I'm doctor John Herzog and this question used to keep me up at night.
So much so that few years ago I started 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 that can 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 am an orthopedic and trauma surgeon.
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
When I was considering where in this country to settle after medical school, I was first attracted to New Hampshire because of the state motto.
3 decades of caring for other people as an orthopedic and traumatic surgeon, is never easy. But the way I see it, there's a solution for everything.
Mom and Dad, The Cowboy Doctor
As you're an orthopedic surgeon on call for the entire city, you must be able to put Humpty Dumpty back together again when the chopper comes in.
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.
Then you've got to understand not only the physical problems, but the psychological issues in dealing with grief, guilt, and ongoing medical problems.
The aftermath of trauma is 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 that day.
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!
That was also around the time when more reliable research on natural remedies came out, and I devoured them immediately.
Later I led my own study with medical students and started moving toward a home-remedy based lifestyle.
These studies radically changed my diet, my way of treating myself and my patients and in fact it changed my whole life. I learned from experience 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.
People don't understand how important diet is to their health. But it's actually quite simple - if you eat a poor diet you have poor health.
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 medical health care
So, by understanding what I eat, my cholesterol reading today is back where it should be, I don't have pain in my back or knees, and I'm fully functional.
Simply because I changed my diet, I now feel like in my 20s and I wish everyone could feel this way.
I truly believe if we all moved to a correct diet, we would spend 80% less on our healthcare. What we eat is killing us.

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.
Peppermint plants 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.
Contained 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 decrease sugar production in the liver, slow the rate at which the body breaks down carbohydrates and increase 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 others that you can discover inside 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 does that.
To make myself a pain-relieving tea, 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%.
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 that drinking three or more cups of caffeinated tea or coffee every day may reduce the chances of developing type 2 diabetes.
Researchers credit antioxidants called polyphenols, contained in tea and coffee, for the potential protection against the disease.
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.
