A Swiss physician known as Paracelsus, coined the term “spagyric” in the early-16th century. It was commonly interchanged with “alchemy,” but, in recent years, has been adopted by the advanced nutraceutical manufacturers.
Spagyric processing, like herbology itself, takes a holistic approach by utilizing every part of the plant; which should be picked according to its moon cycle. Spagyric products are created using a specialized form of processing that involves three steps: separation, purification/extraction, and reunification.
During separation, pure organic raw plant materials are separated (divided) into their constituent parts: water, pulp, and essential oil. Each component goes through a purification/extraction process to release the principles of the plant including the oil-soluble, the water-soluble, the non-mineral, and the mineral. This process allows the body to take the fullest possible advantage of the beneficial properties of the whole herb. The final step in the spagyric processing method is to reunite all the purified and concentrated plant constituents back into one substance.
Spagyrically-processed remedies are highly concentrated, purified and energized, and easy to absorb, even for a compromised digestive system, making them ideal for addressing contributing factors in a timely, gentle, and highly effective manner.
Benefits of spagyric processing
- Ensures maximum extraction of raw material.
- Includes the vital components of plant minerals found mainly in the pulp and only available by this means of extraction.
- Creates a product that is more concentrated and bioavailable than the original raw material, while leaving the original trace minerals and elements from the water-soluble, oil-soluble, non-mineral, and mineral components intact.
Spagyric processing is an intricate science that is labor intensive, time-consuming, and highly specific. A single batch of a spagyrically-processed remedy can take 30 days to 6 months to produce. Spagyric products can be used for many ailments, from physical illness to emotional and mental imbalance to spiritual or karmic imbalance.
