We can learn a lot about how to survive hard times from the early settlers, wouldn’t you say?
I mean, we talk about surviving a disaster like a major blackout… grocery stores being looted during civil breakdown… and hospitals being overwhelmed and unable to provide healthcare during a wide-scale medical crisis.
But the early pioneers didn’t even HAVE electricity… grocery stores… or hospitals, right?
In fact, if you got sick on the frontier, oftentimes there was no doctor… no medicine… and you had to rely on “mother nature” to bring you back to health. Well…
Here’s 1 “Frontier Survival Medicine Hack” When You’re Forced To Be Your Own Doctor During A Crisis…
Ok, this is one of the simplest “pioneer at-home remedies” you can use and it has a TON of uses, including:
- “Cures” colds
- Heals infected wounds
- Gets rid of urinary tract infections
- Dissolves kidney stones
- Relieves arthritis
- And a ton of other medicinal uses!
So what is this “miracle remedy” from the frontier days?
Apple Cider Vinegar!
I know… simple, right?
But the medical proof behind its effectiveness is pretty damn extensive and it was a powerful remedy in the pioneer backcountry.
And it’s really simple to make yourself too…
How To Make Your Own “Frontier Survival Vinegar”…
Of course the easiest thing to do is just hoard away some store-bought apple cider vinegar in your survival food stockpile.
If you don’t have any, add it to your list.
Just be sure to get an organic, unfiltered version that contains the “mother” which is strands of proteins, enzymes and friendly bacteria (it will look “murky” with a cobweb-like appearance).
But if our country is in serious “collapse” doo-doo and you run out, here’s how to make it yourself…
- Take the peels and cores of 5 apples (Note: Apples will be one of the most common foods to find at government aid centers during a crisis!)
- Add 2-4 pints of water
- Mash it all in a large container
- Add 1 cup of sugar
- Age for 2 days in container
- Pour into glass bottles and let set for 2 weeks
That’s all there is to it. Now…
Here’s How To USE Apple Cider Vinegar For Frontier Survival Medicine…
The best way to stay healthy and take advantage of the vinegar’s powerful effects is simply to drink it.
I recommend working up to 2 Tablespoons a day in water (you can add a little honey also) for general health and – if you have any condition during a crisis – go up to 3 Tbsp a day.
There are many other uses for vinegar and ways to take it – way too many to go into here – but the cool thing is that you don’t need to wait for a crisis to beging reaping its rewards.
I drink 2-4 tablespoons a day and have more energy… sleep better… and I haven’t had so much as a cold in years.
You can even use it in a “poultice” to put on infected wounds.
(Poultices are just one of the many “lost secrets” from the frontier days that could literally save your life in a major crisis. These and other secrets are covered in detail in the “pioneer survival guide” I’ve told you about before.)
Being your own “frontier doctor” is just one of the skills you may be forced to use in case of a wide-scale blackout… financial collapse… pandemic quarantine… or any other disaster that severely challenges our infrastructure and makes you go “off the grid” for a time.
Learn from the generations before us and master these skills now… BEFORE you need to put them into use.
