Survivalist Tip: Dealing with allergies this spring wreaked havoc on my immune system. This happens every year, but it seems to be worse this time around. Of course, I know why – it’s a precursor to the coming apocalypse. With that I feel it’s important we all should add Echinacea to our medicinal supply. Echinacea has become the most popular herb in American today. But, unlike other herbs such as tofu and pita bread, Echinacea is truly American-made. Indigenous Americans have used it for thousands of years. Unfortunately, it didn’t help fight off the variety of ailments Europeans brought, such as small pox, typhoid and jock itch. But, it did ward off bad attitudes. How else do you think the Indians have survived the past 500 years?
Previously, Echinacea had been considered a treatment for scarlet fever, syphilis, malaria, blood poisoning and diphtheria. But, it doesn’t combat any of those things. It’s strictly for defense of airborne pathogens, although Muslims in airplanes are not among them. But, science has proven that Echinacea does work to reduce the effects of colds, coughs and sore throats. It possesses a variety of natural chemicals: polysaccharides, glycoproteins and alkamides. It also provides a defense for the immune system against future colds and allergens. Echinacea now comes in a variety of forms: pill, liquid and dried powder for tea. Any of these are effective, as long as it’s pure Echinacea. If you happen to be outdoors – perhaps trying to flee to safety – you can identify Echinacea by the distinctive lavender or light purple color of the flower.
Regardless of how you consume it, it’s best to start loading up on Echinacea long before December 21. That way you can laugh at all the bad attitudes that surround you.
