Herbal Medicines for Ongoing Health

Herbal Medicines

Guest Article by NRP

I will be the first to admit I know about 1/1000 of what I would like to know about Homeopathic Medicine, Herbal Medicines, and Herbology. Also I am by no means a Doctor or claim to know lots about this topic.

But I do know that the ability to “Heal” will be of GREAT importance in the ‘Aftermath’ of any potential long lasting SHTF.

   

So, herbal medicines, what exactly is all the uproar about?

Well let me first say this; I have seen first-hand what “Modern Medicine’s” hack/cut, Radiation/Chemo Drugs/Therapy Cut/Paste ‘can’ and will do. Also look at the long term problems which the “Take A Pill” society has created. First thing that comes to mind, the current Opioid crises that’s overtaking the Country and World. How about all the people that Doctors get hooked on Meds, and than never follow up on?

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not dissing Modern Medicine. Are there situations where Modern Medicine is warranted? Yes very much so. And a LOT of people have lived to a ripe old age after such treatment.

I have also seen the opposite side. All of the “Doctors” mistakes and “accidental deaths” caused by carelessness, misdiagnoses, abuse, and just all out incompetency.

** Johns Hopkins study estimates that more than 250,000 Americans die each year from medical errors. May 3, 2016 **

In the same breath Herbal Medicines if abused can kill, I did a search but found no “actual” numbers, but it’s estimated that close to 23,000 hospital ‘visits’ each year are cause by “Overdosing” on herbs. Please note; that’s 1/10 the number KILLED by ‘medical errors’.

 

Herbal Medicines as Alternative To Drugs?

Is there an alternative to the “Drug” side of the medical field?

YES there is a very good alternative, Herbal and Homeopathic medicines.

After reading and seeing first-hand the hype of Herbal medicines, I more understand the “crazy’s” and their thinking.

I personally have become convinced after seeing a good friend with a PSA level of over 45 reduce the levels to 12 with just Asian Herbal Medicines within just 2 mouths.

Here is my first hand latest experience:
Turmeric.

I was just weeks from becoming a Drug addict from my Doctor for the pain and swelling. Ken did an article here on Turmeric, and within one month I had practically zero inflammation left. After 2 months I have all but forgotten the arthritic. I did revisit my Doctor and he was totally amazed. BTW, he is no longer my Doctor.

How Do You Take Your Turmeric?

NRP’s Turmeric Recipe:

1 Cup of Turmeric Powder, this is a powerful Anti-Inflammatory
1/4 cup Ginger Power, a good Anti-Oxidant
1/4 cup Garlic Powder, also a good Anti-Oxidant
1/4 cup Cayenne Pepper Powder, supposedly very good for the Cardio System.
1/4 cup Black Pepper very fine grind, this helps the absorption of the other Herbs

Mix well in a glass bowl and store in a glass container

1 teaspoon with V8 every morning.

YES herbal does work.

 

Herbal Medicines for Survival & Preparedness

So what does this have to do with Modern Survival you ask?

Imagine for starters that TSHTF and no longer can one get simple medical for the common cold or fever.

How about an open wound from a bite or simple accident.

And for the Rambo’s out there, a fresh GSW.

Will you have the knowledge to treat the illness, wound, infection, or virus? Or will someone simply die from a common cold?

What about your ongoing health issues such as Diabetes, Heart problems, ulcers, hemorrhoids, common cold?

What about “if” the supply trucks stop rolling? Would there be a way to find Herbal Medicines to “carry you through” for a year, longer?

My guess would be yes, especially considering that 95+% of modern medicines are derived originally from Plants aka Herbal Medicine.

How about ongoing health? Do you take Vitamins or ‘supplements’ that are simply chemicals? Or do you go for the Herbal?

As I said in the beginning, I’m 50 miles behind what I want to know about Herbal, but I have a very STRONG will to learn.

How about you?
What is your opinion on Alternatives to chemicals that our current doctors push?
