Finding the right path through preparedness!

Canada 125Given that I am a huge proponent of spreading the word about preparedness, it stands to reason that every once in a while, my show will go back to basics. No, this isn’t a flashlight and spare batteries type of show, but one that will help you think for yourself.

Once you have that “Ah Ha” moment, many new preppers begin to panic. After all, your thirst for knowledge has brought you an overwhelming amount of new information. Websites galore telling you about the impending collapse of the economy, cosmic entities on collision courses, the police state you are now living in, and so on, and so on. All this can make you panic, and that is a natural reaction, but I hope to ease your fears, teach you how to get that fear under control, and then how to go about getting things started.

Crooked Preppers Path 400This week on The Prepared Canadian we will look at the 6 basic areas of preparedness, how to organize yourself and get you on the right path, and how to do it without feeling that it’s all too late and you might as well give up. I’ll go over how to get started in food storage, water storage and purification, how to get enough energy to run your most important electrical devices, some tips about security, a look into health and sanitation, and why shelter, although it needs to be addressed, can go a little further down on the list than most people think.

It’s all about layers folks, getting a bit of everything, then going back to the top of the list and improving what you have already done. Don’t forget, it’s not always about the black helicopters coming to take your children away to the FEMA death camps…it’s time to relax and think with a clear mind.

End of the World Advise from “Billy Bob Blogger”

Author:  Doug Carlsten
Author:
Doug Carlsten

I ran across a “Blog Page” this morning where someone was predicting the End of the World, and lamenting how you will be suffering because you won’t even be able to find the most rudimentary over the counter medicines at your local pharmacy.  They went on to suggest a bunch of herbal remedies, as substitutes to prescription, and over the counter drugs.  It became painfully obvious to me that they hadn’t really done their homework.  I love how people like to do a little research here on the internet… Declare themselves an expert, spew forth a bunch of crap, and the so called “Enlightened” follow their advice without question. (Who are the “Sheeple” and who aren’t?)  

end-of-the-world-2Well… I’m not predicting the end of days just yet.  I try to shy away from dire doomsday predictions of anarchy and mayhem.  I will say however that every time I go to the grocery store, it’s painfully obvious, that despite what the talking heads on CNN are telling us, the Economy just isn’t getting any better.  Some 47 million Americans are on food stamps.  Millions upon millions of us are either unemployed, have given up looking for a decent job, or trying to make do with a part time paycheck.  Will the Economy crash?  Will it slide off into a “Depression” that might make the 1930’s look like kindergarten?  Will Doomsday happen?  These are things that YOU have to decide for yourself, but I can tell you that (Even today)… Far too many Americans are having to make decisions about whether to buy their monthly prescriptions —- or food to eat.

Country and faith, needing both to succeed!

charlieinthebox166x125On this weeks show of Charlie in the Box radio it will be about those two topic’s that they say we should not talk about, because “it’s just going to start an argument”.. Religion and politics. When it comes to politics, I think John Adams says it best why we should be talking about politics; “I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and John Adams govt-uses-fear600x600philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain”.

Tonight, I will do my best to break down his quote and bring up other important topic’s about government and politics that I think we as American’s should be talking about. When it comes to religion I think that’s were we as American’s got it all wrong. Religion is where many Americans are divided, and we all know that we should be united. Therefore we as mature men and women have to stop acting like children and have this adult conversation. We have to put our differences aside today and find out what we all have in common and what we as individuals stand for because if you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.

all_tyranny_jefferson400x300I would also like to talk about country and faith. Country is you, I, our community’s our States and the American Constitution, the declaration of independence and the bill of rights….Hopefully we can all agree on that part. If Americans are able to stand together there will be no tyranny that our enemy can send against us that we will not be able to defeat. The line has been drawn in the sand America, and you could keep backing up and drawing another one but as you can tell, your government will always over step there bounds. If you think that you can handle an adult conversation,..tune in to the Charlie in the Box radio show.

Preparing your Body, Meals from Superfoods.

I am liberty 125We all know about the superfoods. Those spices and herbs that can turn you into a health beast. There are so many great foods out now and the science to back it up is stronger than ever. But the question is, what the hell do you do with a pomegranate seed or how do I incorporate that into an actual meal? What can I do with acai berries other than just pop them into my mouth? I love yogurt and all but besides scooping it with a spoon each morning what else can i do with it?

8-30ChefTonight on I Am Liberty I will don my chef hat for you once again and we will put together some great meals with optimum health. We will explore things like the Allium family and how to make garlic a headliner in a meal. One clove in 4 quarts of sauce just wont do it for the blood pressure. Kale, maybe the greatest green available for consumption but for some reason people think dehydrating them and turning them into bitter salty chips is the best way to eat it them.

8-30SuperFoodsPhysical fitness and Diet to me are step one and two for getting prepared for any disaster. All the cool gadgets and knowledge in the world will assure you zero days alive if your body can’t push on. Its not about fancy diets or omitting this, just eating that. Balance in all things is how you become a health beast. Cinnamon, honey, oats, salmon all power houses. Like I said we all have our own list but how do you combine, prepare and serve them to help your body perform when you most need it.

Herbal Medicine After the Disaster or in Remote Environments

Herbal Medicine After the Disaster or in Remote Environments

8-22-2013PlantWalk_croppedMany preppers and survivalists are very interested in learning about plant medicine.  There is an extremely good reason for this, which is the same reason I founded and run a very successful survival and herbalism school in Texas:  Plant medicine may be all that we have to turn to in a post-disaster situation and the resulting loss of all or most existing allopathic medical care.  In a world without clinics, emergency rooms or even doctors, how would you take care of yourself or a loved one who had a chronic illness like diabetes?  Or deal with an injury that started to become infected?

Other Side herbal-treatmentThere is another reason for this renewed interest in plant medicine however, and that reason is that plant medicine works.  It works as well as it always has worked for thousands of year.  In many cases herbal medicine works better than allopathic or pharmaceutical medicine. I started my journey into medicine as a U.S. Special Forces Medic (a.k.a. Green Beret Medic) and have been using plant medicine for over 20 years for myself, clients and family, for many health issues that people normally go to an emergency room or go to a clinic for.  I have also had several doctors approach me over the years wanting to work more with herbs because they are tired of dealing with a pharmaceutical-driven health care system that is broken in many ways.
