Candida Yeast Infections by servantheart
The subject ain’t pretty…but you need to know this!
Skin fungus. We’d like to think we’d never have them. But, the truth is, I currently DO have one. I live in a part of the world that stays hot and humid more often than not. And post-IHTF, these nuisance skin conditions may very well become even more common, most likely in the form of foot [...]

How to make injectable Lidocaine HCL
Almost every other prepper / survivalist that I’ve met shares a similar “hope for the best, but prepare for the worst” philosophy about life. If this pretty much describes you too, than you’ve probably considered a SHTF situation where, with no access to doctors or dentists, you might be forced to perform some type of minor surgery at home. Draining an abscess or pulling a tooth maybe. These are common minor surgeries, but with no [...]

Now that cold and flu season is upon us, people are wondering how they can keep themselves healthy, or get rid of their annoying illness, in a more natural way. Many people avoid cold and flu medicines due to their sleep inducing effects. If you are looking for ways to treat yourself in a more natural way, it’s important that you understand what will help you and what is just hype.
If you don’t take an Omega 3 supplement, what [...]

This article originally appeared at http://www.doomandbloom.net/2012/10/new-evidence-on-expiration-dates-2.html. The information is extremely relevant to all of Rourke’s Patriots for consideration in their preparations.
Over the years, I have expressed my opinions on the bogus nature of the expiration dates stamped on medications in pill or capsule form. I have cited the findings of the Shelf Life Extension Program, a program meant to investigate the possible usefulness of the millions of doses of various expired medications stockpiled by [...]

How to Extract a Tooth
Many of our readers are often surprised that a medical doctor and nurse devote a portion of their writing to dental issues. Few people who are otherwise medically prepared seem to devote much time to dental health. History, however, tells us that problems with teeth take up a significant portion of the medic’s patient load. In the Vietnam War, medical personnel noted that fully half of those who reported to daily [...]

I mountain bike.
I also just severely damaged in my right hand, middle finger.
I would like to say I did it fighting off some evil ninja’s while saving a damsel in distress. I would like to say I did it while training and exerting tremendous physical effort.
I was pulling weeds out of my garden. Specifically – not that it matters – from my strawberry bed. I’ll tell you – I am feeling pretty manly about this right now. :-)

This Knowledge Could Help You Save Someone Having A Heart Attack
A heart attack (proper name: myocardial infarction) is when the blood supply and therefore the oxygen in the blood is blocked off to one or more parts of the heart. They can occur due to poor heart health, old age, family inherited conditions, extreme stress and many other factors. They appear with symptoms such as tight squeezing chest pain, weakness, shortness of breath and sometimes vomiting.

Shoestring Prepping with Chronic Health Problems
Today’s environment isn’t TEOTWAWKI, yet it may be a personal SHTF for many people. I live on an extremely limited income with chronic health problems. It is very challenging. This article was written on a old laptop rebuilt with Ubuntu when the manufacturer and Microsoft kept pointing fingers at each [...]

DISCLAIMER: Always consult a medical doctor before using any new medications, prescription or not. This information is intended to be used as a general guide of what types of medications would be most useful in a post-societal breakdown situation where there is no formal access to medical care, and you are forced to become your own doctor. In no way is this information intended to be formal medical advice, ergo I take no responsibility for what you do with this [...]

An introduction by the Veridian Caballero
As a prepper it becomes easy to dream up worst case scenarios. From fires, floods and other natural disasters to man-made catastrophes such as an NBC attack, socio-economic collapse or even an EMP. It is an uncertain world we live in, that for the most part is out of our hands. But what is not out of our control is gathering the skills, tools, knowledge and mindset that we believe will give us an edge [...]

When I reflect on what drives me to prep, I realize that this motivation was born long before I actually started prepping. In fact, it was something that was forged through my life experiences beginning as early as childhood. My parents divorced when I was young, and with that I spent the good portion of my life experiencing what it is like to be financially limited. Although difficult, I never felt like my situation was hopeless or that I was [...]

Step-by-step emergency tips for refilling prescriptions in a pinch
It can take you off guard if you run out of your prescription medication. You might panic if you are unable to get your regular prescription because you have lost your medication, run out when out of town, or run out when your doctor is on vacation or unavailable. What can you do?
It’s always best to be prepared and to take plenty of time to manage your medications and get your refills [...]

In Part 1 antibiotics meant for fish were discussed as a source for human use after TSHTF. In Part 2 a source to legally obtain antibiotics meant for human consumption was looked at. Here in Part 3 a cost comparison is performed as well as some additional information on whether vet and human antibiotics may be the same.
For a cost comparison I am going to compare purchasing the same antibiotics from SurvivingHealthy.com and Amazon.com. SurvivingHealthy.com offers a couple of different packages. [...]
Continue reading PART 3: Vet Antibiotics versus Human Antibiotics – Cost and more…..
In Part 1 I discussed the availability of Vet Antibiotics on Amazon.com and also presented a recommended “shopping list”. In this segment a source for “meant for human consumption” antibiotics is considered.
I have been unable to find what I would be considered absolute factual information that leads me to believe that antibiotics meant for animal/fish use are EXACTLY the same as those prescribed for humans. With that said – I personally would not hesitate to use vet antibiotics if it was necessary. Some [...]

by Endeavoring Mama
We all know that life outside of what we’re comfortable with is awkward when not prepared for. That being said, I believe everything that happens in our lives, respectively, for a reason. Call it somewhat of a ‘whatever doesn’t kill us’ mantra but I truly believe it! A few years ago, my husband and I fell out of life as we knew it. We both lost our very wonderful jobs and with them went our [...]

Accumulating medications for a possible collapse may be simple when it comes to getting Ibuprofen and other non-prescription drugs. It will be a major issue, however, for those who need to stockpile prescription medicines but don’t have a relationship with a physician who can or will accommodate their requests. Antibiotics are one example of medications that will be very useful in a collapse [...]
