Part 1: Stop Pain and Illness In You and Your Whole Family!!!

This is the start of a series of articles I am writing to put a stop to unnecessary Illness in our Veterans and Veterans around the world

It is now time we Veterans and Active Military stopped relying only on Toxic Drugs and find out about the giant advancements that are occurring with All Natural Healing and more importantly Preventative Medicine that has all but disappeared in the United States.
Yes, I mean Healing as opposed to becoming sicker and sicker by listening to the garbage we are being fed by Big Pharma and their companies Stockholders. Their Greed is Killing us!!!
If you really want to get healthy and remove pain from your life than plug into this series of articles.
I will give you the info you need to eliminate close to 100% of any and all physical and mental illnesses from the lives of you and your friends and family.
Many of you know that I write books to help veterans like myself. My first book is “The Warzone PTSD Survivors Guide”
It has required years of research into mental and physical health. One of the greatest things to come from that is meeting doctors inside and out of the VA System. These doctors and clinicians have moved away from the toxic drug soup that Big Pharma pushes at us.
I wrote in my book the VA thinks PTSD stands for “Please Take Some Drugs”.
The great news is that through my research and talking to all these enlightened doctors that there now are all natural herbs, plants, plant extracts and combinations of non-toxic products that are healing people. That’s right healing.
You can not use the word healing when talking about drugs. They do not heal anything. They are band-aids that mask the underlying cause of pain and illness.
One of the products healed my wife Ginger. She was dying from colitis.
Doctors and specialists told us that she would have it for the rest of her life and there was nothing they could do except give her toxic steroids.
Thanks to one of the doctors I became friends with we were given an all natural non-toxic product. She has not had one flareup or any symptoms of colitis again.
For many thousands of years, there have been these healing substances in use by many cultures around the world.
Plants such as Aloe Vera, Green Tea, and herbal drinks, have been important for centuries. In Biblical Times many balms and potions used honey, Apple Cider vinegar, cinnamon, cumin, Frankincense, Myrrh and a very long list of substances that stood the test of time.
We are talking many thousands of years of trial and error.
The collusion between Big Pharma and the insurance industry have caused these great healing substances to fade into nonuse in favor of toxic drugs which generate the billions of dollars that are so important to their stockholders. It is just too profitable to have a sick population gobble their poison. And yes many of their concoctions contain actual poison substances.
Today with the latest techniques in harvesting, bottling, and storage these age-old substances are coming back highly improved and changing people lives.
Every day I will add some more to this important subject. The information will improve your health which always improves your happiness and can extend the number of years you hope to live.
Any of you that want more information sooner please email me and tell me what ailments physical or mental you or your friends and family are dealing with. I will then research what is happening in the world of Nutriceuticals and All Natural Healing and what is working today? You will be surprised at how powerful these testimonials are.

Anti-Malarial drug linked to Brain Damage

Army units ordered to stop taking anti-malarial drug linked to Brain Damage

The top doctor for Green Berets and other elite Army commandos has told troops to immediately stop taking mefloquine, an anti-malaria drug found to cause permanent brain damage in rare cases.

The ban among special operations forces is the latest development in a long-running controversy over mefloquine. The drug was developed by the Army in the 1970s and has been taken by millions of travelers and people in the military over the years. As alternatives were developed, it fell out of favor as the front-line defense against malaria, a mosquito-borne disease that international health officials say kills roughly 600,000 people a year.

The new prohibition among special operations forces follows a July 29 safety announcement by the Food and Drug Administration that it had strengthened warnings about neurologic side effects associated with the drug. The FDA added a boxed warning to the drug label, the most serious kind of warning, saying neurologic side effects like dizziness, loss of balance and ringing in the ears may become permanent.

The drug’s other side effects include anxiety, depression and hallucinations — conditions that some military families over the years believe prompted psychotic behavior in their loved ones, including killings and suicides.

Quoting the FDA’s July safety warning, the Surgeon General’s Office of the Army Special Operations Command sent a message to commanders and medical personnel last Friday ordering a halt in prescribing mefloquine for malaria prevention for the approximately 25,000 Green Berets, Rangers, Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations soldiers, command spokesman Lt. Col. Dave Connolly said.

The message also told commanders and medical workers to assess the possibility that some of their troops have been sickened by the drug but may mistakenly have been thought to be malingering or to have post-traumatic stress disorder or other psychological problems. That’s because symptoms of toxic levels of mefloquine in the brain may mimic or be mistaken for other disorders. The message said questions about suspected cases of mefloquine toxicity should be submitted though the War Related Illness and Injury Center of the Veterans Affairs Department, which has been studying the issue.

“What this is is a wake-up call telling troops, `Look, you’ve been misinformed,”‘ said Remington Nevin, a former Army physician and epidemiologist who studies the psychiatric effects of anti-malarial toxicity at the Department of Mental Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Nevin is a critic of military policy on mefloquine, which he says the Pentagon should have stopped using years ago, particularly because it confounds diagnosis of PTSD and traumatic brain injury, two signature health issues of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Others point out that the drug has been effective in preventing malaria and many people have preferred it because it is less expensive and has to be taken less often than alternatives.

“I take mefloquine when I travel,” said Dr. David Sullivan of the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute. “For 80 percent, 90 percent of the people, they have no trouble with it.”

Mefloquine is still prescribed to the traveling public and to volunteers in the Peace Corps, which also has reduced its use.

The new prohibition among commando units goes beyond guidance from top Defense Department health officials, who say mefloquine use by the different branches of the military has been dramatically reduced in recent years but is still given to troops who can’t use alternatives.

The drug was given to 2,417 uniformed and civilian defense personnel and family members in the first seven months of this year, compared with more than 20,000 in all of 2009.

The Pentagon says it doesn’t have data on the number troops who may have suffered ill effects from the drug. But two days after the FDA announcement, the department began a review “of potential neuropsychological effects on service members who were prescribed mefloquine,” said Lt. Col. Cathy Wilkinson, a defense spokeswoman.

Military Sexual Trauma

Rape goes back to the beginnings of warfare. The Cavemen banded together to fight off Stone-age Armies for their hunting grounds. I am sure there was raping and pillaging going on way back then.
Can you imagine what went on during the Roman Times? Wars were started over it!!!

Roman Rape

The rape of noblewoman Lucretia was a starting point of events that led to the overthrow of the Roman Kingdom and establishment of the Roman Republic. As a direct result of rape, Lucretia committed suicide. Many artists and writers were inspired by the story, including Shakespeare, Botticelli, Rembrandt, Dürer,Artemisia Gentileschi, Geoffrey Chaucer, and Thomas Heywood.

Is rape only a woman’s issue?
Military Sexual Trauma is a much larger issue than anyone realizes. Here is something that really affects me to this day.
A number of years ago I was in a PTSD and Substance Abuse Group at the Sepulveda, VA in Southern California.
The program worked from a friend of mines awesome book “Seeking Safety”. This is a great program. Dr. Lisa Nejavits, a Harvard Professor, wrote the workbook. Ask your local VA if they have this program.
Most of the men in this group were older Vietnam Era veterans. Most had been on the battlefield.
There was a younger Disabled Vet in the group that always seemed lost and out of sorts. Well actually all the vets in the group were out of sorts to some degree.
Everyone in the group had been fighting men that had been in a war zone.
This young man and I became friends and after a period of time he came to me and needed to confide in someone.
He asked what I knew about any other causes of PTSD in the military. After some give and take  we finally got down to the situation. This poor guy had been raped by his Senior male officer while in his early military training.
Talk about being in a Catch 22 situation. He had very little in common with the rest of us. There were next to zero Military Sexual Trauma workshops he could reach out to at the VA. If you could find one it was all women. So my friend was in the really bad position of keeping it all to himself.
As we have talked about in other articles the worst thing that we can do is clam up.

Healing does not occur without breaking the silence barrier. Many of you know just how hard that is with Warzone PTSD issues. It is much more difficult when dealing with any type of Military Sexual Trauma. It is a maddening, embarrassing situation followed by everything from sadness and a desire to hide. We males all have to play the Macho Card much to our detriment. So you can imagine how hard it had been for my friend to come to me.
Being a filmmaker he has gone on to get his story out even more in a short movie.

The most important thing I am trying to get at is the necessity of getting it out in the open in some way as early as possible. It is important to talk with someone.
Now here is the important part. Who is that someone?
Let’s consider Military Sexual Trauma as an androgynous topic. It is horrible for both sexes.
Most of the Military establishment doesn’t want you to talk to anybody!!! Finding someone to talk to is really hard especially while you are still active military.

Note: For legal reasons I can’t tell you what you should or shouldn’t do at the time of the rape. This article is dealing with PTSD Issues after the fact. There are important websites on what to do at the time of the assault. Here are a few:

DoD Website: http://bit.ly/1PvTxHq
Military Rape Site: http://bit.ly/1jEFinf
Military Authority: http://bit.ly/1jrofpc

Support Groups:
Break the Sound Barrier!!! The sooner you can find a support group the better. You need people to talk to. It helps to find a cross section of people that you would find in organized support groups.
People who have just been through the trauma can be helpful because you will find, as I did, that helping others is very rewarding and grounding. This helped me immensely with my own Warzone PTSD.
Mine wasn’t from rape but PTSD across the board has many things in common like Anger Management, Road Rage, Substance Abuse.
Seek out people in the group that have spent years dealing with their own trauma. There are grounding tricks and techniques that really help and these people will know more about them and will be happy to help because it helps them to help you.
If you notice the word help was in there a lot. Don’t stay a victim. Ask for help and be willing to help others. Some of my closest friends were made through our mutual PTSD struggle.
Does it become easier? Not if you hold it in!!! Get busy and do some Googling to find a local group that you feel comfortable with. You may need to go through a few but you will make friends along the way. Hang on to them!

How do you find help in your area:
Be creative with Google Searches. Here are some searches to try. Just swap out your local area in the search term. Then stretch the geographical area to larger towns in your general part of the country until you find someone to talk to that can point you in the right direction. The first three are an example of stretching the search to a set of related locals:

  • San Fernando sexual trauma support group
  • San Fernando Valley sexual trauma support group
  • Los Angeles sexual trauma support group
  • military rape crisis center los angeles
  • military rape support groups dallas
  • military rape support groups boston

The types of Google Searches above are fairly intuitive  and will point you in a good direction.
Here are some websites to find help around the country:
http://centers.rainn.org/
https://rainn.org/get-involved/rape-crisis-center-information
https://rainn.org/get-information/links
http://www.militaryrapecrisiscenter.org/
http://www.ncdsv.org/ncd_linkssexviolence.html

Important: Don’t try to do this alone. You are not at fault. I did not start healing from my PTSD until I reached out and found Kindred Spirits. In my case I did not do this until 30 years after my war trauma. What a waste of a giant chunk of my life!!!
Until I reached out I was in a fog of anger, isolation,  and every type of self medication on the planet. They do not help!!!!!!!!

Stem Cells & Cellular Healing

We as veterans complicate our health and mental issues with PTSD, TBI, depression due to MST (Military Sexual Trauma), even diabetes due to Agent Orange by allowing our bodies to become out of whack through poor diet and bad habits. I have done this for years so I know first hand how this magnifies the problems we have. Through my research, I have found things that have helped me in so many ways. As I learn of the latest breakthroughs I will pass them on to you. This article is about easy ways to put back what we are not getting from our diets and fast-paced lifestyles.

Update Dec. 30 2017
Through recent research, I have found an amazing product that was taken from us 80 years ago.

It is an oil extract from the Hemp Plant called CBD Oil. I will be writing articles about this fantastic oil that heals us at the cellular level. Watch for these articles starting right after New Years 2018. Below in this article, I write about a product that cured my wife of colitis. The CBD Oil is the next step up in amazing Super Foods and what the smart doctors now call Renewal. We lose millions of cells a minute. Learn how to replace them  every minute with Renewed Super Healthy cells.

Stem Cells:
Many people hear the term Stem Cells and they go all “Big Brother and 666 tattooed children” on us.
This is just Dark Age style thinking rearing its ugly head.
A friend of ours, Dr. Chris Morris, has formulated a nutraceutical combo of Super Foods that works at the cellular level to fire up our bodies own Stem Cells. This causes incredible things to happen in our bodies immune system and the term growth factor is something you will hear more and more about.

Growth Factor Technology (GFT) is exactly where all the cutting edge research is going. Our bodies are the finest healing facility ever constructed and designed to heal itself of everything when the Right Stuff is added.

Here is an article by Chris and his company Wellmed Global. It is long so read it at your own pace. It is well worth wading through the whole article several times to find out what is going on in the exciting world of stem cell research and the life-changing products that are now available to us.

In the article below watch for important info such as: Turn off chronic inflammation to prevent chronic degenerative disease.
If you have read any of my articles on inflammation then you know just how much trouble inflammation causes us. It is the nasty culprit in most pain issues.

StemFit Active™ And The Stem Cell

stemFit 1   Our bodies are loaded with stem cells and as we age they lose their ability to regenerate and repair the tissue. The main reason is due to a breakdown in the signaling needed to activate these stem cells. The signaling that is diminished by environmental stressors, aging, and limited number of growth factors available. Therefore, the stem cells stay dormant in spite of their constant signaling for help sent out by your aging and damaged tissue.

The reprogramming of our stem cells and the regeneration of the body is enhanced with embryonic signal molecules found in stemFit Active™. The egg is essentially a stem cell before it is fertilized. Once fertilized, the stem cell releases signal molecules critical to the development of life. It’s the production of the stem cell released molecules that don’t require downstream solubilization, refolding, or other processes the body would need to synthesize for a similar response.

The correct control signals initiate the multiplication of reserve stem cells in the corresponding tissues.

All the ingredients introduced by stemFit Active™ work on multiple pathways simultaneously to re-activate the compromised communication affecting the system and organ functions of the body.

The short chains of amino acids found in stemFit Active™ are able to cross the digestive barrier without breaking down requiring only small amounts to produce a profound effect.9

As another example of stemFit Active’s™ therapeutic effect, the marine plant mineral complex is a natural occurring mixture of bone-building nutrients, containing calcium, magnesium and several other proven bone-supporting ingredients, such as boron, silicon, and strontium. A five-year study conducted by the Centre for Bone and Arthritis Research at the Sahlgrenska Academy’s

Institute of Medicine of University of Gothenburg in Sweden has clearly demonstrated that when it comes to protecting an athlete’s bones, some sports have an edge over others. And which are the superior sports? Turns out that load-bearing sports such as basketball, volleyball, jogging, and soccer come out with flying colors in reducing an athlete’s risk of developing osteoporosis later in life as long as bioavailable nutrient is available to initiate repair10.

From one individual cell to another, the healthy expression and right nutrients are needed to restore cellular damage and assure good health for the individual. The ingredients in stemFit Active™ are supportive and in alignment with how the body heals and repairs itself during its youth. Our body recognizes the living

ingredients as a dynamic synergy of information for conducting cellular defense, repair, growth, healing, and homeostasis.

StemFit Active™ Science -The Central Nervous System

stemFit2

The Central Nervous System (CNS) plays a major role in the control and regulation of most bodily functions, including awareness, movements, sensations, thoughts, speech, and memory. For the athlete it means coordination, reflexes and responsiveness. The CNS is at the top of the chain that directs and interfaces with all the other systems of the body. In 1962, it was discovered that neuro-stem cells reside in certain parts of the brain, where there is some form of malfunction or

trauma2. It was shown that Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGFs) and other signal molecules feed and nurture these neuro-stem cells to help the repair of these malfunctioning cells and any damaged tissue 3.

Research has also revealed clearly that cell cultures show a dramatic increase in peptide and amino acid uptake in the presence of these signal molecules4. This result gives credence to the understanding that CNS development is influenced by a very precise mechanism, which requires a unique set of signal molecules available from embryonic extracts and other sources of neuropeptides. These proteins direct the internal machinery within brain cells and the connective tissue between brain cells. They also can control the chemical reactions that allow brain cells to develop and communicate with each other.

A compelling argument was made for the use of FGFs, when the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine chose them as a treatment for degenerative neural diseases from a study they conducted in 2005. They used FGFs as a neurogenesis factor, and found that there was a fivefold increase and proliferation of neural stem cells5. Other studies have confirmed the use of FGFs for the neurogenesis of the Central Nervous System.

Neural stem cells (NSCs) are self-renewing, multipotent cells that

generate the main phenotype of the nervous system. Stem cells are characterized by their capability to differentiate into multiple cell types via exogenous stimuli from their environment, specifically FGFs. They undergo asymmetric cell division into two daughter cells, one non-specialized and one specialized. NSCs primarily

differentiate into neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytesr1. Oligodendrocytes support the Myelin Sheath, implicated in Athletic Stress Related CNS breakdown.

This is why our scientists discovered that stemFit Active™ has such a positive influence on an athlete’s ability to stay focused, maintain concentration, coordination, and mental clarity by facilitating repair and function of damaged neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes.

StemFit Active™ Science – The Endocrine System

stemfit 6

From an endocrine perspective, we can determine the response to stress and stressful events by measuring an overproduction of stress hormones like: cortisol, aldosterone, and epinephrine. Psychological and physical stress tests have shown how our body responds to stressful events by an excessive release of these hormones, not to mention the cardiovascular response of an increase in heart rate and blood pressure. One of the mechanisms identified with the embryonic peptides contained in stemFit Active™ works by the elevation of 17-ketosteroid levels, which improves anabolism (buildup) through

increased synthesis of hormones like DHEA and testosterone and a decrease in cortisol (a catabolic breakdown hormone)6. stemFit Active™ is capable of lowering the body’s production of cortisol, by mediating the body’s response to stress.

Medical science has learned that prolonged cortisol secretion results in significant physiological changes such as:

  • Cortisol-induced collagen loss in the skin is ten times greater than in any other tissue. Cortisol breaks down the glue (collagen) that is holding our cells together. Stress and the excess cortisol that it produces are literally making us come unglued!
    Insulin resistance contributing to hyperglycemia, more commonly known as diabetes. The ingredients of stemFit Active™ balance the synthesis and release of insulin helping to regulate blood sugar.
  • Reduces bone formation, favoring the long-term development of osteoporosis by reducing calcium absorption in the intestines.
  • Damages cells in the hippocampus; this damage results in impaired learning and has been shown to inhibit memory retrieval of already stored information.
  • Suppression of the immune system increases susceptibility to infection (short term) and cancer (long term).
  • Accelerates weight gain, mood disorders (including depression), anxiety, insomnia and even fertility issues.

StemFit Active™ Science – The Immune System

stenFit3

Our Immune System, amongst many

other things is responsible for our defense from foreign invaders and is the vehicle

for wound healing and tissue repair. For the athlete it is about recovery from athletic trauma. For most of us, it’s the ability to fight off diseases like cold, influenza and a myriad of other conditions unique to our time.

The ingredients in stemFit Active™ help to initiate the following immune responses and more:8

  • Increase the number and activity of monocytes and macrophages, which have the ability to attract stem cells, which are particularly important in conditions characterized by persistent tissue wasting diseases, including skeletal muscle and myocardium.
  • Strengthen a sluggish system, enhancing the release of TNFa and cytokines. The ability to retard cell division critical to the prevention of cancer.
  • Anti-inflammatory properties to include but not limited to blocking the generation of histamine and bradykinin, and inhibit inflammatory eicosanoids.
  • Anti-microbial properties induced by the stimulation of macrophages to produce nitric oxide and cytokines to kill and degrade intracellular micro-oganisms. The ability to inhibit bacterial growth and viral replication (HIV and HSV-1) by the inhibition of the proper glycosylation of viral proteins and an increase in the production and function of cytotoxic T cells.
  • And function as an effective intracellular antioxidant and free radical scavenger.

StemFit Active™ Science – The Gene Expression

stemFit4

The nucleus contains the bulk of our DNA and is responsible for orchestrating cellular structure and function to enhance who we are by expressing the roadmap for healing and repair. It provides the blueprints for the protein sequencing and gene expression. The process is known as transcription of the genetic expression for the synthesis of proteins.

The epigenetic influence and signaling peptides found in stemFit Active’s™ embryonic extract can be utilized to deliver powerful signaling to turn on healthy genes and turn off damaging ones to experience results like:

  • Turn off chronic inflammation to prevent chronic degenerative disease.
  • Turn on melatonin production and restful sleep.
  • Turn on serotonin production to feel good.
  • Turn off the stress response before it damages our healthy cells

Really Mad at Monsanto Article Agent Orange/GMO’s

Can Any Vet Say Agent Orange?
Monsanto is at it again!!!
monsanto pig

The way it is going we had all better learn to speak “OINKish”!!!

Be Forewarned! This article has a lot of anger in it. Many of my friends are either now sick or are dead from Agent Orange due to these monsters. Why do I call them monsters? It is because many people there know full well what they are causing and they do it anyway for the sake of their Stockholders and the Almighty Dollar. As you will read below It makes total cents. Lots of them. In their case it is pennies from heaven. They spray dioxin from the sky.
If you want to be blown away read this: http://bit.ly/1OoAsXg
Hopefully you have read some of my articles on this Blog Site pertaining to just how anemic our American Diet is and why it is so important to find Super-foods to augment our chances to lead a long healthy life.

Well Monsanto is still at it. And it is getting worse!!! This time it is GMO’s!!! Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) are ruining our food chain. Do some research as I do. Just a few Google Searches. Try this search: “gmo’s and bees”  It should make you cry!
Dead bees

What is killing our bee’s???
Better Question:
Who is killing our bee’s?

First Things First:
First let’s talk about what crimes against man, animals, insects, and birds they have already committed!
As veterans we all know the horrors of what Monsanto helped create and distribute around the world. Yes I am talking about Agent Orange.
Our government helped them hide just how disastrous AO has been to the future of our planet. After all they didn’t do anything wrong. They were simply protecting our soldiers by spraying this poison only and exclusively on our enemies in a far off land, RIGHT? Wrong!!!
They must have had some super duper sprayers available. None of our side was supposed to get any on them!
How about the poor bastards that worked in the labs and facilities that made this crap.

Read anything from Monsanto’s website if you want a laugh! It would be funny as they sound just like Steve Urkel; “Did I do That???????” It would be comical if it wasn’t so horrible! I am not just talking about the babies being born today in Vietnam with horrible birth defects. Well they are Vietnamese so I guess they must be enemies as well.

It wasn’t just sprayed on our enemies but our GI’s got soaked with it as well.

How about the thousands of Air Force and navy personnel that didn’t even set foot in Vietnam but came into contact with AO through transporting it there. Guys and gals such as our GI’s working in ports like Okinawa are also not receiving any help because after all they did not have Boots Down in Nam. Many of our Navy Veterans just love being called Blue Water Vets. That is another of the Catch 22 ripoffs that our vets are subjected to.It means they supposedly not come ashore.

Here is the last paragraph in an article from VA.Gov. The article relates to the VA not giving benefits if they did not roll around in the contaminated jungle:

Exception: Blue Water Veterans with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma may be granted service-connection without showing inland waterway service or that they set foot in Vietnam. This is because VA also recognizes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as related to service in Vietnam or the waters offshore of Vietnam during the Vietnam Era. –
See more at: http://1.usa.gov/1NBcWHb
Wow! Read the whole article. So in other words if you have Diabetes, Peripheral Neuropathy, Lung disease, etc., you could not have come into contact with AO. However if you happen to have non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma somehow AO sought you out but not the other guys. Now that makes cents. (Not a misspelling) Must be those super smart sprayers again. That is like some of the bullets in SfiFy movies. The spray curves around. “No not that guy, OK That one over there, Spray Him!!!”

Watch Out! Here come The GMO’s!!!

If you have a strong stomach & a BS meter go to Monsanto’s website and have fun. I read it as I would the Sunday Funnies!

neonic_killers

Of course as these photos show this is not funny at all!!!

GMO Basic Definition:
A genetically modified organism (GMO), also known as a transgenic organism, is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.GMOs are the source of genetically modified foods and are also widely used in scientific research and to produce goods other than food.

Here is some info from Food & Water Watch:
This paragraph below is really upsetting to me as we eat salmon at least twice per week at home.

Genetic engineering modifies the DNA of crops to display specific traits, such as a resistance to pesticides and herbicides. Genetically engineered (GE) crops are often also referred to as genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or biotech crops. In recent years, the Food and Drug Administration began paving the way for approval of GM animals, such as salmon. The first genetically modified animal approved for human consumption, supporters of GM salmon claim it grows at twice the normal rate. The approval of GM salmon could open the floodgates for GM cows and pigs, which biotech companies are waiting in the wings to finally commercialize after years of research and development.
Well on the surface this doesn’t sound so bad. Does IT? OK let’s dig in:


From Institute for Responsible Technology
10 Reasons to Avoid GMO’s

Note: This is good but long so here is a little with a link to whole article:

Article contains Topics such as:

  1. GMOs are unhealthy.
  2. GMOs contaminate―forever.
  3. GMOs increase herbicide use.
  4. Genetic engineering creates dangerous side effects.
  5. Government oversight is dangerously lax.
  6. The biotech industry uses “tobacco science” to claim product safety.
  7. Independent research and reporting is attacked and suppressed.
  8. GMOs harm the environment.
  9. GMOs do not increase yields, and work against feeding a hungry world.
  10. By avoiding GMOs, you contribute to the coming tipping point of consumer  rejection, forcing them out of our food supply.

Just reading the topics above should be enough. Here is full article: http://bit.ly/1doO5mZ

Just what is wrong with Monsanto?
Why does the name AntiChrist keeping popping into my mind?

MAM-220

Go to this Link and help!!! 

How can one company be at the root of so many horrible things. Here’s just two of them. My God.
Just mentioning these two names in any group of people and you will get a heated conversation boiling over the top:

Agent Orange!
Genetically Modified Organisms!!!!!!!

These things are destroying our planet one species at a time. Actually they destroy dozens and more at a time.
What the hell else does Monsanto have up their sleeves.

Here is the short list of what just these two are attacking.

  • Humans are being destroyed one organ at a time: Diabetes, Peripheral Neuropathy, Lung Disease, Several types of Cancers and more
  • Next Generation: Birth Defects for years
  • Our Food Chain
  • Bee’s: What is going to pollinate our planet
  • Birds
  • Our water supply
  • All Living Things

There is more but I think that is enough

What can we do? Here is a start: http://bit.ly/1GVoz6t

This is exactly why Ginger and I are working with World Renowned Doctors to find all natural Superfoods  to give us a chance. Let’s talk about it: DonP@PTSDHotline.com

Read my other articles. We can protect ourselves. It is now more important than ever to supplement our food chain with with Superfoods. Contact me for more info on them at the email addy above

We All Need to Help with this

If this is an Emergency Please dial:

People ask me all the time; “How do I get info to help my Veteran friend or family member?”
It is really important that you take a little time to learn what our Veterans may be going through. You don’t need much to really help them. Just read a small book or two.
Back when our Vietnam Vets came home there wasn’t any info available.
Even now most info out there is written for doctors and psychiatrists and is not easy to understand by the average person.

Over the years I had to dig in and do a ton of research. I had to write my own book!
cover Warzone PTSD

“The Warzone PTSD Survivors Guide”
(2nd Edition)
by ME:-)
I wrote it with all of us in mind. Like I said most of the stuff out there is written by people that were not in a warzone. Actually they hadn’t even been in the Military at all!!!
As a 100% disabled Vietnam Vet, with Multiple Purple Hearts, I have:

“I’ve Been There/Done That”!!!

If you come to one of my book signings I tend to give a lot of copies away! Vets Helping Vets!

The book contains important info, learned the hard way, by myself and my family. The learning developed over a 45 year struggle with my own personal demons:

  • PTSD
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (Yes I have that as well)
  • Anger Management
  • Road Rage
  • Substance Abuse (Drug & Alcohol)
  • Navigating the Veterans Administration
  • Struggling to get my VA Benefits

I have learned from my association & interaction with thousands of other vets over the years.
We helped each other with:

  • Diabetes & Peripheral Neuropathy from Agent Orange
  • Military Sexual Trauma: both Male & Female
  • Family PTSD: This is when both husband & wife were in a war zone. This can get complicated.
  • Prior PTSD: Childhood Sexual Trauma, Car Crash Trauma, etc. Add this to additional Warzone PTSD and it layers up.
    (There are many combinations that can cause this condition called “Complex PTSD”)

Further Study: I learned from my 45 year marriage to Ginger (married on my R&R Leave from Vietnam). At times she was my nurse and helper. The marriage had many ups and downs as most do.
However these ups & downs were massively exacerbated by what War & PTSD threw into the mix. She developed
“PTSD by Contact”.
We were the research Guinea Pigs for the writing of this book and our future work with veterans! We are best friends and have been through a lot together!

Humor is an important RX for trauma: I didn’t want to write a heavy tome and did many rewrites to make the reading fun and easy.

Nutrition and healing with All Natural Super Foods: Why are there more editions of my book? I continue to learn many new things. I am studying Cutting Edge ways to get us off all the drugs the VA likes to load us up with. This Blog Site that you are on has a number of important articles I wrote on healing without drugs. You will find great info in them  from my friends and associates such as:

  • Dr Chris Morris – World Renowned Naturopathic doctor
  • Dr Barry Sears – Author of The Zone Diet (Omega 3 Fish Oil Proponent)
  • Dr Michael Lewis (Pentagon): Col (ret) West Point Grad & Author (Omega 3 Protocol)

I will be adding these informative Health Articles to my 3rd Edition sometime early in 2016 but you can get all the info here on this blog. Check back as I am constantly adding articles on many topics important to our vets.
