Why Learn About Natural Antibiotic Uses?
Do you find yourself wondering what event will cause enough widespread devastation to bring an end to our modern way of living? Chances are, nuclear blasts, military takeovers, and financial collapse are all primary causes that leap to mind first.
At best, you might consider widespread epidemics as something more likely to be caused by social collapse instead of actually being the primary driving factor.
In the post-crisis world, poor sanitation, consuming unfamiliar foods, increased risk of injuries, and soaring stress levels are all going to create a situation where you may need antibiotics to treat an infection.
Many people are surprised to discover that they have potent, safe antibiotics right in their own kitchen. Take the time now to learn how to grow and make these simple foods into powerful medicines that will serve you and your family well in a time of crisis.

Modern medicine has created such an incredible expansion of lifespan for all sorts of creatures on our planet. It's easy to say that things like antibiotics are bad and are harming the world. They might even be creating a serious superbug that is antibiotic-resistant.
Chances are, however, you wouldn't be able to say any of that if you didn't have modern-day antibiotics. People are living longer than ever and its an incredible feat.
So what happens when the world falls apart and there are no more bottles of antibiotics? Well, you are going to have to understand the natural ones.
Yes, our planet has a collection of natural antibiotics that can be used to help deal with diseases as well. While it is not always the most ideal way to treat, it is effective.
This article is about 7 all-natural antibiotics that you can use when the time comes.
Survival antibiotics are often overlooked by preppers. One reason is that preppers don’t know which ones to buy or even where to get them.
Another reason is that they haven’t needed them before so they forget that they might need them in the future. I am not a doctor so always consult a professional before you stockpile any antibiotic, just in case you're allergic to it.
There are so many other ways to get your hands on some of these antibiotics without having to even see a doctor!
Yes, you read that right! I personally have hundreds of antibiotics in Mylar bags that are stored away for that just-in-case day!
Sugardine is commonly used as a veterinary antiseptic, but it has its uses for survival situations as well.
It is extremely easy to make, simple to apply, and it is great at killing bacteria. Sure, there are plenty of antibiotics you can apply to wounds, but what if you run out or the antibiotics become ineffective?
While storing and having access to medical gear is great, versatility and resourcefulness can be just as important.
Sugardine has been used for a long time to keep bacteria out of wounds. It has even been featured in medical journals where they describe the unexpected benefits of the mixture.
I am not a doctor and would not pretend to be one. There are plenty of store-bought antiseptics or antibiotics that work just fine. If you are in dire need of medical attention, do not break out the sugar and iodine, find a doctor immediately.
See how Sugardine can go from horse stable to survival staple in the article below.
Getting a prescription can be quite expensive. I know when I visit my doctor I pay around $150. So for that reason alone, I have taken it upon myself to learn more about natural healing and remedies. Especially natural antibiotics.
I found a great article from naturalnews.com where they list 10 amazing powerful and natural antibiotics. Obviously, if you have a serious illness, I would recommend going to a doctor or hospital right away (and please read my disclaimer).
These natural antibiotics could be used in emergency situations or in a pinch until you can get to a doctor.
Did you know that RX prescriptions kill our friendly gut bacteria, mess up our digestive system, lower immunity, and give rise to the development of super-bacteria that become resistant to the most powerful drugs? It's a bit scary right? So learn more about using natural remedies instead.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
After watching recent events unfold and speaking to family and friends, my wife and I decided to start prepping.
