(TacticalNews.com) – After a large-scale disaster there are going to be a lot of items we miss from our everyday lives. There may be a shortage of medicine and basic staples such as sugar. Thankfully, nature has provided a way to replace both to an extent.
Before we get started, this information isn’t medical advice; you should always consult your doctor before making any medical decisions. With the disclaimer out of the way, let’s take a look at honey and its many uses. This natural substance comes from bees, and it’s even sweeter than sugar. It’s also healthier, despite its higher calorie content, as Doctor Oz describes in the video below.
Honey’s usefulness doesn’t stop there. It reportedly can also work as an antibacterial or an antibiotic, helping fend off infections. On top of that, the antioxidant-rich flavor enhancer can give you a boost of energy. Honey may also reduce nausea, soothe sore throats and suppress coughs.
For thousands of years, people used honey in many ways aside from simply sweetening their drinks. The potential medicinal properties have made it a staple to survivalists around the world, just as it was for our ancestors. Remember, however, that you shouldn’t give honey to children under one year old as it contains bacteria that can lead to infant botulism.
Another item many of us will miss if society goes belly-up is coffee. Be sure to check out these coffee substitutes so you won’t be without that dark cup of heaven after SHTF. You can even use honey in these substitutes to ease a sweet tooth!
