The Urban Medic Part 2 – Medicinal Herbs
Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path”
Last week, Sam Coffman talked about the “urban medic,” or ways of dealing with injury and illness in an urban environment using wilderness and herbal medicine skills. Sam discussed the details of setting up a neighborhood clinic as well as considerations of being a mobile medic in an urban area that is experiencing unrest, protests or mob violence.
This week on The Human Path Sam will discuss the specific herbs and other first aid gear that you should consider having or carrying in this kind of a situation. He will discuss several medicinal plants that grow throughout urban areas in North America, how to identify, prepare and use those plants for major and minor acute and chronic conditions (to include trauma). Sam will also discuss some of the issues to be considered in regards to the safety and effectiveness of “weedcrafting” (harvesting wild medicinal plants) in city areas. This podcast is all about the herbs, and by the time it is over you will have learned several new medicinal plants and how to use them properly. Read more “The Urban Medic Part 2 – Medicinal Herbs”

This first airing of “Foraging for Life” will cover how to identify what region you live in and what types of foraging is available. Where to find identification materials that are suited to your lifestyle and why that is important. Learning the seasons of different edibles and looking for places to “treasure hunt” within your area. Being safe while gathering and foraging etiquette.
We hear it all around us, “Times are tough, prices are outrageous, everything is going up except my wages…” Would you like to learn how to gather food from the wild for free? Have you ever asked yourself, ” If I got lost in the deep woods without provisions, how would I survive?” The senses can be trained to pick up on things that most walk past. Foraging, gathering, gleaning; whatever you care to call it, can be a life saving skill. I sometimes refer to it as treasure hunting! I have at times set out to find a particular food, weather it be berries or fungi, and came home with wild medicinal herbs, pine pitch or cones. I’m amazed at the vast array and abundance that our planet provides for us naturally…we just have to learn to read her labels of identification. Wouldn’t you love to know how to preserve for later use that which you have just gleaned from nature? I have lots of wonderful tips and procedures, recipes and tricks of the trade to help you find a wealth of useful skills to keep your treasures stable for later use. I invite you to join me in Foraging For Life to discuss and share the skills and knowledge of gathering wild edibles. Not only will we expand our ability to identify and use that which nature supplies, but we will also strengthen our sense of self-reliance by shedding some light on the practice of foraging. I gladly welcome any of your experiences and knowledge, please feel free to come check out the show and share them with me. Hope to see you there!
