This week: “The Herbal Prepper Live” 3/26/2017
What is your plan for fevers post-disaster? The scenario: no doctors and no pharmacies are available. You have no ibuprofen and no acetaminophen. Your child is sick, and the thermometer is reading 103°F. What do you do?
The standard of care in the United States has been to take a fever-reducing medication. I examine this practice by asking some key questions, such as:
- Is taking fever reducing medication really the best course of action?
- Are we, as a culture fever phobic?
- Why do we have fevers in the first place?
- How high can a fever go before it is dangerous?
- Are febrile seizures dangerous?
- How do I know when to intervene?
For when you do feel the need to intervene, I will cover several herbs which are febrifuges. A “febrifuge” is an agent that helps to reduce fevers. Many of these are also sudorific, meaning they help induce sweating. Some, however, are cooling. How and when to use them to your advantage during a fever is what this episode is all about.
How do these herbs taste? Going back to the scenario of the sick kid, the remedy needs to taste good. Otherwise, odd are that kiddo will simply refuse to take it, and potentially refuse to take other herbal remedies in the future. I’ve got that covered as well.
Fevers, fever phobia, and herbs for fevers are all on deck for this episode of Herbal Prepper Live. Fevers are an uncomfortable part of being sick. They can also be scary, especially with a young child. If you haven’t considered how you would handle a fever when help is not on the way, you’re going to want to catch this show.

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!
