This week: “The Herbal Prepper Live”  9/27/2015

It’s About Thyme

9-27-15 Thymus Vulgaris Public Domain ImageThyme is a highly antimicrobial herb which is a must-have for this time of year. Let me show you how to use this simple herb to kick bacterial and viral respiratory infections to the curb this cold and flu season!

Cold and flu season starts in just a matter of days, running from October to March. This means days sick out of school, out of work, and for some people, perhaps a trip to the hospital. It’s miserable in the best of times. In bad times, getting sick with a respiratory infection might spell disaster for you or a loved one.

9-27-15 Thymus Vulgaris Public DomainWhile there are many wonderful herbs that can help fight bacterial and viral respiratory infections, in this week’s show, were going to highlight thyme (Thymus vulgaris). This herb is easy to grow in the garden, as well as indoors with a little extra light. Thyme does double duty as a culinary herb and medicinal herb, and is an herb I reach for whenever I have a cough, bronchitis, or serious congestion.

9-27-15 Prepping for a PandemicIn addition to adding the leaves to food, especially pleasant on roasted chicken or with roasted vegetables, thyme can be prepared in a number of ways for inhalation. Thyme is taken as an herbal tea, steam, syrup, or as an essential oil.

Thyme isn’t for everyone, however. It is a very strong herbal remedy. Take caution around children, as the vapors from the essential oil can be intense even for adults. However, I have also seen the essential oil of thyme used safely to resolve serious infections, including bacterial pneumonia. After seeing how effective thyme can be when inhaled, whether a steam or an essential oil in a diffuser, thyme has become one of my most trusted allies for cold and flu season. Tune in live to learn more about thyme and how it can keep you healthy this time of year.

Herbal Prepper Live: Herbal Medicine for Emergency Preparedness

5-31-15Tune in live every Sunday evening for Herbal Prepper Live! Join herbalist and host Cat Ellis as she discusses herbs, oils, and other natural remedies tailored to preppers and survivalists.

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. Medical help is not an option and pharmaceuticals are unavailable. If you or your loved ones need health care, it’s up to you to provide it.

What can you expect to learn by listening to this show? Here’s a sample of what you can expect:

• How to grow and craft a renewable supply of plant-based medicines that will be available to you, even if the trucks stop running.

• All about herbal first aid and making your own herbal first aid kit.

• What herbs you need to start growing and stocking up on now.

• Basic herbal skills, like how to make herbal remedies like tinctures, teas, poultices, infused oils, oxymels, infused honey, syrups, and more.

• How to address chronic conditions that often require maintenance medications if pharmacy shelves are empty.

• How to stop a postpartum hemorrhage without Pitocin.

Ask yourself, could you care for your and your loved one’s health care needs if The End Of The World As We Know It, such as an economic collapse, an EMP, or a breakdown of society and services happened tomorrow?

Or, what if you were suddenly faced with a layoff, a lapse of insurance, denied services by Obamacare- are you equipped for a more personal collapse? Emergencies aren’t always catastrohpic, and personal-level emergencies also need preps and a plan.

If you answered no to either quesiton and you’d like to know more, you are going to want to tune in.

Remember to join us live in the chat room. This show is for you!
