Luckily, we all have the ability to become our own doctor, as plant medicine is all around us. But it takes more than a reference book or cursory knowledge of herbal medicine to be prepared to use it. To be really prepared to cure yourself when TEOTWAWKI strikes, you must start now, just as you have with your other preps.
Before we embark on the path to natural healing, let me offer this disclaimer. I am not a doctor...at least, not in the sense that most people use the word. Rather, I am a self-reliant homesteader. I grow my own meat, vegetables fruits and medicinal herbs. Like many of you (hopefully), I make my own soaps/lotions/shampoos and have long sworn off chemicals and fancy pharmaceutical products.
