Quick Ways to Prep for an Economic Collapse

By Dan Sullivan

I think we can all agree that, regardless of who’s in the White House, an economic collapse is more than likely. The US as well as the entire world are more divided than ever, which means any law that would be good for the economy could be blocked, repealed and so on.

Whether the almost $20 trillion debt, Russia or some other factor will trigger an economic collapse, you have to be prepared. Keep in mind that Venezuela collapsed recently because of the drop in oil prices coupled with their Government’s socialist agenda, of course. This is proof that the drop that fills the glass can fall at any time.

In this article, I’m not looking to point fingers. Instead, I want to give you sure ways to prepare and make sure that, no matter what happens, your basic necessities will be met.

#1. Pay Your Debt

I’m sure you’ve heard this advice before, but let me ask you this: are you really sacrificing things in order to do this? Are you eating out less, using less fuel and reducing your carbon footprint? Getting out of your comfort zone can be challenging when you’re used to a certain lifestyle, but how else are you going to pay off your debt?

I know it’s hard… The trick is to do it gradually. Make it a weekly goal to use less, say only twice a week. This way you’ll be forced to ride a bike or a bus to work, or even to walk to the grocery store. It’s good for your health too.

You can make an entire list of things to slowly give up and save. Don’t give up on them completely, that’s only going to cause you to bounce back to where you were initially. Instead, let your body get used to the idea of eating out less or always buying the latest iPhone. YOU DON’T NEED IT!

#2. Get Financially Smart

It doesn’t matter where you live, you’re sure to find laws that will help you save or earn money, even in small amounts. While those laws may not amount to much in case of an economic collapse, they’ll fit perfectly into your new financial disciplinary program.

The perfect example are those laws that give you tax cuts if you pay your taxes early, but you’re sure to find more. Some call them loopholes, and many are controversial, but you don’t know until you research.

#3. Start a Stockpile

If you looked at what’s happening in Venezuela, you probably read about people eating their pets to avoid starvation. It’s important to look at other countries to see what items are going to become valuable in times of crisis, as well as to notice the behavior of those who become desperate.

Food should be at the top of the list so, instead of blocking large amounts of money in gold and silver, why not start a stockpile? I’m not saying you should disregard precious metals, just to set your priorities straight.

#4. Buy Property in a Secluded Place

Not just to live there if things get bad at your current location, but to be able to live off the land when your food stockpiles will diminish. You can start a garden and set up a rainwater harvesting system, but make sure it’s legal to gather that much water. Some states forbid it, which is why doing your due diligence is important.

Another problem you need to solve from the start is security. Since you won’t be there most of the time, it’s possible that someone will eventually steal your crops or your harvest. The obvious thing you can do is pick a place that’s away from the main road and to make sure the entire place looks deserted form the outside.

Another thing you can do is start a permaculture garden, which is a self-running ecosystem that works with a lot less human interaction. The big benefit is that from a distance it looks like bush, meaning the veggies are hidden under a layer of weeds and herbs. Permaculture principles are definitely something to look into, particularly since some people report higher yields compared to traditional gardening techniques.

#5. Don’t Forget the Other Basic Necessities

Once you’ve taken care of food, don’t forget water (which is actually more important because, if your water supply is contaminated, you’ll quickly dehydrate), clothes, home protection (from thugs, looters etc.), self-defense (firearms), as well as knives, tools to fix your home and ways to communicate.

Although prepping still has a bad stigma attached to it, I think we can all agree it is now mainstream, and for good reason: people are starting to realize that, just because things seem ok today, that might not be the case tomorrow.

#6. Avoid the Shiny Object Syndrome

There are many financial presentations out there, convincing us to invest in this or that stock, or to buy this or that precious metal.

See, what happens is that most people fall for these presentations and, I’m not trying to say they’re wrong, just that they’re OPINIONS. These opinions may be right or wrong, and the guys who formulate them don’t necessarily put a lot of thought into. Once they have something marketable, they then focus on how to make the presentations more appealing.

If you want to make money as an investor, the surest way to do it is to specialize on one thing and not give up until you figure it out. For example, if you want to invest in tech companies, forget everything else and start reading all the tech news you can. Not for a week or a month, but for years on end. Become an expert on that financial aspect and you’ll surely see long term profits.

This applies to business as well. Don’t try to start 3 businesses at once in 3 different niches, and don’t give up on them after a couple of months. Start one and stick to it. I started my website at www.SurvivalSullivan.com 2 years ago and the first 12 months were horrible. But I knew I had a mission and I didn’t quit, and now things are working much better.

So long as you see people in that niche that are successful, it means you can be too, you just have to put in the work and, if need be, some money (maybe from a partner, so you don’t go into debt).

Of course, if you want a business that will also work in case of an economic collapse, anything related to food, water and basic services is probably a good idea: organic food production, rainwater harvesting installments, personal security systems, clothing stores and outdoor stores. Basically anything that could provide things people will be interested in post-collapse (whether they’ll pay in cash or barter for).

All of This Sounds Easy, but How Should You Go About It?

Easy. Sort of. Start with #1 and make plans to pay off mortgage and other outstanding debt. After a week of nothing but focus on this one thing, start focusing on having a basic food and water stockpile. Again, make a plan, use an online spreadsheet to estimate costs and only purchase things you’ve thoroughly researched.

Once this is taken care of, you should look into buying some land, as well as to improve your stockpile. Now, I realize that you may not have the money since you’re still in debt, but this should only motivate you to pay it all off faster.

Getting Healthy Through Chiropractic

Dr. John Reizer

As a doctor of chiropractic, I have always felt an obligation to help educate patients, laypersons and anyone else that might have had a sincere desire to learn something about becoming healthier. This post has to do with the real life benefits associated with being under regular chiropractic care and how a better expression of human physiology and health can be realized by simply maintaining the integrity of the spine’s alignment.

My brother, Dr. Steven Reizer a successful chiropractor who practices in the Upstate of South Carolina, recently shared with me some pretty amazing results he achieved while working with a patient in his private practice.

The patient, a 14 year old male, entered his office complaining of neck pain and stiffness. Range of motion in the cervical spine had been diminished considerably. The boy reported the condition had been present for about eight months and had been getting progressively worse over time. After taking x-rays, Dr. Reizer discovered the young patient had a kyphosis in the cervical spine. This is a condition where the normal curve of the neck is reversed.

Upon careful examination of the radiographs (x-rays) it became apparent to Dr. Reizer that the cervical spinal bones in question were all well maintained and had not been fractured. Several of the bony segments in the region, however had been subluxated (slightly misaligned from each other) in a posterior direction. This situation had caused tremendous spasticity in many of the paraspinal muscles of the cervical spine. The spastic muscular activity along with the misaligned spinal segments caused a reversal of the normal cervical curve.

Chiropractic Care

The young patient was given a series of eight chiropractic adjustments over a six week period of time and then another set of cervical x-rays were taken to see if any changes might be noticeable. It should be noted that after the chiropractic adjustments were administered, the patient had normal range of motion and the pain and stiffness in his neck had abated.

Pre and Post X-Rays of Patient’s Cervical Spine

The first radiograph (taken before care commenced) pictured above on the left shows a very apparent kyphosis in the cervical spine. It’s possible to see in this view that the posterior arch of the Atlas vertebra (C1) has taken on the appearance of being pushed upward and into the occipital region of the skull. It’s also possible to see in this view that a number of cervical spinal segments have moved posterior in relationship to each other.

The spinal adjustments administered were very specific in that they addressed posteriority of the segments involved as well as any rotational considerations that were present in the patient’s spine.

Looking at the second radiograph on the right (taken six weeks after care commenced), it’s interesting to note from a clinical perspective that any posteriority associated with the mid and lower cervical segments as well as the extreme inferior tilting of the Atlas (C1) vertebra appear to have been corrected. It’s equally interesting to note that the kyphosis present earlier was replaced with an almost normal looking lordotic cervical curve. Keep in mind that these dramatic changes were made with only eight spinal adjustments.

It’s easy to see on a set of x-rays how the cervical spine can become adversely affected by vertebral subluxations. What is not visible, however is the amount of nerve damage that this problem can cause in the human body. Many spinal nerves can and do become negatively affected with the loss of proper spinal alignment and this can cause a loss of health and physiological expression in a person.

There is not a surgical procedure in existence nor a pharmaceutical product on the market that can correct a vertebral subluxation. Only a chiropractic adjustment can correct this problem. Vertebral subluxations occur at some point in most people and that is why it’s imperative that every person should take the time to have his or her spine checked by a qualified chiropractor each year.

OxyContin: Profiting from the Pain of Others

cropped-cropped-400dpilogo2.jpg

Dr. John L. Reizer

It’s been estimated by some sources that 80 percent of all drug addicts begin their habits by taking prescription painkillers. For far too long, aggressive drug campaigns, pushing addictive painkillers, have been marketed by pharmaceutical companies directly to healthcare professionals and hospitals.

Lavish vacations to exotic destinations for medical professionals that included seminars on how to control the pain of patients through the use of prescription drugs have contributed to an epidemic number of people becoming helplessly addicted to opiates.

Imagine for a moment you hurt your shoulder in an auto accident and require surgery followed by a lengthy amount of rehabilitation. Due to the clever marketing strategies that have been previously implemented by pharmaceutical companies in the direction of healthcare practitioners, you might unknowingly become a drug addict.

Patients are now routinely prescribed highly addictive painkillers for extended periods of time in an effort to control their levels of discomfort and improve their chances of making a better functional recovery in therapeutic scenarios. In other words, improving joint range of motion in an affected part of the body is thought to be unlikely without the proper management of pain through the use of prescription painkillers. And one of the most dangerous painkillers that healthcare consumers are prescribed and have become addicted to is OxyContin.

According to Forbes,  the Sackler family (Purdue Pharma) is the 16th richest family in America. Purdue Pharma is responsible for introducing the highly addictive painkiller,  OxyContin to physicians and hospitals throughout America.

Are There Serious Health Risks Associated With Getting Flu Vaccines?

cropped-cropped-400dpilogo2.jpg

Dr. John Reizer

Every year in the United States between the months of October and May, people are inundated with flu vaccination ads and news programs that are generated by pharmaceutical companies and government agencies such as the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). The mass marketing campaigns are relentless and cleverly designed to encourage (scare) citizens into getting the annual flu jab in order to supposedly boost human immunity against Influenza.

It’s frustrating for me, on a personal level, to watch the same campaign rolled out nationally and promoted by the powers that be every single year. You can count on it just like Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Flu season is officially on the US calendar and you can expect to see the agenda being pushed on every “Fakestream News” company you can possibly tune into.

Did you ever wonder where the Influenza virus resides during the months of June – September? Does it go to some other part of the world for a yearly holiday? Like magic it suddenly reappears in October and people are told to protect themselves with flu immunizations once again. Do you smell something fishy with this story line?

Is it possible that the flu vaccine campaign is actually the cause of the flu season? Is it possible the reason that flu season begins every October is because people begin receiving flu shots every September?

Before you roll up your sleeve, stick out your arm and let someone stick you with any vaccine, you better do your research and understand that all vaccines are medicinal concoctions and they carry potential risks to your health and well being. Don’t think for one second that there aren’t consequences attached to receiving vaccines of any kind.

There are plenty of research studies that show a connection between vaccines and neurological diseases such as Autism and Guillain-Barre syndrome. There are also plenty of attorneys that specialize in representing people that have been injured by these dangerous drugs. 

Watch the video below to see what can happen from getting one flu shot. Get informed and stay informed about your health and what you put inside your body!
