"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." -- Hippocrates

While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration may not recognize such alternative
treatment modalities, the father of medicine, Hippocrates of Kos, did! He was the first
to recognize that the signs and symptoms of a disease were caused naturally, by the
reactions of the body to the disease process, and not as punishments by God. If the
causes were natural, then the remedy could also be a natural one.

fresh drinking water. You'll need to make sure you have a plan to clear parasites out
of the body! Fresh Green Black Walnut Wormwood Complex provides the answer.

old herbal tonic to promote healthy microbial activity.

Prepper Herbal Supplement #2: Elderberries.

properties.  The berries and flowers are rich in flavinoids, which are believed to
provide its therapeutic effects.Black Elderberry Syrup has been virologist tested as a
natural and effective way to fight viral infections.

Prepper Herbal Supplement #3: Echinacea.  
Best known for its properties of boosting immune function, echinacea works by
helping white blood cells and lymphocytes to protect the body against invading
organisms, unlike antibiotics, which are directly lethal to bacteria, echinacea makes
immune cells more efficient in attacking bacteria, viruses and abnormal cells. What's
more, an immunization is active only against a specific problem, while echinacea
stimulates the overall activity of the cells responsible for fighting all kinds of infection.

An easy pick for immunity boosting is Echinacea (an essential oil from the
Coneflower). Echinacea has long been known to help shorten colds, and help fight
infections, but there are so many other potent herbs, vitamins and foods, so keep

Prepper Herbal Supplement #4: Goldenseal.

respiratory, digestive and urinary tracts, Goldenseal is ideal to for preppers to stock.
Because of its anti-microbial activity, goldenseal has a long history of use during the
winter season and is often used in combination with Echinacea.  Read more about
GoldenSeal and other
botanical antibiotic alternatives.

Prepper Herbal Supplement #5: turmeric (heart and arthritis
support, as well as gastrointestinal support).
Turmeric helps maintain healthy joints, healthy heart, cardiovascular, and liver
function. As a tonic for the liver and gastrointestinal system, turmeric delivers a high
concentration of powerful antioxidants. In uncertain times, preppers will be eating
foods outside their normal diet and will want to support their gastrointestinal system
with turmeric. A common ingredient of Indian cuisine (curry dishes), turmeric has
been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy for pain relief and joint health,
too.   Read more about turmeric! (Do NOT take turmeric during pregnancy.)

Prepper Herbal Supplement #6: milk thistle (liver).
Milk thistle is among the healing plants for liver conditions: it improves bile flow and
simultaneously stimulates digestion and detoxifies (thereby providing support for
dealing with cirrhosis of the liver). The reason milk thistle is important to preppers is
for milk thistle is an excellent tonic for anyone under stress. As well, milk thistle can
help people with Type 2 diabetes. Women with fibroid tumors or endometriosis; or
cancers of the breast, uterine, and ovaiies should not take milk thistle.

Prepper Herbal Supplement #7: grapefruit seed extract.
Grapefruit Seed Extract has antimicrobial, antibacterial and antifungal properties of
interest to preppers.

Prepper Herbal Supplement #8: Saw palmetto.

germs and improve circulation. Learn

booster #2).

So there you have it: follow Hippocrates and let thy food by thy medicine!
