Rinchen Seljed Chakril Chenmo (Great Precious Iron Compound) contains 40 ingredients including iron powder (prepared through a series of ancient detoxifying processes), and the three myrobalan fruits as well as saffron, magnetite, vasaka, mineral pitch and additional components . This is a famous and commonly-prescribed ancient Tibetan precious pill, deeply enriched with the spiritual blessings of the lineage.
This precious pill is traditionally used to treat cataracts, intolerance to light, bloodshot eyes, difficulty seeing due to dilation of the pupil, blurred vision, general weakening of vision, sensitivity to wind, swelling of the eyelid, dry and watery eyes, growth of wart or pimples on the sclera (pinguecula), outer cataract and aqueous humor disorder, lacrimal gland infection, various optic nerve issues, difficulty in opening and closing of eyes, and as a general treatment for all kinds of eye disorders. We have just received reports that this formula is also very helpful in cases of ocular migraine.
It is exceptionally beneficial in working with cataracts due to chronic compounded poisoning, anemia, rashes and pimples, blood emesis due to chronic gastro-intestinal disorder (Tibetan: muk po), and is used for chronic jaundice. When taken by a healthy person, it acts to prevent all of the above disorders, and generally protects the eyes against illness and degeneration.
Note: These precious pills are very powerful. We strongly recommend you use them only under the recommendation of a trained Tibetan or Chinese doctor.

In order treat chronic conditions or when used to improve general health and vitality, the following method is preferred:
Soak the pill overnight in a small amount of hot boiled water, covering it with a lid. Do not expose the pill to bright light. Before dawn the next morning, crush and stir the contents either with the ring finger while reciting the Medicine Buddha mantra a few times (see below), then drink the whole mixture after adding a small amount of hot water. Follow with another cup of hot water. Immediately return to bed, covering oneself with warm blankets and sleep for about an hour in order to induce perspiration. Upon waking, drink additional hot water infused with saffron to close the channels of the subtle body. This process helps the formula to penetrate as deeply as possible. To increase the effects one may take the pill on the new or full moon, or during other auspicious times.
For three to seven days after taking the formula, it is considered auspicious and beneficial to avoid fish, pork, eggs, onion, garlic, fermented foods, hot spices, rigorous exercises and sports, sleeping during the day, cold showers, large amounts of raw food, and sexual activity.
