DescriptionWhat they tell us is about natural medicines, what each one cures. Examples: tobacco for curing fever. The leaves are heated in front of the fire and we tie it on our head. Not just that, but it cures many diseases. There is the apazote: it is bruised a bit and kneaded on babies’ stomachs, and it removes stomach pain, heals bone pain, and removes worms, too. These are some examples, but many medicinal plants and how they should be used are discussed.
