Natural Solutions for Arthritis Part #2 

TARGET: Muscular Skelatol System
Survival: Medicine

Rheumatoid  arthritis is a pain which targets the muscular skeletal system. In many cases effects joint area muscles but not limited to. This happens over time as oxidation forms within the joints causing inflammation there are many temporary solutions to help ease the pain and control the ability to control your own articulation thus limiting range of motion throughout. 

There are internal and topical solutions as well as solutions with aromatherapy. But the only way to make the problem go away for good is to find the root cause of oxidation and inflammation. With internal supplementation. 

A powerhouse of a herb for arthritis pain is White Willow Bark this herb targets nerves and has an aspirin like effect and has blood thinning properties. The body converts the salicin in the white willow bark and other species of the white willow family into salicylic acid. White willow is also good in aiding in most pains while providing a good supply of blood to the nerves and nerve endings loaded with healthy oxygen.This herb also has anti-inflammatory properties which aids also in inhibiting inflammation.
White willow barks ability to manage pain effectively may take a bit longer than normal aspirin but willow lasts longer and as aspirin has the ill effect in some to irritate the stomach lining willow will not cause these effects.
It is also said salicylic acid is used to dissolve warts and corns try using a little white willow on the wart or corn to dissolve it.
White willow bark is also good for Oral Care such as toothaches and nerve pain specific.
Other good herbs for arthritis are: (Short List)

Click here to view the original post.
Target: Respiratory System
Survival: Medicine


Herbs for Sinus Infections:

There are some great herbal aids for sinus infections. Teas are the best because of the steam like warmth provide better purification(antiseptic) as well as creating a greater absorption.  mouth rinses are as well good providing anti-septic, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties

Sinus infections are primarily caused by toxin overload and create a bacteria haven causing excess mucus. This in tern causes a stress on the respiratory and central nervous system and immune system because now these systems have to work harder to maintain a minimal of good health causing tiredness, fatigue, irritability, headache. and cold like symptoms as well as excessive mucus flow. (nasal drip).

The key to helping a sinus infection is to detox the nasal and bronchial passages from both bacterial and viral and microbial properties then to aid in relief of the mucus membrane from excessive drainage of mucus throughout then to begin the actual healing process.

Also it is important to stay away from all dairy products to reduce any additional enzymes that will create unnecessary mucous and mucous membrane irritation(s)

Some Good herbal teas are as follows:

Echinacea/ Goldenseal: anti-bacterial anti-septic
Thyme: anti-bacterial/ anti- viral
Oregano: Anti-Bacterial, Anti- Viral
Apple Cider vinegar:  antiseptic and demuculant
Cinnamon: ( well diluted and in very small doses) Anti-septic
Licorice root: for its powerful healing properties of membrane walls
Lavender: anti-microbial
Marshmallow Root: demuculant will help sooth irritated membrane walls.

A Powerful Herbal Nasal Spray:
For near imediate relive from nasal infections use the following recipe in a nasal sprayer 2 times daily
You will need:
1 tablespoon of dried godenseal root
1 tablespoon of echinacea root
1 cup of distilled water
Directions:
Bring 1 cup of distilled water to a boil in a non aluminum saucepan add herbs and stir well cover and lower heat to a low simmer for 30 minutes. Let cool and stain 3 times through a coffee filter or a fine cotton cloth.  fill nasal sprayer and breath in through each nostril while spraying into while closing the other nostril.  this can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 4 days before a new batch is needed to be made.

For more severe cases add 1 tablespoon of raw wildflower honey into mixture and completely disolve before adding to sprayer ( when adding honey you do not have to refrigerate and the shelf life will be good for an easy 10 days.
Your sinus’ will immediately decongest and clear the nasal and upper nasal passages, this is due to the powerful detox and antiseptic properties in the berberine in the golden seal root. The anti bacterial properties in the echinacea will help with any bacterial infections that may be present and in a very mild way aid in strengthening the immune system subliminally.

A few good mouth rinses:

Thyme, peppermint:This will act as a antiseptic while opening both the nasal and bronchial passages.
Apple Cider Vinegar; For its antibacterial properties and healing properties from the present levels of pectin.

A good mouth rinse/Gargle Recipe for nasal infections:

You will need: 

  • 2 tablespoons of dried thyme leaves
  • 16 oz. of distilled water
  • 3 tablespoons of dried marshmallow root
  • 2 drops of Pre-diluted essential oil of oregano to 2 percent 
  • 2 tablespoons Apple Cider vinegar
  • 2 drops of Pre-diluted essential oil of peppermint  (or 2 tablespoons of dried peppermint leaves)
  • 2 tablespoons of dried licorice root herb

Directions: 
Bring  distilled water to a boil and add all dried herbs,  Bring heat to a very low simmer, Place a lid on the pot (any herbal oils distilled will return to the water)
for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool, Press and strain soaked herbs into a sterile jar.

rinse or gargle 2-3 times a day this will also help a sore and irritated throat especially due to mucus drain/drip.

Note if you have blood pressure issues do not use licorice root 

Medicine In The Event Of A Disaster – The Impact Of The Loss Of Pharmaceuticals

Click here to view the original post.




Medicine In The Event Of A Disaster – The Impact Of The Loss Of Pharmaceuticals

In the event of a disaster, the loss of modern medicines and the pharmaceutical industries is something that worries a lot of people. They may well be right to be worried, as the loss of medical facilities would quite literally deal a death-blow to many suffering individuals. A lack of vaccines would also be a problem – although probably not for a few years. However, it’s not all bad news. Surprisingly, the loss of chemical-based pharma may actually benefit the world in some ways. Here is a brief look at the problems which may arise without pharmaceutical companies, and some of the benefits.
Vaccines
One of the most problematic effects of a loss of modern pharma is undoubtedly a loss of vaccines. Vaccines have rendered much of humanity safe from diseases which used to routinely wipe thousands of us out each year. It is estimated [1] that vaccines have saved 732,000 children’s lives since 1994. Vaccines have effectively wiped out deadly diseases like polio, smallpox, and measles. Moreover, they’re not just good for the vaccinated individual. Modern humanity relies upon something called ‘herd immunity’, which is very roughly explained as the protective effect which vaccinated individuals hold over the ‘herd’ as a whole, due to their being little scope for the diseases to get a foothold in humanity – “the risk of infection among susceptible individuals in a population is reduced by the presence and proximity of immune individuals” [2]. Worryingly, the anti-vax movement has already reduced herd immunity significantly in the USA – incidences of measles, rubella and so on are up- massively in the USA compared to nations where the anti-vax movement is not quite so strong. Not everybody is able to be vaccinated, due to specific vulnerabilities they may have (an allergy to vaccines, for example, or a weakened immune system). Therefore, not vaccinating your child puts not only your own child at risk, but all of these other people as well. A recent outbreak of measles at Disneyland has been comprehensively linked to “a decline in child vaccinations” [3] – a worrying development.
Not All Bad News
The loss of vaccines would, therefore, be a major problem, which would undoubtedly cut swathes through the human population. However, assuming that the population were reduced considerably in the event of an emergency (a gloomy prediction, but potentially accurate), those who survived could take some comfort. While these diseases would still be present, they would find it far less easy to spread and mutate amongst a smaller, less urbanised population. Furthermore, survivors would undoubtedly have gained a strengthened immune system during the survival process, which would stand them in good stead from an evolutionary point of view. Finally, those with a good working knowledge of herbs, herbal medicine, and nutrition would have far better immune systems to protect them against these diseases, and would be far better prepared to treat them in the event that they did occur.
The Environment
On a more positive note, surprisingly, when it comes to general health, the loss of the pharmaceutical industry might actually be a good thing. Modern society, you see, is addicted to pills in a shockingly addicted to pills – and all those pills which we pop have a definite effect on the environment. Pharmaceutical pollution is a serious ecological issue. As humans have to live in the environment, it’s also a human health issue. Not only do pharmaceuticals like steroids often end up in human drinking water after being excreted, they frequently end up being consumed by animals, including livestock. Humans then consume the animals, thus also consuming all of the pharmaceuticals that these animals have drunk in. Obviously this is not ideal – pharmaceuticals should, ideally, be used as a last resort when nothing else will work. Putting alien chemicals into your body when you don’t need them for vaccination or healing purposes is always a bad idea. The loss of the pharmaceutical companies would undoubtedly ensure that the things we eat and drink are to some degree more natural and healthier.
Pain
Pain is an absolutely crippling problem for many of us, which absolutely needs to be dealt with in the most effective way possible. However, far too many of us rely on chemical painkillers to deal with the slightest of maladies. Harvard School of Medicine point out that prescriptions for opioid painkillers have increased “tenfold since 1990” [4]. Britain’s BBC reports with some bemusement that Americans consume 80% of the world’s opioid painkillers, and pop heavy-duty pills for something as simple (and transient) as a stress headache. More worryingly, opioids are highly addictive. It is estimated that the vast majority of opioid overdoses in the US come not from heroin, but from prescription painkillers. Furthermore, some are led through painkillers down a path which leads to illegal substances. CNN report that “Today’s typical heroin addict starts at 23, is more likely to live in the affluent suburbs, and was likely unwittingly led to heroin through painkillers prescribed by his or her doctor” [5]. Far better to choose a more natural method of pain relief for minor aches. There are plenty of herbs which work as natural painkillers – a quick perusal through this blog will provide ample options – and they’re all a lot better for you than pharmaceuticals!

5 vital Elements of Prepping to Survive Realistically

Click here to view the original post.
In this Post I will layout the 5 major elements of realistically being prepared as all as countermeasures against obstacles when a preparedness plan is needed.

First,
For those of you that have been watching my video channel, reading my posts or subscribed to my blog I have said this, Food, Water, “PERSONAL HYGIENE PRODUCTS”  In this post I will be adding another vital element of preparedness; Important Papers and as the first element of the matrix of realistic preparedness.

Important Papers: 
This will be vital to identify yourselves as a LEGAL U.S. CITIZEN, as well as prove who you say you are is true.  This is more particularly for Civil Unrest and Martial Law. Their will be Government Control Points Managed by the Military, Fema, D.O.H.S. and depending at its severity the U.N.

Food:
In August of 2013 the LARGET Food Grab was initiated, on the largest Freeze dried manufacturer by purchasing Large amounts of food with the excuse that the government is feeding something was coming storm wise so FEMA wanted to be prepared as they were with the trailers.( notice many people are moving out of there homes and fultiming in RV’s.

The largest Gun grab “SEEMED” to look like it failed so the Government as the food are making massive purchases of Ammo. this all limits the peoples abilities.

Water:
But what about water??? in NY a bill has passed and as citizens pay for water to come into the residence they now will have to pay for it again to leave and go down the drain. now creating 2 fees that will not be affordable to a individual and as a result less water will be used and then Personal Hygiene begins to degrade and bacterias form. as an illness  So now medicine is needed; But water is mores needed for proper hydration and absorption of medicine.

Medicine:
They are regulating Medicine through a government healthcare plan as a result of OBAMACARE medications as of January 2012 are no longer being manufactured . These meds include
Meds for those with

  • Disabilities of the brain
  • Diabetes
  • Addictions
  • General overall Health

Read about the herbal survivalist that will explain what I am about to say.

Important Papers,Food, Water, Medicine,
“Personal Hygiene Products” 

Look at this list backwards; if there is a lack of personal hygiene products what will happen? lack of personal hygiene = “Bacteria(s) 2. Bacteria(s) = illness’ which need medicine to heal or repair or eliminate. 3. Illness’ need medicine but also nutritional supplementation(s).  In order to provide true nutrition to ALL our main systems we need Good Food and a Pure Water Source to maintain overall hydration health for this to gets applied to all our main systems. Removing one element from the necessary elements to survive will effect all the main systems of the human body; Respiratory, Circulatory, Central Nervous System as well as the skeletal and muscular system. 

Secondly,On a water system I highly recommend and have myself is the Mini Works MSR micro filter . This is issued to the US marines. Also note others due to wear from the dirty water supplies need to be replaced yes, (the Whole Filtering System) this unit has a maintenance kit that is very inexpensive and is comparable and if not bet than the other models out there I also cary a spare filter with my system.

Thirdly, People must work together and not try to delegate all survival tasks and resources to themselves but with realistic and reliable individuals also remember we should also take glare of the disabled and the elderly regardlessly. and above all we MUST put GOD FIRST and include him in all we do plan and learn. Go to the post Hope Herbs and the graces off God and after you read it watch the short training video at the end and you will be amazed what you just learned and pass it around.

Herbal Medicine and its Controversies

Click here to view the original post.

Why Are Herbal Remedies So Controversial?
This is a good question. Despite helping millions of people for thousands of years, herbal remedies, homeopathy, and other alternative medicines are still far from being accepted by western society. Medical research council’s, doctors, and the general public are dubious about the benefits of medicines that don’t come pre-packaged with a ‘This is Modern Medicine Built in a Laboratory’ sticker attached.
So why are these types of medicines controversial, and does it matter anyway?
Unvetted Sources
The first thing to acknowledge in this debate is that not all alternative medicine is legitimate. In some cases, companies try to claim their product works as an alternative cure for medical conditions when it has little to no medicinial qualities.
This leads back to the blessing and curse of alternative medicine: it’s not regulated. Because it doesn’t have a governing body in the same way traditional medicine does, it’s possible for medicines to call themselves “herbal” and be sold, without having to prove that they work. 
If a company can put whatever what they want on a label and claim that it helps treat a condition, then someone, somewhere, will do so to make a quick profit. But that doesn’t mean all alternative medicines are like that. The key is to understand that you can’t tar all alternative medicine with the same brush. This is where just a little intelligence is needed. Many accepted modern medicines can do more harm than good, yet you don’t see people refusing life-saving operations. So why do people believe that because one alternative medicine doesn’t work for them, that none will?
Little Profit
The real cause of the controversy surrounding alternative medicine is this: there’s limit profit in it. What we mean is, compared to the $3 trillion US healthcare system, there is next to no money in this kind of healthcare. You can’t monopolize natural remedies (though some companies have tried) in the same way you can patent a drug, hike the price, and make millions in the process. In many ways, alternative medicine is about compassionate medicine; unlike the health insurance companies, hospitals, and drug manufacturers who are in business to make mega money, alternative medicine practitioners are in the game because they believe in their product and want to help people.
But make no mistake: if it was possible to make a trillion dollars from alternative medicine, you would see it everywhere. The government would back it, you’d see advertisements for it on TV, doctors would prescribe it, and it would generally become part of our way of life.
Money has always driven our healthcare system, and continues to do so. Things that sell get airtime, and things that don’t get ignored. You only need to look at the staggering quantities of anti-depressant pills that are prescribed to the public each year, despite their effectiveness continually called into question. That a three month supply of the pills can cost in excess of $1000 is surely just a strange coincidence.
Be Wary Of Source
The healthcare system doesn’t want natural remedies to become popular; it’s bad for business. You should always question why somebody is telling you something. Even if – and this isn’t true – natural remedies had zero effectiveness, they definitely don’t do any harm. So why would there be a campaign against something that isn’t bad? Shouldn’t there be more of a focus on things that actually might harm you?
There’s been a conscious and constant stream of disinformation spread about natural products, and it hasn’t been for our benefit. You only have to look back to the beginning of the controversy to understand its motives. Natural remedies were hugely popular in the early 19th century, but when the American Medical Association came only in 1844, they deemed natural medicines to their rival, began a campaign to destroy its credibility, most damagingly by claiming it to be “unscientific”.
Final Thoughts
Despite what the figureheads and the media say about alternative remedies, there’s one thing they can’t dispute or stop: people themselves saying that it works. For the people who have had their epilepsy, PTSD, infections, flu, and diabetes, along with many other conditions, helped by natural medicines, they already have their answer. When you can’t trust the people telling you the news, it’s time to just try it and see for yourself that it works.

Beating The ‘Dirty Survivalists’ Myth – How To Keep Clean The Natural Way
Cleanliness is very important. Drugs and improved knowledge of anatomy have helped us to advance medically, sure, but few things have revolutionized the preservation of human health quite so much as the discovery of the importance of hygiene. Poor hygiene in hospitals is frequently described with no exaggeration as “a matter of life and death” [1]. Furthermore, a clean and fresh body and environment is incredibly good for us, psychologically speaking. Researchers have found that personal cleanliness renders the judgement of others upon us “less severe” [2]. Other sources claim that a clean home, as well as harboring fewer germs, can render us happier, less stressed, and less likely to experience conflict in our personal lives. However, these days we tend to associate cleaning with the use of artificial chemicals. What on earth would we do were these chemicals denied us? Would we have to resort to living in filth? Well, no. There are plenty of natural ways to keep ourselves and our environments clean and serene. Here are just a few.
Cleaning Your Home
A clean environment in which to live is vital on many levels. Not only does it keep you and your family healthy, it also makes you feel in control of your life, and provides a pleasant impression for visitors. It also ensures that your home – wherever or whatever it be – is likely to be better maintained than it otherwise would. In today’s world, home insurers are likely to lower premiums for properties which are demonstrably clean and well-kept, as this implies that the house is less likely to attract pests, or generally fall into the kind of disrepair which may necessitate a payout. Although insurance may not be an issue in the potential world of tomorrow, home maintenance probably will be. Letting dirt accumulate quickly leads to the erosion of the fabric of your home, as well as encouraging vermin and insect pests to set up shop there and get to work on your valuable food supplies (all while distributing germs liberally through your pantry). Without the aid of chemical cleaning tools, there are plenty of alternatives which you can use to keep home degradation at bay. Here are just a few of them:
Vinegar – Vinegar, with its acidic properties, is a fantastic cleaning tool. It’s not hard to come by, either. As long as someone is making wine or cider, you can use the leftovers to make vinegar. As Ohio State University point out [3], however, the corrosive properties of vinegar are so great that you’d be advised to make it in a wooden rather than a metal container. Once you have your vinegar (white ideally), mix it into a solution of nine parts water, one part vinegar, and use it the way you would a chemical antibacterial spray. You’ll be amazed at how effective it is!
Lemon Oil – Lemon oil, like vinegar, is also acidic and antibacterial. It has the advantage over vinegar of smelling much nicer! You can use a lemon sliced in half to clean shiny metal surfaces like brass – if they’re particularly troublesome, and need an abrasive scrub, add salt and scrub off with the lemon. A lemon rubbed over a tough stain and left overnight will work wonders at stain removal, and lemon juice kills a whole host of harmful germs.
Baking Soda – If you can get hold of baking soda, then you’re in luck. Baking soda is not the easiest thing to manufacture, but neither is it impossible in a post-industrial world. Baking soda neutralizes odors as well as often removing stains, making it a fantastic all-purpose cleaner.
Salt – Salt, particularly kosher salt, is a great antiseptic. A salt solution mixed with vinegar, lemon juice, baking soda, or essential herb oils (for a great-scented home) and spritzed onto problem areas will make an amazing cleaning material. It provides that extra abrasive touch needed for tougher dirt.
Cleaning Yourself
Personal hygiene is very important for both physical and psychological health. In truth, we probably don’t need to wash quite as often as we do. Experts believe that we “over-bathe” [4] in modern society, which is actually counterproductive as it involves washing away protective substances in our skin and hair which actually protect and deodorize us. Having said this, however, bathing fulfils an important psychological need for many of us, and it’s certainly true that keeping ourselves clean makes others think much better of us. With this in mind, here are a few natural products which you can use to keep yourself fresh and lovely.
Honey – It may sound odd, given how sticky the stuff is, but you can wash your hair in honey. It’s great at getting rid of unwanted grease in your hair and, unlike modern detergent shampoos, it does it without stripping your hair of essential oils. It’s a fantastic conditioner as well. Use 1 part honey to 3 parts water, and add some essential oils should you feel like a sensual, scented experience. Lavender oil works particularly well. Carrot seed oil is also great for hair nourishment, if you have trouble with brittle hair and frizz.
Apple Cider Vinegar – Apple cider vinegar is a great all-purpose cleanser for both hair and body. It’ll get rid of any grime and dirt with ease. If you fear that you’ll smell a bit ‘vinegary’ after use, then add a few drops of some scented herbal oil.
Saponins –  Saponins are herbs which can be induced to lather up rather like soaps, and have similar cleansing benefits. Examples include wild yam, ginseng, licorice, horsechestnuts, alfalfa, sarsaparilla and lily of the valley. These (usually the roots) must be mashed, and added to water to make a pleasing lather which you can use to wash your face and body.

Top Antibiotic Herbs:

Target: All Main Systems
Survival: Medicine
Antibiotic herbs a essential for defeating internal or external bacteria infections as well as assisting in defeating viral infections. Yes a viral infection needs bacterial nutiemts  to mutate infected cells. 

Secondly, Powerful antiseptic herbs such as cinnamon and clove also asset in finalizing and defeating the virus. 
Therfore, now a cellar environment that is sanitized healthy cells can now replace the infected  defected herbs . Again this is why Grapefruit seed extract and Oregon Grape, are powerful antiseptics as well because of there high levels of antioxidant properties, thus also defeating the oxidation(s) of cells. Anti-oxidents and antiseptic herbs have simlar effects on the human anatomy Molecularly speaking. Anti- oxidants inhibit the oxidation of cells, joints, and muscles and keep them in optimal operational health through a natural process through the enzyms or combination of enzyms within a herbal molecular makeup.


If there are more than one herbs with the same property(s) why then do we need more than the one? That is simple the enzymes present in each herb that makes up the molecular composition will have different effects not only on the disease, infection, or aliment but according to the current individuals molecular composition it will effect them differently molecularly speaking example. green tea has powerful antioxidant properties  but the orac value is only 50,000 now clove has a chemical compound of phenyl-propanoids and can produce an orac value of 10 million. and they both possess antioxidant properties now also a herb can produce more than one property like clove because of its enzymes present and high orac levels it also possess anesthetic and antiviral properties.

Thirdly, Combining multiple types of herbs supply the body with more natural enzymes to defeat the infection,disease,or aliment(s)
A List of Good antibiotic herbs (Short List):

  • Garlic
  • Thyme
  • Clove
  • Oregano
  • Echinacea
  • Mullein
  • Horehound
  • Grapeseed Extract

However, during some time members in your group are experiencing pains maybe tooth ache , headaches, anxiety, panic attacks general nervousness or even a sprained ankle from collecting wood for a fire for your camp or helping someone else.  or even a laceration and how about keeping those bugs away so you can bug out and sleep at night or day particularly during the summer.

“Diabetic Herbs”
Target: All Main Systems
Survival: Medicine

There is hope and happiness for those of you who have diabetes and seek alternative solution. The key is to know and understand what diabetes is.


In short: diabetes is the malfunction of normal distribution of insulin into the blood.
So why and what can potentially cause this?
First off a damaged or dysfunctional adrenal gland.
Damaged Alpha nodes in the liver caused by overstressed nodular activity(s) from a poor diet, genetics,an injury, excessive alcohol or from excessive and abusive uses of pharmaceutical drugs. These Alpha nodes in the liver can handle so much stress before they are subjected to failure(s). irregular and unregulated insulin flow to the pancreas for further delivery of insulin throughout the body as needed.
God Bless,

So what can we do to help all this out but naturally?

First, you need to slowly and safely “DETOX” your system from toxins and neurotoxin, this will help elevate the stress’ that cause your pancreas and liver and main systems to wok “HARDER” to deliver a consistent and normal regulated insulin flow as called upon without any resistances from stress’.

Second, to supply Nutritional Supplementation to aid in the prep for healing the damage particularly from applied stress’, abusive alcohol and substances and even physical injury.

Thirdly, Vitamin particularly B complex for Central Nervous System support it is the Central Nervous system through healthy neurotransmissions to the liver that also partake in the call and delivery of a normal insulin flow as well as the recall and to what rate of degree both are applied.

Finally, Healing needs to take place and over time through all of the above this can only happen and may require sacrifice but efforts will pay off.

So Which herbs do what and can play a major roll in all of the above?

Detox: dandelion, burdock root, milk thistle,  Turmeric root, pure lemon juice, pure lime juice, Goldenseal root, Cinnamon, Cayenne

Nutritional supplementation: Slippery Elm Bark, Spiruilla, Chlorela,

Vitamin Supplementation: Bee Pollen, Rose Hips, Elderberry,

Poison Ivy and Oak Herbs

Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Viniger: 1 tablespoon of Raw Unfiltered apple cider vinegar will draw out the poisons and help relive the itching.
Jewel Weed: helps stop the spreading of poison ivy this plant grows near poison ivy sort of like beauty and the beast. crush this plant and spread it on effected areas.

Aloe Vera: will help sooth the irritated rash

The important thing is to stay calm and cool Yes, cool do not drink anything hot for it will bring your blood to the surface

Tea Tree Oil diluted with a little bit of water and applied to the effected areas with a cotton ball. The relief could be quite quick.!!!

Grindelia (Grindelia spp.). While working first-aid tents at events like the Rainbow Gathering, 7Song turns to grindelia for cases of poison ivy. He says grindelia, a perennial herb native to the southwestern United States, works for most people. Kathy Abascal, director of the Botanical Medicine Academy in Vashon, Washington, and co-author of Clinical Botanical Medicine (Mary Ann Liebert, 2003), adds, “It seems to reduce the itching and the inflammation.” Grindelia is not well studied, so we don’t know how it specifically works. Apply grindelia tincture straight on the rash or dilute it slightly with water. This should make the itching stop immediately, 7Song says. If it doesn’t, time for another trick

Goldenseal: Make a paste out of the powdered plant preferably the roots and apply to effected area ill help with rash detoxing( drawing out the poisons (all because of its natural antiseptic properties.
Oatmeal Paste:  Make the oatmeal thick dry and pasty and apply it to the effected areas this will help dry it out a help stop the itching.
Bentonite Clay:Rosemary Gladstar, the Vermont-based founder of United Plant Savers and author of Rosemary Gladstar’s Family Herbal (Storey, 2001), once used her toothpaste in desperation on a nasty bout of poison oak. It worked better than her tried-and-true remedies. The toothpaste company is no longer in business, but you can make a paste yourself by mixing green clay, salt and white vinegar, then adding a few drops of peppermint essential oil. Clay can be used in many ways. Any type will help draw out irritating oils and soothe your itch. Even mud will do in a pinch, says Andrea Candee of South Salem, New York, and author of Gentle Healing for Baby & Child (Pocket Books, 2003). 7Song generally uses bentonite (available at health-food stores and herb shops) because it is strong and cheap. Mix it with your choice of soothing and disinfecting herbs, like slippery elm and goldenseal. Gladstar sometimes adds a few drops of tea tree or lavender essential oil. “You can make [the clay] ahead of time. It won’t dry out as long as the lid is on tightly,” Gladstar says. Spread the damp clay on your rash as often as needed and let it dry there. You also can use this clay on mosquito and black fly bites

Target: Muscular Skeletal System
Survival: Medicine
“Herbs for Back Pain” 

 Excessive walking or improper exercise techniques can stress out nerves and even cause a pinching effect( the restriction of blood flow and nutrients to the nerve and especially nerve endings which are most sensitive and cause discomfort. Added stress on the nerves can cause pain(s0 within the Central Nervous System. and may even cause a chemical imbalance and lack of oxogen supply to the brain because of poor circulation and can cause several levels of headache and arthritic discomfort throughout the body . Another factor is that poor hydration and mineralization absorption will also take effect because of the added stress on the immune system which in then stresses the Adrenal glands. To remedy this solution as best as possible we need to cut any inflammation(s) down and provide a full spectrum of B complex vitamins as well a nutritional support to the entire nerve. 

 Steps to take to help with back pain: 

  • Increase blood circulation  for nutrition support 
  • Decrease any internal inflammation(s) to aid healing process through natural herbal enzymes.
  • Stop any spasmodic activity. 
  • Increase levels of oxogen to the brain in the blood 
  • Provide a natural healing process of Nerves, Nerve Endings, Muscles & Tendons.

 Beneficial Herbs: 

  • White willow bark 
  • Ginger 
  • Turmeric 
  • Goldenseal 
  • Raw domestic Bee pollen 
  • Skullcap 
  • Cayenne 
  • Wheat grass 
  • Spirulina 
  • Chlorella 
  • Dandelion 

Essential Oils: 

  • Peppermint: Helps calm Muscle spasms with it’s antispasmodic properties 
  • Cypress: This will help with sore tendons and nerves.  
  • Lavender: Its anti micro bile properties will help with pain and calming the central nervous system creating a natural relation 
  • Clove bud: This will help with localized pain due to the anesthetic properties 
  • Ginger: A powerful anti inflammatory herb . Take a piece of fresh cut ginger root and rub the fresh cut side on effected area(s) 
  • Marjorum: Helps promote a healthy cardiovascular system, help with tired and sore muscles, Calms the Central Nervous System.

 TEAS:Teas to drink to help with back related pain. Ginger Tea Turmeric Tea Blackstrap molasses tea White willow bark tea.

 Poultices: 1. To make a poultice take a cup of water ,
Bring water to a hard boil then add about 4 oz. of dried herb and bring down to a low simmer and let reduce to 1/2 about 20-30 mins.
Remove pot from heat and let cool to a warm temperature Strain and press ( I use a simple potato ricer to press out all the concentrates
Take a 4×6 or 6×8 muslim bag and soak in pressed herb water Fill the bag with the damp herbs and apply to effected area as needed .

Note: To keep the poultice bag warm throughout the day take the herb filled sack, re soak it in remaining herbal reduction(concentrate) and put it in a steamer for 5-10 minutes and reapply this will also act as a wet heat and will give better absorption warm temperatures are beneficial because they open up the pores system thus increasing absorption(s). 

 2. Another way is to soak a large gauze pad not to soaked with the diluted essential oil or diluted essential oil blend and apply to effected area and wrap with an old but clean cotton shirt wrap gauze roll. Comfrey Ginger Lavender Cypress

  Salves, Balms & Liniments 
Making a antispasmodic or anti inflammatory salve to will be beneficial,  watch and read  our salve making video and post here. and in addition to the lavender you can add other pure uncut essential oils such as ginger, cypress, peppermint clove, marjoram and to the same with a homemade liniment out of lard or coconut oil and add other pure uncut essential oils.and wrap well 2-3 times daily this will help with pain inflammation and any spasms.
