||As a classical homeopath, I cannot consult about the homeopathic
remedies for Gulf War Illnesses without discussing the true causes and
symptoms of GWS. Homeopathic prescribing is most dependent on the individual
symptoms of each sufferer, and so it is a most viable method of treatment
for the very diverse symptoms of GWS, but finding the causes of GWS is
important for prescribing too.
GWS causes many illnesses which are real and terrifying. It can be both
lethal and moderately contagious. It can be communicable through casual
and intimate contact of bodily fluids from sexual exchange and by airborne
contact by coughing and perspiration, making for secondary infectees. GWS
is not imagined as the U.S. Dept of Defense has alleged for the past 5
years while refusing proper medical care and benefits to the vets and their
families. To date GWS affects well over 160,000 of the Gulf War veterans.
This ever-growing statistic does not include the secondary infectees: the
wives, children, other family members, friends or associates who are sick,
disabled, dying or dead.
Whole families are now ill. Their babies are being born with severe
congenital defects and deformities, including being born with one or more
missing limbs, missing an eye or ear or organs, and blood disorders. Sixty
seven percent of babies born to Gulf War vets are affected, and over half
of all babies born in Iraq since the war are affected. Even their pets
are coming down with the GWS illnesses and dying. Iraq is also reporting
alarmingly high increases in rare and unknown diseases, primarily in their
children. Kuwait is also affected, as are the British veterans of the Gulf
At the end of the Gulf War, in March of 1991, the Pentagon hailed the
war as a virtually bloodless victory-- for the U.S. But it may take decades
and generations before the true casualty count is known.
Symptoms began immediately in some cases, but mostly they have appeared
6 months to 6 years after the time of exposure. They can get progressively
worse until the victim is partially or completely disabled.
Causes, as known thus
- Sarin a deadly nerve agent, same as used in the Tokyo subway
- Mustard gas, a blistering agent that can burn flesh and lungs.
- Fallout of biological agents released during and after allied
bombings of Iraqi chemical warfare munitions facilities.
- Anthrax and Botulinum toxoid vaccines and several other experimental
vaccines, all forcibly administered to US troops as guinea pigs. (There
are remedies of these listed below.)
- Vets were also exposed to at least 21 potential reproductive toxicants
possibly harmful to them and their future children.
- Pyridostigmine bromide, an anti-nerve agent pre-treatment drug
forcibly administered to the US soldiers; it's use in conjunction with
Deet insecticide repellant may have been noxious.
- Fifteen Germ warfare agents such as mycoplasma fermentans
and incognitus which infects human cells and damages them.
- Last but not least, and this one has remained mostly hidden from public
knowledge: Depleted Uranium (DU) in the American and British weapons
and armor used in the Gulf War. Troops and the civilian population were
exposed to weapons made from radioactive depleted uranium. DU is the most
deadly cause of GWS. It consists of deadly radioactive nuclear waste and
it is capable of causing almost all of the symptoms of the Gulf War illnesses.
DU was used in warfare for the first time in Operation Desert
Storm. It was the Pentagon's first live field test of armor-piercing bullets,
tank shells, and tank armor made of this deadly radioactive nuclear waste.
Because of DU's ability to penetrate steel, it has become a popular weapon
with the brass. When fired, a DU shell combusts on impact, and as much
as 70% of the material is released and turns into an aerosol of radioactive
uranium particles. It becomes an irradiating powder in the air. It travels
in the wind or becomes mixed with dust and dirt. It can be inhaled and
ingested and it can be trapped in the lungs or kidneys.
'Depleted' Uranium is a cleverly deceptive term for the radioactive
by-product of the uranium enrichment process. 'Depleted' does not mean
non-radioactive. Depleted uranium is radioactive, with a half life of 4.4
billion years. It now contaminates battlefields, military bases,
proving grounds, the hundreds of thousands of soldiers who handled it,
and the innocent victims of war. DU remains imbedded in soil, water, and
bodily fluids long after its use, where millions can come into contact
with it. When these highly toxic uranium particles enter the body, they
become lodged in major organs or bones, affecting the bone marrow and producing
The causes of GWS, when they are viewed objectively instead of through
the haze of diversion and disinformation that are served up by the government
and the corporate media, prove that the Pentagon's brass knowingly used
their own soldiers as disposable guinea pigs and cannon fodder, and they
should be liable for such behavior. ( Documention can be found in many
press articles and on the Internet.)
How the combination of these toxic and radioactive materials affect
the immune system is not yet known, but the symptoms tell a lot.
The many illnesses,
symptoms and disorders of GWS
These include many autoimmune symptoms and disorders; severe and chronic
fatigue; chronic vomiting and diarrhea and other gastrointestinal illnesses;
chronic fevers; skin sores and rashes including ones that look like giant
ring worm; muscle and joint pain; severe weight loss (a wasting away);
immuno-suppressant disorders similar to AIDS; heart problems, irregular
heart beat; shortness of breath; headaches; bleeding and hemorrhaging;
nasal congestion; twitching; oral ulcerations, blisters on the lips; swollen
lymph nodes; multiple chemical sensitivities; severe muscle and joint pain
and aches; chronic and severe headaches; hemorrhaging from any orifice;
urinary tract infections, urinary urgency, incontinence, and other urinary
and bladder and kidney disorders; nerve damage; numbness and tingling;
partial paralysis; swollen lymph nodes; drooling; excessive sweating; cramping;
diverticulitis; convulsions, loss of consciousness and coma; bizarre tumors
and often brain stem tumors, and various radiation-caused cancers; lymphomas;
leukemia; cervical cancer; severe sleep disorders, including insomnia for
days at a time, night sweats; respiratory infections; an inability to function
physically and mentally; neurologic and neuropsychological symptoms; Hodgkin's
Disease; lymphomas; leukemia; tumors and various radiation caused cancers;
Graves' Disease of the thyroid; microorganism infections; strange sensations
that a body part is missing or as splashed with hot water or in ice; Multiple
Sclerosis; Lou Gehrig's Disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and Guillain-Barr
Syndrome-like symptoms. The female partners of affected G.I.'s and female
G.I.'s are also developing ovarian cysts and tumors, cervical cancer, herpes,
chlamydia; and a great number of other symptoms. Anxiety or nervousness
are common, as are severe depression, deep sadness, memory loss, confusion,
difficult concentration, personality changes, mood swings, irritability,
violent angry rages, the need to calm down by self medicating with alcohol
or drugs; and many are suicidal.

Aurum metallicum [metallic gold]
Depression caused by Gulf War Syndrome: Aurum is wonderful remedy
to avoid or carefully replace anti-depressant drugs when the disposition
fits. Many Anti-depressants such as Prozac and Zoloft are
being prescribed by M.D.'s for the depression, grief and desperation which
affects most sufferers of GWS because their lives are in ruin. They are
very ill and being told it's all in their heads. Many can no longer function
or work. Death and suicide is high among these vets, and the numbers are
part of the cover-up. Depression, sadness, grief, and the trauma
of all of the losses incured lead to suicidal tendencies, which are worse
from pain, and impotency. They feel surrounded by a dark black cloud and
alone, a failure and forsaken, having fallen from grace because of their
losses. Self-condemnation and self-reproach about what has not been achieved
and a sense of worthlessness, is followed by self-destructive attitudes.
Ailments from violence. Multiple Sclerosis and spinal degeneration. Alcoholism.
General weakness. Paralysis with madness. Insomnia.

vision loss, the upper or lower half of objects are invisible; glaucoma;

the head when cold; head feels full, giddy and hot; with headache; from
Worse from < Emotions; failure; night; waking; right-side; cold
weather, cloudy, winter; getting cold; from sunset to sunrise, night; noise.
Better from > Heat, warmth, cool open air, cool bathing; walking
in open air; evenings; music; moonlight.
Sadness, depression, despair, despondency and disappointment is their
plague. A heavy weight (like gold metal) is carried within their psyche.
When depressed they feel surrounded by a dark black cloud with a deep sense
of hopelessness. They are prone to seasonal depressions which are worse
in the darkness of winter and when the sun doesn't shine. They have a deep
feeling of having "fallen from grace", as a result of their unrealized
aspirations and there are losses and failures. When depressed, thay are
inflexible and can't see any possibilty for changing their life. They want
to die, and may talk and think cheerfully of death and suicide as a way
out. Death as the solution to their suffering is very appealing and freeing
to them. Financial loss or a business failure is a loss of their "golden
touch: and can overwhelm their sense of self-worth.
Right-sided symptoms. Chilly.

They are very secretive and closed to keep the deep, dark secret (skeleton
in the closet) hidden. The hidden factor is subtle, because they keep it
from themselves and others. Like a chameleon, they need to fit in and conform
so they won't be found-out or judged by others. Self-protection is always
expressed in some way, and they are elusive. They are always trying to
please and may change depending on who they are with. It is a very guilt
ridden remedy and they may use the word "guilty" a lot, and can
feel guilty for no distinctive reason. This is an aspect of self-blame
and shame. The shame isn't always clinically sexual, but somehow it always
affects the sexuality or is sexually expressed. There is usually some history
of abuse, suppression and manipulation and they feel frail and unsafe.
