Snake Bites, Infections and Herbal Medicine!

Snake Bites, Infections and Herbal Medicine
Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path”

Snake BitesAs we have talked about before, the three biggest issues after a disaster are very likely going to be food, water and medicine. Add to this the fact that most post-disaster environments are laden with potential health threats: Rubble, obstacles and hazards, open sewage and bacteria-laden water, disturbed wildlife looking for new homes, increased rodent population and more. A lack of medical services really starts to hit home when talking about severe, acute environmental or medical injuries. Two good examples of this kind of severe, post-disaster medical situation are infection and venomous snake bites in North America (e.g. Rattlesnake, Copperhead, Coral Snake, Cottonmouth).

Herbal Antibiotics!

Herbal Antibiotics
Host: Cat Ellis “The Herbal Prepper Live

Herbal Antibiotics Herbal Prepper Live150When antibiotics were introduced in the 1940’s, many in the medical world believed that humans had finally conquered bacterial infections. Once serious infections were now treated easily with just a few pills. It was a great achievement of modern medicine.

Herbal Antibiotics GermsBacteria, it turns out, are more resilient than anyone ever expected. They possess unique and efficient methods of adapting, resisting, and communicating that resistance to other bacteria. The bacteria not only develop resistance to one antibiotic, but seem to also anticipate future attacks from different antibiotics. Bacteria are sharing survival information. This has given rise to a so-called, “Superbugs” that resist even the strongest antibiotic drugs known to man.

Antibiotic resistance comes from overuse of antibiotics, as well as low-dose applications of antibiotics. Both conditions run rampant in the Industrial Farming model. Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) could not operate without the use of antibiotics to accommodate for the filth these animals live in, as well as their low-dose use to “fatten” the animals.
