While there are other options to get extra nutrients even when confined indoors, like eating sprouts, toguardagainst vitamindeficienciesmany preppers add vitamins to their stores of food and other emergency supplies. All vitamins are equal, and any vitamin is better than no vitamin at all right? Or so many retailers would like you to believe. In fact, they aren’t equal at all. What Kind of Vitamin is Best? Many grocery store vitamins, including Centrum and OneADay aren’t the best quality on the market; don’t even get me started on gummy vitamins.Besides the fact that gummies are full of sugar, artificial flavors, and artificial colors – along with most grocery store vitamins gummies are SYNTHETIC vitamins. Gummies also are full of citric acid (vitamin C) and because the gelatin sticks to your teeth and/or your kid’s teeth, it eats away at the tooth enamel where as with normal vitamins there would be little or no contact with your teeth – but fear not once the damage is done there is enough sugar left in the mouth for a great start on some cavities.

Heatstroke Symptoms and Emergency Treatments
How would you handle the stress and anxiety associated with a natural or man-made disaster, economic crisis or act of terroism? Here’s an important list of what many essential oil experts consider to be the most important Emergency EOsto have on hand. Lavender:This is the Swiss Army knife of EOs. Heals burns, cuts, relieve insomnia, reduces stress, a powerful antihistimine, bug bites, bruises, sleep deprivation, inflammation, sunburn, lice. Soothing to skin irritations, earache and depression. Lavender is the number one essential oil to have in your survival kit, in fact I would keep two bottles. Lemon: known for it’s cleansing ability. Add a few drops to water to purify (this was suggested in a seminar I attended but I have no proof, however, in dire circumstance, I would do it).

Do not give aspirin or acetaminophen to reduce a high body temperature that can occur with heatstroke. These medicines may cause problems because of the body’s response to heatstroke. If the person is awake and alert enough to swallow, give the person fluids [32 fl oz (1 L) to 64 fl oz (2 L) over 1 to 2 hours] for hydration. Most people with heatstroke have an altered level of consciousness and cannot safely be given fluids to drink. You may have to help. Make sure the person is sitting up enough so that he or she does not choke.
