These are the herbs used to cure and wounds or ailments in the Clans.
(Put together by myself with help from Halfkit)

TIP: If you are looking for a cure to a certain illness, press Control + F on your computer keyboard to search for a keyword. For example, if I were looking for a cure to venom, I would search "poison," and medicines used to fight poison would be highlighted.

Alderbark: Eaten to cure toothache

Alfalfa: Used to prevent tooth decay

Aloe: Relieves burning and skin problems

Ash (tree): New shoots are chewed and applied to the bite of an adder or viper to stave off the poison effects; seeds may be eaten to fight the pain of a stitch in the side

Blessed Thistle: Helps strengthen the heart and lungs and increases circulation

Bramble Twigs: Helps bring sleep when chewed into syrup

Broom: Helps broken legs and wounds, chew into poultice and spit into wound

These are the known ailments or injuries in the Warriors books.

Aching joints: Arthritis in cats

Chill: A very mild sickness; like whitecough, but instead of fever, chills

Cough: A regular cough--what a cold would be to a human; dangerous to elders and young kits

Cracked pads: The paw of a cat becomes cracked from dryness or cold.

Greencough: Similar to pneumonia in humans--symptoms include coughing, wheezing, pus dripping from eyes, sneezing, and fever

Whitecough: A milder version of greencough

Blackcough: A very severe version of greencough, always fatal

Poisoning: Poisoning from deathberries, Twoleg junk, etc.

Of course there's also starvation, freezing, etc., but I shouldn't have to mention those.
