Interesting and common questions


Spagyric is considered a special form of herbal medicine. In Europe it goes back to the doctor, theologian, astrologer and alchemist, Paracelsus, who lived in the Middle Ages.

Spagyric aims to develop a healing method that perceives the person holistically and triggers a transformation. By means of spagyric essences, comprehensive active and self-healing powers are to be released in body, mind and soul.
For the extraction of these remedies, the plant is broken down into individual aspects. With the “spirit” is the alcoholic plant extract, with “soul”, the essential oil obtained by distillation, and with “body” the dried plant components, which are later ashed.

The spagyric manufacturing process is very elaborate and may include a drying and fermentation process as well as distillation and calcination of the various plant parts.

It is said that when the different substances are reunited, “something quite magical happens” and the spirit of the plant comes back.

Generally, in phytotherapy and especially in spagyric, it is assumed that each plant has a certain healing ability inherent in it and it resonates with its own vibration profile to the human cells. This impulse can activate the self-healing powers and set the transformation in motion.

Theophrastus Bombast von Hohenheim


The yam is a perennial, herbaceous plant that is at home in the tropics and winds its way upwards as it grows. Its tuber, in particular, is prized as a food as well as a healing and tonic agent.

Yams have high levels of provitamin A and potassium, as well as sulfur, zinc, manganese and copper.

The special secret of the wild yam, however, is its high content of the plant hormone diosgenin, which is naturally found in it. Diosgenin is a plant hormone and is similar to our human corpus luteum hormone, progesterone.


Absorption of the active substance via the skin

The skin is our largest organ. It effectively supports our body in excreting. And of course, we also absorb a wide variety of stimuli and substances through it. What is applied to the skin can be absorbed. In some areas like the trunk or the arms the epidermis is not very thick and therefore the capillaries of the blood circulation are located just below the horny layer. The absorption of active agents can take place through the skin cells (transcellular) or between (intracellular) them. In the body, they are then transported via the bloodstream to the right receptors and can develop their effect there.
The absorption of hormones through the skin is a proven method in addition to oral intake.
