In survival, the medicines eventually run out no matter how well you’ve prepared if the disaster knocks you off the grid for long enough. This is especially true for drugs for which you can only stockpile a limited quantity, simply because they’re too expensive. One item that isn’t too expensive is fish oil, commonly available in supplement or in FDA-approved prescription items. The scientific data shows that they can reduce triglycerides in your blood, a factor in coronary artery disease, and perhaps help in other ways.
So what is fish oil and is it of any use off the grid? Should you accumulate it in quantity in your medical storage? That’s your decision, but you’ll know a lot more about it after listening to Dr. Joe Alton of doomandbloom.net…
Also, Dr. Alton answers a question from someone suffering from symptoms similar to carpal tunnel syndrome (but not exactly). Could he have Guyon’s Syndrome instead? Learn about it in this episode of the new-format Survival Medicine Podcast!
Wishing you the best of health in good times or bad,
