The number one killer in a SHTF event will be infection and disease. In a grid down, SHTF event, the entire medical support system will collapse. In the aftermath of such a collapse, medical attention through previously normal channels is highly likely to be unavailable and, may be unavailable for years… 

Every retreat needs medical supplies, first-aid training and printed reference materials.

The very first medical barrier to disease is basic hygiene. Soap and water are critical. A clean environment is a medical necessity.

Before you buy supplies, educate yourself.

Widely available, the Survival MD Program is essential information.

Supplies:

One of the most important medical supplies and nearly impossible to obtain are antibiotics. If antibiotics are available, the likelihood of surviving severe trauma will be significantly greater. Reportedly, Fish & Bird Antibiotics are a viable substitute, being essentially the same as doctor prescribed antibiotics. 

In the aftermath of a grid down event, insulin will become unavailable. A long term grid down event will be a death sentence for those on insulin. Sugar substitutes will be vital for diabetics who do not need insulin and those merely hypoglycemic. Consumption of naturally low glycemic foods will help to maintain health.

 Something as mundane as bug/mosquito repellent can be a God send. Repel and Eco Defense Bug Spray are reportedly effective natural repellents. IMO, Deet is to be avoided but it is widely available and highly effective. An effective battery powered mosquito repellent device… compliments repellent sprays. Use it in combination with your bug spray and increase the effectiveness of both.
