I'm doctor John Herzog and this question used to keep me up at night. So much so that few years ago I started on a journey to create something that had never been done before:
A comprehensive doctor's book of survival home remedies filled with scientifically proven ways to keep us strong and healthy in difficult times.
John Herzog Md,Board Certified Surgeon
This information is very important now in this time of uncertainty, when the healthcare system can be at any moment stressed to its limit.
I gravitated to this profession, walking in the footsteps of my grandfather, father, and uncle.
But Dad influenced me the most. He was kind of a cross between James Bond and a cowboy.
A medical pioneer, who performed the first total hip and total knee replacement in the state of Michigan.
George Henry Herzog, my grandfather
But if there's one thing I've learned, after three decades in medicine, it's that caring for folk isn't easy.
Putting new joints in hips has a very distinct protocol. Putting a kid's foot back together after a lawn mower accident takes the art of medicine.
Mom and Dad, The Cowboy Doctor
Then you've got to understand not only the physical problems, but the psychological issues in dealing with grief, guilt, and ongoing medical problems.
I was good at it. But I had doubts...
You see, many of the treatments I'd recommend cost waaaay too much, they weren't always effective, with catastrophic side effects, and could even put patients at risk.
Me, as a younger man
But I soldiered on. I trusted my training. How could I not?
Something I understand firsthand.
My first encounter came, in fact, when I collided with - of all things - a moose. At Moosehead Lake in Maine - I kid you not!
At 50 years of age, I sustained a head injury in the collision. I bet you're wondering what happened to the moose!
I can't tell you, but I suspect he was better off than me, as he likely recovered in the forest. With a healthy diet.
Me on the other hand, I was in a critical state.
Only a week after the collision I attempted to go back to work. But fate had other plans for me.
Because on my way to surgery my world turned upside down.
I had a major seizure and ended up a patient instead of a doctor.
Instead of saving a patient's life I needed to be saved!
Because it was then that my doubts about my profession came to rest.
After I was:
Leading to high cholesterol, and painful arthritis. Chronic ailments our health system neglects.
In short, I'd become my own victim. Despite my best intentions.
I was devastated.
What would gramps and my father have thought?
Our hippocratic oath said, "do no harm", but was I so innocent?
You see, their approach had been remarkably different.
Focused on prevention, and helping the body do what it was designed to do - heal itself-with as few drugs as possible.
They were true doctors. Focused on what helped. Using old-school, traditional remedies and new. Without prejudice.
Only, back then, not everyone was as prudent as they were.
I'm sure you've heard of them...
Folk remedies that claim to do X but end up causing you harm.
Like putting butter on a burn, which feels soothing, but is also an infection's paradise.
(Think about it, our skin is there to protect against bacteria, whereas a burn removes this dermal layer, leaving you exposed).
Enough for most to assume many traditional remedies are junk.
Throwing the baby out with the bath water.
As would I. If it wasn't for...
...on natural remedies, I read at the time, and absorbed like a dry sponge.
Like a starving man at a thanksgiving buffet.
Including studies from prestigious medical institutions like John Hopkins, Harvard, and the New England Journal of Medicine123.
Studies which (unlike our less diligent forefathers) successfully tested these remedies for their effectiveness and risk.
This time, it was different.
I was ecstatic.
These were inexpensive, low-risk solutions, with fewer side-effects that could avoid the hospital outright and attack medical problems at their source.
That's why, soon after, I launched my own study with medical students and moved to a home -remedy based lifestyle.
These studies radically changed my diet, my way of treating myself and my patients.In fact, it changed my whole life.
I learned from experience for example how the best diet converts to the best fuel for the human body and mind...
Not only is diet extremely important, but it may be the most under-utilized portion of medicine today.
I truly believe if we all moved to a correct diet, we would spend 80% less on our healthcare. Our diet is killing us.
With that flash of insight 10 years ago, I knew three things for certain:
I needed to:
1. Get rid of my arthritis
2. Get back in shape
3. Get off pharmaceutical medications
I realized, in short, the last thing I wanted was to spend my life dependent on our health system
So, I turned myself into a guinea pig and, simply by embracing these, alternative remedies and a healthy diet, got my cholesterol reading back to where it should be. I don't have pain in my back or knees, and I'm fully fighting fit.
I'm also happier and more energetic.
Simply because of a tiny change, I now feel like I'm in my 20s again. I wish everyone could feel this way.
That's why I developed...
This book is an all-in-one health resource with reliable scientifically-backed remedies for when help can't reach you.
This "Health Survival Encyclopedia" is 401 pages chock-full of over 100 scientifically researched natural home remedies that can keep you and your family healthy and safe, even when going outside might be the worst option.
Excerpts from The Doctor's Book of Survival Home Remedies can be read in the "DIY Remedies" section of this website or you can simply scroll down to discover bits from my book
It is the best alternative health insurance you could possibly have for when modern medicine goes out the window, and survival is on the line.
I wrote "Doctor's Book of Survival Home Remedies" as a smart, simple, and easy way for people to stay healthy and strong, and to understand all their options, while granting access to hundreds of remedies for the majority of health problems we face.
This information can help anyone before, during and after SHTF.
It's also easy to read, to understand and to apply. For experts and novices alike.
Plus, it doesn't matter where someone lives.
Whether it's the city, suburbs or out in the sticks. And it doesn't matter how prepared or underprepared someone feels about their "survival" situation.
"The Doctor's Book of Survival Home Remedies" can be a powerful ally that keeps many of us healthy for as long as possible.
These are some of the home remedies I use to stay healthy and strong when going outside is not an option.
How it works: With this smoothie in your body you will be able to fight off diseases better. That's because it's packed full of phytonutrients, fibers, and anti-inflammatory substances. Plus, it only takes 5 minutes to prepare it and it tastes delicious. Get The Doctor's Book of Survival Home Remedies to find out more.
How to grow it: Peppermint is notoriously resilient and is even classified as an invasive weed in some parts of the world. It can also be grown in most climates and is particularly hardy in the northern United States.
Which is amazing, as it may be the best thing for clogged sinuses, to sooth a headache or boost low energy levels.
Peppermint plants also spread quickly via their roots. This makes them an ideal plant to grow in a container as a houseplant. Of course, this doesn't rule out the option of adding them to your garden too.
Found in goldenseal, goldthread, philodendron, tree turmeric and European barberry, berberine can reduce blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
According to recent studies, berberine works to lessen resistance to insulin in cells, decrease sugar production in the liver, slows the rate at which the body breaks down carbohydrates and boosts beneficial bacteria in the gut
It is also thought to help reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
A review of 18 different studies found that, overall, study participants felt valerian improved their insomnia symptoms, without any side effects.
Valerian has also been shown to reduce anxiety and depression. This is most likely due to its ability to increase GABA in your brain.
Valerian's stress-busting action is also associated with improving conditions like Insomnia, High Blood Pressure, Muscle Cramps and 20 more aliments you'll find in the book.
Chamomile has been called the brightest star of the Medicinal Flowers. This easy to grow flower is thought to support the treatment of Stress, Pressure, & Anxiety.
Read in my book the science behind how it works.
To make myself a pain-relieving tea for example, I start with 50 or so Chamomile flowers. Then, I add them to 4-8 cups of water and let steep for 15 minutes. This is all it takes
It's been found that black pepper contains piperine508, which can enhance the absorption of curcumin by a staggering 2,000%.
This is great as curcumin may help to prevent heart disease and even Alzheimer's.
Curcumin is also fat soluble. That means eating it with fats, such as olive oil or ghee, will help the body absorb it better.
The berries and flowers of the elderberry plant encourage sweating that helps to break a fever.
Elderberry is traditionally used to make a tea, which should be taken three times a day.
It's normally used as a tea, taken three times a day to promote sweating and help with fever.
Yes, water should be your go-to beverage.
But some research suggests drinking three or more cups of caffeinated tea or coffee every day may reduce the chances of developing type 2 diabetes.
Researchers also credit antioxidants called polyphenols, contained in tea and coffee, for potential protection against the disease.
Green tea contains an antioxidant that has been shown to increase insulin sensitivity in the cells and slow down the rate at which blood sugar is released from the liver into the bloodstream.
Compared to other foods by weight, spirulina is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet.
It's high in protein and contains all essential amino acids. Spirulina is also high in B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, and contains a wide range of other vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
As spirulina is a very simple organism, the proteins and nutrients are easily digested and absorbed.
Add some bay leaves while you're pouring a bath and let them soak for at least a few minutes.
This can help skin conditions, such as eczema, fungal infections, or psoriasis.
Once you read the chapter on infections you will see the distinction between several types of infections, and I hope you will take to heart the importance of keeping your immune system strong.
That way it will always be ready to combat harmful bacteria and prevent suffering.
If you or a loved one ever have an infected wound, please follow the suggestions I'm giving in my book. Often when a person starts feeling better, they mistakenly believe an infection has resolved itself. Don't make that mistake. Stay one step ahead and be prepared.
Anyone who's facing any one of these conditions can instantly look it up. I then cover that condition from A to Z.
For every condition there's a section called "Understanding It" to make sure misunderstandings are cleared up. Then, I cover "Possible Complications" which might come up.
Next, there's a section to cover the "Symptoms" as well as "Possible Causes" of the condition.
Then I wrap up each condition by covering "Prevention" as well as research-based, science-backed "Natural Remedies."
I tried to include as many remedies as possible with ingredients you can grow in your garden, in a container on your balcony, or find in the wild, just in case going to the store to get them should be avoided.
For each plant you'll discover a brief introduction to understand the science behind each plant.
The healing benefit of these remedies is covered in CONDITIONS, and in REMEDIES. For the ease of cross-referencing, we've also indicated, under each plant, which conditions it can remedy.
For each plant you'll also learn "How to grow it" and "How to store it".
One of the most important parts of each plant-specific chapter is "How to turn it into a remedy? giving you step-by-step, easy-to-do instructions and tips on making:
...and many more
In this section you'll see how important it is for all these health-dots to connect correctly, especially when survival is on the line.
When I wrote this book 2 years ago, little did I know the role it would play in overcoming the medical challenges we're facing today.
I've also included pictures, illustrations, and photographs for clarity and ease of understanding. There are over 80+ figures and illustrations in this 401-Page Reference Book.

Oh, and there's more thing, and this is important:
During my years of research, I came across piles of useful information and experimented a lot with food that had health-boosting properties.
They're incredibly helpful to anyone wanting to know their options when the medical system is kaput, or we don't want to abuse it.
But it didn't make sense to put them into this Book of Survival Home Remedies.
That's why I decided to include them, free with my book, as a special bonus report.
I've put together a list of 100 delicious recipes to support those with conditions like: Arthritis, Back pain, Blood pressure, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Infections, Osteoporosis and many more.

This simple but powerful list is designed to help anyone discover exactly what foods help promote healing in the body.
This is a must for anyone with a passion for living their best independently-healthy life.
I've also included a whole section dedicated to foods rich in antioxidants.
These are foods that naturally detox the cells in our bodies so our organs function as they're designed.
Do you know the 7 principles of saving a man's life? If you don't, maybe it wouldn't hurt if you read this.
Broken bones, burns, skin infections, back pain, abdominal pain, plus cuts and contusions.
What should you do?
What shouldn't you do?
Every family should have access to competent triage and treatment strategies if an ER is inaccessible.

When I became a board certified doctor and surgeon, I took an oath.
I'm taking a similar oath with you here today. It works like this.
Simply give my 401-page book of Survival Home Remedies a big "maybe."
Then, start checking it out and start applying some of the remedies as needed.
You need to trust me. After trying this, I've seen people's lives taking a dramatic turn for the best.
Some see significant results right away, and I hope you will be one of them. But obviously, results will vary.
And I'm no Medical Medium that talks to creepy voices and "cures" celebrities. If you know what I mean.
Instead, I talk to facts and I help those who want my help to survive.
That's why, if, in the extremely, highly unlikely event, my Doctor's Book of Survival Home Remedies isn't a perfect fit for you, all you need to do is email my team within 60 days, and you'll get a full refund immediately.

Zero questions. Zero hassle. You have 60 days to see if this book is right for you.
Although I'm sure you'll be thrilled.
But don't take my word for it. Here's what others had to say:
"I thought my marathon running was over when I got Plantar Fasciitis, but then Dr. Herzog fixed me up in no time!"
"Thankfully, people like... Dr. Herzog help us to have additional healthful options for caring for ourselves! Medical doctors who prescribe pills are lifesavers, deserving our respect. But prevention and building up our health on our own is even better when possible!"
Diana T. from Maine, USA
"I thought my basketball career was over from my terrible ankles. Then I met Dr. Herzog, and he put me through a round of PRP Therapy. I was back on my feet within six weeks."
I just received the digital version of your book. I have been reading it non-stop. I like the way it is organized and easy to read/understand. I appreciate your concern on health and survival and find it to be like mine. I am looking forward to reading the book from cover to cover. Thank you for your experience, research, and recommendations. I am already taking notes to begin our healthier lifestyle!
Christine, from North Carolina
