Powerful Photos Depict Veterans Who Use Art Therapy To Heal

Posted on Updated on

This photo series originally appeared in the February issue of National Geographic magazine.

Veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan often return home with wounds that can’t be seen on the surface: brain injuries resulting from the shockwaves that follow explosions.

Some veterans, including service members at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, have attempted to cope with the challenges they face through art therapy.

Below, take a look at images captured by National Geographic photographer Lynn Johnson of these veterans and their loved ones:

Getting The Right Care Now…

Posted on Updated on

Most veterans out in the daily world are confronted with two very common and pervasive issues.

One, to get supportive and consistent care for their issues in a timely and effective manner.

Secondly, see a difference which enhances the quality of their lives and the lives of those whom they love.

The challenge confronting EVERY VETERAN comes from the “unidirectionality of care” which the VA offers our veterans.  This “pharmacy-based model” unfortunately is not a viable choice anymore….especially in the care currently being given to those afflicted with PTSD.

THE PROOF for the effective resolution of PTSD comes from the value of ACUPUNCTURE.  This time-honored therapy offers researched and published verification, of associated pain related to the  re-occurrence and severity of PTSD.

Please see the following article, related graph and references about the Veterans Choice Card, for expanded information related to what is going on in the field of ACUPUNCTURE for veterans with PTSD.

The Final Week Before Launch!

Posted on Updated on

Today….Monday November 3rd, means one week before V-DAY!!

I hope everyone who is getting involved with the FREE Veteran Acupuncture Stand Down on November 11th, is in the swing of moving towards V-DAY….This will be and EXCITING DAY for not only VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES but also for those who are taking the time and effort to CREATE CHANGE AND OFFER REAL HEALING!!

The importance of this community-based event is the true “kick off” for a PARADIGM CHANGING MOVEMENT TO KILL VETERAN SUICIDE and assist those who have served us.

Not only does this event provide the obvious, it most certainly offers a much deeper and deliberate heart-centered action to “galvanize” all of us within the spirit of LOVE AND THANKSGIVING.

This is truly how we will heal our soldiers, their families and ALL OF US!!!

TODAY I WILL POST A NEW TAB ON THE SITE….THE WALL OF HONOR!!

THE WALL OF HONOR WILL PROVIDE ALL THOSE PARTICIPATING IN THE V.Ac. STAND-DOWN, the opportunity to showcase your local stand-down….report on the number of veterans and family you treated and reveal to the rest of the world the reactions and value you offered to your community!!
