    Most people think to store long term food and water along with first aid supplies, but what about medicine?

These herbal remedies have aided humans for thousands of years, and are a great way to care for your health in an emergency.

    SURVIVAL'S WORST ENEMIES: TOP 7 THREATS TO YOUR PSYCHE

    SURVIVAL'S WORST ENEMIES: TOP 7 THREATS TO YOUR PSYCHE

    In any sort of disaster crisis, your survival depends on a few major factors that help fuel your body's ability to pull through a rough situation. To secure your survival, make sure you address all of these threats in your emergency plan to keep your enemies at bay.

    1. Panic: This intense emotion is driven by anxiety and fear, and can blur your focus and performance in a crisis. It is important to remain calm and act wisely, stick to the plan and do not allow your emotions to get the best of you. Falling a part in the midst of a disaster will compromise your ability to survive.
    2. Temperature: If you are excessively hot or cold in a crisis, you will become fatigued and agitated. Extremely low or high temperatures can be life-threatening, which is why it is important to keep an alternate heating and cooling source. A generator can run a small space heater or fan without electricity.
    3. Thirst: We cannot survive very long without water, it is the most needed resource in our survival. Be sure to store water year-round, and rotate as needed. Keep enough to last your family at least a week, preferably much longer.
    4. Sleep Deprivation: Without sleep, parts of the body begin to shut down, starting with the brain. We cannot function without sleep, our ability to think and rationalize will quickly vanish, and our chance of survival dwindles.
    5. Injury: With limited resources in the midst of a disaster, especially if you are hunkered down, a small injury can quickly become fatal. The best way to secure your safety is to stay inside, away from potential hazards, and keep a well-stocked first aid kit.
    6. Boredom: In addition to your physical needs, like food and water, your mental and emotional needs are also vital to nurture in a crisis. Keep some games and books in your emergency supply to help stimulate your mind while waiting out the storm. This will also help to keep everyone calm and distracted from worry.
    7. Hunger: Hunger sets in quickly, and will soon affect all areas of your well-being: mental, physical and emotional. Without food you will not survive very long. Store a long-term supply of food that is easy to prepare and store. We recommend at least 3 months worth to start.

    It is important to remember all of these threats when preparing for disasters. Without proper preparation and planning, a crisis can be fatal. Avoid your enemies and secure your survival with your own long-term supply now.

    Why Everyone Should Have a 72 Hour Survival Kit

    Why Everyone Should Have a 72 Hour Survival Kit

    Disaster can strike anytime and without warning. You need to be ready all the time. The first 72 hours after any disaster is dangerous as fuel and water may be scarce or power and communication lines may be severely damaged or the usual conveniences of modern living may not working. It is also during this time that public and safety rescue search teams may not be able to reach you. For your safety and also that of your family, you need to have a 72-hour survival kit. The first three days of any disaster is critical, which is why you need to be self-reliant to save yourself and your family. But keep in mind that a 72-hour emergency kit is not only useful during natural or man-made disasters but also during personal family crisis such as illness in the family, disability, or unemployment by the head of the family. A well-packed 72-hour survival kit can be a blessing while you wait for the next step to take.

    The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has come up with guidelines that you can follow to help you and your family prepare. The CDC suggests that you pack an emergency supply kit to keep you safer and healthier during and after a disaster. A 72-hour emergency kit can be easily prepared but preparing your 72-hour survival kit is particularly crucial to your survival; there is a likelihood that you might fail to pack the essentials or you might miss an important item that is essential for your survival.

    THE FIRST 10 THINGS TO GO IN AN EMERGENCY: WHAT YOU WON'T FIND ON THE SHELVES

    THE FIRST 10 THINGS TO GO IN AN EMERGENCY: WHAT YOU WON'T FIND ON THE SHELVES

    In the midst of any sort of disaster, natural or man-made,  there are certain items you'll need that will be gone off the shelf in the blink of an eye. To prepare efficiently, store these items beforehand to prevent being left with nothing. We always recommend keeping a large supply of emergency provisions, such as food, water and survival supplies. This is the best way of safe guarding your future and ability to survive anything.

    First 10 Things to Go in an Emergency:

    1. Generators- We depend on power for just about everything, and sustaining it is typically the first priority of most people. Keeping your fridge or a space heater running can mean the difference between basic and a more comfortable survival.
    2. Water and Water Filters or purifiers- Water is a must-have. If the pipes freeze over you'll need an alternate source, and if the water is not good to drink you will need a way to purify it. Having a filter is more efficient than boiling water; save as much heat as you can for cooking and warmth.
    3. Portable Toilets- In case plumbing goes down you'll need one, and these typically are off the shelves fast in an emergency. It's a basic, but it's a very important one.
    4. Firewood- Especially in a power outage, firewood is extremely important to stay warm. Alternate heat is vital in the colder months, and even in warmer weather it is important to have for cooking. Make sure your firewood is safe for indoors.
    5. Lamp oil, lamps and wicks- Without power there is no other source of light, which is why oil lamps are another quickly oversold item, a safer and longer lasting alternative to candles.
    6. Emergency Stove fuel- Store a lot of fuel for your emergency fire, we use more heat than we realize, the more you have the better.
    7. Protection: knives, pepper spray, clubs, ammunition and guns- In an emergency we can become very vulnerable, lacking household security systems and electricity. Make sure you have everything you need to protect yourself before disaster strikes to keep your family safe.
    8. Can openers and egg beaters- These items are important in order to eat your perishable supply before it goes bad, make sure they are a part of your emergency supply.
    9. Sugar, honey and syrup- The sweet tooth prevails and these food items are often the first to go. Stock up and rotate as needed.
    10. Grains, beans and rice- Those who do not have a long-term emergency food supply go for these items first. However, these components are difficult to prepare and can spoil quickly. Avoid expensive rotation and empty shelves by investing in our 25 year shelf life meals that simply require water. You'll be glad you did.

    When putting together your emergency supply, keep all of these things in mind so that you're not left empty handed in a crisis. Our long-term food lasts you 25 years and is easy to store and transport in an emergency. It's high quality food with a great taste, prepared by adding water. It's an investment worth making and easy to do on My Food Storage. Our priority is your protection.
