In times of uncertainty, it may be time to reflect on what would happen if civil unrest erupted and service distribution was disrupted or halted. Would you feel comfortable with limited to no supply of food or water in stores, or having no access to hospitals or medical professionals for weeks? What if the power grid failed and you had no way to cook food, and any food you did have was spoiling and going to waste? This is not a scenario many have had to deal with, but it does happen, and could happen given the current political climate and social strife bubbling these days.
In a case like this, you can’t be too prepared. If SHTF, it will be too late to consider your options. This is why you need a self-created insurance policy to make sure you’re covered in such an event, and these four things will be essential.
It never hurts to have extra food kicking around the house, especially big cans of freeze-dried food that can stay fresh for long periods of time. Even better, when it is organic, nutritious, and filling, it can meet your needs on any level when in an emergency situation. This type of food won’t require power to keep fresh, is easily transportable when stored in big cans, and will ensure you always have something to eat if all hell breaks loose.
Some great storable organics include lentils, quinoa, peas, corn, chia, miso, goji berries, and blueberries. All are highly nutritious and will help satisfy your hunger for longer periods of time, so you can ride out any disaster or disruption to food related services.
If there is one critical skill that will help you be largely independent of the food industry, it’s learning how to grow your own food. This is not only a survival skill, but a life skill that will serve you and your family’s health extremely well.
The cool part of learning how to garden is that there are so many convenient ways to grow your own food now, without needing a huge plot of land. You can use garden towers, grow boxes, and even buckets to grow all kinds of food. This is not only important to get the most nutritious foods you can get your hands on, but if there is an emergency situation of any kind, you can rest knowing you are growing your own food and can preserve a lot of it in case you need an indefinite supply or if the food distribution network meets any hiccups.
Getting seeds for fruit, vegetables, and medicinal herbs is your first step, then some quality fertilizer and a growing medium. You can grow outside if possible, but if not, go for a system that can be indoors or self contained on a deck. You’ll NEVER regret the ability to grow your own fresh and organic food, especially in an emergency situation.
Unfortunately, we have become all too dependent on medical professionals to handle even the most solvable health concerns, and that is seriously risky if any natural disaster or civil unrest breaks out. The conventional medical system is already bogged down with unnecessary visits and semi-permanent residents, and any significant influx could leave them completely incapacitated.
This is why being able to solve the most basic health concerns at home is critical. You don’t want to be in a scenario where someone is sick, you can’t get assistance for days or even weeks from medical professionals, and you don’t have any recourse due to lack of resources.
First of all, a basic medical kit is strongly encouraged. One with gauze pads, adhesive tape, bandages, bandaids, scissors, tweezers, safety pins, latex gloves, antiseptic wipes, blanket, thermometer, and instant ice packs.
Secondly, having some of nature’s medicine bottled up so it can be used in a variety of situations is very important. In this case, it’s tough to beat essential oils. They can be used to reduce your stress (so you can stay calm and clear headed), improve sleep, promote wound healing, prevent bacterial or viral infections, or freshen the indoor air. Use lavender for stress and sleep, tea tree for wound healing, oregano for bacterial and vial infections, and eucalyptus or cinnamon for cleansing your indoor environment.
Lastly, make and store a big tincture bottle of the Antibiotic Tonic. This powerful concoction has incredible versatility and can darn near kill anything it comes in contact with. Once you’ve seen how well it works, you’ll never go without it.
Finally, if stuff really hits the fan, having a wide variety of survival tools is paramount. The nice part about having these around is not only do you have the basics for a real survival situation, but you’ll also have some really neat camping gear.
To stay functional and self-reliant, and have gear that can be easily transported on foot, you’ll need some multi-functional tools that are highly portable. Items like a hammer, knife, saw, cordage, whistles, magnesium rod ignition, flint, screwdriver, tourniquet, wire cutters, wrenches, watch, compass and can openers are just a few of the most handy and practical items to have in your survival gear kit. An outdoor camping stove, kettle, and some basic utensils are also important.
So if you are a survivalist, or simply like to camp, this type of survival gear will make sure you are adequately outfitted. Get geared up with the essentials for up to 54% off here, by shopping part 3 of the Health Ranger’s Black Friday Sale here, which ends November 24th at 12:00 pm CST.
With the political climate the way it is now, it pays to be prepared. Don’t think your “leaders” will be looking out for you in an emergency situation, as they will be too busy saving themselves and their friends (including other politicians) and family. Making sure you have your storable food, gardening supplies, survival gear (multifunctional tools), essentials oils, and even your iodine is incredibly important. Getting yourself prepared just became that much easier and cheaper, with part 3 of the Health Ranger’s Black Friday Sale, which ends November 24th at 12:00 pm CST.
Be independent. Be safe. Be resilient.
