Preparation taking into consideration the unavailability of doctors, Vaidyas, hospitals, etc. during the adverse times

During natural calamities such as floods, earthquakes transport systems collapse, making it difficult to procure medicines and other necessary items. During War, stock of medicines is used for the army on priority. This creates a shortage of medicines. Hence, it is crucial to buy the medicines required for the family before the advent of adverse times.

Consult a doctor or a Vaidya (Ayurvedic doctor) and find out common medicines for ailments and in what quantities they should be bought; so also, which medicines to buy for the future to treat common ailments.

Information on the usage of Ayurvedic and Homeopathic medicines which are readily available in the market to treat simple ailments in daily life is provided in Sanatan’s Text series – ‘Lifeline during the adverse times’.

Anticipating the shortage of medicines during the coming adverse times, we can cultivate Ayurvedic medicinal plants (which will be useful in treating many ailments) on the terrace of our house, courtyard, etc. This will prevent suffering that may arise due to non-availability of medicines.
