Bloodroot juice can be used as a sorethroat remidy. I did this once..

And last, but not least is the cattail. From shelter to medicine, it provides it all. The pollen can be used directly on a cut to control bleeding. The root flour when mixed with hot water, does well to relieve the trots. The stickey sap at the basel end of the leaves is highly antiseptic and will stop toothache pain nearly on contact.

I know that those of you that are reading this probably have alot of other uses for the plants, but as I said, I am only writing about which I have experience. I am learning all the time, it seems that each time I am out either alone or with trusted friends, I add to this knowlage. I hope the paper has shown one or two of you something that you didnít know before or reminded you of something long forgotten. If it has, I think I done well, fer a pilgrim.
