Parasites: Dealing with Infection in a Down-Grid Scenario
This week’s show is all about parasites, both internal and external. Be sure to listen and learn how to respond to these kinds of infections when there isn’t a doctor or a pharmacy available.
A caller to the show last week had a great question regarding skin infections caused by parasites. Parasites are a problem now while times are good. You better believe they will be an issue in any post-SHTF, down-grid disaster. Preparing for parasitical infections is just makes good sense.
Parasites are organisms that live on or in another organism which is called the host. Parasites feed off of the host organism. Parasites can enter the body through consuming contaminated water or food. Parasites can also enter the body through bug bites and other wounds.
Common parasitic infestations include scabies, lice, and bedbugs. Sometimes, the infections are caused by fly larva burrowing into skin. Unlike the larve of the common housefly, certain fly larve can eat away at both healthy and diseased tissue. Parasitic infections can cause bacterial infections, jaundice, and cause serious complications if they take hold of a vital organ.
Consider how much more common these, as well as food and water born parasites, would be in a down-grid situation where municipal water supplies are compromised. Hygiene and the quality of food and water will be major issues, and also lead to more infestations of parasites.
In this episode, we will cover: some basic first aid, herbs which may help, as well as some preventative tips. It is always better to not get sick in the first place, than have to recover from being sick.
The thought of worm-like organisms burrowing into skin or swimming about in one’s intestine is certainly unnerving. A parasite infestation can easily set off the “gross factor” for a lot of people. They will, however, be a common part of any major disaster or ongoing crisis.
To learn more about how to face challenges like this, please visit my website at www.HerbalPrepper.com and check out the latest articles and course offerings. Also, be sure to get a copy of my book, Pepper’s Natural Medicine, which addresses parasites and so much more.

About: The Herbal Prepper Live
Tune in live every Sunday evening for Herbal Prepper Live, hosted by herbalist and preparedness author Cat Ellis. Cat will show you how a holistic approach to health using natural medicine will make you more prepared for any emergency.
Join us live to discuss both acute and chronic health conditions that will need care, even if the medical system were to collapse. Would you know how to help a loved one if there were no hospital or pharmacy available? From preventative measures to infections to first aid and emergency care, you need to know how to care for your health care needs.
Herbal Prepper Live is one herbalist’s opinion on alternatives to modern medicine during a total collapse of our way of life. In this hypothetical scenario, there are no doctors, EMTs, hospitals, or pharmacies. Herbal medicine can provide life-saving options in this kind of environment.
This show is also for the individual who prefers to step outside the system. Preppers, survivalists, and homesteaders are highly independent and self-sufficient people. Many of us just prefer to choose more sustainable, holistic health care, like that found in nutritional therapy with real and traditional foods, herbal remedies, mycology, midwifery, and therapeutic movement.
Whether you prefer to use natural medicine as your “plan B” or as your primary path to health is solely your choice, and no one else’s. That’s what health freedom is all about. Herbal Prepper Live can help you plot out your “plan B” and strengthen your independence from a vulnerable medical system.
However, the time to learn such skills is right now while times are still good. Be sure to listen every Sunday evening at 7pm E / 6pm C / 5pm M / 4pm P. Remember to join us live in the chat room!
