During times of emergency and the aftermath of a natural disaster or a terrorist attack, most people will start to panic. They’ll rush to the malls and stores and buy up whatever essential items that they think they’ll need.
If you’re a savvy prepper, you’d have prepared all your stores and supplies beforehand. However, one item that’s usually used up quickly is medication. It’ll be extremely difficult to procure medication during a crisis.
Even aspirin will be sold out. In survival situations and times of stress, illnesses will rise. More people will find themselves having headaches, upset stomachs, diarrhea, etc. This is very common and even if you have medicine supplies stored, you’d be amazed at how fast they’re used up.
4 adults taking 4 aspirin tablets a day over 3 days is 48 tablets… and that’s only 3 days! So, you can imagine just how fast your medicine stocks can be depleted if the entire family is unwell, and that usually happens during a crisis.
There may be more headaches, flu, body aches, insect bites, indigestion, etc. Which brings us to an important question…
What do you do if you run out of medication? Will you panic and rush to the chemist? What if it’s closed or there are no more supplies?
Do not panic. There are several natural remedies that are highly effective and have worked for ages. Most people are unaware of these remedies because we live in a society where there’s a pill for everything.
Well, during a crisis, society tends to break down. So, it’s time to forget the pills and go natural. Below you’ll find a list of items that all preppers would do well to store.
These natural remedies are easy to obtain and not some fancy supplements like Ashwagandha that you need to pick up at a health store… No no. You can get the items below from most stores and they last for a long time. Let’s look at what they are.
