"If we aren't being taught how to grow our own food, how to take care of ourselves and our families, and how to live without the need for huge governments, banks, or corporations then we aren't being educated; we are being indoctrinated to be dependent and subservient to the system." - Gavin Nascimento
As more and more of our food is manufactured, chemically treated, nutrition free chunks of who knows what, there are some natural products that have been around forever.
They were never referred to as health food, or medicine, but were used extensively to treat nearly everything from bad breath to cancer. And you didn't need a prescription. And a month's supply might cost a buck or two. Many still do.
So while the pharmaceutical industry, the insurance companies, and our politicians find ways to drain our pocketbooks (anybody use a pocketbook any more?) and invent diseases just to develop a new drug, maybe it's time to revisit and reeducate ourselves on some of these products and bypass the middleman completely. Here are a few to get you started.
