Robert W. Pelton
Modern medicine borrows heavily from plants in the never ending quest for improved remedies.
Of all the prescription drugs sold in the United States, an
American Indians, by necessity, developed a vast expertise in plant medicines.
And early settlers from England and Western Europe brought to the New World their knowledge of medical treatment with plants.
Herbal home remedies were handed down in those families over many generations.
In Colonial days, no drugstores could be found on street corners and few, if any, trained doctors.
People were forced to rely on homemade medicines.
It goes without saying that the greatest pharmacy in the world is found in plants scattered throughout the countryside.
When properly used, these plants have incredibly effective medicinal properties.
Plants can and should be utilized when faced with an emergency medical situation or where survival may be in question.
It doesn't take a genius to understand the one most important aspect of surviving. It's having access to drinkable water! Without water a person can't live more than three days.
The second most important thing is food! Men have been known to live more than a month without food. But there's absolutely no need for any person to be deprived of something to eat. Nature is and always has been a good and reliable provider. Everyone should know how to properly use her. Learn to live off the land. It really isn't that difficult.
