Good Home Treatment of Influenza - Dr Woodson
http://drgcwoodson.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Good-Home-Treatment-of-Influenza.pdf

A practical guide to home care of mild to severely ill patients that relies on a simple common sense approach

In the event of a bad flu epidemic or even a modest pandemic the healthcare systems everywhere will become quickly overwhelmed. I discuss the reasons why below but suffice it to say that this little booklet is one of those essential items that when not if that occurs you will need desperately at some time in the future. No one can predict when. The information contained within it will remain current I assure you because it does not rely on prescription medications etc. The elegance of this booklet is that it relies on mainly pre-20h century tech from a post-20thcentury knowledge base. I trust you will have had the foresight to download it and print several copies now while the power grid functions and store them safely. ---CONTINUED---
