WHY BIRCH CHARCOAL?
Introducing Anthroposophical Medicine
Lecture 15, April 4 1920, Dornach
Excerpt from this lecture:
“Once again, these are things that were simply part of primeval humanity’s instinctive defensive response to injury. When primeval human beings noticed any sign of their thinking becoming weak, they turned to some mineral substance, which they took. By breaking down this mineral substance internally, they once again acquired the ability to be in harmony with supra-earthly factors that are very far removed from the Earth. It is possible to trace processes in the natural world outside the human being in a way that permits direct observation of the validity of statements such as this. Let us do this by considering a plant that is extremely interesting in this regard, Betula Alba, or white birch.
White birch counteracts or refuses to participate in the normal process of plant development in two ways. The usual process of plant development would come about if you could mix what happens in birch bark with what happens in birch leaves, especially the young spring leaves that still have a trace of brown in them. If you could mix these two separate processes and make the active principle in birch bark work together with the active principle in birch leaves, you would get a wonderful herbaceous flowering plant. The birch tree comes about simply because the processes that arise during the living formation of protein are carried into the leaves to a greater extent than is normal. The protein-forming process is concentrated in the leaves, while the process of potassium salt formation is preserved in the bark. In a plant that remains herbaceous rather than becoming a birch tree, the process of potassium salt formation mingles with the process of protein formation in the plant’s roots. In the birch tree, what the roots take from the Earth is forced outward into the bark, while the leaves receive what a herbaceous plant would mingle with what comes from the Earth.
Thus, the birch tree works on the human organism from two different directions. Through its bark, which contains the appropriate potassium salts, it works in cases where the patient’s desalinizing processes need to be stimulated, as in skin rashes, for example. What shoots outwards into the bark in the birch tree also shoots outward in the human being, where it has a therapeutic effect. But if you take the leaves, which produce the protein-forming forces, you get the birch factor that influences the center part of the human being, where it proves to be a good remedy for gout and rheumatism. If you want to further enhance the process, you can take the mineral aspect of the birch’s development by producing charcoal from birch wood. Then you get therapeutic forces that work in a strong internal and external way on the outside of the human interior – that is, on the intestines, and so on.
We must learn to see a plant’s effect on the human being from its external form. If you study Betula Alba, you can say that if we wanted to transform this birch into an image in the human being so that it would make the entire human being healthy, we would turn it inside out and incorporate the forces that surge into the wood and bark into the human skin, the periphery, while we would take what the birch sends outward and apply it to the interior of the human being. We would turn the entire birch tree inside out in the human being – as an image, mind you; this is meant to provide you with an image in such a way that we can trace the healing forces it offers to the human being.
