The Home Doctor - Practical Medicine for Every Household- is a 304 page doctor written and approved guide on how to manage most health situations when help is not on the way.
If you want to see what happens when things go south, all you have to do is look at Venezuela: no electricity, no running water, no law, no antibiotics, no painkillers, no anesthetics, no insulin or other important things.
But if you want to find out how you can still manage in a situation like this, you must also look to Venezuela and learn the ingenious ways they developed to cope.
Dr. MaybellNieves - head surgeon of the Unit of Breast Pathology and general surgeon at Caracas University Hospital in Venezuela, with over 10 years of experience in the operating room. She studied at the prestigious European Institute of Oncology in Milan, Italy.
Dr. Maybell is known for developing new, ingenious methods of treating patients after Venezuela's economy collapsed and hospitals and pharmacies ran out of medicines, supplies, electricity and running water.
The methods she developed and pioneered are now studied and applied in conflict zones all over the world.
Many of these protocols and procedures do not require medical assistance as they are specifically designed to be self-applied. That makes them extremely valuable if the medical system cannot be depended on, like during long term blackouts.
You can find some of these methods below! As you read them, you can easily understand why they are so useful and why every household and family should have them close by. She co-authored the book with Dr Rodrigo Alterio and Claude Davis.
This book is a unique guide for the layman that you can use when help is not on the way or to manage common ailments that don't require seeing a doctor.
Let me show you just some of the things you’ll find inside the Home Doctor:
These supplies are not expensive and should still be available, but they tend to run out fast.
In case you haven’t realized it yet, most of the medical supplies and pills we take for granted come from China and India. This supply chain is vulnerable and can be interrupted by something like an EMP.
One of the 10 supplies you should have in advance is a painkiller called Naproxen, which is over the counter and more powerful than others like ibuprofen for example.
In Venezuela, electricity has turned into a rare and unpredictable commodity. They don’t have it all the time, and blackouts have become a normal part of daily life.
Inside the Home Doctor, you’ll also learn about the biggest medical mistakes you can make in a blackout and what to do with important medications that require refrigeration, like insulin or Humira.
Look at its four distinctive symptoms: first, chest discomfort that feels like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, and pain in the middle of your chest that lasts for more than a few minutes.
The second symptom is discomfort or pain in one or both arms and your back, neck, jaw, or stomach.
The third symptom is shortness of breath.
The last thing you need to watch out for is breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea, and lightheadedness.
These don’t all come at once, but if you see even one or two, it’s time to call 911.
Another step you can take to improve your chances before the ambulance arrives is to chew on an aspirin and pour a vial of nitroglycerin under your tongue. But you need to have these two items at home beforehand.
Modern antibiotics are lifesavers. Without them, a simple cold can quickly turn into a deadly pneumonia, an infection in a small cut can become life threatening.
I’ve selected to stockpile a 4 different antibiotics for just this reason and I want to show you how you can do the same... legally, without a prescription.
They contain distinctive substances that act very differently, so while it could happen that you stumble upon a bacteria that is resistant to one of them, the chance it can withstand all four is very slim.
Antibiotics will become priceless in times of need once they become scarce. Having these 4 at home for you and your family is at least as important as having food stockpiles. But under no circumstance should you take them without consulting a doctor first.
In Chapter 3, Skin and Skin Appendages, you’ll find out all you need to know to manage conditions of the skin, such as corns, warts, athlete’s food, burns and scalds, dermatitis, fungal infections of the nails, insect bites and stings, abscesses, ulcers or open wounds…
You’ll also discover why you should put egg whites on second-degree burns, what over-the-counter medicines and creams to stockpile, and the exact process of cleaning, stitching, and treating an open wound at home.
An antibiotic ointment is nice to have around when you need it.
The recipe found inside the Home Doctor aids in keeping a wound from becoming infected and help reduce scarring.
