Zurvival Saturday (24)
For this weeks Zurvival Saturday I wanted to talk about getting sick during a Zombie Apocalypse. Getting sick under the best of circumstances is hard enough but what happens when the undead are numerous and stock piles have dwindled?
In the event an Apocalypse of Zombie proportions happens the essentials will be the first things stripped from grocery stores and Hospitals and it's not always going to be easy to make supply runs to those destinations once pickings start to slim. The items I am going to share should be in plenty of pantries and quite easy to scavenge.
1. Apple Cider Vinegar- Ah how I love ACV it has so many uses, stores an incredibly long time and best of all it is dirt cheap for a big bottle. For colds mix around a tablespoon with hot water and drink up. If your lucky enough to have some honey or lemon available mix that in for extra benefit and taste!!
2. Garlic- Look for Garlic pills first but if you can't find them either cloves or chopped works fine. Take about 2 tablespoons every 3-4 hours until you feel better. The only downside is the taste and the fact you might smell even more appetizing to Zombies.
3.Ginseng- Like garlic if you can find the pills great but if not chop up some ginseng root and soak in hot water and then drink like tea. Won't be the tastiest thing but it will kick the cold out of your system.
4. Local honey- Honey does not go bad so stock up while you can. Take 2 big spoonfuls of locally made honey to help combat colds. This will also help with pesky seasonal allergies.
5. Wash your hands- This might be hard as fresh water becomes harder to find but nothing is going to stop you from getting sick more than washing your hands. I also suggest wearing a face mask when in public after an outbreak hits. Again reducing your chance of catching unwanted nastiness.
I cannot stress enough to always consult with a doctor prior to starting any new treatment. These are merely suggestions but those that might help you should SHTF and no other treatment is available.
Now for this weeks questions. Have you ever used Natural remedies to fight a cold? Have any suggestions of your own? Leave your answer in the comments below. I love reading your responses.
