It can be very scary to have a medical emergency but even more scary if you’re all alone with no one to help. In this video, I explain what to do if you have chest pain or you think you’re having a heart attack and your alone.
If you’ve ever wondered what to do when you’re experiencing a medical or life threatening emergency and you find yourself alone, you may get the answer you’re looking for right here, on this episode of RoyOnRescue!
Hello Rescue Fans,I can’t wait another moment to get this post out! I’ve just been made aware of a local University that has yet another victim of rape! I know there is a lot of information missing about how this happened and if it was preventable at all, but there is one thing I know. At the very least, arming oneself with pepper spray, available at almost every sports store or department store in home defense section, could help reduce the number of preventable criminal and sexual assaults. I urge you rescue fans, please spread the word to everyone you know. I want to begin a movement of arming everyone with basic knowledge and products that could help save a life and prevent this horrible crime from affecting even one more person. Please, share this post with everyone you know as I begin the war on assault and provide training and knowledge about how anyone can help prevent these crimes from ever happening again. What can you do today? Go to your local sporting goods store or department store and get pepper spray that can spray a stream at least 10 yards. I will be providing additional training on how to protect yourself with it but in the mean time, here’s a video on how to use pepper spray. Get it today and let me know when you’ve taken action. Twitter: @royonrescue or email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s tell the story, empower everyone, and prevent rape and criminal assault. Let’s take action TODAY!
This morning, I received an email from a Rescue Fan that is planning on going on Memorial weekend vacation, but woke up with a really sore throat. With no time to see their doctor, they wondered if there were any over the counter or home remedies that they could use while on vacation. Here was my advice and if you can relate, I hope it helps.
The only way to know for sure if the source of your sore throat is a Strep Infection is to get a test at the doctor’s office or med center. It sounds like you don’t have time for that but if you’re concerned about it being something serious, like Strep, than call your doctor, explain that you’re going on vacation and see if they can “fast track” you through to rule out Strep and get Antibiotics if needed.
Now, if it’s not Strep and just a virus or allergies etc. there are some things that have been found to be helpful which can be found at any drug store/grocery store or home pantry. These won’t get rid of the Strep Bacteria but if it’s just a sore or irritated throat, it may help.
Here’s a combination of home remedy and over the counter help.
-Warm to Hot Tea Lemon/Honey Tea: Caffeine free is best for rehydration but any tea can work. Fresh squeezed honey would be best and local honey.
–Gargling with Warm Salt Water: 1/2 teaspoon iodized salt, gargle with head back and spit water out after each gargle for about 10 seconds each. Half a glass of saltwater is fine. Then, don’t rinse your mouth afterward. Tongue may feel a little funny, lips too but that’s from the salt water and should go away.
–Chloraseptic Spray and Lozenges: I like Chloraseptic brand throat spray, and though it can’t claim to cure a bacterial infection, I don’t think it can hurt because it does have some antiseptic properties along with it’s numbing effect. Offers temporary relief but may be of help.
-Stay Hydrated: We should drink at least 6-8 8oz glasses of water per day. More if we’re sick, exercising or drinking caffeine.
-Drink Broth: It’s usually quite salty, warm and doesn’t scratch your throat.
Your body needs its rest in order to heal. If you’re feeling tired, try and get some sleep. Usually, vacations are anything but rest, but regardless that’s my advice.
I hope you’re feeling better soon and I hope this helps!”
