As an astringent, agrimony has been used for all sorts of digestive problems, but it is suited to those where tension and relaxation combine to cause incorrect timing of functions.
(Herbalist Mathew Wood) “I have to say that if there is one plant I know for over a decade of clinical experience to have had an effect which is magical—that is, it will change the environment around the person using it—Agrimony is the one.” This remedy also prevents meddling and interference.

Acts as a nervine, sedative. It is an excellent herb for the nervous system and can be thought of as a gentle balancer to the emotions and a calming remedy for times of stress; research has borne out its sedative and anxiolytic properties. It is suitable for calming both children and adults, helping to reduce anxiety and tension in the day and induce sleep at night without side effects of drowsiness or stupor. It can be used to ease depression, restlessness and agitation, and is especially good for people who find it hard to let go and relax and push themselves too hard, often to the point of exhaustion. From an Ayurvedic perspective, California poppy cools heat in the mind by reducing excess sadhaka pitta, and so makes an excellent remedy for irritability, low self-esteem, depression, headaches, insomnia, being overly critical, over-achieving and analytical, and for OCD. As it reduces pitta in the rasa and rakta dhatus, it can be used to relieve palpitations, hypertension and pain from inflammation as in arthritis, shingles, cholecystitis and toothache. With its anulomana action it helps reduce spasm and pain in lower abdomen and so can be used to ease colic and menstrual pain.
California Poppy Seeds
California poppy seed is a natural alternative to pain medication that is non-addictive while producing the same life-changing results. On the March 22 episode of “Dr. Oz,” Dr. Mehmet Oz was joined by guest Bryce Wylde, an expert in alternative medicine. Wylde recommended individuals currently taking prescription pain medication try California poppy seed for relief, stating this natural pain reliever can be just as effective as Percocet and Vicodin. California poppy seed works by telling your brain to increase your opiate receptors, which automatically decreases the pain you feel.

Cleavers is an herb that has been used for centuries and considered one of the best tonics to help drain out the lymphatic system (says Richo Cech in his book “Making Plant Medicine“).

Cleavers also has alterative properties, which means it helps to cleanse and nourish the blood. A perfect combination! Stimulating activity to throw all the nasties out into the bloodstream, and then cleansing the blood thereafter. Double whammy!!

Jaio Gu Lan
Regulate cholesterol Maintain healthy blood pressure levels Improve digestion Enhance heart muscle (especially contractility) Protect and modulate the immune system Protect against free radical damage Regulate hormone levels in men and women Jiaogulan may even help inhibit cancer growth. At its essence, this Chinese herb is an incredible balancing compound. If something (like your cholesterol, for instance) is higher than it should be, it lowers it. And if something is too low, it raises it. Powerful Adaptogen Does Only and Exactly What Your Body Needs The reason jiaogulan can work in such a range of ways in your body is because it’s a powerful adaptogen. All adaptogens — including garlic, ginkgo biloba, and ginseng — are substances that can, once ingested, be adapted by your body in whatever way necessary to restore balance. Only 1 out of every 4,000 plants meets the criteria to be classified as adaptogens, also called biological response modifiers. The criteria for adaptogens — as devised by Russian doctors N.V. Lazarev and I.I. Brekman in the mid-20th century — are: The Chinese herb should cause no harm and place no additional stress on the body The Chinese herb should help the body adapt to many and varied environmental and psychological stresses The Chinese herb must have a nonspecific action on the body, supporting all major systems Jiaogulan may actually be the most powerful adaptogen out there. For example, in studies conducted by Dr. Tsunematsu Takemoto and others over the course of a decade, jiaogulan was found to have 82 saponins (the chemical source of adaptogenesis) compared to 28 found in standard ginseng. Unlike conventional drugs, adaptogens have no side effects, do nothing to disturb the body, and work only when the body requires. Jiaogulan’s adaptogenic properties are especially evident in the way it benefits your brain. Jiaogulan has a biphasic effect on brain functioning, meaning that it can energize or calm the system depending on what’s needed.

While rue has been used for centuries for both culinary and medicinal purposes, as well as in general use as a strewn herb to discourage pests, many modern herbalists suggest that it should not be taken internally. Despite this concern, small amounts of rue are often used in salads, egg dishes and cheeses in Mediterranean countries. It is one of the most well-known of the magical protective herbs and is often used in spells of warding and protection in modern magic.
Sage is used in medicine to help alleviate symptoms of digestive problems and mental disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and depression.
Nutritious – sage is rich in antioxidants (apigenin, diosmetin, and luteolin) and important nutrients, such as vitamin K. In fact, sage has been considered somewhat of a panacea (solution or remedy for all difficulties or diseases) throughout history because of its wide range of uses in cooking and medicine.
Strong Immune System – Sea salt naturally helps you to build up a strong immune system so that you can fight off the cold virus, the fever and flu, allergies and other autoimmune disorders. Alkalizing – Sea salt is alkalizing to the body, as it has not been exposed to high heat and stripped of its minerals, nor does it have any harmful man-made ingredients added to it. Thus it can help you to prevent and reverse high levels of acids in the body, which in turn eliminates the risks for serious and life-threatening diseases. Weight Loss – Believe it or not, but sea salt can also help you in weight loss. It helps the body to create digestive juices so that the foods you eat are digested faster, and it helps to prevent buildup in the digestive tract, which eventually can lead to constipation and weight gain. Skin Conditions – A sea salt bath can help to relieve dry and itchy skin as well as serious conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The bath naturally opens up the pores, improves circulation in the skin and hydrates the tissues so that your skin can heal. Asthma – Sea salt is effective in reducing inflammation in the respiratory system. Thus the production of phlegm is slowed down so that you can breathe easier again. Some say that sprinkling sea salt on the tongue after drinking a glass of water is just as effective as using an inhaler. But the great thing about sea salt is that it has no side effects when taken in moderation. Heart Health – When salt is taken with water it can help to reduce high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and help to regulate an irregular heart beat. Thus sea salt can help to prevent atherosclerosis, heart attacks and strokes. Diabetes – Sea salt can help to reduce the need for insulin by helping to maintain proper sugar levels in the body. Thus the salt is an essential part of the diet if you are diabetic, or at risk for the disease. Osteoporosis – Just over 1/4 of the amount of salt that is in the body is stored in the bones, where it helps to keep them strong. When the body lacks salt and water it begins to draw the sodium from the bones, which then eventually can lead to osteoporosis. Thus by drinking plenty of water and consuming salt in moderation you can prevent osteoporosis. Muscle Spasms – Potassium is essential for helping the muscles to function properly. Sea salt not only contains small amounts of potassium, but it also helps the body to absorb it better from other foods. Thus it is effective in helping to prevent muscle pains, spasms and cramps. Depression – Sea salt also has shown to be effective in treating various types of depression. The salt helps to preserve two essential hormones in the body that help you to better deal with stress. These hormones are serotonin and melatonin, which help you to feel good, and relax and sleep better at night.
Sheep sorrel provides a number of vitamins and minerals. These include about 60 milligrams of vitamin C in 1 cup of chopped leaves and over 5,000 international units of vitamin A, plus small amounts of several B vitamins in the same-size serving. The herb also contains calcium, with about 60 milligrams per cup, and more than 500 milligrams of potassium, along with some magnesium, phosphorus and a small amount of zinc. In addition, sheep sorrel contains a number of natural phytochemicals, including several flavonoids such as quercetin, which have antioxidant properties. It also provides other compounds called anthraquinones, additional antioxidants that can benefit your digestive tract.
Practitioners of herbal medicine recommend consuming fresh sorrel leaves as a mild diuretic to increase urine production by the kidneys. Considered anti-inflammatory, tea brewed from sheep sorrel leaves is an herbal remedy for fever and generalized inflammation. Because of its high vitamin C content, sorrel preparations are also recommended as a preventive for scurvy, a condition caused by a deficiency of the vitamin. Tea made from sorrel plant roots is used in herbal medicine as well, primarily to improve menstrual problems.

Immune system tonic Potent anti-biotic properties most specific for respiratory and urinary problems Usnea has long been used therapeutically in many traditional systems including Chinese, European and Native American herbal medicine.

It is effective against staph, strep, pneumococcus and tuberculosis bacteria. Usnic acid kills bacteria by entering the bacterial cell and disrupting its metabolism. Usnea also has activity against fungi, viruses and amoebas. In addition to its antimicrobial function, usnea has anti-inflammatory and analgesic functions, and it is an immune system enhancer. Medically, usnea can be used in the same way as Echinacea. It is especially beneficial for treating respiratory infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia, and as a supplement to other tuberculosis treatment. It is also useful for colds and flu, strep throat and urinary tract infections.
Yellow Dock Root
Traditionally blood purifier and general detoxifier, especially for the liver. The herb, properly known as Rumex crispus, supports detoxification from a few angles. First off, yellow dock root stimulates bile production, which helps digestion, particularly of fats. Yellow dock root can stimulate a bowel movement to help remove lingering waste from your intestinal tract; it also increases the frequency of urination to assist in toxin elimination. Maintaining an efficient rate of waste elimination can help prevent toxins from accumulating in the liver, gallbladder, and bloodstream and circumvent the associated problems.
