CMI (chronic multisymptom illness) and military veterans

Burn pits 360

The article/site linked is older, but still informative.

As some of you may remember, my oldest son was deployed to Afghanistan while he was active duty as a Marine.  I have to word this accurately, because once a Marine, always a Marine.  Semper Fidelis

I’m currently searching for a good functional medicine physician, and then I’ll try to persuade my son to once again be examined.  The VA was no help at all.

After much numbingly grim research, I’ve written to some functional medicine physicians that may hold out some hope to treat the impact of the toxins.  If you’re a praying person, please say a prayer that we’re guided to a good doctor.

If you know any helpful information, please consider sharing it here.

      I have seen this, but I appreciate you posting it here. The more information gathered, the better.


      • I very much hope that you can find good care for your son. My interest in this area is professional; I edit a legal publication that includes a chapter on veterans’ benefits. Every time I read about the various health registries, I shudder at the thought of the substances to which many military members are exposed. And it’s very distressing that so many veterans struggle to get decent health care.

    I have recently come under the care of a functional doctor. I can’t recommend it enough. He not only discovered multiple toxins but also inherited disorders that were previously unknown
    I read the book, Total Recovery, last summer by Dr. Gary Kaplan. It offered so much hope to me that I have been commuting 2 1/2 hours for my medical care at Dr. Kaplan’s clinic in McLean, VA.
    If you’d like to contact me personally, please use my email address.
