When the SHTF, you're going to want to know how to treat infections when you don't have access to a doctor. Here is a chart that matches an antibiotic to an illness, including suggested doses. Print this off as a reference. You can look up online for the fish antibiotic equivalents, and start stocking up now.

So here are a few good alternative ingested herbal pain killers used for centuries–still NOT government regulated, at least at this writing–that will work for you in an emergency, or which also might work for you instead of expensive GMO prescription drugs you might now be using, and without the addictive or withdrawal characteristics of refined opiates.
1. Wild Opium Lettuce (Lactuca Serriola)
WOL is found almost anywhere and in many parts of the U.S. and it is, ironically, considered to be an invasive weed. The milky latex sap in the leaves contains the pain killer and looks similar to the sap of the opium poppy, hence the name.
Usually the O-lettuce sap is scored/scraped/squeezed from the leaves and stalks and ingested orally or mixed with juice, or made into a tea. Or even smoked for maximum fast effectiveness. The effect is a whole body numbing that relieves muscle and joint and inflammation aches and pains. O-Lettuce also works for bad coughing and helps to induce sleep. It is known as a safe, effective pain reliever without side effects or addictive properties.
2.Kava Kava (Piper Methysticum)
A healthful tonic/drink made from kava briefly made it into commercial popularity a few years ago and then quickly faded away. This was because it was so good that Big Bad Pharma couldn’t stand the competition and launched a back door bad mouth study campaign falsely claiming that it was a dangerous substance and caused all the bad side effects that only their FDA sanctioned pharmaceuticals are ‘allowed’ to cause.
In fact, Kava Kava is a popular medicinal plant indigenous to locations like Hawaii and Fiji with a well documented track record for relieving stress and particularly soothing for headaches and tension related body and muscle anxiety such as Fibromyalgia with overall systemic pain reduction.
The University of Minnesota found that Kava contains special ingredients like Nuciferine which is an anti-spasmotic helpful for preventing epileptic episodes and other brain disorders. Additionally this plant is being studied for its potential to reduce the formation and spread of nascent cancer cells.
3. Blue Lotus (Nymphaea Caerucea)
This plant provides a bounty of beneficial pain mitigating attributes besides its overwhelming natural beauty. Its main pain reduction properties are used for migraines, severe muscle spasms, Tinnitus, and also works well for systemic pains like menstrual cramps and various moderate body aches and tension.
It is not a true Lotus because there are no ‘blue’ members of the lotus family. It is actually a water lily found mostly in ponds. It’s potency is increased when combined with an alcoholic beverage and its muscle relaxation and feeling of well being and euphoric properties are enhanced to a point where some cultures have used this combination as an aphrodisiac.
4. Kratum (Mitragyna Specios)
A native tree of Thailand, but can be grown in warmer climates like California or indoors. Kratum, particularly the Red Vein Kratum variety is often used for severe pain from traumatic injuries like broken bones or torn muscles. It is compared to Oxycodone in its potency but without the addiction problems and side effects.
Red vein kratum is so ‘threatening’ to Big Pharma that they felt the tyrannical need to do something about it–even though it is not a narcotic or controlled substance–so they had their vitamin Police, the FDA, launch a raid on a Kratum importer in California to seize many thousands of pounds from their warehouse in 2014. The authorities got them on violating a ‘regulated prohibition’ on selling any substance as a medical treatment without a proper license or other special approval by the FDA. Similar to what they did with unlicensed Naturopathic practitioners, or herbologists who prescribe certain vitamins or natural compounds for their customers.
You cannot directly prescribe anything to anyone, and then sell them the actual product, if you are not licensed as a doctor or other specifically licensed or certified professional. If you are a vitamin/health store you can only inform people –as we are doing here–as to what you sell is used for, but you can’t specifically and intentionally prescribe it. This heinous crime is called ‘practicing medicine without a license’. It’s a grey area and usually only enforced if somebody complains formally. You are only allowed to ‘practice medicine’ on yourself if the substance is not illegal.
Kratum is not (yet) illegal and you can still find it at certain health food stores specializing in organic herbs or online but it might be selling under a different name so you have to research it. Some so called head shops also sell it as a form of incense or aeromatic therapy to avoid unwanted scrutiny.
5. Boswellia and Rhus Toxicodendron
Boswellia is an herb widely used in Ayurvedic medicine in India to treat both forms of serious Arthritis and Rhus Toxicodendron is a homeopathic remedy derived from poison oak specifically used for Arthritis conditions that include early morning flare ups but improves with motion. Taken in complimentary dosage their synergistic effects are claimed to be highly effective.
6. White Willow Bark (Salix Alba, S.Fragilis, or S.Purpurea)
The bark from these willow trees contains the compound Salicin and is a well known general anti-inflamatory remedy much like common Aspirin. Maybe because it is where commercial Aspirin comes from, of course not without typical Big Pharma modifications.
People have been chewing on or making tea concoctions from willow bark for centuries. It does have blood thinning properties like over the counter Aspirin so one must know that if they are on prescription blood thinning medications.
As with any substance taken internally, there is always a potential for serious abuse. And if you are on other medications for your pain problems, of course you must always check with your doctor before taking any other medications. You know, like if you have high blood pressure or a heart condition and want to take vitamins like lecithin, potent omega 3s and other such alternatives to the Warfarin rat poisons they are currently killing you with because then your blood might thin out too much? Well, really?
Makes one kind of compelled to ask the insolent question as to why, then, don’t they just use the natural remedies in the first place? One doctor told somebody I know that it’s because…’these natural substances are not yet vetted and approved by the FDA/AMA for their safety and effectiveness.’ And, of course, they never will be approved. Especially if they are too common and widespread for Big Pharma and the government to sequester so they can’t be profitable just by changing a molecule and getting a patent on it.
So as with anything else you consume, do your own diligence and research before using any alternative substances. Specifically concerning proper dosages and contraindications. There’s plenty of info on the above out there for you to arrive to your own conclusions by being well informed on the details you need to know beforehand.

Here are some simple estimated survivability statistics of the population one year after the United States is hit with a high altitude nuclear electromagnetic pulse attack. At the end of the chart is the US Census for the year 1860. With all electronics wiped out and almost all electricity gone, life will be like the 1860's again.
Very highly populated areas today in and around the larger cities will see a much lower survival rate due to lack of food and life sustaining drugs and medical equipment, increased crime, rampant murder by gangs, unsanitary conditions, and disease,
States with a lower population density may not lose as many people, but all of the above still apply. Even farmers are at risk. When people are hungry, they are only interested in the here and now. They have little concern for the future. Even though the farmer is the nation's best bet for long term survivability, hungry people will kill them simply for what they have in their kitchen pantry.
Whenever you think about wanting to be prepared for a natural or man made disaster, preparing for an EMP whether it came from a HEMP attack or a massive solar flare is the best mindset you can have to best survive any potential situation. Why? Simple. All other disasters can be prepared for from a matter of minutes, like a tornado, to weeks or months in the case of a collapse of the dollar. It could take 10 years or more to recover from an EMP and it will happen in an instant and without warning.
So, if you take a minute before you go to work, or on vacation, or travel on business, or whatever, think about what would happen if all electricity was gone in an instant. How would you eat or drink or survive? How would you get home? Get to your loved ones? How would you protect yourself and your family now and in the future from murderers, robbers, gangs and looters? If you can answer these questions in everything you do, you will be better prepared to handle anything that happens.
"That nuts!" you say. If anything happens, the police and government will protect me. If you think this way, then you don't realize how fine the line of civilization is. The police are only an illusion of safety. First of all, even today an officer can only protect you if he can see or hear you. If he cannot physically see you or hear you scream, he can't help you. You are then on your own. Even with a telephone, they are probably too far to help you right now this instant. 90% of their work is after the assault, trying to find out who did it and try to bring them to justice (another illusion).
In the average community there is only one police officer for every 600 people. There is no way an officer can physically protect all 600 people from murderers, robbers, gangs and looters. It's worse than that though. Here's an example: A small town of 60,000 has 100 officers to protect them. Only 34 of them are on duty though, because there are 3 shifts to cover. That's one officer per 1,765 people, plus all of the people that are visiting the town for whatever reason, good or bad.
Here's another thing to think about. In whatever disaster, if the officer has a family, guess who he/she is going to want to protect? That would probably not be you.
The right mindset could mean the difference between being the one that survived, or being one of the nine that died, and that death might not be pleasant.
