I’m Chuck. I am an Electrophysiology Tech a past EMT P, A old combat medic, emergency medicine instructor, wildnerness survival instructor, Firearm instructor, prepper, scoutmaster and dad. I have been in the medical field since 1982. I’ve seen the ravages that bullets will do to a body, and what sickness will do with out the proper training and medications. Currently I am watching how our medical system has been brought to it’s knees by greed and stupidity. I am not a doctor, and cant give medical advice or diagnose. But I can show you how you can take care of yourself, friends and family.
I’m Cat, and I’m a practicing herbalist and a prepper. My love of herbs began in the late 1990′s with simple cold and flu remedies and grew into a full herbal practice, including workshops and private clients. My herbal practice leans heavily on Western Traditional Herabalism (European and American herbal traditions). I’m not a doctor. I cannot diagnose or give medical advice. I am an herbalist, midwifery student, and massage therapist who recognizes the potential for emergencies where people are cut off from modern facilities, pharmacies may have nothing but empty shelves, and help is just not coming. I also see herbal medicine as a viable and vitally important backup during such times. It is my goal to train as many herbalists to serve their communities as possible. (Webmaster note.

Hey Chuck, its Ivar, forgot to grab your e-maill addy. If you are wondering why I shut facebook down ask Cat, tell her I said it was okay to explain. She spent sometime on the phone with me. I do want to stay in touch though. Still floating through and catching up on this site. At least without the distraction I will have more freetime to do so.
