In my country they have many natural medicine.. Some people believe in natural medicine then the hospital!!
Some places you can also take treatment where they only use things from the nature..

I don't know much of unique things. Only common herbs. Like Yarrow, Cowslip(Primula veris) and Tilia flowers for cold. When I was kid my mom gave us hot Tilia flowers tea with honey and milk.. raspberry's stem tea also is good for cold.. They are good also because U can easily find them also in winter when they stuck out of snow, in case when u don't have stored up medicine herbs. I think there's many people who use herbs for medicine. When it's just cold I usually try first to cure with herbs.. Or rather my mom make some tea of herbs.

My uncle used a lot of natural medicine. He believed also into all kind of these healing things. He used some horribly stinky beaver's fluid to cure own hurting joints, he got from a hunter. It seems like it helped well..
