Survival Guides – Natural First Aid Kit

Survival Guides - Natural First Aid KitWe have been asked numerous times to make an inventory of natural, effective first aid items for campers, survivalists, and militia organizations. These are our recommendations for those during a survival situation. Several of them can be used on an easy camping trip, but this is aimed at longer-term situations in which different medical facilitate may not be available.

  • Activated Charcoal (Activated Carbon) – Even thought drugs uses activated carbon to neutralize poisons. It’s an remedy for arsenic, mercury, pesticides, strychnine, warfarin, hemlock, E. Coli, gasoline, and over 4,000 chemicals, drugs, plant and microbic toxins, allergens, venoms, and wastes. It may be used for venomous snake and spider bites. Thus, taking it on any extended trip in the wild is extremely wise. It’s to be dampened before being taken internally (about one teaspoon) and placed directly onto the wounds dampened. Remember that activated charcoal is much less effective against alcohols and cyanide.
  • Bentonite Clay – Following exposure to snake bites, activated charcoal can only be helpful for the first four hours. Following that, bentonite clay ought to be applied on to the wound site, because it has an interesting ability to draw out toxins. The internet is riddled with people who have saw having had wonderful results with bentonite clay following snake and spider bites, but of course, results will vary with every case. Buy it now, because it’s low cost, but it will be difficult to obtain.
  • Cayenne – Besides improving the flavor of a range of dishes, cayenne could be a miraculous herbal medicine. It can stop a heart attack within minutes, and was historically applied to open wounds for another purpose. Cayenne seems to be ready to stop bleeding shortly when applied locally. it’s been theorized that it does so by shrinking blood vessels, however there are no official studies so far on this use. Old and new therapist books claim that cayenne can stop the bleeding in below ten seconds. It doesn’t produce a burning sensation as most people would assume. Ten seconds is quicker than any pharmaceutical, thus cayenne ought to be extensively studied for its life-saving applications. In the meantime, it’s a great item to include in any first aid kit.
  • Ginger – Nausea and vomiting can create some of the most basic tasks very difficult, and in fact, it causes seemingly endless suffering. It occurs more often within the wild as a result of gastrointestinal disorder. Preventing nausea often means preventing dehydration, therefore ginger is another life-saver. It’s currently suggested as a ‘complementary’ medical aid for those undergoing chemotherapy, in order to quell nausea. Thus ginger’s efficacy has been well verified. Ginger can be control in the mouth for fast absorption. This can be a helpful technique whenever nothing can be retained in the stomach. Ginger also can facilitate to stop diarrhea.
  • Colloidal Silver – Silver is without doubt one of the best anti-bacterial and anti-viral substances available. It can thus be used to make water safer to drink, while not causing major blood vessel harm like chlorine. Remember that it’ll not kill most parasites. For emergency water, a water filter designed to get rid of parasites can be used, and so silver should be added to the filtered water 15 minutes before its use. Of course, we always suggest boiling the water if at all possible, and it’s also to make a large quantity of safe water beforehand, just in case there’s an emergency. Colloidal silver will facilitate anyone who has become sick with almost any sickness. Take two tablespoons each few hours. It’s better and safer than antibiotics in each category. Colloidal silver is the best burn remedy in existence. It’s for this reason that it’s still utilized in burn centers. Its utility extends to sunburns. Using a cotton swap, rub colloidal silver over the burnt skin, and wait for it to absorb. Mix colloidal silver with alittle quantity of sea salt inside of spring water to make an efficient eye wash. The salt will create the silver solution closer to that of human tears, and therefore, it’ll minimize burning sensations. It has to be made in a eye dropper bottle beforehand, because there’s no time in an eye emergency. We always keep some prepared in our house, and it kills red eyes in a matter of minutes.
  • Iodine – Iodine may be a life safer for deep wounds. It penetrates deeply to kill all infectious bacterium. Wound infections should be prevented, therefore apply iodine generously to any injury that breaks the skin on a daily basis, till the wound has scabbed over. The iodine can boost the immune system, and promote fast healing too.
  • Echinacea – Echinacea was the very 1st herb to be known as “snake oil”, because it had been known to neutralize venoms before herbs became a threat to the medical business. Use it orally in large doses following a venomous bite, and topically mix it into the bentonite clay that was mentioned earlier. Echinacea also can be taken alongside colloidal silver if a member of the party becomes sickened. It provides a boost to the immune system, and it’s a good anti-viral.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar – While not as important as different items on this list, apple cider vinegar includes a variety of uses. It will quickly eliminate indigestion, heartburn, sunburns (in combination with silver), and may sometimes help with headaches.
  • Chamomile – This herb is good for quickly eliminating insect bites. Chamomile may be purchased in capsule form, and the capsules should be opened and mixed with vodka before directly applying to insect bites. It’s an anti-histamine, and may therefore suppress allergic reactions. Remember that it’s additionally a gentle sedative, so chamomile is the Benadyrl of the wildlife. For max result against insect bites, a solution of it really needs to be made well in advance. Chamomile could be a relative of ragweed and should be used with caution in people who suffer from ragweed allergies. If any allergic symptoms occur, then discontinue.
  • Anti-Inflammatories – The discomfort caused by sprains and alternative trauma injuries may be alleviated with natural anti-inflammatories. Devil’s Claw, cherry concentrate, and MSM are the foremost effective for injuries. Devil’s Claw has been shown in studies to be more practical than vioxx. MSM may be a source of sulfur that has been repeatedly shown in analysis to assist with each join pain and injury-related inflammation.
  • Opium, cannabis (marijuana) – While illegal in most areas of the planet, these herbs are ideal for pain relief. As written previously, the establishment’s rigorous management over these herbs is meant to keep us reliant on its system, because enough pain will force anyone to check a doctor. Cannabis is good for gentle to medium pain relief and nausea, while opium is required for suppressing extreme pain. It’d be wise to include these pain-killing herbs into a first aid kit, but remember that we cannot advise readers about the obvious legal implications.
  • Bandages – An essential part of any good first aid kit.
  • Needles, tweezers – These two items can help with small injuries such as splinters, and generally come in handy.
  • Phone Numbers – Any good first aid kit will contain phone numbers to a nearby hospital, poison control center, and any other people that you might need to contact in an emergency.
