If you think we are living in scary times, our worst fears may be confirmed by crimes and violence across the globe. People are looking at the signs that the world is going to end, with anxiety and fear. The signs are all around us. There is global warming, rising gas and energy prices, shortages of food and water, disasters on land and sea. There are new diseases and economic uncertainty. Terrorist activity is increasing and banks are failing.
But conditions in the world have been getting progressively worse for many years. How do we know when things have gotten so bad that the world is soon going to end?
When you think about it, it makes sense we are living on the threshold of the end right now. In the last few months have been witnesses at several terrorist attacks, conflicts where people who struggle for freedom, racism, hatred and greed… The recent events show us how close we are to the end of the world, a world of evil thoughts and terrible acts, violence grow bigger every day. The signs show our generation is living in the last days.
We live in difficult times. From all parts of the earth, we hear a steady stream of news describing calamities and social unrest. Is there any special significance to the current world situation?
The signs of the current events where eviland violent are present everywhere, and if the signs are present in abundance, we can be certain that we are, in fact, living in the end times. Almost every sign of the end says to look for is present right now!
The world is in such a mess these days that most of the people are starting to think what is going on and what will become of all this. Why are all these things happening in our day? The answer can only be found through a source that the majority of people have forgotten about … The Holy Bible! When you study the Word of God you will see that these things were prophesied to happen a long time ago. Then the mystery begins to unfold and our eyes begin to open as to why this world is in such a terrible state.
With the chaos and uncertainty growing around the world almost daily, more people than ever should be asking “are we living in perilous times?” There is no doubt about that. Let’s just take one example of what is happening today. There are uprisings all around the world, with people protesting and rioting and governments toppling. The people are starting to see the power they have if they get together. And this is a very dangerous situation and one that will lead to the image of the beast being formed, which will bring on the enforcement of the beast’s mark. And with the economy melting all around the world, with countries nearing bankruptcy, the world is becoming ripe for a one world currency, which will aid with enforcing the mark and stop those who refuse the mark from “buying and selling”
We are surrounded by so many obvious signs that one would have to be blind not to see them, yet some fail to recognize them even when they are called to their attention. There are so many things happening in this world today of which we have never seen before. Major events that are taking place more and more frequently and with more intensity. There is no doubt we are living in the end times, and these news items only further prove where we are in history.
‘If the sign that we are near the end is so obvious,’ you might ask, ‘why do so many people fail to recognize it?’ The Bible shows that when the end is near, many will belittle the evidence. Rather than acknowledge the fundamental changes during the last days, they would scoff: “From the day our forefathers fell asleep in death, all things are continuing exactly as from creation’s beginning.” (2 Peter 3:3, 4) In other words, the sign of the last days is clear, but many will ignore it.—Matthew 24:38, 39.
It’s the same thing every time we have a mass shooting in America. Before the shell casings have time to cool the same people are calling for more gun control. Their solution for mass killings is to disarm all of the law abiding citizens so everyone can feel better about themselves thinking they did something. The people calling for these new laws are the same people that fight for the right to murder a million babies a year so it is hard to take them seriously when they complain about a lot of people being killed. Perhaps if we simply relabeled these mass shootings as post-natal abortions it would be more acceptable to certain people. The problem is that taking guns away from law abiding people does not change the way potentially dangerous people feel. If they want to hurt someone, they will find a way.
When these things happen we immediately see new legislation to try to curb the ability of people to commit these types of crimes. New red flag laws are one of the things being pushed today as a cure all. The idea is to identify people who might pose a threat to society and take away their guns before they can do something. The problem is that laws such as this only apply to certain people in practice. Are police officers, government agents and certain politicians going to be relieved of their weapons if they are accused of being a threat by someone? I seriously doubt it. These types of laws are only to disarm those the government wants to disarm.
The other problem is that Congress can pass any laws that it wants to but any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is automatically null and void. They have no legal authority to enforce it and citizens have no legal obligation to obey it, and this does not even take into account the due process issues.
Guns have been available in this country since it was founded. They were even easier to get 40 or 50 years ago than they are today. The basic gun itself has not changed that much in the past half century. So why have we suddenly been inundated with mass shootings over the past 30 years?
If the weapons are no different and no more available than 50 years ago then we need to look somewhere else. We need to look at the mental state of the shooter himself. Why did he do it? When a mass shooting has occurred it just did not happen all of a sudden. In most cases it was planned for weeks or even months before the act was committed.
When a person decides to commit a crime such as this he has some deep seated reason for it. It may not be a good reason but he has a reason. When a person has reached a point where they have no concern for the lives of others, we have to question their morality. Thousands of people walk around every day in this country carrying a gun without shooting anyone. So why does one person out of these thousands decide to kill people? At some point they have been led to believe it is alright. They have been instilled with the belief that it is justified according to the way they feel.
A persons belief system determines if they are willing to harm another person and under what conditions they are willing to do so. The lower a persons ethics and morality are, the quicker they are willing to do bad things. A persons ethics and morality are learned qualities they gather from those around them and from the places they are educated. Unless a person is a born sociopath, they learn to hurt others from people who think it is alright.
If one wanted to argue the issue they could probably make the case that our learning institutions are at least partially to blame for the shootings we now have to deal with. Universities are now actively teaching kids that they should physically attack those that have a different view than they do. Conservatives are now openly attacked on campuses and in the streets across the country. Schools are actively promoting degeneracy to young impressionable children.
This is what happens when you teach kids that their feelings are more important than rational thought. Our feelings are very volatile things. They can sway from one extreme to another for many reasons. When you teach kids that it is alright to act on these feelings, they can do things without thinking about the act or the consequences.
You can take away as many guns as you want, it will not change the way some people think. If they cannot use a gun they will use a knife. If they cannot use a knife they will use a hammer. If they want to kill lots of people and don’t have a gun they will use a bomb. If they cannot get a bomb they will use a vehicle. If they cannot use a vehicle they will use an airplane. There is always something else they can use to act out on their impulses.
Until we once again teach kids the difference between right and wrong, we will continue to see acts of violence in society. The days when people respected one another and restrained their more violent feelings because they understood the consequences, are in our past. Until we regain some sense of ethics and morality in society this will not end.
The increase in human and animal populations on Earth increases the likelihood of a severe pandemic coming about naturally. The experimentation by many nations with biological agents increases the likelihood of such an event happening either by accident or design. When a new outbreak occurs most people look toward the government to contain the disaster and save the people. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how noble the government is. Today it is unfortunate that the government is so intertwined with corporations that the best interest of the people is often set aside for the best interest of business. Because of this it is beneficial for people to have their own defense plan to deal with an outbreak should one occur.
One of the most effective elements at our disposal is silver. The dispersion of silver atoms in distilled water creates a very effective medicinal that has been used for decades to control many lethal pathogens. Until pharmaceuticals became widely produced in the 1940’s colloidal silver was the weapon of choice for numerous conditions. The rise of resistant diseases today has led many health professionals to reexamine the usefulness of silver.
It is used today in topical ointments, colloidal mixtures and even in threads in clothing to destroy body odor causing bacteria. Silver is truly a gift from nature. The reluctance by the pharmaceutical industry to embrace colloidal silver is a matter of profits. It has been declared a non medical substance and is widely available to the public. As a result it is not profitable for corporations and as such they try to ignore its results in favor of designer drugs they can patent and control.
The use of colloidal silver, natural honey, apple cider vinegar and garlic to name a few natural substances, can make all the difference in your health when the next nasty bug calls. The ability to create your own defenses against a future threat gives you power over your life instead of handing your future over to individuals whose motives may be suspect.
The government cannot be relied on to keep you healthy based on the corporate control of many facets of our system. You do not want to become victim to any future government machinations that may prove terminal to you or your family. The ability of the government to control who gets vaccinations when a new virus hits provides them the opportunity to round up any dissenters in an easy way.
For these and other reasons, it is wise for individuals to plan for self help when this type of disaster happens. The ability to grow and produce medicinal drugs and antibiotics allows individuals to avoid dangerous places that others are drawn to in time of need. The acquisition of colloidal silver generators, medicinal seeds and literature to provide the necessary instruction to care for yourself and your family is something that should be located sooner rather than later.
New designer drugs are now becoming less effective to resistant diseases and it is only a matter of time before a new pathogen arises that contemporary drugs cannot handle. We are fast approaching the day when the human species is laid naked before a new killer that will run rampant among the population and the only thing that may save us are the natural defenses provided by nature itself. The pompous nature of man that allows him to believe he is smarter than nature will ultimately cause the death of many millions before humility forces him to accept what we already know. Nature provides a delicate balance in the world and when man interferes with that balance he ultimately injures himself.
Long before big box stores with their shelves of medicines, and long before the age of instant information, there was passed-down, time-tested wisdom on how to treat common ailments with natural remedies.
Our forefathers and foremothers used plants, common sense, and a little know-how to ease all types of pain and discomfort. In many cases, these treatments worked as well or better than the medications we purchase today. Plus, they worked without the risk of added chemicals and preservatives.

What’s another side benefit? Many of these items are readily on hand in your pantry. Here are some lost remedies from the old days for 13 common ailments.
Horseradish – Moisturize your forehead and under-nose area. About fifteen minutes later, wrap two to three teaspoons of grated horseradish in a soft cloth or cheesecloth and apply to the base of your nose or to your forehead until you feel a light burning sensation. Remove.
Vitamin C – Squeeze the juice from half of a lemon into a cup. Drop the peel and remaining pulp into the cup as well. Add boiling water and a teaspoon of honey. Breathe in the steam as you stir and then sip slowly after it cools.
Cough and Sore Throat
Nix the supermarket cough drops and try one of these remedies instead.
Basil – Chewing on some fresh basil leaves can relieve a dry cough.
Gargle – Make a simple but effective mouthwash of salt and warm water or freshly squeezed lemon juice and warm water. Gargle and repeat as often as needed.
Honey Tea – Mix two teaspoons of honey with warm water or with an herbal tea of your choice. Sip twice a day. (Not for children under 12 months.)
Nutshell Tea – Place five ounces of nut shells in a teapot, add water, and boil. Sip slowly to soothe your throat.
What’s amazing is we are just scratching the surface with this list of home remedies. There are many more out there. If you’re interested in learning more old remedies, you should .
The physical book has 300 pages, with 3 colored pictures for every plant and for every medicine.
Pine Needle Tea – Here’s how to make it:
Rinse one cup of needles before finely chopping them.
Next, place a half cup plus two tablespoons of water, two tablespoons of corn syrup, and a pinch of salt to a boil in a saucepan.
Whisk ingredients together and then boil for one minute without stirring.
Remove the pan from the heat, add the chopped needles, and steep the mixture for two to three hours.
Take two teaspoons of the resulting syrup to reduce cough and sore throat.
Pine Syrup – Try two teaspoons of pine syrup to ease a cough and a sore throat.
Cuts, Scrapes and Bruises
Here are a few first aid tips that use items you probably have on hand in your home.
Banana Peels – For minor cuts and scratches, wash the area and then rub gently with the inside of a banana peel.
Bread & Apple Cider Vinegar – To help heal a bruise, rub the area with bread that has been soaked in apple cider vinegar.
Aloe Vera, Chamomile Tea, or Honey – Apply directly to the area.
Apple Cider Vinegar – Here’s an “old wives’ take” your grandmother or great-grandmother may have recommended for reducing a high fever. Soak your socks in apple cider vinegar. Then put them on your feet and keep them on for about 20 minutes. You can repeat the process with fresh vinegar every half hour until the fever subsides.
Ginger Powder – Another idea is to make a paste of ginger powder and two tablespoons water. Place the paste on your forehead for a few minutes.
Peppermint Oil – The scent of pure peppermint oil can open clogged blood vessels in the head, easing headache pain.
Potato Slices – Did you know you can treat headaches with potato slices? Apply two to three slices of raw potato to your forehead. If necessary, keep them in place with a scarf or bandana. Another option is to grate a raw potato and squeeze any potato liquid into a glass of water. Sip the potato water.
Here are some old-school remedies for an upset stomach.
Apple Cider Vinegar & Honey – Stir one tablespoon of honey and one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar into a cup of warm water and sip slowly to ease indigestion pain.
Caraway Seeds – Nibble on a handful of caraway seeds to stop bloating discomfort.
CRAP Foods – I’m not talking about foods that taste like crap. I’m talking about the acronym which stands for cherries, raisins, apricots and prunes. These fruits are rich in fiber and help your digestive system function more smoothly.
Fennel – Chew a few pieces of raw fennel to help reduce gas and reduce stomach cramping.
Peppermint – This is a time-honored treatment for stomach upset. Try sipping peppermint tea or sucking on a piece of peppermint.
Peppermint-Carrot Tea – Here’s how to make it:
Boil four cups of water along with four sliced carrots.
Add either one peppermint teabag or one teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves.
Lower the heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes or so until the carrots soften.
Remove the tea bag (if using) and blend the mixture in a blender until smooth.
Adding a pinch of ground ginger or a squeeze of lemon juice will boost the antioxidants in this tea.
Insect Bites and Stings
Here are a few natural remedies for bites and stings from pesky insects.
Apple Cider Vinegar – Apply apple cider vinegar with a cotton ball or a swab to the painful or itchy area.
Baking Soda & Water – Make a paste of baking soda and water. Apply it the bite area and allow it to dry.
Basil – Place freshly crushed basil or sage on the area.
Onions, Leeks, or Cabbage – Apply slices of raw onions, leeks, or cabbage directly to the bite or sting.
Parsley, Honey, and Salt – Make a poultice of parsley, honey, and salt and place it on the spot.
Tea Bags – Press a used tea bag against the bite until the itching subsides.
Dark Red Cherries – Fresh dark red cherries or juice made from them are an excellent source of melatonin, a hormone that helps to regulate the body’s sleep-wake cycle. Eat cherries or drink tart cherry juice about an hour before bedtime to help relax and get a good night’s sleep.
To soothe the pain of a minor burn and to promote skin healing, try these natural treatments.
Aloe Vera – Cut the leaves of an Aloe Vera plant open and gently smear the contents on the burn or sunburn.
Banana – Lay the inside of a banana peel on the burn.
Egg – A raw beaten egg can be used as part of a poultice to soothe burned skin.
Olive Oil – Gently apply a layer of olive oil to the area.
Onion – Slice an onion and gently rub the open surface on the affected skin.
Potato – Place cut potato slices on the burned area.
Muscle Aches and Pains
Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, Cabbage, or Cauliflower – These can all help accelerate toxin elimination from a painful place in the body. Here’s a tried and true remedy:
Soften two or three cabbage leaves in boiled water.
Place them around the affected area for a few hours.
Cover them with a towel or a scarf as needed.
Epsom Salt – Soak in a warm tub of water mixed with a cup or two of Epsom salt for 15 minutes or until the water has cooled. (Check with your doctor first if you have a heart problem, high blood pressure, or diabetes.)
Magnesium – This can help aching muscles. One way to get more in your diet is by adding a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses to your coffee or tea in the morning. Or try making old-fashioned “switchel” with this recipe:
Stir together 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup of molasses, 1/2 cup of honey, and 1 1/2 teaspons of ground ginger.
Add two quarts water and mix until dissolved.
Chill or serve over ice.
Ginger – It contains compounds called gingerols and shogaols that help ease queasiness, morning sickness, and mild stomach upset. Steep one to two grams of fresh ginger root in boiling water to make a tea. Sip slowly after it has steeped for three to five minutes. (Do not consume more than four grams of ginger per day as it can irritate the stomach lining.)
Skin Irritations and Rashes
Chamomile Tea – Another method is to apply cooled-down or refrigerated chamomile tea to the irritated area with a cotton ball.
Oatmeal – Add oatmeal to warm bathwater to soothe and reduce itchiness, especially due to chicken pox.
Walnut Leaves – Age-old wisdom uses walnut leaves to treat skin problems. Boil green walnut leaves in water for 15 minutes. Let it cool before straining. Then apply the liquid to the skin using clean gauze or cloth.
Pioneer lore contains many tested remedies for toothaches.
Clove Oil – One of them involves soaking a cotton ball in clove oil and then pressing it on the painful area.
Cloves – Chewing a few cloves also can provide relief.
Garlic – Garlic is another natural remedy for tooth pain. You can simply press a clove of garlic onto the painful tooth. The garlic juice works as a natural anesthetic.
Peppermint Tea Bags – Apply them to soothe sensitive gums and ease mouth pain.
Not only do these treatments save time and money, but it feels good to use natural ingredients when we have an ailment.
One of the major issues many preppers face in preparing for a grid down or SHTF scenario is what to do about illnesses, infections, and injuries that are bound to happen. The world will be in chaos. Doctors and pharmacies will be overrun quickly. Public services will be overwhelmed or possibly shut down entirely.
Preparing now, to deal with illness, disease, and injury, by adding fish antibiotics to your stockpile, is one more way to tip the odds in your favor when SHTF. In truth, fish antibiotics for survival is a pretty controversial topic. There are some who believe it to be insanity. But others swear that fish antibiotics can save human lives. You’ll ultimately have to decide for yourself, all I can provide is information to help you decide.
Your first line of defense is, of course, prevention. But you won’t be able to wrap yourself or loved ones in a bubble to keep them from getting sick or injured when SHTF.
Luckily, many symptoms of illnesses, injuries, and diseases can be treated with standard first aid supplies that are readily available and easy to stockpile. Still others can be treated or healed with readily accessible medicinal herbs and plants that can be foraged or cultivated.
Serious Bacterial Infections Require Antibiotics
But if you or a loved one gets a tooth abscess, comes down with a respiratory bacterial infection, or ends up with an infected wound, what will you do? Serious bacterial infections require antibiotics and without them, you or your loved one could die. For many people, this fear leads to stockpiling antibiotics, just in case.
You can ask your regular physician to prescribe an extra ten or 14 days worth of penicillin perhaps. But one extra dose of antibiotics isn’t much. And one type of antibiotic isn’t a cure all for the many different infections you could get. In today’s world, physicians increasingly fear resistance to antibiotics and therefore are limiting the times and frequency with which they will prescribe antibiotics.
There aren’t any physicians who will prescribe you large amounts of several different types of antibiotics so you can keep them in your stockpile. This has made it difficult for preppers to stockpile antibiotics and store them for a SHTF scenario.
So what can you do? How can you get antibiotics without a prescription so you can stockpile them for the future? More and more people are considering fish antibiotics as a potential solution.
Keep reading for more information on the benefits of fish antibiotics. We’ll explain some of the mystery in fish antibiotics, how to choose the right fish antibiotics, and give you some suggestions on where to buy fish antibiotics for your stockpile.
Do Fish Antibiotics Really Cure Bronchitis in Fish?
If you had fish as a kid you probably remember having to treat their water with medicine at some point during their short life span. That treatment was likely an antibiotic in the forms of drops or powder designed for fish and made to be absorbed through their skin. As an adult, you have heard preppers talking about taking fish antibiotics and you’ve maybe even clicked a link or two and thought about buying some yourself. But have you ever wondered why fish antibiotics come in pill form? Fish can’t take pills, can they?
If you read some of the reviews for fish antibiotics on Amazon, you might get confused by the comments about “fish” getting bronchitis the week before a new job or having infected gums and being cured with fish mox pills. But don’t worry, fish don’t really get bronchitis or infected gums. These are actual people posting reviews of fish antibiotics and referring to their loved ones or themselves as “fish”. In fact, many people buy fish antibiotics because they are cheaper than prescription antibiotics.
Can Humans Use Fish Antibiotics?
The short answer is yes, humans can and do use fish antibiotics. In fact, there’s a growing trend, especially in America, of humans buying fish antibiotics for their own ailments. It’s a common practice for preppers. In reality, manufacturers know this, which is why they are making fish antibiotics in pill form and selling them. They know they are walking a fine legal line which is why it’s so difficult to find solid information on fish antibiotics for humans.
Many preppers do buy different types of fish antibiotics in large quantities over time and add them to their survival stockpile as a way of getting around needing a prescription for antibiotics. But if you’re going to use fish antibiotics or any other animal antibiotics, you must do your research, understand that there ARE risks involved, and be sure what you’re getting is what you believe it is.
Why Use Fish Antibiotics?
It’s ALWAYS more advisable to see a doctor and be properly diagnosed and treated whenever possible. That said, the reasons people use fish antibiotics are varied and include:
You can buy fish antibiotics without a prescription which makes them easier to stockpile than prescribed antibiotics.
If you stockpile fish antibiotics now, you can have the ability to treat infections and other illnesses post-SHTF when doctors and pharmacies are inaccessible.
Typically, fish antibiotics are cheaper to buy than prescription antibiotics.
Some people just really don’t like or trust doctors and would rather treat themselves.
How to Choose Fish Antibiotics for Survival
Once you decide you want to try fish antibiotics, the dilemma then becomes how to choose the right antibiotics for your needs. Just like antibiotics for humans, there are different kinds of fish antibiotics. It’s really important to get the antibiotic that will work for the type of infection you have and will be absorbed the right way and to the right location. So, the first place to start is to know what kind of bacterial infection you have or as much as you can about what it is so you can choose the fish antibiotic that is best.
The single best way to know what kind of bacterial infection you have is to visit the doctor and be diagnosed with a lab test. But when SHTF, this probably won’t be possible. So in a survival scenario, you will have to determine for yourself if taking the wrong fish antibiotic is worth the risk. In most cases, taking the wrong antibiotic won’t kill you directly but it can lead to death if the right treatment isn’t taken quickly.
All pharmaceutical antibiotics for humans are required to be imprinted and coded. Fish antibiotics in pill form also have to be coded and imprinted. Do not take ANY pills that are blank or do not have a legible imprint and code. Use this pill identifier to make certain you have the fish antibiotics that you think. USP certified and pharmaceutical grade labels can not be relied upon when it comes to fish antibiotics, so be cautious of false promises.
Most Commonly Taken Antibiotics Include:
Penicillin 500 mg – look for Fish Pen Forte
Amoxicillin 500 mg- is called Fish Mox
Ciprofloxacin 500 mg – Fin Flox
Ampicillin 250 mg- order Fish Cillin
Cephalexin 500 mg-Fish Flex Forte
Clindamycin 150 mg-Fish Cin
Metronidazole 500 mg- Fish Zole
Since I’m not a physician, I cannot give you advice about your medical situation. So, I won’t get into which antibiotic should be taken for different kinds of infections. You’ll need to determine what kind of infection you have and then research which human antibiotic and dosage is appropriate. Once you know the human type of antibiotic, dosage, and length of treatment is needed, you can have a pretty good idea which fish antibiotics to buy for your stockpile by looking at the above lists.
But honestly, in a SHTF situation, if you take nothing, you die from infection, so having some of these on hand to try could just save your life.
My recommendation is to find a physician NOW who will work with you so that instead of using antibiotics from the pharmacy, you can try the equivalent in fish antibiotics now. This will help you to know which antibiotics to choose and will let you experiment while medical supervision and emergency help is still available if things go awry.
Where Can I Buy Fish Antibiotics
One of the most common questions people ask me about fish antibiotics for survival, is “where can I buy fish antibiotics?” One of the key things is that you do you research on your own and buy from a reputable manufacturer. I recommend purchasing online and that you do not buy from Craig’s List, EBay, etc.
One of the most trusted brands for fish antibiotics in the prepping community is ThomasLabs. This is where my own research led me and this is the only source I will buy from. There are tons of companies that offer ThomasLabs brand fish antibiotics. But you still must do your own research, then check the pills you receive using the pill identifier once they arrive. There are no regulations on fish antibiotics so USP and Pharmaceutical grade labels can be misleading.
Warnings About Using Fish Antibiotics for Prepping
Taking the wrong dosage or the wrong type of antibiotic can be dangerous. In addition, taking medication that isn’t what you believe it is or which has other ingredients or fillers, can cause allergic reactions or other problems.
Storage of Fish Antibiotics
Just like prescription antibiotics and OTC medications, fish antibiotics can be susceptible to improper storage conditions. Make sure that you follow all manufacturer instructions for properly storing your fish antibiotics. Rotate what you have so that your freshest medication is in your stockpile.
If you have a viral or parasitic issue going on, and not a bacterial infection, antibiotics won’t help. Whenever possible, you should be diagnosed by a physician who can advise you as to the proper type of human antibiotic, dosage and course of treatment so you can find the equivalent in fish antibiotics.
Using antibiotics when you don’t really need them increases resistance, something scientists believe is the reason for the increase in antibiotic-resistant superbugs. If you stop taking the fish antibiotics before the recommended course of treatment is over, you risk that infection lying dormant and coming back even stronger and more resistant. It’s just as important to take fish antibiotics for the full course of treatment as it is for prescribed antibiotics.
Risk of Using Fish Antibiotics
Fish antibiotics are not FDA approved for human consumption. There is risk associated with using any animal antibiotics for humans as they are not regulated. Some manufacturers add fillers and additives to their fish antibiotics which are not safe for humans to ingest. Fillers and additives can also interact with other medications you may be taking or cause you to have an allergic reaction.
What Else Is Out There?
In addition to adding fish antibiotics to your survival stockpile, research and identify what else is out there that can help you keep yourself and your family alive if you get sick or hurt in a survival situation. Consider not only stockpiling fish antibiotics but also stocking up on OTC medications, and growing or foraging for medicinal plants and herbs that can be made into tinctures and ointments for use when needed.
Another little known fact is that studies have shown that many people don’t get sufficient vitamins and minerals in their diets. In fact, many people could be suffering from various ailments including fatigue, weak bones, and a weakened immune system right now because of a vitamin or mineral deficiency. Without the proper level of minerals and vitamins, your body cannot function the way it’s supposed to work.
Consider ways to add the following vitamins and minerals to your diet both now and if you find yourself in a SHTF or survival situation:

For several years many people have had the opinion that the global elite have had a plan to kill off a significant portion of the worlds population and take complete control of the resources and people. The raping of the worlds financial assets by these people has insured that they must do something to cover their tracks in a way to avert repercussions on themselves from an irate population. A global holocaust that puts people in survival mode would lend itself nicely to the police state being erected to contain the people.
Dave Hodges has uncovered some evidence that a company named Crucell developed a fully effective Ebola vaccine in 2006. The CDC has patented the Ebola virus and can now demand to be paid royalties for any vaccine used against the virus. This means the Ebola virus is now the intellectual property of the CDC. There are reports of the government putting pressure on sectors that promote natural cures and health products that may stop or prevent this type of outbreak. Few years ago shipments of nano silver being sent to Africa have been blocked. This sounds like the elite protecting its investment.
If an enterprising group of people wanted to gain control of a country or even the world, a highly contagious and deadly virus would be a good weapon to use. When released into the population it would cause unmitigated chaos. It has the potential to collapse every major system people depend on for daily life. The healthcare system, energy, transportation, security, financial and food production of an entire country could be collapsed in a matter of months. In a previous article I noted that they war gamed a pandemic several years ago and one thing that came out was that once the economy shut down they had no idea how to start it up again.
Anyone that had the cure for this bug would be in the position to select who gets saved and who does not. That is the whole point of bio warfare. Kill the enemy while having the ability to protect your own troops. When the British had trouble with Indians in America they simply sent them small pox infected blankets and within a few weeks the Indians were ravaged with disease leaving them unable to effectively continue fighting.
There is a movie called ULTRAVIOLET that has some similar undertones to what might happen soon. The government created a virus that got out and infected some people. These people became the new enemy that allowed total government control. When these people were all but eliminated the government developed a new virus to release into the atmosphere and infect everyone else. This would force them to go to the government on a regular basis to get the necessary treatment to continue living.
Who can forget the mural at the Denver International Airport that depicts people dying at the feet of a soldier wearing a gas mask. This may be the future we have in store if this is the nefarious plan of some evil group seeking total control. If this is the plan I suspect it is only the first of a multi phase plan to wage global war and consolidate resources and land holdings for the select few. Any country infected with a deadly virus would be hard pressed to wage war or even protect its own borders against an enemy with immune soldiers.
There will no doubt be people that have natural immunity or access to natural cures that keep them healthy and these will likely be one enemy that government seeks out in the future. They cannot risk the failure to control some and prevent the control of all. The best thing that people can do at this time is to prepare for system wide failure if it should happen and educate themselves on natural remedies that are out of the control of government purveyors of ill health.
If Americans ever revolted this disease could give the government the means to control the population. Anyone who wanted the cure would have to succumb to the government healthcare system. This would leave the rebels outside the system and easier to identify.
Let us not forget that the government has promised trillions more to people than it will ever have the ability to deliver. There are only two ways to solve that problem. Either they can default on the promises in some form or they can eliminate the people that are supposed to get them. To default would cause riots and imminent danger for those in government so another way would be more palatable for them. Zbiginew Brezinski once gave a speech and said it is now easier to kill one million people than it is to control one million people. That may be part of the solution we have in store as time goes on. Obamacare will surely kill many in the years to come as healthcare is rationed and a good pandemic would help as well.
Here is another aspect of Ebola that no one has talked about. If this disease becomes rampant in America, it will most likely be picked up by other species of animals here. These animals may not die from Ebola but they can become carriers of it. With the disease spreading among the many animal species it may cause an untold number of mutations that have the capability to reinfect humans. Just like in Africa where some species now transmit the disease to humans, this could lead to Americans needing shots every year from Ebola just like they now need annual Flu shots for the prevalent strain that year.
This can also make the home production of meat almost impossible as individuals will not be able to afford the testing necessary to insure their flocks are Ebola Free. This can also put an end to hunting as we know it due to the infectious nature of this disease. This could make meat consumption in this country something only the rich and well connected will be able to afford as only government certified meat will be available for sale. The testing of this meat will raise the price considerably. That will probably make the corporations engaged in this type of activity very happy.
There are an untold number of problems this disease can cause in this country and that is the reason people should be afraid not only of the disease but of the government response to it. The government can actually make it much worse than it would otherwise be. With the lack of trust in government today the people have a great deal to be worried about. If we are entering the end game of some plot, we will most likely be inundated with multiple crises at once as time goes on. This will keep people off balance and looking to government for help. At this time people need to stay as informed as possible to keep ahead of the next planned crisis. Things will likely get worse from here so prepare yourself for that.
Who really has their pulse on the conditions of the market and the economy? Every day we get “flash signs” of things to come. Jobless claims go up, consumer confidence goes down and economists toss the economic crisis ball back and forth.
Shipping volume has fallen, and everything is lining up with the numbers of 2008.
This is the messaging we get on a daily basis. I think most economists and financial bloggers are doing their best to keep us ahead of another crash like in 2008. However, the next economic crisis isn’t going to look anything like 2008
When you take an armed nation that has so overspent itself for the last 50 years and threaten a situation like economic collapse, it doesn’t get any worse. We have clear modern-day examples of what an economic crash can look like. See Venezuela. However, history knows nothing about what the American economic crisis will look like.
The numbers of those dead will look, to historians, like the greatest war ever waged on Earth’s soil. We are a nation divided that seems to be looking for a reason to get at each other’s throats. With the onset of things like resource scarcity and inflation, your life will be at risk.
So how will you die in during an economic crisis?
#1. Early Stage Riots
The early days of the economic crisis will be calm in comparison to what is to come. We will see national riots that encompass every major city across the nation. These riots will be brought on by massive job loss, bank runs, exorbitant cost of goods and the rebellious nature of the American people.
These will be violent, bloody riots that are much different than anything we have seen in this nation. If you get swept up into one of these riots it could be your life. However, this is just the beginning.
While riots may satisfy the desperate and the unprepared during the daytime hours, they will get hungry and even more angry at night. Just as with any disaster we will see robbery after the collapse of the economy. However, robbery and the murder associated with it will be at such a massive scale, as people scrounge for food, cash and valuables, local authorities will be overwhelmed.
You might die at the hands of a robber. Or you might die at the hands of a home owner. Remember, it only takes one robbery while you are at work to steal all your stored food and supplies. Then you will be one of the desperate, as well.
Another hot new market will be kidnapping. If you have any money or influence you can bet you are going to be targeted for ransom. Kidnapping for ransom is a popular practice in places like Mexico. It’s a tool of the cartels. The radical Mideast and African Muslims also use it to fund their failing Jihad.
There is no telling just how bad life can get for you if you get kidnapped and your family does not have the money to pay the ransom. It won’t be a fun way to go.
As the nation dives deeper into collapse, we will see important infrastructure fall along with it. Trash collection, water treatment and waste management in general will come to a halt. The pests and disease that will come next will undoubtedly be the biggest killer of all.
Human waste and pests will spread disease like wild fire and there will be no doctors to help.
Large scale agriculture will stop. Farmers are already shutting down operations left and right due to the low profit margins. If government subsidies stopped, it would literally be impossible to afford. That means the world would face widespread starvation or the American heartland might even be occupied by foreign nations that handle food production.
#6. Hospital Blackout
The high-risk population of those hooked up to machines at the hospital will also be in grave danger. While hospitals have backup generators, they run on fuel and when that fuel runs out all those machines will go out.
A hospital blackout, for those in places like the ICU is a certain death sentence. It’s scary but it’s a very real situation that could come from the blackouts associated with an economic crisis.
#7. Desperate Hordes
Those who survive will be nothing but desperate, starving people who have seen and done most anything to stay alive. These people will be very different from the early rioters. They will do whatever it takes to stay alive.
#8. On The Bugout
Maybe you were one of the smart people who saw all this coming. You could have escaped to a remote bugout location that was stocked with food, water and resources to start a life of self-sufficiency. You might exist in peace, for a while, till some people start to notice your situation. The thing we all worry about in the remote bugout is that you can be quickly overpowered by a larger group and there is no one out there to help you.
#9. Martial Law
If the government or, worse, the international community tries to regain order, they will create some form of martial law. They will try to instill curfew, order and confiscate guns. If this happens late in the game, it will basically be a war between those imposing order and those unwilling to comply.
Even if you aren’t fighting in this war you could become a civilian casualty.
#10. Lack of Medications
A large percentage of Americans are on meds that they take daily. Things like blood pressure meds to insulin for controlling blood sugar levels. What about all those people on bi polar, anti-schizophrenics and anti-depressants.
During an economic collapse the movement and production of medications will come to a halt. That means all those who need that kind of help will have to self-medicate however they can or die. Are you one of those Americans on medications? Is there someone you love who is?
When Does It All Begin?
The answer is: Now.
Maybe the riots don’t start now. Maybe the markets don’t completely crash, right now. However, you can start preparing right now.
Forget about everything else and focus on preparedness. Take small steps each week or month to get yourself in a better position. Food, water, backup power, security, first aid and evacuation are some great places to start.
Maybe its economic collapse or maybe its something else. The reality is, we cannot live on eternal prosperity. What you prepare for today will decide how you survive the future.
