[Note: This is a bare-bones outline of a logical progession that occurred to me, a few months ago (although the discovery was a different sequence). It may well be flawed in some respects. Just thought someone might want to investigate further, attempt a “wet-method“ or some-such experiment]

1) In the excerpt below, David Hudson mentions the relatively high Ormus rhodium/iridium content of a product called Maharishi Amrit Kalash:


David Hudson: Acemannan does not contain any gold but it contains 90% rhodium.

binga: Maharishi Amrit Kalash?

David Hudson: I don't have the numbers but it is quite high in rhodium and iridium both.

binga: What process did you use to test it?

David Hudson: That was done at MIU. They actually did the analysis with my supervision. I was showing them how to do quantitative analysis upon natural products, and they actually have the numbers, not me.

binga: So you did a bench mark test with all those other materials?

David Hudson: No, with the Amrit Kalash. I just said, give me some material that you use for medicinal purposes for cancer or for HIV. And they said well that would be Amrit Kalash. I said fine, lets take some of it and it looks like. Let's scoop some of it up and do an analysis on it. And we ran it about a week and a half. We did quantitative separation of rhodium and iridium, and there's a bunch.

binga: The highest you found in anything?

David Hudson: Oh no. The Acemannan is the highest we found in anything. We are talking about probably 10% maybe of both. [Rhodium and iridium in the Amrit Kalash]

2) This product [Amrit Kalash] is, according to my comparison, basically a good brand of the ancient ayurvedic herbal paste known as “Chyawanprash.”



3) As is typical of sophisticated herbal formulas, most of the herbal ingredients serve a supportive and assimilation-assistance role for the primary ingredient. In the case of Chyawanprash, ghee (clarified butter) and cane sugar are also added as delivery adjuncts.

4) The fruit/herb Amalaki is the primary ingredient of Chyawanprash, constituting (according to my estimation) something like 80+ percent of the product.


5) Therefore, one might consider the possibility that Amalaki/Amla/Indian Gooseberry is relatively high in Ormus rhodium/iridium.

6) Amalaki/Amla has been employed in Kaya Kalpa rejuvenative therapy even without the accompanying herbs of Chyawanprash:


“Cut the top of a healthy growing PALASHA TREE ( BHUTEA FRONDOSA ) and insert into the hollow made in the PALASHA stem up to a depth of two cubits the pulp of fresh Amla fruits ( EMPLICA PHYLLANTHUS ) and tie round the stem up to the bottom “DUB” grass and cover it up with mud taken from a lotus pond; and then let the humidity dry up by setting fire to the stem in a heap of dung cakes in a place excluded from draught. The Amla fruit so dried up is to be taken with honey and butter by a man to his heart’s content, and boiled milk is to be taken after it to his heart’s desire. This treatment is to be pursued for a month. Those things are to be avoided carefully which are prescribed for avoidance in such practice, and cold water should not be touched even with the hand. After eleventh day the hair, teeth and nails begin to fall off; and after some days the man regains his youthful form , possessing imperishable manly strength equal to that of an elephant, with improved muscles, strength, intellect and vitality, he lives a thousand years.”

7) As I move into Inedia, one concoction I will continue to imbibe, consists of the following:

One-half gallon of water, three tablespoons of edible clay, and some Himalayan salt, placed in MEOW-kettle magnetite chargers for 4+ days.

From this source, a glass is poured out and two teaspoons of Amalaki powder is added/stirred.

The result is very invigorating, to me, even without the additional supportive herbs/foods.

So, perhaps this is due to Amalaki having an appreciable Ormus rhodium/iridium content.

PS: On the subject of Kaya Kalpa, a fascinating book entitled "Maharaj: A Biography of Shriman Tapasviji Maharaj, a Mahatma Who Lived for 185 Years" documents the life of a man who underwent at least 3 extended Kaya Kalpa treatments. Unfortunately the herbal formula is not spelled out. However, he claimed it wasn't the central feature anyway. In one of the Amazon.com reviews, in the link below, there is a good synopsis:
