17 NATURAL ANTIBIOTICS OUR GRANDPARENTS USED INSTEAD OF PILLS

17-natural-antibiotics-our-grandparents-used-instead-of-pills

For hundreds of years, maybe even longer, our grannies and grandfathers relied on simple household items to heal. For that purpose, they picked different natural antibiotics, which they mostly found in home, gardens or meadows and woods nearby.

Much of this came out of necessity. Rather than using an antibacterial facial scrub, our Nanas massaged honey deep into their pores. By using proven old home remedies, we can treat and cure various health problems and do a lot for our health avoiding unpleasant medications side effects, too.

Some of these remedies even date back thousands of years, as far back as the tribes of Central and South America. Now, perhaps with the advent of slow-living, these products are slipping back into style. Many appreciate the remedies for their simplicity, price, or their low-impact on the earth. Rather than spend $8 on sea salt spray, you can simple mix some salt with water and spritz it into your hair. You save money as well as a package.

In honor of our ancestors, we’ve gathered some of our favorite time-honored traditions. These timeless products have earned a permanent place in our pantries.

Garlic

Raw garlic when crushed or chewed contains a compound called allicin – which has similar properties to penicillin.

This superfood member of the onion family is antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, and antioxidant (mopping up free radicals that have been proven to cause cancer).

For more than seven millennia, it has been used internally and externally to treat mild illness to serious diseases.

Everything from inflammation to colds to serious infections is minimized and/or obliterated with the addition of garlic and for those who don’t enjoy the taste, there are supplements as well. Check into “aged” garlic supplements for the best results.

Garlic is not only potent, it contains a host of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals that are beneficial to total body wellness. Not to mention the cost is pennies in comparison to doctor visits and prescriptions!

Unlike chemical antibiotics that kill millions of friendly bacteria your body needs, its only goal is bacteria and microorganisms. Garlic also encourages and increases the level of healthy bacteria. It is a powerful antifungal agent and destroys any antigen, pathogen, and harmful disease-causing microorganisms.

  • Garlic packs a punch with phytochemicals and healing sulfur components. These sulfur compounds even chelate toxic heavy metals (like lead & cadmium), binding with them for excretion out of the body.
  • It has antibacterial, anti-fungal, and even antiviral qualities.
  • It promotes the growth of healthy intestinal microflora by acting as a prebiotic (food for probiotics).
  • Garlic helps keep fats from oxidizing.
  • Garlic acts as a strong antioxidant and guards against DNA damage.
  • It protects against radiation & sunlight damage.
  • Garlic fights worms and parasites.
  • It benefits digestion, which is good for the whole body.
  • It contains many nutrients such as vitamins (C, B1, B2, B3), minerals (calcium, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, and phytochemicals (Allicin, beta-carotene, beta-sitosterol, caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid, diallyl-disulfide, ferulic acid, geraniol, kaempferol, linalool, oleanolic acid, p-coumaric acid, phloroglucinol, phytic acid, quercetin, rutin, s-allyl-cysteine, saponin, sinapic acid, & stigmasterol).

Honey

Herbalists consider honey as one of the best natural antibiotics. It also contains antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. A 2014 study presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society found that honey has the ability to fight infection on multiple levels, making it more difficult for bacteria to develop resistance to it.

Ancient Romans used honey on the battlefield to treat wounds and prevent infection.

Civilizations all over the world continue to consider honey one of the best natural antibiotics, antimicrobials, anti-inflammatories, and antiseptics known to man after thousands of years.

Its unique combination of hydrogen peroxide, acidity, osmotic effect, high sugar concentration and polyphenols help kill bacterial cells. To get the antibiotic benefit of honey, always use raw, organic honey.

Olive leaf extract

This substance has been used for a number of centuries to battle bacterial infections and is now currently being used as well to fight MRSA infections in some European hospitals. It provides immune system support while fighting antibiotic-resistant infections. Olive leaf extract also has anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, it exhibits free-radical scavenging abilities.

  • You can make olive leaf extract for external use at home. Put a handful of finely chopped fresh olive leaves into a glass jar with a lid. Pour vodka over the leaves until they are completely covered. Close the lid and keep the jar in a dark place for 4 to 5 weeks. Using a cheesecloth, strain the liquid into another glass jar and your homemade olive leaf extract is ready to use.
  • Another option is to take olive leaf extract in supplement form. 250 to 500 mg capsules twice daily is the standard dosage. However, consult a doctor before taking the supplement.

Turmeric

This herb has been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for many thousands of years to treat a wide range of infections. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities have been known to be highly effective in the treatment of bacterial infections. The antimicrobial activity of curcumin against helicobacter pylori showed positive results. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric.

  • Mix 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder and 5 to 6 tablespoons of honey. Store it in an airtight jar. Have ½ teaspoon of this mixture twice daily.
  • You can also take turmeric supplements of 400 to 600 mg, twice daily. However, consult your doctor first.

Echinacea

With similar effects to garlic, it was traditionally used to treat open wounds, as well as blood poisoning, diphtheria and other bacteria-related illnesses. Echinacea is well tolerated and able to stimulate the immune system by naturally boosting infection fighters in your blood stream. Native to North America, Echinacea has been used for centuries in tribal medicine to treat pain and sickness.

Unlike garlic, this antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral solution is generally used at the first signs of illness and should not be taken for more than ten days. It is available in liquid and capsule form.

Echinacea is also used against many other infections including the urinary tract infections, vaginal yeast infections, genital herpes, bloodstream infections (septicemia), gum disease, tonsillitis, streptococcus infections, syphilis, typhoid, malaria, and diphtheria.

Cayenne peppers

Cayenne peppers are the most powerful circulation stimulators. They just send their antibiotic properties to fight the disease where it is mostly needed.

Onion

Onion is garlic’s closest relative and it has a similar but milder action. Together they create a strong fighting duo.

Raw apple cider vinegar

The far-reaching benefits of daily doses of apple cider vinegar (ACV) include antibiotic and antiseptic properties, naturally alkalizing your system, and can aid you in everything from managing your weight to lowering cholesterol and your risk of cancer.

A chemical-free astringent, ACV can be used topically to disinfect and sterilize.

Oregano oil

Oil of oregano is considered anti-microbial, antibacterial, anti-parasitic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal.

It can be used internally and externally in the treatment of wounds, respiratory problems, digestive upset, and even the common cold.

  • For treating foot or nail infections, add a few teaspoons of oregano oil to a tub filled with warm water. Soak your feet in it for a few minutes daily for a week.
  • For sinus and other upper respiratory infections, put a few drops of the oil of oregano in a pot of boiling water and inhale the steam. Do this once daily until you get rid of the infection.

Colloidal Silver

While colloidal silver is highly antibiotic in nature, I suggest only using it for external uses such as gargling, ear infections like swimmers’ ear and skin.  The reason is that ingestion of colloidal silver does damage the delicate gut microbiome by killing beneficial bacteria though not as extensively as drug based antibiotics. If you need the assistance of natural antibiotics to consume internally, choose another one on this list, not colloidal silver.

Grapefriut seed extract(GSE)

Grapefruit seed extract (GSE) effective against more than 800 forms of viruses and bacteria, more than a hundred strains of fungus, and many parasites.

High in many antioxidants, GSE boosts immunity, alkalizes the body naturally, and aids in digestion by improving your beneficial gut flora.

Ginger

Ginger’s natural antibiotic property helps prevent and treat many health problems caused by bacteria. Fresh ginger has an antibiotic effect against food-borne pathogens like salmonella. It also has an antibacterial effect on respiratory and periodontal infections.

So, if you are going to eat something that has the potential for food borne illness such as sushi or raw oysters, always best to eat some fresh ginger (raw and pickled is most potent) too in order to make use of its natural antibiotic properties.

  • Ginger tea is a great preventive measure against bacterial infections. To make the tea, grate 1 inch of fresh ginger and boil it in about 1½ cups of water for 10 minutes. Strain, add honey and lemon juice for taste and drink it.
  • Also, include dry or fresh ginger in your cooking. You can also take ginger capsules, after consulting your doctor.

Manuca Honey

What would this list of natural antibiotics be without raw honey which has been used as an infection fighter since ancient times?  Of all the raw honey on the planet, Manuka honey from New Zealand is the best when it comes to resolving infections. An enzyme found in honey releases hydrogen peroxide. This process helps your body fight infection and prevents the growth of bacteria. Soothing to the digestive system, honey removes toxins from the blood and helps your liver operate more efficiently.

A great boost to the immune system, consider combining honey with cinnamon to strengthen your white blood cells! Raw, organic honey is the best option since most pasteurization methods kills the antioxidant effects.

Cabbage

What many people don’t realize is how much vitamin C is found in cabbage. One cup provides 75% of what you need every day.

Naturally antibacterial, eating shredded raw cabbage in your salad, as a side dish in the form of slaw, or drinking fresh cabbage juice (with honey added to sweeten) is an excellent way to improve digestion, prevent disease, and even manage your weight!

Extra virgin coconut oil

There is not enough that can be said for the benefits of coconut oil. It has naturally occurring anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties and is packed with antioxidants you can’t find anywhere else in nature.

Use it to boost your immune system, balance thyroid, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels, and even improve brain function. Safe to use internally and externally, coconut oil is one of the most versatile and unique gifts from Mother Nature.

Goldenseal

Goldenseal’s natural antibiotic property works well for both topical and internal bacterial infections. Goldenseal contains a compound called berberine that helps kill many types of bacteria that cause many health problems.

Berberine also activates white blood cells, making them better at fighting infection and strengthening the immune system.

  • For internal use, prepare a cup of herbal tea by steeping 1 teaspoon of goldenseal powder in 1 cup of hot water. Strain and drink it while it is still warm. Drink this tea once daily.
  • For external use, prepare a mixture with 1 teaspoon of goldenseal powder and the oil of a few vitamin E capsules. Apply it to the affected area 3 times a day.

Note: Do not take this herb internally for more than a few weeks at a time.

Indian lilac or neem

Neem, also known as Indian lilac, is another natural antibiotic. In addition, due to its antibacterial nature, neem keeps different types of oral problems like cavities, plaque, gingivitis and other gum diseases at bay.

  • To prevent skin infections, use cosmetics and skin care products that have neem as one of the main ingredients.
  • Take neem tablets to help remove accumulated toxins in the body and any parasitic organisms. Consult your doctor for the correct dosage.

 

History has shown us many times that it can all fly away in a split of a second. The biggest misstep that you can take now is to think that this can never happen in America or to you! Call me old fashioned; I don’t care…but I completely believe in America and what our ancestors stood for. They all had a part in turning this land into one of the most powerful countries in the world. Believe it or not, our ancestors skills are all covered in American blood. Saving our forefathers ways starts with people like you and me actually relearning these old skills and putting them to use to live better lives through good times and bad. Our answers on these lost skills comes straight from the source, from old forgotten classic books written by past generations, and from first hand witness accounts from the past few hundred years. Aside from a precious few who have gone out of their way to learn basic survival skills, most of us today would be utterly hopeless if we were plopped in the middle of a forest or jungle and suddenly forced to fend for ourselves using only the resources around us. Our grandfathers lived more simply than most people today are willing to live and that is why they survived with no grocery store, no cars, no electricity, no running water and no pharmacy. Just like our forefathers used to do, The Lost Ways Book  teaches you how you can survive in the worst-case scenario with the minimum resources available. It comes as a step-by-step guide accompanied by pictures and teaches you how to use basic knowledge to stay alive even in the worse case scenarios.

10 BUG OUT BAG MISTAKES THAT CAN GET YOU KILLED

10 BUG OUT BAG MISTAKES THAT CAN GET YOU KILLED

10 BUG OUT BAG MISTAKES THAT CAN GET YOU KILLED

Bugging out is a last ditch option in times of need, yet a situation that one should consider. However, families all over the country are forced from their homes every day due to fires, natural disasters, evacuations and localized issues. In putting together my own experience with my bug out bags over the years and seeing the kits of others, I came up with a list of 10 mistakes I see common in bug out bags.

Keep in mind there is no wrong bug out bag, any bug out bag is better than nothing. But avoiding these mistakes will save you money, hone your bag to a do anything be anything platform that can save your life, deliver you safely to your bug out location and serve as a basis for a larger survival system. Years ago, when I made my first bug out bag I committed most, if not all the mistakes on this list. Over the years, as I reassessed my bug out situation, my needs of change, I recognized lots of these mistakes and began correcting them. If you’re thinking about making your first bug out bag (and everyone should have one), or perhaps you already have one and you’re looking for inspiration on how to do it better hopefully this article will help. The goal of any bug out is to avoid conflict and reach your destination as fast and as safe as possible. Really, you want to hunker in as much as humanly possible especially if you have a family. If the neat arises you really want to be able to go from your not safe place to your safe place as quickly and safely as possible. This will help ensure your survival. Only a well made plan and a proper execution of the plan will safely get you to your bug out location and your bug out bag will increase your likelihood of survival. So, let’s see the top ten mistakes.

#1 Buying the bug out bag first

This is an intuitive mistake to make and the most common. You think ‘’it’s a bug out bag…the most important think is the bag right?’’ and there is truth in that but you want to take that decision appropriately, with as much information about what are you going to put into it as you possibly can. The first thing you need to know is how much stuff you are going to put in your bug out bag, how big it needs to be. My first advice is to put your kit together first then buy the bag. Assess what are the things you need to bring with you and buy the bag that’s going to fit all that stuff properly and work well for you. If you buy the bug out bag first you’ll have the tendency to fill it up to the gills and then is way too heavy or you buy one that is too small and is not going to fit everything that you need. My second advice is to avoid buying your bug out bag on the internet without having any experience with it. Get out there and try as many different bags as possible. Don’t buy bug out bags for your wife and kids. Let them pick out their own. The bag may seem very comfortable for you but may be very uncomfortable and cause pains and discomfort for your kids or wife. The point here is that a bag that doesn’t fit and ride well can cause you injuries and certainly not going to help you at all. Buy smart…first put your kit together than buy the bag.

#2 Your bug out bag is too tactical

I made this mistake too. Your bug out bag is not an assault bag. If you walk out your front door in a bug out situation looking like a marine, then you got some issues with your bug out bag. If you’re all dressed in camouflage and you have a big tactical military bag on your back, an AR 15 in your hands and a shotgun strapped to the side…trust me…that’s not the way. The whole key of bugging out is that you need to blend in. Most preppers live in urban and suburban areas, so you want to blend in with that as much as possible. If you look, for instance, at special forces Navy Seals in Afghanistan most of the times you see them they’re gonna be wearing indigenous clothing, growing beards and hair  to blend in. You want to keep a low profile and avoid getting involved in conflicts. I’m not saying you don’t have to take any tactical gear with you. Prepping is like life, everything within moderation. Surplus military equipments are great deals, durable and there’s no problem working some of that into your gear. Certainly you want to have a firearm with you by all means, a concealed carry weapon or something. The blending in with the society is your number one rule.

#3 Your bug out bug is ‘’to bushcraft’’

I call this the Bear Grills syndrome. I am all for bushcraft, survival techniques, survival skills. For the long term skills become very valuable and can really save lives if you run out of supplies. Regularly, when you see bug out bags that are relying too heavily on bushcraft and survival skills they don’t have nearly enough solid life preserving equipment in them…not enough food, not enough water to get them from point A to point B or from safe to safer to safest as quickly as possible. It’s a dangerous assumption to make that you’re going to get everything you need along the way. There are going to be others that think the same as you, so don’t just assume that you’re gonna be that one to do it, you’re gonna be the one that’s gonna make it, you’re gonna be the one that’s gonna survive. If anything goes wrong out there you’ll have nothing to fall back on. So that bug out bag should be able to sustain you for the amount of time that it takes to get to your bug out location.

#4 No strategy

Plan your movement strategy in advance. Practice your bug out. Choose your main route and always have a backup route. Practice it with your family so that when something happens and disaster strikes you’re out and you’re on your way to get to your safe place as quickly as you can get. The best way to do that is to know where you’re going, how you’re gonna get there and be well practiced in knowing how long is going to take, knowing exactly what you’re gonna need along the way. If things go wrong you do have your bug out bag to help you out but you’re main goal is to get from point A in point B as quickly as possible. Keep in mind that once you leave your house you have voluntarily made yourself a refugee, a well prepared refugee but still a refugee and you want to be in that situation for a shorter time as humanly possible.

BulletproofHomeDefense

#5 You’re out of shape

If you’re not in shape and after 1 mile you’re no longer able to walk it doesn’t really matter what’s in your bug out bag. This could kill you and your family by slowing them too. Remember that your main goal is to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible. Having to spend more time on the way to your bug out location could mean more problems. If you have not practiced with your bag and you cannot carry your bag then you missed the point of bugging out. Test your bag in week-ends. Take 10-15 miles hikes with your bag to see if it fits you well, if it is too heavy or injures you. Involve all your family testing them too, otherwise you’ll have to face all these problems when you really need to get to your bug out location and the bag will become a problem instead of helping you to get there safe.

#6 ‘’Lone wolf’’ mentality

This is a mentality that permeates a lot in the prepping community. Don’t assume you’re going to be alone. I see this mentality especially in survivalists. Chances are you’re not going to be alone. If you react to disaster like everybody else you might be going the same way everybody else is going and you’re not going to be by yourself so you have to deal with that. Especially if you have a family with you don’t assume that you can compensate for them in a disaster. They have to be involved too. So if you’re a prepper and you need to do a bug out bag then they need to do it too and if you’re going to practice then they need to do it too. They need to know what is going on, how to get there, they need to know exactly how to react in different scenarios. So you’re not a lone wolf, you’re not going to be alone because your family is going to be with you. That is the first reason we prep, to keep the loved ones safe.

#7 No info in your bug out bag

I carry in my bug out bag an envelope with all the crucial info that I need in case TSHTF. Many preppers forget or don’t even think about this aspect. This envelop contains all the relevant information that I need. Let’s assume that the house catches fire and you have to leave immediately I will have information that I can use to help get our lives back together as quickly as possible. So let’s see what this envelope contains:

Family pictures, bank accounts, insurance info, credit cards info, photo copies of birth, wedding certificates, car titles, ID, driver license and the big thing that not many think to include…a contact list. This contact list should include:

  • family members phone numbers

  • friends and important people phone number and addresses

  • important phone numbers and addresses

You really want to have that info with you the whole time, it’s lite and easy to carry. You’ll be surprised to know how many people don’t have this info in their bug out bag.

LibertyGenerator

#8 No money in your bug out bag

Common wisdom dictates that you should have between 400 and 500 dollars in your bug out bag in small bills, a little bit of change wouldn’t be a bad idea, a little gold and silver. So cash is a very important part of your kit. Keep that in mind.

#9 No means to repair your bag

I like to keep this as a separate kit in my bag. And I’m not talking about a little sewing kit here but I’m talking about a specific kit to repair your bag. This kit should include extra strap material, buckles and things like that for your bag, heavy duty high quality patching material, needle and high quality thread. If you have a synthetic bag you can use the adhesive patches. They work really well. You want to make sure to add some safety pins in case your zipper fails. Keep all this stuff as a separate kit in your bug out bag so you can reach to it fast in case you need it. In case your bug out bag brakes and you can’t carry your stuff is not going to do you any good.

#10 Not enough first aid for your stomach

Everybody has a first aid kit in their bug out bag, and most people concentrate on tourniquets and
trauma, broken bones and gunshot wounds and preventing infections and things like that, but in reality you’ll have the biggest issues with your stomach. The stress of a bug out situation alone can cause you stomach and digestive issues. In many situations, you can have a bad case of diarrhea, vomiting or constipation. What I like to see in a bug out bag is fiber pills and the individually packed fiber drink mixes. Those are really good in keeping you fiber intake up and your gut happy J.You can add Pepto-Bismol, Imodium AD ( ad a good quantity in case you’ll have a sever diarrhea) , ginger tablets for nausea. Diarrhea, vomiting, constipation are all things that can incapacitate you very quickly and can kill you in a couple of days so keep a good amount of these medicines in your bug out bag. You want to make sure that you have means to help yourself in those situations, things that can keep you on the track, moving forward to your bug out location as quickly as possible.

I hope that this article was helpful for you and you learned something. Feel free to comment in the section bellow if you have any other suggestions or if you have anything else to add.
