ows The Great Killers During an Economic Collapse

Zimbabwe, Iceland, Greece — are we next?

These days, you have to be living under a rock to not notice the economic unrest right in our own backyard.  The Occupy Wall Street protests in New York’s Zuccotti Park have spread throughout the nation as disgruntled citizens of all political persuasions express their discontent with economic policies that have fleeced America’s middle class.

A growing number of economic experts are warning us that not only are we in a recession, but that the economic forecast isn’t so bright.  This is no news for those of us who have repudiated mainstream media and turned to alternative news sources and have known that for decades, world monetary bodies and mega-corporations have purposely collapsed the economies of third world countries around the world (see “Life and Debt” — the story of Jamaica’s economic decline by design, which is available on Netflix; and comments by John Perkins, a reformed economic hitman).  Now the “powers that be” are sinking their teeth into America and Western society (see “The Fall of the Republic” — a documentary that exposes many of the dangers America faces today)/

Natural disasters are localized events, wreaking havoc on a relatively small parts of the world at any given time.  As devastating as some natural disasters have been, including the Asian tsunami of 2005, Hurricane Katrina, and the more recent earthquake in Haiti, a more serious scenario to consider when preparing yourself and your families for emergency is the possibility of a global economic collapse.

Failed economies in such nations as Iceland, Greece, and Zimbabwe serve as a wake up call to the rest of us.  John Lipscomb of has compiled a list of the Top 10 Biggest Threats to Survival in World Economic Collapse.

Here are the threats, and some hard-hitting solutions to counteract them:

1.      No access to prescription medication.

The temporary unavailability of medications during natural disasters has caused death and suffering for tens of thousands.  Mortality rates in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, for instance, went up by 50% and experts agree that this is at least partially due to people running out of their medications and being unable to get more because of the disaster.

In the event of a global economic meltdown, prescription drugs could be unavailable to most of the world’s population — even right here in America — leading to potentially millions of needless deaths.  This is not necessarily because all of these people could not survive without drugs, but because they didn’t know of or have any alternative to their drug, or they knew of alternatives but neglected to take precautions.

Our Solutions – Essential oils have worked for me!  Unfortunely, I am no longer able to talk about this.

2.      Poor water.

Humans can survive without water for about 3 days.  Natural disasters notoriously cut populations off from safe water supplies.  But a long-term economic meltdown could lead to poverty and the collapse of public water infrastructures.

Our Solutions – For short-term disasters, every household should store an emergency water supply.  At least 3 gallons of water per person (preferably much more) should be stored in food-grade containers (such as plastic bottles or special water storage containers).  Rotate water yearly.

Long-term solutions for ensuring access to safe water supplies may be somewhat trickier.  At the very least, individuals and families ought to have a way to purify water.  Therapeutic-grade oregano oil has been used successfully by some to kill dangerous water-borne microorganisms such as Giardia and E. coli, but this has not been tested in a lab.  Bleach may also be used, but is not my personal preference. The Berkey water filter has a good reputation as an effective water filtration system.

You must at least have water storage and a way to purify water.

3.      Lack of food.

What will you do when the only food available is at government-run relief stations?  If you don’t have your own food supply, you don’t have your freedom.

Our Solutions — You must store food staples, including grains, dried beans, cooking oils, salt, and sugar.   A storage of prepared meals will help alleviate strain.  I like eFoods Global/GoFoods Globalas they have the highest-quality prepared meals on the market (non-GMO, no trans fats).  Mike Adams from has some good organic choices for food storage.

A selection of non-hybrid seeds will allow you to grow your own produce to provide greater nourishment and variety.  I like Survivalist seeds.

4.      Disease.

Poor sanitary conditions and lack of medical care during a collapse can lead to the rampant transmission of disease.  For instance, a cholera epidemic in Haiti that broke out in the chaos of the aftermath of the earthquake has killed 6,435 as of September 2011.

Our Solutions — Certain essential oils can help ramp up the body’s immune system.  So can Vitamin D serum.

5.      Despair.

Over the long-term, the emotional toll of disaster and collapse can threaten your life.  During times of disaster, economic instability, and political unrest, stress levels skyrocket.  Children, the sick, and the elderly are particularly susceptible to severe stress reactions.

Our Solutions – Be empowered to handle serious emotional upheaval and stress with essential oils like Valor and Peace & Calming, both of which are in the Premium Starter Kit for wholesale members.   Essential oils are proven to penetrate into the brain and instantly calm the body’s stress reactions.

6.      Desperate neighbors and gangs.

Violence and crime levels go up when society is in upheaval.

Solutions – Whether you have a gun and know how to use it, or are proficient in some form of self-defense, you will want to plan ahead and find  a way to protect yourself and your family.

7.      Accidents – ex. broken arm.

Under normal circumstances, fractures, concussions, and other types of injuries caused by accidents are usually easily addressed with proper medical care.  During economic and societal meltdown, such injuries can be life-threatening.

Our Solutions — If you are unable to get immediate medical help in the event of an accident whether due to disaster or otherwise, you will want to have a first aid kit and know how to use it.  Herbs and essential oils can also aid the body in dealing with injury.

8.      Government covert operations – EMP, CHEMTRAILS.

Our Solutions — I can’t help you with the EMP, but read here to learn how I detoxified from chemtrails earlier this year.   Chemtrail Detox capsules is just one thing I used to get those nasty toxins out of my system.

9.      Government troops.

Get armed if you aren’t already.  Be mindful and prayerful in developing a plan to keep you and your family safe.

10.  Invasion or attack by foreign nation.

Nuclear or bio-warfare are two potential threats if America is ever attacked.

Our Solutions –  Thieves and the Vitamin D serum are the most powerful solutions I am aware of to boost the body’s immune system — even in the face of novel pathogens.  Melrose essential oil, along with potassium iodide, should be kept on hand because it may help the body detoxify from radiation.

Great article! Just a quick tip about the EMP. I found several ideas of DIY Faraday boxes in the internet, you just need to google it. It is supposed to guard your electronics in case some pinhead pulls up the oh so dreaded EMP. You can get instructions on very basic Faraday boxes, which can be made from cheap and readily available materials at the local hardware stores. You can try building a small box for basics like walkie talkies, a handheld digital ham radio to your cell phone, batteries and even crank radios or lamps since they use a special type of battery that can also be affected by an EMP. Hey, i’m a girly girl BUT that is no excuse not to at least try building one, it is really easy. You can even test it: first, make your Faraday box, then put your cell phone in it. Then from another phone place a call to your cell phone. If it doesn’t ring, you’ve got yourself a functional Faraday box that is able to block RFID waves. Heck, if you have the right type of microwave, then you don’t have to make a Faraday box, just use the oven. Perform the same test: put your cell phone in the microwave, close the oven’s door and make sure it is unplugged. Then place a call to your cell, if it doesn’t ring, stick your handheld electronic devices in your microwave oven, just make sure it is not plugged to the outlet.
