This ancient elixir of natural origin until today hides many secrets. It has always been used for treating various diseases, and then it fell into oblivion, but the interest about this elixir reappears in modern time.
Mumio renaissance as an elixir started in the African-Arabic world, in the Middle East.
Its names are different, but very informative. Arabs call it Arakul frog, which means forest sweat, or mummy. It can also be found under the name Hazir-alazesa, which means ‘what keeps the body’, and moreover, it is simply called Titus-wax. In Persia has always been called Mumijo, which means ‘body protector’, and Burmese call it Kao-tun, or mountain blood. Tibetians called it ‘Mountain juice’ or ‘Bragshun’ and natives of Siberia ‘Stone oil’ or oil stone, Cossacks always added Azel, which means real Mumio. Some authors have tried to explain the name Mumio with the MUM word, which means soft as wax and OIN notion of an Iranian village where the elixir was found.
Classical Eastern medicine differs between Mumio salazhidi – black, resinous odorless material and Mumijo Arabiya, with dark maroon color and specific fragrance. Both can be found in Asia, at more than 2,800 meters altitude. Mumio is located in faults and fissures of rocks, caves, and sandy clay and limestone cliffs. The richest areas with mumio are places overgrown with fir forest.
In general, Mumio cannot be found below 1500 meters above sea altitude, and mainly, it is ‘hidden’ on many inaccessible areas. About 2 tons of this elixir is produced in Asia on annual level.
In folk tradition Mumio is being mentioned as balm with healing power, and it is attributed as with mysterious origin. Science has confirmed that it has organic origin, and that it is created thanks to some microorganisms that are found on earth, animals and their excrement, and some plants.
On big altitudes, where the air is poor in oxygen, and where severe winds lord, and the temperature differences are large, on places where there is increased electromagnetic radiation, as well as dry and hot areas, there is no significant influence of microorganisms that decompose the organic debris. In such conditions, biomasses of animal or vegetable origin, not decomposed, by time are being mummified and polymerized, harden in the absence of moisture or in her presence, result in liquid or in the form of gelatin. Mumio’s simplest definition would be that it is a product arising under the influence of natural physical and chemical phenomena.
According to its place of origin, there are few types of Mumio:
Mumio which is created in the process of mummification or slow decomposition of the bodies of animals or insects; Mumio which is created as a product of lower plants such as lichens; Mumio which is created from resins produced which protrudes from firs strains, which is mixed with the ground and deposited in the crevices of rocks having a characteristic odor and sticky appearance; gelatin mass obtained by the anaerobic decomposition of the plants; Mumio made from hardened limbs of small animals and goats; bee origin Mumio, deriving from honey and wax of wild bees, polymerized because of the longstanding; and mineral Mumio, from the highest mountain ridges, with no growing plants and no animals, formed from minerals through the action of microorganisms.
Mumio color can vary, ranging from black, dark brown, to maroon brown; its smell is characteristic and sharp, and the taste is bitter. It is very little soluble in water.
Many medieval doctors wrote about Mumio, and each has his own conjecture about its origin and composition. Up to this day the nature and the occurrence of this elixir are not completely elucidated, which make more difficult its extensive introduction in medicine and pharmacology.
Extensive analysis of Mumio, depending on the type, show that there are between 18 and 25 detected trace elements; It contains amino acids, protein compounds and many other substances.
Thanks to the existence of numerous substances of mineral and organic origin, in this natural wonder, Mumio was used for the most severe fractures of bones and other ailments since prehistoric times.
The way the ancient people have been trying the quality of Mumio is interesting [because in the past, as today, happened to occur fakes].
Here is what one researcher has noticed:
“If they broke the leg of a rooster or a chicken, they took 0,5 grams of Mumio and mixed it with red rose oil. They would do that by putting the rose into water, adding oil and boil it. The water evaporates, the oil remains that is strained through gauze. Some of the mixture was put into the rooster’s throat, and the other pat is applied on the broken leg, and it is wrapped. If within 24 hours the bone of the rooster grows together, Mumio was considered as good, pure and with good quality. Sometimes the bone of the poultry was growing together within 16-17 hours.
Beside growing together of the bones, whereby it has been believed to be unsurpassed remedy, Mumio is also used for treating weakness of the stomach and the kidneys, heart diseases, tuberculosis, asthma, inflammatory processes, poisoning with toxins of vegetable origin, diabetes, wounds, ulcers and burns. There are many manuscripts since ancient times that we have received from India, Middle Asia, China, and other countries. Most favorable sayings about the Mumio are by Aristotle, Avicenna, Biruni, Araz, and other scholars and doctors, who are remembered throughout the history because of their wisdom and education.
Poets recommend Mumio for the most novel disease among the diseases – love sadness, and the ancient eastern thought says that “only Mumio can save you from death”.
Rich passengers and traders never went on the road without a box of Mumio, for prevention against possible diseases while traveling. Mumio in the past has been used also for accelerating the body regenerative processes, for renewal of the weakened function of the peripheral nervous system.
The anticoagulation effect of the Mumio has been confirmed, as well as the positive effects it has on the function of the cardiovascular system. There are evidence that Mumio renews the after heart attack processes, and speeds up and supports the renewal of all muscle, bone and nervous tissues and the blood.
In additional spa treatment, Mumio has also shown itself as an excellent remedy during the treatment of stomach ulcers and the duodenum. Moreover, it has been used for treatment of platelet deep veins, 0,3 grams once a day for ten days. Disease symptoms have been lost within 8-10 days.
There are also excellent results in treating periodontitis (gum disease) with the help of this Mumio solution.
From the Moscow Medical Dentistry Institute data it can be seen that Mumio helps the immunological status of the human at some hidden immunodeficiency conditions. At some diseased people of infectious-allergic bronchial asthma, deficiency of T-system of the immunity has been detected, and they took 0,15 gr of Mumio twice a day, during 15-20 days. After completing the treatment it has been stated that the T-cell in their blood had approximately the normal values.
Although scientists are facing long process for full study of the features of the Mumio, what can be said about the Mumio is that it is classified as elixir, or bio stimulator of first instance. It is recommended to many people, but besides being relatively nonhazardous, the use of Mumio is not recommended to people prone to bleeding, hemophiliacs, and to those suffering high blood pressure.
