Family Medical Preps – Part 1

by Doctor Dan, Survival Blog:

As Americans, we live in a time of relative peace and prosperity and are blessed to enjoy the most advanced healthcare system in history. Yet, as good as we have things now, we do not know what the future may bring. How can we find better health now, prepare for medical emergencies we may encounter in daily events, and also prepare for an uncertain future where medical resources may be limited or completely absent? The latter is commonly called a When The Schumer Hits The Fan (WTSHTF) scenario. Here are a few suggestions from a practicing physician:

This Isn’t Normal: 20 Earthquakes Of Magnitude 3.0 Or Greater Have Hit California Within The Last 24 Hours

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

It has been more than 10 days since southern California was hit by the two largest earthquakes that the state has experienced in decades, and yet the shaking refuses to stop.  In fact, now northern California is joining the party.  On Tuesday, San Francisco residents were greatly alarmed when a magnitude 4.3 earthquake rattled buildings all over the region.  Thankfully not a lot of damage was done, but it has been a very long time since California has been hit by so many sizable earthquakes over such an extended period of time.  According to the USGS, there have been 20 earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 or greater in the state of California within the last 24 hours.  Of course most of the “experts” are assuring us that all of this seismic activity will soon settle down, but what if they are wrong?

61-Year-Old Disabled Man Demonstrates EXACTLY “Why You Need an AR-15”

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

How many times have you seen a gun control debate in which someone chimes in, “Nobody needs an AR-15. What are you going to do, hunt deer with it?” It’s been a busy year for gun control advocates, passing draconian law after draconian law.

Sometimes it’s part of a heartfelt essay, like this, which is just another essay where a man bloviates about his views on high-velocity weapons.

“Due To A Poor Harvest Season, We Are Experiencing Shortages On Many Of Our Canned Vegetable Items”

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

I know that this headline is alarming, but it is actually a direct quote from a notice that was recently posted in a Kroger supermarket.  And as you will see below, similar notices are being posted in the canned vegetable sections of Wal-Mart stores nationwide.  I would encourage you to examine the evidence in this article very carefully and to come to your own conclusions about what is happening.  At this moment, social media is buzzing with reports of shortages of canned vegetables all around the country.  But so far, the mainstream media is being eerily quiet about all of this.  Is there a reason why they aren’t saying anything?  For months, I have been reporting on the extremely bizarre weather patterns that are causing crop failures all over the planet.  But I certainly did not expect that we would already begin to see product shortages on the shelves of major U.S. supermarkets this summer.  What I am about to share with you is shocking, but the truth needs to get out.  For those that share my articles on your own websites, I know that all of the images in this article are going to be an inconvenience, but it is imperative that you include them when you republish this article because they tell a story.  All of the images are taken directly from Facebook, and they prove that we are now facing a nationwide shortage of canned vegetables.

Storing Meat

0

from Survival Blog:

While some people are vegetarians and get by just fine, I feel that is not the normal eating habits of humans. Humans are omnivores who are designed to eat both meat and plants. Most preppers have the plant part down with growing their own vegetable gardens, foraging wild plants in their area, or a combination of those two. Meat is a more difficult food item for many preppers.

Edible plants and sprouts can be grown even in an apartment or a small outdoor space. But growing meat in a small space is more difficult, but perhaps not impossible. Fish are a possible answer that can possibly be grown in a small area as long as you have the required food for your fish. Rabbits require only a small area as long as you have access to food and water for them. Chickens are often allowed to roam or are caged in larger pens but could likely be grown in much more confined cages.

How to Build Your Own Underground Bunker

from Off Grid Survival:

The persistent threat of the end of the world as we know it, popularly referred to as TEOTWAWKI, grows with each passing day. Whether it’s a global economic collapse, environmental disaster, a run on the borders, nuclear disaster or terrorism the threats have never been greater.

The only way to fully protect yourself and your family is to be prepared for anything and everything that could happen. You can’t hope that the authorities will swoop in and save the day. You can’t plan to ride out a disaster or the collapse of civilization in your house – not for long, anyway. You have to be ready, and that means you need to think about securing an impenetrable and defensible shelter. It’s time to think about underground bunkers.

Food Shortage Warnings Are Already Starting To Appear, And Now Tropical Storm Barry Is Going To Rip Through America’s Heartland

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

The middle of the country has been relentlessly hammered by endless rain and unprecedented flooding for months, and now it is about to be absolutely pummeled by Tropical Storm Barry.  Needless to say, this is going to cause even more headaches for Midwestern farmers.  At this point, millions of acres of prime farmland are not going to be planted at all this year, and there are tens of millions of other acres where crops are really, really struggling.  Those farms desperately need some warm, sunny weather for a while, but instead they are about to get hit by another enormous storm.  In the end, this could potentially turn out to be the worst growing season in modern history, and it comes at a time when crops are literally failing all over the planet.  Sadly, we really struggle to feed everyone on the globe even during the best years, and so what will things look like if worldwide harvests are catastrophic during the second half of 2019?

What To Do If It’s TOO LATE and You Can’t Evacuate Before a Hurricane

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

What if something happens and you CAN’T evacuate before a hurricane? What if it’s too late to evacuate before the storm makes landfall?

While it’s easy to say, “Oh, they should have left earlier” and run through the gamut of blame, the fact remains that there are all sorts of reasons that leaving didn’t work out.

Gas stations run dry, which means that people can’t drive their cars to leave. Roads are at a standstill as people all try to leave at once in a mass exodus. Train tickets are sold out. Plane tickets are outrageously expensive, in some cases more than three thousand dollars apiece. Maybe someone in the family is disabled and unable to relocate. Maybe they don’t have the money or maybe their work refused to give them time off. (This happens more than you’d think.)

CBD Round-Up: 9 Things You Should Know About This Plant Remedy

HOMEOWNER USES AR-15 TO FEND OFF FOUR ARMED INTRUDERS, KILLS TWO

from InfoWars:

Florida man’s home defense rifle saves his life

A Florida homeowner will not face charges after he used an AR-15 rifle to fend off four armed home invaders, killing two.

The incident, which took place Wednesday evening around 8:20 p.m. in Summerfield, started when one of the men approached the 61-year-old’s home claiming he was having car trouble.

5 OF THE BEST “NON-GUN” SELF-DEFENSE WEAPONS

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

When one wants to protect themselves, the obvious tool to grab is the gun. However, not everyone is completely ready to take a human life and some situations may not warrant such an escalation in violence anyway.

Non-lethal weapons could come in handy in many situations, such as petty theft, where killing the robber may be more mentally harmful to the person exercising their self-defense rights than using a non-lethal method would be. At the end of the day, you’ll have to use your own judgment and decide what is best for you, but protecting yourself and your family should always be a priority.

What You Need to Know About Militant Groups And How to Prepare for Them

0

by Sandra Lane, The Organic Prepper:

When the ‘Big One’ happens, whether that’s defined as the mother of all earthquakes, a massive volcano, a nuclear war, EMP, World War III, the next Revolution, or an invasion of the country, the Rule of Law will be threatened. The Rule of Law, loosely defined, is summed up as ‘individuals, persons and government shall submit to, obey and be regulated by law, and not arbitrary action by an individual or a group of individuals.’ Obviously, without Rule of Law, anything goes. That’s when various peoples step into action with an agenda, and sometimes nefarious goals. For a plethora of reasons, these people already exist and are already grouped up, unified, and practicing. This is not a joke, nor is it meant to be political.

Research: Radiotherapy Causes Cancer, Blueberry Kills It

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

Research confirms radiotherapy drives invasiveness within cancer, as well as the power of natural substances to strike to the heart of cancer malignancy. 

An important study reveals both the abject failure of conventional radiation treatment for cancer, and the very real possibility that blueberries contain a curative compound far more effective than anything modern cancer specialists have available to them to strike at the very root of cancer malignancy.

SELCO: How NOT to Build Your SHTF Medical Kit and What NOT to Do With It

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

The medical field is one of my favorite fields of prepping, not only because it is my “field of work” for many years but also because it is very often misunderstood in prepping.

There are many reasons for that, one of the reasons is the fact that there are many other “cooler” topics for prepping. As a result, medical preparedness gets researched very superficial, and people prepare for it in a way that most of them want just to mark that as done and move on to other topics.

So as a foundation in medical prepping for SHTF think about a few things, for a start only.
