Survival Medicine Hour: Dengue Fever, Tubal Pregnancy, Comfrey, More

Share Button


The mosquito-borne disease Dengue Fever is a virus that is causing community-wide outbreaks in various regions throughout the world, including Singapore, Nicaragua, and Bangladesh. Joe Alton MD and Amy Alton ARNP discuss an infection that could 1)cause no symptoms, 2)make you sick for 1-2 weeks, or 3)kill you (luckily, just a tiny minority). Find out how to identify and prevent Dengue fever.coup

Also, Joe Alton MD discusses a pregnancy that implants in the Fallopian tube instead of the uterus, also called an ectopic (out of place) pregnancy. He relates a personal history of a family member who suffered internal bleeding as a result of a ruptured tube, and gives thoughts on what to do if you were off-the-grid.

Plus, Dr. Alton answers questions about orthopedic issues and the herb comfrey in his role as a member of Jack Spirko’s popular Survival Podcast Expert Council. Is comfrey useful for orthopedic pain?

All this and more in this episode of the Survival Medicine Hour with Joe and Amy Alton!

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

Joe and Amy
