Project On Government Oversight (POGO)


From massive Pentagon spending bills written in secret to attacks on independent oversight offices, the past several months have shown us just how important it is to have independent watchdogs holding our government accountable.

That’s why POGO is working every day to make our government more open, transparent, and effective. But as we strategize ways to confront new and urgent challenges, we need to hear what’s most important to you.

Take the survey to let us know: What do you think is the most important thing we can do to create open and honest government?

Cut wasteful spending

Protect whistleblowers

Strengthen oversight

Close ethics loopholes


Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

In a busy practice covering over twenty-five years and tens of thousands of clients, a person learns what remedies are of invaluable service. I would like to share my selection – herbs I choose and herbs that choose me.

I. The Indispensable Blood Remedy.

In order to effectively treat disease we have to be able to decongest blood associated with inflammation, thin stagnant, congealed blood, tone the veins, stimulant the capillaries and arteries, and move the blood to or from the surface. Yarrow, the great ‘normalizer’ of the blood does all these things.

II. The Indispensable Water Remedy.

In order to control dryness and hardness, we have to be able to move in water to moisten and soften. There is no better remedy than Marshmallow, the great mucilage and emollient.

III. The Indispensable Oil Remedy.

In addition to water, the body needs oil. Burdock increases the bile secretion to digest oily foods better, increases oil uptake and liver processing of lipids, and distributes lipids to the skin, hair, tissues, adrenals, and steroids and hormonal system.

IV. The Indispensable Relaxant.

We always need a remedy to relax tension and remove ‘wind’ or constriction and in this agrimony is inferior to none. Intensify by combining 7 parts agrimony to 4 parts Solomon’s seal. Works well with the nervines.

V. The Indispensable Nerve Rebuilder.

It is always necessary, in some cases, to sedate and calm a deeply vexed and worn out nervous system. The best remedy for this is borage, though it has been nearly forgotten in North America. It can be used in combination with burdock to rebuild the adrenals.

VI. The Indispensable Nerve Sedative.

In addition to sedating and calming the nervous system on a deep level, as we are able to do with borage, we need to be able to calm and relax conditions of mild nervousness and upset. The sour lemon balm is cooling, in addition to relaxing, and therefore sedates through reducing the excitation of heat as well as nervousness.

VII. The Indispensable Muscular and Skeletal Remedy.

Men and women are subject to injury of the locomotive system upon which they rely for movement. Thus, we must be able to repair damage to the connective tissue – bones, cartilage, joints – and trueSolomon’s seal is the best.

VIII. The Indispensable Cooling Remedy.

It is always necessary to sedate heat and excitation and for this purpose no remedies surpass the rose family. Peach, a member of this clan, is particularly beneficial because it is cooling and moistening, a therapeutic action often needed since heat often causes dryness.

IX. The Indispensable Drying Remedy.

In order to control tissue that is prolapsed or collapsed and leaking fluids we need a reliable astringent. Sumach is the best medicine for stopping the outflow of fluids via the kidneys, skin, colon, lungs, and other channels of elimination.

X. The Indispensable Warming Remedy.

It is necessary to warm up as well as cool down, and none is as easily accessable, safe, and widely effective as the common ginger. It is also a good liniment for spasmed muscles.

XI. Indispensable Herbs for First Aide.

Herbal First Aid for Cuts, Lacerations, Bruises, Burns, Boils, Broken Bones, Bites. Herbs have affinities to certain phases of wound healing and different types of wounds. Therefore, they can accelerate the process of healing beyond what people would imagine. There are herbs to draw out dirt and pus from wounds, close the lips of clean wounds, prevent the development of excessive scar tissue, remove it after it has developed, reduce proud flesh, reduce nerve damage, regenerate lost tissue, make threatened amputation unnecessary, and so forth.

AGRIMONY TINCTURE OR OIL, USES, And : A bonus $5 gift card to start your week


Agrimony is a member of the rose family native to temperate regions of the globe. It has a history of moderate use in Europe, China, and North America. It has properties similar to its close cousin cinquefoil (Potentilla spp.). The latter was generally more popular in folk medicine due to the resemblance the five leaves have to the fingers. Both Agrimonia and Potentilla are astringents which improve tissue tone, but they have also been used to relieve tension – both were used for the tense intermittent chills of malaria back to the time of Dioscorides. They can be used fairly interchangeably. It is in tension that their properties manifest most completely. Agrimony contains tannins, flavonoids, coumarins, polysaccharides, small amounts of glycosidal bitters, and minerals (including silicon). The American species can be substitued for the European – I think it is a little more sweet and aromatic than the European.


Agrimony is a superlative remedy for tension. This indication, originated by Dr. Edward Bach, holds true on both the mental and physical levels, for both the flower essence and the herbal preparation. It is for the person who tries to hide his or her tension behind a false facade of suave sophistication or cheerfulness. He denies the pain with a smile. The phrase ‘torturedly cheerful’ is expressive of the appearance. In other instances, agrimony people like speed and danger to excape from their pain(Bach). Such activities push the agrimony person into an excess sympathetic condition which masks the deeper pain and gets them stuck there. Bach also says there can be abuse of drugs, alcohol, and stimulants to excape the pain. The problem often revolves around business and hierarchical relations (employee/employer). The person feels ‘caught in a bind.’

Agrimony is a specific in any condition where the person holds the breath to stop the pain. This causes the release of endorphins – the body’s own opiates – which suppress pain. Agrimony people need to learn to ‘breath through’ the pain. As a consequence, the respiratory apparatus is affected. Agrimony is suited to conditions where the person is ‘tortured to capture the breath,’ as Dr. Bach noted. “Agrimonia exerts a specific influence upon mucous membranes, checking profuse secretion and favoring normal activity. This action has suggested its usefulness in chronic bronchitis and in phthisis” (John William Fyfe, 1909, 355). Samuel Henry (1814, 12) treats us to a case history. “I knew a man at Flat brook, near Sussex [New Jersey]. who informed me that he had spent near three hundred pounds with Dr. Kanady, without receiving any benefit; but by drinking the decoction of agrimony root. . . was perfectly cured of his asthmatic complaint.” Dr. J. V. Cerney (1976) also used agrimony root for bronchitis. He mentions a child with unstoppable coughing, night and day, until he turned blue. Cured with agrimony root. I have several times used agrimony leaf with success for bronchitis and asthma, or for conditions elsewhere in the body which cause the person to hold the breath to stop the pain.

One would think that as an astringent agrimony was purely for relaxation, and hence for diarrhea and excessive urination, as it has been traditionally used. However, David Hoffmann provides the context. For example, agrimony is suited to problems when they arise in children who are having trouble with toilet training. So there is tension combined with symptoms of relaxation.

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. This element of the picture is developed by Dorothy Hall (1987, 78). It is suited to diarrhea, as are all astringents, but especially to cases where there are loose, floating stools with fats in them due to irregular or deficient discharges of bile and poor digestion of fats and oils. Acting further back up into the hepatic apparatus, it is good for hepatitis and cirrhosis from chronic alcoholism or food poisoning, with faulty fat metabolism, and irregular expulsion of bile. There may be ulceration of the bowels, blood in the stool and bloody hemorrhoids.

Circulation to the liver, gallbladder and gastrointestinal are off so that the hepatic cells do not receive the correct amount of ‘live giving’ arterial blood when they receive the dose of toxin ladden blood from the portal vein and the intestines – at least, this is my picture of the situation. Consequently, there are liver problems, allergies, skin rashes and wasting (due to poor liver anabolism and catabolism of proteins and fats). Scudder notes that there is cirrhosis beginning in the lower parts of the liver, where the input of blood from the hepatic artery is less direct. Tension and suppressed anger are emotions associated with the liver and gallbladder, East and West.

Agrimony acts strongly on the kidneys, a situation Dorothy Hall attributes to the presence of silica in the plant. The leaves “are found by experience to be good in the diabetes and incontinence of urine” (John Hill, 1740, 55). Peter Smith, an “Indian doctor” in Ohio, considered it indicated for incontinence following the passage of stones. Dr. John Scudder writes, “Given a pain in the region of the kidneys, and I always think of agrimonia as the remedy. In my practice I have seen wonderful results from it, in cases of months’ and years’ duration, and when everything had failed. I have found other uses for it, but this has been so prominent that I always associate the medicine and the position of the pain.” He considered it specific in “pointing pains” in the kidneys, from any cause.

“Among neuralgias, nephralgia is one of the severest. It is torture that might be borne for an hour or a day; but continued night and day for a fortnight or a month, the sufferer may well pray fro relief or death. It varies in cause, in some a well-defined lithemia [stones], in others there is absolutely nothing to be determined wrong with the urine.”

“It is one of those singular remedies that follow the specific indications sharply; and the indication is, pain in the region of the kidneys, especially of the right side” (Scudder, quoted by Fyfe, 1909, 355-56).

Agrimony helps relieve the pain accompanying passage of gravel. Peter Smith (1812) used it for leaky bladder following the passage of kidney stones – here we see perfectly the idea of an astringent used for problems caused by tension. John Wesley (1791) recommended agrimony tea at breakfast for three months to prevent the return of kidney stones.

One of my students found it very unpleasant to pick agrimony because it produced symptoms she called soroche (Spanish for altitude sickness). “You feel really tired, like you want to be lower – like from the bed to the floor. You’re digestion just stops. You get a queazy/nauseous feeling. Gas builds up, but you might get diarrhea.”

Agrimony Herb

Preparation and dosage:

It is best to pick the leaves off the sides of the stem, leaving the leader to go into seed, in early summer, before flowering. Harvested after flowering they are less sweet and more astringent (Matthew Wood). An old Southern manuscript notes that a “strong odor” is desirable (Moss, 1999, 169). This is true. Harvest from many different sites to insure full range of properties (Dorothy Hall). Dose of the tincture: 1-15 drops, 1-3x/day (Matthew Wood), or 1-2 drams to 4 ounces of water (Rolla Thomas).

De ce este bine să porți bijuterii de argint… Atragi doar lucruri bune în viața ta!

Razvan Miulescu 28 May 2018

Argintul atrage bunăstare și sănătate

Argintul atrage bunăstare și sănătate – Dacă până acum aţi avut impresia că rolul bijuteriilor de argint este unul pur estetic, acest articol cu siguranţă vă va arăta cum să le preţuiţi mai mult.

Beneficiile remarcabile ale acestui metal preţios au fost apreciate încă din antichitate. Vechii indieni purtau bijuterii din argint pentru a scăpa de migrene şi pentru a-şi îmbunătăţi aura.

În timpul bătăliilor din Grecia Antică, rănile soldaților se vindecau mai repede cu ajutorul unor unguente ce conțineau argint. În Roma Antică, nobilii foloseau tacâmuri şi veselă din argint întrucât erau convinşi că îi fereşte de otrăvuri.

Argintul atrage bunăstare și sănătate – Iată câteva motive să aduceţi argintul în viaţa dumneavoastră:

1. Argintul are efecte incredibile asupra apei

Ştiaţi că pentru a ameliora setea, atunci când nu se poate bea nimic, puteţi ţine în gură un obiect de argint?


Apa şi vinul celor bogaţi erau păstrate în vase de argint, iar aceştia utilizau în mod frecvent tacămuri, farfurii şi pahare de argint.

Păstrată astfel, apa are calităţile unui antibiotic natural foarte eficient.

În timpul secolului trecut, fermierii americani obişnuiau să pună monede de argint de un dolar în găleţile cu lapte proaspăt, cu scopul de a-i încetini procesul de acrire.

Rezultatele experimentelor doctorului Henry Margraff au demonstrat faptul că argintul are capacitatea de a distruge în doar şase minute peste 650 de microorganisme, virusuri şi bacterii.

Tocmai de aceea, în prezent, este utilizat la fabricarea filtrelor din rezervoarele de apă ale avioanelor şi navetelor spaţiale, pentru a ajuta la eliminarea germenilor..

2. Argintul are efecte remarcabile asupra stării de spirit

Ne întăreşte emoţiile, activează intuiţia, stimulează activitatea cerebrală (purtat împreună cu o piatră de amazonit) şi absoarbe energia negativă.

Bijuteriile din argint pot calma nevozitatea excesivă, stresul, iritabilitatea, sensibilitatea şi durerile de cap.


3. Încetineşte îmbătrânirea

Ionii de argint au un puternic efect imunomudulator, de aceea este tot mai utilizat în industria cosmetică.

4. Contribuie la scăderea tensiunii arteriale şi normalizează activitatea inimii.

5. Purtarea unui inel de argint pe degetul arătător ajută la normalizarea tractului intestinal.

6. Ne scapă de deochi.

Purtarea unei cruciuliţe la gât sau a unui bănuţ în portofel ne apără de energiile negative.

7. Amplifică senzualitatea feminină

Argintul este Yin, este asociat cu Luna şi cu esenţa feminină, vechii alchimişti îl considerau a fi metalul zeilor.

8. Vindecă rănile

Este foarte eficient în cazul infecţiilor.

Încă din Egiptul Antic se utiliza ca antibiotic natural şi era mai valoros decât aurul.

Înainte de descoperirea antibioticelor, chirurgii suturau rănile pacienţilor cu fire din argint.

Argintul este cel mai eficient tratament de eliminarea a germenilor şi de vindecare în cazul arsurilor severe – eliberează spontan ioni negativi, cu acţiune germicidă, de aceea este utilizat şi pentru a purifica apa din piscine, în locul clorului.

9. Este utilizat la confecţionarea instrumentelor medicale, a protezelor.

Chiar şi acum, în stomatologie se foloseşte cu succes la realizarea pivoţilor endodontici.

10. Intensifică efectele benefice ale pietrelor preţioase

Acesta este motivul pentru care bijuteriile de argint se realizează prin îmbinarea cu pietre preţioase sau semipreţioase.

Este bine ca argintul să fie purtat în combinaţie cu pandantive realizate din pietre preţioase sau semipreţioase, în special amazonit, ametist sau turcoaz.

Având în vedere toate acestea, atunci când achiziţionaţi o bijuterie din argint, este bine să verificaţi sursa acesteia, calitatea şi să ţineţi cont de piatra preţioasă sau semipreţioasă pe care o conţine.
