******* Action Alerts For This Campaign ********
stop Ask the White House to Fully Support HBOT!
Dr. Paul G. Harch, a pioneer of HBOT, will participate in the White House’s Joining Forces Initiative. The program will teach medical schools better ways to train new doctors to care for veterans’ needs, including HBOT as the premier therapy for traumatic brain injury, post-concussion syndrome, and PTSD.
However, the Joining Forces Initiative has not officially committed to actually funding any of these research projects. Please write to President Obama, thank him for the First Lady’s initiative, and ask him to provide funding so HBOT can actually be administered to our veterans.

August 5, 2008
Report from the Trenches: Government Affairs from your Nation’s Capitol
Dr. William A. Duncan, Your Lobbyist in Washington
The DoD-Brain Injury Rescue & Rehabilitation Project
Since January of 2007, the American Association for Health Freedom has sponsored a project to have veterans of the war treated with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Thank you to the thousands of you who have sent letters of support to your elected officials. Many of our physician members use hyperbaric oxygen for everything from preventing diabetic foot amputations to stroke, autism or traumatic brain treatment. There is a great deal of published material to demonstrate that this treatment is effective. Many have seen it rebuild a brain in 120 days, and every service member who has been treated to date has had significant recovery. Our very own AAHF Board member, Paul Harch, M.D. has treated many of these veterans.
