[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0Njk5MTQ3X0MwQThBNjBC] [quote:Alexander:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0Njk4ODgwXzQ1MTQyMDRF] Here is another thread on basic essentials (heat/light/sanitation). http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message2061194/pg1 [/quote] Thanks Alexander! [b]Common medical complaints in a survival situation: menstrual cramping[/b] Menstrual cramps are caused because of the cyclical shedding of the uterine lining. The body must build up a blood supply to this tissue, so naturally for recycling it closes off this blood supply later since the tissue is being shed. This is called vasoconstriction. Then compounds are released which cause uterine contractions. Everyone knows to have midol, but if you didn't, the active ingredients are comprised of a pain reliever, caffeine to potentate it and to help people void and reduce bloating (fluid retention), and an antihistamine. Licorice root tea is very fine for menstrual cramps and provides pain relief. It's not hard to grow and has many uses, but use caution with people with heart issues. http://www.gardenguides.com/98850-grow-licorice-root.html Valerian is a very good perennial to grow. The roots provide both pain relief and calmness since it causes sedation. “Taking the edge off” is a very helpful herbal property for many things like nervousness. [It does smell bad growing in the garden, and it attracts mice and rats. Since you might need to feed your pets anyway, grow it far from the garden, then trap them.] Ginger can easily be grown from ginger root remnants and reduces the prostaglins that cause pain in menstrual cramping. So does raspberry leaf tea. It would be wisdom to plant raspberries. Buy some tea for now. Many many herbs are diuretics, probably most. Black tea stores well and cheaply provide caffeine and diuresis. See previous postings on stinging nettles made into a tea used as an antihistamine. It's naturally a diuretic. It's one of the best herbs to learn to forage for. http://www.naturalnews.com/036080_stinging_nettles_remedies_arthritis.html [b]I don't know you, but since all women in a household will eventually menstruate at the same time (very interesting phenomena, isn't it?), then knowing how to help them every month is a skill that any shaman with a lick of sense will learn. They'll be grateful, and you'll be a hero.[/b] [/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
