatilla 6D one dose. Only fever subsided. On I administered one dose of Psorinum 200C and waited for two weeks. The child improved very much. The spots on legs increased. I repeated Psorinum 200C on Much relief. The child could stand exposure to foggy weather in January. The spots continued. Psorinum 200C repeated on The spots also faded away and she is now free from any complaint. Dr. E. V. M. Acharya, DHMS Sore Feet A gentleman, whom had to be helped out of his carriage, came to my house; he managed to drag himself along with the help of two sticks. He told me this: Six years ago, I was suddenly seized with a sharp pain in my right foot. The knee was somewhat swollen, the pain increased from week to week in proportion as the strength of the leg decreased, and I felt as if the whole leg was dying away. When awakening in the night, I happened to touch it with the left leg, it was as cold as ice, it seemed to be dead. I consulted a celebrated physician in the capital, who prescribed various remedies: poisonous and not poisonous. I went to other doctors, and one of them applied electricity seventy times, all in vain. The right arm and the whole of the right side have also become weak, and I have now the sad prospect of getting paralyzed on that side. I am only twenty-nine years of age. What may be the matter here? Simply this: The blood stagnated in the thigh and knee, the regular circulation became disturbed. The leg receiving no longer the necessary supply of blood, at last hardly any, and consequently no warmth, the whole limb must naturally fall into a state of decay. In time more disorders occurred in the circulation and the evil increased. In treating this case, the chief object must be to restore a normal circulation, to supply all parts of the body with proper nourishment and warmth, and so invigorate the whole system in an equal manner. To this end the following applications were resorted to: 1. Every day two upper-showers and two thigh-gushes. 2. Twice a day walking bare-foot in wet grass, as it was spring. 3. Every day a cup of tea from juniper berries and wormwood, in three portions (morning, noon and evening). The effect was really striking: after sixteen days, all pain was gone, the circulation restored; and the gentleman, completely cured, walked about in jubilation. Whilst under treatment, he particularly pointed out how, after the second thigh-gush, the blood had rushed down from above and rapidly warmed the diseased leg. The thigh-gushes effected a quickened flow of the blood and removed the stagnation. The same result was obtained by the upper-showers in the upper body, where the arm had also been weakened, because not sufficiently nourished, whilst the other parts of the body had preserved their healthy condition. Finally, the tea promoting digestion, the whole body became rapidly invigorated. Sebastian Kneipp ( ), from: Thus Shalt Thou Live Upper-shower 9

10 Remedies for Healing Hernia/Rupture A hernia is a soft bulge of the peritoneum which occurs when the internal organs bulge through a weakened section in the abdominal wall. The space formed by the peritoneum can contain parts of the intestines, of the great omentum, the outer lining of the small intestines, or it can be filled with liquids. Rarely, the intestines are incarcerated in a pocket of the peritoneum in the abdominal cavity. Approximately four percent of the population suffer from hernia once in their life. In infants, hernias are found almost exclusively among boys, and even later it is mostly a male phenomenon. Depending on the location, there are different types of hernias: e. g. inguinal hernia, which is the most frequent; umbilical hernia; diaphragmatic hernia etc. Clinical Picture Drawing pains may occur at the opening, particularly during strenuous exercises, coughing or defecation, even before the protrusion becomes visible. Outwardly, a hernia is visible as a protrusion of the abdominal wall ( lump of tissue ). It can either be there all the time, or bulge only while standing or put under strain. In most cases, the protrusion disappears when lying down or pushing it back with the hand. Complications Incarceration is the most important and dangerous form of complication. It always occurs suddenly. The protruding sac of tissue can no longer be pushed back into the abdominal cavity. It is extremely painful, accompanied by pasty swellings and inflammation. When the intestinal loops are bulged and incarcerated in the protrusion, it leads to an ileus. In that case the patient has to undergo an emergency operation, because the incarcerated tissue can die due to lack of blood circulation.

11 PARACELSUS recommends the following remedies to cure hernias: Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) Betonica (= Stachys officinalis = Betony, Bishopswort) There is no other herb (except 3, which are used in wound solutions), which has a more strengthening effect in children than Betonica, cooked in wine and applied warm on the hernia. Saniculus albus (= Sanicula europaea = Poolroot, Self-Heal, Sanicle) should be added to Betonica. These two herbs should be pounded together and applied. Cooking and drinking a potion also helps to heal ruptures (rupturam), as long as the iron bands have been put on before. III, 551 Porrum (= Allium porrum = Leek, porree): The juice of leek and the dried roots of Consolida (= Symphytum officinale = Comfrey, Knitbone) have to be pounded and mixed. The mixture should be applied on the hernia, which will be healed. III, 554 References: Paracelsus: Sämtliche Werke, vol. III.

12 Ulrich Arndt is a journalist and book author, as well as a member of the advisory council of the European Commission of Interdisciplinary Sciences. He studied German literature, dramatics and political sciences and worked several years in the editorial team of the magazine esotera. He attended several trainings in energetic therapies. Today, he is working as an independent author. T h e P h i l o s o p h e r s M a g n e t Alchemic Transmutation of Antimony Ulrich Arndt By alchemical transformation, i. e. transmutation of the element antimony, a significant remedy emerges. In today s opinion this process seems impossible but has now been comprehended at the University of Munich. No one believed it, but the alchemists were right! Of all minerals antimony contains the highest and strongest Arcanum (remedy). It purifies itself and at the same time everything else that is impure. Furthermore, if there is nothing healthy at all inside the body, it transforms the impure body into a pure one which was proved in cases of leprosy. Thus Paracelsus praises the extraordinary healing power of antimony (Sämtliche Werke, vol. III, Aschner-edition, p. 151). Reports such as these were the impetus to investigate the preparation of alchemical remedies such as antimony in the Medical Faculty of the University in Munich. Whether antimony as metal is actually transformed in the alchemic laboratory process was investigated within the framework of a PhD. In today s medicine, namely due to its toxicity, antimony is mostly used in very little doses as an emetic only. No one ever thought in the slightest that a real transformation of the elements would be possible. The True Reason for Producing Gold Alchemy is imprinted into the memory of mankind as an art of making gold. In dictionaries the unavailing endeavours of the mediaeval quackery is of course emphasized. A socalled transmutation is meant, thus the transformation of a chemical stable element into another element (instable, radioactive elements degrade by themselves in the course of centuries or millenniums and therefore transform themselves into another element). In modern physics such processes of artificial transformation with the help of particle accelerators are only possible with enormous amounts of energy and is only possible with a few select atoms. In Alchemy however, the transformation for instance of lead or mercury into gold is considered possible and is actually proof of the supreme art of an alchemist. Whoever succeeds, is also able to produce the highest remedy of Alchemy, the philosopher s stone. Thus this metal-test is only admittedly the most spectacular proof that an alchemist truly has the highest arcanum at his disposal, and that he gives his patients no other less laborious and therefore less expensive elixir instead. However, the transformation of gold was not examined at the University of Munich. With the processing of antimony, according to the alchemic laboratory instructions, the medics unwillingly produced evidence that in principle such a transformation of alchemy is possible. The disappearance of antimony after extraction is not clarified, Dr. David Schein sum- 12

13 marizes as the result of his PhD. With this objective observation he skilfully avoids any hints of the absolute amazement of the scientists facing this process: this namely means no less than the caving-in of today s scientific knowledge of the unalterable chemical elements. Furthermore: In the spectacular process carried out, according to ancient alchemic laboratory-instructions by Dr. Schein, the poisonous antimony ore, similar to arsenic, becomes a completely non poisonous remedy. With this the ancient recipes and reports on healing by Paracelsus and Basilius Valentinus, were confirmed in an impressing way. They very much differed from the healing medication of antimony in the later centuries. Due to a good reputation, which Paracelsus enjoyed, the highly praised antimonyremedies were distributed fast. The knowledge for the correct alchemic processing, however, was more and more forgotten and the quacks simply sold toxic antimony-water. Already in the middle of the 17th century, this incorrect use of remedies leads to the fact that the graduates of medical universities had to swear never to use antimony- or mercury-compounds anymore. Although in 1666 this ban was abrogated again and it was only recommended to keep the dose as low as possible. Only very few still knew how to process the completely nontoxic antimony-remedies. A Rediscovered Healing Formula In 1978 within the framework of his PhD in the field of medicine, David Schein wanted to examine the truth content of ancient instructions for the production of alchemic remedies from antimony in a practical way. Has an ancient, highly effective healing substance been forgotten? he asked himself in face of the many ancient medical texts which reported about very astonishing healing successes due to a spit-glass, as antimony was also called because of its outer form at that time. As a matter of fact, the application of antimony for healing has been a tradition for thousands of years. Back in the 16th century B.C. in Eber s Papyrus was stated that antimony-compounds could be used successfully for eye diseases. In the first century A.C. the Roman doctors also used it against wild flesh and ulcers; and in the Middle Ages it was additionally recommended to treat haemorrhoids, wounds, fistulas, skin cancer, leprosy and other sufferings. For the first time, Paracelsus described the inner application of antimony which in an alchemical way, however, should be freed of its toxicity before that. He described his antimonyprocessing altogether as a universal remedy for purification of the body of toxins : In the same way and form that antimony finishes in gold (in the sense of cleansing), it will perfect the body as well. It namely contains the Essentia, which does not allow anything impure to come together with the pure (vol. III, p. 151). Paracelsus refers here to a very astonishing characteristic of antimony: if one adds it to a blend of melted metals, it will associate with the containing gold and part from the impure metals. Because antimony seemingly eats and extracts the precious metals, it was also called wolf of metals or the magnet of the wise in earlier times. This apparent magical force of antimony has a similar effect in man as well. According to the alchemical processing it also separates the pure from the impure and leads the ill (in the sense of the deposited toxins, metabolic waste products and disease-causing agents) out of the body. According to Paracelsus, antimonium oil, which he administers together with the quintessence of balm (melissa), is the most intensive:... likewise Antimonium sublimed, calcinated, reverberated and incorporated in oil, then see what kind of enormous use, great power, great virtue, quick effect it reveals and proves (vol. III, p. 243). The antimonium-oil shall be prescribed in Quinta Essentia Melissae (vol. III, p. 151). In his PhD, David Schein worked according to a formula of the alchemist Basilius Valentinus who became well known by his script, Triumph-Waggon of Antimony, published in The instructions at first sound very simple if rather laborious: at first antimony-ore, which consists of a mixture of different antimony-oxides and especially of sulphides, is slowly, gently heated until there are no more fumes (because of the highly-toxic vapours amateur alchemists should not reproduce this process without a vacuum pump!). Then everything is melted to glass. This glass can adopt any colour of the spectrum and Basilius Valentinus and Paracelsus rated this as a sign of antimony containing all qualities. Depending on the processing, antimony could also be used as a kind of universal remedy for all diseases. In fact, Dr. Schein suc- 13

14 The Philosopher s Magnet ceeded to produce antimony-glass in the colours red, yellow, orange, green, brown, grey, white and black in varying the parts of the different antimony-oxides and -sulphides. Valentinus recommends to use only golden coloured antimony-glass for further processing. After cooling one should grind the antimony-glass very fine. Concentrated vinegar is then poured onto the powder for several times until it is coloured red-yellow. Then the powder is doused with distilled rainwater up to 144 times and by distillation it is separated from it again. Then it has according to Valentinus strangely a sweet taste which was also the case in Dr. Schein s processing. Finally the powder is steeped in alcohol. First the liquid will turn black and on its surface all colours of the rainbow shimmer anew, and then it will turn red. The so emerged liquid is an antimony-tincture which is now suitable for inner application. Unknown Organic Compounds As simple as the description of the production which takes several weeks sounds, it nonetheless holds countless dangers. Although Basilius Valentinus was very precise in comparison to other alchemical scripts, today the ancient language and symbolic codings are enough hindrance for a simple realisation. On top of that, according to today s level of knowledge in chemistry, certain production steps are simply considered impracticable and unreasonable. For instance the described reaction by Basilius Valentinus about antimonycompounds with acetic acid and alcohol is impossible in today s opinion. Therefore, Dr. Schein was prepared for unpleasant surprises and it was a real sensation to him, that all of these impossible chemical reactions actually took place in the way they were described. He had only to follow the ancient instructions precisely again proof for the very precise observation of nature by the alchemists and their highly amazing knowledge. Dr. Schein suspects that by heating up and melting of antimony to glass, the physical and spatial structure, thus the arrangement of molecules of this toxic metal, changes and is the reason for the unknown chemical reactions which become possible. By this it can adopt new characteristics. At the same time, however, he admits: There is a phenomenon whose essence cannot be understood with the help of today s knowledge. Finally the medico could confirm the non-toxicity of the emanated compounds, for the antimony-tinctures are chemically understood neither as an antimony-compound nor do they contain dissolved antimony. Instead they are complex organic compounds, which have not yet been examined in detail. They probably emerge from unknown reactions of vinegar and alcohol, which both are of organic origin, with antimony as a kind of catalyst. In this respect it is amazing that in the course of the alchemic processing the content of toxic antimony in the solid remaining substance is reduced to about 60 %, and this missing amount cannot be found in the extracted tinctures. Thus the solid substances contain 31 % pure antimony before the extraction in alcohol, and 14

15 after the processing it contains only 11 %. But the extract itself does not at all contain anymore pure antimony. Therefore a transmutation of the element had to take place. The alchemists were very conscious about this transformation: Thus principally antimony is nothing but a pure poison, and not a minor, little and low poison, but a very high noble poison, through and through, and even the greatest poison by which one can execute man and animal to death, warns Basilius Valentinus in his Triumph-Waggon of antimony and continues: After the processing of spit-glass one cannot find anymore poison, for antimony has to be completely transformed by the spagyric art (the alchemical laboratory-processing) and a remedy has to emerge from the poison. The Healing Power of Antimony Unfortunately, David Schein could not additionally investigate the real healing effect of antimony essences within the scope of his doctorate. His summary is as follows, It can be shown that all examined instructions are correct in the Triumph-Waggon of Antimony... Although the highly praised healing effect of the therein described compounds have not been taken seriously and have been pronounced toxic, they should now be taken into consideration with these new aspects. It should be further investigated as to their value in today s medicine. What Dr. Schein apparently did not know: Even today such tinctures from antimony are produced as a remedy. Already in the beginning of the 20th century Baron Alexander von Bernus, The imperial orb symbolizes antimony, it is held by Saturn which stands for the grounding forces of the metals (from Isaak Hollandus: Hand des Philosophen (Philosopher s Hand)). the most renowned alchemist and founder of the famous Laboratorium Soluna in Donauwörth (Germany) rediscovered the ancient alchemical antimony-recipes of Basilius Valentinus for the therapy. And about two years ago, Achim Stockardt, the re-discoverer of the Paracelsus-Gold-Essence Aurum Potabile, also succeeded in reproducing these high remedies from antimony according to ancient formulas of Paracelsus: the antimony-oil combined with the quintessence of balm as Oleum antimonii. According to the experience of doctors and curative practitioners, antimony relieves joint pain and myalgia 15

16 Antimony as the wolf of metals : Antimony separates gold from impure metals, it is symbolized by the wolf eating the sick, old king. With a later separation by the melting of gold and antimony, pure gold is gained, which is symbolized in the background by the burned wolf and the reborn king emerging from the fire (from Michael Maier: Atlanta fugiens ). and other sort of pains, which can be associated with deposits. Besides this, it effects both sicknesses provoked by bacteria as well as viral diseases. It is, however, not clear if this is due to direct anti-effects such as with antibiotics, or if the body s own immune response is responsible, admits Anna Röcker, a curative practitioner from Munich. Obviously Basilius Valentinus had an antibacterial application in mind, if he recommends the intake for a better wound healing, so that the inner source of the wound s secretion is dried up. Anna Röcker also successfully used antimony compounds for fungal infections like intestinal mycosis, Candida Albicans. With its Antimony the philosopher s magnet could actually help to pull out all of the impure such as bacteria, viruses and fungi as well as certain metabolic deposits, just as Paracelsus and Basilius Valentinus have described. Regarded energetically, Antimony is alchemically considered the remedy for grounding par excellence. Thus it is capable of re-integrating body, spirit and soul into the rhythmic cycles on earth. The traditional alchemic symbol for antimony, the imperial orb with the cross above the globe, depicts the universal integrating effect. It represents the power of the four elements related to the cyclic courses of nature. The rhythms within man also belong to it like the sleepwake rhythm. That is why antimony is for instance used for sleep disorders, which may also be related to congestion. Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Anthroposophy, stated that the reason for the great universal healing power of antimony lies within a close relationship: Comparable to the human being, who stands between the animal kingdom and angels, antimony is neither mineral nor ore, neither crystal nor metal both are beings betwixt, he said. Therefore Steiner thought: Man is actually antimony. References: Arndt, Ulrich: Schätze der Alchemie: Edelstein-Essenzen, and Schätze der Alchemie: Metall-Essenzen.

17 H o m o e o p a t h y : C a l c i u m c a r b o n i c u m Dr. Ekkirala Krishnamacharya was a spiritual teacher, healer, homoeopath and author of a number of books. He gave a synthetic understanding of the scriptures and their usefulness in daily life. It was his chosen mission to contribute to the growing awareness and spiritual fusion between East and West. Dr. Ekkirala Krishnamacharya Under this series it is proposed to publish the Materia medica of some polychrests and other important drugs. To have a better idea of the drug picture, generalities, and mental symptoms from Kent s Materia Medica, followed by the characteristic symptoms of Allen s Keynotes, have been arranged in an order. The particulars, which mostly confuse the students, have been omitted. We feel that this method of study puts the student to the correct path of understanding the drugs and understanding the drug picture itself. Under the sub-heading Special Study most symptoms, which have been neglected or not brought out clearly in any text, are added for the benefit of all. These are collected from the lectures of Dr. E. Krishnamacharya. Generals: Calcium carbonicum is a very deep acting and long lasting homoeopathic remedy. It works through months and years and changes the Calcarea constitution of the patient. Calcium is a mineral which is needed for bone growth, because we find 99 % of this mineral in the skeleton. Through a healthy and well-balanced nutri- tion, the body is supplied with Calcium. Specially for children the intake of Calcium is important for healthy bone growth and strong teeth. Often it is innate to the Calcarea patients that they are not able to assimilate the Calcium from the natural food and make use of it. Such patients are given Calcium preparations and this is exactly the wrong way of doing. It is very important to administer a remedy to the body which enables it to absorb Calcium. Potentised Calcium carbonicum is such a remedy. A single dose of higher potentised Calcium carbonicum can cause right digestion of the food and absorption of Calcium from the food by the child. From one moment to the next the bones start growing again, they become stable and the teeth are developing. The treatment with Calcium is based upon rousing the capacity to absorb Calcium. This cannot happen by supplying Calcium in large quantities. Under no circumstances the crude substance should be given, which has already highly affected the development of the child. This is very important. The typical Calcarea patients are flabby, fatty, and plumpy. Their complexion is waxy and chlorotic. Calcarea patients are typical in appearance with large heads, big bellies, emaciated lower limbs. All tissues, muscles and blood vessels (especially veins) are very limp. Frequently this results in varicose veins and haemorrhoids with smarting and burning. The Calcarea patients are fatty without any physical strength. They are with dropsical tendencies and have enlarged lymph nodes. Their joints are swollen 17

18 Calcium carbonicum with pain and inflammation. They are rheumatic and gouty. Frequently the patients have hip joint suffering. All glands are affected in the body. Inflammation and induration of glands. Tubercular glands. The ulcers also indurate. This drug can stop the growth of malignant ulcers. Calcarea can cure tumours like fatty, cystic and polypi in nose, ears, vagina, bladder and in other places. It can also cure deep abscesses in muscles, thigh and abdomen. It can also cure the pyemic state of the abscess which is most insurmountable to allopathy. Exostoses, caused due to irregular distribution of lime are curable by Calc. carb. Bones malformation and softening, which leads to curvatures of bones. With this condition late walking develops due to the weakness of bones and muscles of legs. Calcarea patient is sensitive to cold winds, i.e. he is a chilly patient. Sensitive to stormy and cold weather. He suffers more in cold season that sets after warm season. Congestion to head develops and it is hot, yet the patient feels cold subjectively. The whole body is cold, specially the feet so that he feels the need to be wrapped warmly. At various places of the body he is sweating profusely. During sleep his pillow is wetted with this sweat. A typical Calcarea symptom is the sweat that is breaking on his head and face at the least exertion, even if the other parts of the body are not sweating. As soon as the patient does not sweat any more he immediately feels sick, either with head-ache or with a chill. A Calcarea patient is generally tired, exhausted and weak. Every exertion makes him breathless with flushing of face. He is so exhausted that he cannot climb stairs without breathing hard and gasping for breath. He gets headache or fever after every exertion. The heart, muscles and the whole body are weak. His muscles are so weak that they cannot stand prolonged effort. His circulation is also weak and every excitement makes his heart palpitate. Dread and anxiety, restlessness and palpitation, despair and hopelessness are typical Calcarea symptoms. Mentals: Mind is also weak as the body. He cannot stand prolonged mental exertion. After mental and physical exertion he becomes tired with profuse sweats, excitability and irritability. Emotionally easily disturbed. The complaints caused after emotional disturbance, worry and excitement last for days and weeks. Inability to apply mind. He is conscious of his inability of the mind. With this he thinks that he is going to become an insane person. This is the peculiarity of this drug. He also has fixed idea that he is insane and fears that people observe it. Day and night he is awake with the ideas that people are suspicious at him and looking at him suspiciously. With this idea he looks at them suspiciously. He is troubled even by trifles and cannot leave these ideas. Brooding over trifles. Passive mental state. The crowding of thoughts disturbs his sleep. Talking to himself. He talks with conceivable persons. He does all strange things. He picks his fingers. On closing the eyes some faces appear to him. 18

19 Feels that some one is walking besides him. Hallucinations of horrible visions. He sees dogs that are coming around him and fights with them. This much of stress on the mental plane causes in a hysterical woman, a tendency to run and scream. She frequently screams loudly, then becomes quiet and doesn t talk with any one. These hysterical manifestations are mainly caused due to the death of her child, or husband or any near and dear. This condition in men leads to many types of aberrations. A businessman stops his business and sits in house lazily. Though he is an active person by birth, he turns lazy during this spell of insanity. Calcarea children take all things very seriously and often they are precocious. Small children like to talk about spiritual things and the heaven and they want to die early to go to heaven. Older patients lose the joy of life. The Calcarea patient is full of fear, gloomy, tired of life, sad, desperate and hopeless. Always fears that some evil is going to happen. Though he wants to die early he has a fear of death, fears that he will be affected by T. B. No sound sleep due to horrible dreams starting with noises. paper pieces, or pressing the chalk pieces etc. Trifles make him sleepless for days and nights. Always wants to be calm and alone and does not want to be talked to, but thoughts crowd in his mind. Mind is calm in company but restless when alone. Nights he plans many things, which he can t put into practice. Monotony. Though he is busy mentally, lazy physically. He either rapidly emaciates or becomes obese. Upper abdomen heavy. Exhaustion with trembling of limbs. In children milk is vomited and it is sour. Peculiar craving for raw rice, chalk, clay etc. When the above given mentals and generals are suited the drugs cures any particular symptoms. So we are not dealing with the particulars here. Special Study: Confusion of mind by continuous reading. With this confusion he worries about other subjects while reading one subject. He can hardly read few pages. Comprehension dull and he reads many times the same lessons. Very anxious that his mind may fail. He is poor at any figure-work. Wrong notions about his own mind. Busy in doing silly things like chewing 19

20 Ay u r v e d i c P r i n c i p l e s VII Dr. K. Parvathi Kumar Massage II How to Store Oils for Massage As oils have the ability to absorb and store the effects of light frequencies when stored in bottles of different colours, mixtures may be stored in tinted bottles in direct sunlight for 40 days to produce special effects. Briefly, an oil kept in a red bottle becomes hotter in nature while the same oil stored in a blue bottle becomes cooler. Where extra heat is required, keep the mixtures 1, 3, and 4* in a red bottle (or mix it from the oil which has been kept in a red bottle). The cooling effect of the blue light suits itself to mixtures 2 and 9*. One should make a practice especially of keeping mustard oil in a blue bottle in the house pharmacy, for this oil (kept refrigerated) is the best first-aid treatment for burns. Hail water, kept frozen, is also a good burn remedy. Head Massage Oil applied to the head is absorbed into the roots of the hair, which are in turn connected with the nerves fibres leading directly to the brain. Oil strengthens the hair and reduces dryness which is responsible for brittle hair and many scalp disorders. Third, by relaxing the muscles and the nerves, fatigue is eliminated from the system. Massage of the forehead also calms the system and creates good feelings in the brain, making one feel light and high. Massage of the temples improves the eyesight and creates a centred state of awareness. Foot Massage A simple mustard oil massage of the feet nightly, before retiring, cures numbing of the feet, prevents cold weather cracking and peeling of the skin, reduces or eliminates infections caused by fungi and bacteria, reduces agitation and promotes sound sleep. According to the ancient Indian shastras (scriptures), Disease does not go near one who massages his feet before sleep, just as snakes do not approach the eagles. Simply follow the natural contours of the foot. The Cleansing Massage Indian folk healers evolved a practice which combines the best elements of cleansing the body with all the benefits of daily massage. This is the process known as Ubtan. One begins by making a paste of one cup of chickpea or whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup of mustard oil and a teaspoon of turmeric. After thoroughly blending, add enough water to make a paste the consistency of light cake butter. The paste of Ubtan should be applied over the whole body, including the hair. When the mixture begins to dry and crack, it should be removed by rubbing, following the same principle of movement outlined earlier*. According to the Indian folk medicine, application of Ubtan cures disorders caused by imbalance of mucous, in- 20
