* Angels in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' have a home plane full of healing herbs that function the same as modern medical equipment and can heal anything from scratches to multiple gunshot wounds to the face. Demons have an EvilCounterpart, the Bone Leech, that runs on HarmfulHealing but will still raise one's hit points.

* A much more realistic example is knobweed from ''Literature/TheWayOfKings'', the sap of which is a powerful antiseptic. The heroes make a small fortune by taking advantage of the fact that Sylphrena is very good at finding patches of these weeds, far better than the workers employed by the local doctors.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheLongDark'' has rosehip, reishi mushroom, and old man's beard lichen, which are substitutes to painkillers, antibiotics, and antiseptics, respectively. From the former two, you have to brew tea, which makes them heavier to carry than the tablet form of their conventional counterparts. Conversely, old man's beard lichen, however, needs to be woven into bandage and has negligible mass, compared to antiseptics which came in liquid form.

* ''Discworld/AHatFullOfSky'': Played for laughs. Tiffany learns the Doctrine of Signatures from Miss Level, based on a real-life medieval idea that God placed a "signature" on every plant that indicated its medical use, to those who could read it properly. This being Discworld, the signatures are literal, and with a special magnifying glass, you can read them on the stems. Sadly, plants are terrible spellers, but Miss Level has worked out a great many cures this way, such as goldenrod being good for jaundice, which turns skin yellow.

* The Land in ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfThomasCovenantTheUnbeliever'' has ''aliantha'', berries which are surprisingly nutritious and refreshing, to the extent that just a few a day (less than a handful) with no other food or water can keep a person alive indefinitely. They also cure a variety of ailments including ''leprosy'', [[spoiler: at least while the person remains in the Land.]] They are, however, stated to be an expression of Earthpower, which is basically magic.
