One big thing he gave up was “leaded” Mountain Dew. He drinks a diet Dew a few times a week now. Otherwise he drinks water or I make some cold brewed tea with a little honey.
People don’t realize how many calories they’re drinking from sugar.
We have cut out rice, pasta and potatoes.
Even though he only lost 16 pounds, it seemed to really make a difference.

Blood work results after eating low(er) carb, losing 16 pounds and taking ACV each night for 3 months:

A1C – from 7.8 to 6.4
Glucose -from 180’s to 111

He did notice more tummy trouble when he forgot to pack his vinegar last week in combination with eating out off his normal diet at home.
We will continue on our plan and see if it goes down again in 3 months.

Mrs FP

Woo Hoo! That is terrific. I’ll keep trying it and see what happens to my A1C.

Medical Experts • How to treat shock

August 16, 2017 rickyticky 0

This has been on my mind for a bit. How do you treat shock when the are no hospitals or when they are over filled? I know when SHTF people will more than likely go into shock and I want to know how to treat it. I look up how to treat it, but most of the time it’s just “cover them with a blanket and call for an ambulance.”. This doesn’t help much.

You may be correct. I know absolutely nothing about it. It was actually RR’s guest that made the statement. I don’t know anything about RR, except that I don’t really like her much and I have absolutely no idea why. :evil: She is just one of those people that rub me the wrong way….like she’s always acting fake or something. I lose absolutely no sleep over it and would never watch the show.

Although, back to the ACV tabs…..for myself, I take it when my gut doesn’t feel quite right and it seems to help get me feeling better quicker.

I heard on Rachael Ray last week that turmeric is only effective if taken along with pepper (black pepper I think). I have no idea whether or not that’s true. I do not watch RR or any other talk shows as they typically just drive me batty…..but I just saw this blip as I was walking by and the TV was left on. It was promptly turned off as I passed by. I don’t take turmeric so I was not interested, but this thread made me think of it. Just thought this might be helpful to you.

I often make AC Vinegar tea. Heat a mug of water, add a tbs. or two (start with less, build to more), a little honey, and top with a shake of cinnamon. It is an acquired taste, but not bad.

DON’T take before bed, or you will be going to the bathroom all night long. It took a while to make the connection. 🙂

I also use Mrs. Braggs.

I can’t speak to diebetes or weight loss, but ACV is the best thing I’ve found for heart burn. A slug in water. And when I had a morning drink everyday of ACV and honey in warm/hot water, I had much less tummy trouble. I use mrs Bragg’s raw ACV and raw, local honey. It kinda tastes like tangy cider. Thanks for the reminder–I need to start back on that.

I’ve taken ACV tablets in the past to keep mosquitos from biting. I’m not very consistent with taking pills so I’m not sure how well that really works. I do have ACV tabs in my med pantry though.

However, for weight loss and to lower your A1C, you might want to consider intermittent fasting. I have been doing this (5:2 method) for the last month and have been having some great results (noticeable reduction in belly fat) and it’s really not as difficult as I thought it would be. Do your own research. There’s lots of books on Amazon about it with lots of interesting comments by folks who have done it. Just a thought if you want to get off meds and lose weight…..

Thank you. I agree about the side effects. Seems like once I got started on the meds I could not lose weight. Also as time has gone on I need more and more meds to keep the A1C under control. It’s expensive and it stinks to have to carry a pharmacy with me any time I travel. I’ll try the shot glass Idea and forward it to a friend who suffers from gout.

the thing about antibiotics, other drugs, first aid supplies and other medical gear you can acquire – this will be the hard part of the equation of medical care – finding knowable med people could be the eazy part …. the hospitals and clinics closing down doesn’t mean the staff went down with them …. going to be empty handed professionals of all flavors floating about – getting stitched up by a wayward neurosurgeon in exchange for a decent meal beats an infection any day ….

I have been stocking and storing these antibiotics for 5 years. They are indeed the same antibiotics you’d buy from a pharmacy. I’ve used them a number of times for myself, hubby and our dog Scotty. Scotty at times comes down with Kennel Cough, and other times a bacterial skin infection. Our Vet put him on Keflex 250mg (a childs dose), 2 pills a day for 10 days. The pills did the job, plus now I don’t pay for a visit to the vet, or his expensive antibiotics. However, should we become sick with something I’m not familiar with I’d see our Doctor.
