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.

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.

The Truth Behind Winter Clothing, Winter Safety Made Real, Part 5

The previous four parts of WSMR have presented the physical science and physiological principles behind staying warm in winter.  If you can keep all parts of your body warm, then winter and cold weather are not an issue.  Once you know how things actually work you can find or build whatever you may need.

With all of this back ground, in today’s class and subsequent classes we will be applying this new understanding to take care of the body with proper clothing, nutrition, attitudes and practices. When properly executed there can be no suffering in the cold and cold injuries impossible.

We’ll explore where layering fits in the scheme of winter clothing, what their limits and problems are along with how to tune them up for best performance.  The last third of the program will be on clothing evaluation to give you an idea of how to look at winter clothing with performance in mind and not just rely on slick ads, hangtags and well meaning salesmen expounding habits and traditions used in the winter.

Jim Phillips is a nationally known speaker and teacher who has professionally taught thousands of classes all across the United States for 40 years.

Jim is a strong advocate of self-reliance living and family preparedness.  He developed an entire preparedness curriculum by asking himself the question “What if?” and then setting out to discover what actually does and does not work.

Economic Collapse in Cuba a Foreshadowing for USA?

Marjory summarizes numerous interviews of Cuban citizens who experienced a total economic collapse and faced starvation after the fall of the Soviet Union.  The social order reversed, where farmers and gardeners became more important than lawyers and doctors as all citizens scrambled to grow food to replace imports that stopped.  Listen for keys to how Cuban’s survived as guidance for how American’s should look to prepare for when the Yankee dollar goes through its collapse.  Great opportunity to learn from Cuban suffering to anticipate and minimize our own challenges from future U.S. economic collapse.

 

Winter Safety & Self Reliant Living Made Real, Part 2

Join Jim as he discusses cold weather survival and preparedness part 3. In this episode, he talks about heat loss via radiation, thermal conductivity, clothing insulators, and much, much more.

Presented in Part-1 of Winter Safety Made Real was the footing for this whole WSMR series: the purpose and approach to winter safety, along with “Why Winter Experiences Fail”, “The Taboos of Cold Weather”, “The Wives’ Tales of Winter”, and An Introduction to PALS™.

Part-2 presents the key points and performance possibilities using PALS™ (the Phillips Arctic Living System™) and why Jim does what he does and the benefit it can bring others.  One of the most important parts in this presentation will be the in depth explanation of the body’s physiological response to the cold and the key steps to keeping hands and feet warm.  Possessing this understanding alone can dramatically change a person’s comfort and safety in the cold.
