Clear out your medicine chest and replace with natural first aid tools

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Consumers are being advised to clear out their medicine chests and throw away expired prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications, but the real story is that people should be stocking their medicine chests with natural herbal first aid tools: they're far more effective than drugs, and they're far cheaper to stock as well.

Which ones am I talking about? Aloe vera is the #1 first aid tool, and every household should be growing aloe vera for emergencies: burns especially. The cactus is also good for cuts, scrapes, bug bites, and digestive disorders (by eating the gel).

Cayenne tincture is another herbal healer: cayenne pepper tincture stops bleeding, takes away the pain of arthritis, opens the breathing passages in asthmatics, revives people who are unconscious, alleviates chest pain due to heart disease, improves circulation to local areas and works all sorts of additional wonders.
