The professional staff at Doctor’s Nutrition relies on facts about your health needs based on low cost detailed lab work. Instead of you guessing at what is missing with your nutritional needs, and selecting vitamins or minerals over the counter that may or may not work.

Doctor’s Nutrition delivers free consultations based on lab work results to help get your health back to optimal. They do this with pharmaceutical grade vitamins and minerals sold only to doctor’s. What that means to you, is that their products are generally 3 to 4 times stronger than anything you can buy over the counter.

Their products are actually strong enough to move the numbers on lab work just like prescription medications without the side effects. They use LabCorp for their lab testing because it is the gold standard of labs and they have labs available throughout the United States, so there is generally one local to you in any state. So, if you are ti red of “Guessing” at why don’t I feel good, let us answer that question for you and get you back to health so you can have a life worth living.

Episode-1143- The Patriot Nurse on Medical Prep and Medical Myths

Visit ThePatriotNurse.com to learn more from Rachel The Patriot Nurse.

The Patriot Nurse is an actively practicing RN, with a BSN.  In addition to her work in the United States, she has also traveled extensively for medical mission work.

She takes a very balanced approach to prepping that is decidedly reason-based.  Many people, after prepping for awhile, begin to realize their preps are covered in the food and weapons arenas.  Medical preparedness is decidedly less glitzy, but it is integral to a well-rounded plan for thriving during times of difficulty.  The Patriot Nurse’s mission it to fill that void for the average Joe.

She is currently conducting a nation wide tour teaching her clinics called Medical Prep 101 and Medical Prep 201 respectively.  She may be coming to a town near you soon in fact.

We had a great conversation in this interview, we discussed some harsh medical realities along the way and a few myths that can do preppers real harm in some situations.  We also discussed being honest about your needs, your skills and your preps in assessing your next moves.

Episode-1057- Zero to Prepared – Fast, Simple and Low Cost- Part 2

Today we cover part two of going from zero to prepared.  If you haven’t listened to part one of this series yet, you really should do so first.  You will notice that title of this episode ends in “low cost” vs. “cheap”.

As a marketer there is a rule, if you can eliminate a word do it, but that won’t work here.  Cheap sets the wrong tone for what we will discuss today, we are talking about protecting your life, your property and the lives of those you love, one doesn’t go “cheap” with such things.

Today may seem like a basic beginners show but I will bet even the seasoned prepper will gain something and if nothing else will be better able to help others get started.  Prepping doesn’t have to be complex or expensive, what it must be is specific to a set of goals, today we talk about simple ways to make that happen.

Episode-717- Every Day Carry and Beyond

EDC includes multipurpose tools.Today we are going to discuss EDC (every day carry) and a little about BOBs (bug out bags), GO Bags, medical kits and active shooter bags.

Today we will focus though mostly on the EDC aspect and cover the others only briefly to explain how they supplement and are supplemented by your every day carry.

There are also links below to many of the individual items I covered today.  These are all items I personally carry or have carried and therefore I am personally endorsing them based on real world experience.

The big thing to keep in mind with EDC is even the best stuff is just stuff, the real EDC you need to focus on is your personal skill set in improvising what ever is available in any situation.
