St. Johns Wort

COMMON NAME

Standardized: St. John’s wort

BOTANICAL NAME

Hypericum perforatum L.
Plant Family: Clusiaceae

OVERVIEW

Hepericum perforatum is one of many species known commonly as St John’s Wort, and is the species most commonly associated with herbal medicine. It is native to Europe but has since been naturalized to other temperate climates around the world, with particular prominence in North America. The plant is a creeping perennial, producing star-shaped yellow flowers containing long, abundant stamens. St John’s Wort is traditionally harvested near the beginning of the flowering cycle on St John’s Day, which falls annually on June 24th. The flowers continue blooming throughout the summer and may be freely harvested throughout the season.

Considered a holy herb, St John’s Wort was employed for a number of folkloric uses during the Middle Ages. It was once believed that the herb helped to protect people from curses, demons, and lightning.

In contrast to its many uses, some countries have identified St John’s Wort as an invasive species and noxious weed. Though useful to humans, it can be dangerous to livestock, sprouting up in pastures and causing photosensitivity to the grazing animals that feed upon it. Ingestion of the plant may lead to health complications and even death.

St. John’s wort helps promotes a healthy mood and emotional balance.*

USES AND PREPARATIONS

Traditionally used as a tea, sometimes available in tea bags; also used to make a red St. John’s oil for use in liniments and lotions, but only from fresh material. May also be administered as a capsule or extract for convenience.

CONSTITUENTS

Hypericin and related compounds, rutin, bitters, and tannins.

HERBAL MISCELLANY

St John’s Wort is traditionally used to support healthy mood and promote emotional well-being. Numerous clinical trials have studied the efficacy of St John’s Wort in this capacity, with most of them showing positive results that are comparable to conventional treatments.

Patton discovered what was really going on, and spoke about it. The Talmudists killed him, and then wrote the fake history that most now accept as fact.

Strong language here.

Female Guard Brutally Killed by Inmate Serving Life Sentence for Murder

MEGGAN LEE CALLAHAN, RIGHT, BRUTALLY BEATEN INSIDE PRISON.

The idiocracy that puts women into men’s prisons as prison guards ought to be ashamed. Women watch too many (((Hollywood))) movies where 95 pound actresses pretend to manhandle big male brutes. Thats not real life. That’s Hollywood bullsh*t. It kills women.

Daily Mail

A female prison guard is dead in a brutal attack, with the investigation focusing on a convicted murderer serving a life sentence for his previous crimes.

Inmate Craig Wissink, convicted of murder in 2004, is suspected in the Wednesday slaying of Sergeant Meggan Lee Callahan at Bertie Correctional Institution in Windsor, North Carolina.

Callahan, a 29-year-old with four years on the job, was assaulted around 5.30pm and died less than an hour later, despite lifesaving measures by fellow corrections officers, officials said.

CRAIG WISSINK, ALLEGED KILLER.

Trump has admitted 12,218 refugees since Inauguration Day: 1,472 Syrians, 1,359 Somalis

Refugee Resettlement Watch

Since we are coming up on 100 days I was anxious to see how Trump was doing with his campaign promise to (at least) put a moratorium on the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days to review how refugees are vetted and look to assure “extreme vetting” was put in place.

My guess about the flip-flop: His friends in the hotel and food production industries told him they needed this steady supply of low wage refugee laborers whose wages you supplement with welfare payments. Great business model!

Ho hum! Isn’t happening! And, I don’t want to hear of one defender who says he was stymied by judges. He never had to place a refugee slowdown in an Executive Order!  The Refugee Act of 1980 gives the President enormous powers.

Here (below) is a screenshot map of where the 12,218 were placed since Inauguration Day up until this morning’s data…
