This week: “The Herbal Prepper Live” 6/25/2017
Listeners of Herbal Prepper Live have been asking for a fibromyalgia show for a while now. It’s a big topic, and this topic will have to be covered in multiple shows. But, we need to start somewhere. That starts tonight.
When we think of health care and prepping, we tend to think of acute injuries, like bullet wounds, lacerations, snakebites, hypothermia, or infections. We don’t always think about chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia.
However, given that the CDC estimates that one in every two adults in the United States has a chronic illness, preppers need to include preps for chronic illness too. It won’t be all the flashy stuff we see in survival movies or read about in survival books. It won’t all be bullet and knife wounds. Chronic illnesses will affect a lot more people.
Fibromyalgia means “pain in the muscle fibers”. Fibromyalgia involves body-wide pain, painful trigger points throughout the body, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, depression and/or anxiety, and trouble with memory. Approximately ten million people in the US population has fibromyalgia.
To make matters worse, there is no one, single cause for fibromyalgia. The symptoms do not even show up immediately after a triggering event. There are also many doctors who still give a diagnosis of fibromyalgia when a person has pain, and the doctor is stumped as to what the patient actually has.
In this episode, I will share my experiences working with fibromyalgia clients as a massage therapist and as an herbalist. There are also lifestyle and nutrition components for some cases of fibromyalgia. Just as there isn’t one cause for this body-wide pain, there isn’t just one approach to recovery from it. However, there are some options that may provide a way to manage fibromyalgia symptoms both right now, as well for when times get tough.

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!
