Cto takoe mumijo?

IN 1955 g. for the first time in the Soviet Union on the basis of ethnographic information and medical manuscripts A. W. Shakirov began to study the pharmacological properties of mummies and found a fairly wide possibilities therapeutic action.

The chemical composition of the mummy

Chemical and spectral studies of mummies found, that its composition exceptionally rich in trace elements (especially silicon, aluminum, iron, calcium, manganese, cobalt, magnesium, lead, titanium, Nikel), and various amino acids and fatty acids. Studies in some way shed light on the nature and origin of the mummy. However, on this issue in the literature there are still very conflicting opinions.

Proisxoƶdenie mumijo

Some scientists believe, cto mumijo, or, as it is sometimes called, "Mountain wax", "Blood Mountain", "Pot Rocks", "Adhesive stone", produce wild honeybees, bearing the name of "mummy asil" (mumijon, mumiina).

Some scientists refer to the form of mummies geological formation, appearing in the cracks of the mountain rocks. Modern expedition mummy mined in deep caves, grottoes, located at high altitudes (2860-3000 m), in the field, inaccessible to penetration of animals and birds, and unfavorable for the growth of such plants even, As lichens.

Discovery as part of the mummy "mummified" excrement of rodents with a mixture of various substances of plant origin and products of microorganisms gave reason to believe, that the mummy is of animal origin.

In Tibetan literature mummy known as' Brag-shun ". The letter "brag-Sun" comes from "brag" – scale and "Shun» – float, natechka (literally rock wandering abscess). Many sources Brag-shun compared with the nectar of the five elements of matter. It is believed, Brag-shun that accumulates on the shady side of the rock cliffs and formed like mercury, feldspar, kinovari. In his treatise "Yang Chzhadbo" reported: "From the rocks, hot hot rays of summer heat, juice of six kinds of metals, jewelery (gold, silver, Copper, gland, tin, lead), Such liquid extract, seep and expire, that called Brag-shun, ie rocky wandering abscess ". Thus, in the treatises of Tibetan medicine education Brag-Shun associated exclusively with the geological processes.

Brag-shun it described as heavy and solid, which has a characteristic color and odor, dissolves without residue. "If in Braga-Shun there is an admixture of land, stones, animal feces, This species is considered the worst, but if sourced in the holy places, it is still useful ".

There are five main types of Brag-Shun – gold, silver, copper, glandular, tin. This classification Brag-Shun given on the basis of appearance, taste characteristics and medicinal properties. So, Gold Brag-shun has a reddish-yellow color, sweet-bitter taste, It has a broad spectrum of therapeutic action, "Contributes to longevity". A property is ascribed to cure diseases of the nervous system and sensory organs with secretory function. It is similar to frozen dry bear bile, a burning smell, dissolves without residue (saffron solution reminds). All in all kinds of Brag-Shun, according treatises, 115.

To establish the nature of education mummy scientists have studied the variety of substances called "argali-tash". His search took place in the mountains of the reserve Aksu Dzhabagly. After a long and laborious work, scientists have concluded, cto mumijo (Arkhara-Tash) It is not the mountain balsamic substance, associated with the formation rocks, and organic matter, produced by animals.

Analyses showed, that rodent feces, Living in the mountains, chemical composition does not differ from the mummy (Arkhara-Tash), that led to the idea to get it artificially. Mountain voles silvery steel nurture a diverse set of drugs, weeds and crops. Investigating animal excrement, Scientists came to the conclusion, what, probably, poisonous herbs and medicinal plants, eaten by small animals, promote the formation of mummy (Arkhara-Tash). It was also found, that all types of mummies, regardless of the location and the mechanism of formation, contain organic carbon. On this basis, scientists have made the following conclusions:

  • all kinds of mummies are of organic origin;
  • material for the formation mummies are: minerals, soil microorganisms, plants, animals and their waste products.

In the Highlands, under conditions of reduced oxygen content, Strong winds, extreme temperatures, increased ultraviolet radiation, as well as in hot dry areas the activity of microorganisms, ensuring the decomposition of organic residues, sharply reduced. Because of this, the conditions, where biomass animal or vegetable origin are not destroyed by microorganisms, and over time and polymerize mummified. In some places, not available moisture, îíè zatverdevayut, and other – dissolved soil water, scattered or forming voids in the sinter structures.

Mumijo asilь – bitter taste solid mass, good solubility in water, dark brown or black, with smooth surface, polished time. Mumijo – low-toxic substance, easily softens on heating. Best mummy mummy asil considered black, bright, with a slight smell of oil. It is being tested as: It takes a small piece of mummies and placed on the palm, if from the heat of your hands it starts to melt slightly, dulcify, Like wax, It means mummy good quality. If heat from the palm mummy does not soften – the quality of its low.

The most the best proof of quality mummy – fast therapeutic effect, especially when fractures.
