How to prepare your family to survive and thrive in todays uncertain world

The Plague Strikes

Great_plague_of_london-1665Well it was probably inevitable with all of these kids, but a couple of them brought home the plague that’s going around.  A full on flu.  Joyous.

My folks were sick for weeks with this.  We’re hoping that this is a less … severe strain, but we’ll see.

In any case, things are looking awfully dicy for the health status of the Kearney household.  Here’s hoping that most of us don’t end up with it.

Of course we can just head down to town and get medication to help with the symptoms, and medical care if need be.

But what if we couldn’t head down?  Maybe we’re snowed in, or maybe there’s some social problem that prevents us from leaving the house.

Well, the usual remedies are important.  Plenty of water, plenty of rest.

Taking Vitamin C and either fresh garlic or garlic extract in pill form helps.

Ibuprofen or tylenol will help with aches and pains and fever.

If vomiting is an issue (or the other end, for that matter) then either use an over the counter electrolyte solution, or make your own … 1 quart water, 8 Tsp sugar, 1 tsp salt.  Heat the water, dissolve salt/sugar, cool, and drink.

You’ll note that there’s lots of stuff up there that you might want to have squirreled away for a plaguey day.  So take this opportunity to look at your medical preps and make sure you can deal with the little things.   After all, they’re the most likely to impact you.

Besides, if you’ve got everything you need at home, who cares if you can’t leave?

  1. I am sorry your family is “one of the chosen” – please, if you wish, check out Del-Immune V and Collodial Silver – two things we are never without and (knock knock knock on wood) we are never ill. Get better and prayers and thoughts are with you.

  2. Elderberry syrup seems to shorten the illness considerably at our house and the taste really isn’t bad. In addition, as long as you have an elderberry bush it’s easy to make!

  3. Sorry to hear that you are ill, yes children are the carriers. I am so thankful I no longer work in a school setting. It is the harbinger of the plague along with other items I hate to think about.

    I had the flu so bad as a child nothing stayed down my dad gave me a swallow of whiskey, an told me when I was through throwing it up the would end the cycle of the throwing up and the running for the bathroom(old recipe-1930-50’s), it worked. After it burned out the virus in my stomach I was able to eat. If you were to give it to your children now a days you would go to jail, but if it ever comes to no doctor you have this as a back up.

    It also makes you dislike the taste and smell of the stuff………..even many years later. Take my word for it.
