Top Five Cold Weather Risks to Your Heath?
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live”
As the temperatures drop lower and lower, the risk of five types of cold weather injuries shoots up. Do you know what they are? Even more important, do you have the skills to respond to such an injury? In this episode of Herbal Prepper Live, herbalist and prepper, Cat Ellis discusses time-tested, essential first aid skills, as well as herbal medicine specific to wintertime injuries.
Depending on your age and any pre-existing conditions, you may be more at risk for certain cold weather-associated risks than others. What are the top five cold weather risks to your health? Here’s the list:
2. Trenchfoot (not just for trenches!)
3. Frost Nip/Frost Bite
5. Heart Attack
In this episode, Cat will cover each or these risks, how to recognize them, pre-eisting conditions that complicate these top five cold weather risks, as well as how to prevent them from happening in the first place. Most importantly, Cat will detail what to do, and what not to do, if if help is not on the way.
Why do you need to know this? Do you live someplace that snows in the winter? Is your homestead located in a remote, rural town without quick access to a hospital? What if civil unrest made going to the hospital an impossibility? While each of these five cold-weather risks are cause to seek a doctor’s help, what would you do if that just wasn’t an option?
When most people think about a cold weather emergency kit, they think of blankets, chemical hand warmers, wool socks, and perhaps a folding shovel to go in the car in case you get stuck. It’s time to update your winter emergency kit to include caring for cold weather injuries. Hopefully, you will never need be faced with such an emergency. But if you are, this episode will teach you what supplies you need to have on hand and how to use them safely.
