In any crisis event, you could be on your own for days… even weeks.

Hospitals could be impossible to get to. In fact, if we have a bioterrorism attack, plague, or viral outbreak, going to a hospital could be even more dangerous than staying home.

Your town could be without running water for a month or more.

No washing. No flushing toilets. No way to shower, clean dishes, or cleanse wounds.

Every year, poor sanitation kills more than 2 million people around the globe. We don’t see the effects of this very often in the United States, but in a real crisis, poor sanitation is deadly.

As a medical doctor, I can tell you that one of the most important things you must have in your home is a good supply of antibiotics.

Now… how do you get antibiotics when you’re not sick, and which ones should you keep on hand?

Let me explain…

In short, there are four (4) prescription drugs I strongly recommend you have at home.

One of these drugs is an often-overlooked antibiotic, called Doxycycline. Like all antibiotics, it treats bacterial infections.

But the reason you want to have Doxycycline is because it also treats “atypical” bacteria such as Rickettsia, which causes Rocky Mountain spotted fever and typhus.

I’m not sure how much you know about typhus, but it’s extremely deadly (without treatment) and is sometimes referred to as “camp fever” or “hospital fever” because it affects large populations living near one another in poor sanitary conditions.

Typhus epidemics have actually changed history.

Typhus killed 3 million Russians during WWI… and during one dark period in Britain, it killed 10% of the entire population.

The point is, in a city or town with no electricity or running water, and generally poor sanitary conditions, typhus and similar epidemic diseases could definitely strike again.

So Doxycycline is something you should definitely have around. And it’s a lot cheaper and easier to get than most people think. A 10-day generic for Doxycycline shouldn’t cost much more than $10 at any pharmacy.

And in addition to Doxycycline, you definitely should also have three other drugs on hand:

– Augmentin
– Ciprofloxin (“Cipro”)
– Bactrim (from the sulfa family).

These drugs can be used to treat things like pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections, skin problems, and dozens of other deadly infections… even exposure to the most common bioterrorism agent: anthrax.

Make sure you are not allergic to any these antibiotics before taking them.

Talk with your doctor now about how to get these drugs. He or she may  have free trial packs (like the popular “Z-Pac”) to share with you. Doctors will often prescribe Cipro and Bactrim DS (both as generics) for  people planning overseas trips.

You can get 60 pills (a one-month supply) of each at Wal-Mart for $20 or a 10-day supply for $10. Rite Aid sells generic Doxycycline for a similar price.

Store these drugs in a sealed freezer bag with desiccant (anti-moisture) packets inside. Place them in the freezer. Once thawed, they will last for six to 12 months when kept at room temperature.

    It’s best to build your immunities now so that you won’t ever need drugs if something terrible were to ever happen to the country or world and remove the option of medication.

    It’s survival of the fittest for a reason.

      A scarcity of medicine will rank right
      at the top along with food and water on
      the list of must haves, but hard to find
      necessities of life. Good advice.

        I think it is now, Doc. 🙂

        But Hey! Thank’s for the article. Good info!!! But why do I have to buy a subscription to a Financial Newsletter to get medical info?

        What kind of Doctor are you? As a financial “expert” I don’t take advice from other “financial experts”, just make my own analysis if their data looks helpful.

        And if I don’t take financial advice from other “financial experts”, why would I take it from a medical doctor or dentist?

        No disrespect intended, Doc, as Armand Hammer was a medical doctor too, and he didn’t do too badly for himself and his stockholders outside of his field of expertise. 🙂

        • Be informed says:

          Can’t say enough about Vitamin A in the beta carotene form that won;t destroy your liver like the fish based oil can. When fighting bacteria, anti-biotics are very important, and sometimes life savers. When fighting off a virus, that requires your own immune system and Vitamin A works with this. Vitamin C and B vitamins are also very important. One mineral highly overlooked is Zinc, but anything over 100 Mg. is not helpful. never forget old Elderberry. The silver collidor is very good and as people mention D3.

          The real ticket here is TOO AVOID catching it in the first place. This has to do with excellent sanitizing everything. Insect and vermin control. Washing your hands, be constantly hands aware. Plenty of anti-bacteria soap and BLEACH. make sure EVERYTHING that you eat that can have bacteria in it is COOKED or properly washed with something that will kill the bacteria. The water you drink also is so essential to be clean. The word here is PREVENTION so you reduce the chance of coming into contact with something that can make you ill.

            Do you, or anyone here have any solid experience with “colloidal silver”?


            • Be informed says:

              @ JustMe. The collodial silver I used once and it was the ONLY thing that helped me with this awful infection I had in the throat. Everything else failed, including antibiotics. I guess that would quality as solid experience with it.

              • Silver Surfer says:

                I make my own with my handy-dandy colloidal silver generator.
                I can make a gallon for pennies, versus the $20/oz. at the health food store.
                FYI- don’t store it in clear bottles! It reacts with light!
                (Think of photography dark rooms and film development).

              • Daytona Matt says:

                I make colloidal silver for our own use, both internally and externally. I’d recommend it in an instant. I’ve stated before, I watched a neighbor with massive open wounds on his legs splash mud and filth into these, then a night apply silvadine. Even being eaten alive by cancer these wounds stayed heathy and even healed some before he died! I was an instant user. Just do your research and keep it in a dark place!

                Thanks BI.

                I have read of it’s use as a disinfectant, but never knew anyone with experience with it.

              • JustMe says:

                Thanks Matt, will do.

            • slingshot says:

              Just Me.

              I have been using Colloidal silver for about 8 years. A teaspoon a day and have had no colds. I do suffer from Hay Fever and it does nothing against allergy’s. It heals covered cuts quickly. Does good to fight sore throats. I wash my hands frequently. Not compulsive disorder! Out and about I use a hankerchief to wipe my itchy eyes or runny nose. Can’t tell for sure what else it fights cause I have not caught anything. Knock Wood.

              • pissinwiththewind says:

                @ slingshot,

                The Hay Fever and some other type allergeries, can be controlled, and in my case, cured, by a simple daily intake of BEE Pollen.

                After working in landscaping/lawncare/firewood business, for about fifteen years during the eighties and early nineties, I developed bad allergies of the respiratory tract and had hayfever symptoms almost all the time. It became so bad that i finally decided i had to do something different, so i sold my business, and look out, Truck Driving School in ’93.

                Anyways, the problems persisted until I became injured and had to leave OTR trucking for a while and worked momentarily for a Bee Keeping Supply business near my home. I read about the positive results of taking “raw” Bee Pollen, so i started purchasing it where i worked, and eating a teaspoon full every morning. After a few weeks I noticed I had began to feel better and stopped sneezing every time the wind blew. So i began taking a tablespoon full with lunch also.
                A side effect that did seem to happen every time the wind blew, was a stiffey of the pee stick. Yep, it sure put lead in my pencil.

                Anyways, after a couple years, I was back on the road and started taking the tablet form. I have been taking the Bee Pollen Complex- 1000 mg. w/ Bee Propolis and Royal jelly for the past ten years. I do take Zinc fairly regular and occasionally Vitamin C if I haven’t been eating plenty of fruit/etc.

                I have been allergy free for over fifteen years and think i have had one common cold in the last ten years. The Klamath Lake Blue Green Algae that I take “religiously”, probably does as much good for keeping my immune system built up as everything else combined; but, I will never stop taking the Bee Pollen to keep my Hay Fever in check. the other positive side benefits of it are just a plus, especially at my age.

              • buttcrackofdoom says:

                @pissinwiththewind about that bee pollen….be careful. after only a couple days of eating bee pollen, i woke up one day flinging myself at the screen door! JK….couldn’t resist.

              • Anonymous says:

                slingshot and all allergy sufferers: Get a nettipot. fill it with some lukewarm (not hot)water and salt. stir it or just put your finger over the spout and shake it.
                Do put salt in it. Use your head on how much. The nettipot directions may tell you. I just shake some in there. One time I didn’t use enough and it didn’t work quite as well. In a real pinch of course you can just use warm water.
                I used to have bad allergies and certain times of year with ragweed and golden rod and pine trees, it acts up because it’s always blowing in the wind and gets in the house from open windows and sits in the carpets.

                The nettipot (CVS; Walgreens) looks like a small tea pot.
                Put the spout up your nose and gently pour. You don’t feel it. It’s gentle. It goes thru your sinus and down the back canal. Do this on both sides.

                The only way I can describe the spores, pollen etc that get up there ad stay there is this: I liken it to the fact that we have tiny pockets in the sinus that are open the opposite way in which stuff comes out our nose when we blow it. These tiny opening don’t get flushed when we blow our nose because they are facing the opposite direction.

                The pollen, dust etc get trapped on the way IN the nose.
                So to get it out it has to be flushed (gently). These tiny pockets are not deep. In fact they are very very shallow. So just the water being flushed through there moves it out and throught that back sinus canal and OUT.
                Bye Bye.

                If you do this right away when you feel stuffy it works faster. Otherwise about 4 or 5 times during the 1st day til you feel better.

                For complete success do it every day when you first get up and again just before bed.

                I have a friend who was always sick because she has so many kids (she caught everything from them). She swears by this thing and is faithful to doing it once as soon as she gets up in the morning and just before bed. She said she never gets sick anymore.

                I would say you won’t have the stuffy runny nose, less colds, etc.

                Also the heater in the car or dry heat anywhere will also activate your allergies. Stuffy nose? Use the nettipot. Not only will it flush out but also moistens your dry sinuses caused by heat and air conditioning and colds.

                I believe it’s less than $20. for a lifetime. It’s plastic. Can throw it in the car in case you need it at work or elsewhere. If it’s $10, get 2.

            • durango kidd says:

              The thing about using colloidal silver is that it is going to kill ALL of the bacteria in your gut, not just the bad ones. If you do use it, make sure you eat some yogurt to replace the good bacteria after the period of use.

              If you use it every day without fail, you do not give the useful colonies of bacteria a chance to regenerate, you might develop some resistance to it, or even turn blue over the long term, as some have done.

              If that happens you automatically become a member of “Blue Man Group”, but it should scare the shit out of the Zombies if you catch them by surprise! Just saying. 🙂

              • Prying Eyes says:

                If the Blue Man Group is not hiring, you can always be a Smurf.

              • Gods Creation says:

                “”” you might develop some resistance to it, or even turn blue over the long term, as some have done.”””

                You can’t build a resistance to silver, that’s ridiculous. It’s a mineral that attacks bateria and single cell virii.

                Nor has anyone EVER turned blue from taking properly made colloidal silver. A few turned blue back in the 40’s from pharma made silver salt products, and ONE idiot who turned himself blue by making and taking silver salts.

                You comment only shows that you are still susceptible to propaganda.

            • Gods Creation says:

              Colloidal silver not only kills ANY bacteria known, but it also kills any virus.

              Screw the pharma pills, as any corp made “bug” unleashed on the people will be resistant to it by design, whereas silver will kill any virus whether it is engineered or not.

              This article is for those who can’t afford a foot of silver .9999 fine silver rod and a couple of 9 volt batteries.

              Or for those dumb enough to buy Pharma pills instead of making a much smaller investment in becoming your own producer of the best antibiotic God has provided.

              And not only does it kill virii and bacteria in your body, it can make water safe to drink when there is no filtration available.

            • The_Dr_Is_Real_In7 says:

              I use and recommend my patients to get NutraSilver Plus. It is the only product that is 3600 ppm. Works great, and is the most cost-effective form out there. (You will pay $15-$25 for colloidal silver that is only 50ppm, so NutraSilver Plus can SAVE you a lot of $. One bottle can make 30 bottles of diluted formula.) It is extremely safe, and is fantastic in diluted form for sinus infections (using a Neti Pot or similar device), or directly on wounds or infections. I wouldn’t face a collapse situation without it!

          • Anonymous says:

            Whoa Whoa. Are you aware that there is no such thing as vitamin D3? D3 is a chemical and it is in fact a sterilization drug. They’ve been tricking everyone who doesn’t remember their 4th grade science class. Vit D comes from the sun and cannot be bottled. No D1,2,3 etc.
            You’ve (and we also) have been deceived by design.
            We are being sterilized by design and paying $$$$ to be sterilized. D3 is found in some pet foods, most of their treats. Read the ingredients. It is found in many milks and many grocery store foods and mixes. I know this will come as a shock to you and you will be in denial for awhile. Go check. Rotsa ruck.

            I know for a fact that D3 is a sterilization drug because the people that manufactured the dog food were angry they had to put this in the food and label it no less, so they revealed in parenthesis these words (D3 is a sterilization drug). Right after that they were forced to remove the parenthesis and what it said).
            Consequently I stopped purchasing a lot of foods.
            It’s a chemical….a sterilization chemical! Don’t think they would do that to us at this point in history?
            Why not? They did some sort of sterilization during WWII. Hitler did it to his own people.

              Bactrim is deadly to those allergic to. I strongly recommend doing research on it because most other countries have outlawed the drug due to side affects. It almost killed me and I ran a fever for 4 days over 100. I’m now allergic to all sulfra drugs.

            • JayJay says:

              I don’t really care what D3 is–it prevents my ‘3 in the morning’ muscle spasms in my legs and the only thing that does.

              • Anonymous says:

                JayJay: The B Vitamins are fo muscle spasms. Apparently you have a B vitamin deficiency. I used to have them. I used B Complex and it works quickly. Why?
                One of those B vitamins in the complex I was deficient in. You don’t have to stay on them forever either.
                B Complex are the series of B vitamins that complement each other so you get repaired in whichever B vitamin you are deficient in.

                If you happen to be an alcoholic then you may need to keep taking them. Alcohol depletes the body of nutrition, vitamins and minerals. If alcoholics dumped the booze and immediately got on vitamins, minerals, nutrients their body would not crave the booze any more.

                For instance, I crave chocolate. I like it for awhile but then the craving gets out of control. I take magnesium and the craving for chocolate is immediately gone.

                It’s usually a deficiency of something that causes, illnesses, spasms and cravings, etc.

                The key is to build up the immune system with the above mentioned.

              • durango kidd says:

                I take a multivitamin and mineral every day. I am a big guy so I take one about every 12 hours as each capsule represents the MINIMUM daily requirement for an average man. I also take garlic, pomegranate, ginger root, turmeric, cinnamon, and additional vitamin C as it is water soluble and will exit the body if not used.

                I snack on cashews and almonds, carrots, and broccoli. I eat potatoes with iodized salt, bananas, apples and other alkaline foods. I drink distilled water with lemon cuts in it, and coffee or tea with as little sugar as possible to eliminate the bitterness. If I have a burger I make sure its with onions, tomatoes, and ketchup. Ketchup is a vegetable ya know? If I eat chicken I make sure it’s honey BBQ wings. 🙂

                I NEVER have any cravings for soda, chocolate, cake, or any sweets. Apple pie is my worst snack. If you are eating the right foods with good nutrition and necessary supplements, you will not have a craving.

                That said, I have to remember to take some semi-sweet dark chocolate, dates, and honey from time to time. 🙂

            Hi, BI.
            Just an update on anti-bacterial soap: scientific/medical community beginning to think that anti-bacterial soap is increasing resistance in bacteria, a lot like antibiotic resistance. So, recommendations are to wash well with soap and water, which is a mechanical process that does not induce resistance.

      • Silver Surfer says:

        Silver kills over 600 different nasties.
        Colloidal and ionic silver can be made at home.
        There are several do-it-yourself colloidal silver generators on the market for relatively little cost.
        Consider it an investment…
        And if you are the only kid on the mountain making colloidal silver, you get to be the next ‘Medicine Man (or Woman)’.
        How’s that for a barterable skill?

        • Halcomb says:

          SS, this stuff is pure and dangerous quackery…..

          • RN in MT says:

            Love those folks that make sweeping statements without backup…there is a quotation in the book “Alcoholics Anonymous” 3rd Ed. p 570 attributed to Herbert Spencer [debatable] which reads:

            “There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance-that principle is contempt prior to investigation.”

          • Tomas says:

            Colloidal silver isn’t quackery. Do a bit of research. Been using that to treat infections like pink eye and steep throat for years. Also as a topical substitute for antibiotic creams. Tea tree oil (and oregano oil) are excellent disinfectants. My youngest son had something he picked up in the yard burrowing into his foot, chigger As i recall. Took him to doctor and they prescribed a course of antibiotics. When pressed the doc said it really just needed something to kill the bug. Put tea tree oil on the point of entry for a few days and it was gone. Antibiotics would have cleared it up too, but 10 days supply was a bit expensive, plus those “wonder drugs” kill ALL gut flora, diminishing the immune system for weeks/months afterwards. No downside to a more natural approach.

            FYI, think about this: why do some manufacturers embed silver as their antiseptic of choice in consumer products? Because it works and has zero negative side effects. 100 years ago, silver was THE antibiotic, until it became profitable to start making/selling the current crop. you cannot patent something from nature, so you make something up and denigrate the natural alternative. Good job drinking the big pharma kool-aide. Does it taste good?

            • Halcomb says:

              Tomas, you are the one who needs to do some research. Before the advent of antibiotics and modern medicine people died, that’s right they died from simple treatable diseases. It’s strange that your silver solution didn’t save a damn one of these folks….

            • Halcomb says:

              Everyone of you dunces that are against modern medicine will be lined up at the doctor’s office the minute you get really sick. I know your type and have read all of your quackery crap about how your natural remedies all work so well. But when the real illnesses and problems come you all always run to the nearest clinic, doctor, or hospital to get a big gulp of that big pharma kool aid because you know it is all that really works…..

      • slingshot says:


        There will be a shortage of medical supplies, besides medicines. You would be surprised how many people do not own a simple first aid kit. Do not know how to apply bandages. The amount of bandages used to keep the wounds clean and to reapply fresh ointments to heal and prevent infection. In the case of antibiotics internally the only solution is colloidal silver that can be replenished readily by yourself. I know of no drug interaction.
        Those who use the outdoors, far away from civilization, should have First Aid Training. In my hunting camp, I am the Field Medic. “Dr. Frankenstien” at first but they have come to trust me for the small injuries. I have Red Cross and Military Training. I want to thank all those who provided the Homeopathic side of medicine for I have copied them for future use.
        Of all the injuries to encounter the worst is a non bleeding puncture wound for it leaves infectious agents deep inside the wound and is almost impossible to completely clean. Tetnus and blood poisoning. Internal Antibiotics for this is a must have. Gangrene and Flesh eating microbes is serious. Know your medicines and all their possible uses. Simple aspirin for aches and pain,joint swelling, can be use for heart attacks and prevention of blood clots. Not to be use where bleeding is excessive or internal. It is a blood thinner.
        Snake bites, spider bites, scorpion sting, bee stings, ticks and chiggers can ruin your day. Extended periods without bathing or change of clothes can cause jock itch, athletes foot and butt hole irritation.
        Identify, Prevention and Treatment are important.
        Medical is one area that is not covered enough.

        But yeah Smokey, I’m with you on this one. When I. Get anthrax I plan to be helped by cipro etc. And not rely on my immune system training regimen.

    • David says:

      Yes being in the medical field. It is best to completely
      avoid anti biotic unless they are TRULEY NEEDED! because you will build immunity to them. Then they wont do any thing for you.

      • DumbDude says:

        YOU will build immunity to them? That doesn’t sound quite right.

        • Horse'sass says:

          Bacteria in your body will develop resistance (“immunity”) to antibiotics if you use them indiscriminantly, especially to treat conditions like flu, which are viral (not bacterial) and which will not respond to antibiotics.

          In other words, it is the bacteria who build “immunity” to antibiotics. The larger the infection, the more bacteria there are. The longer you treat with a given antibiotic, the greater the chance for the bacteria to become resistant. It is a numbers game.

          mathematically: # of bacteria x the length of exposure to antibiotics = the chance of the bacteria developing resistance.

          Having said that, it is important to have enough antibiotics on hand to complete a full course of treatment for a bacterial infection. Initially, the antibiotics will kill off (or prevent from multiplying)the susceptible bacteria. You may get a 99% eradication and think that the infection has been cured, and therefore tempted to stop the antibiotic early.

          But stopping an antibiotic early is the problem. The last 1% that have not been killed by the antibiotic are then left to resume the infection, and before long, the number of resistant bacteria have multiplied back to the original number, but this time all the bacteria are of the resistant type. So the second time around the infection is much more difficult to treat.

          In summary, be sure of whether you need to use antibiotics, and know with a high degree of probability the type of infection you have so you can match with the proper type of antibiotic, but if they are needed/indicated, be sure to follow through with a complete course of therapy to be sure every last bacteria has been reasonably eradicated.

          Often this involves making sure that any infected wound has been cleaned, irrigated, debrided (dead or infected tissue physically cut out with a scalpel or scissors)as thoroughly as possible as the baseline treatment, preferably leaving the wound open to drain (covered with sterile dressings of course), leaving antibiotics as complimentary treatment.

      Poor advise. While under the best of conditions, a healthy immune system will handle almost anything, the compromise of even the best fit people by constant chemtrails, environmental pollution, not to mention stress, lack of sanitation, disease during SHTF, and finally exposure to NBC will kill ANYONE. Proper medical supplies, and knowledge of protocol, not to mention the hand of God, are NECESSARY to survive what is coming. Get a clue.

      If you are allergic to penicillin these don’t matter anyway. Have the right vitimins and herbs to help you. Also MMS with help. If you are not allergic to penicillin go to the pet store and start buying the fish and water cleaners. These products are penicillian just sold under diferent names. Just saying, way cheaper than a script or setting off red flags to cvs or the feds for buying all these pills.

      You are right. The best gift you can give your children is let them get dirty and eat the occasional mouthful of mud. Start them out when they are knee-walkers and their immune system will thank you for the rest of their lives.

    While I agree doxycycline is very important. Unfortunately the price has skyrocketed due to a shortage.

  5. According to my research and medical personnel I’ve consulted, doxycycline can become toxic after the expiration date. The other antibiotics loose their potency but are still safe. Freezing increases their shelf life, but people should take note of how long they have, once thawed, before doxy expires!

    It would also be smart to print up detailed information on each drug like specific conditions they treat, suggested dosage amounts, and how to handle allergic reactions.

    • JayJay says:

      And during my research, I discovered amoxicillin affects illnesses the same as Cipro.

    • RickInOregon says:

      The devil is in the detail. To be told that fish antibiotics can be used and knowing how to use them is two different things. The literature for the proper dosage, frequency and durations of usage for humans doesn’t come with the fish antibiotics. I suggest to buy the antibiotics that you have the literature for.

      I have “The Survival Medicine Handbook” it has listed some of the fish antibiotics, what they are useful for and their dosage. I will not stock meds without knowing how to use them.

    • Gods Creation says:

      “””According to my research and medical personnel I’ve consulted, doxycycline can become toxic after the expiration date”””

      There was a problem with the way it was manufactured in the EARLY 60’s, but that was long ago corrected and it is now perfectly safe after the expiration date.

      • Fish have extremely sensitive systems. They require the same purity in their meds and humans.

        Other animal meds are NOT as pure. Canine and feline systems are heartier therefore their meds are allowed more impurities. Stay away from them for human consumption!

        • sixpack says:

      Who want the girls in the ads on this page?

    • stevesmitty79 says:

      Doxycycline is a Tetracycline. You can get Tetracycline powder at Tractor Supply under the brand name Durvet Duramycin. 10 grams per 6.4oz package. That’s (20) 500mg doses for $5.99. They also carry liquid Penicillins, which can be substituted for Amoxicillin, which is the primary ingredient in Augmentin. You can walk into TSC or any feed store and buy with stuff without a script. They won’t ask you a thing and if they do, just tell them you’re picking this up for your brother’s goat’s and that’s what the Vet told him. End of discussion. You can also pick up cheap hypodermic needles and syringes. Get a handful of 3ml syringes and some 20 or 21 gauge needles or something close. If you want a real resource, find a Vet or someone with animals who medically cares for them and ask them. Good luck.

      • Merree says:

        You need to be careful using tetracycline. It cannot be used in pregnancy and it can damage the teeth, especially in children.
        Also, most liquid antibiotics do not last for very long. They are much more stable if powdered or tablets.

  7. Socrates says:

    Some great tips, thanks Dr. Eifrig! Also not to be overlooked are simple things you can buy NOW without a prescription or loads of money. Like?

    – Isopropyl Rubbing alcohol. Kills germs on contact. Get it. Costco/Sams have it by the case for a good price. WalGreens has 91% Isopropyl which is even stronger.

    -Hand Sanitizer. Also a must have. Same as above.

    -Nitrile medical gloves. Avoid latex if possible since some are allergic and they are not as strong. GEt the right sizes for you hands or even one size larger.

    -Band-Aids, compresses, New Skin and Neosporin.
    -Distilled water
    -Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen. You can alternate taking them which is a good idea anyways so you don’t kill your liver.

    Others can chime in on the other major things I left out. ; )

        • hillbilly SC says:


          Just do what we do.

          I vacuum pack them and place in the bottom of the spare fridge. The army did a study awhile back and wanted to know how long the med’s they have will still be good. (look on the web for the results.) But some are still are useable for up to 15 years.

          But, like others have said, the tetracycline and doxy/any of the ‘cyclines do become toxic with time. I would keep them like I do for 18 to 24 months past the date and them replace them.

          I ordered mine from the vet supply websites. (Bunch of them, just check the prices and make sure they are from Thomas Lab’s.)

          Good luck…

    • I agree with Archivist. I have an 800 page prescription and over-the-counter book that has pics of all the drugs.

      I have compared the online fish antibiotics I get with the book and the only ones I got that did not match I trashed. They were from the far east.

      Best to buy pet antibiotics from a reputable source such as Thomas Labs.

    ….and then what? After your thawed 6-12 months, then what?

    This goes hand-in-hand with my conversation with my better half today. Topic was rye, wheat, oats, and could we recognize them if we needed to in plant form? BECAUSE at some point the stored provisions WILL run out, whether medicines or foods…and then what?

    • Farmer's Daughter says:

      That is why you buy non-gmo seed, plant it, harvest some grain, harvest some seed for the next planting. Never plant all your seed in case of drought, disease, etc. Practice growing and harvesting herbs for remedies. Research now and become knowledgable before it is too late. Tip 1: Peppermint is great for sinus pressure and headache. We use peppermint oil now and it works wonders!

      • InsanityISContagious says:

        But there’s more than just planting something you were lucky enough to still have — you could grow all the grains in the world and still not know why your kids are dying.

        There is storage of the grains and the inherent molds, etc., that go with them such as aflatoxin.

        “Aflatoxin is a fungal toxin that commonly contaminates maize and other types of crops during production, harvest, storage or processing. Exposure to aflatoxin is known to cause both chronic and acute hepatocellular injury. “…CDC

        Did you know corn can only be ingested fully and nutrients absorbed with the addition of lime (older cultures got it from ash) … otherwise you can have real problems.

        “Nixtamalization typically refers to a process for the preparation of maize (corn), or other grain, in which the grain is soaked and cooked in an alkaline solution, usually limewater, and hulled.”

        “In the United States, European settlers did not always adopt the nixtamalization process, except in the case of hominy grits, though maize became a staple among the poor of the southern states. This led to endemic pellagra in poor populations throughout the southern US in the early 20th century.[4] Fortification of wheat flour, the other staple food, essentially has eliminated this deficiency”

        AND what if you have no STORED seed left?

        Read an interesting article about a family called the Lykovs in Russia…lived in the Russian wilderness for 40 years…actually got down to their last 9 kernels of grain and had to decide whether to eat them or plant them. Children had never eaten bread. Google them — interesting read — that’s survival.

      @InsanityISContagious, I have a couple of herb boxes that are 3’x8′ and I have planted in them culinary and medicinal herbs. I also have medicinal herbs and local edible wild plants around my property that I’ve encouraged to grow. They look like weeds and they are not in a cultivated plot.

        • old guy says:

          I strongly recomend killing the cats. A house cat isn’t native to north America. they destroy a lot of birds. they also carry a lot of harmful diseases. Spinal meningitis is one of them. if someone wants a cat they need to keep it indoors. I kill every free roaming cat I can

            Maybe I should shoot the irresponsible owner and find the cats a decent home…

            • InsanityISContagious says:

              SP: We have had the same problem with neighborhood cats.

              But we figured out a simple solution: Cats are like bugs and other animals…give them one thing to focus on and they leave the rest of your stuff alone.

              Cats are trained to poop in a box (the NOT wild ones). so we left one BIG planter empty except for dirt and some of their poop in it (so they would be scented back to the right container) and that’s the one the neighborhood cats would use. Would occasionally trowel it out. It’s really no big deal at all….(no, we don’t own cats).

              • sixpack says:

                The problem with your idea is, feral cats don’t use litter boxes anymore. They don’t generally have a box.

                Secondly, cats are pretty finicky. Sometimes they won’t use the same place as other cats, they want their own private space. Cats are territorial.

                Thanks for the advice, but it’s pretty obvious that you don’t own cats.

    And to think that 70% of ALL Americans are presently on at least one prescription drug and 50% are on at least two, or more.

    They’re going to be in a heap of trouble when they can’t renew their prescriptions. I doubt that any of these four will help the majority of them.


    • AnAngryJew says:

      Exactly. Ditch the drugs. Learn to live without them.

      If you’ll die without them, I suppose it would be okay to stock up. But if you can live without them, it’s best to get rid of them.

      Learn herbal medicine, things that will be available when the SHTF. Learn the chemistry to synthesize certain products without an electrical grid or modern technology if necessary.

      We can’t rely on bottled products or pills forever, the supply WILL run out if the SHTF.

        Since 2005 I have right in front of me watched four people die. From natural causes and old age. Congenital heart failure was listed on the DC.
        But what we noticed all of them included was they were so flipping medicated it wasn’t funny. I’m talking about a gallon ziplock bag of meds. My dad was on so many with different times and schedules once a day, twice a day, with food, without food, by mouth, by injection, in the morning, noon, evening it was nuts.
        The load of meds seemed to be the bigger problem coupled with the critical scheduling.
        In all four cases hospice was attending. Most of those people were pretty good. They could look and give you an estimation nearly to the hour. However though, if you are down and you see a big bag of morphine drip hung besides you, your close.
        My wife and I have discussed this in depth and have agreed to avoid medication as long as possible. Once you start, it doesn’t seem to stop, and gets bigger, maybe for a reason.

          Also beware of the visiting nurses. They aren’t as helpful as appears on the surface. I know personally someone wasn’t dying fast enough to suit them and they tried to get me to withhold water and food from the dying person, saying to me, “why prolong her death, she’s dying anyway”? I said, THAT IS MURDER!
          I put them in their place verbally and I told them that God will decide the hour, the minute and the second she dies. Not you and not me. So they didn’t try that again. I had to watch them real close after that. I never left them alone with her where I was unable to see what they were doing at all times.
          Previously they put the dying person on hallucinogen pain meds. Luckily the dying person told me that she was seeing things and what she was seeing. I made the VISITING NURSE call and immediately change the meds to something with no hallucinogens. Then the patient stopped hallucinating (seeing people that weren’t there).

          The person I was caring for died in 2 weeks time (1 week after those blasted nurses wanted her to die) but it still wasn’t fast enough for the Visiting nurses and their associated Visiting nurses helpers. Why? They wanted to murder her but I was in the way. So they conspired to try to get me to commit the MURDER. I refused.

          You are very smart and intelligent to notice what is going on. Now you can look a little deeper and see what is really going on.

          Also, that drip might have something final in it if you catch my drift (you would never know). …to make it murder. These people may be put to sleep permanently with something added to that drip or injected into the line after the drip is set up. It can be done when you aren’t there.

          Hospices and Visiting Nurses need to be watched constantly. Beware!

          • Lake Monster says:

            I don’t trust hospitals. My mother lives across country from me, and had a heart attack with double bypass. After I had to go back home to care for my kids, they moved her into a recovery area that is like a nursing home facility to get her some PT and moving again.

            One night she called me crying and said that she had to go to the bathroom really bad and that when she called a nurse to help her get up to go, the nurse told her to go on ahead and pee the bed, and that she would come back and change her! Mom said she kept trying to call for another nurse and no one would respond to her. So she went on ahead and went, and waited for 2 hours for a nurse to respond to her and help change her out of her clothes and bedding.

            They were also withholding sufficient water from her even though her doctor said for her to drink to thirst.

            Needless to say I was on a plane and back out there going face to face with these people.

              I’ll always believe they banned me from seeing him, so he couldn’t tell me what they were doing anymore. I will always be3lieve they “helped” him just a little too much.

      • sixpack says:

        High blood pressure medications: You may not really need them.

        Here’s what happened to me.

        Without going into detail, suffice it to say that by the time I get to the Dr’s office, I’m highly stressed and have over-exerted myself physically to get there. Of course my blood pressure would be very high. Any normal person’s would be.

        They take your blood pressure long before it can settle down, and THAT is the reading the enter into your record. THAT is the reading they use to calculate your medications.

        I started getting suspicious when the blood pressure monitor I bought for home was getting significantly lower readings than the Dr’s office. They calibrated my unit for me, but the readings were still way off.

        I started asking for a second reading, right before I left the office. Every single time, the same person who took my first reading, immediately referred to my chart before retaking my blood pressure. The readings were very close to the first one, every single time.

        The next time I asked for a second reading, I waived a different aid into the room and asked her to retake my blood pressure. She bawked at first but I insisted. She started to go read my chart first, but I stopped her.

        I made her take my blood pressure the second time, without advanced knowledge of what the earlier reading had been. Guess what? It was a whole lot closer to the more normal readings I had gotten at home.

        I’m not implying dishonesty on the part of the aids. What I think happens is this:

        When you are trained to do something like taking vitals, and have done it so many times, it is assumed your readings are accurate. You are after all, a trained professional. I think for that reason, there is a subconscious urge to trust and then match your previous reading, because it has already been considered “accurate”.

        When a second person refers to the previous reading, the urge there is to not make them look like they are sloppy or incompetent and, to trust that their reading must be accurate. In both scenarios, the second reader tends to want to match to original, “correct” reading.

        Having taken possibly a thousand blood pressure readings myself, I can attest to you that it is pretty easy to make the readings match, without even realizing it. The reading comes down to deciding when the thumping of the heart beats has started at a certain audible level, and when it has tapered off to a certain audible level, and is decided to be no longer meaningfully audible.

        It’s all a matter of opinion, really. There is nothing scientific or constant about it, unless you’re using an automated, mechanical system.

        In conclusion, I made my doctor tell me how to ween myself off of the meds that I really don’t need. I only hope there hasn’t been any permanent damage after having been on them for over 3 years.

        LESSON: Beware of human error—both intentional and not.

        • figment says:

          i just had the same experience. after getting a high reading (i was psyched up for some “how many guns in your house?” questions from a new doctor)

          she said, “that was high. let’s do it again”. so of course, it was high again, because I was freaking out.

          so they had me come in a 1x a week for two weeks. each time it was lower (because I quit caffeine and carbs)
          still got a call that I am being “advised” to go on HBP meds even though my last reading was only a little high, even though my asthama inhaler says right on it that it causes BP spikes.

          really. no mention that maybe a little weight loss, less caffeine and some exercise might be beneficial? (maybe she was afraid of offending me?)

          got a home BP monitor.
          it notes that you should NOT be leaning back while taking it, not within 30 minutes of eating, drinking or exercising, and no crossed legs.

          remember this if anyone takes your BP again.

          • Merree says:

            Also never talk while getting your blood pressure taken. Talking causes it to rise. It really bothers me how many nurses will ask questions while taking blood pressures and this greatly increases the chance of a high reading.

          • Anonymous says:

            Figment: Excellent. Thank you.

            Also don’t drink coffee or hot chocolate or soda or chocolate candy, cakes etc. before going for your appointment. We went in with large cups of coffee because we knew it would be a long wait in the waiting room. The both of us, unrelated, had high blood pressure. We were suspicious and both refused meds. I figured out what happened and months later had it taken again elsewhere and it read normal numbers. The idiots that are supposed to be medically trained, don’t bother to ask what you’ve eaten or drank in the last 24 hours let alone the last 12 hours. They also don’t give you a list before an appt of what not to eat and drink so many hours before appointment where blood pressure is to be taken. Why? Because they don’t care so they can put you on indefinite meds that they get $$ for in pharma stocks, not to mention perks. Also, the newbies aren’t being taught to check all this out before administering the blood pressure test.

        • pissinwiththewind says:

          Something I have noticed and have been taking note on also when it comes to my issues of HBP at the Dr’s office.

          There are a lot of Big Phrama Reps in and out of the Dr’s offices, especially those that prescribe HBP meds.
          There are billions being made from the BP meds and thousands of free samples for you to try to prove it.

          It makes me wonder what other “kick-backs/fringe benefits” the Dr’s are getting. I am skeptical of all the reps floating in and out of the offices, especially when they are of the sexy looking female persuasion.

        You are right. Ditch the drugs. I am 70 and until recently had been on two prescriptions for years. The second one was to prevent a rapid heartbeat (sometimes up to 240 beats per minute which required visits to the ER) Then I read the precautions for the first drug, which was for a non-lethal condition. It said that long term use could result in a deficiency of Magnesium, which could in turn cause a rapid heartbeat.

        So I bought a bottle of magnesium and gradually stopped both prescriptions. I feel so much better and have lost 15 pounds to boot.

        Of course, some prescriptions are necessary, such as insulin. But in a SHTF situation where there is no electricity, there is not much hope for diabetics. My next-door neighbor lost 80 pounds and his doctor told him he could go off his insulin and heart medication.

        • sixpack says:

          What gets me about HBP is they try to fix it by giving you meds to slow down your heart beat. Your heart needs exercise to function property—either that or everyone who does a cardio workout is a fool. So your heart gets fat and flabby and you die.

          Doesn’t sound like a fair trade to me, but it seems to make perfect sense to big pharma doctors.

    • pissinwiththewind says:

      Probably half of those 70% could take a placebo pill and would never know the damn difference.

      • sixpack says:

        I found out my HBP was caused by thick blood—they call it “sticky blood”. Once I started taking natural blood thinners like vinegar and aloe vera, by blood thinned considerably. I started drinking more fluids because I was dehydrated, and that also causes blood to thicken.

        Thick blood is harder for your heart to pump. Research it for yourselves and see. This is a detail my doctor failed to recognize.

    vitamin C

    I’ve taken care of many nose, throat, and chest problems as well as “lady issues” when caught early. However, natural isn’t 100%. When you NEED antibiotics, take them and take the full dose. The abuse of antibiotics is what has messed up our systems and created super bugs!

    Also, fresh non-GMO vegetables and fruits. Be extremely healthy to begin with, and you’re already surviving all the $h!T that’s going on out there.

    • Hey that’s excellent advice.

    The age of antibiotics is growing to a close. If they stop working for you here is a great article with suggestions at the end.


    I can personally attest to colloidal/ionic silver as an alternative. To be used only in an emergency.

    • “To be used only in an emergency.”

      I make my own ionic silver solution and I drink a shot glass (1 ounce) every day. If I feel like a bug is coming on, I double that or just slug some straight out of the bottle. Seems to work for me.

      I also huff hydrogen peroxide every day. Maybe I’m starting to border on being a hypochondriac…lol.

      • california woman says:


        You definitely should ONLY use colloidal/ionic silver IN AN EMERGENCY if all else fails. Metal build up in the body can be devastating and very hard to eliminate. It can build up in the brain, bones, etc, just like mercury.
        Can cause insidious effects on your health and personality.

        No silver is completely safe but here is a safer brand

        or if you wish to make it yourself, this is a safer method

    @ RightWingMom. I have heard that with echinacea that after using it for about 3 weeks it actually starts to become a liability to your immune system. I use to take it and personally it made me feel very strange when taken with golden seal. Could just be an allergy with me. With Vitamin C you want to spread it out over the course of the day and not just take it all at once because like B vitamins it is water soluable and you eliminate the excess. I have found taking 500 MG every 1 and 1/2 hours to every 2 hours or so seems to have good results. I too don’t like dr. quack’s dope as your body don’t recognize synectics, but sometimes antibiotics are necessary like the case of pneumonic plague that is near 100% fatal without them.

  23. Satori says:

    tetracycline is one of those antibiotics that can become quite toxic as it ages

    “The breakdown products of tetracyclines are toxic and can cause Fanconi Syndrome, a potentially fatal disease affecting proximal tubular function in the nephrons of the kidney. Prescriptions of these drugs should be discarded once expired because they can cause hepatotoxicity.”


    self medication is something not to take lightly
    antibiotics can and do interact quite detrimentally
    with other prescription and non=prescription meds and herbals

    self medication should be an absolute last resort

      Old Guy,

      My mom in law almost died from the H1N1 flu shot. She works for the school district and they mandated her to get one. 24 hours after she took it, she was in the ICU with.. you guess it, H1N1 and she had a fever and was very sick.

      A month after she survived from the shot, her heart went into A-fib and stayed there. They have tried everything to correct it, but it won’t so they keep her on medication to control it now. My husband and I firmly believe H1N1 shot also did something to her heart.

      So what does she do once she goes back to work the following year? Gets her flu shot.

      My ten year old daughter has never had a vaccine or flu shot. Not one at all. We take a lot of criticism for this from family and doctors, but we will not allow her to have them. I had one doctor tell me that if my daughter dies from a disease it will be on my head.

      When all of the kids around my daughter are constantly sick and on some form of medicine practically all school year, she is not sick. And if she catches something, her natural immune system deals with it very quickly.

      I also avoid flu shots, and so does my husband.

  25. On the path says:

    To help build your immune system, make and take master tonic. ACV, cayenne, ginger, garlic, and a few other things. Google master tonic. It has helped my immune system tremendously.

  26. Good to have them antibiotics on hand in case of a tooth infection. Always seems to come on during time of crisis. Also don’t forget that whiskey or rum for that tooth. Alcohol will numb the nerve after gently swishing over the affected area, yeah it burns at first, but boy it helps when it gets in there to allow the aspirin or if you prefer aspirin powder in the affected area.

    • Colloidal silver (CS) used as a mouthwash will help with the tooth problems, bleeding gums, bad breath, etc. Swirl it around for a couple of minutes to let it work. You can either swallow it at that point or spit it out. Leaves a metallic taste in your mouth but not too bad. There are lots of plans on the Internet on making your own CS generator, just need distilled water, silver and a DC source. I’ve also used CS for ear aches and sore throats. Sprayed it on my Swiss Chard to kill some type of mold/fungus that was eating it, stopped it cold. Several colleges and labs are now publishing peer-reviewed studies showing beneficial uses of CS. A CS generator should be on everyone’s SHTF list.

      • sixpack says:

        I get cheap mouthwash and add a cap full of hydrogen peroxide to it. Swish and spit as usual. Repeat.

I suffer from common ailments and the elimination of wheat from my diet has helped immensely and my husband has scleroderma and has been wheat free for 3 weeks and his symptoms have eased up. Skin losening, skin ulcers healing and almost no more itching.

    It has led to more exploration and recommend another book about wheat called “Grain Brain”. I think we are all slowly getting poisoned by our government

    Natural antibiotics? Onions, garlic, colloidal silver for starters. Arthritis, inflammation, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s , go with curcumin from tumeric, D-3, Omega 3 from fish oil, and newly pressed olive oil. Many, many effective natural remedies.

    2nd, Doxycycline is a good antibiotic, but once it has expired, it can be toxic and kill you!

    You want antibiotics/medicines that will have a long shelf life. Even after expiration, most antibiotics will keep their values, even for 10 years, but some of them won’t and Doxycycline is one of them.

    Many other antibiotics will do the job that the 2 above will do. Do your research and you will see.

          I don’t store cipro.

          Any very powerful antibiotic will do that to you, so you really must follow up with a probiotic supplement. When I was put on a quinolone antibiotic for a suspected sinus infection I ended up with thrush (yeast infection of the mouth). 2 probiotic supplements a day and yogurt cleared it up quickly. I use this routine anytime I go on antibiotics. Another useful precaution is to go sugar free and as low carb as possible as you are re-establishing your good bacteria to avoid candidiasis.

          AVOID ALL OF THE PROBLEMS AND DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH! Do not take anyone’s word for it, your situation might be different than theirs. LOOK IT UP YOURSELF. Don’t blame others for making SUGGESTIONS.

          I agree that cipro can be dangerous, but, itmis the antibiotic needed for anthrax

    • Merree says:

      I think Cipro is good to have stored because it can fight Anthrax and several other infections that are resistant to other treatments. However it has fluorine as part of its chemical makeup and this makes it dangerous to use unless absolutely necessary. It can cause tendons to rupture and other problems and it interacts with other common medicines, It is definitely one to use with caution/

        I had to take Cipro for a Prostate infection a few years back for about 2 months, fuuucked me up…sore as hell all the time, and it lingered for months afterwards..Im as strong as an ox and can take a lot of pain..but months and months of being sore all the time takes its toll, not to mention muscle loss, and weakness due to this drug

        be very careful with it, use it only if necessary, if other antibiotics will do the job I suggest you try them first

        Yes it killed the infection, but I really wonder what price I paid for it.

    The camping survival site advertised on the SHTF site here sells all kinds of fish antibiotics which are exactly the same as your doctor gives. Iam also a big fan of colloidal silver as it kills all bad pathogens including MERSA.

    Y’all should look into the taking of an Usnea extract. Usnea grows on all the dead pine trees around here. It has been used for centuries by Native American Indians. Is is edible and when soaked in a high proof alcohol can be made into a tincture. It’s so useful that even some of the big pharma companies use the the extract in many of their medicines. Antibiotics attack both good and bad bacteria in the body. Usnea attacks only the pathogens in the body. Nature provides us with many cures to the many ailments which hurt mankind.

  42. I wonder why you are mad and frustrated. Is that your signature legislative achievement is about to crash and burn. Maybe it’s your fellow liberals are jumping ship realizing they are not going to get re-elected if they follow you into political oblivion. What about the people that have lost their insurance policies because of your fucked up vision?

    In your speech today you said you fumbled the ball and everything is on you. That statement goes to show how out of touch you are with reality. Millions of people losing their health insurance is not a fumble it’s fatal mistake.

    All of which begs the real question ‘ WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING “

    Most doctors will not just give out a script so you can hoard antibiotics. I have asked two different ones, who looked at me like I had two heads. I even tried lying, and saying I needed to keep them aside in case I get a sinus infection while traveling. They are not so fast to hand over the goods anymore. It would be wonderful to find me a doctor that has the mind of a prepper. So I found out about how I can get them without the help of a doctor and have found the products to be genuine. The real deal. I have tested some of the antibiotics from aquatic p. on myself and they work just as good as the ones from a regular people pharmacy.

    As much as I trust my herbs and alternative ways, I also want to keep some Pen VK, Clindamycin, Zithromax, Keflex, Cipro, Doxy, and Flagyl put away. I do not want to get into a situation where my herbs won’t touch a tooth abscess, and have the thing go septic. A tooth abscess can kill you if the bacteria gets out of hand. I have heard of people dying from untreated abscesses so I want to be on the safe side. Same goes for strep throat.

    I do keep aside goldenseal, garlic, powdered ascorbic acid, echinacea, cinnamon, clove, oil of oregano, etc. I have cured a tooth infection with garlic and oil of oregano together. I have killed many strep throats with oil of oregano. For colds, if you get it at the beginning, raw garlic and oil of oregano can knock it out in a day or so.

    There is a very easy and legal way to get just about every anti-biotic you need. Simply go to a pet supply store & buy it. It is exactly the same drugs for humans that are used for pets. No prescriptions needed. I’ve bought quite a bit for my horses, dogs, cows, fish and birds to keep them healthy.

    I wouldn’t take any drugs. I think this is just a commercial to sell things you don’t need.

    I forgot to say that when using the nettipot when you pour it up your nose (thru sinuses), it’s ok if the water falls back out your nostrils rather than going down the back canal. It’s still getting flushed.

    It would help if this site had a nice little edit button. Now this won’t be able to come out near my original post.

    I can attest to the Z Pack…..just got over pneumonia last week, and I was prescribed the Z Pack, a 5 day supply of Azithromycin.
    Took 2 pills first day, one pill each of next 4 days. Worked like a charm…..

  48. CWinOR says:

    I totally agree with the Doc, however, before anyone goes out and buys Cipro- PLEASE research it! It has been Black Labeled by the FDA, which means it is only SUPPOSED to be used ONLY for lifesaving purposes because it is DANGEROUS. As many as 40% of people who have taken it have had some level of allergic reaction to it. It is know to leave people with a condition known as “Spontaneous Tendon Rupture”, it is known to affect your DNA (but they don’t know the extent yet). It nearly killed me in ’97. It chemically burnt the skin off my hands and feet, gave me temporary (3-4 months) Rheumatoid Arthritis,screwed up my nail beds and left my finger nails pitted and then eventually I experienced a spontaneous rupture of my Achilles Tendon. Only take this crap if you’ll die without it! Everything I’ve listed is WELL documented about it and easy to find.

      “The warning applies to drugs of the fluoroquinolone class, including Cipro, Cipro XR, Proquin XR, Levaquin, Floxin, Noroxin, Avelox, Factive, and marketed generics.”


      A co-worker had a heart arrhythmia develop after taking azithromycin last winter (nasty bacteria went around our office and I was put on doxy for the same thing)- antibiotics are administered under medical supervision for a reason, but be sure to keep an eye on yourself as well. A lot of doctors aren’t as well versed in side effects as they should be.

    I say stay out of the doctors office. Bottom line they are trained to medicate not heal unless it is something acute. Treat your bodies well. Stay away from processed, refined sugary foods. Eat whole foods. Sleep and get some exercise

    the key antibiotic to take when a deer tick has chewed their way into you, I’ve taken many and keep a supply on hand.

  51. This is not helpful to seniors who cannot trust their doctors because of Obamacare. They are already trying to involve seniors who own their own property with government run social workers to “help” them. I don’t see a doctor unless I am sick, which is not very often since I am into natural medicine. My bluecross/medicare turned my name in to my advocate social services because I have not seen my doctor in over a year and a half. They wrote a letter to tell me that “at no cost to me” they will appoint me an advocate to help me make an appointment with my doctor. What the HELL. I changed my phone number so they cannot call me, and one really don’t want to come out here.

  52. Sigi says:

    Has the author purchased Doxy lately? There was a shortage when the we both were sick this winter- it cost about $75 each at Wal-Mart and would have been $90 elsewhere. Also, if anyone is allergic to amoxicillin, Augmentin is that plus prednisone.

  53. Merree says:

    Augmentin does not have prednisone in it. It is amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid- a compound to boost (thus its name “augment-in”) the anti bacterial properties of the antibiotic.
    Doxycycline has had intermittent shortages where the price jumps really high, then it goes back down to a very economical price.

  54. Herb says:

    Do not overlook Herbs. That is where we got the first antibiotics from. Herbs can also be a great source of nutrition as well. Take some time, do some reading and build some skill.

  55. Nimrod Hunter says:

    Drug-resistant “superbugs” represent one of the gravest threats in the history of medicine, leading experts have warned.

    Routine operations could become deadly “in the very near future” as bacteria evolve to resist the drugs we use to combat them. This process could erase a century of medical advances, say government doctors in a special editorial in The Lancet health journal.

    Although the looming threat of antibiotic, or anti-microbial, resistance has been known about for years, the new warning reflects growing concern that the NHS and other national health systems, already under pressure from ageing populations, will struggle to cope with the rising cost of caring for people in the “post-antibiotic era”.
