Temperatures are plunging and winter is only a few weeks away, which means that for homesteaders who live in the coldest parts of the country, it’s time to stockpile necessities for frigid weather.
Wood and food are always on that list, but what about medicine?
On this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio we talk to Dr. Joe Alton, the co-author of the popular book “The Survival Medicine Handbook” who is perhaps best known as “Dr. Bones” from the survival “Doom and Bloom” website.
Dr. Alton tells us how to stockpile medicine and even antibiotics for winter – the legal way – and he also reveals:
- Which over-the-counter and alternative medicines are best to stockpile for the common cold.
- Why he believes many people are fighting fevers the wrong way.
- What he thinks about Zicam, vitamin C and other supplements that supposedly prevent colds.
- How Neti pots are often used incorrectly – a mistake that can cause major health problems.
Finally, Dr. Alton gives us his best advice on staying healthy this winter – including whether that regiment should include hand sanitizer.
If you want to stay healthy all winter long, then don’t miss this week’s show!
