Spagyric

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

Spagyric aims to develop a healing method that perceives the human being holistically and triggers a transformation. With the help of spagyric essences, comprehensive active and self-healing powers are to be released in body, mind and soul.
To obtain these remedies, the plant is broken down into individual aspects. Spirit” refers to the alcoholic plant extract, “soul” to the essential oil obtained by distillation, and “body” to the dried plant components which are later ashed.

The spagyric production process is very elaborate and can 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 brought together again, “something quite magical happens” and the spirit of the plant comes back.

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

Yams

The yam is a perennial, herbaceous plant that is at home in the tropics and winds its way upwards as it grows. Above all, its tuber is valued as a food as well as a remedy and tonic.

The yam has a high content of provitamin A and potassium as well as sulphur, zinc, manganese and copper.

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

About the skin

The skin is our largest organ. It effectively supports our body in excretion. 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, such as the trunk or arms, the epidermis is not particularly thick and therefore the capillaries of the blood circulation lie here just under the horny layer. Active substances can be absorbed through the skin cells (transcellular) or between them (intracellular). In the body, they are then transported via the bloodstream to the right receptors where they can exert their effect.
The absorption of hormones via the skin is a proven method in addition to oral intake.
