Prepper’s Natural Medicine Will Take You Through Cold and Flu Season – and Beyond

It’s that time of year. If you haven’t caught a cold or the flu, there’s a good chance you will sometime in the next few months. How would you like to get back to health with natural medicine?

Prepper’s Natural Medicine will take you through the cold and flue season, and beyond. Cat Ellis, the book’s author, paid a return visit to DestinySurvival Radio this week. Colds and flu aren’t the only thing we discussed, but we touched on a few of the natural remedies you ought to know about.

When Cat was my guest a couple months ago, I knew I’d have her back because she’s so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about natural medicine. She makes my job easy as an interviewer. When I ask a question, she gives a thorough answer and brings up answers to other questions and issues listeners likely have. She knows her stuff, and I’m glad I can share her book with you.

Since you can see info about Cat and my review of Prepper’s Natural Medicine in the post I wrote about our first vbisit here, this post won’t be so lengthy. I’ll focus on this week’s DestinySurvival Radio conversation.


Prepper's Natural Medicine


Get the Basics of the Conversation

Cat says her book is doing well, which is a good indicator of how interested people are in taking more control over their personal health. She hopes that will continue because she wants you and me to delve into natural medicine for ourselves.

You’ll find a lot of helpful knowledge packed into Cat’s book. It’s not just theory either. She has practical, real world experience. If you’re new to natural medicine, or you are looking to increase your own knowledge, you’ll welcome the book’s indices which guide you to the answers you’re looking for.

Briefly, here’s a bare bones overview of what we discussed on this week’s DestinySurvival Radio.

  • The term “natural medicine” encompasses more than “herbal medicine.”
  • No matter how self sufficient you want to be, you won’t be able to grow everything you need for herbal remedies and essential oils; but you’ll be able to do more than you might think.
  • Stock up on essential oils, and learn how to be wise about their use.
  • You can make your own cold and flu remedies to fit the needs of you or your children.
  • Prevent or diminish the impact of colds and flu by strengthening your immune system, practicing cleanliness, eating properly, and getting needed rest.
We also talked about some ways you and I can find a credible herbalist. One good starting place is the American Herbalists Guild. Cat is a member herself.


Get to the Heart of It

I really hope you’ll take the time–a little less than an hour–to hear my conversation with Cat Ellis. Listen to DestinySurvival Radio for November 5, 2015. (Right click to download.) Get your copy of Prepper’s Natural Medicine by clicking on its title wherever you see it in this post.

By the way, Cat has a second book coming out on December 1st called Prepping for a Pandemic. From her description of it, you’ll want that one, too. I know I do.

One more thing. On November 10th Cat is conducting a Webinar on herbal medicines for the cold and flu. If you’re reading this after that date, and you’ve miss the live event, you can download the content from her site. Details are at She has also started offering a series of PDF reports on herbal and natural medicine.

Cat is a trustworthy source of knowledge because she’s not only sharing what she knows about natural medicine, but she’s looking at the world through the lense of preparedness and survival. And that’s a great combination.
