Product Description

In the Alton’s Pandemic Preparedness Guide, Dr. Joseph Alton, a Medical Doctor and Amy Alton, a Nurse-Practitioner, tell you what strategies will give you the best chance of keeping your family safe during infectious disease outbreaks. The Altons have been researching and writing about this subject for over 10 years.

***Notice: This item is now (April 10, 2020) in FULL COLOR! We have a limited number and as long as this message is up you will receive the full color edition for no additional cost. This is our first book offered in full color and we are really excited about it. Be safe, Amy & Dr. Joe Alton.

They discuss all you need to know about home care of the sick patient, face masks (what you need and how to reuse them) and personal protection equipment gear (how to put on and take them off safely), prevention measures called non-pharmaceutical intervention, including hand hygiene and social distancing, and even boosting your immune system to give you the best chance of preventing severe illness. You’ll learn all about various viral threats, but especially the pandemic diseases, and basics about what viruses are, the origins of viral research, the history of viral pandemics, and more.

The Altons discuss, in plain English, how viruses cause respiratory diseases like pneumonia and how they cause severe consequences. They talk you through the basics of immunity, mutations, and the different viral types. Pandemics cause the existing medical infrastructure to be stretched to the limit; even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization realize that the family caregiver, along with personal protection equipment and an effective sick room may help mild cases of viral infections more than overcrowded and understaffed hospitals.

This book is meant to help you defend against viral diseases that have been, are, and will be threats against your family and community.

Alton’s Pandemic Preparedness Guide is written by well-known medical preparedness advocates Joe Alton MD and Amy Alton ARNP, authors of the 2017 Book Excellence Award 1st place winner in medicine, “The Survival Medicine Handbook: …When Help is Not on the Way” and the 2020 Book Excellence Award 1st place winner in medicine “Alton’s Antibiotics and Infectious Disease, The Layman’s Guide…”. The pandemic of 2020 caused a great deal of damage, both physical and economical to just about every nation in the world. Hundreds of thousands were affected in many ways: sickness, death, financial ruin, disruption of the chain of supply, and much more.

You’ll also find out about how the 2020 pandemic went from being almost unknown to the general public before 2020 to one worldwide issue for humankind. Lessons have taught us harsh lessons, and it’s clear that we are still in the initial stages of the war against all viral infectious diseases.

If your concern is how to prepare for outbreaks of viral disease, Alton’s Pandemic Preparedness is the book you’ll want in your library.
