If you are looking for a good resource on natural medicine from a preparedness prespective, then Prepper’s Natural Medicine is just the book you need. The author, Cat Ellis, is a practicing herbalist, teacher and a member of the American Herbalists Guild. Cat is also a dedicated prepper who hosts the “Herbal Prepper Live” internet radio show and has a website called The Herbal Prepper.
There is a tremendous amount of information packed into this 234 page book. It is written in a concise, easy to understand manner. Whether you are new to herbal medicine or have some experience with it, there is valuable information to be gleaned. If you are completely inexperienced, this book will walk you through the basics and teach you how to become a proficient user of herbal medicine. The book can be used as a stand alone manual and is small enough to easily store in a backpack, first aid kit, or even a large coat pocket. I was very impressed with the detail and completeness of such a relatively small book. Cat Ellis is a gifted teacher and her explanations are easy to understand, while at the same time being complete and useful. In the genre of SHTF herbal medicine, these qualities are as rare as hen’s teeth!
