The benefits of amber and how you can use amber to improve your health.
Albert the Great (1193-1280), a Dominican and a philosopher, identifies amber as the first among the six most effective medicines; succinum, ocastoreum, mors, camphor, tartarus, and aurum. Tinctures originating from the same period were based on beer, wine or water and were effective cures for stomach and rheumatic aches. There are no records even vaguely suggesting any undesirable or harmful effect of amber.
It is interesting to note that the Chinese rely on Pure, Natural Baltic Amber. Centuries ago they have found what science has since proven, that the Amber Acid from Natural Baltic Amber is the active agent and that they need Natural Baltic Amber for their remedies to be effective. Simply stated, even unripe gooseberries and rhubarb stalks, which are the richest in the natural acid, contain a thousand times less of the acid than in Baltic amber- succinite.
