Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy – A Medically Prepared Person in Each Family

DrBonesAmyWithout equivocation, I think the inimitable personas of Joe Alton, M.D., aka Dr. Bones, an M.D., Fellow of both the American College of Surgeons and the American College of OB/GYN, and his wife, Amy Alton, A.R.N.P., aka Nurse Amy, an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, are the preparedness industry’s unchallenged best-known and most-respected representative duo!

Nurse Amy is a certified nurse midwife as well, and an expert on herbal remedies and essential oils. She also has one of the largest medicinal gardens in the state of Florida.

Husband and wife, Dr. and Mrs. Alton are firm believers that to remain healthy in hard times, everyone should have the knowledge to use all the tools at their disposal. “Why not use ALL the tools in the woodshed?” asks Dr. Alton.

Their mutual goal is to promote integrated medicine. This will provide their readers with the most options to keep their loved ones healthy in any disaster situation.

Their mission:  To enable a medically-prepared person in every family for disaster situations.

Together, they’re the authors of the #1 Amazon bestseller, The Survival Medicine Handbook, and is at the top of the categories of Survival Skills and Safety/First Aid. As a team, they are well-known speakers, podcasters, and YouTube contributors, as well as providing medical and medical-related articles to leading preparedness, survival and homesteading magazines. They have more than 575 posts on medical preparedness on their website at doomandbloom.net. Nurse Amy  has also written articles on survival gardening and natural remedies for Survivalist and Backwoods Home Magazine.

Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy use pseudonyms to allow them the freedom to go outside the conventional medical wisdom when it comes to disasters, and they are quick to mention that their efforts are to teach people the methods for medical treatment that are for times of disaster––when there is no expectation a doctor will be available to give care.

Dr. Bones has contributed to Survivalist Magazine, Backwoods HomeSelf-Reliance Illustrated, and Survival Quarterly, and has written a chapter on Basics of Medical Survival for Doctor Prepper’s latest edition of “Making the Best of Basics––Family Preparedness Handbook.”  Dr. Alton is a member of Mensa and collects 19th-century medical books to gain insight into off-grid medical strategies.

A short list of books in which the Altons and their work is recommended:

  • Expatriates, by James Wesley, Rawles­
  • Long-Term Prepper’s Survival Guide,  Countdown to Preparedness, and other books by Jim Cobb
  • The Survival Group Handbook, akaMAGS: The People Part of Prepping  by Charley Hogwood
  • The Simple Survival Smart Bookby Patrick Shrier
  • The Prepper’s Blueprintby Tess Pennington

In normal times, seek modern and standard medical care from qualified professionals.  The Doom and BloomSurvival Medicine Hour is a syndicated podcast airs weekly on PreparednessRadio.com, Prepper Nation Radio, The Prepper Broadcasting Network, The USA Emergency Broadcasting Network, and other fine networks––and is also available on iTunes.

Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy have a YouTube channel called “drbonespodcast and have produced dozens of videos about survival medicine and survival gardening.  They are active in social media on Facebook at “drbonesand nurseamy” and doomandbloom, and at Twitter @preppershow.  You can follow any or all of these social media sites for articles and videos on survival medicine.

Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy travel the country spreading the message of medical preparedness to the world and are supporters of many quality preparedness, self-reliance, and survivalist expos and conferences throughout the country.

The Survival Medicine Handbook is a guide for those who want to be medically prepared for any disaster where help is NOT on the way. The expanded and revised 2nd edition of the 3-category Amazon bestseller (Survival Skills, Disaster Relief, Safety/First Aid) is geared t­o enable the non-medical professional to deal with all the likely issues they will encounter in catastrophic scenarios.

In circumstances where medical personnel are overwhelmed and access to modern technology is limited or non-existent, The Survival Medicine Handbook is the essential reference book for every library. Written in plain English, it has step-by-step instructions on how to identify and treat over 100 different medical issues.

The 2nd edition also covers alternative remedies for almost every possible medical condition in situations where modern healthcare is inaccessible. They have received more than 100 5-star reviews of their book at http://www.amazon.com/The-Survival-Medicine-Handbook-Guide/dp/0988872536/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_z.

The Alton’s latest project is the new survival board game “Doom and Bloom’s SURVIVAL!“. The game was a successful project at kickstarter.com and is currently available at the game’s website:

James Talmage Stevens Host ImageJames Talmage Stevens, Host and Author

James Talmage Stevens (aka Doctor Prepper™) began his career in the preparedness industry from the days of his youth. His family lived with his Grandparents immediately following the end of WWII. He learned the basics on the Pace farm in rural Guilford County (NC). Farm chores and gardening were standard fare––plowing the back 40 behind a stubborn mule was substandard! In 1974, upon finishing graduate school with 4 young children and no prospects for a job due to economic conditions during a national economic slump, James reverted to his past experiences on the farm and chronicled in his notebook, along with some hand-me-down recipes from his mother and grandmother. Noting there were no viable books that dealt with all the basics, i.e.: a broad range of food products, he began to utilize his analytical skills, organizing handwritten notes, recipes, and food lore into one volume of information. He spent his spare time while job-hunting, and Making the Best of Basics was created. Before going to press, the subtitle Family Preparedness Handbook was added to distinguish Basics… from the emergency preparedness genre of the existing Civil Defense and governmental agency information.
