I’m in the forest. I have toothache. No drugstore in sight. What do I use? Mother nature is the best pharmacy you can have.
Traditional and natural medicine can cure many aches as long as you know what to use.
Toothache, bellyache, mosquito’s bites can be treated by chewing poplar leaves and sap.
Do you know what to use to cure your pain?
