Through this study, Veterans expressed perceived strengths and weaknesses of the program so further development and appropriate services will be provided. Similar studies on the impact of non-profit organizations are encouraged. Vet TRIIP significantly impacts the lives of many through stress and pain reduction, potentially preventing suicide.

“ Living the Wheat Belly and Undoctored lifestyle will not rid our lives of all adversity. But it can make you stronger, more optimistic, and resilient. Here is Lonnie and Carrie’s story: “One year ago today, my life changed in unthinkable ways. I discovered the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox book and read it during my kids’ spring break. I had dabbled in the ‘paleo’ diet world a bit over the last five years with inconsistent success and had some idea about how good I felt when eliminating grains… “But the protocols in this book seemed to go further then just diet, like addr...

Stress caused by uncertainty can be paralyzing. The information we are getting about the coronavirus seems to be changing by the hour — creating unprecedented uncertainty. There is a good reason your nerves are jangle, or you are feeling unsettled or anxious. Uncertainty is perceived as unsafe and potentially painful. Whether the situation is predictably positive or predictably negative, your brain prefers something familiar to something unfamiliar. Under stress, our brains depend on instinct rather than rational thought because the part of the brain responsible for critical thinking is busy dealing with the psycholo...

Older veterans have the highest number of lives lost to suicide, make up majority of the veteran population, and are highly likely to experience conditions (e.g., chronic pain, sleep disorders, musculoskeletal) associated with commonly prescribed medications that are potential markers for suicide risk (hereafter referred to as “high-risk” drug categories), including benzodiazepines, sedative-hypnotics, opioids, antidepressants, antipsychotics, and antiepileptics. The research presented in this session will highlight important patterns in high-risk drug prescribing and use and related outcomes in late life.

In the wake of losing someone to suicide, there is much pain and confusion, to say the least. I want to list these five simple truths right up front for those who may need to hear them right away: It isn’t your fault. Do not be ashamed. Your grief is complicated. Healing is possible. You still have life. 1. It isn’t your fault. Losing someone to suicide can often fill us with very specific emotions: Guilt. Regret. Blame. But it is important to talk back to these feelings. It is important to realize and understand that you simply cannot carry the weight of someone else’s decision. Suicide is a very...

CONCLUSIONS: Pharmaceuticals' abilities to treat medical conditions directly relates to their ability to act upon the endogenous biological systems related to the conditions. Thus, these recent findings are likely a reflection of the central role that the endogenous opioid system has in these mental illnesses. Further studies are necessary to study the involvement of endogenous opioid systems, and specifically KOR, in mediating buprenorphine's beneficial effects and the ability to treat these medical conditions while minimizing risks for misuse and diversion.
