On our next program the panel of Mannie Barling, Ashley F. Brooks and Simon Barrett will be joined by special guest Sue McKinney.

On Surviving The 21st Century we tend to dwell on the bad side of life. Minor issues like why does a Swanson Hungry Man Dinner require 150 ingredients, most of which are unpronounceable. Or why does a Strawberry Marguita mix have no strawberries listed on the ingredient list?

I may (and likely am wrong), but I view the very start of Modern Medicine as being a very recent event. Penicillin was a wonder drug, but you also need to take a step back in time. Men and Women have been stomping their way around our Earth for some considerable amount of time.

Ancient man had many problems to conquer. Illness and injury were huge concerns. There was no 911 service if you ended up at the wrong place and the wrong time with a mad Woolly Mammoth. There was no handy bottle of Aspirins if you had a headache.

Yet when you explore the ancient world, you find many examples of mankind using the natural resources available to them. The Aloe plant is the simple example, if you have a sunburn, Aloe will take the sting out.

In Europe there is a nasty little plant known as the Stinging Nettle, brush against it, you will feel that a thousand miniscule bees have stung you, but rub a Dock leaf on the problem, it goes away.

We live in a world of little white pills, but are these little white pills worth it? Are there options?

Sue McKinney will be explaining one option, Crila. No, it is not the answer to everything, however it does seem to have an effect on some medical issues.

Please join us tomorrow on Surviving The 21st Century at 1pm eastern as we explore the world of Crila. The listen live link is here. You can also find more information about Crila here.
