Veterans get free relief through alternative medicine (Video)

 "Nearly 100 veterans have found relief through Healing Warriors Program, a Northern Colorado nonprofit that provides free and reduced-cost alternative medicine treatments."

For David Sykes, 63, that relief is at the prick of a needle. He travels from Greeley to Fort Collins every other week for acupuncture with Healing Warriors acupuncturist Abbye Silverstein.

The U.S. Marine Corps Vietnam veteran has worked with the program since August and found it to be “very beneficial” in dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder, a sciatic nerve injury caused by jumping repeatedly out of choppers and social issues caused by his frustration and pain.

I was in during the Vietnam era and it would have been nice to have this forward looking treatment available then. As the saying goes, better late then never.
