Are Fish Antibiotics A Safe Alternative For Preppers?
Before we start, here’s the Modern Survival blog’s disclaimer and warning on this subject and it works for me too.
“Disclaimer: Nothing in this article constitutes medical advice. It is for information purposes only. It is not meant to diagnose or treat any disease. Never take any medication that was not prescribed specifically for you by your physician. Hopefully, this information can help you be a more informed and involved patient. Short of a true post-SHTF scenario, I strongly advise you not to self-diagnose and treat.”
Bottom line – Yes, But…
Modern Survival Blog has a post on this very important subject. I don’t know how restricted you are to buying antibiotics over the counter in America, but here in the UK you are very restricted. So, if you’re wanting to stockpile some antibiotics, Fish Antibiotics may be the way to go.
The Modern Survival blog contains this list of antibiotics and their fish” alternatives. Here’s just a sample:
Today, penicillin is only used as first choice for one infection– strep throat. That’s it.
A good choice for strep throat, sinus infections, ear infections, some urinary tract infections, pneumonia, meningitis.
Amoxicillin is used for basically the same infections as ampicillin with the addition of being effective against lyme disease and stomach ulcers. A probable first choice to have this one of the three penicillin’s.”
There’s more at their site and a link to where you can buy them.
And here’s a video by my favourite YouTube medical nurse, The Patriot Nurse, on fish antibiotics.
Now you can see why I said, “Yes, but…”.
