Sweet Fern

Check out my YouTube video: Sweet Fern .

Sweet Fern (Comptonia peregrina) is an excellent survival resource. Great for when you aren’t feeling well, Sweet Fern helps with an upset stomach, headache and congestion. Make a mild tea and sweeten with honey if you desire. I think it’s pretty good as it is. sweet-fern-2

It is, despite it’s name, not a Fern, rather it is a member of the Bayberry Family. It’s woody stem has a pine flavor, so I tend to make sure I use only the leaves.

The leaves produce a slight numbing effect and can help alleviate toothache pain until you can properly treat it. Packed with nutrition, as most edible wild plants are, a hot Sweet Fern tea can be a real boost on a cold day.

Burning the plants makes for a pleasant incense and even helps to repel mosquitoes. Native Americans also used it to line their baskets to help keep berries fresh.sweet-fern-1

Quite often found in the same areas Blueberries are found, many people associate the sweet aroma of Sweet Fern with Blueberries, though they are unrelated.

A very easy plant to identify, Sweet Fern is certainly one to become familiar with and add it to your survival plant list.

As with anything that you consume, make sure you are 100% certain you have identified it correctly before you use it.

Hidden Gems

One of the fun things about foraging or studying wild plants is that you always find hidden gems. spiderI believe this spider is a Cross Orb Weaver. It doesn’t have an obvious cross pattern, but my understanding is that the patterns vary greatly and don’t always create a cross. I’m hardly a spider expert. If you have information or can more accurately identify this one, please leave a comment. It was about as big around as a nickle. Maybe a little larger.

I found this one living under the leaf canopy of a Sow Thistle Plant.

Sow Thistle is not a true Thistle. Any self respecting true Thistle has needle sharp, blood drawing stickers on them. sow-thistleSome Sow Thistles, as there are many varieties do have pickers but none so stiff and sharp as true ones. The Sow Thistle is however edible. It’s in the same Astereae family as the Dandelion and Sunflower.

Young leaves can be eaten fresh in salads and even taste a bit like lettuce. After they get a bit too bitter, use them as a pot herb. They are highly nutritious and delicious.

As always, make sure you have 100% identification that what you are eating is safe.

Just my opinion, I wouldn’t eat the spider raw or cooked.

Wild Plants that Ease Pain

This is a tough one. The reason is, there are so many sources of pain and many many ways of treating it. For instance, having stomach cramps, a sore throat, a wound or injury, sinusitis, or a head ache from a multitude of reasons. Many times, relieving pain has more to do with treating the cause than it does taking a pain reliever. In nature, that is likely more often the case, than not. In other words, pain, in nature, is more of a fact of life then it is at home, with a drug store nearby.

If disaster strikes and you find a convenient supply of Ibuprofen and other drugs are not in reach, then you will need to know how to take care of yourself and loved ones. Part of pain relief will begin at prevention. Make sure your hands are clean before eating to prevent stomach issues. Make sure you are eating the best food you can. I suspect getting proper exercise will become the norm rather than the exception. Don’t take unnecessary risk in order to prevent injury. Don’t wander out into a 40 degree rain.

With all the prevention in the world, things are still going to happen. That is why the second and extremely important second step is not just important, but absolutely crucial. Prepare for treating medical issues. The time for preparing for medical treatment is when the supply exist.

In Michigan, there are some treatments available in the middle of January, but really, if you wait until then, you are WAY behind the 8 ball. Things like Slippery Elm for sore throats and stomach issues are available, however, identifying Slippery Elm in the dead of winter is tough. You should have harvested your supply when the leaves were on the tree to make it more identifiable. There are other plants available as well under the snow, but finding them becomes tough. Mullein for a cough is available, but tougher to find than in August. In other words, harvest medicinal plants when they are plentiful and easy to find.

Like always, I encourage further study and remind to make 100% identification a priority. Many times, plants loose some potency after drying and fresh is almost always better, but you aren’t going to find most plants fresh in the winter, so dried is the next best thing. Also, the plants I list are only suggestions of the many available. Maybe you don’t have these in your area?? Self study is a must.

Here are some that I believe should be available anywhere in Michigan and the Great Lakes Region.

The 3 following have salicylic acid in them, which, is the chemical aspirin was developed from.

There are so many other plants that are useful that it would take a rather large book to describe them all. Not only that, the plants listed above have more healing qualities than listed above. The reason why I approached a blog on pain relief in this way, again, because for the most part, relieving pain has more to do with treating the cause than popping pain relievers. There are some pain relievers that exist in Nature, but not like in the pharmacy. Pain in nature is not exactly a bad thing anyways. Without it, you won’t know you have an issue. Relieving the pain by treating the cause, lets you know when you are healthy again. When the pain goes away, it’s because the issue that caused it, has been successfully treated.

Plants That Relax You

The last post was on plants that heal. This post will describe a few plants that have the ability to relax or act as a mild sedative. That can be very important in today’s stressful atmosphere.

I’m sure we have all heard of Chamomile Tea being very relaxing and a good night time drink. It’s true, it is. But, what many people don’t know is that it is likely growing in a field near them.

German Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) or Wild Chamomile is the most common found in nature.

Roman Chamomile might also be found. There are many varieties but those two are the most common. The easiest way to distinguish it from a Daisy is the center which tends to be flat topped in Daisy’s. The Chamomile center is more mounded. Also the Chamomile petals angle back as the flower matures like a cone flower, whereas the Daisy petals typically remain flat.


Chamomile contains the flavonoid apigenin which is known to reduce anxiety and promote relaxation. Chamomile has other constituents that promote health as well, but this post is on relaxing. I recommend further study. Chamomile is an excellent healthful plant.

Wild Lettuce (Lactuca virosa) as described in an earlier post can be a powerful sedative if processed. As a tea it is an excellent relaxant. It can be a bit bitter, but with honey and a touch of lemon it is very drinkable. Refer to the earlier blog for more detailed information.

St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatumis another herb that reduces anxiety and even depression. The herb is easily found in the pharmacy supplement isle. What many people don’t know is that it is also easily found in nature.

St. John's Wort

St. John’s Wort

It is well known and has been used since ancient times. There are numerous constituents in St. John’s Wort that act to reduce anxiety.

I never intend to overwhelm with information and always encourage further study. As with any information on any herb, please verify and study other sources. Make sure your identification is spot on before using any plant in or on your body.

I suggest that you put these three plants on your list of plants to learn. They have many other uses other than what is mentioned here.

Now you have 3 plants that heal and three plants that relax. The next post will describe plants that provide pain relief.

Plants that Heal

In the following series of post, I will show you some of the best plants that can be found in Michigan for various uses. In this case, 3 Plants that Heal. There are others, but these 3 are very effective, grow in large quantities and are easy to identify.

You never know when you will need to use a wild plant for an emergency situation. Anytime you don’t have immediate access to first aid kits or an emergency room, you are in a position that you might need the assistance of Mother Nature.

My family has used these plants even when modern first aid was available. Why? Because they work…even better than what you can buy. Use common sense please. Some wounds need medical attention…period! No plant can take the place of stitches, proper irrigation, or prescribed antibiotics when needed.

Yarrow: Possibly the best astringent in Nature or on the pharmacy shelves. An astringent contracts body tissue. The result is, it will stop bleeding. Use Yarrow on an open wound to stop the bleeding.

Yarrow is also an excellent anti-bacterial and anti-microbial. It will not only stop the bleeding, but promote healing. It’s been known as a healing herb since ancient times and was even named after Achilles. Achilles was kept safe from harm in battle by being submerged in Yarrow by his mother. The problem was, his mom didn’t submerge his heal which Paris shot him in. Bleeding to death, Achilles left his names sake to your heal…the Achilles Heal. The scientific name for Yarrow is Achillea millefolium named after the man it protected and the water plant, Milfoil, which its leafs resemble. We have used yarrow on a sprained ankle. Yarrow is useful at reducing swelling and bruising. My buddy, Chris, also used it on a blister that resulted from a broken down walking shoe. 7 miles into a 10 mile walk, he was in major pain. Using a Yarrow poultice, held in place by his socks, he was able to walk the final 3 miles relatively pain free. The blister healed amazingly fast according to Chris and it never game him problems after. Available in June through August. If you have a good sustainable patch, pick some to dehydrate for use through out the year. Makes an excellent tea.

Plantain: An extremely good astringent. Maybe second only to Yarrow. Use Plantain (Plantago major or minor) on any open wound to stop bleeding. It is also a very good anti-bacterial and microbial.

Without question Plantain is a good plant to know in an emergency. My family has used it on open wounds with great success. Not only to stop the bleeding but to promote healing. We have used it after a pulled tooth to stop the profuse bleeding. We have also used it on bee stings. It works very good. The pain and itching was relieved almost immediately and the relief was permanent. We also use it in a sun burn solution that eases the burning pain very quickly. You can find that recipe in earlier posts. Because of its effectiveness, but also its availability, Plantain is actually my number one healing plant. It was so important to the settlers that the Native Americans called it “White Mans foot print”. They knew that where ever white man was, Plantain would soon be growing. Available most of the year. Narrow leaf can even be found under the snow. A very good and nutritious edible.

Purple Dead Nettle: Lamium purpureum, resembles nettles and therefore it’s namesake. It is actually a Mint. Purple Dead NettlePurple Dead Nettle is probably best known as an anti-allergen, but it is also an effective astringent. Press the succulent stems between your fingers and drip the juice into the wound. It is also an effective anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Available in abundance in the Spring, dry some for later use. My family loves it as a tea, so I dry extra for that reason. That way, I have some on hand for emergencies and just to relax with a nice pleasant tea.

As mentioned above. Use common sense when it comes to treating wounds. If the wound is serious enough, use these wild plants as a temporary solution. Get the injured to a medical facility ASAP. Make sure you know 100% that you have the right plant. Also before applying any plant to an open wound, make sure the plant is as clean as possible. Don’t use contaminated material on your body.

Wild Lettuce for Food and Medicine

If I were to tell you that Wild Lettuce (Lactuca virosa) has 8 times the Vitamin C as does domestic Iceberg Lettuce, you might be impressed. You should be anyways. Maybe you would be interested to know that rubber can be made from the white latex in the stem and roots?

The fact is, the docile, normal, average, bland lettuce from the store, that graces our salad dish and adds a bit of crunch to a sandwich, came from the vitamin packed nutritional power puncher.

I find it interesting that Wild Lettuce was bred to be less bitter and more palatable. They succeeded, but the results was that it is also less healthy and less medicinal…a lot less. But, here is the interesting thing, while the bitter was bred out of Wild Lettuce, to make it more palatable, bitter greens are a very popular addition to a salad. Kind of an oxymoron to me. Lactuca_virosa_-_Köhler–s_Medizinal-Pflanzen-213

Wild Lettuce drawing by Franz Eugen Köhler, Köhler’s Medizinal-Pflanzen 

Thankfully, lettuce in Nature is still the good ole power packed vegetable that our ancestors took advantage of. I get the attraction to a mild leaf or head lettuce. I enjoy it myself, but take a minute the next time you are out doors and run across some Wild Lettuce to pick some of the tender leaves. Add a leaf or two to your sandwich or salad. It’s even good in a soup. The nutritional benefit will be worth it.

Wild Lettuce is also a great sedative. I can get into the details, but sometimes its easier for people to just remember the basics. It is known as Opium Lettuce for a reason. It takes some processing to get the more powerful effects, but I don’t really advocate doing that and therefore won’t supply that information here. If you are interested in the process for survival reasons, use the contact page and request it. I’ll send it to you directly.

As a survival tool, the tar resulting from the process can be smoked to put an injured or severely upset person to sleep. But I think it would be better for a young person to leave alone unless medically needed.

That being said, a tea from the leaves can be an effective sedative. I would recommend not drinking the tea if you are about to drive or operate machinery. The effects are different on everyone. Some people it is just relaxing, others can become quite sleepy.

Wild Lettuce can be effective against urinary tract issues, coughs, asthma, restlessness, menstrual pain, and muscle and joint pain. The latex can be applied topically to kill germs.

Good organic domesticated vegetables aren’t all bad. But, the original is almost always better. It takes a little effort, but the benefits are worth it. Consider this though. If things get bad for you and life becomes an exercise in survival, having wild edible knowledge in your bag of tricks will make life much easier. Knowing about Wild Lettuce would be a pretty good start.

Feed the Poor with Purslane

Walking down the sidewalk near downtown Grand Rapids Mi, my wife and I saw large amounts of beautiful, healthy Purslane (Portulaca oleracea) growing along a fence line.

Purslane- photographer unknown

On the same walk, we saw a couple homeless men shading themselves under a bridge and a woman on the corner panhandling. I don’t know their stories and I’m sure they have many. One story of which I’m sure they can tell has to do with finding food. I can hear people now talk about their bad choices, alcoholism or that the panhandler makes more money then they do. Maybe, I don’t know, but this I do know. Most Americans are just one financial disaster away from shading themselves under a bridge or asking strangers for handouts.

Something else I’m aware of. 1 of 7 people in Kent County, where Grand Rapids is located, and 1 in 5 children, are nutritionally hungry. On our walk, not only did we see Purslane, but also Wild Lettuce, Dandelion, Chicory, Lambs Quarters, Wood Sorrel, Wild Grape Vines and Plantain. Probably more that I don’t remember, all of which are nutritionally superior to most vegetables at the grocery store.

So why are people still struggling with the most basic of needs? I would surmise that most of the reasons have to do with lost knowledge. Our ancestors knew about those sources of nutrients and they took advantage of them.

Look at the following chart that shows the nutritive value per 100 g of Purslane. That equals about 3.5 oz for those of us not familiar with grams. I challenge you to find better results for the same amount of any vegetable in the store.

If you provide a service to those in need, please reach out to us on our contact page. We will be happy to work with you to provide valuable information on how to improve nutritional health in your community.

5 Top Survival Plants

There are a lot of plants that could be in the top 5, but I think its important to narrow it down. Knowing 5 plants that are useful for food, medicine or utility can save you in a survival situation. So Iv’e thought about which ones I would choose to study if I were limited in time. Knowing these 5 plants extremely well will get you through.

Here is the criteria that I used. The plant had to be very recognizable, safe, multi purpose, easily attainable, and had a long season.

Perhaps the most recognizable plant is the Dandelion. 20160421_161406One of the earliest blooms in the Spring, it is the most prolific early in the season, but, it is available all summer and most of the fall as well. Every part of the plant is edible. Early in the year, the fresh leaves are even delicious boiled. Dandelion roots make a very good coffee substitute. The flowers make a wonderful syrup and the leaves are extraordinarily nutritious. Remember this is survival. So even if the plant you find is past it’s prime, it is still edible and very good for you. Extremely high in Vitamins C and K, Dandelion is great for detoxifying the liver, gall bladder, bladder and kidneys. Cooking it will help take the late season bitterness out, but in a pinch, eat it raw, flower blossoms, stems, leaves and roots.

The second on my list would be the Plantain. Not the banana, but Plantago Major and Minor, or Broad Leaf Plantain and Narrow Leaf Plantain. Both are very easy to recognize.


Broad Leaf Plantain

Note the major veins that run from the stem to the apex of the leaf.  Pull the leaf from the stem and notice the fibers that stretch out and break. Both varieties will do this.

Plantain is crazy good for you. Boiled like collard greens, it can provide a delicious meal. Narrow Leaf Plantain can even survive the winter if it is mild enough. Both are plentiful through out the warmer months.

Medicinally it is considered a panacea meaning its a cure all. Especially good to stop bleeding, it also has anti bacterial and microbial properties. It’s also very good at relieving bee stings. Basically, if you are suffering from something, Plantain is worth a try. It’s a major reason Native Americans called it “white man’s foot print”. The settlers depended on it so much that where ever there was a white man, Plantain was sure to be there as well.

This one might surprise you. The Common Purple Violet. The reason is that it is available all year. You can dig through the snow in forest areas and still find green edible leaves that are very high in vitamins.


Violets also contain Salicylic Acid. The same compound that Aspirin was developed from. Violet leaves and flowers can be eaten raw making for a very recognizable, available edible. You can also use it to treat stomach ailments as well as gargle a tea for sore throats. The main reason I chose it though, as there are other plants that might be a better choice if available, is the simple fact that you can find it in the dead of winter in sufficient quantities to make it worth digging for.  Look for dense patches in small wooded areas. They tend to thrive in areas that the growth isn’t too mature. Though you can find it on the mature forest floor as well.

The forth plant is the Mullein. The reason for this is, the leaves are available year around. In a clearing, look for the tall spikes from last years bloom. winter MulleinLocate them and nearby will be the rosettes on the ground. Just dig around the snow East of the plant stalks that you have found. You should find some nearby.

Mullein is not edible, but it is drinkable. The leaves fuzziness renders them unpalatable as a vegetable, but as mentioned it makes a pleasant tea. One that is full of nutrients. Just what you need any time of year in a survival situation.

Drinking the tea is also a very effective decongestant. Even smoking the dried leaves is thought to be an effective treatment for a cough.

The seeds should not be consumed as they contain Saponins. A compound the Native Americans used to kill small fish in calm pools. Another survival tool.

Maybe one of the most important traits of Mullein is in the dead stalks. The pithy center burns for a very long time allowing you to carry fire from one location to another. That can be a life saver if fire is difficult to obtain.

The final plant to know might also surprise you. The Birch Tree. Yes, it is a plant. What makes birch so valuable is it’s versatility. You can eat the spring leaves or make a very nice tea from them. You can tap the tree like it were a Maple in the spring and drink the sap. The sap can also be boiled to make syrup and sugar, though not as efficient as the Maple. The sap was drank by Native Americans to detox their bodies after a long hard winter of a poorer diet.

The dead bark can easily  catch fire and burns hot enough to get other tinder burning. It will even light somewhat wet. The importance of that is an understatement when you are wet and cold. The bark can be scored into rectangles around the tree and stripped off. The bark is water proof. Heating it makes it pliable and the bark can be used to make containers and shelters. Heck, Native Americans even make canoes out it.White Birch 2

The Birch was likely the most important plant to the Great Lakes Tribes. The reason was is that it helped them survive. Get the hint?

Note: Stripping a Birch Tree of its bark will likely kill it. Don’t do that unless it is a true survival situation. Find downed trees to use the bark in non survival conditions.

As I said, there are other plants that could be your main study. The point is, pick out 5. Study them…know them. Have them in your survival plan. I chose the ones above for good reason. Choose your own that works for you in your area.

Why are we sick?

People live longer these days. At least potentially, as the average life span is certainly longer than it was 100 years ago or even 50 years ago. So why the title; “Why are we sick?” Because, even though we live longer on average, I believe the average person lives sick for all those years.

Broad Leaf Plantain

Broad Leaf Plantain is extremely nutritious and a medicinal powerhouse.

People live longer because modern medicine is good…very good at prolonging life. They are excellent at repairing injuries that would have been certain death 100 years ago. Props to emergency medicine. No complaints here on that avenue. Plus, they are always getting better.

Doctors are also getting better at curing different diseases that was certain death just 20 years ago, like cancer. Though I’m not convinced they could not have done so earlier if the money was more prolific for actually curing cancer than it is for treating it. Just my opinion and not a criticism on the doctors treating cancer but more of one on those researching the cures. Again my opinion.

Here is where I think Doctors are failing miserably and our lifestyles are failing us as well. That is keeping us healthy while we live. Health maintenance is horribly deficient, thus, we are living long, sick lives.

Cats Ears

Cats Ears are packed with nutrition and fiber our bodies need.

Let me give an example. To avoid embarrassing this person, I will not use her real name, but the example is important to demonstrate what goes on. I will call the person Sherry. Sherry, a friend of mine mentioned that she was put on a very strong anti-depressant. She thought it was weird because she went to the doctor for stomach aches that just would not go away. The doctor insisted her stomach ache was a symptom of depression. She said she didn’t feel depressed, but he’s the doctor. On that day when visiting, I excused myself to use the restroom. Later that same visit, hours later, I did so again. My wife thought nothing of it, but Sherry asked if I were OK. Long story short the personal conversation of how often we all used the bathroom came to light that Sherry had a bowl movement about 1-2 times a week! Ouch. Of course she had stomach pain and discomfort. We talked her into taking fiber pills. A month later, she was using the bathroom 1-2 times a day and was talking to her Doctor about weening her off the anti-depressant, which they did. Her stomach issues have diminished considerably. Why her doctor never asked about diet and her bowl movements is beyond me. Other than I believe medical training is geared more towards prescriptions than lifestyle changes.

That is just one of many many examples of how medicine and our life styles has it wrong. Food has everything to do with your health. Even cancers can be prevented and fought with proper food. Our bodies are not designed to thrive off of canned, processed, hydrogenated, soft, mushy, salty, greasy, fiber-less food that has been GMO’ed, pesticided, herbacided and grown in nutrient stripped soils.

Lambs Quarters

Young Lambs Quarters. All the nutrition of Spinach minus mans influence.

Even our green leafy vegetables are not as nutritionally powerful as they should be. So, what we are eating, is making us sick and the Doctors don’t seem to be making the full connection to that fact. Yes, even skinny people are nutritionally sick.

Things like diarrhea, constipation, Crohn’s disease, obesity, headaches, heart disease, cancers, high blood pressure, etc etc etc, are all due at least in part to what we put in our bodies.

Our ancestors may not have lived as long but I believe they lived healthier while they were alive. I know there were diseases they had that are now cured thanks to medicine, but I refer to people who didn’t have a disease and lived to a typical age of the time. They, on a day to day basis, lived healthier.

Stinging Nettle (2)

Stinging Nettle is highly nutritious.

Their diet was purer and closer to how our bodies were designed to thrive. High fiber vegetables untainted by Round Up. Genetically pure with all the micro nutrients still intact. Nutritionally full of vitamins and minerals that our bodies need minus the chemicals that are plugging our thyroids and livers.

Those vegetables  our ancestors ate are still available. You just need to look in the fields and woods around you. What we call weeds our great, great grandparents called dinner. You might consider that the next time you have an emergency run to the bathroom or have a headache that just lingers for ever. It just might be because of what you are putting into your body. It is possible that if you put more of the plants in the pictures shown here, in your body, you might need to put less pain relievers and other drugs in your body.

You might just find that you can not only live longer, but healthier as well.
