As you know I am greatly concerned with a coming social collapse due to economic default of the dollar.
One of the things that will greatly be effected is medical help. Understanding how to treat medical issues when there is no doctor around is going to be critical.
Perhaps the two most well-known books available for this type of information are the Where There is No Doctor and Where There is No Dentist books put out by the Hesperian Foundation. These books — especially Where There is No Doctor — have become the “bible” of primary health care for community health workers and villagers in poor countries around the world and popular among the preparedness community.
Tracye and I now own both these books and they have helped us greatly.
I believe that when social unrest coupled with "Bank Day", one area that will be greatly effected as well as diminished will be medical treatment.
Typically these books go for around $12 each on Amazon but now you can download them free directly from the Hesperian Foundation:

What You’ll Learn
Both books use simple language and hundreds of drawings (not world-class illustrations by any means but they do their job) to teach the layman about recognizing, treating and preventing common illnesses and injuries – it goes way beyond simple first-aid information.
Here’s a sample of some of the information you’ll learn:
Where There is No Doctor
- How to properly administer medicine and dosage instructions
- The proper methods of injecting medicine
- How to deliver a baby
- How to heal without medicines
- Guidelines for the use of antibiotics
- Home cures
- Medicinal plants
Where There is No Dentist
- How to properly examine and diagnose dental issues
- How to treat cavities, abscesses, infected sinuses, and more
- How to prepare and insert homemade fillings
- How to inject inside the mouth
- How to safely and correctly remove a tooth
I highly encourage you downloading these books right now as well as purchasing the literal books themselves. You do not know if you will have access to electricity or your computer or not, so having both on hand is very important.
If you have purchased TEOTWAWKI -City Version, these two books as well as other important ebooks, articles and videos are part of that data dvd.
It isn't going to be the cool gear that you have that helps you in the hard times, it will be what you know that will make the difference.
