Preparing a property “sickness kit,” beyond a basic first aid kit, for a survival situation can be a challenge.
This is particularly true if you are talking about antibiotics.
Not only are antibiotics, difficult to procure without a prescription in the USA, they also have a shelf life, so a robust inventory management system is needed to track what might be expiring and replace it.
While antibiotics tend to work past their self-life date, they do lose potency, which, if you are battling a severe infection can actually do more harm than good.
That means while you should try and build a sickness kit, you must also place an emphasis on prevention and utilizing natural antibiotics when possible.
On the next page, we cover some common, natural substances that have antibiotic properties or help boost the immune system.
