When pharmaceutical and talk therapies fail with those suffering from PTSD, consider the brain’s environment…Detox!
The public has little idea of the depth of suffering our returning warriors and their families endure. We saw a sanitized version of war in the Mid East, but rarely the depressing after-story, even when veterans retain their limbs and appear whole. They have been psychologically traumatized, concussed by explosions, vaccinated and drugged while subsisting on bad food under constant stress.
The internal burden of battlefield chemistry they come home with is totally ignored in the psychiatric view of PTSD. Think of the thick smoke in old war movies and consider its contents. Every type of burnt micronized metal, plastic, paint, petroleum, explosive residue and even depleted uranium is included. We scapegoat smoking, but ignore all the other common sources of metal contamination. Depleted uranium weaponry is kept quiet so the subject of “dirty” bombs and war crimes doesn’t come up. Pity the civilians caught in war zones who have seen huge increases in cancers and horrendous birth defects where deformed babies are simply thrown in the trash. Similar fates await our firemen, industrial workers and anyone with exposure to toxic technologies. All these metals generate powerfully oxidzing ROS that slowly and unnoticeably gnaw at brain cells.
