Erika awakens in the barn that Henry and Carol own. They have been surviving here and doing their best to continue on with life. Erika notices that Carol is moving very slowly. Carol explains that she is out of the arthritis medicine she used to take. Our survival professional with us today is Cat Ellis. Cat is going to show us how to natural treat arthritis ailments today and how to get prepared if you had to face life without western medicine answers to arthritis pain in the future.

Suggested Herbs for Treating Arthritis:

  • Anti-inflammatory – Solomon’s seal, ginger, turmeric, yerba-monsa

  • Pain Reliever – white willow, meadow sweet, birch bark, aspen, cayenne pepper, and comfrey.

  • Fluid retention reducer – black cohosh, nettle tea

How to Prepare It:

  • This is assuming that the person has no other medical issues.

  • Take 30-60 drops of tincture 3 times per day. To make the tincture:

  • Combine Solomon’s seal and white willow in equal parts with red pepper flakes in a ¼ ratio.

  • Put them in a gar and cover with Vodka (or grain alcohol like Ever-clear) for six weeks to make a tincture.

  • Make capsules of turmeric or ginger.

  • Cool or make a tea from nettle. It will assist with inflammation because it is a natural antihistamine.

Other Ways You Can Help Yourself:

 

  • Use a topical rub by mixing a combination of – arnica, comfrey, ginger, cayenne, or St. John’s Wart oil.

  • Stay hydrated

  • Let the stinging nettle sting where you are hurting. It has formic acid so after the initial sting it will feel better.

“A tear fell from Erika's eye when she began to think of the thousands of people that had died there. Why had she been spared?”

“My love of herbs began in the late 1990′s with simple cold and flu remedies and grew into a full herbal practice, including workshops and private clients. My herbal practice leans heavily on Western Traditional Herabalism (European and American herbal traditions).

 

My husband and I have been preppers “officially” since 2008. We were already interested in camping, gardening, beekeeping, and other self-reliant hobbies. A loss of income, however, kicked our interests in preparedness, homesteading, and modern survivalism into high gear.

 

It was probably inevitable that my herbalism would be influenced by being a prepper. I have spent a lot of time and effort to research the best options in extreme, last-chance scenarios. As a prepper, this is just being practical. As an herbalist, I am humbled by the power and simplicity of plant-based medicines to address truly serious conditions.

 

I’m not a doctor. I cannot diagnose or give medical advice. I am an herbalist, midwifery student, massage therapist, and a prepper. I see the potential for emergencies where people are cut off from modern facilities and help is just not coming. I see the potential for scenarios where pharmacies may have nothing but empty shelves.

 

It is my belief that herbalists can fill in some of the gaps in the absence of modern medicine, whether that be from an EMP, a natural disaster that leaves communities stranded for extended periods, an economic collapse causing an interruption in supply, or any other obstacle that puts modern medicine out of a person’s reach.”
