Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis

2-26-15 TBGoneWildCould drug-resistant tuberculosis be the next great pandemic? Most people think of tuberculosis as being a long-gone disease, a throwback to the Colonial or Medieval Eras. Also known as “consumption”, tuberculosis is thought of as something modern medicine has eliminated. Not only is this factually incorrect, tuberculosis has joined the ranks of drug-resistant bacterial infections.

2-26-15 Mycobacterium_tuberculosis_01When antibiotics no longer kill a particular bacterial infection, the entire population is at risk of that infection in a much larger way than a handful of people who refuse vaccinations. Without effective antibiotics, there is no treatment. Without treatment, tuberculosis has a mortality rate of about 50%. This is about the same mortality rate as the current outbreak of Ebola, and twice the mortality rate of measles in third world conditions.

2-26-15 Marshmallow Root InfusionCurrently, there are approximately 8.7 million cases of tuberculosis infection, with over 500,000 deaths worldwide due each year. With the growing resistance to antibiotic drugs, that death toll will continue to rise. India has been hit the hardest, with an estimated 40% of their entire population infected with latent tuberculosis, ready to emerge into active tuberculosis without warning like a ticking time bomb. In our world of international commerce and travel, it is absolutely possible for totally drug-resistant tuberculosis to spread around the world, including the US. Yet, there is little to no media coverage. As to why, one can only speculate.

2-26-15 MarshmallowTo make matters worse there are now strains of not only drug-resistant or even multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, but there are extremely and totally resistant drug-resistant tuberculosis strains. And while we have discovered that totally drug-resistant tuberculosis does exist, the incidence of it is not being tracked. The World Health Organization is not tracking the spread of totally drug-resistant tuberculosis.

Only 9% of all tuberculosis cases are tested for drug resistance. This shockingly low testing of strains results in improper administering of antibiotics and allows more strains to gallop towards extremely and totally drug-resistant status.

2-26-15 Sida spinosaLike many drug-resistant bacteria, herbs can offer another strategy to those preparing for pandemics. Unlike drugs, herbs are living, synergistic organisms that evolve. Many have antibacterial actions. Herbs have also developed their own ways of shutting down the bacteria’s resistance methods. We will cover some of the possibilities and a potential herbal strategy for tuberculosis in case totally drug-resistant tuberculosis were to become the next great pandemic.

Herbal Prepper Live: Herbal Medicine for Emergency Preparedness

Tune 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!
