We underestimate the importance of natural self-care, and we've forgotten about the beautiful healing tools God has provided for us, since the beginning of the earth.
Christ himself was given, as a most precious gift, Frankincense & Myrrh. Two of the most healing plants available. He was also given gold. This gold could have been for monetary purposes, but did you know that pure gold can actually be used for healing the body?

As of 2011... 1 out of 4 CHILDREN in the U.S. are taking prescription drugs regularly.
Over 75% of all doctor, & hospital visits involve giving a drug.
In the United States - spending for prescription drugs was $234.1 billion which doubled in just 9 years! (From 1999 to 2008!)

Don't you think it's probably time, to learn how to take care of your & your family's health?
PREPAREDNESS ISN'T JUST ABOUT STORING FOOD & KNOWING HOW TO COOK IN AN EMERGENCY. IT'S ALSO ABOUT KNOWING WHAT TO DO IN A MEDICAL / HEALTH SITUATION. HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR OWN HEALTH WITHOUT *HAVING* TO RELY ON DRUGS & DOCTORS. IT'S ALSO ABOUT DIS-EASE PREVENTION, WHICH IS THE BEST TYPE OF PREPAREDNESS THERE IS.
"If a variety from all food groups is eaten regularly, it is not usually necessary to take supplements. Even carefully chosen vegetarian diets that include dairy & eggs can be quite sufficient."
If we are eating properly, as described in various religious & scriptural health codes, there will be very little, if any, need for supplements. All of our nutrients should come from whole, unprocessed/unrefined foods, & organic when possible.
NOTE: Herbs are not supplements. They are plant food.
Supplements are a modern invention & have not been around forever. The word "supplement" means partial, not whole, or added for completion... Whole foods are ALREADY complete. Generations before us didn't have need for supplements. Neither should we, in most cases.
The majority of supplements on the market today are synthetic. They also contain other harmful ingredients... In 2012, I attended a conference & listened to a woman who used to work in a supplement factory. She stated that she will NEVER purchase commercial supplements in her life, because she knows from experience, that they are not produced in pure environments, & they are made with very inferior, synthetic ingredients. She warned us all to stay away from them!
IF you use supplements or commercial vitamins, please make sure that they're a 'whole food' version with real ingredients (not synthetic)... and if possible, dried at low temperature to preserve the nutrients, which means raw.
Remember, herbs & dried foods are generally different than supplemental "vitamins & minerals." But even with herbs & dried foods, please be careful if they're commercially produced. It's safer, healthier, & cheaper to buy your own in bulk, & tincture or encapsulate them yourself.
