I haven't written as much in the recent past, because I've been so busy lately, taking care of my own health as well as working with very sick people, helping them heal.
My new room mate is a war veteran. He has a therapy dog, a German shepherd, because he’s only somewhat functional. This poor guy has been shot 20+ times, stabbed 10+ times, dismembered once, has had multiple concussions, and survived cancer. If that wasn’t enough, his entire family, wife, daughter, and mother in law, were killed in a car accident. His dog is pretty much the only person in his life.
When he moved in, he told me that he may lose his dog, because she’s in desperate need of socialization. She is afraid of everything. She barks at joggers, bicyclists, etc. And like her owner she exhibits signs of PTSD. She probably absorbed it from him as part of her service, and because animals tend to take on the traits and illnesses of their owners. And in part its because their previous living situation was traumatic for both of them.
I have a heart for veterans, and I didn’t want him to lose the only being in the world he loves, so I agreed to participate in socializing her. When I would go jogging in the mornings, I’d take her with me. So she could get used to joggers and have a chance to run outside, which she doesn’t really get to do much otherwise. I workout every day, and once she saw me shadow boxing, and she got really scared and was barking like crazy. But because I take her out as often as I can, now she loves me. She stands up and puts her paws right on my heart, and smiles at me and gives me the puppy eyes. Who can resist that? Then I have to take her jogging :)
I used to have a dog when I was a child, but it was poisoned by some neighbors who were angry at my mother for something she said. Our dog became paralyzed and died a slow painful death, peeing blood for months, until my mother couldn’t take seeing our beloved dog suffering so much, and put her to sleep. After that, my mother said she will never have another dog. And we never did.
I travel quite a bit, so having a pet isn’t realistic. So I had forgotten how nice it is to have a dog, and how therapeutic they are to have around. After some weeks of walking my room mate’s dog, it became pretty obvious to me that she is more therapy for me, than I am for her. Although its probably mutual. Who would’ve thought that cleaning up doggy poopoo could be so therapeutic! Lol. In any case, she is a very fun dog, extremely strong, but totally non violent, despite German shepherds having the reputation for being aggressive.
I’ve also been working with a wonderful healing technology lately - LED Infrared Light Therapy. Users have reported improvements in these areas - TBIs (Traumatic Brain Injuries), concussions, PTSD, pain, depression, autism, dementia, Alzheimers, problems with memory, concentration, stroke, autism, and other symptoms.
The LED therapy increases blood flow in the brain, or whatever part of the body the lights are applied to.
The US Gov actually approved this technology for war veterans. And this technology has been used by NASA to help astronauts grow their food and heal in space. Because people can't take medications in space and people don't heal in space like they do on Earth. But with LED healing technology, people are healing.
There is some really important information below about how to heal from TBIs; why TBIs, concussions and PTSD often go unrecognized and untreated; and what this healing tech can do to help.
This technology actually repairs DNA, and regrows tissue, because its anti-aging.

Dr Thomas Burke Q & A on Near Infrared Light Therapy, Blood Flow in Diabetes and TBIs
I've been treating a lot of people with this technology and they all have shown improvement. A guy who was barely walking because he had multiple surgeries on his spine, recovered fine motor skills. I saw drawings he did, and they were very good. He was able to draw totally controlled straight lines, without his hands shaking, which is what he started out with.
Another guy who lost the use of his left arm due to a car accident, did just several treatments with the lights, and was able to use both of his hands to put on his shoes. He didn't even realize he was doing it at first, because it came naturally!
Typical symptoms of TBI include, but are not limited to:
Noise and Light sensitivity
Major changes in personality
Major changes in temperament (anger, rage, agitation, emotional outbursts, violence)
Pain / Chronic pain
There is a silent epidemic of TBIs, and often they get misdiagnosed as behavioral issues, or mental illness, or other various illnesses; and as a result they don't get treated properly. Edgar Cayce mentioned in this writings that children often have accidents, falls, and then get up and keep playing or running, and the parents never realize they have a concussion or injury that will permanently affecting them, if left untreated. Or children (or adults) have illnesses, that injure the brain, and when the person recovers, they still have a TBI. Not to mention sports and car accident related TBIs, that never get proper treatment.
All that affects us. I had severe symptoms of PTSD/CPTSD as a child and as a youth and no one ever identified it or treated it. I had a car accident and a concussion at 12 years old, and though I physically recovered, I wasn't the same after that, and no one ever treated me in any way for the concussion and the ensuing symptoms. Millions of other people go through that. I recall crying often in school because I couldn't stand the noise. Between the screaming kids, the bell and the buzzing lights, the noise was physically hurting my head and my ears. It was literally torture. I had chronic pain that some docs thought was fibromyalgia, but intuitively I knew that that was wrong. I just knew. But I didn't know what the cause was. The cause was TBI, concussion, and PTSD. People were baffled; they just didn't get my symptoms at all. When you have PTSD, you are misunderstood constantly. Especially if you are intelligent and normal in other ways.
I've been on the healing path for a very long time. I've done the shamanic journeying for my soul, I cleared the traumatic memories from the past, I did talk therapy, I've done dozens of forms of treatments conventional and fringe, and everything in between. I had done so many different kinds of modalities with so many different kinds of docs, healers and practitioners. And got various tests. But I still had some symptoms of PTSD, that no one understood.
I only found this healing tech in 2018, and I've been using it a lot. As well as helping others with it. All I can say is, wow, it works. It really does help.
I wish all veterans would have a chance to use it, and that all insurance plans would pay for it. It should be available in all hospitals. One can dream :)
In the meantime, you can rent one for a week or several weeks, and treat yourself. If you are interested, please contact me. I would love to share this tech with you. If you are in the US, I can mail it to you, so you can try it out for yourself.
Wishing you all many blessings on your healing journeys!
