Routine Medical/Dental = Part of PREP!

Recommended Posts

A few years ago I found the Patriot Nurse YouTube channel. I like her no nonsense info, and due to her medical background, she has and shares, some good health-related poop hits the fan stuff.

 

One thing she does discuss is the idea of how we focus a lot on the bullets, bandages, and beans, but one of the other things to prep is our bodies. Meaning our day-to-day health and managing it properly.

 

Recently, this really sat well with me and I have made a few changes in my lifestyle as a result.

 

So, if you're out of shape, facing addiction to a substance, delaying routine medical or dental care/procedures, or putting off that much-needed medical/dental procedure, perhaps now is a great time to turn things around.

 

Seriously, in a poop hits the fan - where are you gonna get that tooth fixed? Or that fugly mole taken care of, or your next 19 packs of cigs?

canned milk coffee tea liquor cigs OTC meds etc anything that is a creature comfort limits pain is valuable.

 

I seldome buy milk I just get small tins of milk it does not go bad well it might if I did not use it up.

 

hard candy like peppermint are good for stomach and sore / tickleish throat.

 

You can't store everything and I think out of all the things people may trade for some stuff you plan to stock.

being a prude about some things may be to your detrement and you do not need a storeroom full.

When it comes to medical needs you need to cover it as extensively as possible. At the very least you need a corpsman’s field surgical kit and assorted sutures, extra forceps, a bone saw, good tweezers, several Ace bandages, gauze, surgical tape etc. Pray that you never need it but having it could be the difference between life and death for a loved one.

 

I have a rather extensive "medicine cabinet" I have lots of various prescription antibiotics, pain medications, Benadryl is a must, Imodium, aspirin is still one of the best if not the most "stylish" OTC pain pills. Gather as much stuff as you can. Better to have and not need than to need and not have! Before antibiotics, people died from things as simple as shaving nicks that got infected! Before antibiotics people would get sick and it might take MONTHS before their body beat the disease and got well. Pneumonia was a big killer and could strike you down in the prime of your life. My Grandfather died of pneumonia at 37 after he refereed a bi-district football game in the rain. He was big, strong, in great shape and healthy as a horse but didn't beat the pneumonia. You do NOT want to fall that far back!

 

You need a dental kit that allows you to do temporary fillings, reattaches crowns, repair acrylic for denture and bridge repairs, clove oil, Q tips, cotton balls, dental mirror, mixing spatula, a little thing called a woodson filling instrument and a dental explorer. Nearly all of t his is available over the counter and at flea markets. You might also pick up a couple of scalers(tooth cleaners, an elevator (an angled pair of pliers for breaking a tooth lose from the bone when pulling it) and forceps (to actually remove the tooth after it is freed. Rotten teeth can and will slowly poison your body and weaken your immune system. You have a perminant infection that just wear you down until a minor illness can take you out.

 

You need to learn about and then start to grow a lot of various herbs and plants that work well and can be easily grown and/or gathered wild. Mint for digestive problems, Willow bark for pain, the list is almost infinite. I have several book on this and grow a lot of the more useful ones. Some are not easily grown in most of North America but can be bought and stored almost indefinably; cloves for example are tropical and would have to be grown in a Green house to survive freezes. Clove oil is still commonly used in various dental treatments for tooth aches.

 

Last but not least is books and literature that will help you do the things that you might need to to in an emergency when there is no hope of trained medical care. Read it NOW and gather a small library of medical manuals, first aid manuals and such. The time to learn is now not when someone you love is laying at your feet bleeding.

    • Build that wall KEEP THEM OUT !  Am I talking about Arizona,  California, New Mexico,Texas NO NO NO I'm taking about the Oscars they build walls use barriers and fencing , they check Identifications have armed security and police and do not allow the huddled masses to just hang out.  Kinda two faced isn't it 
    • When Hell freezes over ! we have all heard it, but like a lot of things no one believed it would ever happen, well it did Winter weather isn't just battering the eastern US. It's even snowing in Las Vegas
    • Beyond the reason that it is just bad / evil to purvey violence all MAGA supporters should not use violence unless defending themselves and as a last resort we see where it would only be used against them and giving the opposition fodder to use against the MAGA movement.
    • The show Empire is thinking about replacing or removing Smollett LOL. I was just wondering if this was a white actor in black face how long it would take for them to think about replacing them ........
    • Well one out of all their records -- their a punk band not exactly historians or geopolitical graduates  Here is another one that seems to work with today's system look at 41 seconds in. Houston we have a problem, a no knock warrant on the wrong people (partially guessing here) Jan. 28 raid and shootout at 7815 Harding St. that left five officers injured and two suspects dead.  because the Officer took i on himself t get a warrant and "call" from a woman accusing the home owners of allowing her daughter to shoot heroin in the home??? it's all pretty sketchy right now. because both victims were white IMO the city and chief are trying to ride this out and hope it goes away. Like any good democrat the chief will not resign LMAO they love being the Captain till the ship goes down on their watch, and it does not matter how many people die, it ain't their fault, well the no knock police he owns because he has been chief for long enough. Since when do you send in a swat team for a 2 people 58 and 59 that had no previous record ?  The police know that there are 5 different motorcycle gangs that do all kinds of shenanigans they don't send swat on them and they know where they hang out, that is the rub police know where dope houses are and some lone ranger decides to take down 2 old people ? it is insanity. The whole case against these 2  58-year-old Rhogena Nicholas and 59-year-old Dennis Tuttle is gut shot, any evidence is in question because of the low threshold of the warrant the political and police pressure to close ranks and back the blue not to mention the officers in on the raid see their careers and possible prison time could have tried to cover for themselves ( or it could be made a case for) I want to know where the oversight was, fact checking and as in most investigations there had to be more than one buy and usually video or wire recording . This is a travesty of justice even if they were guilty as they had NO opportunity to make their case in a court of law, they had no previous record and a warrant on one call and unsupported  accusation.  Their rights were trampled and the bar of truth was on the ground.  In the warrant, the sergeant says that Officer Gerald Goines, of HPD’s Narcotics Division, provided officers, including a high-ranking narcotics division supervisor, two different names of confidential informants. The warrant stated the two officers, “interviewed all of the confidential informants and all denied making a buy for Goines from the Harding Street residence, and ever purchasing narcotics from Nicholas or Tuttle.” This happens every day in America and when it goes bad police have been known to plant evidence loose evidence and back paper to cover.Judges have taken sexual favors bribes worse the D.A.'s have people still in prison after DNA has proven them innocent yet still refuse to file paperwork to release them and have the real suspect in prison as well. Just as morality and truth slides in our culture so it does in all our agencies. truth is relative to feelings and view point politics conviction rates and personal opinion I don't see justice anywhere. 2:18
