Mav ric also shares his intricate theory of astral medicine and advocates a seasonal "Hermetic diet" designed to keep the humors of the body in equilibrium and prevent the onset of illness. In the final section of the book, Mav ric focuses on the more advanced methods and techniques of Paracelsus, Helmont, and George Starkey, unraveling the mysteries of manufacturing alkalis, alkahests, and menstrua and divulging his own secret formula for a universal circulatum.
