how to manage most health situations when help is not on the way.
If you want to see what happens when things go south, all you have to do is look at Venezuela: no electricity, no running water, no law, no antibiotics, no painkillers, no anesthetics, no insulin or other important things.
But if you want to find out how you can still manage in a situation like this, you must also look to Venezuela and learn the ingenious ways they developed to cope.
10 Medical Supplies You Need to Have in Your House
These supplies are not expensive and should still be available, but they tend to run out fast.
In case you haven’t realized it yet, most of the medical supplies and pills we take for granted come from China and India. This supply chain is vulnerable and can be interrupted by something like an EMP.
One of the 10 supplies you should have in advance is a painkiller called Naproxen, which is over the counter and more powerful than others like ibuprofen for example.
The biggest mistake you can make in a blackout
In Venezuela, electricity has turned into a rare and unpredictable commodity. They don’t have it all the time, and blackouts have become a normal part of daily life.
Inside the Home Doctor, you’ll also learn about the biggest medical mistakes you can make in a blackout and what to do with important medications that require refrigeration, like insulin or Humira.
How to recognize a Heart Attack and what to do next:
Look at its four distinctive symptoms: first, chest discomfort that feels like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, and pain in the middle of your chest that lasts for more than a few minutes.
The second symptom is discomfort or pain in one or both arms and your back, neck, jaw, or stomach.
The third symptom is shortness of breath.
The last thing you need to watch out for is breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea, and lightheartedness.
These don’t all come at once, but if you see even one or two, it’s time to call 911.
Another step you can take to improve your chances before the ambulance arrives is to chew on an aspirin and pour a vial of nitroglycerin under your tongue. But you need to have these two items at home beforehand.
What Happened when you take expired medicines
No country in the world has had to use more expired medication than Venezuela.
Dr. Maybell and other doctors were able to see what happens firsthand, and it’s almost guaranteed to surprise you: most medications you have in your medicine cabinet are good for years after their expiration dates; which medication is safe to take after its expiration date and which ones are not.
So, pay close attention to this chapter before you throw away your so called “expired” medication.
Best Natural Painkiller that grows in your own backyard
Another thing you’ll discover is the best natural painkiller that probably grows in your own backyard.
This is the painkilling plant that many in Venezuela turned to after they couldn’t find relief at the pharmacy anymore…and it grows all over North America as well.
What happened if you take wrong Probiotics
I’ll also show you the only probiotics you really need to keep in your medicine cabinet.
Probiotics are microorganisms that live inside your gut and influence your metabolism and overall health.
They can even trigger allergies. Their effects are so widespread that you don’t want to have the wrong probiotics and risk messing up your gut flora. I personally know people who gained a lot of weight taking bad probiotics.
A good probiotic, on the other hand, can make all the difference: It can improve your digestion, help you get rid of gas, absorb the maximum amount of good nutrients from the food you eat, and take care of both diarrhea and constipation.
The Best Way to Tell if an Arrhythmia Is Benign or Dangerous
Some changes in heart rate and rhythm are normal during sleep, physical activity, and moments of stress.
But other times, an irregular heart rhythm, or arrhythmia, may be a serious problem, which, left untreated, can lead to cardiac arrest and stroke.
The way you decide if it’s time to call 911 is by looking at the symptoms of dangerous arrhythmia, which never appear for milder versions. These are shortness of breath, dizziness, lightheartedness, near fainting or fainting, and mild chest pain. If you feel your heart beating too fast or too slow and also experience at least a one of these symptoms, call an ambulance immediately.
How to Use Salt and Oil for Tooth and Gum Decay
You'll also discover the old mustard oil and salt remedy that people use to restore gums and remove plaque.
Salt acts as a mild abrasive that helps remove stains and brighten teeth. It also contains a natural source of fluoride, which is a bonus for your teeth.
On the other hand, mustard oil helps strengthen your gums and makes it easier to remove the plaque naturally.
Why You Should Always Keep Some Listerine in Your Medicine Cabinet
I’ll also show you why keeping a small stockpile of Listerine in your medicine cabinet can be a very good idea.
Listerine was invented in 1879 and was originally formulated as a surgical antiseptic. It was named after the brilliant British surgeon, Joseph Lister, who is still widely considered to be the father of antisepsis, the science of preventing infections.
In the hospitals of Venezuela, they used a lot of Listerine for different types of bacterial and fungal infections, wounds, gangrene, and diabetic foot.
