    Thank you for the reminder about allergies and contraindications, ;I.e. medicines that don't play well together.

    What is a good way to sample some of the local plants to see if there will be a bad reaction? Like what was said, you could be the one in one thousand that can't use some common herb, but how can you know without sampling it?

    Should you ingest small quantities? Should you rub some on your skin? Would making a broth and inhaling the vapors be enough?

    Another thing to be cautious about is wilted plants. They can make you very sick or kill you. Use them fresh or dried. Someone I know was in the process of drying some Yarrow. He ended up making some tea from the wilted Yarrow. He thought he was going to have to die to get better.

    Great post and excellent advice. Goes the same for WHERE you collect plants. NEVER use plants gathered along ( within 50') of a well traveled roadway, a railroad right of way or a powerline right of way. Chemicals are used to keep weeds away as well as de ice in winter leach into the ground and are absorbed by the roots. As well as vehicle exhaust being absorbed by the plant leaves as well make the plants possibly toxic.

    Yes these are are all remedies that use natural sources and some people might be allergic or have bad reactions. But the reason they are still around is that they work for the vast majority of people and have for hundreds if not thousands of years. Homeopathic and home remedies are in nearly every case safe for people to use but as Snow Walker said some people cannot use them.

    started a topic Be careful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Be careful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There are many things that are 150% safe to use when it comes to wilderness medicines or edibles. However, problems can occur with something that is totaly safe for one person and not another depending upon different medical conditions, medication a person is on and allergy issues.

    It's no different then store bought food and medication interactions.

    Please be safe!
