During the broadcast, you hear one of the anchors say, “The state has officially issued a tornado watch and warns all residents to be prepared in case they have to evacuate.” You glance at the television with a smirk on your face. “They said the same thing last year and nothing happened,” you mumble. A few days go Continue reading Nature’s Calling: Preparing For The Worst

Paranoia in prepping good or bad?

Paranoia in prepping  good or bad?
Highlander “Survival & Tech Preps

Paranoia in prepping good or badWe often get called paranoid and crazy. We also get told that nothing will ever happen, we will be fine, and we do not have to worry about anything. I am sure the people who suffered Katrina, or Fukushima thought the same thing till disaster hit them. Yet people still dismiss these events as random. We as preppers see this as an opportunity to teach people that being prepared could have saved a lot of pain and suffering that is not necessary if Continue reading Paranoia in prepping good or bad?

DJ Cooper Surviving Dystopia!

DJ Cooper Surviving DystopiaSurviving Dystopia, What the heck does that mean?

DJ Cooper

In it’s most basic sense? “The art of Getting By”

Surviving Dystopia 320x400In 1516 Sir Thomas Moore coined the word Utopia… in his book of the same name, he is describing a society possessing near perfect qualities…. Dystopia is described as the opposite of that, often characterized by dehumanization, totalitarian governments, disasters or some other cataclysmic decline in society… George Orwell’s Dystopian novel 1984 was a classic example of such a society.

Join Author DJ Cooper (Surviving Dystopia) every Wednesday night at 9pm Eastern Time for a live show about keeping those Dystopian moments at bay. With no set course and a plethora of topics Continue reading DJ Cooper Surviving Dystopia!

How Many Disasters are You Prepping For?

How Many Disasters are You Prepping For?

Disasters -collageThe reason I’m asking is this: too many preppers are getting ready for TEOTWAWKI yet they don’t concern themselves with natural disasters that claim American lives each and every year. This got me thinking so I started to do a little digging to see just how prepared most preppers are…

See… we all have a vision of our worst fear and we tend to focus only on that. The most common one is probably a nation-wide Continue reading How Many Disasters are You Prepping For?

Herbal Medicine, First Aid to Save Your Life!

Sam Coffman herbal medicineHerbal medicine is a must know in first aid in saving a life. There have been some major natural disasters this year so far, from the California fires to the very recent (and current) flooding in Colorado. I am originally from Colorado and over two decades ago I lived in two of the canyons that flooded and were evacuated this past week. Many of the mountain towns are stranded right now with Colorado Flooding herbal medicineno supplies coming in and no vehicle routes out. People are in self-sustainability mode that live in those towns. The good news is that most folks living in the mountain towns along the front range (at least when I used to live in those areas myself) are usually pretty well prepared. How would you fare if it were you (and maybe it is you) – especially if you or someone close to you became injured, which is a common occurrence in a major disaster?

Disasters, Floods, Fires and Herbal Medicine!

Flood DisasterDisasters, Floods, Fires, a good reason to be prepared. On this broadcast of Survival Medicine with Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy these topics as well as wound care and the Jersey Shore boardwalk fire will be discussed.

Most of us have experienced or have witnessed a disaster type flood at one time or another. Anytime land which is normally dry is submerged in an overflow of water it would be considered a flood situation. This can occur due to the overflow of a body of water such as a lake, river, melting snow, levee overflows, etc. Flooding can also be contributed to excessive rain and saturated ground. While many floods occur in nature all the time there are those floods that can hit close to home and cause major damage and loss of life.

Disaster Flash FloodSome floods can develop slowly and give some notice to what is coming but there is another called the “flash flood” a disaster that can develop in a very short time and affect areas where there has not even been any precipitation.  As a result, this type of disaster often catches the populated areas by surprise, causing severe damage and loss of life.

Read more on Flood Safety:

Also on this episode of Survival Medicine Nurse Amy brings us Part 2 of her interview with Herbalist Cat Ellis. They discuss specific medical issues and which herbs would be useful, plus a lot more awesome Herbal Medicine information. Growing your own medicinal garden is both rewarding and beneficial; in times of trouble, you will likely have limited access to pharmaceuticals. The learning curve when gardening can be steep, so don’t delay planting those medicinal seeds until the situation is critical.
