Horsetail - Kidneys,
Common Names: Scourbrush, Nerve Root, American Valerian, Shavegrass.
Parts Used: The plant.
Bodily Influences: Horsetail, also known as Shavegrass, bears the reputation of "surgeon without a knife." When rolled between the fingers, the stems of the plant reveal its true nature of containing silicon, the same material which makes sand and crystals strong and resilient. This natural crystalline structure not only supports the body and gives it a smooth finish, but acts as an internal surgeon to shave away unworthy tissues and slough them off. When the body structure is thus renewed it has greater integrity and elasticity.

Replace with gold or inert composites. In the study of the eye, called Iridology, when discolored rings occur around the outer edge of the blue or brown part of the eye(s), it is called a scurf rim.
