14. Look for the Meds!
All medications seemingly began with some sort of property that originated from a plant. Since we know medications are all around us, we shouldn’t overlook them when we’re in need. One of the biggest ways to survive when lost is to know about various medicinal plants native to your area.
Always be aware of the environment you are in. For example, in the United States, there are plants like Yellowroot and the Broadleaf Plantain that both have medicinal properties. Broadleaf acts as an aid to gastrointestinal distress, plus they are good in salads too. Meanwhile, Yellowroot is helpful for things like infections, it also helps get rid of mouth sores, and acts as a sedative when used with other medicinal plants. Both of these can be critical finds to aid you in the wild.
