In a SHTF situation, having access to any kind of supply of modern medicine will be a very rare thing. Humanity will be forced to go back to herbal treatments for their ailments. While society would have you believe that herbal treatments and remedies aren’t as good or ineffective, history tells us a different story.
Many of the more common ailments can be treated by using something other then a man made chemical. Almost everyone knows about willow bark tea (pain relief) but what about Comfrey? Comfrey is a soother for irritated skin and also relieves pain from arthritis. A simple flower, Comfrey packs a medical punch!
If you look into history, all of the medicine that has gotten us to present day started with flowers, roots, and herbs. A lot of this knowledge has been lost but there is a growing movement that is rekindling the interest and use of more natural medicines. NOTE: There are times when using herbal treatments are not recommended. Using common sense is important to keeping the stigma of “quack medicine” off of these viable and inexpensive treatments!
