The world has changed. Previously, anyone was able to enter the hospital or a doctor’s office anytime that they pleased without any issues whatsoever. If you were sick, you could expect to be given medical care. It never mattered your skin color, creed, religion, political beliefs, or any of that.
Those working in the field of healthcare never had an issue with helping to heal those in need. They were never banned from doing so.
But now, things are different.
Now, we have children with cancer who are being kicked out of hospitals because they don’t have the Jabberwockies.
Now, we have patients being taken off of organ transplant lists because they refuse to be coerced into medical decisions.
Now, we have doctors who lose their licenses – or even face criminal penalties – for treating their patients with medicines that are not politically in vogue (all while politicians receive treatment with these banned medicines).
Now, receptionists are more than happy to refuse you entry to the facility they work at unless you have hidden your face or have the appropriate paperwork.
Now, there is open discussion about kidnapping the children of those who have refused to take the Jabberwockies and placing them in “homes” where they’ll be “properly” taken care of. Keep in mind the large number of state-run trafficking rings that have been exposed of late.
America has changed, and not for the better. The healthcare system is deteriorating fast.
This is the world that we live in now.
That’s why it is more important now than it has ever been before to take care of your own health. Because the fact of the matter is that hospitals may refuse to treat your children. The notion of the emergency room barring your child suffering from an asthma attack entry is very real. You being barred to get your broken finger treated at the walk-in clinic is a real threat.
This is the extent to which propaganda has changed America.
In addition, the lovers of freedom have left their professions in the healthcare system.
Healthcare workers have left the field of medicine in droves as hospitals across the country have instituted mask and jab mandates. The staffing shortage has gotten so severe that now, many hospitals have been forced to completely close down certain units. The rates hospitals are now willing to pay nurses has absolutely skyrocketed as well, as they attempt to retain workers who are leaving in record numbers and attract new help to fill their place.
Supply chain shortages have affected the healthcare system as well. It’s not just the staff that’s missing – it’s the product. Imagine a world where syringes, scalpels, medicines, surgical equipment, and more is in short supply. One source who works in a hospital in a large city in South Carolina said they were down to just two kinds of needles and supplies were dwindling fast. He shared that new orders were not being filled quickly, if at all. In many ways, we’re already there, but things are only escalating.
Consider what collectivism does to the healthcare system.
“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
Did that (or anything else from that man’s mouth) prove to be true?
Perhaps we can look at what collectivism did to the Swedish healthcare system, where patients are denied the ability to purchase medications with their own money, because it would be “unfair.” Perhaps we can look at Venezuela, where the wait time to be treated for a potentially fatal condition can be months.

Longer wait times are coming to America – the land of the free – as well. People in certain parts of the country are already experiencing this as a result of mandates and staffing shortages.
And as mentioned before, this makes it more important now than ever to take care of your and your family’s health.
How can we be prepared for this?
While I wholeheartedly agree that to be passive is to remain on the defensive, and I also agree that herbal medicine is not a panacea, I can’t help but wonder if getting as many Americans as possible to learn as much as possible about herbal medicine couldn’t end up helping massive amounts of my countrymen.
When you can’t buy Neosporin because you’re barred entry at the door of the pharmacy, are you able to create your own forms of germ-killers from what is growing around you? Can herbal remedies save you money on common OTC medications? Can plants such as elderberry keep you healthy?
This is why we want to help you become more self-reliant with your health.
That’s why The Organic Prepper is excited to announce the release of Cat Ellis’ e-course, Herbal Skills Intensive. In this 8-week course, you’ll learn what you need to know about how herbs have been used throughout history, what herbs are beneficial to grow, how to prepare them, as well as other pertinent advice as well.
Cat was the owner of Herbal Prepper before it closed its doors this past year. When The Organic Prepper discovered what was happening, we quickly reached out to her to see about keeping her awesome products available when we need them the most.
She’s the author of the 2015 book Prepping for a Pandemic, in which she laid out how a herbalist would respond to a global pandemic, even looking at the potential for a global coronavirus pandemic. She’s also the author of The Wuhan Coronavirus Survival Manual, which was banned by Amazon without explanation in 2020.
Prepping for a Pandemic is still available for sale on Amazon, but if you’re looking to purchase The Wuhan Coronavirus Survival Manual, unfortunately it’s now out of print completely.
Her Herbal Skills Intensive is currently running a sale. What is normally a $199 course is going to be released here at The Organic Prepper for an early-bird sale of $99. If you’re interested in learning more about the world of herbal medicine, this is a great place to start!
