    Thanks to OffGrid Recoil Magazine for publishing the following article of mine on medical improvisations!

    “We live in a world where established safety measures, if followed, prevent a lot of injuries. Unfortunately, they’ll never prevent all injuries. There were an estimated 45 million incidents of trauma in the U.S. last year that required an emergency room visit. Car wrecks, outdoor injuries, industrial accidents, and other mishaps contribute to a whole lot of hurt in good times. That leaves us to wonder: How would this change in bad times?

    Well, you wouldn’t have all the modern equipment and have to improvise! For the rest of the article, check out OffGrid’s website at https://www.offgridweb.com/survival/medical-improvisations-diy-techniques-for-survival-first-aid-hygiene/

    Wishing you the best of health in good times or bad,
