Before we had modern pharmaceuticals, people used botanical drugs for many serious health problems. These toxic or mildly toxic herbs often became the basis for Western drugs. We're going to discuss some of these remedies and how one would be able to safely harvest or use them in an emergency situation. Some of the plants we'll discuss include foxglove, lily of the valley, nightshade, datura, arnica, belladonna, henbane, poke, caster bean, and bloodroot. We'll also talk about poisonous plants to recognize and avoid.
