Assign Me a Post: What’s Your Biggest Survival Medicine Worry?

by James Hubbard, MD, MPH Picture the time you’re preparing for: you can’t get professional medical care for a few days—or longer. Maybe you’re hiking or homesteading off the grid. Or a snowstorm has shut down roads, or an earthquake has caused mass casualties. Or maybe you’re living in a long-term disaster situation that’ll keep society out of commission for a while. When you think of this scenario, what’s your number-one fear, survival medicine-wise? […]

The Top 10 Most Popular Posts of the Year

by James Hubbard, MD, MPH Thank you to for making 2014 another record year for The Survival Doctor. Compared to 2013 our viewership was up by over 10 percent (around 4.5 million visits total). And not surprisingly, our number one most-viewed post remained the same. Otherwise, the most popular posts really ran the gamut—earwax removal and fast heart rates, children’s rashes and knee injuries, eyelid infections and finger infections. What about you? Did you learn anything new from any of them? Or perhaps they helped refresh your knowledge a bit? Which did you find the most interesting? […]

The Top 10 Most Popular Posts About Surviving Colds and the Flu

>> Looking for a meaningful last-minute gift? Click here for sales on my survival training courses. No shipping required. by James Hubbard, MD, MPH The difference between cold and flu symptoms is somewhat a question of severity. Whereas a cold may make you feel like you’ve just run a race, the flu makes you feel like someone beat you with a baseball bat along the way. A cold can make you ache and feel fatigued. You can feel miserable and even run a low-grade fever or 100 F or so. But the flu puts you in the bed (where you should be). If you don’t listen to your body and take care of yourself, you could end up in the hospital. People die from the flu. Just in time to celebrate the upcoming cold and flu season, here are my most popular posts about surviving colds and the flu for 2014. […]

The Top 10 Most Popular Winter-Safety Posts of the Year

by James Hubbard, MD, MPH Here in Colorado, we’ve already had some really cold days and then some sneaky mild ones. Sneaky because I get all comfortable going out with a light jacket one day; the next, the sky is clear, and it looks the same—from the inside. I walk out, and bam, it’s biting cold. Or the day is pretty mild and the night is freezing. Winter is upon us, and I have this sneaky feeling it’s going to get colder before it gets warmer.  So I went back and reviewed my previous posts for winter safety tips (hey, sometimes even I don’t remember every detail I’ve written). And below I’ve linked to the 10 most popular ones for 2014. Even if you’ve read them, I’d suggest you, like me, could benefit from a review, to get you ready for the upcoming cold. And even if you live in a warm climate, check out number eight for sure. […]
