Dental Care Post-Disaster!
Sam Coffman “Herbal Medic”
This week, I talk about dental hygiene and tooth care using unconventional (primarily herbal) approaches. First, how do you take care of tooth hygiene, cavities and gum disease in a post disaster setting? What about when there is no dentist and possibly no toothpaste, toothbrushes or other dental hygiene supplies? We talk about some of the most common issues with dental care in a post-disaster environment. Pain, discomfort, infection and how to prevent or care for these issues using herbs and other non-orthodox approaches are discussed.
There are many concepts that can be used for dental care at home as well. Often, prevention is the primary focus in dental care, and there are many alternatives using herbs and other methods that can help prevent tooth and gum health issues.
Sam Coffman talks about the skills and philosophy behind disaster preparedness and prepping for SHTF situations. He brings to light his many experiences as a former Green Beret as well as his observations after more than two decades of teaching people how to survive not only through skills, but through putting them into stressful situations that are both scenarios at his survival school as well as real-life situations in remote areas of the world. He interviews other experts and discusses by himself, a myriad of topics and skills to include tactics, primitive skills, urban survival and prepping, blacksmithing and knifemaking, guns and self-defense, plant medicine (herbalism), wilderness medicine and first aid, tracking and naturalist studies, sustainable agriculture, aquaponics, alternate power, communications and amateur radio and much more.
