Bleeding, tips to control in emergency!

Bleeding Screen-Shot-2015-02-12-at-19.30.52-332x205Just recently I had the misfortune of accidentally cutting a deep wound in my hand. It was severe enough that I should have gone into the doctor and I still may. I know from experience that properly taken care of it would require several stitches. It is a clean wound so instead I let it bleed a little, then I worked with what I had on hand, Continue reading Bleeding, tips to control in emergency!

The Healing Power of Honey!

The Healing Power of Honey
Host: Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

Healing DIYFireCiderWMHoney is truly ancient medicine. The first written reference to the medicinal use of honey is on a Sumerian tablet over 4000 years ago. Honey has been used medicinally ever since. Honey is useful for many conditions, including wounds, burns , and some of the toughest bacteria we may ever encounter. Plus, it does all of this for less than ten federal reserve notes!

I count myself very lucky that seven years ago my husband decided to keep bees. We always have raw, local honey and wax on hand for all of my herbal projects, and I can’t imagine being without it. Granted, our original interest when embarking upon beekeeping was in the homebrewing of a honey-based alcoholic beverage known as mead. Since then, however, the use of honey has become a major feature in my herbal practice. Continue reading The Healing Power of Honey!

Gunshot Wounds in a Post-Disaster Environment!

Gunshot wounds in a post-disaster environment!
Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path”

TeachingEverybody who prepares for the worst should have at least one firearm and preferably much more than just one. Pistol, rifle and shotgun are all necessary weapons to own for defense and hunting. Anyone owning weapons should also incorporate firearm training and maintenance into their regular schedule. However, the last thing that anyone should ever want to have happen is to be in a firefight. Especially in a post-disaster environment.

GunshotRegardless of how well you train, if you are in a gun battle, you stand a good chance of being shot. You must anticipate how to deal with a gunshot wound of yourself or someone else close to you, as seriously as you train with your firearm.

I will talk about first aid from A to Z (as much as I can in 1 hour) for a gunshot wound. This will include both immediate first aid as well as follow up medical care in the case that there is no higher definitive care available. As always, I will assume the worst and that you have a minimum of or even no pharmaceutical medicine available, and will talk about plant medicine and other ways of dealing with initial trauma and long-term infection.
