  1. Thanks everyone for your kind words and support. This was the ONE forum we were spending our time keeping up with. We feel a great responsibility when we offer our help. It is frustrating offering medical articles that never appear and emailing the owners who never respond. I don't know what happened to this forum, maybe just neglect from the owners too busy trying to sell things. We spend most of our time writing, which you can see on our site and in the book (we have over 250 FREE articles online for your education). If you need to make a medical kit feel free to print out our content lists and DIY, we really don't care if you buy ours, just get some medical supplies please. Nurse Amy www.doomandbloom.net
  2. In case you haven't seen this on our site, a must-read for anyone storing medical supplies... http://www.doomandbloom.net/2012/10/new-evidence-on-expiration-dates-2.html Dr. Bones...
  3. Dr. Bones and I have made 167 posts to this forum. We have spent more time here than on ANY other website on the internet. And yet Survival Cache has completely ignored any of our articles, videos, our website and book. What would you do if you were us? We have sent them free books to review, articles to post and commited time and efforts to help their website be a place for well researched and thoughtful answers. Their home page is completely absent of any of our information. We have written them a few times with articles that are popular in the preparedness community, but they have not posted any of them. If YOU can help us with this, thanks. Almost done with this enormous effort, Nurse Amy
  4. It really is amazing to me how many people dismiss tetanus shots. It is a horrible disease! Nurse Amy
  5. The Archives of Internal Medicine, a respected medical journal, has published new evidence regarding the truth about expiration dates. Here it is: http://www.doomandbloom.net/2012/10/new-evidence-on-expiration-dates-2.html This is a must read... Dr. Bones
  6. Are you saying that you have never had a tetanus booster in over 10 years? If so, you have been very lucky. I hope you remain this lucky!! Nurse Amy
  7. Here's an article about a disease everyone's heard about, but few know the details... http://www.doomandbloom.net/2012/10/tetanus-in-times-of-trouble.html Dr. Bones
  8. Go to our shop and look through the list of contents of our various medical kits to see what we think is important: http://store.doomandbloom.net/ This is not an advertisement. We don't care if you buy any of our bags, just make sure you have a lot of the items we include in them. Dr. Bones
  9. Diverticulitis is a potentially surgical condition. Even without seeds, small bits of hard stool may block these small pouches in the lining of the large intestine and cause trouble. Stool softeners may be helpful in preventing attacks. Most older folks have some element of diverticulosis (non-inflamed diverticula) and should watch out for this. Dr. Bones
  10. Any successful survival plan has taken into account the need for ready access to clean drinkable water. We don't pay enough attention to keeping ourselves hydrated, and that will cause trouble if things go South. Dr. Bones
  11. Most otherwise medically prepared people fail to take into account the possibility of dental issues in a long term survival situation. Here's an article on how to extract a tooth with limited equipment: http://www.doomandbloom.net/2012/10/how-to-extract-a-tooth.html Dr. Bones
  12. Also, anything that gives you hard stool may be trouble for people with diverticulitis. Some recommend storing stool softeners. Dr. Bones
  13. Nurse Amy tells me her mom used to drench a t shirt in vinegar and put it on her when she got a bad sunburn. Vinegar is an awesome storage item. Dr. Bones
  14. Here's our article on appendicitis: http://www.doomandbloom.net/2012/09/appendicitis-in-survival-situations.html Dr. Bones
  15. Diets high in protein, with many small meals throughout the day, and with low calorie intake would be a temporary solution to stay out of ketoacidosis if you are type 1. Type 2 diabetics may actually see an improvement in their condition, as they will have limited carbohydrate choices and will have to become more active just in the daily activities of survival.
