Aspirin is commonly referred to as a “wonder drug.” Officially discovered in the mid 1800's, Aspirin revolutionized how we fight pain and symptoms related to injury or disease, but its roots go all the way back to 400 BC, when Hippocrates wrote of using salicylic tea to reduce fevers.
Because of its versatility, Aspirin has been used worldwide to treat everything from fevers and pain to swelling and as a way to thin blood.
If you are in the wild or in a survival situation enough, chances are very good you are going to cut yourself or sprain something and you may not have aspirin readily available.
Fortunately, you have a lot of natural alternatives open to you if you need a pain killer in the wild.
