Prepping Doesn’t Have to Be Overwhelming


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

If there’s one thing you can say about prepping, it’s that your work is never done. There’s always something new to buy, some skill you need to learn, or a disaster that you know you just aren’t quite ready for yet. It can be downright overwhelming, especially if you happen to be new at the whole thing, but also, even when you’ve been at it for years.

It’s enough to make some folks just give up. They know too much to completely turn a blind eye to the happenings of the world, but they just can’t summon up the energy to work at preparing on a regular basis.

Flood Warnings In New York: Are You Prepared For A Flash Flood?


by Sara Tipton, Ready Nutrition:

In a previous article, we wrote about homes in a U.S. that happen to fall in disaster zones. Now, it seems, with the recent flash floods on the East coast, many families are finding themselves in a flooded disaster zone.

Thunderstorms have extended the flash flood warnings on the East coast in recent days. Heavy floodwaters have engulfed parts of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, washing out roadways, submerging vehicles and forcing water rescues. Would you be prepared for a flood? If not, don’t worry. We have a few tricks that can help you map out a survival plan for a flood emergency.

The Gunfighter’s Guide: Lessons Learned the Hard Way- Part 3


by The Grumpy Gunfighter, Survival Blog:

This article is a compilation of lessons I have learned, either from real world events or through lessons taught to me by the men and women I served with. Their advice has saved my life on a few occasions, and perhaps this gunfighter’s guide, also developed from lessons learned the hard way, may do the same for you one day.

In part 1, I covered three main topics– cars and guns, the scorpion vs. box jellyfish philosophies, and close quarters battle takeaways. Today we will move into fighting in larger spaces, specifically the backwoods and move onto other topics also. Then, in part 2, the topics included backwoods fighting, dealing with intense stress, practicing like you play, and continuing the fight as long as you are able to move.

Now, it is time to move into some equipment details. Let’s take a look at our kit next.

Food VS Gold in SHTF

Scientists WARN: The food riots will begin in just one generation, and human civilization will collapse

by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

Many of us feel that society will collapse eventually, but lots of people don’t think it will happen during their lifetime. Although no one wants to believe that we could one day face such a scenario, a scientific model suggests that it could be coming a lot sooner than we think.

A scientific model from a team at the Global Sustainability Institute at Anglia Ruskin University shows how our current way of life is simply not sustainable and that there could be dramatic global repercussions for continuing down the same path. This is something that their calculations show will occur if society fails to react to the growing food crises by changing its behaviors and policies for the better.

What If…? 5 Unlikely Disasters & What You Should Know About Them


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Statistically speaking, some events are rare or highly unlikely. (Thankfully!). But as any preppers worth their salt will tell you, there’s really no such thing as an impossible event. And science agrees – just check out David J. Hand’s The Improbability Principle: Why Coincidences, Miracles, and Rare Events Happen Every Day. It’s an article about how extremely improbable events actually happen all the time. Unfortunately, this also includes supposedly unlikely disasters.

These events shouldn’t be the focus of your preparedness. You should concentrate on things that have a greater chance of occuring.

Food Storage: The Prepper’s Three Layer Plan

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Three is the luckiest number when it comes to prepping. There’s the old saying, “One is none, two is one, three is better.” There’s the Survival Rule of Three which is that you can hang on for “3 minutes without air, 3 days without water, and 3 weeks without food.” And then there’s the approach that in all things survival, you need a layer of three, including food storage.

For example, Selco wrote an article a while back about layers when it came to bugging out. Basically, you need a layer close to you (as in on your person), a layer for more intense situations within easy reach, and another one someplace in your bag.

Nutritional therapist and chef Christine Bailey recommends a “happiness diet” that will boost your mind in three days, as reported by The Daily Mail.

According to the World Health Organization(WHO), there are at least 300 million people of all ages who suffer from depression worldwide. It is the leading cause of disability globally, and primarily contributes to the overall global burden of disease.

Traditional medications are prescribed to improve symptoms of depression, but they also have side effects. Antidepressants take a while, about two to four weeks, before showing effects. Moreover, symptoms such as sleep, appetite, and concentration problems improve before mood lifts, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Instead of spending money and risking your life on these prescription drugs, a variety of foods can help lift up your mood and treat depression.

A traditional plant native to Thailand effectively manages obesity, according to new study


by Michelle Simmons, Natural News:

Broken bones tree (Oroxylum indicum), a traditional plant native to Thailand, can potentially be used to manage obesity, according to a study published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

For the study, researchers from Suranaree University of Technology in Thailand derived the extract of broken bones from the fruit pods of the plant. They looked at the effects of broken bones plant extract on the adipogenic and biomolecular change in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. They used the cell line 3T3-L1 to establish the potential toxic effects of broken bones plant extract during adipogenesis, the differentiation of pre-adipocytes into adipocytes.

SIG Sauer P220 Desert Model


by Sarah Latimer, Survival Blog:

I’m a real sucker for super-accurate handguns, and the SIG Sauer line-up has always proven themselves in this respect. We tested the P220 Desert model .45 ACP handgun from SIG and found it to be a winner.

Impressed with SIG Sauer P220 Imported Under Browning Name

I’ll admit, I haven’t always been on top of the firearms game, when it came to the newest models out there. Even today, I don’t have the time to browse every gun maker’s website once a week or so to see what is new and exciting. I obtained my first FFL in 1980 and started out just doing gunsmithing, but eventually I got into buying and selling firearms. It was during this time that a customer asked me to order them a Browning BDA .45 ACP! I have to admit, I didn’t know what kind of pistol that was, until I actually received it for the customer. It was a SIG Sauer P220 .45 ACP handgun that was being imported under the Browning name. I was more than a little impressed with this fine handgun when it arrived.

Powerful naturopathic solutions for diabetes

by Michelle Simmons, Natural News:

Diabetes is increasingly becoming rampant today. This is especially seen in the U.S. where more than 30 million people currently have the disease, and more than 1.7 million new cases diagnosed every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Moreover, 84 million people aged 20 and older have prediabetes. If you are one of these people who have diabetes or prediabetes, the best way to treat your condition is through natural therapies.

Type 2 diabetes, which is the most common type of diabetes, is triggered mainly by excess weight, physical inactivity, and a diet rich in sugar. This should be treated naturopathically, which can lead to a reduced use of prescription drugs, according to Dr. Mona Morstein, an expert on alternative therapies for diabetes. In an article published on the website, Morstein shared how naturopathy can be beneficial to diabetics.
