MARK L LONGOBARDI DMD - Not just for preppers
I just finished reading this amazing book! It is one of the most comprehensive guides that I have read (and I have read many). It truly is an encyclopedia of self medical care and is over 900 pages LONG!!! He teaches the reader how to make soap, wound-care products, insecticide, sun block, toothpaste and so much more. It includes how to set up an emergency medical chest, with descriptions of everything you need to treat any medical problem that could arise. It also has a great reading list to further explore any of the subjects he writes about. Best of all, it's easy to read and understand!!!
Debra Joy - it is an awesome reference!
This book is an encyclopedic length reference manual of over 900 pages , including everything you need to know to treat any medical problem from routine fevers to snakebites , there is even a chapter on Ebola . The section on how to build your own medical chest is especially helpful so you will be able to treat problems when there are no doctors or medicine available. There is a large section on nutrition and how to grow healthy plants from the soil up . It also teaches you how to make everything you will need in a survival situation.....Soap, toothpaste, sunblock....For the Preppers, it is an awesome reference! For EVERYONE...it is an awesome guide to everyday needs too. VERY INTERESTING read...Prepper or not!
Leah Boccaccio - The Bible of Survival
This is an incredibly well-informed book which exceeds its intentions; the information is helpful for all situations, not just a post apocalyptic scenario. Whether you are an avid boater, private pilot, camper, hunter, or outdoorsman of any kind, the knowledge embedded throughout this book will prove itself useful. This should be a staple of anyone’s bug-out bag or home first-aid kit. It is written in such a way that is understandable to everyone, not just those in the medical profession. Definitely worth its weight — and it weighs a lot :-P
Sharon Campbell - Not Just For Prepper's Only, Survival Guide
The Doomsday Book of Medicine, has something for everyone! It is a go-to-now book for those emergent times when you are not near a hospital or do not have medical personnel handy. Dr. Ralph clearly teaches step by step what to do when bit by animals, insects, snakes...ect. He identifies and explains what to do in those urgent care times such as fevers, head traumas, UTI's, burns, dehydration, diarrhea, wound care, broken bones, diabetes.There are even informative teaching chapters on probiotics, amino acids, fish oils, vitamins, healthy fats from oils/seeds, and essential oils; preparing your body for a healthier you! After reading these 900 pages of important information, you will want all your loved ones and friends to have a copy of this book also. As a Home Care Nurse and a mother, I truly appreciate the labor of love that Dr. Ralph has put into this survival guide..
Queenie - Get this book!!!
I'm impressed. As an ICU/ER RN I was not sure I would get as much out of it as I did - but WOW this is the quintessential guide to preparing for doomsday, or living off the grid, or just learning about a myriad of things helpful in healthcare and 1st aide. No matter what you hope to get from this book, you'll get that and much much more!!! I encourage you to buy it, read it cover to cover and give it to friends and loved ones as gifts. WOW
Javajive69 - MUST HAVE!!!
This is a must have reference book. It is written in easy to understand language and very well organized. After Hurricane Katrina everyone should have learned that when an disaster happens, you are on your own. The Government will NOT be there for YOU. So we all need to take responsibility for ourselves and loved one. Benjamin Franklin said it best, “An ounce of prevention, is worth a pound of cure.” It applies more today than ever before. Potential threats are more numerous than at any point in history. Dr. La Guardias' book is a great place to start preparing. Example: It seemed that every winter I came down with one bug or another. I read the section on “Essential Health” and followed the recommendations. As a result, I got through this winter without so much as a sniffle! So read and prepare. A must have for any self reliant person, This book is overflowing with USEFUL information!
Bob Jordan Dallas, Texas- Best Explanation of Practical Medicine.
I was a technical trainer for 10 years and love Dr. La Guardia"s teaching style. It is easy to read, very informative, with easily understood practical information. I love that he writes in a personal story style which feels like a small town personal doctor would use. He has cleared up many things that I had mis-learned or mis-understood in other popular writings. He provides more than one answer to most topics which allows me to find the answer that best speaks to my thinking and situation. Pharmaceuticals, essential oils, crisis planning, and common sense all integrated into personal wellness training. Don"t let the Doomsday in the title throw you. The info is very practical for the here and now as well as after a crisis. This book serves as an easy to read story, reference book, and practical training medical book!
Jessica Stephenson - MUST HAVE!!!
Well written,Easy to read, chock-full of useful information ...This book is a must have for every personal library!
Webmaster www.planpreparesurvive.com - GREAT BOOK!
All in all, this book is a great resource to include in your survival library, with it describing many medical situations and illnesses that could easily happen to you on the road. These situations may not seem like a huge deal at the time, but without the help of a hospital, this book could be a lifesaver. My recommendation is to buy this book and keep it in the car or home for quick reference at a time when medical help might not be available right away. Better yet, put it in your survival storehouse for well, you know!
