Medical self care books

While cleaning up a bit today, I found a few books on medical self care. I am a retired nurse/nurse practitioner but I wanted to set aside some things for my family to use for when I am not here. I love “when there is no doctor” and “Survival medicine”. You might also want to include a book on herba...

Re: What did you do to prepare today?

Canned more quarts of pintos. Went to 99 cent store and actually found quite a few things for preparedness stockpile. Matches, some small rope bundles, canned food, soap bars, lots of hand sanitizer and more. Bought two bottles of vodka. We don’t drink but figure could be good for medicinal purposes...

Re: Oils, Butters, etc...

Growing up in the 60s that was how all my Nebraska farmer relatives stored lard. I ate tons of it as a child and am still alive and well! Never went rancid as I remember, however they stored everything in a cool root cellar. BTW saw a great video on YouTube about food storage that was a presentation...

Re: Hello from So Californ

Thanks guys. I will look into the wind basket, it would be perfect at my home because we have a slight breeze all the time. Of course I live in the Peoples Republic of California, and the city I live in is very restrictive. I will have to check if it’s allowed. Andy I hear you on your kids. I don’t ...

One of the benefits of this is being very in tune to weather patterns over a long period of time. In my lifetime I have ...

The mushroom kit is Shitake. I live in So Cal palm tree area so don't have access to fresh cut log. Any other thing I can use?
