Routine Medical/Dental = Part of PREP!

6 posts in this topic

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.

    • New Chinese shipping container pod full O missiles so every shipping freighter is now a problem these rockets can go 400 miles in 10 seconds I only post this now because is is widely known but this is the future of hostile weapons and North Korea China and Iran know this as well so for all the stupid people that think a country has to have a ballistic system capable of thousands of miles your idiots these can be shipped trucked from a friendly port. as many vessels that carry a contingent of political ambassadors and other reasons may not or could be excluded from searches.  China has a container that is capable f controlling 4 other container weapons and can launch multiple types of rockets missiles decoys etc etc . or Multiple munitions from a single rocket. South of the boarder  Rafael south American military industrial complex Other packages can be stuffed into these taco's or eggrolls or spring rolls depending on the origin of these little beauties. the left better pull their head out of their azz and wake up as well as the lame fake news media. we still have no idea of where approximately  199 suitcase nukes are lost in the 1980's nor a box car of other things that went missing when the former USSR fell every country under it's control had arsenals of all kinds of party favors. Janes directory of military hardware and Popular science and a few other sites can educate people to new technology I am very very disappointed at the Fitzgerald because it make us America look like a bunch of rubes billions of dollars or R&D years of testing trials and this ship cost between 1.7 billion to 2 billion dollars and cannot evade a floating barge it is more than a challenge to wrap my mind around especially once you see the Satellite track of the ACX Crystal it appears to have purposely diverted from course and intentionally rammed the Fitzgerald then took a 90 degree diversion then altered course north east then doubled back south west then south back toward the Fitzgerald and NO repeat NO signal supposedly came from the Fitzgerald but from the ACX Crystal and with a time discrepancy of over an hour and there had to be backup weather hand held or alternate communications onboard  not to mention if the alphabet soup watch all and knows all why was a strike on a 2 billion dollar vessel not noticed were they watching miley cyrus twerking  GPS military is within 1 foot where are all the billions of dollars pissed away by our government going who the hell watches the watchers and why have a few hundred people tasked to watch and duty it is to protect and defend our people in harms way ? I want heads to roll court-marshals satellite companies fined engineers fired tracking and control officers and staff stripped of their classifications in all levels that had access to this intel in eal time because now who in the hell believes we are a world power this makes us look like a paper tiger run by fools and every company that had a hand in building that ship should be drug through the ringer fined fired from government contracts restricted from bids if their equipment was at fault and it should ba open transparent and all the guilty should be made public. Why am I so upset because those 7 people were left to drown to save the other on that ship locked in waiting to die all the while knowing what would happen once that hatch was closed and probably in the dark looking for air pockets trying to stay alive hoping beyond hope some one could break through or find an alternative hatch and get them out from a stranger than fiction supposed accident General Keene his version read like a script all the traffic could be seen on satellite in real time and he said "it was dark" 2 billion dollars cutting edge radar sonar and other computers a 360 degree bubble for out to at least 60 miles and that is what he had to say ? Susan Rice was more believable when she said Benghazi was started by an Internet video. we need to start calling him Susan and the other dip in the road Admiral John Kirby then press secretary under Obama his fictional account ought to win him a Pulitzer prize his acting an Oscar IMHO. if we ever need 3 test pilots to fly a rocket ship to  Uranus John McCain General Keene and Admiral Kirby  just to round out the crew Nancy Pelosi can run communications as she is an anus here maybe she can communicate with the Uranuses there.  Just a thought and an opinion I could or could not be mistaken or have misspoke about this poor misunderstood people
