Senator Bernard Sanders spoke to Congress on his experience speaking with veterans from WWII, Vietnam through Iraq and Afghanistan and the following video offers a very truthful response to those who would continue to place our men and women in harms way least we forget the 500,000 veterans whom have come back from Iraq and Afghanistan with PTSD and TBI….
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 ACCESS , CHOICE and ACCOUNTABILITY ACT (VACCA) OF 2014
