This week: “The Herbal Prepper Live” 10/23/16/2016
Interview with Herbalist Katja Swift
This week on Herbal Prepper Live, I will be chatting with Boston-based herbalist Katja Swift. Katja, along with Ryn Midura, founded the CommonWealth Center for Herbal Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. Katja is the center’s Director of Education.
From Katja’s bio on the CommonWealth Center for Herbal Medicine’s website:
Katja is an herbalist and teacher working to help adults, children, and families rebuild their relationships with their bodies and with their own ability to heal.
By teaching people how to understand what’s going on in their bodies, to eat real food, and work with medicinal plants, she helps them to reestablish their connectivity to the earth, to themselves, and to one another.
Katja likes words like educate and choice, hike and campfire, music and art. Also, enough, plain speech, and integrity. She abhors the way in which the phrases “I can’t” and “I have to” are overused in our culture.
Katja chooses to practice in Boston (as opposed to greener, wilder places) because city folks need plants, too. The dandelions come to live in cracks in the sidewalks just to be close to us: teaching in a city means that more people can recognize them in gratitude instead of trying to be rid of the weeds. She homeschools her twelve-year-old daughter Amber, who makes a very good pot of tea, loves dogs, and enjoys helping in the school and clinic.
Another project that Katja and Ryn are both involved with is the Herbal Medics program founded by Sam Coffman. Katja and Ryn have founded the first Herbal Medic chapter in Boston.
Herbal Medics is a 501C3 non-profit bringing integrated herbal and orthodox medicine to medically and economically underserved communities. Herbal Medics has been involved in several relief and education efforts in the W. Virginia, North Dakota, and Nicaragua. The program’s blend of herbal medicine with sustainable-living technologies has much to offer to preppers and survivalists.

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!
Cat Ellis’ mission in life is to teach as many people as possible how to take charge of their health and well being so they can thrive in both good times and in bad. Cat has hosted her show, Herbal Prepper Live, since 2014.
Cat Ellis is the author of one of the top selling herbal remedy books on Amazon, Prepper’s Natural Medicine: Lifesaving Herbs, Essential Oils, and Natural Remedies for When There Is No Doctor. Her second book, Prepping for a Pandemic: Lifesaving supplies, Skills, and Plans for Surviving an Outbreak, consistently receives high ratings and impressive reviews.
Cat sees herbal clients in several locations around Southeastern Massachusetts, as well as through online appointments. She is the founder of www.Herbal Prepper.com where she offers online herbal and sustainable living courses. Cat is also a massage therapist, and is currently pursuing studies in midwifery.
