Facing FibromyalgiaListeners of Herbal Prepper Live have been asking for a fibromyalgia show for a while now. It’s a big topic, and this topic will have to be covered in multiple shows. But, we need to start somewhere. That starts tonight.

When we think of health care and prepping, we tend to think of acute injuries, like bullet wounds, lacerations, snakebites, hypothermia, or infections. We don’t always think about chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia. Continue reading Facing Fibromyalgia

Sugar and Soured Health
Bob Hawkins “The APN Report“ Audio in player below!

Sugar and Soured HealthThe last APN Report was all about lowering the amount of salt in a diet as a good way to lose weight.

We’re going to be talking about a subject that has been front & center in my mind for more than 10 years now. Continue reading Sugar and Soured Health

Hygiene and being resourceful!

Hygiene and being resourceful!

Hygiene and being resourcefulWhen you talk about threats in a post disaster scenario it’s easy to get wrapped up in the obvious. I wouldn’t begrudge anyone for having fear of roving mobs of the desperate, life threatening conditions of the environment around us or even the very real possibility of starvation.

We don’t see them very often close to home but when disaster strikes the threats to our well being come screaming back into reality. Continue reading Hygiene and being resourceful!
