What should be done if bracken fern is eaten by a person ?

Hello, my friend has just told me that he took Bracken Fern about 10 hours ago and is now feeling very ill and shaking! He is panicking that he is going to die and wants to know how he can redeem this feeling! If you can get back to me as soon as possible, giving me instructions on what to do, that would be great!
