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.

    • On a kinder gentler note there is a cool front coming from the artic will be here by ---lets say late October and over to pat with the sports scores and play by play take it away PAT ! and today in America no one used their brain, no animals were harmed and please give to the National Narcissist Network and remember their motto _ like we need your help !   I though I needed to lighten up the atmosphere before hitting the eject button -- I'm outta here until next post
    • All I know is China or NOKO does not need a navy with expensive weaponry as it appears all they need is a fleet of cargo, container ships and oil tankers and they can sink the whole fleet ! Who knew the master plan was to play bumper cars and put all our ships in dry dock for repairs. I am very concerned and like John Wayne said in the movie Big Jake about all the fancy toys that some buster with all thumbs will walk up and shoot you while your trying to get that fancy gun out of it's holster.   In other words I think we are building electronic garbage that is too complicated and too dependent on electricity satellites and too few personnel to insure safe function in an emergency situation not to mention I have a sneaky suspicion there are 5th columnist in our ranks ! Here is another little factoid in the past when a ship was sunk or more man power was required sailors were used for infantry medics or whatever the situation required if we keep building these automated mini me's if a real sea battle with unconventional weapons occurs if the men can make it to land there will not be enough of them to do anything but be POW's I have been sickeningly aware of something odd since the taking of our boat by Iran and it really upset me that our people did not act more military crying ---there is not crying in the military in front of an enemy that has not physically done something to you it is not that you do not feel like it but if they are going to kill you crying is not going to bring about an emotional reaction to release you. asking for any favor like during the revolution in Texas one man asked that he not be shot in the head so his family would not endure a mutilation of his body the Mexican leader had him shot in the face and then the battle of the Alamo all the bodies were burned and no one was allowed to be taken as prisoner or given any status it was surrender or die. Snowflakes liberal thinking and some stupid ideal that words on paper mean something is INSANE. Marcus of Queens-bury rules be damned fight like they fight kill like they kill use their sensitivities against them psychological /mental warfare does that mean I condone water boarding HELL NO there are much better and 100% effective ways to elicit answers to questioning that require NO pain or permanent damage IMHO it was a underhanded attempt to madden the enemy into a furious rage to extend the war and that is not conspiracy theory it is science FACT we have the admission of General Westley Clark that there was a plan to destabilize 7 nations in 5 years --- who in the hell thinks because you dream up a plan that is going to all fall into place Just the way you plotted it out ?  we have "ways" to get information and have since the 1950's so why telegraph that we are going to use torture and then turn around and give them prayer mats and religious books ?  clean clothes religious appropriate food ????? It is time for Americans to think for themselves and quit listening to the idiot box called video media it is all filtered or manipulated or else people that actually believe the horse hockey they read as truth even Fox news is completely oblivious to reality the reality that we are not fighting a nation state we are fighting a war of attrition from a proxy dictatorial political group acting like they are a Religion the members rape murder and torture men women children INFANTS the elderly chop off heads of any all burn victims alive drown them in cages they have murdered 1.5 million Christians and Jews n the region and America the bastion  of freedom equality THE CHRISTIAN NATION has funded armed fed gave medical aid to WHO damn sure was not any Christians or Jews to defend themselves and while our military was there the women had to wear head covering NO Christian symbols like a cross etc.............. WAKE UP it is all a lie wrapped in a horse turd inside is another lie or like Russian nesting / Bubushka  dolls one inside another inside another and another LIES LIES LIES. Zombie apocalypse ? we are living it ! the government is run by zombies regurgitating the total bullshize they are fed back to us as gospel because they are idiots or Manchurian candidates,  turncoats or worse. if it walks like a duck quacks like a duck craps like a duck it NOT A DUCK it is a mask to fool the moronic masses that are ignorant of the truth. Something far more nefarious insidious malicious and planed is going on life is cheap and fools are pawns or meat for the MACHINE we lost 10,000 lives in wars for what exactly ? what end game ? and while we played war game by paper rules the enemy slaughtered 1.5 MILLION Jews Christians and other religious groups and millions more of the opposing religion of their own people ????????? We pay all sides give weapons to one side that is our enemy but because of geography they are now NOT OUR ENEMIES WHAT THE FUDGE----- iT HAS COME TO THE POINT i DO NOT EVEN RESPOND TO PEOPLE WHO ARE TALKING ABOUT THE MIDDLE EAST ! Even the people that have been there have been manipulated into a false narrative that cannot be supported by the evidence to the contrary and when told refute the evidence because admitting the truth makes them WRONG. and when there is that much blood treasure time effort pain suffering loss of time with family loss of friends dirty filthy conditions and by orders from on high convincing yourself there is some higher force at work to admit it is all a sham is like getting hit in the face with a bag of crap & puke --------- I have seen this movie it's arerun of hearts & minds exportation of democracy freedom blah blah blah to a people that cannot conceive or are a pariah of the world drug growing dealing freaks of nature or worse. our government tells us we are exporting a better way of life and all the while they are flooding into Europe undermining their government infesting the EU the UN and taking advantage of our laws to build organizations that tell us they are bridges to peace and at any moment KUMBAYA  we are all going to hold hands and sing we are the world -------     Aaaaaaaa;haaaaaaaa BULLSHIZE !!!!    
    • Very good I had a problem with the Aguila mini shells as they could filp over in the receiver and as we all know shells do not feed well backward the shortest I would now use is 2 1/2 shotguns used to be chambered in that now 2 3/4 is the norm,  got an 870 Wingmaster that I had the barrel punched out to 3" just in case I stuffed on in there as it will fire and kick like a drunk mule if it has a 2 3/4 only chamber otherwise the Wingmaster is the slickest of the 870 versions IMHO and still looks good after 40 years as a work gun.
    • Today I made 2 mini 20 gauge shot shell.  They are 1 3/4 inch over all length. Have a buddy that liked my 12 gauge mini shells a lot, asked if I could make them in 20 gauge, I said sure why not. First one I made is a number #4 shot load. Second one is a slug load. Will chronograph these loads at my shooting club this weekend.
    • hmmmm don't rightly know....
