Where There is No Doctor and Dentist – Free Download

Whether you’re dealing with a societal collapse or are living/traveling in a remote location far away from any hospital, understanding how to treat medical issues where there is no doctor around is of prime importance.
Perhaps the two most well-known books available for this type of information are the Where There is No Doctor and Where There is No Dentist books put out by the Hesperian Foundation. These books — especially Where There is No Doctor  — have become the “bible” of primary health care for community health workers and villagers in poor countries around the world (and popular among the survivalist community might I add).
Typically these books go for around $12 each on Amazon but now you can download them free directly from the Hesperian Foundation:

What You’ll Learn

Both books use simple language and hundreds of drawings (not world-class illustrations by any means but they do their job) to teach the layman about recognizing, treating and preventing common illnesses and injuries – it goes way beyond simple first-aid information.
Here’s a sample of some of the information you’ll learn:

Where There is No Doctor

  • How to properly administer medicine and dosage instructions
  • The proper methods of injecting medicine
  • How to deliver a baby
  • How to heal without medicines
  • Guidelines for the use of antibiotics
  • Home cures
  • Medicinal plants
  • Homemade casts
  • and more…

Where There is No Dentist

  • How to properly examine and diagnose dental issues
  • How to treat cavities, abscesses, infected sinuses, and more
  • How to prepare and insert homemade fillings
  • How to inject inside the mouth
  • How to safely and correctly remove a tooth
  • and more…
