This involves:
- reishi tea (2 bits of reishi mushroom, found on tree stumps)
- rose hip tea (three bushes worth of rose hips - 24 rose hips - found on little bushes with red thingies)
- old man's beard lichen dressing (3 pieces of old man's beard lichen, found hanging from trees)

Materials are easy to find, you have to prepare reishi and rose hips in the crafting menu and then cook them with 0,25 l water. Linen is even easier, you just use the crafting menu.

The tricky thingie is getting the right injury in the right way.

- rose hips heal wrist and anckle sprains - you can get them by falling (not recommended) or by walking a lot on slopy surfaces. It's random, but you'll likely get it anyway, so just keep a tea handy;
- reishi tea heals all kinds of infections - you can get dysyntery (never got it - probably from unboiled water), food poisoning or parasites. You'll want food poisoning, since the treatment is over after a single dose of reishi (parasites need 10 over the course of 10 days and that might actually be the end of your survivor); to do this just eat raw meat of a deer or a rabbit (carnivore meat will give you parasites);
- linen heals infected wounds and there's no way to get those other than to get bitten by a wolf (preferably) or a bear; just remember to have some bandage, imminent blood loss is an easy way to kill you.

GlitterLicks indicated that you don't actually have to get the injury, you can use the medicine on your healthy self :) I didn't test that, following the achievements descripiton, but it's probably true, Confirmed by Singularity69, so disregard the above :)
