Cat Ellis is an herbalist and preparedness author from Southeastern, MA. Cat is the author of Prepper’s Natural Medicine and Prepping for a Pandemic, and teaches evidence-based herbal medicine courses for self-reliance.
Cat is also an urban homesteader, beekeeper, and midwifery student. In addition to being a long-time fan of TSP, Cat Ellis hosts a weekly online radio show, Herbal Prepper Live, every Sunday evening on www.PrepperBroadcasting.com.
She joins us today to discuss why people need to become more self-reliant by learning herbal medicine. Our medical system is just as vulnerable as any other of our systems. The CDC estimates that 1 in every 2 adults in the US have a chronic illness. A tremendous number of our medications are manufactured in China.
What would happen if shipping or shut down like the recent attack that disabled shipping giant Maersk, but for a longer period? That’s a lot of sick people without medication. Herbs, however, can be made into safe and effective medicine. But, the time to learn the skills to do so is now.
