[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NjM4MDkzXzgxQTUwOUFD] Asthma treatment post-collapse Asthma has been treated by healers since the earliest written healing record. We have documented recipes for breathing treatments and herbal remedies by the Greeks, Egyptians, Chinese, etc, and probably it meant any chronic breathing issue. Most likely it's always been treated before the invention of a written language. That doesn't mean they lived for very long unless they had those treatments, for one can get a serious allergic attack, and suffocate since you can't get enough oxygen, and pass out and die. Only in the foolishness of the early 20th Century was it labeled as a psychosomatic illness and it wasn't until the 1960's that again it was recognized as a true medical issue. How absurd we are! If you or your loved one has asthma, you're probably very concerned and prepping for it. That is wisdom. Still, those supplies will run out, so that means taking the time to learn about the historical means of treatment. Otherwise, you've only postponed a decline in your ability to breathe. For most Americans, the easiest way to deal with breathing issues is very limited use of jimson weed. http://medplant.nmsu.edu/Diseases/asthma/asthma_JimsonWeed.htm One must be very very careful using this herb. Like many plants, it contains an alkaloid, and it can be used for brocodialation (open the brochial tubes that lead to the lungs). It has a potential for abuse, so since in a collapse people will be looking for ways to band-aid their stress, a shaman must be vigilant to protect the community.

It's used by runners and some people with breathing disorders to assist them, but in some people it worsens their breathing. Use caution and common sense. There are many herbs with have a brochodialator effect. See: http://www.rosenlake.net/er/asthmanotes.html Since much of the issue is allergies, then treat the issue by removing the allergen. Sigh. One way of treating allergies is taking stinging nettles. While externally, they can cause an allergic skin reaction, they can be consumed as food or tea if prepared correctly and provide not only Vitamin C, but a natural antihistamine effect. Since you won't have Zyrtec, you've got to find ways to treat the root cause of your asthma. The main means of heating homes post-collapse will be wood fires in rocket mass stoves. While this way is vastly superior (8 x more efficient and mostly steam exhaust versus lots of carbon and fumes), this will still cause an issue for asthma sufferers. Your best bet is controlling your temperature by living underground to naturally raise the temperature to about 50deg F and layers of clothing. Of course, that has it's own issue with potential mold spores. There's no perfect solution. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
