    This free to download book is a joint effort of about a dozen semi-anonymous medical professionals. Despite the fact that it's self-published and written by amateur writers, it’s the best book I’ve seen dealing with medical care in a SHTF situation. Unlike some of the wilderness medicine books...

    "Where There is No Doctor" is a classic austere medical handbook published by Hesperian. The first edition was written in the 1970s in Spanish and the book has since been translated into English and a few other languages. It's designed for use by natives in the developing world who lack access...

    This is the first book report I've done since Jr. High and boy am I excited. The Survival Medicine Handbook 3rd Ed. is one of the books that often shows up in "must have" lists of prepper books. It's generally well-written and should be accessable to anyone with a high school or higher...

    Making essential oils I have been following essential oil alcohol extraction distillers for a long time. Units that have been on the market have been very small units [copper pot-stills]. I recently noticed that this year one still manufacturer has introduced a large reflux column still...

    Hey all. I'm still a prepper on a very low budget. Recently, I used up the last single-dose packets of ibuprofen and acetaminophen in my EDC FAK. Refills of the said packs are pretty pricey ($10-$15, depending on the kind, for ~100 tablets.). I've seen some people just purchase the bulk...

    A while back I made a comprehensive list of various antibiotics with doses and applications as well as delivery methods etc. the purpose for doing this revolved around the repeated idea that I was the most medically trained person in our group, so knowing the risk of wound infection I took it...

    Has anyone used or ordered anything from http://internationalpharm.net? With the upcoming regulations on some medicines for people to purchase without a prescription...I saw this site and was just wondering if anyone had used it and what their experience was. Also wondering if there are any...

    Hey guys, long time no post. Some of you may remember that my business is in disaster recovery and incident management, so I tend to do quite a bit of research into how companies and organisations can best prepare and respond to emergencies. Though I consider myself a prepper I tend to also...
  12. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Hello all, I was reviewing my preps the other day and I noticed I have next to nothing for medicine. I have some ibuprofen, anti fungal, and Vaseline. Otherwise I have nothing. I know a few obvious ones would be neosporin, maybe some decongestants, antacids and some vitamins. What other otc...

    We try and keep at least 6 months of medicine on hand. But would that even be enough if there was a real crisis. It's time to re-evaluate. Argentina has a serious medicine shortage. The crisis is only getting worse. A crumbling economy and lack of access to foreign currency (worsened by the...

    Okay, I've searched for this topic but I can't quite find what I'm looking for. The hubs and I are hoping to find a piece of land, build a house, and prep for whatever comes our way. We're really still in the planning process and I'm thinking about trees or plants we should invest in to put on...

    Just thought I'd make a post on this topic, I'll start with what I know and other people can comment and hopefully we can all learn something from one another. I'll try and think of common and significant injuries that could be sustained and how to deal with them. Head Injuries First and...

    Let me start by prefacing this thread with what I am looking for. I am a semi-rural family physician and also work in a lot of rural Emergency departments. I am looking to start an herb garden for medications for true emergencies during SHTF so I can continue to do my job if I have no...

    I am curious as to what others are doing with regards to stocking up on prescription medications. I am not talking Advil and Tylenol or cough syrup. What about blood pressure meds, heart meds, insulin....these type things? I did do a search and did not find anything related, though I am sure...

    Basically, what's the major enemy of a given pill/prescription? I'm starting from a basic assumption that all medications will fail at some point due to: 1) Light 2) Heat (And any change in temperature or temperature extremes) 3) Humidity 4) Oxygen 5) Age #5 can be mitigated by rotating stocks...
