In ancient India, Jewel Essences were regarded as a supreme remedy and were
called “Medicine of the Maharajas”. Nine principal healing stones
are described in the ancient medical teachings of Ayurveda and Alchemy, and
it is very striking that both systems, with very few exceptions, regard these
nine as the most powerful healing stones. They are related to the same planets
and chakras (which are called “seals of the planets” in Alchemy)
and, to a great extent, are used for the same conditions.
However, know-how regarding the production of these
essences through the dissolution of jewels seemed to have been
Even in India and Tibet, only jewel powders, pills and lotions are produced
for healing purposes today, but not the liquid, the highest jewel medicine
of the Maharajas.
Recently two German alchemists, however, succeded in re-enacting the production
process of these legendary essences by referring to coded laboratory manuals
especially from Paracelsus. Initial research and practical experience with
the Jewel Essences indeed shows highly unusual positive effects.
The effects of alchemistic Jewel Essences have been investigated
in cooperation with several technical colleges and therapists
by the LIFE TEST Institute, a
neutral institute for biophysical research in Emmendingen in Southern Germany.
Amongst other findings, it was established that with 80 per cent of test persons
the Emergency Rescue Drops, a mixture of all nine Jewel Essences, induce an increase
of energy similar to, or even greater than, the effectiveness of orthodox drugs.
Still, the effect upon the harmonious distribution of energy over the entire
meridian system is even greater than that – which means that the Emergency
Rescue balances and harmonizes the meridian system especially effectively and
intensely. With the other 20 per cent of test persons, the same effect showed
for the sole use of Emerald Essence which is associated with the heart chakra.
(The heart chakra is regarded as the central agency for the control and regulation
of the human energy system.)
These findings also corroborate long-standing practical experience gathered by
the famous „jewel doctor“ Dr. Benoytosh Bhattaracharya and his team.
Even back in the 1970s he had discovered that the effects of a certain healing
stone upon a certain disease are remarkably intensified when a mixture made from
the nine principal healing stones (a so-called „chronical rescue“)
is additionally administered. Modern research indeed shows that the strongly
harmonizing and stimulating effects of the emergency rescue jewel drops actually
prepare the ground for other skilful therapeutic interventions.
The comprehensive list of indications for the use of jewels put together by Dr.
Bhattaracharya has also been proved by practical experience with the Jewel Essences.
This means that for their practical use comprehensive empirical knowledge based
on the traditional teachings of Ayurveda is available which applies to conditions
ranging from asthma to chickenpox (see tables below).
Ayurvedic Jewel Medicine
According to the teachings of Ayurveda, everything is being created by
rays“ of the planets. In a similar way, alchemistic teachings maintain
that the planetary forces bring about the trinity of Sal, Sulphur and Mercury – body,
soul and spirit.
The health of a person essentially depends upon whether the planetary forces
are in harmony in that person.
In detail, each chakra resonates with one of the planets – and all the
processes and diseases related to this specific chakra can be influenced and
treated by harmonizing and strengthening the respective planetary forces.
According to the Ayurveda, disease always originates in the energy system:
it will gradually descend from the crown chakra, which means the nervous
system, deeper into gross matter and finally into the root chakra and bones.
If a disease
is to be cured any therapeutic intervention has to reverse that process and „vibrate
out“ the disturbed planetary forces in the reverse direction. So, for instance,
a treatment of bowel problems must not end with the treatment of the abdominal
chakras but will have to include all the chakras above in order to completely
cure the illness. This is precisely what can be achieved by the Jewel Rescue,
which is why, in the case of bowel problems, for instance, it is employed in
support of a treatment with Pearl Essence or Emerald Essence (in the case of
Besides being used as medicine alchemistic essences can also be helpful in
developing one’s personality. This is because according to traditional ayurvedic descriptions,
taking a different essence on each respective day of the week will permanently
uplift the energy system to a higher level. In that form of treatment one always
takes the essence which corresponds to the planet of the respective day of the
week – i.e., Ruby Essence on Sunday, Pearl on Monday, Yellow Topaz on Tuesday,
Emerald on Wednesday, Sapphire on Thursday, Diamond on Friday, and Amethyst on
Saturday. In this way all the rhythms of the human system are being reconnected
to and recharged by the natural rhythms whereby it is possible to cure a host
of disorders of the general indisposition and stress disease type. If continued
not only over the course of several months but over at least seven years, even
paranormal abilities are promoted and supported, ancient Indian tradition has
it. In fact, mediumistically inclined therapists like holistic dentist Gabriele
Büttner from Zwickau in Germany report that even after just six weeks of
use their sensitivity and intuitive powers have increased: “Even when I’m
under stress, I can feel a patient’s disturbances much better now in pulse
diagnosis. My sensitivity and precision with kinesiological diagnosis have also
increased. There is clearer perception of the chakras and with every ingestion
of the essences I feel a warming-up of the respective chakra.”

Recent case reports
Judging from the experience of several non-medical practitioners, many emotional
and psychosomatic problems can be relieved by using a combination of Chrysoberyl
Essence in the morning, Emerald Essence around midday and Pearl and Zircon
Essences in the evening (3 to 5 drops respectively).
In cases of anxiety, a combination of Emerald (in the morning), Ruby (midday)
and Yellow Topaz (evening) has proven to be effective. Hyperactive children can
shift into a lower gear by help of a combination of Emerald/Amethyst (morning),
Emerald (midday) and Pearl (evening). In these cases the use of the single essences
is always accompanied by taking three drops of Jewel Rescue three times a day.
Bronchitis and coughs can be treated with a combination of Diamond, Sapphire,
Yellow Topaz and Pearl Essences. Asthma, inflammations and eczema also respond
well to this combination (see table).
Problems of the menopause can be relieved with the Diamond and Rescue Drops,disorders
of the pancreas with Sapphire and Rescue, and back pain with a combination of
Ruby, Amethyst and Chrysoberyl Essences.
There have already been some spectacular treatment successes. For instance, 27-year-old
Daniela T. from Augsburg in Bavaria suffered from Herford Syndrome, a disease
of the nervous system which destroys the sense perceptions and whose origins
are unclear. Already she had become unable to smell and taste, and her vision
had also gravely deteriorated. Orthodox medicine had not succeeded in improving
her condition, and further treatment seemed to be pointless. Her decline could
only be stopped by the strongest anti-cancer drugs, but these had paralyzed her
immune system to a great extent. In this situation she began taking the Rescue
Drops in combination with Aurum Potabile, the drinking-gold of the alchemists.
During the first four weeks she was already able to do without the orthodox drugs.
Her sense of smell and taste came back, and she feels much more vigorous.
Peter S. from Frankfurt suffered from erectile dysfunction that could not be
alleviated by drugs nor psychotherapy. His marriage was increasingly encumbered
and the emotional pressure on him became unbearable. For six weeks he took Pearl,
Emerald, Amethyst and Rescue Drops. He dreamed a lot during that time, was able
to address and clarify repressed problems and by now has completely overcome
his erectile dysfunction.
The preparation of the alchemistic Jewel Essences is as unusual as their
effects. The German manufacturers emphasize that there is a solvent,
a so-called “menstrum”,
which can be won from plants and is able to dissolve even the hardest minerals
and jewels. In that process the healing powers are extracted and the poisons,
the salts, are separated from them, the manufacturers allege. Such a solvent
is a mystery for orthodox chemistry, for it is neither an acid nor a lye. Still,
it is able to dissolve substances at room temperature which can otherwise only
be dissolved by the strongest acids or hot lyes. Finally what really pulls the
rug from under chemical book learning: After completing its task as a solvent,
this secret menstrum has become a medicine itself, because in dissolving the
jewels it is itself transmuted. Therefore, the preparation of this solvent is
regarded in Alchemy as one of the “magisterials”, one of the supreme
arts of this universal science, and has always been kept secret.
The entire production process is rather lengthy. First the jewels have to be “steeped”,
which according to the manufacturers can only be done at a certain time of the
year and under certain planetary constellations. After that preparatory stage,
the jewels are burned, ground down and dissolved by means of the solvent. This
liquid is distilled several times, part of the pulverized jewels is processed
into oil. Finally, everything is put together again and left to circulate in
a closed container for many weeks. The finished essence contains, according to
the alchemist’s view, the purified and heightened healing forces of the
jewel’s body, soul and spirit. In this way those planetary forces are released
that cooperated to bring about the existence of the jewel in the first place.
And it is the powerful cosmic energy of this “status nascendi”, this
moment of birth of a jewel, which makes the essences so powerful.
