Dentists are scary places to visit, even as an adult, they cause you pain and can cost a fortune if you don’t have dental insurance.
In modern times people can really get worked up over dental work. Most of which include a numbing needle that makes all the pain disappear.
What if SHTF and you had no access to a dentist? What if you found yourself in an emergency situation and you had a toothache? Chances are you would feel so bad your morale would be nonexistent. If you experienced such an infection where a tooth needed to be removed you are going to experience a new platitude of pain.
Fortunately, there is a quick fix for toothache which a lot of people have been using to get by until they can go see a dentist figure out the root cause of the toothache.
The humble clove might be something you are used to seeing stud a ham on the holidays. There is no way that you would ever imagine clove being such a powerful impactor of your teeth and tooth pain.
Antibacterial, antioxidant, anesthetic and anti-inflammatory properties abound in this essential oil. It’s a must-have for tooth pain and the like.
You cannot sleep on dental preparedness. In an SHTF situation, a tooth infection can kill you and it will not be a good way to go. Your face will balloon up and the pain will be excruciating. If you study what dentistry was like in the 18th century you will cringe.
That could come back in a hurry. Now is the time to get teeth issues taken care of and to put away tools that can help your teeth stay healthy.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
