MISSION VETERANS SEAL TEAM (VST) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated in the State of Montana, and registered as a public charity with the Internal Revenue Service; Effective Date of Exemption: October 1st 2015.
VST is actually an acronym for: Veterans Earning Trust, Experiencing Respect And National Solidarity – – Systematically Eliminating Alienation and, Loneliness – – (understanding that) Together Everyone Advances Mutually.
VST remains a ‘Self-funded Non Profit’ and dedicates its financial resources toward Quality of Life Improvements primarily targeting the Homeless Veteran – while also attending to the Displaced, Disadvantaged, Wounded and Retired Veterans.
MODEL FOR SUCCESS
Without going into great detail here; we believe three critical – follow-along steps exist for this model to be successful. These steps need to be both – identified and strictly adhered to, and are as follows:
Let’s call them “The Three R’s” – Recovery, Rehabilitation and Reintegration.
These steps must be supported by an organizations’ staff; both professional and non-professional, and flexible enough to expand their capabilities according to the demand placed upon their resources; for which of course not being left without YST’s financial support and other pertinent resources. However, at the core of this model’s success we are fully cognizant as to the critical importance of counseling. Given this – there has to be, in every case – a method for “Reaching the Veteran” – and while doing so.. absent as we would say: “Of Toxic Insults” (usually drug related) – which effectively serve to compromise the best efforts of even the most acclaimed professionals.
Why is this ?
Medical science researchers are just beginning to more fully understand both the role, and critical importance of the Human Microbiome, and how it plays into, and out to – nearly every functioning area of the body; most especially related to brain function, mental health, and even suicide. This realization is (in part) that where there is an imbalance in the Gut’s commensal biological terrain, there’s a corresponding, and direct imbalance to the biochemical terrain of the Brain. Understanding this, one can appreciate why pharmacology (drug interventions) programs have proven ineffective in addressing the emotional / psychological improvements being sought; l but until recently – not understanding why.
The link below represents some of the most current research (published 2017) – through which the paper’s “Abstract” – will help enlighten the reader as to what is happening, and has been absent in treatment programs that will prove effective in their outcomes.
VST’s PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY & METHODOLOGY
Again, and as it is worth restating: Our position is that “Real Recovery” – from Prescription Medications and/or Illicit Drug/Alcohol Abuse – cannot be fully realized, absent the step where we
“Break the Addiction Cycle.”
This is a milestone which has repeatedly proven itself, and highlights a measure of ‘Our Continued Success’ – which directly equates to “Our Veteran’s Success.”
This process is accomplished (in part) by following our “Clinically Proven Program” – of Neural Nutrition and Gut Microbial Health restoration. To accomplish this, we employ two natural – time tested (circa 1993 and 1996) dietary supplements. These are: 1) Our Probiotic / Prebiotic, Soil Based Organism (SBO) complex, called FloraStat ~ P-A™ in capsule form, and 2) Our brain chemistry enhancing formula, appropriately named – relative to an excellent time for its administration: Breakfast for the Brain® (BftB) – available in either Capsule, or Nano Spray. We hope to make a transition exclusively to the spray version, as logistically this form lends itself to a more robust production. The Nano Spray has proven itself very palatable, and with ease of periodic administration – while showing a significantly improved effectiveness for many users; over that of our time-honored capsule version. Our Nano Spray was more fully developed in early 2014, to accommodate its complex of precise formula ingredients, numbering 25+ as are embodied under its internationally patented process.
