Getting a simple infection can be deadly.
And the severity increases in an emergency situation.
Here are some natural remedies to fight off serious infection.
When we think about the greatest threats to civilization, nuclear war and government tyranny tend to be at the top of the list.
Pandemics also have the ability to spread quickly and widely, and that is becoming an increasing threat with the rise of the “superbug” – infections that are resistant to antibiotics.
The overuse of antibiotics and pesticides have contributed to virulent strains of bugs that are difficult to deal with.
That’s why it’s important not to be too reliant on antibiotics for minor infections, as many people have become accustomed to doing.
One way to combat the problem is to use natural antibiotics.
Here are some natural means for warding off infections.
First, garlic is one of the best natural remedies for fighting infection.
It is both antibacterial and antiviral. Bacteria are larger, single-cell organisms that can replicate everywhere, while viruses are smaller, and they need a host body to invade in order to replicate.
Unlike antibiotics, infections can’t grow a tolerance to garlic.
Next, ginger is a strong antibacterial.
Ginger in tea form is good for fighting bacterial respiratory infections, and it can also be used as a wound cleanser.
It also can help with an upset stomach and joint pain.
Honey is also a very potent antibiotic.
It can help with skin wounds as well as infections found in the mouth.
A combination of ginger and honey will be effective against just about any superbug.
Another effective natural antibiotic is apple cider vinegar.
Gargling apple cider vinegar can combat mouth infections like thrush, sinus infections, throat infections, and gum infections.
Drinking apple cider vinegar in small doses can also help flush toxins from the body.
Turmeric is another root that’s good for fighting infection and inflammation.
It has similar properties to ginger, but it’s ideal to have both on hand.
Some studies have shown that turmeric mixed with olive oil and black pepper can help battle cancer.
There is some evidence to suggest that curcumin, a substance found in turmeric, eradicates cancer cells for certain types of cancer.
Next, oregano oil can be a useful natural remedy.
Oregano oil can help battle intestinal parasites caused by unsanitary drinking water, which can be absolutely deadly.
In addition to fighting nasty parasites, oregano oil can also help with sinus and ear infections.
Finally, alcohol can be used to fight infection.
It won’t do much good for internal infections, but it is effective for cleaning wounds and sanitizing materials.
Stockpiling first-aid supplies is important work for a survivalist, but understanding how to use natural remedies can help you fight against aggressive superbugs and give you resources that can be grown and cultivated for the long haul.
