Primitive Skills, Better Prepared
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

3-20-16 Primitive Skills ShowThis week on Herbal Prepper Live, we’re talking to Michael Douglas of the Maine Primitive Skills School. Hear from one of the field’s experts how primitive skills can help you both in good times and in bad.

Michael Douglas is a Registered Maine Guide.  His passion for nature, awareness, tracking, primitive skills, and philosophy, has taken him around the globe in search of teachers and opportunities to learn new skills. He is a former student of Paul Rezendes, Tom Brown Jr., Jon Young, and many others.

3-20-16 Mike-BioMike’s passion for both learning and teaching “primitive” techniques has earned him a unique reputation in the scouting community and among professional educators. After pursuing survival skills as a U.S Marine, he started his own Survival School in 1989 at the University of Maine.  In 1993 he was the recipient of the Marion Rich Waterman Mayer Award from the University of Maine College of Education.

Since then he has been a consultant for Discovery Channels’ “Dual Survivor” and was featured on National Geographics’ “Doomsday Preppers”, where he received the highest “Survivability Score” of the shows first season. He has also coached reality television participants on Naked and Afraid and has been a mentor to college students, professors, professional educators, Eagle Scouts, and television personalities.

His apprenticeship program is internationally known, offering participants from all over the world immersion in Tracking, Survival, Awareness, Bow Making, Wild Edibles, Medicinal Plants, Hunting, Trapping, and much more.  August, 2016 will mark this school’s 27th year of sharing skills with people globally.

Currently, Mike is working with the Sami of Sapmi in present day Sweden to revive their cultural tools in the context of our modern society. He also directly trains the apprentices, and instructors at the school as well as a consultant in educational, corporate and entertainment venues.

Mike credits his patient wife Karen and his children, Ryan, Dakota, and Emily, with their love and support in helping him realize his lifelong dream – teaching outdoor skills to all levels from beginners to military instructors of the craft.

The Organic Prepper, Daisy Luther
Host: Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

Organic Prepper Daisy Book Pic1On this episode, I’m joined by my good friend Daisy Luther. Daisy is a blogger, author of multiple preparedness-oriented books, and expert prepper who shares my passions for natural health and finding the enjoyment in prepping.

Daisy Luther lives in a small village in the Pacific Northwestern area of the United States. She is the author of TheOrganic Canner, The Pantry Primer: How to Build a One Year Food Supply in Three Months, and the soon-to-be-released The Prepper’s Water Survival Guide: Harvest, Treat, and Store Your Most Vital Resource.

The Organic Prepper, Daisy LutherOn her website, TheOrganic Prepper, Daisy uses her background in alternative journalism to provide a unique perspective on health and preparedness, and offers a path of rational anarchy against a system that will leave us broke, unhealthy, and enslaved if we comply. As well, Daisy is the co-founder of the website Nutritional Anarchy, and her articles are widely republished throughout alternative media. You can follow her on Facebook, Pinterest,  andTwitter.

Organic Prepper Daisy Book Pic3Recently, Daisy and I were chatting about prepping, and how prepping makes us happy. Sure, the subjects we both write about and prepare for are serious as a heart attack, but the act of prepping brings us peace of mind. And let’s face it, a lot of them are just plain fun. Prepping is important, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be miserable. Remember, many people grow a garden and hunt simply because they like to.

Organic Prepper Daisy Book Pic2Constant stress will impact your physiology. The human Nervous System was not designed to remain in a constant state of alert, and eventually, your health will pay the price. Finding satisfaction in our day to day lives is important, and our prepping activities can be a solid source of that.

So join Daisy and I as we dish about how to incorporate natural health into prepping, finding satisfaction in a colorful wall of mason jars of food, the tuberculosis outbreak at a high school in Kansas, natural and herbal remedies, and who knows what else! One thing is for sure, and that is it will be a fun hour.

Contaminated Water Survival

Click here to view the original post.

Contaminated Water Survival
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

3-5-16 Surviving Contaminated WaterIn this episode of Herbal Prepper Live, we’re talking about water borne illnesses that result from contaminated water and poor sanitation, and what to do if you or a loved one become ill.

Water is essential to life. We need to have water that is clean and safe to drink, bathe, and wash our clothes and dishes. We need safe water to wash our hands and for cooking. But, safe, clean water is often unavailable in a crisis.

Illnesses to be discussed include:

  • 3-5-16 milk-thistle- PDdysentery
  • giardiasis
  • crpytosporidiosis
  • cholera

3-5-16 Coptis_groenlandica trifoliaWe’re going to look at what causes them, what are their symptoms, and how to avoid becoming sick in the first place. We will also discuss emergency first aid you can provide, including several methods of rehydration. Finally, learn which herbal remedies you should plan on having on hand, in case you or a loved one become sick.

3-5-16 Horseradish- PDMost people never think about their water supply until they have to pay their water bill, have a leak and need a plumber, or until tragedies like heavy metal contamination of water in Flint, Michigan hit the news. There are, however, many scenarios that could cause municipal water departments all over the country to just stop processing and pumping potable water.

Even for those outside the city on their own wells, need a back up for their electrical pumps. A hacked electrical grid or an EMP could make your well useless if your pump won’t bring water to you.

3-5-16 Ginger PD2Contaminated water is a leading cause of life-threatening infections after a disaster. When our modern lives turn into third world conditions, waterborne illnesses will be one of the first challenges for survival. While disease prevention is vital, what would you do if you or a loved one became ill from contaminated water? Listen to this episode to learn more.

Plants vs. Pests!

Click here to view the original post.

Plants vs. Pests
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

Plants vs. PestsLearn how to use plants to repel venomous and disease-bearing pests, such as mosquitoes, ticks, fleas and spiders. These creepy-crawly, biting bugs, can mean anything from a minor itch to death. And while there are a number of natural remedies for many kinds of bug bites, it would be even better not to get bit in the first place.

2-28-16 51In order to avoid getting bitten by one of these pests, most people reach for the common, toxic bug repellents, such as DEET. DEET is known for its effectiveness. The only problem is that DEET can lead to health problems. This might be a mild skin irritation. But for children, DEET can spell more serious, neurological risks. DEET must be diluted for use with adults, and even more so with children. Plus, it is not to be used at all by infants under 2 months old.

2-28-16 Cat_flea_full_of_human_bloodWhere does this leave us when we are faced with the risks of mosquito-borne illnesses like the Zika virus? What about West Nile Virus, Eastern or Western Equine Encephalitis, or dengue? And what about the diseases carried by ticks and fleas. That covers everything from Lyme to plague. And let’s not forget about spiders, many of which seek shelter in firewood piles, and are attracted to the heat of a warm cabin during cold spring nights.

Do we just douse ourselves and our homes with questionable chemicals? Sometimes, DEET and such products are absolutely appropriate. They are certainly effective. But, what if we are in a TEOTWAWKI situation and supplies run out?

Join me to learn all about plants and essential oils shown to repel common pests that can make you sick. Some can be just as effective or even more effective than DEET as repelling pests. Plus, non-chemical ideas for pest control for infants who shouldn’t be exposed to any of these options.

Medicinal herbs, the ones to grow!

Medicinal herbs, the ones to grow!
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

I’ve been reading a number of blog postsMedicinal herbs Prepper's Natural Medicine lately, each listing what herbs are most important for preppers to grow in a medicinal herb garden. This is my chance to weigh in, because I think most of them have got it all wrong. Sure garlic and chamomile and thyme are wonderful, but there’s more- so much more than can and should be done.

11-8-15 Solomon's_SealAnd here is just one of many reasons why: the primaries in South Carolina and Nevada may have given us a glimpse of who will be the next President of the United States. While things could still change, the front runners are Hillary and Trump. I just finished listening to Trump promise to repeal the ironically named “Affordable Care Act”, aka ObamaCare, if he’s elected President. The Hildebeast pushed single-payer when she was the First Lady, and wants to build onto ObamaCare if elected President.

Either way, access to the medical system and how medical bills get paid, are likely to change in the next couple of years.

Whether this change will be good or not, remains to be seen. Will we still have access to only one option- sick care from our medical system? Sick care has a place. People get sick. But, the goal should be to improve and get off the maintenance medicines, something rarely seen, and not to just maintain a state of unwellness. Plus, it will still probably be expensive.

I cannot stress enough the necessity to grow your own herbs, learn to identify the medicinal plants in your area, and make your own herbal remedies. If you truly want affordable health care, this is where you start. Herbal medicine is your medicine. You have a right to grow your own herbs and make your own herbal preparations.

In this episode, I cover some of the herbs that I think are “must grow” herbs. Some of these will be antibiotic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, decongestant, analgesic, and some will repel disease or venom-carrying pests.

PreppingLast week, I found myself in a conversation that troubled me deeply. I can’t get it out of my mind. Even though I had something else in mind for this week’s episode, my mind kept coming back to this conversation. This needs to be discussed. If you consider yourself a prepper or a survivalist, then you need to listen.

The conversation was an exploration of “what if” scenarios during SHTF. What kinds of things were people willing to do and not willing to do. Much of what was said was both illuminating and alarming. And while unimaginable acts may become imaginable during such times of crisis, it left me wondering if prepping is enough.

Is it really enough just to stock up on food, water, and ammo? Is it enough to secure an rural homestead capable of functioning off the grid? Is it enough to raise your own livestock and bees? Is it to live without debt and to stock up on gold and silver? Is it enough to know how to identify plants for food and medicine, or know how to erect an emergency shelter if you suddenly had to become nomadic for a period of time?

What bothered me was that as striking and resolute as some of that conversation were, it is the fear behind the comments that is far more dangerous. It’s true, certain types of disasters may result in civil unrest; a true “Mad Max”, apocalyptic kill or be kill world. But, eventually, people begin to rebuild. People begin to carve out a new normal and build new societies and cultures, and have done so repeatedly throughout history.

The trick is, how to we get to that point? How do we get to the recovery and the rebuild? You’re planning and prepping for the survival of your family, but what kind of future will they get if you don’t also plan for the part that comes AFTER the SHTF. Are you the type who’s secretly longing for the looting and shooting, or are you the type to step up and do what’s right to make a better life post-SHTF?

Steps to Health Freedom!
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

Steps to Health FreedomHealth Freedom almost made it into the US Consititution. Over two centuries ago, we were warned, “Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a Special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom.” This warning came from Founding Father Dr. Benjamin Rush, MD

2-7-16 Dr.WhiteIt seems that Dr. Rush’s prediction has come true. We currently live in the Age of Regulation, and the regulation is not to protect the consumer. Between the FDA, the USDA, and the EPA, government has partnered with both Industry and professional associations to protect certain interests. These interests are they kinds that can pad the pockets of the agencies. Consumers and small businesses, especially cottage industries, are not invited to the party. And this doesn’t even touch on how these same agencies control the quality of our food, water, and air- all factors in our health.

We are left hoping to get a doctor we like, and maybe even hoping to see our doctor for more than 3 minutes when we’re sick. Then again, unless we are independently wealthy, and can afford Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, Midwifery, a custom herbal protocol, and other alternative or complementary care, we only have one choice for health care. Many of these beneficial therapies are not covered by insurance, and yet, their practitioners still deserve to be compensated for their expertise.

But, what if these practitioners were no longer available because regulations ran them into the ground? What can you do to learn some of these skills without breaking the budget? What steps do you need to take to break out of this Sick Care System? This episode will give you the steps to Health Freedom.

Zika Virus, should you worry?

Should you be worried about Zika virus?
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

Zika virusYou may have heard that the World Health Organization (WHO) has described the Zika virus as ”spreading explosively”. Does this mean that the Zika virus is the next big pandemic? Should you be worried about the Zika virus?

1-31-16 Microcephaly-babyZika virus was once an obscure, rare flavivirus from Uganda. Spread by certain types of mosquitoes, which are also responsible for spreading malaria, dengue, and chikungunya. Zika virus can cause micro-encephalitis (inflammation of the brain). This can result in infants which are born with abnormally small heads if their mothers contracted the virus while pregnant. The condition is permanent and often fatal.

This episode of Herbal Prepper Live will break down the origins, risk factors, transmission, and the potential regions into which the Zika virus may spread. Any herbal protocol for this virus would be pure speculation, and I wouldn’t want to rely on that.

1-31-16 3280However, mosquito control is good general disease control, and there are effective herbal and essential oil options for mosquito repellents. Since we will soon be in the gardens again, we will talk about herbs to plant around doors, under windows, near porches, and elsewhere around your garden to minimize mosquitoes.

Zika is responsible for the record number of cases of micro-encephalitis it is causing in Brazil. The Brazilian government has even suggested that women not get pregnant for a few years until the outbreak is expected to end. There is currently no travel advisory for the general population. The only recommendation currently in effect is for pregnant women avoid traveling to areas with Zika virus.

However, this is also the first time that there are cases of adults also dying of Zika. Similar to what was seen with the Middle Eastern Respiratory Virus (MERS), mortality is mostly associated with pre-existing conditions, but not all cases. Clearly, there is a lot to discuss regarding the virus.

Making Health a Habit
Fitness As If Survival Mattered Part 3
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

FitnessLast week’s episode ran over. So, this week, we’re going to pick up where we left off with different approaches to low-glycemic diets, food storage strategies, and how to avoid letting those good habits slide before they get established.

1-16-15 goldenrodEvery year people make a commitment on New Year’s Eve to eat better, move more, and lose weight. And every year, people fail. For the past 2 weeks, I’ve been talking about diet and exercise as a part of preparedness. This puts the focus on getting stronger, and not on getting thinner or worrying about a number on a scale. This change in focus will be key in staying committed.

The conversation will also build on the science behind fat loss discussed in the previous episode. When switching from being a sugar-burner to being a fat-burner, do you know how long it actually takes to before your body starts using your fat stores for fuel? The answer may surprise you, as well as keep you from giving up out of frustration.

Also, in this episode:
• A Top Ten list of tips to stay on track with getting fit.
• List of books and websites on a variety of diet, fitness, and training topics.
• How to make a salve for sore muscles with anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic herbs.

1-16-15 black-cohosh-plant-cimicifuga-racemosa-372x544 PDYou don’t have to be an athlete to start getting stronger. You can have significant mobility issues and still do a little more today than you did yesterday. You can have a chronic illness, like diabetes or hypertension, and do something today to improve it. There are those who would bring harm to your and your family. Choose to be stronger, faster, and smarter than they are.

Women with guns!

Women with guns! Ok, now that I have your attention…
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

Alpha Farm Women with gunsIf you enjoy prepper fiction, then you’ll love Annie Berdel’s book, Alpha Farm, The Beginning. Annie will be giving away a paperback copy of her book, as well as an audio copy.

Alpha Farm, The Beginning has a solid story with un-apologetically strong female characters, which is something not typically seen in most prepper fiction books. Too often, women are relegated to the sidelines in these stories. Not here.

Instead, one woman has taken it upon herself to utilize her connections to other preparedness-minded women, and institute a network of safe houses around the country in case of a disaster- or in the case of this story, multiple, simultaneous disasters. There are plenty of twists and turns, and loads of lessons for preppers in the telling of this tale.

From her Amazon Author profile:

Based in Indianapolis, Annie Berdel is a self proclaimed advocate of educating women in the art of personal protection and self reliance.

As an aspiring writer, Annie took her advocacy and dove into the dystopia genre with strong female lead characters.

A passion for firearms, herbal medicine, knives, slingshots, home canning, Kali street fighting, Kempo karate and furry animals fuels the fire and adds countless stories to be told beginning with her inaugural book “Alpha Farm, The Beginning”.

Join me and Annie Berdel as we discuss her book, personal dynamics during a crisis, prepping, guns, herbal remedies, and who knows what else!

Emergency Evacuations!

Emergency Evacuations and Lisa Bedford
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

Emergency EvacuationsEveryone wants to know when is it time to “bug out”? Leaving too soon could cost you your job or reputation. Leaving too late could cost you your life. While every circumstance is different, Lisa gave this question its own chapter and covered the topic in an orderly, logical manner.

Lisa Bedford’s new book would benefit prepper and non-prepper alike. Lisa will be giving away a copy of Emergency Evacuations during the live broadcast. In order to win, you must be in the chat room while the show airs, which is also a perfect opportunity to ask Lisa questions about the bug out scenarios that concern you most.

It is exceptionally practical, logical, and a grounded approach to preparing for very tense situations. Lisa’s book lacks the overly dramatic, doomsday feel that many prepper books have. While Emergency Evacuations addresses long term bug outs, the focus is on the most likely evacuation scenarios, such as a house fire and natural disasters, such as hurricanes and earthquakes. This makes her book ideal as a gift to non-preppers, and a gateway to other survival conversations.

12-6-15 lisabedfordLisa Bedford is the owner of the very popular preparedness website, TheSurvivalMom.com. She is also the author of the Amazon best selling preparedness book, Survival Mom: How to Prepare You Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst-Case Scenarios. Her latest book Emergency Evacuations: Get Out Fast When It Matters Most is sure to be a repeat of this success. Get the book HERE!

Cold Weather Top Five Risks

Click here to view the original post.

Top Five Cold Weather Risks to Your Heath?
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

Cold Weather snowy-drivewayAs the temperatures drop lower and lower, the risk of five types of cold weather injuries shoots up. Do you know what they are? Even more important, do you have the skills to respond to such an injury? In this episode of Herbal Prepper Live, herbalist and prepper, Cat Ellis discusses time-tested, essential first aid skills, as well as herbal medicine specific to wintertime injuries.

Depending on your age and any pre-existing conditions, you may be more at risk for certain cold weather-associated risks than others. What are the top five cold weather risks to your health? Here’s the list:
Cold Weather1. Chilblains
2. Trenchfoot (not just for trenches!)
3. Frost Nip/Frost Bite
4. Hypothermia
5. Heart Attack

Cold Weather THIS_IS_TRENCH_FOOT.In this episode, Cat will cover each or these risks, how to recognize them, pre-eisting conditions that complicate these top five cold weather risks, as well as how to prevent them from happening in the first place. Most importantly, Cat will detail what to do, and what not to do, if if help is not on the way.

Why do you need to know this? Do you live someplace that snows in the winter? Is your homestead located in a remote, rural town without quick access to a hospital? What if civil unrest made going to the hospital an impossibility? While each of these five cold-weather risks are cause to seek a doctor’s help, what would you do if that just wasn’t an option?

11-29-15 Prepper's Natural MedicineWhen most people think about a cold weather emergency kit, they think of blankets, chemical hand warmers, wool socks, and perhaps a folding shovel to go in the car in case you get stuck. It’s time to update your winter emergency kit to include caring for cold weather injuries. Hopefully, you will never need be faced with such an emergency. But if you are, this episode will teach you what supplies you need to have on hand and how to use them safely.

Bleeding, Now what?

You’re bleeding! Now what?
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

bleeding accident-743036_640Uh-oh, you’re bleeding! Perhaps it was a bite, a deep slice of a knife while processing a deer, a gun shot wound, road rash, or maybe an open sore. No matter what has caused the wound, it needs to be treated quickly and correctly. Otherwise, you are risking infection, bleeding out, and possibly your life.

Bleeding out from a major artery can cause death in ten to fifteen minutes. You don’t even have time for an ambulance to arrive, never mind get to the emergency room. The S has hit the F for you. The bleeding must be stopped ASAP, the wound properly cleaned, and when appropriate, stitched up.

The question is: do you know how? To take that one step further, does anyone in your group know how to serve as your back up in case you need care? If not, this is one show you’re going to want to listen to.

11-22-15 -While most wound victims are transported to the hospital for professional wound care. If time is of the essence, you may have to step in and be the “doctor” during an emergency. This may be necessary due to the severity of the wound, or because there is no trained medical personnel available. It is vital that you know what you are doing, because the last thing you want is to make a bad situation worse.

11-22-15 injury-903342_640This episode will cover several common types of wounds that bleed, how to stop bleeding, and how to clean the wound to prevent infection. Also covered is the how, when, where, and why of closing a wound, or should that specific wound be closed at all? Plus, what do you do if in spite of your best efforts, the wound becomes infected and is spreading.

This hour of wound care discussion will look at both conventional and herbal options for wound care and bringing the bleeding to a stop. There is no reason to take any tool off the table with something as serious as an open wound. Be sure to tune in to learn how to stop bleeding in an emergency.

DIY Herbal Cleaning Supplies
Cat Ellis “The Herbal Prepper Live

Herbal CleaningLearn to make your own non-toxic herbal household cleaners in this episode of Herbal Prepper Live. The ability to stay clean increases your chance of staying healthy. Many of these contain toxic ingredients, some suspected of being carcinogens. Plus, many people take for granted that there will always be a store to pick up some extra soap or counter top disinfectant spray.

Herbal CleaningDid you know that most soap sold in stores isn’t really soap? Or that artificial fragrances are some of the most carcinogenic (cancer causing) substances? Why use artificial cinnamon scent when you could just use real cinnamon? Have a clean, fresh homestead using pleasantly aromatic herbs and other materials you can either grow or store long term.

Herbal CleaningBeyond stocking up on soaps, shampoos, soft scrubs, and air fresheners, these things are expensive and often are loaded with questionable, potentially carcinogenic ingredients. By making your own herbal cleaning products, you can make your own for less money and without possibly increasing your risk of cancer later on. Plus, you can save the money from buying the commercially made stuff, and put those savings towards your other preps or debt reduction.

Herbal Cleaning Homemade-Dish-SoapThis episode will discuss the basics of how to make soap, shampoo, natural hand sanitizer, a degreasing spray for the stove top, soft scrubs for the tub and sinks, a disinfectant spray, homemade laundry soap, and dish soap. This will allow you to keep your body, clothing, bed linens, and surfaces clean. This alone will reduce the amount of germs in your home, and help prevent illness.

Thankfully, cleaning products made from non-toxic, natural, herbal cleaning ingredients do not contribute to the ever growing threat of drug-resistant bacteria. Even the hand sanitizer will not contribute to antibiotic resistance, unlike the common hand sanitizers we find in hospitals and on pharmacy shelves.

Learn what supplies you need to have on hand to be independent of the toxin-steeped cleaners, and how to use them to keep you and your household clean and healthy.

Arthritis, The Downfall When The SHTF

Will Arthritis Be Your Downfall When The SHTF
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

Arthritis wrist-wrapAre you prepared to care for arthritis pain after SHTF? Even if you don’t have arthritis today, odds are good that someday you will. To be clear, this episode isn’t just for people suffering from arthritis now, but for everyone that may develop arthritis in years to come.

11-8-15 pelvis and spineArthritis technically means inflammation of the joints. Arthritis, however, is an umbrella term that encompasses not only osteo-arthritis, but also over 100 rheumatic conditions effecting joints and the surrounding connective tissue. According to the CDC:

An estimated 52.5 million adults in the United States reported being told by a doctor that they have some form of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, or fibromyalgia.

The CDC also states that, “Nearly 1 in 2 people may develop symptomatic knee OA by age 85 years.” This risk goes up to 2/3rds of adults when the adult is obese. Considering the fact that the CDC also states that 1/3 of adults in the United States are obese, that is a lot of people with knee problems.

11-8-15 Solomon's_SealThe pain from arthritis can make daily tasks difficult in the best of times. What if you suddenly found yourself in the worst of times- no pharmacy, no pain medication, and your ability to eat was dependent upon how much food you could grow, hunt, trap, or forage yourself? Would you be able to survive?

11-8-15 horsetail-close-up-1394547980QL0In this live episode, we will look specifically at osteo-arthritis, deterioration of cartilage, joint inflammation and pain. There are natural ways to address the pain and inflammation, as well as dietary, and herbal approaches to help rebuild the cartilage necessary to cushion the joint.

11-8-15 Arnica and Comfrey oilsHealing arthritic joints is a long haul proposition. Then again, so is arthritis. In a world where people expect quick fixes, it is easy to understand why people may doubt if it is even possible to replenish cartilage. Given enough time and support, however, it is possible for the body to heal. Some The problem is, none of us know how much time there will be before the SHTF.

This episode will give you all the information you need to know in order to start healing your own joints. Again, this is a long haul proposition. There’s no time to lose.

The Pandemics Threat The Media Isn’t Talking About
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

11-1-15 Prepping for a PandemicsThis episode of Herbal Prepper Live will be cover the latest news on infectious diseases that should be in the news, but haven’t been. More importantly, how to do a Self Imposed Reverse Quarantine (SIRQ).

Unless you’re actively looking for information about infectious disease, you won’t hear much about pandemics threats on the nightly news these days. While the major new outlets may post a short article on their websites, the television new broadcasters have been silent on current, ongoing pandemics.

11-1-15 Hazmat_DEAThis has been the case ever since Ron Klain was appointed to the position of Ebola Response Coordinator, aka “Ebola Czar”. With no background in health or medicine, Klain’s appointment to this position is a shining example of the revolving door in politics. Within two week’s of being on the job, the media fell silent on Ebola, and any other potential pandemic disease.

There have, however, been some major developments:

  • The first recorded case of sexually transmitted Ebola
  • Ebola lives in the body much longer after symptoms are gone than previously thought.
  • 5 Super-Spreaders are responsible for 83% of the MERS cases in South Korea
  • Ebola and MERS can both relapse even after a person is “cured”.
  • New clusters of MERS patients are not from contact with camels, but from other people.
  • Military loses samples of plague and equine encephalitis viruses, and accidentally sends anthrax to the UK.

11-1-15 Food JarsSo, what can you do about any of this? Learn how to impose a successful SIRQ! This episode will cover various ways to secure your boundaries, what kinds of supplies you will need, and how long you will need them.

Pandemics happen. Between modern travel and human error, it is only a matter of time before the United States faces a major medical crisis. We have all seen how our government handles a crisis (Hurricans Katrina and Sandy jump to mind). Don’t get risk getting sick or stuck without necessary supplies.

House Fire, smoke inhalation and burn care!

House Fire, smoke inhalation and burn care!
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

House Fire FRFD TrucksA couple of months ago, our smoke detectors went off. I didn’t think much about it at first, as they had only ever done that when one of their batteries was near dead. Then the doorbell rang, and the elderly man who lives on the first floor of our house yelled through our intercom to get out, there was a fire.

I had just finished working out when the alarms went off. I had just ordered the kids to grab their emergency bags and get out, when my husband had come running up three flights of stairs from the basement to get us. The smoke was already all the way up to the third floor in the stairwell. It was so dark from the smoke, we could barely see. And as we got closer to the first floor and the fire, it got harder to breathe.

House Fire Grease fire 1st floorFor someone with a bad knee, I hustled it down those stairs as fast as I could. My husband had to carry our daughter. Even though we had run fire drills, she froze at the sight of the smoke at the top of the stairs. My husband went back in to get the elderly woman on the first floor. She was still trying to put the fire out. It didn’t click in her head that it was time to leave.

House Fire Damage through ceilingThankfully, the fire was put out quickly and didn’t get an opportunity to travel through the walls of the house. Thankfully, the only injuries were minor smoke inhalation (my husband), and some minor burns (the elderly tenant on the 1st floor).

You prepare for emergencies. That’s what preppers do. But, sometimes it takes an emergency to show you where the holes in your plans are. We found some major holes in our plans. We also did some things exactly right. We were extremely lucky, though, that this was only a minor housefire. We got to learn a lot without any major injuries or worse.

Let me share with you what we learned going through this experience, what we have changed as a result, plus some thoughts on dealing with smoke inhalation and burn care. Let our experience help you get better prepared for a house fire.

Garlic, Post-Disaster Medicine

Click here to view the original post.

Garlic for Post-Disaster Medicine
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

10-18-15 purple-garlic-flower-closeThis week’s show is dedicated to the pungent, spicy, and strong-flavored herb, garlic. The culinary and medicinal applications of garlic should warrant it a major place in any home garden. For the prepper/survivalist making plans for healthcare when our medical system may not be available, garlic could well save your life.

Think this is an exaggeration? It’s antibiotic, antidiabetic, antifungal, antiparasitical, antirheumatic, antispasmodic, diaphoretic, expectorant, and hypotensive. Preparations including garlic, can cover a wide range of serious conditions, keeping your disaster health care prep relatively simple.

10-18-15 garlic-1355275160pmpGarlic is a vulnerary, as it has a well-established history of wound care. Effective against staphylococcus and streptococcus bacteria, bringing garlic in contact with infected tissue has prevented an untold number of wounds from turning into sepsis. Garlic helps the respiratory system expel thick mucus and ease asthma symptoms. There is some evidence to suggest that it also helps to regenerate the beta cells in the pancreas, which would be critical to helping anyone with diabetes survive a disaster with no medical care.

10-18-15 dice-garlicWhat would you do if you were suddenly without either blood pressure medication? What if there were no more refills on Lipitor available from the pharmacy because there isn’t a pharmacy anymore? No one wants a heart attack or stroke. Ever. You especially do not want to have a heart attack or stroke when there is no doctor available. The cardiovascular benefits cannot be understated. Garlic is also a vasodilator, helping to lower blood pressure. Plus, this hot herb can help achieve a healthy cholesterol level.

Garlic is also a time-tested favorite remedy during the cold and flu season. Add it to decoctions, syrups, ferment garlic cloves in vinegar or in honey. It chases away the aches and pains of the flu, and does wonders for throat and ear infections.

There is still so much more to say about how garlic can help you stay healthy after a disaster. Do not wait until after SHTF to learn how to use garlic as medicine. As we all know, the time to learn a skill is before you actually need it. Start right now by listening to this episode of Herbal Prepper Live, to learn all about how to make garlic remedies.
