Description

The Survival Medicine Handbook(tm) is a guide for those who want to be medically prepared for any disaster where help is
NOT on the way. This book is written by Joe Alton, M.D. and Amy Alton, A.R.N.P., the premiere Medical Preparedness
Professionals from the top ten survival website www.doomandbloom.net. This book is available in print and kindle, and
print book buyers can take advantage of Kindle's matchbook program to also buy the digital version for just $2.99
(normal retail $24.99). The expanded second edition of the 3 category Amazon bestseller (Survival Skills, Disaster
Relief, Safety/First Aid) is geared to enable the non-medical professional to deal with all the likely issues they will
encounter in catastrophic scenarios. The Survival Medicine Handbook (tm) is not your standard first aid book. It assumes
that no hospital or doctor is available in the aftermath of a catastrophic event. This book will give you the tools to
handle injuries and illness for when YOU might be the end of the line with regards to your family's medical well-being.
In circumstances where medical personnel are overwhelmed and access to modern technology is limited or non-existent, The
Survival Medicine Handbook(tm) is the essential reference book for every library. Written in plain English, you'll find
step-by-step instructions on how to identify and treat over 100 different medical issues. The second edition also covers
alternative remedies for almost every possible medical condition in situations where modern healthcare is inaccessible.
