Gulf War syndrome (GWS) or Gulf War illness (GWI)
It is officially stated that this syndrome/illness affects veterans and civilians who were near conflicts during or downwind of a chemical weapons depot demolition, after the 1991 Gulf War. A wide range of acute and chronic symptoms have included fatigue, musculoskeletal pain, cognitive problems, skin rashes and diarrhea. It has been reported that approximately 250,000of the 697,000 veterans who served in the 1991 Gulf War are afflicted with enduring chronic multi-symptom illness, a condition with serious consequences, but many argue with the official story.
The symptoms have not been isolated to one particular cause, therefore there are veterans who have symptoms who were not downwind from the chemical weapons depot or may have not even been deployed to the area of operations, but they did receive the vaccinations, take bromide tablets and received other inoculations. Investigations continue to this day trying to isolate a certain cause, probably never to be found.
Exposure to toxic chemicals of some sort is currently believed to be the cause of the illness. Several specific causes have been investigated, including pyridostigmine bromide (PB) nerve gas antidote (NAPP) pills, organophosphate military strength pesticides, chemical weapons, vaccinations, inoculations and depleted uranium. Causes which have been ruled out include post traumatic stress disorder, anthrax vaccinations, and smoke from oil well fires, though these exposures may have led to various illnesses and symptoms in a limited number of Gulf War veterans.
This ruling out of these certain causes creates a major conflict within the community. it is believed by other investigators that exactly these ruled out causes may have contributed to the symptoms a great deal. PTSD has recently to cause physical ailments so that the findings must be revisited.
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, between 175,000 and 210,000 – or about 25 percent – of the living veterans of the 1991 Gulf War are currently afflicted by a debilitating, chronic, multi-symptom, multi-system disease commonly known as Gulf War Illness or Gulf War Syndrome. The Environmental Illness Resource tells us that more than 110,000 cases had been reported by 1999, according to official government sources.
There is no single treatment, since the ailments are wide spread we suggest working on each single ailment by going to the START HERE page but as with all treatments, we always suggest the importance of a colon cleanse and a basic nutritional foundation.
COLON CLEANSING / FLUSHES
The #2 Killer in America is Colon Cancer. Nearly every disease can be traced to a Toxic Colon, that is why we need to start with a flush. Food elimination should only take 18-24 hours yet the average person takes 3-4 days. You can store between 10 – 30 pounds of waste in the colon because of toxic buildup. Breast cancer, Prostate cancer, Diabetes and Heart Disease begin in the colon.
The colon is very difficult to clean since it is the waste disposal unit of our body. The toxins that are not eliminated from your body may cause toxic build up and possibly harbor parasites. The toxins will be stored in the colon and slowly be absorbed by the body. This can poison you and manifest into major health issues. Read more and order by clicking here or here.

NOTHING is a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, make the decision to get healthy now, choose the hard right over the easy wrong…we know you have it in you!
Exercise? 3 time a week is great, hard training even better but not a must should you be greatly suffering from your illness. Going to a gym is not always the answer, if you like to walk, then walk. if running is your thing, then go jog. Do what makes you feel good but do something, even if it is walking to the store down the block rather than driving, lifting small weight or filled water bottles in your bed or lying push-ups, just make sure you get started now. This is more important than we all realize.
All of the products we suggest can be substituted for similar products. The only exception we suggest are the Amazon Herb Company products, due to their one of a kind purity, density and richness. There is simply no better, more powerful herbs available, other than you living directly in the rainforest.
As always, check with your Doctor before starting with any new supplements, search out a PHD who has knowledge of natural medicine.
One day at a time…Steady on,
The Whole Patriot
