  • The first case of Ebola in a patient diagnosed in a U.S. hospital was confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Tuesday. The patient did not have symptoms when leaving West Africa, but developed symptoms approximately four days after arriving in the U.S. on Sept. 20.  Use these 10 tips to help keep you and your family safe.  We found this great informative article over on Healthy and Natural World .

    There are steps you can take to make sure that yourself and your loved ones have the best chance of surviving an Ebola outbreak.

     This article highlights what you should be doing as soon as you can, in preparation for a pandemic.

    1. Enhance your immune system with medicinal nutrients and herbs

    Your immune system is what ultimately saves you from contracting diseases, not drugs. This is something people forget about. In order to boost your immune system, so that you have a fighting chance of surviving Ebola, (or not contracting it in the first place), then stock up on anti-viral herbs, natural medicines, super-foods and nutritional supplements. This is especially necessary for the very young and elderly, who are even more vulnerable. But even for the fit and healthy, it is important to feed your body right. Think of it as an investment in your health, and your life.

    2. Stock up on food supplies in case of quarantines and food shortages

    During a medical quarantine, food stocks plummet. This is due to traffic restrictions in and out of the quarantine zone, drivers of transport delivery vehicles refusing to enter the quarantine zone and citizens stocking up on supplies because of fear of supply shortages. So, make sure you don’t starve. The time is now to stock up on food supplies that won’t perish anytime soon. Preparation is key.

    3. Be aware that disruptions will occur in banking

    When a region is under quarantine, it means that people cannot go to work. Those people also run the banks.

    So it is realistic to expect ATMs to stop working and banks closures due to the number of people making cash withdrawals. Our current banking system just isn’t designed to deal with such a situation.

    It is important that you have a readily available supply of cash so that you can pay for emergency supplies, which are bound to be sold at highly inflated black market prices in the midst of a quarantine.

    In anticipation for a quarantine, now is the time to start thinking about how you will deal with that situation.

    4. Be aware that disruptions will occur in water and power supplies

    Water and electricity are basic things which we use daily, but take for granted. However, it is sensible to anticipate that there could be major shortages.

    Therefore, you should take the following preparation methods:

    • Water – You will need a large supply of back-up water in your home. The easiest way to do this is to purchase a water bob and fill it up to the max. This will give you 100 gallons or so which will last you and an average sized family a few days. If you can’t get hold of a water bob, then a good alternative is to fill your bath tubs up to the max with water.
    • Electricity – You should stock up on flashlights, batteries, gas lamps, candles and matches. A quarantine would be scary enough, without having to live in the dark.
