How to Survive Without the Pharmacy
Following an emergency or the all-out collapse of society and TEOTWAWKI, medical care and access to pharmaceuticals can become scarce or altogether nonexistent. While this might not be an immediate concern to those who are young, fit and accustomed to enjoying the vitality and good health so common to youth, not everyone can take their health for granted like that. For many people, whether they’re children of a year or grandparents nearing a hundred, medical care is necessary to treat chronic or acute health problems, often with life-threatening consequences.
From high blood pressure, hypertension, and type II diabetes to arthritis, chronic pain, and Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, there are many common health issues you may need to address. Then there are the common issues such as seasonal cold and flu, cuts, bruises, burns and scrapes as well as allergies, fungal and viral infections, bacterial infections, etc. For all these ailments, most people rely on modern medicine, whether by prescription or over-the-counter.
Indeed, when we talk about modern medicine, it’s important to remember that we’re not just talking about hospitals or clinics and pharmacies all loaded with prescription medication. During a crisis, it may be a simple over-the-counter medication you need, like Tylenol or Benadryl or even Imodium, but you’ll be lucky if you can find it at all and luckier still if you have something you can trade for it when you need it.
Under ideal circumstances, you’ve already stockpiled enough over-the-counter medication to get you and your family through 4 – 6 months or more. If you or a loved one takes any prescription medication for a life-threatening ailment, try to get extra prescriptions from the doctor to keep a 90 – 120 day supply (or more) of such necessary medications.
Oftentimes attaining extra prescriptions can be problematic for patients, and sometimes medication simply doesn’t last very long, but in either case you will eventually run out of medication if a crisis or disaster lasts long enough. What then? For many people, that may simply be the end of the line. Unfortunately, there are a lot of serious health conditions, and when the medication runs out there are a lot of people with heart disease, respiratory problems, diabetes or other illnesses that will quickly spiral out of control and lead to death.
There will even be people succumbing to malnutrition, opportunistic infections, common diseases and blood poisoning that sets in from infected wounds. You don’t have to be among those people. Not only can you stock up now on common over-the-counter medications (think Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Benadryl and Imodium, etc.) but you can also stockpile antibiotics legally and without a prescription.
A little known fact that has gained increasing popularity in recent years is that many of the medications sold in farm supply stores and at vets around the country (and online) are identical to the medications handed out by pharmacists for human use. Common examples include many aquatic lines of antibiotics that are marketed for fish (with off-label instruction for dosing cats and dogs as well) such as FishMox (amoxicillin) and FishPen (penicillin). You don’t need a prescription to purchase these medications, and to verify the content you can enter the unique pill code (imprinted on each pill) into a free USP (U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention) directory online.
Best of all, however, you can arm yourself with knowledge about the aids and remedies that exist in nature. With a long history of use in folk medicine and traditional Chinese as well as Indian medicine, many herbs and plants have centuries of anecdotal evidence for their efficacy, while modern science has begun to catch up and confirm much of this ancient knowledge.
For high blood pressure, hypertension, and cardiovascular diseases or disorders of the heart, there are a number of recommended herbs, including:
Hawthorn has a long history of use as a tonic for the heart and cardiovascular system. Leaves and berries can be used dried or fresh to steep fresh tea for drinking; hawthorn is known for lowering blood cholesterol levels, inducing restful sleep, reducing blood pressure and relieving the pain associated with angina.
Cinnamon in doses as low as 2 – 6 grams per day has been shown to lower LDL cholesterol levels by anywhere from 10% – 30%+ in as little as 40 days. In addition to reducing LDL levels, cinnamon also regulates blood glucose levels.
Beets are enormously healthy for the cardiovascular system and the heart in general. Eaten raw, cooked into your meals, or shredded and juiced to be drunk, beets are a nutritious and super healthy option for strengthening your heart.
For chronic pain, arthritis, and other inflammatory disorders, some of the top natural remedies include:
Turmeric or more specifically curcumin has been shown to have immense potency as an anti-inflammatory agent and has long been used as a treatment for arthritis and other inflammatory disorders in Chinese and Indian medicine.
Topical application of a poultice, ointment or balm containing cayenne, jalapeno, habanero, or other hot pepper may relieve pain associated with inflammation.
Honey has been used for thousands of years for its potency as an antibacterial, antifungal and antibiotic agent; honey can be applied topically to wounds to speed healing and aid in keeping the wound clean, and can also be taken internally in doses of 1 – 3 tablespoons per day for its anti-inflammatory effects. A particularly popular remedy for arthritis is to mix 1 tablespoon of honey with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and take 1 – 3 times a day.
When antibiotics are unavailable but needed, you can turn again to nature for several very potent replacements. Some of the best antibiotics in nature include:
Garlic is the source of a potent compound known as allicin, but garlic doesn’t actually contain any allicin until it is crushed or cut. After being crushed or cut, an enzyme in garlic (allinase) comes into contact with a compound called alliin and then allicin is formed. Allicin breaks down very quickly, so fresh garlic should be eaten soon after crushing or cutting it. Garlic is very safe for internal consumption in most people, but should be used carefully in topical applications due to its ability to burn skin.
Honey was mentioned briefly for chronic pain, inflammation and arthritis, but deserves a mention here as well, on account of its ancient history and use as a topical antiseptic, antibiotic and healing aid. Due to its antibacterial properties, honey has even been used in some hospitals to contain the spread of MRSA; pretty impressive for the product of bees.
Tea tree oil is extracted from a tree native to Australia, so you probably won’t find it after SHTF, but if you can stock up on it beforehand, tea tree is reasonably affordable and is a potent antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agent that promotes healing. Natives of Australia have used tea tree oil and poultices made from the bark of the tree for centuries and recent science has corroborated much of the anecdotal evidence.
In addition to the healing benefits of the plants listed above, there are many herbs and common garden plants that are either edible and/or can be steeped into health-promoting teas. Practically all common kitchen herbs, from peppermint, lemon balm and sage to rosemary, thyme and oregano have medicinal benefits of their own and can be steeped into pleasing teas. Meanwhile, during sick spells a touch of ginger tea or some chamomile tea with honey can do wonders.
These are just some of the many remedies available from nature. No doubt, you probably know a few traditional old remedies you picked up over the years or learned from your grandparents; feel free to share your suggestions and knowledge in the comments below.

What Does GOD Say About DRINKING?
(Galatians 5:19-21) “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, Fornicators, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envying’s, murders, (DRUNKENNESS), revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things (SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD)”
(1 Corinthians 6:9-10) “Do you not know that the unrighteous (WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD?) Do not be deceived. Neither Fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor (DRUNKARDS), nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
(Matthew 24:48-51) “But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming’ and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and (DRINK WITH THE DRUNKARDS), the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth”
(Judges 13:4) “Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and (DRINK NOT WINE NOR STRONG DRINK), and eat not any unclean thing”
(Ephesians 5:18) “And (BE NOT DRUNK WITH WINE), wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit”
(Habakkuk 2:15) “Woe unto him that (GIVETH HIS NEIGHBOR DRINK, THAT PUTTEST THY BOTTLE TO HIM, AND MAKEST HIM DRUNKEN ALSO), that thou mayest look on their nakedness!”
(Isaiah 5:22) “Woe to men mighty at (DRINKING WINE), Woe to men valiant for (MIXING INTOXICATING DRINK)”
(Proverbs 20:1) “(WINE IS A MOCKER, STRONG DRINK IS A BRAWLER), And whoever is led astray by it is not wise”
(1 Corinthians 6:19-20) “What? know ye not that (YOUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY GHOST) which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore (GLORIFY GOD IN YOUR BODY, AND IN YOUR SPIRIT), which are God’s”
(Romans 8:1) “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, (WHO WALK NOT AFTER THE FLESH), but after the Spirit.”
(2 Corinthians 5:17) “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, (HE IS A NEW CREATION; OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY); behold, all things have become new”
(Mark 9:43-48) “If (YOUR HAND CAUSES YOU TO SIN), cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched where ‘Their worm does not die And the fire is not quenched.’ And if (YOUR FOOT CAUSES YOU TO SIN), cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame, rather than having two feet, to be cast into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched where ‘Their worm does not die, And the fire is not quenched.’ And if (YOUR EYE CAUSES YOU TO SIN), pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire where ‘Their worm does not die And the fire is not quenched.”
It’s true that we often find people drinking alcohol in the Bible and that Scripture speaks of alcoholic beverages, but we need to be careful not to read too much into a superficial look at such texts. When our English Old Testaments refer to alcohol, they generally use the words wine or strong drink. So any examination of the Old Testament’s attitude toward alcohol must take into account the different Hebrew words translated into these two English terms. The term strong drink presents no major translation problems because only one Hebrew word, shekar, lies behind it. But even so, the translation strong drink is more general than it ought to be. Modern readers may well think of strong drink as distilled liquor. But that is not what the Bible means by the term shekar. Since the process of distilling alcohol did not develop until around A.D. 500, the strongest alcoholic beverage people could make in Bible times contained only 14 percent alcohol by volume, approximately the maximum produced by natural fermentation. This fact tells us that the scriptural term strong drink certainly gives us no license to drink what we know today as hard liquor.
Both the main Hebrew word for wine and the Greek word for wine can mean either fermented grape juice or intoxicating wine. The English word wine originally had two meanings also unfermented juice or alcoholic drink. In the Bible, verses that show God approves of wine are speaking about unfermented juice. Verses that expose the evils of wine are speaking about intoxicating wine. The Bible says the strong drink is evil. It is not just the amount one drinks that makes drinking a sin. God condemns the drink itself. As a disciple of Christ which is also known as a Christian; living for God Is all about dying to one self & crucifying the flesh daily so that we are living our lives holy & righteous to be pleasing to him in this sinful & wicked world. We are to live in complete obedience to Him & His word. This is the (STRAIGHT & NARROW PATH) which is being referred to that only a (FEW) find. God’s word makes it crystal clear that if one continues to live in willful, un-repented sin they will perish. It doesn’t matter if one claims to be a Christian or even a good person. Sin is sin & it separates us from God. Jesus commands us as Christians to repent & to stop sinning when we become saved & accept him into our hearts making him the Lord of our life. Our lives as Christians are to be a living witness to others. We cannot break the laws of God without hindering others from coming to Christ.
(Matthew 7:13-14) “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and (DIFFICULT IS THE WAY) which leads to life, and there are (FEW) who find it.”
(Luke 13:24) “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in (MEANING HEAVEN), and shall not be able”
Full Definition of STRIVE 1 : to devote serious effort or energy : endeavor <strive to finish a project> 2 : to struggle in opposition : contend
(Matthew 7:21) “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, (BUT HE WHO DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER) which is in heaven”
(Romans 12:2) “And (DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD), but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
(John 15:19) “If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because (YOU ARE NOT OF THE WORLD), but I chose you out of the world, (THEREFORE THE WORLD HATES YOU).”
(James 4:4) “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that (FRIENDSHIP WITH THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD?) Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world (MAKES HIMSELF AN ENEMY OF GOD).”

What do UFO’s and Vlad the Vampire have in common?
First. we will read the article. I places it here because it’s important to the theme and outcome. Then, we will see how these items connect to the modern day events happening now…and why.
A STRANGE disc pouring smoke and hovering over buildings has been found in a monastery wall painting thought to date from the 16th century — and UFO researchers claim it is just one of many old paintings which seem to show evidence of visitors from another world.
The image is painted on the wall on a 14th century church in Sighisoara — thought to the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, the historical figure on whom the Dracula legend is based.
The photograph was taken by a tourist, Catalina Borta, and sent to UFO experts at the Israeli Extraterrestrials and UFOs Research Organization (EURA).
The caption on the painting says, ‘Israel, put your hope in the Lord,’ and the image is thought to date from just after 1523, when the Bible was first translated into German.
UFO experts have drawn a comparison with other well-known paintings which seem to depict flying saucers, such as the 1710 painting Baptism of Christ by Aert de Gelder.
Nigel Watson, author of the Haynes UFO Investigations Manual, says “flying saucers, UFOs and other weird objects in the sky have been depicted throughout the history of humanity.”
“What appear to be UFOs and aliens appear in the cave paintings of ancient man, the religious paintings of the Renaissance period and in the works of chroniclers and storytellers.
“Some of the most striking UFO images appear in Renaissance art. As an example, a painting titled The Crucifixion depicts two spherical flying craft that plainly have a pilot inside them. It is of 1350 vintage and hangs over the altar in the Visoki Decani Monestry, Yugoslavia.’
“In the 15th Century, The Madonna with Saint Giovannio, the artist, Domenico Ghirlandaio, depicts a disc-like craft with rays shooting out of it over the left shoulder of Mary. A man with a dog behind Mary are shown looking at this aerial object.”
“The Baptism of Christ painted by Aert De Gelder in 1710 is a stunning vision of a circular craft beaming rays of light that illuminate Jesus and John the Baptist. It can be viewed at the Fitzwiliam Museum Cambridge.
“An explanation for these Biblical paintings is that they are symbolic representations of angels and that the beams of light from them represent the Holy Spirit. These beams of light can also represent the miraculous impregnation of Mary that led to the birth of Jesus. Ironically, people today are literally seeing objects like this in the sky and associate their activities with the concept of ancient astronauts that it is speculated, we worshipped as Gods in the past.”
Certainly, symbolism and artistic license is at work but whether they are based on ‘real’ sightings or belief in UFOs from other realms, or not, they still give us a sense of wonder and have a powerful impact on our psyche. END
Firstly, to me this painting SCREAMS the fact that the churches are infiltrated! Does it not?
This fresco is entitled “The crucifixion” and was painted in 1350. It is located at the Visoki Dicani Monestary in Kosovo, Yugoslavia
So many…so many of these paintings. Why do you think that is? I know exactly why that is! And people need to wake up to the truth of the matter. The church is infiltrated!
And if you investigate these paintings, you will see they originate with the Roman Catholic Church (RCC), or people secretly involved in the church system. Why would the church be involved? Because they have been infiltrated for centuries! I am currently reading, “Hostage to the Devil: The Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans” [Malachi Martin] -it has opened my eyes to many things. I don’t just read these kinds of materials for the ‘fun’ of it! GOD teaches me many things, that’s why HE leads me to certain material. And this article is but one of those items.
Malachi would openly discuss the fact that the church was infiltrated. And that they were worshiping a god, but not the same GOD we do. Also, Malachi would tell you there’s no such thing as a ghost! People die and leave, and the paranormal activity we see taking place originates with Satan.
The RCC is bringing forth a One World Religion. It will also be involved in the manifestation of Lucifer, and his many demons. These frontmen will come as Jesus and this is why we see the paintings and their reason for them. This is the false messiah and his demons.
First how does this connect to “VAMPIRES”? Because the Devil’s demons are blood-suckers. Literally and figuratively.
ALL, yes all of the strange creatures upon this earth that take the lives of GOD’s children are demons. I’m not talking about a creature which GOD created. Don’t be silly. I’m speaking of the creatures which cannot be explained. The creatures which hide in the darkness and snatch a person, only to kill them in the end.
Demons come in many shapes and forms. They are shape-shifters. They hide in the darkness because this is where they originate…from the dark side.
From elves, fairies and sprites, elementals, and Big Foot, to Lockness Monsters, and Vampires, Werewolves, and all the other strange things of the night…are demons.
There’s not many people who haven’t heard about Charles Manson. How does he fit into this? Because he will speak of the Ascended Masters! He was a Scientologist, and Hubbard was a hypnotist. Manson is said to be so dangerous that they keep a face mask over him when people are around him. They keep him very-well hidden in a place within the prison system with all the things he needs. They say anyone who comes into contact with him, if they look him directly in the eyes is hypnotized. Sounds like Vampire characteristics? Because it is. Anyone who is hypnotized by him directly kills another! Powerful, right? Dark arts!
He was connected to the Freemasons, and the Freemasons are behind the Ascended Masters which are connected to the RCC. http://www.aggressivechristianity.net/articles/Helter%20skelter.htm
Currently we have the increase of UFO activity which some are labeling as an “INVASION”. Well, this couldn’t be more true. And they’re not ‘aliens’.
It’s paralleling the demonic increase in possessions. It’s paralleling the increase in paranormal activity of all kinds. It’s paralleling the odd behavior in people which cannot be explained. But why?
We are close to the end scenario in which these creatures, beings and entities will actually manifest and remain that way. The book of Revelation speaks of it in detail. Why? Because it’s true, it’s coming and you had better be prepared because this will cause mens hearts to fail when it does take place. What we are seeing now is only a smidgen of what’s coming.
It’s not too late. Come to the REAL Jesus Christ. Accept Him as your Savior, and He will lead you to GOD, the Father and The Almighty.
This work given is in full acknowledgement of GOD and directed by Holy Spirit. Any and all use of the facts of the dark side are not an avenue meant to give any credit to them. In fact, all work is directly attributed to GODs Plan and to give HIM all the glory. Amen
Why Was Malachi Martin Maliciously Murdered?
Malachi Martin was a well known priest for the Roman Catholic Church. Originally ordained as a Jesuit priest, he became Professor of Palaeontology at the Vatican’s Pontifical Biblical Institute. From 1958 he served as secretary to Cardinal Bea during preparations for the Second Vatican Council. Disillusioned by reforms, he was released from certain of his Jesuit vows in 1964 and moved to New York City, where he later became an American citizen.
Martin said concerning the three secrets of the Virgin Mary as Queen of Heaven in Fátima in 1917, she mandated the Pope of 1960 to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart. The Russian Orthodox Church would then convert to Roman Catholicism. If the mandate were not followed, devastating war in the world and destruction inside the church (The Great Apostasy) would follow. He said that he stood outside the papal living quarters in 1960 whilst Pope John XXIII and Cardinal Bea and others were reading the document containing the third secret, and that, in order to assure Russian cooperation at the approaching Second Vatican Council, the Pope decided against the mandate. Later Paul VI and John Paul II decided against it for various reasons.
I believe the church realized that he was a danger to the organization and they relieved him of his duties, and then he resigned in his attachments to this entity.
“The Anti-Christ Revealed” Dr. Malachi Martin [link]
Malachi Martin Masterfully Murdered [link]
The most important event which Malachi speaks of, beside the FACT that the world is infiltrated with demonic activity; is the Fatima Secrets!
Why can’t Malachi speak of this secret?
Third Secret Of Fatima According To Fr. Malachi Martin [link]
Did you HEAR what he said? ABOVE OUR HEADS? This is a huge clue!
THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS? Spiritual…what does this mean? Total darkness? No light? This is spiritual? Place these three together…what does it imply? It is a time period when GOD will not be in the mind of man. The Light (GOD) will be out of the picture. And darkness (Satan) will be on the forefront. And spiritually, there has been no other time like the present which parallels this prophecy.
The day which Malachi cannot speak of is the return of the same events which took place on the famous Fatima.
The Vatican’s Millennia Secret – Lucifer literally in the Vatican [link]
PROOF! LUCIFER WORSHIPED IN VATICAN 2013! (TRUTHLIVES) [link]
I don’t believe he’s the Antichrist but I believe he will issue in the man of perdition. But, LISTEN to THIS:
Pope Francis Declares Himself the Antichrist and Lucifer “the Father” [link]
Malachi Martin talks about the 3rd Secret of Fatima and 3 Days [link]
The Third Secret of Fatima and Malachi Martin [link]
Make no mistake, it’s coming. He can’t speak of it outright, but he knew of its coming. I figured it out when I was doing research about Fatima. I realized that the ‘secrets’ this whole matter speaks of is not what’s already taken place but what’s coming.
They want you to believe it’s benevolent. They will even tell you it’s coming in 2017. According to their prophecies, they tell you it is coming on the 13th of a month, in 2017. I won’t even begin to tell you when, this is not my place. And many are awaiting the time when I will trip up and say something which will make me seem like I’m foretelling of Jesus Christ’s coming, but indeed this is the exact opposite. This is the foretelling of the coming of the Frontmen of the Antichrist, and then the Antichrist, himself.
Do you think this is a birthing of the Antichrist, through the church? I do. Here we see it in plain site! Lucifer with the Church, I think. I’m no one special. If you research the events of the apparitions, and Fatima…you will also come to the realization that they expect something to happen.
Malachi was murdered because he was a threat to the RCC. He knew what was coming, and in his numerous interviews and book…he came TOO close to revealing this secret.
Make no mistake. This is the final curtain call. Get your house in order. GET RIGHT WITH GOD. Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD will give you the Salvation you deserve. Give your life to Him. And not this wicked one the church will bring forth, he is the false messiah. Truth is stranger than fiction!
