"1000 Yard Stare" seen in Shell Shock, battle fatique, acute combat stress reaction, and  PTSD.


1   Combat soldiers know it as the 1000 Yard Stare. ‘They’ could see it in the faces of their war buddies and they knew that it was only a ‘matter of time in grade’ before everyone got it.

   The first published paper from a Civil War medical doctor (1871) labeled it ‘Soldiers’ Heart’- disruption of the autonomic nervous system regulation.

   In WWI they called it ‘shell shock’; in WWII it became ‘battle fatigue’; in the Korean War it was called ‘acute combat stress reaction’; in Viet Nam was known as ‘agent orange syndrome’ and ‘substance abuse’.

   After Viet Nam the research psychologists named it, ‘Post Traumatic Stress Reaction’ in 1980 and listed 12 behavioral symptoms; basically hyper and or hypo-reactivity and flashbacks.

  They used their ‘PTSD’ as a diagnostic code system for these symptoms so they could treat it using a special talk therapy called ‘cognitive behavioral therapy’(CBT).

2          The warriors saw it differently, from a physical perspective. Training to be a warrior is based on physical conditioning- repeating a skill until it is ‘mastered’.
         Mastery means that that skill is in ‘muscle memory’.
“Drill creates skill, for effective smooth coordinated sequential actions!’ (see father rescuing his son in "The Patriot")    After 3000 rounds a hand gun becomes part of your arm-eye muscle system.
      Warriors’ lives and the lives of their unit are dependent on acquiring muscle memory battle skills through drill, which are not different than the muscle memory skills of good surgeons, gifted athletes, jockeys, race car drivers.

3    As a surgeon I call ‘it’ being in the ‘zone’- your muscles not your brain controls your actions- making surgery, an ‘unconscious skill’. After completing 900 cases, the surgeon’s complication rates drop to minimal.  
   When you are in the ‘zone’ your body is in an alert healthy state controlled by the cell membrain system to maintain the life of your cells while they are doing their job.            ‘The Zone’ is a space of peak performance!

4   It is only in the combat zone, where real ‘fear’ is present, that cell muscle memory encodes that ‘fear’ in the form of cell signal microtubules (see #3 Lipton). The cells feel that they will die!
     In battle, these muscle cells instantaneously react- to either attack or run from the death threat. They already know how to move or take cover.

 5     The brain does not order that behavior, combat muscle behavior is a result of the cell membrains signal receptors responding in unison from incoming environmental sensory data to give fight or flight. 
      Intracellular communication is faster than the brain can process the data (see #1 The Patriot, the warrior's dance).The cells communicate using the as-fast-as-the-speed-of-light ancient meridian pathways.

 6   Implantation of those fear memories during the freeze response, is responsible for: disruptive acting out flashbacks, distancing intimacy relationships, isolation, withdrawal, abandonment, use of substances to self-medicate, employment issues, homicidal or suicidal behaviors, and the inability to be able to sleep again.

     Bringing the implanted ‘triggers’ back home is the problem. Removing these fear memory ‘thumb drives’ which are developed by all animals to protect themselves from a death attack, is the goal!
     Behavioral suppression drugs do not remove the source of the fear arousal behavior. They only slow or numb down the physiological stress reaction.

7   Now cell physiologists using electro-magnetic microscopes [‘EM’] have watched the ‘muscle memory’ being implanted on the cells ‘membrains’ as they respond to environmental stimuli of all types3.
    Carrying all those extra traumatic microtubules on your cells' surface lowers your body’s resiliency as US Army studies have demonstrated- after multiple deployments. Fearful energy waves running in the body cause construction of memory microtubule signal receptors. Neutralizing positive energy frequencies are needed to dissolve those triggers from their activated position.
    This is a quantum physics controlled system, a new way of thinking that American medicine must learn to apply. European, Russian and Chinese medicine are already using these principles. They call it Epigenetic Medicine.

  The warriors recognize the 1000 yard stare, the muscular hyperarousal state, the loss of fine motor skills, the monotone speech, the visual distortions and the lack of pre-frontal cortex control of behavior that is situationally inappropriate [dissociation].
   They know these signs. They call ‘it’ the ‘Go-Go’ combat stress reaction, the ‘Go-Go’ for short. It is not safe for them to hold a weapon during the Go-Go. The untreated Go-Go can cause homicide, suicides, drunken fights and jail time, or disappearance into the woods for weeks or years in attempt to stop trauma triggering.
  Go-Go is ‘standardly’ treated in civilian emergency rooms with IM Thorazine or a ‘B52’ (Benadryl, Haldol 5 mg. and Ativan 2mg.- from a civilian ED) and a 48 hour hospital lock down. Thorazine is suppressive therapy that stops the behavior without eliminating the cause of the behavior. The memory signal microtubules 'thumb drives' are still there waiting to alert again when triggered.

9   The best time to really ‘treat’ the Go-Go, to remove the memory microtubules, is while the traumatic microtubules are erect and driving the body’s behavior (see #2 Hameroff active microtubules above).
      As any good rifleman knows-
        "The enemy can only be shot
if it stands up from behind the boulders".
That is exactly what this energy medicine treatment does.
      Electrons from the battery units and the medics’ hands travel to the cell memory microtubules at below the speed of light and literally, unravel the traumatic microtubules.         The basic skill set remains, the fear arousal is gone.
The enemy is hidding down behind the boulders.

        Advanced Tactical Paramedics Protocols Handbook
Section 2: Tactical Medical Emergency Protocols (TMEP) p.99
"Behavorial Changes" = the Go-Go down range: Protocol states-
    "#6. After removing all weapons from the medic and the combative, violent, restrained patient (using 4 team members) give diazepam (Valium) 10 mg IM. Monitor respirations. Repeat after 30 minutes PRN. Urgent evacuation." 
         Valium is just suppressing his muscles (respiratory and skeletal). This is just a PUNT and does nothing to cure the 'Go-Go' combat reaction which is autonomic nervous system dysregulation (stuck in the hypersympathetic drive).  
               Treat the TRIGGERS!   KILL the TRIGGERS!!
Treat the source, the muscle membrane signaling triggers which drive the autonomic nervous system. You treat the Triggers by sending "PEP" to them through the meridians in the fascia. PEP is PHONONS, ELECTRONS, and PHOTONS- all are subatomic energy 'particles'. The 'Go-Go' is the best time to use the 26 point meridian acupressure tapping  to 'shoot' off those fear conditioned triggers and restart the parasympathetic system.           "KILL" the GO-GO!   STOP CHASING the symptoms!
        MASERs' tapping energetically releases the fear signaling muscle  memory tubules .                                    Do the full 7 steps even if someone sedated him with the diazepam- it will still work to release those triggers. It's YOU against those muscle memory triggers. AND, you know that you WILL destroy them with your hands' energy and strong intention!
    So in 20-58 minutes*, you,  the medic, should be able to erase the triggering memory using the electrons stored in your muscle mass and also reverse the sympathetic overdrive. The warrior's own team members can help by having two brothers tapping on each fist points while you hit the other 26 points. 
    Adding 3 MEND Microcurrent protocols from the FDA approved 'tens units' will potentiate this treatment by sending more electrons from the AA batteries directly into his muscles, his gut and his brain stem. When completed your patient will need hydration and a place to sleep off his Go-Go detoxification.
      Finally, it is NOT possible to "talk" anyone out of the Go-Go Reaction because the pre-frontal cortex is turned "OFF". But it is possible to drug him into apnea.     
'Biophysical treatments' like using the AED are FAST!
        *That 20'-58' duration is based on my clinical experience treating combat veterans who got their 'Go-Go' triggered state side.
       As a gynecological surgeon, I have never been in a combat zone working with acute Go-Go cases!  
      But I have stopped and rapidly cleared the same ptsd  hypersympathetic arousal state in outpatient surgery clinics.
      [Most of my treatment successes acquired their PTSD triggers in their own childhood bedrooms.]
      You with your muscle mass energy should be able to work faster that I can.

 All Medics  -once you have returned from serious combat field duty you are changed. You are wearing a new robe over your shoulders. You look at people and situations differently. You can not help but read faces everywhere you go. You read his face, what does he need me to do to make him better? Is he going to make it or should I move on to the next soldier? Is this site safe to work in? What can I use to fix that? What's left?  You carry no fear, only the complete calm that is needed to think through your processing. Your hands KNOW what to do! They have done it before, lots! You don't smell those smells, don't need to. The chaotic sounds disappear as you focus in on your job. Your muscle memory is working!
     I do not call that state 'hypervigilance' or do I mean you have 'ptsd', I call it being READY!  And that new robe feels just fine, it fits you.    It is the robe that you earned, that of the warrior-healer which you will wear forever!
