A Holistic Approach to Preventing Veteran Suicide
AUTHOR: Krystle Shapiro, MSHN, LMT
BOOK TITLE: The War Within, A Holistic Approach to Preventing Veteran Suicide
Krystle Shapiro, MSHN, LMT, presents a holistic five-part nutrition and wellness program for helping soldiers and veterans who experienced chronic stress and have been exposed to toxic elements during deployment in her new psychology book, “The War Within: A Holistic Approach to Preventing Veteran Suicide” (published by LifeRich Publishing).
Shapiro focuses on what happens to the human body and brain when toxic exposures diminish overall function creating the potential for serious illnesses and debilitating symptoms. The author believes understanding steps to overcoming ill-health can encourage soldiers and veterans to begin an effective healing process. Shapiro explains what each nutrient does to nourish, detox, and support all physical body and brain functions, and provides an easy-to-follow guideline for menu planning to optimally provide the essential nutrients for cell, tissue, organ, and muscle function.
“‘The War Within’ A Holistic Approach to Preventing Veteran Suicide provides another way of addressing what happens in theaters of war and what an individual can do, whether the soldier/veteran, family member, or concerned community,” Shapiro says. “With reported 20 soldiers and veterans committing suicide every day, it is paramount to inform them that my health recovery plan is available and can easily be incorporated along with any mental health program they undertake.”
The key to overcoming the rising rate of suicide in returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan must focus on replenishing critical and essential nutrients lost due to extreme and chronic toxic exposures in theaters of war that have a resounding effect on their health.
