Coping with hygiene and sanitation, being #1 in the #2 business!

Sam CoffmanHygiene and sanitation, how prepared are you really in regards to  and (in the worst case) coping with gasto-intestinal disease in a post-disaster environment?  Today, on The Human Path Sam Coffman discusses everything you ever wanted to know (and some things you maybe didn’t!) about purifying your water, taking care of human waste, and dealing with gastro-intestinal distress, using both orthodox medicine as well as a plant-medicine (herbalism) and common sense.

hygiene and sanitationNot only do we need to have several different “hygiene / sanitation” alternatives for purifying our water and cooking or preparing our food, but we also have more than one sanitation plan.  This means having enough water to stay relatively clean as well as having a way to dispose of human waste.  What are all your options?  You should be prepared to deal with hygiene and sanitation in several ways, because you can’t always know what to expect or what you will have to work with.  The key here is to be informed and to be adaptable to any situation.
Do you know what kind of diseases and toxins you need to be concerned with through your water and your food?  Do you know what kinds of filtration works with what kinds of pathogens and what kinds of toxins?  If you do get sick from bad water or food, what are the top antibiotics and top medicinal herbs you should have available (or be able to find)?  Join Sam Coffman as he shares his experience as a Special Forces medic in the field, working with exactly these types of issues on hygiene and sanitationin remote, post-disaster and medically underserved environments.

Part 1 Communicable diseases and conditions caused by the lack of hygiene, sanitation and poor living conditions.

Nancy Nurse 150Over thousands of years poor living conditions, sanitation and lack of hygiene has caused some of the most devastating wide spread diseases and deaths in the history of mankind. Just think about Hepatitis A, Giardia, Cholera, Dysentery, food poisoning (Salmonella and E. coli), lice, and scabies. What causes the start and spread of the disease? What are the signs of an outbreak?  How to care for infected family or friends? What can you do to stop the communicability of a disease? How to prevent potential diseases? What homeopathic methods can we incorporate into our care?

Come join us in an open discussion as we talk through these questions and more on Band Aids and Bandages.  This topic is jammed full of information. So we will break the topic into two consecutive Fridays.
