Stock Your Medications in Your Survival Kit

If you take regular medications be sure to have sufficient quantities of them for a long time. Additional medications that you will want to add to your survival kit may be needed. Aspirin works for most fevers, and minor aches and pains, ibuprofen is for inflammation like swollen joints. Additional over the counter medications you should have on hand are Kaopectate for diarrhea, and Pepto Bismol for stomach maladies.

Have an unbreakable thermometer in your kit. With the added stress and a limited diet, be sure to have vitamin supplements in your kit also. Look for energy boosting and fatigue fighting natural supplements like B12, or ginseng. Sugar and caffeine abound in energy bars and drinks. use them cautiously. If someone eats something tainted you will want to induce vomiting Ipecac syrup will do the trick. Ask your doctor if he would allow you to have an extra months worth of any regular prescription medications you are taking.

Natural Antibiotics

It is doubtful that you will be able to get any type of pharmaceutical antibiotics prior to a disaster. Stocking up on antibiotics by not taking all of the prescription you doctor gives you is a bad idea. This is a foolish way of amassing antibiotics and could be dangerous to your health.

Instead, check out natural antibiotics. A place to start learning about natural herbs is “Herbal Remedies Secrets” an ebook filled with information on the natural healing powers of herbs. It is a wealth of knowledge on how to grow and brew your own herbs and what herbs are used to treat individual conditions

In conclusion, when disaster strikes, don’t neglect your health, it could mean the difference between life or death. Without a survival plan and a survival kit which includes both prescription medications and natural cures, you may not be able to survive a disaster. And finally, educate yourself on how to take care of yourself and your family members in an emergency.
