Also I have read (and it seems to be somewhat probable) that the herb, being gathered as I showed
before, and the elements draw apart from it by art of the alchymist, and after they are drawn apart rectified,
the earthly quality, still in rectifying them, added to the Terra damnata (as Alchymists call it) or Terra
Sacratisima (as some philosophers call it) the elements so rectified are sufficient for the cure of all diseases,
the humours offending being known and the contrary element given. It is an experiment worth the trying,
and can do no harm.
