Mental Health, When the Meds Run Out!
Host:Cat Ellis: “Herbal Prepper Live

Mental HealthCould you manage depression, anxiety, ADHD, or bi-polar disorder after a disaster?

You probably know someone close to you with one of the conditions listed above, because a significant percentage of Americans are on anti-psychotic prescriptions. These drugs are linked to dangerous side effects, like thoughts of suicide, hallucinations, and violent behavior.

Off Grid Cooking Alternatives
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Off Grid Cooking stove 41ZtvGiNHILOver the last couple of years, I have had the chance to try a lot of different off grid cooking options.

3-15 Preparations2Much of what we have is a “sick care” system, with a heavy dependence upon maintenance medications that do little more than maintain the current state of illness in an individual. People are then expected to take this or that pharmaceutical indefinitely, just masking the problem, and not solving the problem. If the condition worsens, the solution is to cut something, zap something, or chemically saturate something. Continue reading Collapse-Resilient Health Care Plan!

Host: Lynna “The Other Side… A Preppers Path”

CookingMost of us are always looking for alternatives to the grid and resources that are inexpensive or free. There are all sorts of gadgets out there mixed in with some really inventive, efficient and renewable products and solutions.

Who hasn’t been sitting in a car, windows up, on a winter day and become overheated from the sun pouring in the window. It has always amazed me how much heat is generated from reflection of the sun’s rays alone. There really ought to be a way to harness this incredible free power source to benefit us all…. Yes I know the Solar Industry was born long ago, but until recently the real potential of this resource hasn’t really been touched. Continue reading Cooking Without Power!
