PEKANA Spagyrics according to Dr. Beyersdorff

The term spagyrics is a neologism from the Greek term "spao = separate" and "ageiro = unite". Based on the requirements posed by Paracelsus the manufacture of spagyric remedies is traditionally done in four steps. In PEKANA Spagyrics according to Dr. Beyersdorff these four steps have been modernized:

1.    Separation (separatio)
2.    Purification (purificatio)
3.    Incineration (calcificatio)
4.    Unification (conjugatio)

The objective of spagyrics is to relate the principle of efficacy in a medicinal plant from its structural substance or, as Paracelsus put it: "what we see is not the medicine but the body in which it is cought, because arcana, the healing powers of the elements, are invisible." This context allows us to understand the production mode of spagyric remedies: "Solve et coagula et habebis magisterium." Separate and unite and you will gain the hidden healing power.

Separation (separatio) - Step 1 of PEKANA Spagyrics


In the beginnings of spagyrics medicinal plants were subjected to putrefacation (putrefactio) to break them down. By decomposing the intact plant body the healing powers of the plant are supposed to be made available. It leads to a separation (separatio) of the fine acting information derived from the rough plant structure. Paracelsus describes it as follows: 

    "That is why it is alchemy, which is called spagyria which teaches us to separate wrong from fair."

In PEKANA Spagyrics according to Dr. Beyersdorff the macerated plants are fermented in a first step with water, sugar (saccharose), and brewer's yeast (saccharomyces cerevisiae). The procedure allows a gentle preparation of the medicinal plants. From the spagyric view the alcohol generated in the fermentation process acts as carrier of the vital energy (mercury).

Purification (purificatio) - Step 2 of PEKANA Spagyrics


Following putrefacation a steam destillation was performed in traditional spagyrics. In the spagyric process this step symbolizes purification (purificatio). From the historic perspective destillation surely has two reasons. On the one hand people hoped for a spiritualization of the remedy. On the other hand it was simply hygienic reasons, which required to purify the end product of putrefaction. In this way it was possible to gain the "spiritualized" fermentation alcohol and other volatile plant components such as essential oils in their pure form.

Stimulated by his intensive research Dr. Beyersdorff chose to modernize this step as well. In PEKANA Spagyrics the end product of the yeast-controlled fermentation is subjected to filtration after the plant components have been pressed off. In this procedure Dr. Beyersdorff consciously omitted distillation. Thus the plant specific ingredients can be preserved. The mother tincture gained in this way reflects the "individual character" of the medicinal plant as unadulterated as possible and so, from the spagyric view, owns a particularly strong degree of specific efficacy (sulphur).  

Incineration (calcificatio) - Step 3 of PEKANA Spagyrics


In spagyric tradition the distillation residue was incinerated. The remaining ashes include an accumulation of minerals specific to each plant. These minerals represent a structural part of every medicinal plant (sal). According to the holistic principle of spagyrics gaining the substantial components of each plant was also an important module on the way to a complete remedy. Paracelsus phrased it as follows:

    "In order to apply the miraculous healing powers of the plants the remedy itself has to be whole."

Dr. Beyersdorff also further developed the step of incineration (calcificatio) to gain the mineral components of the medicinal plants. In PEKANA Spagyrics the press residue is incinerated at approx. 900°C. Subsequently, the ashes are solved in hot water for purification, tirred until the mineral components have dissolved and then filtered. The filtrate is evaporated till dry in a water-bath. So the mineral plant components (sal) can be gained in their purified form.

Unification (conjugation) - Step 4 of PEKANA Spagyrics


The first three steps of the spagyric manufacturing process deal with separating the curative components from the plant body. In that context we should once again remember the following quotation by Paracelsus:

    "What we see is not the medicine but the body in which it is caught, because Arcana, the healing
    powers of the elements, are invisible."

In the fourth step the circuit is closed now towards the finished spagyric mother tincture. Unification (conjugatio) of the purified mineral plant components (sal) with the alcoholic fermentaion liquid (sulphur and mercury). Then a last filtration process is done. These spagyric mother tinctures gained at PEKANA in this special way have the addition "spag. Peka" to their names.

    PEKANA Spagyrics according to Dr. Beyersdorff is a unique possiblity to transfer the wholeness of the
    healing principle as completely as possible into a remedy.
