Hey there

Post  simonv on Fri Apr 04, 2008 2:42 am

Hello
I came across this forum doing a seach on Sal Ammoniac, the symbol for which I was interested to see is on the cover of the magician RJ Stewart's book Living Magical Arts.
I've long been a student of alchemy, western and Chinese, and look forward to making exchanges.

Sup
Welcome to the forums. I feel the same as monkeyblood. I know a little about Chinese alchemy but not much maybe you should make a new topic about it.

Re: Chinese Alchemy

In ancient china they also ingested Gold and Silver in tonics prescribed from their physician, gold, silver and ginseng have long been considered to contribute to longevity.

Ginseng the English word for ginseng derives from the Chinese term rénshēn (simplified: 人参; traditional: 人蔘), literally "man root" (referring to the root's characteristic forked shape, resembling the legs of a man).

Ginseng's medical efficacy remains unproven. It has been difficult to verify the medicinal benefits of ginseng using science, as there are contradictory results from different studies, possibly due to the wide variety and quality of ginseng used in studies. High-quality studies of the effects of ginseng are rare.

Panax ginseng is not recommended within Chinese Medicine to be administered along with anti-infective herbs unless a person is quite debilitated, because of the fear that the pathogen will be tonified. Herbalists in China believed this and according to Xu Dachun in his brief essay on ginseng (1757 A.D., during the Qing Dynasty): "if one administers Ginseng of a purely supplementing nature, then one will merely supplement the evil influences and help them settle down. In minor cases, the evil influences will, as a result of such mistaken therapy, never leave the body again. In serious cases, death is inevitable." Tongue

Crouching Tiger Rocks!

There is a lot of interest regarding Chinese Alchemy around I've noticed... no real hardcore discussions yet though!

Although there is a thread on the subject HERE, which have kind of died so let's get it rockin' again!
