This new edition is bigger and better. It could save your life. And it tastes great.
Just kidding about that last part. You wouldn’t want to take a bite out of the cover or lick the pages, but it most definitely deserves a place in your survival library.
Who are Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy?
You can access their weekly podcasts from their site as well. Plus, they have a number of videos on YouTube. Look there for “DrBonesPodcast.”
If you’ve listened to their shows, you know they have a lot of fun while discussing serious medical and preparedness issues. And they always make great guests on DestinySurvival Radio. So I interviewed them for yesterday’s show to talk about their updated book.
Why the new book?
Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy also desire to share their knowledge in plain, understandable English. In a tight spot, you don’t want to be forced to ponder medical jargon.
Furthermore, because the preparedness community is so important to them, they’ve made painstaking efforts to self publish their book to maintain full control of its content. Don’t expect to see a Kindle version though because in a disaster, you’ll need the reliability of a hard copy book.
Major sections cover…
- Principles of Medical Preparedness
- Becoming a Medical Resource
- Hygiene and Sanitation
- Environmental Factors
- Chronic Medical Problems
- OtherImportant Medical Issues
Upwards of 150 pages were added for this second edition. New and expanded subjects include…
- Mass casualty events
- Medicinal gardening
- Natural methods of pain relief
- Sleep deprivation
- Radiation sickness and biological warfare
- Antibiotics, antivirals and antifungals
- And more
Why mention herbs and natural remedies?
Why read it now?–This isn’t just a reference book for times of trouble. While the first part of the book lays down principles and philosophy, Joe and Amy have emphasized prevention throughout the book. Besides, what will you do if you can’t access good medical care because you’re out of a job or care has been rationed?
What’s the response to the book?
They’re very open to questions and concerns from readers. Reader input had a great deal to do with the making of this second book.
It’s not possible for me to cover all we discussed, so I hope you’ll take time to listen to my interview with Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy on DestinySurvival Radio for July 18, 2013. Check out their site at www.DoomAndBloom.net. Dr. They also sell a variety of medical kits and supplies for you, too.
