It’s estimated that about 66% of the U.S. population takes one or more prescription drugs. Of those who don’t take prescriptions, many have had to rely on medical care in the last few years.
The truth is, we all rely on our medical system to survive. Despite some of the flaws of the system, it has successfully eliminated many diseases and improved outcomes for millions of people.
This wasn’t always the case, as you know. A mere 100 years ago, a viral pandemic could take out entire communities in a matter of weeks. A simple infection could turn deadly in a matter of days.
Today, we view colds and infections as minor inconveniences that can be fixed with one visit to a doctor.
In the last few years, we got to see first-hand how fragile our medical system really is. A pandemic sweeping through the world has put our hospitals on the brink of collapse more than once.
We’ve also seen what happens in areas hit by natural disasters, where medical care becomes unavailable for several days and people start dying from easily-treatable conditions.
All of this is to say, if SHTF, a lot of common diseases can become deadly again. What will happen to you if medical care becomes unavailable? What do you need to watch out for if antibiotics, surgery, and IVs are out of reach?
In this post, I want to discuss the most common deadly diseases we might face after SHTF.
These have the potential to kill you without proper medical care, and many of them will become more common once access to clean water, shelter, and food becomes unavailable.
And yet, with access to medical care, we’ve mostly forgotten just how deadly they can be.
Pneumonia is a common infection that inflames the air sacs in the lungs, often causing fluid to build up inside of them. It can be caused by a variety of organisms, including bacteria, fungi, and viruses.
Pneumonia can happen as a result of untreated colds or flu, or exposure to other people with pneumonia.
You’ll know you likely have pneumonia if you have difficulty beathing, you’re coughing up phlegm, you have a fever, and a pain in your chest.

We’re used to thinking of pneumonia as something that’s only dangerous in old people and young kids, but that’s not always the case. Today, a healthy young person can get a cycle of antibiotics if their pneumonia gets serious, but if SHTF, this may not be an option.
Untreated pneumonia can lead to a slow and painful death. It can cause bacteria to enter your bloodstream and infect other organs, causing organ failure and eventual death.
It can also result in other complications such as lung abscesses, fluid around the chest cavity, and loss of oxygen, all of which normally require a stay in the hospital.
Without an adequate medical system, pneumonia is a nightmare to have. It’s best to avoid it before it ever happens, which is why prevention is so important when things start to collapse.
Preventing pneumonia means taking colds and flu very seriously, and treating them with plenty of rest, fluids, and natural remedies.
Tetanus is another disease that we don’t usually worry about these days.
Many of us have had tetanus shots, and we know to go to the hospital after stepping on a rusty nail. Most of us have never had to do this because our modern world is built to prevent things like tetanus.
But in a SHTF scenario, tetanus is actually very likely. And very deadly.
Tetanus comes from a toxin-producing bacterium called Clostridium tetani that lives in dirt, animal feces, and dust – not just rusty nails. You may become exposed to a lot more dirt and animal droppings in a survival scenario.
If you receive a deep wound and some Clostridium tetani bacteria end up in there, they become activated and release their toxin into your nervous system.
Symptoms of tetanus show up 3-12 days after the bacteria get into your system. You might experience worsening symptoms of lockjaw, painful muscle spasms around your face and neck, and difficulty swallowing.
If left untreated, the muscular issues spread to the rest of your body and cause painful seizures during which your whole body goes rigid for several minutes. As the disease progresses, you also develop a fever, blood pressure spikes, and extreme sweating.
If you’ve been vaccinated against tetanus within the last 10 years and you’ve properly cleaned your wound with alcohol or an antiseptic – you have a chance of survival.

However, most cases require special care at the hospital. Even with medical care, 1-2 in 10 people end up dying from tetanus.
As the disease progresses, the nerve damage and severe spasms can cause your bones to break, trigger bacterial infections throughout the body, and eventually cause you to stop breathing. It’s a brutal way to go.
The best ways to prevent tetanus is to be vaccinated against it, always carry an antiseptic on you, and wear protective gear or thick clothing out in the wild.
Urinary Tract Infections are super common, and many of us have had one or know someone who has had one in their life.
They are unpleasant, but most of them clear up within a week, thanks to a visit to the doctor and an antibiotic prescription.
But what happens if you can’t get access to antibiotics? The infection isn’t actually deadly in itself, but the body’s natural response when threatened by such disease can have fatal consequences.
⇒ An Ingenious Way To Stockpile Prescription Medicines At Home Before SHTF
An untreated urinary tract infection spreads from the bladder to other parts of the urinary tract – including the kidneys. Having a kidney infection is much more serious because it can lead to kidney failure and spread the infection to the rest of your blood.
I’m sure you’re starting to see a trend here – untreated infections eventually make their way into your blood, leading to sepsis, which is deadly.
UTIs are caused by bacteria getting into the urethra and growing inside of the bladder and other areas of the urinary tract.
Under normal, clean conditions, these infections are still common among women and older men, but under unsanitary conditions that are likely to happen during a SHTF scenario, they can affect everyone.
Having a stronger immune system and drinking a lot of water and cranberry juice at the first sign of infection might save you. But once it spreads to your kidneys – your best bet is to get your hands on antibiotics.
E.Coli is another bacteria many of us have heard of, but don’t have to think about often. It lives in the intestines of healthy people and animals but can become deadly if it makes its way into your food.
Thanks to modern plumbing and hygiene practices, this doesn’t happen much.
You’ve probably heard of a few E.Coli outbreaks here and there in the last few years. These usually happen when cow manure gets onto produce and the produce isn’t properly washed prior to eating. Thankfully, most cases of E.Coli can be treated at the hospital.
That being said, in a survival situation E.Coli can become a real concern. Think of all the ways this bacterium can make it into your food or water. Any groundwater could potentially be contaminated with E.Coli from animals.

Any food can be contaminated if not handled with clean hands. Any foraged foods can be contaminated if they’re not washed. Things can become contaminated if people aren’t taking safe “bathroom” measures. The list could go on.
While not always deadly, some strains of E.Coli can cause dehydration, infection, and death.
The best way to avoid E.Coli is through prevention. Make sure to have a way to purify all drinking water, wash your hands when handling food, and make sure people know how to safely dispose of their waste.
Prevention Is Key
As you can see, some seemingly innocuous illnesses can become deadly without proper medical treatment. I’ve listed some of the most common survival diseases above, but frankly, the list could go on.
Any kind of infection can become deadly if you let the germs keep spreading. Serious injuries can lead to an infection. Any contaminated food or water carries the potential to be infectious.
We haven’t even mentioned chronic health issues like diabetes or heart disease. In a SHTF scenario, you likely won’t have access to medications and treatments that keep your illness at bay. Diabetes and heart disease can both be deadly too, which is easy to forget when we see so many people living with them for decades.
The truth is, without access to medical care, your best chances of survival are through prevention.
Start practicing a healthy lifestyle now. Lose the extra weight, begin an exercise routine, and eat a diet that will support your immune system.
Stock up on antibiotics and antiseptics in your first-aid kit. These are the things you’ll need to fight off infections when you do get them.
Learn about herbal medicine. There are plants out there that can heal you. Some of them have antibiotic properties (garlic, ginger, echinacea, etc.) that you can rely in a pinch.
Take hygiene seriously in a survival situation. Keeping your water and food clean is going to be one of the most important things for your health.
Treat any small colds and cuts right away. Treat them seriously. If you catch them early enough, it can save your life.

neat the “anti free speech here is on par with the typical liberial media”
You sound vaccinated!
It is so funny to see the biggest troll ever complain about anti-free speech. The garbage you regularly post is proof that this site does have free speech, unlike many others.
So the article lacks the “how antibodics to use…. but go figure”
Surpised they don’t tell you take a c19 vaccine and wear triple masks
Posting drunk again Raven Prepper Expert (and many other names)?
A light article for a difficult and multifaceted set of Problems, Yes Plural. As a medic for decades, I have a fairly massive library of well read books about modern and old school-herbal medicines. This subject’s aim as far as I can see it to make people aware they need to start prepping for diseases.
You’ve never been a doctor aside from perhaps that send 9.99 and a stamped self-addressed envelope “religious Dr program” at best otherwise you’re a nasty mouthed fraud.
Your nasty comments reduce the ability of otherwise interested les prepared to learn something useful. But since this site is the only place you can spew your gall at people you’ll never leave.
For urinary tract infections you can take a few grains of hexamethylene tetra-amine (military heat tablet for cooking food) dissolved in water. If you have to make it, mix ammonia water with formaldehyde and collect the condensation product of the reaction. In a SHTF world even ammonia and formaldehyde could be manufactured with a minimal cowboy engineered chemistry set.
I am not sure I’d try that heat tablet idea.
What should be listed here…. Would be the (industrial sabatoge of food plants ) and now that its switched to knocking out transformers and sub stations . But lets have a dozen articles about EMP and sell people the joke of a nation the emp shield blanket.
Stock up on pro-biotics. And local honey
As a licensed RN, this article is appreciated for its simplicity and truth. The vast majority of Americans are functionally illiterate and require baby steps in reasoning and being motivated to take responsibility for their own health. The message was not intended to be exhaustive but did provide links for further research which then always contain further links. If only a few folks out there wake up to the potential seriousness of illnesses/diseases in a SHTF scenario that many hardly give a second thought today, mission accomplished.
As a further motivator, I encourage folks to begin thinking that the S has already HTF. Hospitals are incredibly dangerous places to go. Hospital acquired illnesses are, many times, far worse than what you went in for. Their policies of prevention and/or treatment, dictated by government whose agenda supports reducing the population can be fatal when the original problem was not. Take your health seriously and learn to take care of yourself!!!
One more thought … if you MUST go into a hospital, HAVE SOMEONE REMAIN WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES. You must have a close personal friend, family member, advocate to watch out for you. If the hospital forbids “visitors” as my local hospital did during the “plandemic”, DO NOT GO THERE.
People do not get their proper meds at the right time, pain meds are marked as given but actually stolen by nurses, people lie in their own filth for days, they are secretly given a “vaccine” when they clearly refused it. Your advocate must not be intimidated or afraid to be hyper vigilant and in their face if necessary. Use your camera to document poor care!
Bottom line – do everything possible to stay out of the medical system altogether.
As a RN, my goal is safe care. I insist that labels for labs or vax (No C crap) are verified by recipient. Extra eyeballs are helpful. I suggest everyone getting labs or meds do the same. Those who become offended… fool me once.
Sigh.Micheal I’d so hoped you wouldn’t feed the troll.
The only way to ride the site of vermin is to ban him/her/it and we know that will never happen. The owners have NO BALLS.
Lol I guess I’m busted:)
I suspect the bigger issue is that banning him will have little effect because he can just set up a new username/clear his cache/reset his IP and come again.
Folks banning comments is part of the problem? Freedom of speech is something we should all have!!! I could give a rip what someone says? But l also have a right to speak my mine too! The problem today is if you didn’t push the same propaganda that is push on all the media platforms, then they band you? So don’t play into their hands and go along with banning speech, just because you don’t like what they say? Stand tall and proud and speak you mine too!!! Folks we have a lot of pain and hardship coming at us all, like It or not , It’s coming!!! Don’t lose site of the whole forest for the trees so to speak? God have mercy on us all we are going to need his grace and mercy before this thing is over!!!! Stay strong and alert and step with a purpose!!!!!
We all get it your the same two people
Real world disasters have shown cholera to be the number one disease threat, spread by a breakdown in sanitation and highly, often fatal where medical care has also collapsed.
You can get good long term protection from tetanus and pneumonia by getting vaccinated, tetanus is given as a combination of vaccines including whooping cough and diptheria, 2 other diseases to fear after SHTF. Overuse of antibiotics is a probable cause of many UTIs, another good reason to stay away from Doctors.
American hospitals are worse and worse, standards for basic nursing certification have never been high, and Drs. are restricted to useless 2-3 minute drive bys with patients. You absolutely need a loved one who can function as your full time advocate in a hospital. Although a low income friend of mine dying from heart failure who has unusually good insurance ended up getting admitted to a rich person’s boutique cardiac hospital where he had a private room and was attended closely by brilliant and highly trained nurses and Drs. who saved his life. Money talks.
My experience as a country boy is that all horses are well hung, so what’s the big deal?
Dear ArsePoetica, You are absolutely correct about Cholera being a leading issue and killer when sanitation and/or medical care breaks down. You’re also correct about preventative vaccines against pneumonia and tetanus (with whooping cough and diptheria) – but I would add a caveat – make sure that it is an old-fashioned sort of vaccine and get it sooner rather than later. I cannot recommend any mRNA based injections or vaccines that contain nanoparticles. How do you know if they contain these things? Not easy. Research, research, research. Ask to look at the consumer insert before accepting. Get it sooner than later while those vaccines have not been converted to more “contemporary” ingredients. You are also so very accurate that there are still hospitals that provide amazingly good care with excellent MD, nursing and aide staffing. My local hospital recently discovered that an RN was using controlled substances illegally. They told her she must stop or leave. There should have been no choice. She should have been fired immediately. It was kept a closely guarded secret by the administration and it was not reported to the state Board of Nursing which is required. There are a few good hospitals out there, but patients must beware. The system is overall corrupt.
And, country boy, this country girl can attest – all intact male horses are well-hung! LOL
There will be outbreaks of Prion like diseases in a true shtf situation as rampant cannibalism will have taken hold in many areas. Many so called vaccinated people have these prions in their brains and spinal columns. As well as other organic fibrous growths that appear to be parasitic. This will lead to many experiencing dementia/rabies like symptoms. Thus, the flesh of pure bloods will be highly sought after. Those folks will be tortured and eaten from the toes up in a slow manner.
The over the counter supplement D-Mannose will cure most UTIs. You should always have some.
Apparently, there are a lot of right-wing Republican nuts out there that do not appreciate the reality that vaccines work, masks work, and stupid people are more likely to die than intelligent people. Of course, stupid people tend to infect the smart people who follow things called “science” and actual “statistics.”
This, of course, does not address the fact all these emails are marketing. Understandably, that is how you make money. Without that, you cannot do your email posts.
Nor does it address whether or not the information is accurate. That is a different issue.
Just a note, I would think that diabetes would be at the top of that list. No insulin = dead people.
Gary, If your mRNA vaccines work and masks work, then how do the “stupid” people (that know this is not true) infect the so-called “smart” people? Seriously. And, by the way, if you are vaccinated … say, against Covid-19 … then why do you need masks as all? Masks, that don’t work. The masks that most every single person uses has holes that are 10 TIMES the size of the virus. But that shouldn’t bother you because you are vaccinated and, no doubt, boostered. Puleeeeze DO follow the science for once. Your willingness to state that the so-called smart people take the vaccine, wear the masks, and are at risk of being infected is self-incriminatory and makes it so incredibly clear how brain-washed and sadly lacking in the ability to think you are. I wish you the best. Please get help.
Jeannie, nice to virtually meet another RN. 🤗 Cannot wait to retire.
Masks don’t work and, in fact, are causing asthma exacerbation and other problems from inhaled particles that rub off. Not to mention that what we still wear are from a big red country. I zero trust in the “fabric” content and dye. No telling what chems are used to further degrade health.
Find another site. Us right wing, intelligent people don’t need ignorant people such as yourself. So do us all a favor.
Lol you think your side cares about you.
Voting is dead and Republicans are just liberals
I can answer to some of this, living in a unique experiment during the pandemic – Western Australia.
Re masks: Before masks the number of infections were rising and rising. Masks on… infections dropped. During a time when COVID cases and their household members had to spread – so the impact on community contact spread was immediately visible. My son’s school had a nearly a hundred staff and students out eventually with it, so they mandated masks in classrooms and bang! Numbers dropped within a week, down into the 10s – and almost all absent/not attending. Dramatic turn around. Masks clearly work.
Vaccines… WA didn’t face down Omicron and widespread community transmission until about 93% of the *adult population was vaccinated. Our hospitals never became overwhelmed, there was medication and treatment for everyone who needed it, our death rate was incredibly low (and if you cut out the over 70s deaths it has been world leading low – death by COVID for a person under about 65 is possible but rare). Those who needed health care got it because the majority of the population was vaccinated and didn’t need to come into hospital unwell. Over the couple of years we had several lockdowns and cancellations of elective surgery, and to be frank our hospital system is rather overloaded on a good day pre COVID anyway… so there’s been some impacts but nothing like we saw out of the US, UK or other places. There’s no freezer trucks acting as temporary morgues. There’s no mass COVID centres in gymnasiums. There’s a tent outside every hospital which was used to hold people while they did a RAT test before entering, visitors in hospitals were banned (and now are still restricted in high risk areas), most specialist appointments went to telehealth, but generally things were ok. I managed to get one son orthodontic surgery, the other eye surgery, my own surgery etc all done, none of us have had COVID at all, and life has been grand. For most of the pandemic we’ve been sipping lattes on the street side cafe tables.
Do I think vaccines should be mandatory? No! Do I think people should be held accountable in a variety of ways to their community conscience and encouraged to protect each other through vaccine? Yes! (Limit social finance programs that subsidise or compensate for isolation periods/sick leave to those who are vaccinated maybe?) Do I like that the majority of vaccines out there are mRNA? No!!! Do I think there should be (have been!) more options in vaccines? Absolutely. Do I think we’ll head to a mass legal event out of the mRNA? Yes. Do I think (normal, healthy) children should have been vaccinated? Not with mRNA, not for COVID. Do I think we knew what we were doing? Nope, we (humanity) were just reacting to an imminent threat with as much speed and ferocity as we could in the moment.
Sandgroper. Masks don’t work. An N95 properly worn and sealed may work to prevent .5 micron particles getting through. Viruses are even smaller. But cloth masks& blue surgical masks, don’t work at all. Well they might prevent you from being directly sneezed or coughed on. It’s a psychological benefit. BUT don’t overlook the power of a psychological benefit. What you believe is what you experience. IF you believe you are now safe, you will be less likely to catch something because your emotions will support your immune response. Your body will literally BE stronger because YOU BELIEVE you are protected. Belief is a powerful thing!
The C19 vax are poison, pure and simple. They do nothing to prevent C19 or the spread of it. Read the CDC website thoroughly. ANY benefit is again psychological. But unfortunately the damage the shots cause is way beyond any benefit that the psychological belief can provide. mRNA is instructing YOUR cells to reproduce as something other than your cells. Unfortunately there is no “turn off” of this instruction. It can continue through generation after generation of cells.
The spike proteins. They do not stay attached to the cells after your cells were instructed to grow them and can break off and be carried in the blood to other areas. They have a propensity for the lungs, ovaries, testicles. Hmmmm you might say that someone created a vax to sterilize humans! In fact statistics show that there is a HUGE percentage increase in sterility in young women and men since 2021. Miscarriages are also up drastically since the shots. So are cancers in all ages as well as heart attacks, stroke and myocarditis in YOUNG, formerly healthy people. Young world class athletes are dropping dead on the field from heart attacks caused by myocarditis.
And.. I haven’t even mentioned the toxins in the actual syringe itself. They are deadly and illness causing too.
You should check out the statistics on the injuries to the U.S. military. They were forced to get the shots. A large percentage are sick, now have chronic conditions and deadly heart conditions. Our military is no longer in fighting shape.
There are many sources to learn about the “effects” of the c19 shots. You have to be a sleuth to find them, but they can be found. Use Duck Duck Go for searches. You may want to check out the VAERS (vaccine adverse effect reports database). This information is being POWERFULLY SUPPRESSED so people like you who think the c19 shots have benefits continue believing that. The dangers and horrors from these shots grossly outweigh any psychological benefit from them.
Sandgroper respectfully awareness and handwashing accounted for most (if not all) reduction in COVID.
Masking problems are manyfold. A lot of folks don’t wear them correctly, IF at all. Most reuse that nasty mask and stuff it into their pocket or purse. Shortly afterwards they touch their face.
See the problem?
Viral load is the key. Enough needs to overwhelm your natural defenses known as your immune system.
Take a look at your fingers, there is 10 reasons you got a large load of virus in your system when you touch your eyes, nose of mouth.
Thus, handwashing is a real effective defense. In the Operating room we are taught not to touch our face by applying tabasco to the fingers.
It only takes a few episodes to learn that TRUELY Effective handwashing to remove that Tabasco and DON’T touch your face.
It was INTERESTING that when COVID showed up the Flue simply disappeared.
Now that COVID is a secondary concern the Flue is BACK?
COVID was a bioweapon designed and paid for by Dr. Fauci and released so the “Vaccines” (Which btw take YEARS to develop) could SUDDENLY BE Available.
Fauci has a major stock holding in Pizer, no conflict there, eh? He’s made millions on COVID.
I fear that the Vaxx IS the Real Bioweapon for population control. A disease in the “wild” isn’t controllable but something you can inject into the targets is very controllable.
Praying I’m wrong but my stock in Insurance Companies is losing value due to “Deaths in All Categories” is far in excess than normal for the past two years. My stocks in Funeral Companies are booming for the same reason.
In normal times they are the Boring stable money makers via dividends but now they are looking like speculative stocks.
Sudden death syndrome is real. I personally know a few once proud vaxxed and boosted folks that died recently, a few cripples also vaxxed and boosted.
I’m praying for friends and family members that ignored my concerns about an Emergency Use Only (Over two YEARS emergency so far) that had NO TV Mentioned Side Effects (Watch TV ads about any other drug, lots of side effects mentioned, eh?) and US Gov Legal PROTECTION from Lawsuits.
This article really is interesting and accurate. Certainly anyone with an interest can follow the links and references to achieve some basic knowledge. As for the comments….. a little off the wall. Pray for Gary that he lives, ignore the trolls and they might move on. The rest is simple, if you don’t like the me newsletter or article go somewhere else
Houttuynia cordata Is extremely effective against all utis.
Houttuynia cordata Is extremely effective against all utis.
I think there’s an echo in here
H cordata is an interesting plant. I remember it being used as a groundcover in Texas back in the 80s, it spreads rapidly from seeds and rhizomes and completely overtakes any other plants in a flower bed and is considered to be a serious threat as an invasive species of wetlands. It has many many culinary and medicinal uses in traditional Chinese and Vietnamese medicine and cuisine. The problem is the plant tastes like a big mouthful of spoiled fish and there is no way to get around that. It takes months of digging to eliminate it from a garden, so careful where you plant it.
Traditional Chinese medicine is based on regulating the flow of heat through the body, an excess of heat or cold being the cause of illness. Most Chinese herbs aren’t targeted at a specific illness, rather they act upon a person’s mix of hot and cold. This makes it hard to specify the usefulness of TCM treatments as Western style remedies, it very well could be effective against UTIs, no pharma company is going to waste money on researching a cure they can’t steal from the people, most herbal remedies help at least some people, you just have to (carefully) try them yourself.
Doh! Didn’t mean to down vote, meant to upvote! Sorry!
I’m curious / might hunt down some book on the TCM idea of hot/cold. Western medicine can have some focus towards on/off or accelerator / brake types of systems, and I wonder if there’s a synergy between these too.
Treating a symptom in isolation (as is often the case in Western medicine) means you don’t treat the cause, and if you tamp down a small grass fire here, but the cause was an underlying electrical fault then you might get zapped next time you have a shower. Western medicine could do a lot more system wide management. The links between vagyl nerve response and mRNA vaccines was interesting – people who were fainting weren’t in anaphylaxis – it was the overwhelm of the stress and the fear and emotions, mixed with a small immune response, and the very common vagyl nerve reactions. There’s something in this… for those with allergies to ponder. If we can live a calmer, more peaceful life, can we turn down our hyper vigilant bodies, and reduce the systemic responses… taking allergy meds is just the external symptom, but can we lower the DEFCON level overall?
Does TCM and Western medicine have a similar approach, if you look at systemic medical knowledge. Curious!
@Sandgroper, – look up Traditional Chinese Medicine on DDG. You’ll have plenty of options for learning. TCM doesn’t just identify and treat hot and cold, it’s a complex syst4em that addresses energy meridians in the body, heat, cold, wind, phlegm (dry/moist). It’s basically a system of energy movement and interaction. Each plant has it’s own energetic vibration and that energy affects something in the body that is off balance. TCM is about restoring balance to the body systems. They do not look at individual diseases. Disease is considered an expression of the imbalance that exists in the body. Correct the imbalance, the disease will resolve itself. It’s fascinating and quite logical!
Most MD’s have zero problem writing you an RX for all your necessary, non-narcotic or addicting medication, or monitored meds – for a full year refill. ANY Pharmacist will tell you in private 99% of meds lose strength 6-8 months past the outdate but it is a slow decay.
Fine…………. If there are NO meds in the pipeline, you need your BP meds or many others and especially the elderly, do you really care at 4 years “post outdate”, they may have lost a minimal level of potency? If something looks or smells really wrong, use your judgement. Don’t take something that looks like it shouldn’t. You know this.
Then get on Good RX and follow the instructions as this will be out of pocket. Who cares? A full year of all mission critical meds stored in a cool, dark room with minimal moisture – good WELL beyond the outdates, for a couple hundred bucks for the two of you.
Why would you NOT do this?
Even VA MD’s will write these refills as they are not prohibitive medications, they relate to your exact personal care and they know that, brings zero charges or fees to the VA or MD in a private office, so no harm there either. Have the courtesy to ask your MD to do this before your yearly exam so they can have it ready for you on their schedule before you arrive.
Then Good RX, follow the instructions, take those Rx’s there, and done. If you use rare meds, there may be a slight delay to fill a years worth. Best to drop off your Rx’s and come back in a day or two. Make friends.
China makes many of your base meds and matrix’s there, and we’ve been through this before with them if you were paying attention – where there was an intentional tactical “delay” from China and some problems from that – once already? Remember?
It is BEYOND ME why we would outsource all our critical, life saving meds to China. Very very very stupid move! I wonder whose brilliant idea that was?
Federal law is no more then 90days of meds you can have.
No doctor is going to write an RX for a year.
Colloidal Silver is a near perfect antibiotic. Colloidal silver has been reported to kill 650 micro organisms, many of which are associated with human diseases. This does not automatically mean that taking colloidal silver will “cure” disease caused by these germs. Colloidal silver only kills micro-organisms when they are in contact with it for a sufficient period of time. The human body is a complex system, which may prevent high enough concentrations of colloidal silver from reaching the “affected area”. Just about every known germ, bacteria, virus or fungus, will die within six minutes of contact with colloidal silver. In addition, there are no known bad side effects from using colloidal silver.
GLN offers a partial list of the more than 650 diseases that colloidal silver has been reputed to be successful against: acne, AIDS/HIV, allergies, appendicitis, arthritis, athlete’s foot, bladder inflammation, blood parasites, blood poisoning, boils, bowel detoxification, burns, cancer, candida albicans, cholera, chronic fatigue syndrome, colitis, common cold, conjunctivitis, cuticle infections, cystitis, coronavirus, dandruff, dermatitis, diabetes, dysbiosis (gut bacteria become imbalanced), dysentery, eczema, Epstein-Barr virus EBV, fibrositis, food poisoning and dysentery, gastritis, gonorrhea, hay fever, hepatitis B & C, herpes, impetigo, indigestion, keratitis, leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphangitis, Lyme disease, malaria, meningitis, neurasthenia, parasitic infections: viral, fungal and bacterial pneumonia, pleurisy, prostate enlarged, pruritus ani, psoriasis, purulent opthalmia, rhinitis, rheumatism, ringworm, rosacea, scarlet fever, septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, seborrhea, septicemia, sepsis, shingles, sinusitis, skin cancer, staphylococcus and streptococcus infections, stomach flu, stomach ulcer, syphilis, thrush, thyroid, tooth and gum infections, tonsillitis, toxemia, trachoma, trench foot, tuberculosis, urinary tract infections, all forms of virus, warts, whooping cough, yeast infection, canine paravirus and other veterinary uses, and fungal and viral attacks on plants.

Iodine kills 99% of all microbes, virus, bacterial, fungal. And it kills many cancers. PLUS it is necessary mineral for our bodies. Nearly every organ (including the immune system) need iodine to perform their functions. Americans are critically deficient in iodine. Prevent and cure disease AND support your organs and glands all at once with Iodine! Large quantities of Lugol’s solution needs to be in every medical kit!
And then there is chlorine dioxide/mms. It does everything that iodine and then some! It cures the incurable and it increases the oxygen levels in cells. Pretty impressive and you can make it yourself!
Deadly Infections People Can Get After The SHTF
Flu – Lack of treatment. In a scenario where the healthcare community collapse is unable to flu outbreaks. If left untreated, the flu can be fatal – especially in the elderly and the young.
Meningitis – The danger of Meningitis is that it can be viral. This forms a great risk where a lot of people are living together in crowded unclean conditions. Viral meningitis is spread more easily than bacterial meningitis, but viral meningitis is far less lethal.
West Nile Virus and other Related Mosquito Disease’s – When a disaster strikes your location, this will be disastrous. A disaster will lead to sanitation systems being down, sanitation systems being down will lead to a gigantic amount of bugs, and a gigantic amount of bugs means a gigantic amount of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes will become infected with the virus by biting other infected animals, and can infect human beings this way.
Dysentery – Dysentery refers to bloody diarrhea and is a colon infection that can be caused by a number of things including bacteria, parasites, viruses, and even protozoa. These infections typically spread as a result of poor hygiene or sanitation.
Cholera – Like dysentery, cholera is a gastral infection that is contracted by drinking contaminated water. Rather than infecting the colon, though, cholera is an infection of the small intestine.
Typhoid Fever – Typhoid Fever is spread by contact with (infected) human feces. This illness is not to be taken lightly, as it is a serious condition and can be fatal.
Typhus or “Black Plague” – Epidemic typhus has been one of the great disease scourges in human history. It is classically associated with people crowded together in filth, cold, poverty, and hunger; with wars and famine; with refugees; with prisons and jails; with concentration camps; and with ships. Current outbreaks in Los Angels and San Fansico.
Norovirus – Norovirus is a highly contagious gastral infection that can be spread through the air as well as through the consumption of contaminated food and water.
Pneumonia – Pneumonia is a respiratory infection that can be brought on by a number of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. In most cases, the diseases that could lead to pneumonia are treated and eliminated before pneumonia ever has a chance to take hold. If left untreated, can quickly turn into fatal pneumonia.
Tetanus – In the developed world, tetanus is quite uncommon. Being punctured by a rusty metal object certainly isn’t an everyday occurrence, and even if you do suffer an injury that makes tetanus a concern, tetanus vaccines are readily available. However, in a disaster scenario where the likelihood of an unsanitary injury is much higher and access to the vaccine is no longer an option, tetanus becomes a much more serious concern.
Tuberculosis – In the developing world, though, tuberculosis is still a common and dangerous killer. Should a major disaster set the country back to a third-world state, tuberculosis could make a frightening comeback.
Giardia – Giardia poses a major problem, especially when untreated, unclean water is taken in. After a post-apocalyptic scenario, the options may be limited between dying of thirst or taking the chance of contaminated water. Boiling water for 30 minutes will do the trick.
E.Coli – Many efforts have been taken within the agricultural industry and water sanitation industry to prevent the spread of the deadly bacteria E.coli. In a scenario where people begin to get their food and water from less trustworthy sources, though, E.coli infection becomes a major concern.
Small pox – is a disease caused by the Variola major virus. Some experts say that over the centuries it has killed more people than all other infectious diseases combined. Worldwide vaccination stopped the spread of smallpox three decades ago. The last case was reported in 1977. Naturally occurring smallpox was destroyed worldwide by 1980. But…. I don’t think we have seem the last of this disease. If the deep state does not get there way. I’ll bet you the farm they will release this one on humanity…
Hepatitis A – This illness can be contracted via contaminated food or water. Hepatitis A gets contracted very easily – an infected person would only need to touch someone, who in turn touches their food and eats it, to infect them.
Staph Infection/Cellulitis/Boils – I’ve seen staph develop from a mosquito bite.
UTI- My mom, 87 / alzheimers was getting UTI’s 2-3 times a year, once requiring a hospital stay.
I started using a product 4 years ago from Ama zon called ‘UTI Clear’. 50ml squirt in her coffee daily. No more UTI’s. Of course, proper cleaning/hygiene is important too.
All are missing the point to the c 19 vaccine LIE.
It was a DNA grab.
All that gave there DNA are now in a data bank. They are building a number system to track you with. The mask are a bigger Lie but we live in a lie every day, thinking that they care about you or me.
LMAO they have NEVER cared. Only for there own GREED.
Judgment is coming, O’ and you WILL be there for it, WE all will…
They will use it, not for good, for EVIL……..
Cranberry juice and UTI. Take it from experience, drink cranberry juice regularly to aid in a clean urinary tract BEFORE the infection sets in. Read that again. Cranberry juice after the infection has begun only exacerbates and problem due to the acid in the juice and causes the good bacteria in your bladder to be eliminated leaving the culprit behind to take over. Don’t go near cranberry juice if you suspect you have a UTI unless you like the appearance of blood soaked urine and the pain that comes with it. A bladder infection requires medical care.
At the end of the day, it comes down to what you believe, Who you know, what you eat n drink. What herbs or pharmacueticals you take. How you live and treat yourself – who you hang around; all sorts of variables apply.
Comedy…. it comes down to what you believe.??
