Survival medicine 101: Three natural remedies for pain relief, infections and for improving heart health
(Natural News) Herbs and plants make for potent medicines and holistic treatments for a range of ailments, from muscle pain to bacterial infections. These natural remedies also do not cause harmful side effects like drugs and are cost-efficient to boot.
In one of his recent articles published online, prepper and natural medicine proponent Claude Davis shared three of his grandfather’s most potent remedies made using medicinal plants. These remedies succeed despite the failures of modern medication to treat the same health issues, said Davis.
He also noted that each of these remedies performs for a particular purpose. One helps neutralize pain, another combats life-threatening bacterial infections and the last eliminates cholesterol plaque, a major biomarker for heart disease.
Potent natural remedies
The three remedies are made from plants that can be found in abundance throughout the U.S. These plants include Cotyledon tomentosa, Usnea barbata and Crataegus oxyacantha. Read on to learn about the in-depth benefits of and preparation methods used for each one.
Angry bear paw
According to Davis, his grandfather had used this first remedy to either treat hurt soldiers on the battlefield or ease the pain of dying ones. His grandfather had learned it from a Native American healer adept at using medicinal plants and remedies.
It involves using the leaves of bear’s paw (C. tomentosa), a plant endemic to South Africa. Davis’ grandfather ground and boiled the leaves and kept stirring until he had a dark and viscous substance.
He strained it and then left it to simmer for another three to four hours until the substance became darker and thicker. This can then be consumed as is like cough syrup for fast-acting relief from intense pain.
