Treatment for PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injuries With Amazing Results
By Doug Warden Army TWS Member
I recently took my 15 year old grandson, who is autistic, to the Brain Treatment Center in Newport Beach, California. After 5 treatments, he is dressing himself for school and putting his pajamas on for bed. He has never been able to do this before. He is going back for further treatment in early March. While I was there, they found out I was a combat veteran of the Vietnam War and asked if I wanted to receive treatment. I have had sleep problems for over 30 years and my ears have had tinnitus from the Battle of Tet in 1968 when the battleship New Jersey fired 16 inch rounds up within 50 meters of my squad. After one treatment, the tinnitus in my right ear disappeared. I have been sleeping between 7 and 9 hours a night, for the first time in many years. I have had a total of nine treatments, along two Electroencephalography (EEG) which measured voltage fluctuations resulting from ionic current flows within the neurons of my brain.
Please understand, I am not employed by the BTC nor do I have a financial interest in the company. I’m just so blown away by the technology that I’ve seen, that I am compelled to spread the word.
This is not a new technology. Using an innovation called quantative EEG and topographical brain imagery developed by Dr. Yi Jin’s 35 years of research, they pursue therapy without drugs, talk therapy or behavioral coping mechanisms. They address directly the underlying causative neurology dysfunctions that results in PTSD using MRT (magnetic resonance therapy). Veterans experience significant improvement within weeks of starting treatment – their outlook changes, hope, vitality and energy return. They not only feel better, but many return to employment and become re-engaged with their families and communities.
Here is a snapshot of the results out of the 36 PTSD / TBI veterans in their initial study:
1. All 36 had anger issues and rage problems while driving prior to treatment. None do after 2 weeks of MRT treatment (most after 1st week).
2. Seventeen carried weapons (knives, hand guns, Tasers, etc.). None do after 2 weeks of MRT treatment.
3. Twenty-nine started with tinnitus (ringing of the ear), only 1 still has tinnitus.
4. Twenty-two started with severe alcohol and/or substance abuse. None have issues with alcohol or substance abuse after 2 weeks of MRT treatment.
Jon Warren is one of the 36 PTSD veterans in the study. Los Angeles Times did an extensive write up about his experience in a story entitled “Healing Sgt. Warren” which details a hellish day in Iraq as he watched his friend burn and his many months of anxiety, dread and guilt that followed him home from war.
BTC now has over 110 PTSD and TBI veterans that have gone through the MRT program with 100% success in reducing the majority of their symptoms. They now employ seven of the Veterans they have treated with MRT and those veterans now treat other veterans. They have also helped over 160 family members of veterans, all free of charge.
At this time they are conducting a Double Blind PTSD study (MRT-002) in Del Mar, CA and are accepting veterans that meet the inclusion criteria for the study. Some more good news is that BTC does not charge veterans any money for the treatments. They vow to keep it that way, no matter how many veterans they treat. Their business plan is to partner with the VA to become an outsourced resource for treating PTSD.
I am also helping to coordinate putting a treatment center at Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
