Wild geranium

диви здравец се користи за стомачни проблеми и дијареа. Тоа е подготвено во чај.

The wild geranium is used as a tea for stomach problems and diarrhea.

Commonly called cranesbill in North America, it is used by indigenous
peoples to stop bleeding and to treat diarrhea.

Milk thistle or donkey flower

According to Rade, the milk thistle or donkey flower (магаре цвет) is
good for stomach problems and high in vitamins. Like mushrooms it is
good in salad.

Milk thistle is a plant native to Europe. It has a long history of use
as a folk remedy for liver and gallbladder disorders. The active
constituent of milk thistle is thought to be silymarin, a flavonoid
found in the seeds.

Medicinal use of mulberry fruit

My friend Rade says the mulberry fruit (черница) not only makes a
good jam, but is also good for stomach problems. It can be white,
black, or red.

Traditionally, in China mulberry fruit has been used as a medicinal
agent to nourish the yin and blood, benefit the kidneys, and treat
weakness, fatigue, anemia, and premature graying of hair. It is also
used utilized to treat urinary incontinence, tinnitus, dizziness, and
constipation in the elderly and the anemic.

In China silk worms feed on the mulberry and often
flies will lay eggs in the mulberry fruit.
