Mercury compounds and sulfur
Ayurveda / / August 12, 2017
Mercury Basma, being very "hot", has only limited therapeutic use.Chlorides and iodides of mercury are water soluble and therefore undesirable, whereas insoluble sulfides even under the influence of gastric acid and are non-toxic when properly prepared and applied.Moreover, black sulfide of mercury is used industrially for purification of the environment from mercury pollution free.
Sulfur has four varieties: yellow, white, red and black.Yellow sulfur is used in Ayurveda for the preparation of the internal use of drugs, and white - the outer.Sulfur is purified by boiling in an iron pot with an equal amount of melted butter.When it is melted, poured into milk.Sometimes sulfur as mercury, is subjected to distillation for purification: small vial was placed in a large sulfur, salt pot filled with a wide neck, covered with inverted top pot and heated.Sulfur is brought to the "boiling" due to hot salt rather than direct heat.Its condensate collects at the bottom of the upper pot cooled damp cloth.Sulfur is u
mercury complex purification process including distillation, it is added in a proportion of sulfur purified two, four, eight or even more parts to one part of mercury.This is done to ensure that all of the metal molecules could react.This mixture is then slowly pounded in a mortar and pestle wide for at least twenty-four hours - until a thin black powder mercury sulphide appears.He called kaddzhali and is used as a separate medicine, and as a component of other medicines.Kaddzhali as guggul - a great yo-Gavahi;it carries all that is mixed with it, the deepest and most remote corners of the body.It also has a preservative effect, therefore, tablets containing kaddzhali (or other mercury compounds) are stored for much longer than a purely herbal preparations.
When hardened kaddzhali goes into the red sulphide of mercury, known in Ayurveda called rasa sindoor.The most famous race sindoor referred «Makaradhvadzh» and is used in Ayurveda for more than five centuries.To prepare «Makaradh-vadzha» gold is added to mercury before cooking from it kaddzhali.Prepared kaddzhali then placed in a glass bottle with a narrow neck and is gradually warmed in a sand bath (as well as from distillation, only sand is used here instead of the salt).With increasing temperature, the bottle is filled with reddish fumes, and when cooled «Makaradhvadzh» accumulates inside the neck of the bottle. «Makaradhvadzh» - powerful heart tonic tool, which also enhances the sexual feeling, has a rejuvenating effect and strengthens the nervous system.It finds its application in the treatment of respiratory diseases, mental and physical weakness.Usually it is placed under the tongue, as well as basmu and sometimes added to «Someone vanprash". like him up, called «Purna Chandra Dai race», serves to strengthen all the major organs of the body, increase vitality and memory exacerbation.It is sometimes called the greatest of all drugs for its amazing utility. «Race sindoor» also prepared with silver, copper, arsenic oxide or sulfide of arsenic.
There are many methods of preparation of drugs.Some mercury preparations, for example «Suvarnaradzha vangeshvara», which contains tin and helps with many diseases of the genital organs, do not rise to the bottleneck during cooking.Other formulations are prepared even without a glass bottle.As it turns out «Suvarna parpati», used primarily in colitis and malabsorption syndrome.Although «Makaradhvadzh» consists of the same components as the «Suvarna parpati», due to differences in cooking, they differ in their effect: «Suvarna parpati» does not affect the sexual sphere, whereas «Makaradhvadzh » such influence.Some medications are prepared exclusively with a mortar and pestle, while others, such as «Hemagarbha» (consisting of kaddzhali, gold and copper Basma and used in chronic cardiopulmonary diseases) and «Ratnagarbha» (which in addition includes precious stones andapplied under similar diseases) are boiled in a closed pot, suspended in a porous bag in certain liquids.The drug «Hemagarbha» make out in the form of small sticks.Before use, it is ground on the stone with the honey and the resulting ointment is already used for their intended purpose - with this method at the same time achieved a good grinding preparation, mixing with a carrier and a fast therapeutic effect.
