Many preppers are stockpiling pet meds, bulk over the counter medications, and asking their doctors for an extra refill or two on their normal prescriptions. Some are also stocking up on herbal remedies and essential oils. More medical, first aid, and herbal books are being written with preppers in mind, which is an encouraging trend.
Modern 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”.

The doctor was only a last resort…and the way our healthcare systems are going, knowing more about how to treat yourself at home is becoming more and more important! This week’s show is about simple Herbal medicines and home remedies that until 50 years ago. Were prominent in most homes!

Come join me The MrsVolfie and the other honeys of The Homestead Honey Hour while I share some of my favorite herbal remedies!
