There is no substitute for being medically prepared. Any disaster, short term or long term, puts you and your loved ones in jeopardy without medical preparedness.
History tells us that these types of calamities can happen. From tornadoes in Joplin, Missouri to hurricanes on the gulf coast, medical personnel could easily be out of reach when a real emergency strikes someone that you care about. In this situation, you are now the highest medical resource left, whether you like it or not.
Today's guests, Amy Alton (Nurse Amy) an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner and Certified Nurse-Midwife, and her husband Joseph Alton (Dr. Bones) a Medical Doctor and OB/GYN Surgeon are on a mission to make sure we have the survival skills needed during times when medical facilities may not be available to us or our families. Together they have co-written the book, The Survival Medicine Handbook to provide all of us a hard copy of knowledge. This book is recommended reading for the person that is serious about staying healthy in the uncertain future.
The Altons host The Doom and Bloom Survival Medicine Hour syndicated podcast weekly on Prepper Nation Radio. They travel the country spreading the message of medical preparedness to the world and are supporters of many quality preparedness conferences throughout the country.
Nurse Amy and Dr. Bones are with us today to explain the importance of being prepared for medical crises, and share tips to get us started.
