I’m NOT what some people would call a Doomsday prepper. I don’t think the world is going to end anytime soon, but I do believe that all of us will end up facing some hardships during our lifetime.
Me personally…this is what I prep for. I don’t like to place my family’s lives in the hands of others. I like to think I am in charge of my own destiny, just as our grandparents and great-grandparents were in charge of theirs.
They stockpiled food for winter and for dark times. They created their own remedies from wild plants so when they couldn’t afford meds during the Great Depression, they could still treat injuries and diseases.
The crisis we are all prepping for is what folks 150 years ago called daily life:
no electricity, no modern medicines, no refrigerators, no phones, no Internet, no pharmacies, no Walmart, and no effective law enforcement.
But they got things done—or else we wouldn’t be here!
What it basically comes down to is that previous generations were a lot more self-reliant than we are. That’s why America has never been more vulnerable than it is today.
While most people nowadays tend to be obsessed with everything “new” — with technology, smartphones, social media, and cars that drive themselves — I was always fascinated by what I think was a happier, wiser and healthier America: a country of more independent people, who held down jobs and could care for their families, who took responsibility for themselves and were not looking for a handout, who were proud of being American, and who dreamed of building a better country.
Progress made since their time has brought us so many good things, but in many ways, things used to be much better. We are smarter—but we’re not wiser. We own more stuff—but it’s stuff we don’t really need. And we live longer lives—but we’re not healthier.
The saddest thing is that right now we’re sitting on the edge of oblivion. We no longer know our forefathers’ skills, nor do we remember how to survive without electricity, supermarkets or pharmacies.
The truth is we have never been more disconnected from life, from the world, from the soil, from the trees, and from our own souls.
And we are the last generation that can truly do something about it. This is why I put together my first book The Lost Ways: to save our forefathers’ survival skills and I co-authored The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies: to save the most powerful remedies that we’ve lost to history. I had to sift through mountains of information, and I don’t think I could have done any of it without the help of the notes made by my late grandfather, who was the most gifted natural healers I’ve ever known.
My ultimate goal with this guide is to put a “home doc”, in every household. Home docs are self-reliant people that know how to take care of themselves and their communities when the situation calls for it.
We do not recommend or advocate the everyday use of pet or fish antibiotics. We suggest stockpiling these antibiotics and using them only in case of an extraordinary event like an Apocalypse that changes the World as we know it, leading to the collapse of society, medical system, law and order AND the dissolution of the social fabric.
