[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0MzkyNTY2XzU1QzRBNzE=] Medicinal uses for garlic People don't know much about medicine nowadays. They rely upon trained personnel, and that's fine as long as civilliation exists in an organized manner. Tribal people had to be generalists because the distance to a large urban area might be extremely far away, and by the time someone might be able to seek medical treatment, it would be too late. It also might be too expensive. Post-collapse, we'll have very few medicines available. This means that we need to understand a handful for basic needs. Over time more and more knowledge can be accumulated, but most people will resist learning with a passion. They don't want to bother learning, so as effective shaman-in-training, we want to understand this human dynamic, and then wait (or better create) teachable moments in which to impart that knowledge. I've previously talked about many many herbs that can be foraged or grown. Had I written a long missive detailing all of them at once, less than 1% of you would have bothered to read it. Isn't that correct? Take this to heart, because you'll be using the same technique to teach and pass it along in your own style. Garlic is an extraordinary healing plant. Most people have a theoretical knowledge that it helps reduce blood pressure due to lessening fatty deposits of inflammation in the arteries (athereosclerosis). When you say a word like that, most people get a vague bored look, and you immediately lose their interest. That said, over their lifetime 100% of Americans and those on Western diets in which animal saturated fats will be consumed will have some amount of this disease. Isn't that a conundrum? Even young children on a Western diet will show traces of the inflammation. It doesn't matter much until the body wears down or is in a depressed state with lowered immune response. Besides that property, garlic is an extraordinary wound healer. In the absence of antibiotics, it will be the primary means of eliminating infections. It kills many bacterial infectins, many fungal infections, and helps with parasites too. http://www.backwoodshome.com/articles2/alton134.html http://www.yourmedicinalplants.com/garlic/ Take it raw, as cooking destroys the chemical compound which is believed to be the chief one that gives it healing power. I believe, and I don't have evidence of this, but most healing plants have synergistic ways of healing by many phytocompounds within them. I believe that the Source placed these healing compounds in the plants as a gift. We think that one is the active ingredient, but I believe that it all works together for healing. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
