    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Most don't improve from a Congestive Heart Failure Diagnosis. In fact I have never heard of that happening.

Well, all I can say about this is they are "worried about him improving???!!!".... I'm 100% but would love to go back to 0% in exchange for a normal life.... As far as Congestive heart failure, Im no expert, but I'd work with a Naturopath doctor to get off any drugs and help get back to normal... BTW, I am a student in Holistic nutrition and herbs, so Im coming from the "other side"... This is my experience... I HAD pretty severe angina (chest pain) after getting back from Iraq... After reading "Your body's many cries for water" by DR. Batmanghelidj, I started drinking enough water every day and eliminated my angina... It also helped with my blood pressure... Thats probably the best book I have ever read... you can find it here:


As far as helping the heart, Cayenne pepper, the active ingredient in tobasco, is an excellent superfood for the heart and circulatory system... Plus, it helps with all kinds of other health problems... I buy a weeks supply for about $2 at my local Fred Meyer in the bulk section...




And for clotting cuts, it works excellent... I cut my finger pretty bad a couple of times in the last year, I just dumped cayenne pepper on it, and the bleeding clotted within a minute... slapped a bandaid on, and it was all good... It started burning a few hours later, I just washed out the cayenne with cold water, put on another bandaid, and 2 days later the cut was gone...

Those that check out the links will discover the following quote, and those that havent will want to...

"In 35 years of practice, and working with the people and teaching, I have never on house calls lost one heart attack patient and the reason is, whenever I go in--if they are still breathing--I pour down them a cup of cayenne tea (a teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of hot water, and within minutes they are up and around)." Dr. Christopher
