Preparing for a seasonal change "Top Anti-Biotic Herbs for Preppers"

Top Antibiotic Herbs:

Target: All Main Systems
Survival: Medicine

Antibiotic herbs a essential for defeating internal or external bacteria infections as well as assisting in defeating viral infections. Yes a viral infection needs bacterial nutiemts  to mutate infected cells. 

Secondly, Powerful antiseptic herbs such as cinnamon and clove also asset in finalizing and defeating the virus. 
Therfore, now a cellar environment that is sanitized healthy cells can now replace the infected  defected herbs . Again this is why Grapefruit seed extract and Oregon Grape, are powerful antiseptics as well because of there high levels of antioxidant properties, thus also defeating the oxidation(s) of cells. Anti-oxidents and antiseptic herbs have simlar effects on the human anatomy Molecularly speaking. Anti- oxidants inhibit the oxidation of cells, joints, and muscles and keep them in optimal operational health through a natural process through the enzyms or combination of enzyms within a herbal molecular makeup.

If there are more than one herbs with the same property(s) why then do we need more than the one? That is simple the enzymes present in each herb that makes up the molecular composition will have different effects not only on the disease, infection, or aliment but according to the current individuals molecular composition it will effect them differently molecularly speaking example. green tea has powerful antioxidant properties  but the orac value is only 50,000 now clove has a chemical compound of phenyl-propanoids and can produce an orac value of 10 million. and they both possess antioxidant properties now also a herb can produce more than one property like clove because of its enzymes present and high orac levels it also possess anesthetic and antiviral properties.

Thirdly, Combining multiple types of herbs supply the body with more natural enzymes to defeat the infection,disease,or aliment(s)

A List of Good antibiotic herbs (Short List):

  • Garlic
  • Thyme

However, during some time members in your group are experiencing pains maybe tooth ache , headaches, anxiety, panic attacks general nervousness or even a sprained ankle from collecting wood for a fire for your camp or helping someone else.  or even a laceration and how about keeping those bugs away so you can bug out and sleep at night or day particularly during the summer.

Do you know how to make a debre hut to keep warm during the cold months of the year as well as the time needed to make a good one that will also protect you from the elements? or shelter primitively?  What about supplying the nutrition to your body to fulfill all these tasks and more
