Top 10 Medical Supplies To Have On Hand

By: Curtis Wayne 0 Comments   3/2/2019

One of the best ways to avoid getting sick is keeping your immune system strong. And when you do get sick, having basic medical supplies on hand is the best way to quickly reduce the spread.

If you have time, make a list of the common medical supplies that you use for your family and stock up on those items.  For example, some of common medical supplies probably include items to help for the common viruses like the Cold and Flu.

Each time you go to the Doctor and get a recommendation for over the counter medical supplies, take notes in a medical journal so that you can read what you wrote next time you have the same thing. Also when you buy your medical items talk to your Pharmacist about them to learn about other options.

Top 10 Medical Supplies to have on hand;

  1. Multivitamins – for the entire family, children and adults sizes
  2. Vitamin D3 – especially in the winter when you are out of the sun
  3. Band-aids
  4. Ibuprofen/Tylenol
  5. Cough drops
  6. Pepto-Bismol/Antacid tablets
  7. Temperature checker
  8. Allergy Relief
  9. Rash Relief – like diaper rash ointment or anti-itching cream
  10. Pain relief cream

Be sure to check with you Dr. before using any of these, but once you learn about them you can stock up and begin taking care of your own family for minor sicknesses.

Find a place in your home, maybe a shelf in the bathroom, to begin collecting a small supply common medical items. You can even buy a few small containers to help organize items together for the same sickness, like the common Cold. 

That way you can quickly find all the items you have in one place and believe me when you get sick you don’t want to spend time digging around looking for your cough drops.

Who Killed the American Family?

American families are the backbone of this nation. The American family is the fundamental institution that provided the Founding Fathers with the emotional support and driving courage to face the tyrannical government that threatened their very existence. The American family used to be the fundamental institution of our stable, liberty-loving, and very successful society. It is the essential building block of a free society with limited government.

Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse

In discussions of today's economic meltdown and what to do about it, the Federal Reserve is a stealth helicopter: it never shows up on the radar. With the exception of a few esoteric specialists and those Ron Paul Revolutionaries who burst into chants of "Abolish the Fed!" Historian Thomas Woods notes in this important book, the Federal Reserve bears a large part of the blame for the mess we're in. In the first part of "Meltdown," Woods shows how both in theory and in practice, Fed policy fueled an artificial boom and is now leading us to a much larger meltdown.

I will say that this books' solution is more regulation, which never works because you cannot regulate evil - and evil is the real cause.
