Building the Herbal First Aid Kit!

How To Build An Herbal First Aid Kit
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

How To Build An Herbal First Aid KitA prepper’s first aid kit is a basic kit that’s often found in a bug out bag or stashed in the car. There may be a larger kit in the house. Sure, you can build a quality kit with a visit to your local pharmacy. But, what if that local pharmacy weren’t there? If we have had a societal collapse, and you run out of your bottle of ibuprofen, clotting agent, or tube of triple antibiotic ointment after just the first month, how will you resupply when there is no pharmacy?

Art and Science of Plant Medicine

The Art and Science of Plant Medicine – a discussion with herbalist Lisa Ganora
Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path

Plant Medicine CSCH_Logo_Final_Color_Boulder5This week, Sam Coffman pulls out and dusts off an old podcast from several years ago. He interviews Lisa Ganora, who has taken over the ownership and direction of the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism in Boulder Colorado. Lisa also wrote a fantastic book about the constituents of plants. Lisa was raised with family members teaching her folk medicine, and originally did not have much of a desire to care about the more western, scientific approaches to botany and plant medicine. However, she eventually received degrees in botany and chemistry, and came back around to look at herbalism from the other side. In this regard, she offers a very balanced look at plant medicine that both incorporates the vitalistic connection between human beings and plants, as well as the scientific approach that focuses on the actual mechanisms of the plant world and how they interact with the mechanisms of our own body.

Collapse-Resilient Health Care Plan!

Collapse-Resilient Health Care Plan!
Host: Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

Collapse TincturesModern medicine has some truly wondrous, life-saving procedures and medicines. It excels in it’s diagnostics techniques and heroic interventions. However, does the US really have a health care system? I say, emphatically, “no”.

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!

America On the Dole-The Buck Stops Where?

America On the Dole-The Buck Stops Where?
Host: Lynna “The Other Side… A Preppers Path

On the DoleAmerica on the Dole! Fact or fiction and just where does the buck stop? Questions we each need to answer, not for the country as a whole but personally. Semantics aside whether you call it on the dole, welfare or food stamps, government aid that you don’t pay back is welfare in the purest since. Per The United States Department of Commerce Statistics: “Welfare is the organized public or private social services for the assistance of disadvantaged groups. Aid could include general Welfare payments, health care through Medicaid, food stamps, special payments for pregnant women and young mothers, and federal and state housing benefits. The Welfare system in the United States began in the 1930s, during the Great Depression.” Indeed a time of true need for many, definitely a far cry from the statement often heard today of “I/we could make it without food-stamps BUT why should I? along with “ I get food stamps but that’s not welfare.” Neither statement would have heard 20 years ago. Perhaps a question to ask today, why has the mindset of so many become you owe me or I deserve? Continue reading America On the Dole-The Buck Stops Where?
