Survival Medicine Hour #348

In this episode of the Survival Medicine Hour, Joe and Amy Alton, aka Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy, discuss the controversial non-ban of a natural pain reliever, Kratom, the only non-opiate that seems to give major benefits to many, as evidenced by numerous YouTube testimonials. Also, bears love the summer, and they’d love to stay out of your way. If they don’t, however, it can mean trouble for both you and the bear. Here’s some safety tips from Dr. Alton, whose home in Gatlinburg, Tennessee is home to many a black bear.

Also, the medic in survival scenarios may have to deal with gunshot wounds, but he/she’s more likely to deal with common infections, like those that affect the urinary tract. Learn how to identify, treat, and prevent UTIs, which can travel to the kidneys, and eventually become life-threatening if not treated.
