    Yarrow also brings down a fever. I used to make a mix of hops, catnip, white willow bark, and valerian for post fighting aches and pains.  It knocks you out and relaxes muscles.  It takes a fighter, I guess, to come up with atomic tea! 
    For bruises, I used to pack comfrey leaves in salt and some kind of fat, like butter or lard, and use it as a poultice.  Rubbing it in breaks up the bruise.  There are some great bruise juices recipes, but I don't have one.
    I always kept mint (various) and comfrey on hand for stomach and stress.
    More anon,

    Good to know!  By chance do you know the case/docket number so that I can review the ruling further?

    The FDA ruling of ephedra was recinded by court ruling. The ban was only for it's use as a diet aid. It was and still is a useful herb for asthma. Considering it's mechanism of action it would probably be useful for an allergic reaction if benedryl wasn't available.

    And I haven't seen anyone mention yarrow. It's the classic herb to stop bleeding.
