A good survivalist has a fully stocked medicine cabinet. There are a number of medications and all natural items that you need to keep on hand – just in case. The items on this list will help you sleep, keep you awake, and protect your thyroid should nuclear fallout become a reality. Make sure to add them to your stash of medications.
Goldenseal root is great for boosting your immune system. It even has antifungal and antibacterial properties. It’s best to keep a stash of these multi-purpose medications (even all natural ones like this one) on hand. However, you do need to keep in mind that Goldenseal can alter your blood pressure, so be careful when using it.
2) Fresh Green Black Walnut Wormwood Complex
Parasites can cause a huge amount of gastrointestinal distress. If you’re drinking water that hasn’t been properly sterilized, then you’re at risk for ending up with a case of them. This medication with a very long name is one of the best ways to rid your body of these harmful microbes. Just follow the instructions on the bottle.
3) Saltstick Caps Plus
Muscle cramps can quickly render you useless. If you have to walk a long way and you’re unprepared for such a hike, then you could end up with major muscle cramps in your legs. They’ll make it very hard to walk. Saltstick Caps Plus contain plenty of electrolytes, as well as sodium. Take them as directed and you won’t have those cramps anymore – they can even prevent them.
Tooth pain can render a person miserable very quickly. There are so many different nerve endings in the mouth that pain seems amplified. This is where Hurricaine comes in. It’s a great pain reliever for this purpose. Just rub some on your gums and you’ll feel better very quickly.
5) Melatonin and Caffeine
Sometimes sleeping (and then waking up) can be tricky, especially when you’re in a survivalist situation. However, you do need your rest in order to keep your energy up. Melatonin is an all-natural compound that can help you sleep. Then, when you need to be awake, have some caffeine on hand.
6) Thieves Oil
If you’re worried about pandemics, then stock your medicine cabinet with thieves oil. It can help prevent infections and provide some respiratory support.
7) IOSAT (Potassium Iodide Tablets)
Despite the world’s best efforts at dealing with nuclear weapons, fallout remains a major worry. You never know when something may happen to cause a nuclear reactor to meltdown or when a nuclear war may break out. You need to be prepared, and you will be, thanks to these potassium iodide tablets. They’ll protect your thyroid gland from radioactivity.
Major changes in your diet can lead to a number of issues, including constipation. MiraLAX is designed to help. It’s one of the best stool softeners around, especially if you can get your hands on the prescription-strength version. If not, then the over the counter one will suffice.
9) Oregano Oil
Oregano oil is more than something that you feel the need to sprinkle on your food. It’s also an anti-inflammatory that can keep insects and bed bugs at bay. You can even use it to treat the flu and various colds.
10) Tea Tree Oil
While you never want to ingest (drink) tea tree oil, it has some great external uses. You can place it in a diffuser where it’ll help clear up sinus infections and colds. You can also apply a little to any cuts and scrapes. Its antifungal properties will help quite a bit.
