Sweet cherry (Prunus Avium)
In British folk medicine this plant has provided a cough and cold remedy, prepared from the bark , the gum, or the fruit stalks.   A similar infusion has also been used to treat bladder. In North America, wild cherry has been widely used in folk medicine, but another species (Prunus serotina) has mainly been used. Like its equivalent in Britain, it has largely been used for treating coughs. However, in combination with other herbs, wild cherry has treated a wide range of other conditions, including colic, jaundice, kidney complaints, and rheumatism.
