Remembrance Day 2014

I find it difficult to attend Remembrance Day ceremonies.  It touches something so deep and primal in me that I weep uncontrollably.

I know where this pain originated.  My parents were both veterans of WWII. War doesn’t only touch the warriors.  In spite of their best efforts, veterans inadvertently bring pain and suffering home as a souvenir, spreading it to their children, who continue to pass it on like some dark plague.  Research shows that the impact of war continues for generations.  The Bible says the sins of the father will be visited on the sons for 5 to 6 generations.  This impact is described in a book called Thank You For Your Service.

Cold, hunger, and neglect characterized the pre verbal experiences of my first year of life in that London, England winter of 1945-46.  For several years, men, either in ‘civies’ or occasionally uniformed, would come in to our house, some marching in straight and tall, remnants of their training still apparent in their gait, some physically crippled, limping on canes or an artificial leg; all, no matter their stature, emotionally limping.

My parents and their fellow airmen were all so permanently psychologically wounded that any genuine enthusiasm for life was gone. For them, at its best, life was avoidance of anything emotionally deep. Such fun as there was, was false, forced.   At its worst, life for my parents was depression, self-isolation and numbness. Sad, poor role models for a young family, but better than those left without parents.

So it was that last Remembrance Day, I opted to watch the occasion in the comfort of my home. Enjoying the heat that only a wood stove can deliver, I stood with clients, at least one of whom was a first responder recovering from PTSD.

We followed the National ceremony, trembling to maintain our composure, as we watched the well-dressed politicians lay wreaths.  I’m sure that some of them felt it and were sincere.  Some of them. We could all, however, feel those for whom this was just another obligation.  In spite of the rhetoric about helping veterans,  just a short time later, Veterans Affairs offices were closed down, requests for help were being ignored and the suicides continued.

The hypocrisy of it all angered me.  These veterans have paid a price too high. And for what?   Yes, I do understand that some conflicts are necessary.  Some, but not all.  Gone are the days when we were naïve enough to believe the spin that we go to war to fight for freedom.   I can’t imagine that there are no other possible alternatives than war.  If we took greed, exploitation and the hidden global agendas out of the equation, would we really have to drop bombs on innocents?

I decided, while standing in front of that wood stove, that I would offer something to Veterans in 2014. In the long, cold winter of 2013-14, I spent time trying to contact various veterans, organizations, politicians and treatment centers, offering my now well-honed protocol for those suffering from PTSD.

You would think, that with so many suffering and so very many senseless suicides, that someone would have listened, someone would have had the compassion and authority to OK a ground breaking methodology to deal with the PTSD, rampant among our returning troops. You would be wrong.

Even when I offered to teach military personnel for free, I could find no one to listen, no one with the clout to endorse it.

I decided to work from the ground level.  With the help of trainee therapists, Eric Staffen and Joel Fecht, I organized a free afternoon of training in dealing with PTSD.  In spite of costly advertising that included radio, newspaper and poster coverage, we had only 5 attendees at the Alliston Legion that sunny July afternoon.   Only 1 was a veteran.  He was not there for a military issue.  We had been told by several people that the military is a closed shop.  We learned the hard way that this is indeed the truth.

Further, the military has a culture that precludes looking for help for psychological issues.  If you are physically impaired, they cut it off, take it out, stitch it up to get you ready for the next fight.  If you name a psychological issue such as PTSD as the problem, you are deemed unfit for service and dismissed, thus jeopardizing your career, benefits and pension.   In such a culture, personnel learn to play by the rules of the organization rather than attend to their own or their family’s psychological needs.  And so the suffering continues, the pain is passed on from generation after generation until an ever increasing number of us are devoid of joy or enthusiasm for life.

On Tuesday, I will watch the ceremony, and observe the two minutes of silence to pay my respects to those who have sacrificed their lives, physically or emotionally.  I will be genuinely grateful for their heroism and sacrifice.   I will watch the hypocrisy as the politicians make the most of the photo op and I will be angry.

The Risks and Triggers of Anger

There is new research to show that outbursts of anger significantly increase your chances of heart attack

and stroke. This danger doesn’t end after you are finished being angry but continues for up to 2 hours

beyond the emotional explosion. Anger puts your health and happiness at risk. It may feel right and

justified but in this case, your feelings are not telling you the truth.

There are many ways to deal with anger. Since substances such as alcohol and recreational drugs can

sometimes bring on such flare-ups, they are best left alone. Even some prescription drugs can cause

significant mood change. Please check with your health care provider if you think this is the case. If you

notice that substances change your mood, best to address your usage.

Other considerations in dealing with anger include diet, exercise, allergies, thinking style and repressed

events.

Dietary factors encompass not only what you do eat, but when. Many people go to work without

eating, work all day and fuel up in the evening. When they arrive home, they are exhausted, hungry

and in a bad mood. It is said you should eat like a king at breakfast, a prince at lunch and a pauper at

dinner. This regime provides energy during the day which is burned off, and since dinner is light, you

gain less weight. While each person is unique and has to find their optimal diet, potatoes, meat, sugars,

chemically laden packaged �?food’, the pesticides and fertilizers on non-organic produce, alcohol and

caffeine, generally speaking, all contribute to creating conditions for anger. That coffee and donut at

breakfast could be ruining your mood for the day. Rice, fruit and vegetables calm us down. An absence

of the right kinds of fats and oils also leads to poor mood control.

Fresh air, exercise and sunshine create calm and health. The scents released by trees unblock neuronal

pathways making us feel relaxed. A hike, ski or snowshoe in the woods releases toxins and calms us.

Sunshine activates vitamins, particularly Vitamin D necessary for optimal health and a good mood.

Sunshine releases endorphins from the pineal gland giving us a general feeling of well-being.

Just as our house has a hydro system which runs all of the electrical functions, our body has a bio

electric system which runs our mood, organs, muscles, and thoughts. When this is running optimally,

we operate well. We are happy, relaxed and calm. When it stops, we become angry, depressed, have

pain etc. Acupuncture, shiatsu and some easily learned simple methods play a major role in balancing

your energy and mood.

Again while each of us is unique and reacts in our own way to the world, generally speaking, artificial

scents in fabric softeners, air fresheners, shampoos and soaps can totally stop a bio energy system. This

would be the equivalent of expecting your home appliances to run while the hydro is off. Creating non-

toxic home environment, free of artificial scent, helps to restore energy balance and calm us.

The way we think, cognition, plays a very important role in controlling mood. There are always other

ways to approach and mentally deal with an issue. Instead of using your mind to make you more angry,

how about using it to calm you down and find other approaches.

Of course, any unresolved, unconscious material could cause anger. It is a very sad state of affairs

that so many people have tragic past events which they have buried. These hidden traumas create

negative reactions which are then expressed to other people and other times. How many of us who

have been hurt as children, when triggered, take out that pain and rage on our spouses or our own

present day families. These events can be accessed, understood and resolved with professional help.

This eliminates the cause of so many misunderstood reactions

Start simple, make one positive change and if you would like more help and clarity in your life, call me
