Spring is nearly here. Millions of Americans are taking advantage of nicer weather to enjoy the great outdoors … and are coming home with bug bites, scrapes, sprains and allergic reactions.
When do you need to see a doctor, and when can you treat these kinds of minor maladies yourself? Ask James Hubbard, The Survival Doctor.
A long-time family physician and survival medicine expert, he has helped thousands of people learn essential first aid skills through his popular blog. Dr. Hubbard focuses on evidence-based medicine, not fly-by-night fads or old wives’ tales.
He will share proven natural remedies that have been shown to work in studies and are recommended by many doctors, including:
- Why honey works as well as antibacterial ointment in treating wounds–and is more effective than cough medicine for children’s coughs.
- A surprising use for cherry juice: it can reduce soreness after exercising.
- Three free or inexpensive options for soothing frustrating poison ivy rashes.
- How to use a neti pot to calm seasonal allergy symptoms.
- Headache stretches that can be as good as or better than over-the-counter pain medicines for treating tension headaches and migraines.
