Pandemics have been part of man kinds existence since we first climbed out of trees and figured out that id we put a seed in the ground a plant grew in the same spot. The term pandemic is tossed around by people every year that the seasonal flu comes out. We have been hit by Flu, TB, Measles Hanta Cholera, Pertussis you name it and we’ve had it. Prior to the mid 20th century most pandemic outbreaks have killed millions of people. By the middle of the 1950’s we learned about antibiotics. More importantly we learned about transmission vectors and how to break the chain. By the 1960’s it was thought that world devastating pandemics were a thing of the past. We were lulled into a false sense of security.
By the 1980’s new and more deadly bugs were gathering strength. No not HIV. It was TB. The first of the SARS viruses. Bird flu, MRSA and the grandparents of the drug resistant bacteria.
Enter the early 21st century. HIV is on the back burner, but drug resistant TB. Mutated flus and SARS and now MERS. Measles. The childhood disease is back with a vengeance.
Currently things are semi under control. Resistant TB and Flu bugs are held at bay with huge doses of the best antibiotics we can make.
Until the last straw is laid on the frail back of our society. The complex drug cocktails that have kept the bigs at bay are running out. And the resistant bacteria marches across our land with the ferocity of the Mongols invading the steppes of Russia. People say that back in the 18th 19th and 20th century that used herbal medicine failed to stop the bacteria and viruses of the time. What chance does it have against the super bugs WE created of the 21st century?
A lot. We have learned HOW they work. How the live. What the need to live and what will kill them. Modern herbal healers have taken the knowledge of the past. Centuries of herbal knowledge have been combined with what we have learned in the last 50 years of modern medicine.
Berberine is an effective antibiotic. Used correctly.
Star Anise is an effective anti viral. Taken at the right time. How do I know? The Active ingredient shikimic acid is found in the Star Anise, spruce fir and pine trees. The prescription cost of Tamiflu is 140 bucks a 30 day supply.
Herbal medicine taught correctly and used correctly works. PERIOD. My co host Cat Ellis has put out a couple of books. One that I consider GEAR. I have 2 copies. First is Prepper’s Natural Medicine. Of
which I have 2 copies. One on my desk and one in the Bug out medical box. The next is Prepping for a Pandemic. It is in pre release and I cant wait for my copies. Do I recommend that you drop western medicine in favor of herbal medicine? No. I am asking to use BOTH. Use the proper tools and do it right!
