Hello, Rob Raskin here, and this week I’d like to talk about medications any prepper needs in their disaster kit. If the SHTF or in an TEOTWAWKI situation, you are going to end up getting sick. There’s just no way around it, especially when sanitation becomes an issue. If you want to stay safe and protect your family, it’s crucial that you have a well-stocked medicine chest. Be aware of information like expiration dates and how things should be stored, and if there is any specific medication you or a family member requires, keep plenty of it on-hand.


Colloidal Silver

This l natural antibiotic has many uses, as it is also antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial. No known disease-causing organism can live when it is exposed to colloidal silver, even in trace amounts. You may have heard bad things about it because the FDA has not approved it, but it is a powerful addition that should be in any prepper’s medicine cabinet, as it can be used to soothe burns, to treat boils and ringworm, to get rid of warts, to minimize scarring, and to help heal a number of other ailments of the skin, and when you don’t have any other antibiotics available you can also turn to this substance.



Americans tend not to be used to dealing with much pain because we have this powerful painkiller and many others available over the counter, and we hardly think twice before we use it. Pain is an unavoidable fact of life, however, and if the worst should happen and there is no store around where you can buy aspirin, you will quickly come to realize how much you relied on it! One thing many people don’t know about aspirin is you can use it topically. You can rub it directly on bug bites or bee stings for quick relief.


Activated Charcoal Tablets

Activated charcoal tablets are not the same as barbecue charcoal, so don’t think you can buy a bag of Kingsford to use in a medical emergency! This comes in capsule form, and it is incredibly versatile due to its high absorption properties. You can use this to treat gas, for emergency toxin removal, to reduce your cholesterol, and even to whiten your teeth. When disaster strikes and you are still able to look great because your smile is nice and white, tell them to thank Rob Raskin! I am kidding, of course, but survival is no joke, so make sure your first aid kit is well stocked!
