Raised bogs are waterlogged mounds of partially decomposed plant materials, which have accumulated naturally over time. R.S.: mounds are especially effective at absorbing positive cosmic forces and rejecting disruptive forces. Raised bogs are areas where predominately sphagnum moss (sphagnum cymbifolium) and cotton sedge grass (eriophorum vaginatum) grow on the watery decomposing vegetation underneath. Over many decades of decay and regeneration of moss and grass, a spongy decomposing mass develops. As the raised bog increases in thickness and moisture content, peat develops underneath. Raised bogs are generally found in the cool far Northern latitudes where there is acidic matter, a slow oxidation occurs and partially decayed plant materials build up. Peat is plant material at the start of a process of carbonization leading to black peat and coal. For coal to form, the sunlight and warmth from plant life has been transformed, whilst for peat this process is arrested and there is a blocking and holding of warmth and cosmic forces. Plant life becomes suffocated and is unable to decay fully.
Health and Peat: R.S. gave indications that clothing and substances from peat could offer protection and healing to humanity in the future (environmental stress including electromagnetic radiation).
Dr. Rudolf Hauschka studied the elemental beings or nature spirits involved in the plant kingdom. Normally when plants die in autumn, the digestive processes of the earth cause the plant life to form humus for future regeneration and the elemental beings are released into the surrounding cosmos. In a peat bog, the elementals remain connected and trapped with the partially decomposed plant substances for decades and even centuries. Each year's new growth partially dies and falls mummified on top of the previous layer. Years of accumulated plant matter results in the forming of peat.
The proper activity of the elementals is to care for the natural world until humans develop to the stage that they can creatively and responsibly carry this task. In the moors, the elementals are bound
to the peat such that over time they become hostile and angry towards a positive evolution of the cosmos. A sense of this angry, somber nature is in the atmosphere of all moors due to these aberrant elemental beings. R.S. considered releasing these elementals as a task for humans today. Through the right biological care peat can be enlivened, the fiber spun for clothing and the fluids used medicinally, enabling people to be strengthened physically and protected from the destructive environmental changes in the future. What a release comes when these beings are liberated in the manufacture of peat products to protect and care for people.
Solum uliginosum = moor extract (wa)
Where the birches and pines start to thin out and the sandy soil gives way to heavy, dark earth is where the moor begins. With a quick stride, Friedrich Lütjen leads the way and explains how the highmoor which we see in front of us came into being: "For hundreds of years, our region was characterised by high humidity - it rained a lot. The water accumulated especially in the upper layer of the soil. The constant excess of water led to a lack of oxygen in the ground, which conserved the plant remains and made them accumulate as peat. Layer by layer, the peat grew higher and moved farther and farther away from the groundwater. This is why it is referred to as a highmoor or highland bog." Subsequently, the moor was fed by rainwater only and became overgrown with moss, which stored the water in its leaves. When the moss died, it formed another layer of peat. "This is how the moor grew and grew," concludes Friedrich Lütjen.
Light and dark, movement and rest
When Johann Kurz opens the container, the earthy fragrance of peat fills the air. He carefully transfers the peat to an enamelled earthenware pot and adds sterile, ultra-pure water. Using a large spoon, he stirs the mixture briskly until the water opens up into a swirling spiral. It is already clear what Johann Kurz means when he says:
"WALA relies on an extraordinary process to obtain its moor extract." He is referring to the rhythmic light process during which the large pot with the mixture is kept in the dark and only exposed to daylight at sunrise and sundown, when it is stirred. The polarities of light and darkness, movement and rest alternate with one another.
After seven days, the peat blocks have completely dissolved - the liquid now looks like dark milk. Johann Kurz carefully presses off the liquid, transfers the remaining moor extract to a vat and stirs it again thoroughly.
He then adds two essences: extracts of horse chestnut. and field horsetail., both plants that have a dynamic relationship with water, either absorbing it (horse chestnut) or transporting it and giving it off externally (field horsetail). These characteristics differentiate the two plants significantly from peat, which binds water and does not allow it to flow. Shortly after Johann Kurz begins stirring the mixture, a new, aromatic fragrance becomes evident; the moor extract takes on a brighter colour and appears lighter. One can sense that the rigidness of the moor is dissolving and that the two plant extracts are bringing about a new development. After a few weeks of rest, a fermentation has taken place in the extract, transforming the mixture yet again. Now the mixture has reached its final stage: WALA moor extract, referred to by experts as Solum uliginosum (Solum = Latin for soil, uliginosum = Latin for moor). But what complaints is moor extract used to treat in WALA Medicines?
What holds our bodies together inside
Let us first examine the elementary yet highly complex substance that holds our living bodies together: connective tissue. This collagenous tissue connects organs, nerves, tendons, blood vessels and muscles throughout the body, envelops and protects every organ and defines us physically with respect to the external environment. It is also able to bind liquid; it is not least due to connective tissue that adults consists of some 60 - 70% water depending on age, newborns up to 80%. If the fluid content of the connective tissue becomes imbalanced due to deposited substances which cannot be eliminated, excessive physiological acidity and toxic build-up in the tissue may occur. Individuals with this condition experience a certain feeling of rigidness and heaviness. The body can no longer defend itself as well against external influences, which leads to increased sensitivity to emotions, pain and the weather.
A healthy barrier to the outside, lightness and warmth are the keywords that best describe the effects of WALA Solum products. As the name indicates, they all contain the Solum uliginosum extract. But how can we explain the effect of the moor extract on imbalanced connective tissue? If we consider in more detail the processes that take place in moor, we can observe parallels to the disturbance in the fluid balance of human connective tissue. The moor does not transform dead plant material into compost, rather it conserves and stores it. Liquid stagnates in moor and there is a lack of oxygen and warmth. In using WALA Solum Öl (Solum Oil), it can be seen that the moor extract activates exactly the opposite processes in the human body. Fluid in the connective tissue is able to flow once again, also with the help of the two extracts of horse chestnut and field horsetail, which are effective in treating fluid imbalances. The tissue is unblocked and gently warmed at the same time; the oil forms an invisible protective layer around the body and serves as a barrier against external influences. The feeling of heaviness disappears, replaced by a sensation of lightness. A healthy balance is restored. In this way, Solum Öl also soothes rheumatic complaints, muscle tension and back pain. WALA Solum Globuli are effective against weather sensitivity, neuralgia and spinal complaints.

Menschen, die bei Nacht im Moor vom Weg abkommen und dann langsam immer tiefer sinken, bis nur noch die Hand herausschaut, sind ein beliebtes Element von Horror-/Gruselgeschichten.
Und gibt es nicht in deutschen Museen über 600 gut konservierte Moorleichen, die von dieser Gefahr ein beredtes Zeugnis ablegen?
Aber dass ein Mensch »einfach so« im Moor versinkt, verhindert schon die Physik. Ein Moor ist eine Art Zwitter zwischen Land und Wasser. Es fällt dort mehr Wasser vom Himmel, als
wieder verdunsten kann. Die Folge ist ein Luftabschluss, unter dem Pflanzen, Tiere und auch Menschen anders verrotten als in gewöhnlicher Erde.
Tückisch ist das Moor, weil es Gebiete mit relativ festem und fast trockenem Untergrund gibt, die dann plötzlich und kaum erkennbar von Flächen mit sehr dünnflüssigem, schlammigem
Untergrund abgelöst werden. Aber dieser Schlamm hat ein spezifisches Gewicht, das über dem von Wasser liegt. Und das bedeutet: Ein eingetauchter menschlicher Körper, dessen Dichte etwa
der von Wasser entspricht, geht nicht unter – sondern er erfährt schon dann einen Auftrieb, wenn er nur teilweise eingetaucht ist. So kann man im Moor zwar ein sinken (was sehr unangenehm
sein kann, zum Beispiel wegen der Stechmücken), aber nicht versinken.
Doch was ist mit den Moorleichen? Historiker gehen davon aus, dass es sich vor allem bei den Funden aus dem ersten Jahrtausend unserer Zeitrechnung um Opfer für diverse Götter handelt.
Später sind häufig Tote, die an einer anderen Ursache gestorben waren, im Moor bestattet worden. Der Tod durch Versinken hingegen ist eine reine Horrorfantasie.
