Invariably any illness or injury will strike on the weekend, when you’re camping or some other situation when getting medical attention is not available, or at least not readily available.
It is also wise to be prepared in case of a disaster situation when medical care is not available. The Essential Survival Guide to Medical Preparedness Book is a great informational book you can use as a supplement professional medical care when you can’t get to help right away.
My family dealt with our fair share of hurricanes when I was growing up. Truly, by the grace of God we were never hurt, but I can remember life being disrupted with power outages, rough living at home and mom worrying about all the things moms worry about.
I’ll just be frank here. We are living in perilous times and watching the news, we can Bible prophecy being fulfilled right before our eyes. Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, famines, pestilences, wars and rumors of wars.
Jesus tells us in Matthew 24:8 “All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
In Luke 21:9 Jesus tells us “…these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.”
When natural (and man-made) disasters happen, our everyday services are disrupted. People are having to rely on their own knowledge and resourcefulness to take care of themselves and their families.
You may have seen the headline where the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that the age of antibiotics has come to an end, Period. Here’s an interview with the CDC’s Dr. Arjun Srinivasan that goes into more depth.
If you haven’t already, I sincerely encourage you to learn all you can about taking care of yourself and your family so you are prepared. A month or more ago I was blog hopping..you know, follow a link that leads to another and before you know it you’ve stumbled upon some really great information. That’s how I found this book.
I don’t know how many times I’ve pulled out this book to look up something – spider bites, oral care, cuts and what have you. It covers a very extensive array of conditions and for each one, it lists essential oils, herbs, reflexology and where appropriate acupressure (which I know nothing about). I’ve been so impressed with it, I became an affiliate. The Essential Survival blog is packed with first aid and health care information as well.
Julie is a Young Living distributor and her essential oil references are to the YL products. However, even if you aren’t, don’t let that stop you from learning from her extensive first aid and health care knowledge. As the resurgence in essential oils for first aid and health care has increased, I see God using many people to renew our awareness about the alternative He provided long before western medicine.
