My father has been serious about survival and self-reliance for years. He’s trained in the military and is passionate about protecting his family and his land from any form of invasion: nuclear fall-out, religious jihad, rioting, flood or any other natural disaster. Recently, he and my mother have canned garden vegetables and made various sorts of fruit preserves, juices and jams – all for the sake of having a stock pile to pull from in time of emergency.

We are ALL endowed with a sense of self-preservation. If a truck is coming at you, don’t you jump out of the way?! Much like a flight or fight (or even freeze) response, there are varying degrees of self-preservation in all of us.

  • A lot of people will tell you that it is their love of family.
  • Others believe there is a divine order to who lives and who dies.
  • Some are just plain scared of disaster claiming a precious life before “their time.”
  • Even for others, the instinct is dormant.

For my father, he fits into the category that is on “constant alert.” He is like a gazelle hanging around a watering hole, ears up, eyes scanning the horizon for impending doom or danger.


Because, somewhere out there is a lion waiting for dinner. It might not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But, it might be in 5 minutes! Whenever the time comes – and it will – are you ready for the emergency?

You don’t have to be in the service, hardened by circumstances, to know the realities of survival. You don’t have to be a fictional “Rambo” or “MacGyver” to be well prepared and survive any kind of jam you find yourself in.

The next issue of Home Cures That Work on Survival will provide you with the appropriate motivation, explanation, knowledge and skills required to avoid self-destruction and danger in case of emergency. We’ve read about primitive cultures, non-electric inventions, early homesteading efforts and natural folklore medicine to help you prepare as best as you can.

Survive Any Catastrophic Event <<—–Be prepared for the long haul

So, when the time comes, you can hope in your ingenuity, knowledge and ability to think-on-your-feet to get out of the specific emergency you end up in. We all know life-and-death situations aren’t limited to Everest mountaineers, or even to people hiking in the wilderness. They can surprise us in the workplace, at home, and with regard to personal health. No matter the circumstance, such events will require valuable insights.

In our October issue on Survival, we report on the psychology of survival and how your day-to-day decisions can affect your capacity to endure the unexpected. YOU must find a way to deal with that when it happens.
