Figure 1: Schematic representation of the turning disc of the apparatus that has been used since autumn of 1996 at Hiscia Institute (Arlesheim, Switzerland) to produce anthroposophically processed Viscum album extract (APVAE). The winter mistletoe extract flows into the center of a 1 m diameter titanium disc rotating at 10,000 rpm and then spreads out horizontally. At the upturned disc edge (“mixing zone”), it combines with summer mistletoe extract dropping vertically from a height of 1 meter. Summer mistletoe extract enters the rotating disk not only at one position as schematically outlined above but also at 12 positions, equally spaced along the edge of the disk.
