Natural plant-based remedies for the New Era
By Elisabeth Bindschaedler
Spagyrics is the application of alchemical methods to the production of natural plant-based remedies. It merges together herbal medicine, homeopathy, Bach Flowers essences, Schüssler tissue salts and trace elements in a holistic, therapeutic system. Spagyric essences rebalance the three dimensions of the human being – physical, emotional and spiritual – to encourage the natural healing processes.
The essences contain the whole curative power of the plant, magnified by the preparation process. The resulting ‘spagyric essence’ rebalances the human being in an energetic approach. It does not work as a chemical remedy, but provides a message or information, giving the body the means to restore equilibrium, a little bit like homeopathic remedies, although these are not prepared in the same way.
The specific manufacturing process of spagyric essences eliminates the toxic chemical molecules that limit the use of certain plants in herbal medicine. The resulting spagyric essence is therefore non-toxic and devoid of side effects; consequently it does not interfere with any other treatments that the patient could be undergoing simultaneously.
They offer an alternative when allopathic medicine has not solved the problem satisfactorily or when the patient chooses another approach such as natural and gentle solutions. They can not only be used internally as drops, but may also be incorporated in an ointment to complement the treatment by an external application. Spagyric essences bring relief to almost all diseases, whether acute or chronic and are also perfectly suited for prophylactic use.
Although based on ancient alchemical concepts, the essences are produced in licensed laboratories in Germany and Switzerland to the same standards as modern drugs. Independent pharmacists supervise the production, and each spagyric essence has a Certificate of Analysis in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
Even a lengthy use does not yield adverse effects. The spagyric essences can be used concomitantly with any other treatment as there is no risk of interaction or interference. They can be given to everybody, from infants to the elderly and also to pregnant or lactating women.
Patients often come to a therapist looking for the relief of physical symptoms, and spagyric essences are ideally suited for this approach, but their great strength lies elsewhere. Energy therapy practitioners know well that the symptom is only the tip of the iceberg and that behind it lurks emotional sufferings. While allopathic doctors, in general, focus on reducing the symptoms, natural practitioners help their patients to understand why the disease happened, in order to ensure healing. According to the concept of holistic medicine, healing the mind and body always goes hand in hand. Spagyric essences help the patients to evolve mentally, to understand the real cause of their disease.
Paracelsus (Alchemical genius of the Middle Ages) focused on stimulating the patient’s self-healing forces. Complete healing of a disease does not come by only alleviating symptoms; it must also cure the emotions and fears that may have triggered it. In our modern world, where we spend so many hours ‘communicating’ with each other through cell phones, pagers and computers, we are more out of touch with our own bodies and spirits than ever before. We tend to treat physical pain or ailments with synthetic drugs and physical aids, but ignore the ‘invisible’ causes behind them.
Spagyric essences successfully treat the psychic troubles, such as anguish or depression, that sometimes accompany other illnesses. They are very useful in decreasing the impact of a shock (e.g. bad news, broken heart or bereavement), and help the patient to handle the situation better. They accompany a personal development approach, can strengthen self-confidence, and encourage the patient to adopt a positive mental attitude despite the vicissitudes of life.
Spagyric essences are useful in countless circumstances. There is no need to be physically ill to benefit from them. They can accompany human beings in all stages of life. Their approach to disease and health is radically different from therapies aimed only at the alleviation of the symptoms. The goal in a Spagyric Treatment is to guide the patient in their search for the cause of their troubles, to uncover the factor(s) that triggered the problem, in order to ensure healing.
Seminars on Phylak-Spagyric essences in the UK and on the continent have been ongoing since 1999. They are designed for all healthcare professionals or non-professional participants interested in complementary practice, energy medicine and medicinal plants. In 2010, seminars are scheduled for Ireland too. For further information, visit www.spagyricmedicine.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org
