We’re so advanced in technology and medicine nowadays that many preppers don’t even consider using Native American healing remedies anymore.
And why would we? I mean, with 2017’s advancements in health and medical information, we can simply get the medicinal pills and tablets we need forever, right?
The fact is in a SHTF situation you’re going to have limited (if not zero) access to doctors and pharmacies. Which means that, in large part, you’re going to run out of pills and will most likely have to look to nature’s remedies to help with your ailments.
Luckily, there’s a surprising amount of Native American healing remedies that lots of people have forgotten about. And these remedies could seriously save your life in a crisis.
I want you to be as prepared as possible for what’s up ahead. That’s why I want to teach you about these…
