POST TRAUMATIC STRESS

5. Concentration Camp Survivors - "In
1960 I (Abram Hoffer) planned to study the effect of nicotinic acid on a
large number of aging people living in a sheltered home. A new 1 had
been built. I approached the director of this home, Mr. George Porteous.
I arranged to meet him & told him what I would like to do & why. I gave
him an outline of its properties, its side effects & why I thought it
might be helpful. Mr. Porteous agreed & we started this
A short while after my 1st contact Mr. Porteous came to
my office at University Hospital.
He wanted to take nicotinic acid
himself, he told me, so that he could discuss the reaction more
intelligently with people living in his institution. He wanted to know
if it would be safe to do so.
That fall he came again to talk to me & this time he said he wanted to tell
me what had happened to him.
Then I discovered he had been with the Canadian troops who had sailed to
Hong Kong in 1940, had been promptly captured by the Japanese & had
survived 44 months in 1 of their notorious prisoner of war camps.
25% of the Canadian soldiers died in these camps. They suffered from
severe malnutrition from starvation & nutrient deficiency. They
suffered from beri beri, pellagra, scurvy, infectious diseases, &
brutality from the guards.
Porteous, a physical education instructor, had been fit weighing about
190 pounds when he got there.
When he returned home he weighed only
2/3rds of that. On the way home in a hospital ship the soldiers were fed
& given extra vitamins in the form of rice polishings (bran/germ).
There were few vitamins available then in tablets or capsules.
He seemingly recovered but had remained very ill. He suffered from both
psychological & physical symptoms.
He was anxious, fearful &
slightly paranoid. Thus, he could never be comfortable sitting in a room
unless he sat facing the door. This must have arisen from the fear of
the guards. Physically he had severe arthritis.
He could not raise
his arms above his shoulders. He suffered from heat & cold sensitivity.
In the morning he needed his wife's help in getting out of bed & to get
started for the day.
He had severe insomnina.
For this he was given
barbiturates in the evening & to help awaken him in the morning, he was given
Later I read the growing literature on the Hong Kong veterans & there is
no doubt they were severely & permanently damaged. They suffered from a
high death rate due to heart disease, crippling arthritis, blindness & a host of other conditions.
Having outlined his background he then told
me that 2 weeks after he started to take nicotinic acid, 1 gram
after each meal, (always with food) he
was normal. He was able to raise his arms to their full extension, & he
was free of all the symptoms which had plagued him for so long.
began to prepare my report  I obtained his Veterans Administration
Chart. It came to me in 2 cardboard boxes & weighed over 10 pounds, but
over 95% was accumulated before he started on the vitamin.
10 years after he started on the vitamin there was very little
One could judge the efficacy of the vitamin by
weighing the chart paper before & after he started on it.
remained well as long as he stayed on the vitamin until his death when
he was Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan. In 1962, after having been
well for 2 years, he went on a holiday to the mountains with his son & forgot to take
his nicotinic acid with him. By the time he returned home almost the
entire symptomatology had returned.
Porteous was enthusiastic about nicotinic acid & began
to tell all his friends about it. He told his doctor (who) cautioned him
that he might damage his liver. Porteous replied that if it meant he
could stay as well as he was until he died from a liver ailment he would
still not go off it. His doctor became an enthusiast as well & within a few years
had started over 300 of his patients on the vitamin (B3). He never saw any
examples of liver disease from nicotinic acid (niacin).
Niacinamide which is NOT flushing.)
I have treated over 20 prisoners from Japanese camps & from European
concentration camps since then with equally good results. I estimated
that 1 year in these camps was equivalent to 4 years of aging, i.e. 4
years in camp would age a prisoner the equivalent of 16 years of normal
George Porteous wanted every prisoner of war from the eastern camps
treated as he had been. He was not successful in persuading the
Government of Canada that nicotinic acid would be very
helpful so he turned to fellow prisoners, both in Canada (Hong Kong
Veterans) & to American Ex-Prisoners of War. These American veterans
suffered just as much as had the Canadian soldiers since they were
treated in exactly the same abysmal way. The ones who started on the
vitamin showed the same response. Recently 1 of these soldiers, a
retired officer, wrote to me after being on nicotinic acid 20 years that
he felt great, owed it to the vitamin & that when his arteries were examined during a simple
operation they were completely normal. He wrote, 'About 2 years ago,
I was hit, was bleeding down the neck. The MDs took the opportunity to
They said the arteries under the ears look like they had never been
There is an important lesson from the experiences of these veterans &
their response to megadoses of nicotinic acid.
This is that every human
exposed to severe stress & malnutrition for a long enough period
of time will develop a permanent need for large amounts of this vitamin
& perhaps for several others.
(Helps to take with low dose
This is happening on a large scale in Africa where the
combination of starvation, malnutrition & brutality is reproducing the conditions
suffered by the veterans.
Those who survive will be permanently damaged biochemically, & will
remain a burden to themselves & to the community where they live. Will
society have the good sense to help them recover by making this vitamin
available to them in optimum doses?"
(Reminder, titer slowly up or down when on a RX or vitamin regime,
taking lots of fluids.) (Also good for heart problems.)

Re-establishing Normalcy - Understanding Emotions
"Picture the brain is as an onion folded over like a fist, with millions
of 2-way connections going in all directions & between all of the
The brain can be thought of as having 3 major parts:
(new brain), the limbic system, & the paleo-cortex (old or
The outer layer (neo-cortex) allows us to
consciously integrate with the world, the middle layer (limbic system)
allows us to process how our body and brain perceive & respond to the
world, & the deep layer (original brain) manages the internal workings of
the body. The neo- or cerebral cortex (also called your gray matter or
cell bodies of the brain), plays a key role in memory, attention,
perceptual awareness, thought, language, & consciousness...
The region of the brain just beneath the neo-cortex is often referred to
by the collective term limbic system (a part of your brain’s
white matter or connecting wires) & has a number of structures that help
to integrate the outside world & the inner body. The components of the
limbic system have multiple roles, many of which are affected or are
malfunctioning with PDS. One role of the limbic system is to help to
integrate sensory & motor signals between the body & the brain, so that we
can be aware of & use our bodies effectively...Probably the most important
role of the limbic system for folks with PDS is its responsibility in
emotions & long-term memories...
2 key structures
of the limbic system, the amygdala & hippocampus, are
particularly important in dealing with significant events & stressors & in putting down long-term memories of these events. The limbic
system is directly linked by nerves & brain chemicals to
all of the organs & parts of the body that may be involved in these
emotions. These linkages, particularly the vagus nerve, result in all of
the bodily responses (sweating, rapid breathing, fast heart rate,
tightening of the gut, bowels & bladder) to fear & other emotions. Fear
response & conditioning (such as with PTSD, anxiety, or pain) are
2 common emotional issues that the limbic system regulates. The
amygdala is the center of emotional memory, emotional learning,
behavior, alcohol overuse, & long-term memory development. The other key
structure, the hippocampus, plays key roles in long-term memory &
spatial navigation. Although the amygdala may house the primary
emotional responses to stress or trauma, it requires integration of
the stress or trauma experience by the hippocampus to truly recall, be
able to process, & clearly remember the specifics of the exposure.
Otherwise, you may recall how you felt during your periods of stress
(anxious, uneasy, palpitations, short of breath) without actually be
able to objectively recall the specific events that initially made you
feel that way.
This disconnect between how you feel about an event,
what you remember about that event, & what you think may be causing those
feelings is a common factor limiting recovery. Injury to or disease of the
hippocampus, such as with PTSD or Alzheimer’s disease, results in memory
problems & disorientation as the 1st symptoms...
The original or paleocortex (also part of your white matter brain or
connecting wires) joins all elements of the body, from the nerves
receptors of the skin, joints, & the internal organs to the action nerves
of the muscles & heart, to the higher centers of the brain, including the
limbic system & neocortex. In addition to providing the
pathway for all of this sensory data to be transmitted to the higher
brain, signals from the brainstem are essential to maintaining the
minute-to-minute life functions of the body...
All our emotions stimulate us. They stimulate us to think & act
in certain ways. It’s all part of the way our bodies & brains work. The
emotions that we had as infants & children actually determined the way our
brains are initially wired. These also determine how our brains are wired
now. They determine what we like and don’t like, how hard we work or don’t
work, & how we relate to others. We don’t always have to do what they say,
but they prod us never the less...Emotions are chemicals & impulses” & that they are tied up
with our thoughts."

COMMENTARY - When both we & our doctors fail to help us, be reminded the
human is a spirit (offspring of our Father God Who is a Spirit). 1st
our human spirit needs Holy Spirit intervention. 2nd we have a soul
(mind/emotions/will-power) which needs remediation. 3rd we have/wear
a suit of flesh which also needs attention. We are a 3 part trinity
just like the spiritual Trinity (Father/Son/Holy-Spirit). Thus, each
human needs a spiritual overhaul. Spiritually we each need to
invite God's Son, Yeshua/Jesus to be our Messiah AND Holy Spirit baptizer.
We do not realize the significance of this until AFTER (in same manner we
do not recognize the power/relevance of intercourse until after it has 1st
occurred in marriage or rape/fornication/adultery/other. The prince
had to awaken up Sleeping Beauty with a kiss. Our human spirit needs
to awaken to the kiss of Jesus.)

as long as a person has the memories of the trauma, then you can
say to them to just (during the prayer ministry only) focus on that
feeling of that trauma like fear, or anger, anxiety, &/or when
somebody put them down & they had a reaction.
As long as you activate the
neuropathway of that particular incident of the trauma, then while its
connected, you (during ministry) do the (hand)clapping & say (in
"I command the power of this event & memories of
& neuropathway to be
'cut off' (clap)."
Then say immediately, (in Jesus' name)
"this will be
replaced by brand new
neuro-pathways of peace, love, safety & acceptance."
This is the supernatural way of eliminating PTSD (Post
Traumatic Streee Disorder), especially in people with real life
threatening experiences & that's deeply-deeply embedded, even like
satanic ritual abuse" (SRA).
Regarding nightmares, "What
the Lord told me to do was as I have said:
ministered to her in the
supernatural. When she was thinking about it & the visual images,
that's when (where) the neurological connections have been made for
those particular (traumatic) memories.

these memories of the event &

& now (I loose from heaven's storehouses, in Jesus' name) new

SID: 1 of the traumas that most people have heard of is PTSD.
MIKE: PTSD is a mental health diagnosis, that means post-traumatic
stress disorder, which means that a person carries enough symptoms of
unresolved trauma that their mind & emotions are affected, (as to) how
they feel about themselves (& others). They can have chronic nerve pain,
suicidal thoughts, flashbacks, nightmares & night terrors that take them
right back to that traumatic event. It's been famous with: military folks,
1st responders like police officers, firefighters & emergency medical
technicians. But I'm saying to you, anybody can have post-traumatic
stress, depending upon the level of trauma, because (most) everybody's had
The issue is, does it still haunt you today? Do bad memories &
images still affect the way you think, feel & make choices or think about
yourself? PTSD a disorder (medical/insurance label/diagnosis but spiritual
revelation suggests that) unresolved trauma is a soul injury.
Medical & psychological professionals say that they can help people with
medicine & coping skills, but many of them say there is no healing for
PTSD. I can tell you that over the last 7 years, I have personally prayed
for thousands of people & trained over 10,000 people in how to bring
healing prayer, to folks who carry PTSD. We have over 12,000 documented
testimonies of people who have been completely set free from the symptoms
of PTSD, where they don't have to be on their medicine anymore. They don't
have to continue counseling. (Instead) they are praying for others & (God
is) setting them free from PTSD because of the healing that they have

PTSD part 5: Emotional Trauma’s Impact on the Brain 6/18/2012 @
"The hippocampus is responsible for memory & experience assimilation.
Additionally it acts as a gatekeeper for new events; deciding if they are
safe, something to be concerned about or even dangerous.
is how it works: the 5 senses perceive an event. When the hippocampus gets
word of what is going on it must decide several things. 1st it decides if
an immediate response is needed (such as fight or flight), or if the event
is a stressor at all, or maybe even if the event is a humdrum event.
Basically it puts events in an index file in the brain. When there has
been ongoing or unresolved trauma the hippocampus doesn’t sort as well.
will take situations with any similarity to the original traumatic
incident & label them dangerous,
which in turn increases cortisol production, which further
damages the hippocampus’ ability to process events appropriately. This
is why survivors of traumatic events have a startle reflex.
The amygdala controls emotional
regulation & in individuals with PTSD it
responds to fear rather like Pavlov’s dogs responded to
the sound of a bell. Where there has been repeated or
unresolved trauma the amygdala goes into overdrive
producing strong emotions even in reaction to minor
In PTSD the amygdala can actually be enlarged
physically, like a muscle that is used constantly.
The reticular formation is located on the brain stem &
has several functions: it maintains general wakefulness,
handles habituation (decides what to tune out), keeps us
in line with what we consider normal, & pushes out
thinking that is outside our belief system. It impacts
what we believe about what we can be and what we deserve
in life. During traumatic events the reticular
formation is opened & neural pathways are
formed in ways that causes us (contributes) to
believe that bad will always come. 1 of the reasons
that straight cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is
insufficient for trauma is because the reticular
formation remains closed.
Lessons learned in CBT are
remembered in the intellect but are not able to impact
our emotional beliefs.
These 3 basic brain parts keep us stuck in trauma &
impact our lives in negative ways.
1. The hippocampus shrinks and does a poor job
filing memories away into appropriate areas of the

stress situation is currently happening, or conversely

PTSD Part 3: Staying Present When Your Past Invades Today 6/4/2012
"Trust me; you are not going crazy. Everyone feels that way. Who
wouldn’t when their past comes rushing into their present on a regular

suddenly confusing. You are NOT going crazy.

Ever see someone after a traumatic
event rocking back & forth? It is an instinctive self-soothing
If you watch web-streams of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem you will see
people doing this while praying.
Give it a try & see if it helps
Some people find that deep belly breathing helps them calm down. Inhale
slowly through your nose, & exhale slowly through your mouth. Use your
diaphragm. Feel your belly pull in when you inhale & go out when you
exhale. Pay attention to how it feels...
Maintain a list of soothing & relaxing activities such as walking,
playing with your pets, gardening, etc...
Part of PTSD are the old tapes that play in the mind. Old
messages & lies learned from the past experiences. Meditate on the
truth. What does the Bible say? Dwell on the truth. Be careful that you
don’t allow yourself to dwell on the negatives. Too often when dealing
with PTSD people will focus on the judgment of God. If you are
His you have passed out of judgment into mercy (1 Peter 2:9-10). Find 1 of those lists of scripture of who you are in Christ. Keep that to
meditate on. Truth be known, we are better able to recall things we
learn during times of trauma. That is part of why those old messages are
so strong in your mind. Turn that to your advantage by memorizing truth
when anxiety takes hold of you."
