    Herbal Medicine In Times of Survival

    The Survival Medicine Hour on September 14, 2013 with Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy discuss their Wound Care Classes, Flood Safety and the recent devastating  fire on the Jersey Shore boardwalk.

    What is a Flood?

    The definition of a flood is an overflow of water that submerges land which is normally dry.  Flooding may occur as an overflow of water from water bodies, such as a seacoast, river or lake, in which the water runs over or breaks levees, resulting in the escape of large amounts of water into populated areas. It may also occur due to an accumulation of rainwater on saturated ground.

    Some floods develop slowly, while others (called flash floods), can develop in a very short time and affect areas where it wasn’t even raining.  As a result, it often catches the population downriver by surprise, causing severe damage and loss of life.

    Nurse Amy presents Part 2 of her interview with Herbalist Cat Ellis. They discuss specific medical issues and which herbs would be useful, plus a lot more awesome Herbal Medicine information. Growing your own medicinal garden is both rewarding and beneficial; in times of trouble, you will likely have limited access to pharmaceuticals. The learning curve when gardening can be steep, so don’t delay planting those medicinal seeds until the situation is critical.
