Andrew's comeback story touched my heart. I finally understood that my grandfather, a World War II and Korean War veteran, may have suffered similar brain injured symptoms that Andrew had described but never received the treatment that is now available through pioneers like Dr. Gordon. My grandfather wasn't the easiest person to be around growing up due to his temper but had he had access to a proven solution for the brain to heal, he may have felt more like himself, been more kind and less intimidating to be around.
Who do you know that may have had their light dimmed due to physical and emotional trauma to the head and/or body?
I thought about all millions of people who had acute and chronic head/body traumas, not only the wounded warriors like Andrew, but those from full-contact sports, car accidents, physical abuse, being a curious child, traumatic birth, a combination of these and etc. I thought about my own life and the numerous times I've hit or been hit in the head. Maybe that's why I had issues with depression, anxiety, anger and thoughts of suicide throughout my life?
So, I reached out to Andrew who referred me to Dr. Gordon to have my levels checked out, like what is referenced in Tales From The Blast Factory. Turns out, I was deficient in a few key hormones and nutrients. Armed with objective measurements, Dr. G put me through an individualized nutraceutical protocol. Within a couple of days, I felt my brain turn back on! I felt like me again!! Besides a host of physiological and psychological benefits I received from Dr. G's protocol, I finally felt like that internal parking brake toward life was finally let go. Although stress still exists, my brain and body can now adapt and thrive in life because it's FULL, instead of "running on empty."
Certainly read this book if you or someone you know is suffering mentally and/or physically. There are over 20 plus veteran suicides happening in the US each day?!! This doesn't include the civilian population that is suffering as well!! The solution to healing and optimizing the brain is finally available. TALES FROM THE BLAST FACTORY is true real-world example that actually works and is saving lives.
