Comments for-$25 WEEKLY PREP LIST FOR FLU AND FIRST AID HOME TREATMENTS
Posted 05 November 2007 - 04:59 PM
Thanks so much for the list, it's been excellent in helping me get our flu kit together. I ran across this stuff called "Flu Reduce" (http://www.healthyrelief.com/?products-fluReduce) at the grocery store. I was wondering if it was any good? It's first ingredient is oscillococcinum but it has other homeopathic stuff in it that I wasn't sure about.

I came accross one thing though, that made me think. I can not use Latex. Alot of people can't, so your preps should include non-latex gloves as well, even if you or no one in your family is currently allergic. The allergy can come up suddenly and although for a lot of people it is mostly localized skin irritation, for some it is much more serious. My daughter's kids can't even have toys made with latex because she starts having trouble breathing if she accidently touches any of them. We play it safe by keeping them out of her house. She actually came close to dying once because someone through latex gloves in the non-latex BP cuff at the hospital. They took them out, but the cuff had picked up something from the Latex and she had a serious reaction. So this is nothing for us to play around with. Allergies are serious and if you do not have quick access to medical care, they can be deadly.
I keep vynel gloves at home, but I am looking into getting some Nitrile gloves. They protect better than vynel, just like the latex do, but are not latex. I use them at work sometimes, in fact they have started to put them in some of the sterile kits now.
Just thought I might suggest including nitrile or vynel gloves in your preps.

I was just reading the thread again (a refresher!) and was thinking of how I could isolate a family member if need be. My master bedroom has a bathroom, which would be very convenient, but all of my ceilings are cathedral-type. I don't have a room in my house (it's a one floor ranch with angled ceilings) where I could seal off with plastic. My master bedroom has a "sitting room", which I turned into an 8x10 pantry. There is a half wall dividing the rooms, but no way to seal off all of my food/preps from the "sick" area by the bathroom.
I think I need to pick up a commode and use my spare bedroom as a sick room if needed. But there again is the problem of not being able to seal off the room to isolate a sick person. The door frame is squared, I could tape off the doorway, but that won't give me the yellow and green zones. I need to think more on this subject and see what I can figure out.
