Organization


If you plan on having a lot of herbs in your book (And you should, variety is cool.) You should probably pick another way to organize them, other than the A-B-C method, because that's gonna take double the work to memorize what every herb does if you don't automatically know what all their healing properties are. What I do is I make little headers that say healing properties. (EX. Headaches, pink eye, inflammation, etc.) And then I list the herbs and how to use them below. 

ARTHRITIS 

Black Cohosh- (How to use)

Ginger- (How to use)

Eucalyptus- (How to use)


You can also use sticky notes if you wanna get really fancy? You can have like whole pages in your book dedicated to one health problem and what herbs fix it and then label the stick note so you know where it is.

  • If they have pain and it is becoming worse and worse, they may be in labor. 
  • For exams, gently feel around mother's uterus for kits/baby. If kit/baby moves in response, they are fine.

  • After all KITS are born, nudge to mother. feed her the rest of the mixture
  • Once BABY is born, clean and dry off with a rag and cut umbilical cord off. Wrap in a warm blanket and give to mother. Feed her the rest of the mixture.
  • Once mother has strength, move her to the nursery. 

AMPUTATION 

(Couldn't find a bone for the humans. Just cut the boio right off ig idk. )

TRAINING STUDENTS

First Unit

Show your student around the territory. Show them some spots to find the herbs, where they are located, what ever. Teach them the warrior code (If needed) And explain to them the 'medic code' (You are allowed to cross clan boarders, Cross territories to help other clan, Must help kit/cat in need)

Second Unit

Go over each herb you know. Explain to them where they are found, how their used, what they do, and anything else you may think is helpful. Send them out on task every week to help them memorize their herbs. Send them to find around 3-4 herbs, scattered around the territory. 

Third Unit

Now, you're student should be beginning to use the herbs. go over uses every day to help them remember. Have them practice using the herbs. Pretend to be wounded and have them place a herb next to you. They should be saying things like; "Marigold, chew into a paste and lather onto a wound to heal nicely.", "Alder bark, helps tooth aches." DO NOT EAT ANY HERBS. In their final task, they will use herbs to treat a real wound. 

Fourth Unit

During this unit, teach them the procedures (CPR, Amputation, birth.) Go over it with words and descriptively tell them the steps. Have them practice it on you if possible. If lucky, have them watch and practice the real thing. In the final task, they must descriptively repeat each procedure learned. 

FIFTH UNIT

In this last unit, they will serve like a real medic for the next few months until they graduate. They will work to memorize everything by actually doing it. They should also watch their teacher do various things and learn from it.

Thank you for reading this page! It prolly doesn't have everything (Either I didn't have it/know about it, or I just couldn't find it) But you can always leave me a comment telling me where to fill in the blanks!! Keep in mind, the herb list isn't very long because i tried not to include many of the well known herbs. I specifically tried to make it only 'exotic' herbs to stretch your variety. If you need more information on a herb, simply search up; '-insert herb- medical uses'. Or where they are located, how to use them, whatever. But i think it would be obvious how to use them?? idk i can help you. Take anything you want hhahahahaha.
