by ShepherdFarmerGeek, Survival Blog:

What follows is my humble attempt at drawing connections between deep threads in world events. The links I’ve provided are just tiny samples of the information that is available online. This isn’t meant to be a thoroughly-documented report, but one potential scenario that some might have overlooked in the current enthusiasm for our new president. Some of this is a bit dated, but it points to the general reaction of Trump as president. This is my family’s current “Planning Scenario Number One,” and the pieces of the puzzle that fit so far.

Build your own first aid kit with natural remedies

by Tracey Watson, Natural News:

There is no doubt that many parts of the globe are in crisis, and to many it seems as though a natural or man-made disaster could strike in their area at any moment. While it is always important to have certain basic first aid items like Band-Aids and bandages on hand in case of emergency, there are other, more natural items that can prove to be worth their weight in gold when disaster strikes. After all, it may not always be possible to run out to a pharmacy or grocery store to purchase medical supplies.

Your natural first aid kit can be used effectively to treat a variety of conditions, including burns, cuts, Poison Ivy and other rashes, bug bites, stomach upset and diarrhea, bleeding and bruises, to name a few.

Some suggested survival kit items include:

What to Eat When You’re Broke

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

The lower your income is, the more difficult it is to be particular about what you feed your family.

This probably isn’t an earth-shattering revelation to anyone, but if you feel like experimenting, try to buy a week’s worth of healthy food for a family on a budget of, say, $50-75.  Food manufacturers that target lower-income shoppers with more affordable products tend to include more GMOs and toxic ingredients in their offerings.

Sometimes, it just isn’t possible to stick to my usual food restrictions.  Generally speaking, I avoid:

Essential oils are gaining in popularity, finally beginning to get much-deserved recognition for their health benefits.

Candida Auris: The Incredibly Deadly Fungus KILLING People Across the Planet

by Dagny Taggart, The Organic Prepper:

A “mysterious and dangerous” fungal infection has emerged, and experts are warning that it is a serious global health threat.

In A Mysterious Infection, Spanning the Globe in a Climate of Secrecy, The New York Times outlines the terrifying details:

The germ, a fungus called Candida auris, preys on people with weakened immune systems, and it is quietly spreading across the globe. Over the last five years, it has hit a neonatal unit in Venezuela, swept through a hospital in Spain, forced a prestigious British medical center to shut down its intensive care unit, and taken root in India, Pakistan and South Africa.

Tips On Buying Used Handguns

0

by Pat Cascio, Survival Blog:

I am no longer teaching NRA firearms classes, though I did that for more than 25 years, mostly giving classes for folks wanting to get their concealed handgun permit. During all those years teaching handgun classes, I had quite a few students ask me about buying used handguns.

What To Look For When Buying Used Handguns

They wanted to know what to look for. More often than not, I’d accompany them to the local gun shop and help them in selecting a used handgun and talk with them about what to look for in a good used handgun.

I’m a sucker for a good deal on a used handgun. I don’t have the funds to buy new firearms all the time, so when I see a used handgun that catches my eye I give it a very close inspection, most of the time.

5 Herbs that are proven to naturally lower your blood pressure

0

by Rhonda Johansson, Natural News:

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a medical condition wherein the force of the blood pushing against the walls of your blood vessels is consistently too high. Being hypertensive puts you at a greater risk of developing a heart attack or stroke. The primary way high blood pressure causes harm is by stressing out your heart and blood vessels – they have to work harder and less efficiently just to keep you alive.

Over time, this workload damages delicate tissues inside your arteries. This contributes to the formation of bad cholesterol along the tears in the artery walls, narrowing the passages where blood flows.

The MASSIVE differences between healthy sea salt and unhealthy iodized, irradiated table salt

by S.D. Wells, Natural News:

Trying to eat healthy and avoid all the major pitfalls of American food? Maybe you would like to sprinkle some aluminum, chlorine bleach, and ferrocyanide on your meal to add a little “flavor?” Sounds delicious. That’s what you’re getting when you use white, iodized, commercial table salt – the same salt that’s on nearly every restaurant table from sea to shining sea. The processing of table salt removes nearly all vital minerals and adds chemicals that cause cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Turmeric is nutritional “gold” for your brain

0

by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

The Indian spice turmeric has been getting a lot of attention lately for its health benefits, and many people now take turmeric supplements regularly for their anti-inflammatory effects. However, did you know that curcumin, the main bioactive component in turmeric, has outstanding benefits for the brain? It boasts several brain-friendly properties that are earning it the nickname of nutritional “gold” for your brain.

There are a lot of ways that curcumin enhances brain health. Because it boosts the flow of blood to your brain, it can improve your concentration and memory. In fact, one study found that a single dose of curcumin led to significant improvements in healthy senior citizens’ working memory and attention in the space of just an hour. Another study concluded that curcumin supplements can improve blood flow just as well as physical exercise.

Post-Collapse Survival Bartering: 10 Items That Will Be Worth Their Weight in Gold

0

by Jeremiah Johnson, Ready Nutrition:

As a nation, we are faced with a host of different problems from many directions, both domestically and internationally. The statistical improbability of a disaster occurring (such as war or economic collapse) decreases with the passage of time and the addition of other factors that lead into such. For a couple of good “primers” on collapse and warfare (overall effects on societies and civilizations), I recommend two by Jared Diamond: “Guns, Germs, and Steel,” and “Collapse.”

When any kind of society or civilization becomes unraveled, usually the nation’s cash loses its value within days at the most. We’re going to cover a few general categories of items to keep for barter (meaning “regular” or frequent trade), citing individual examples within each category. In The Prepper’s Blueprint, the idea of bartering was covered extensively and it isn’t always acquiring tradable goods, but also tradable services.

Want To Survive The Coming Squeeze? With Food Shortages Ahead And Food Prices Set For Massive Escalation, This Is Why Preppers Are Much Better Geared For Survival

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

The damage from the massive flooding in the midwest isn’t only affecting farmers, many of which say they may not be able to overcome the severe losses, but trickles down to consumers as expected food shortages will cause an extreme increase in prices at the grocery store across the nation.

Agriculture Secretary Sunny Purdue estimates that up to a million calves have been lost to the flooding, from what Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts calls the “most widespread disaster we have had in our state’s history.”  While losses are still being tallied, initial estimates by Nebraska Department of Agriculture are expected to exceed $400 million in crops and more than $400 million in lost livestock. Those numbers are projected to rise.
