Since pythons usually crush their prey and swallow them whole, one can imagine tales about southern ranshes, which are pythons being exaggerated into legendarily-constipated bashe. These giant snakes were known to eat an elephant every three years!!
The Big Snake eats elephants and after three years it disgorges their bones. Gentlemen take a dose of this snake so that they will never have heart disease or illnesses of the belly~
The Shanhaijing commentary by Guo Pu (276-324 CE) first depicts this incredible array of energy.... after eating a large animal, the python can wind around a tree trunk and expel the bones from between its scales; the literary notes showcase that the snakes could grow up to a length of about 270 meters.
The 1578 CE Bencao Gangmu entry for ranshe "python" mentions that the pythons can eat elephants, the bones of which they emit every three years. Gentlemen who take these bones as medicine never suffer from heart or visceral ailments. The excrement is rare to come across, and we also did not want to try and proclaim the regurgitated bones... so we had Emir search out a way to extract the essence of this medicine.
A shrew in a small oriental village helped Emir with this process. She had some of the bone fragments an proclaimed them into a substance that she glazed over these carved "bone" fragments.
These are now essential healing modules that will help not only men, but women as well. They are best noted for stomach and heart issues -- but through testing other issues have showcased regiments of betterment.
This process was labor intensive, and the facets of the bones regiments are rare, so these are limited!
