Meet our guest Renita Herrmann, MS, CCH, RsHom(NA). She practices in the San Francisco Bay Area and has a second office in Mendocino County. Renita is a certified CEASE Therapist treating those with Autism Spectrum Disorder and was Founder, Board Member, and Executive Director of the Homeopathy Institute of the Pacific.
The multitalented Renita earned her A.S. in Aeronautics and M.S. in Natural Health. If you would like to see her in-person, Renita will be speaking at Joint Annual Homeopathic Conference JAHC in Long Beach April 2014 about PTSD in veterans. She's in the middle of writing a book.
Working With Homeless Veterans | Renita founded two homeopathic clinics for the homeless, MNRC in March 2005; and the Mary Isaak Center (Committee on the Shelterless)
As a homeopath, she has seen many veterans return to civilian life, and continues to help through referrals from the Vet Center in San Francisco. sfhomeopath.com
Educational Background | After becoming interested in the alternative medicine field while still an airline pilot, Renita studied during layovers and received her MS in Natural Health (summa cum laude). Still needing to understand homeopathy a bit more, she signed up for a four-year program at the Institute of Classical Homeopathy.
Volunteerism | In love with homeopathy and the program, her four years went by quickly, including 2 years of clinical experience. Generous with her time, Renita volunteered at a local San Francisco clinic once a week, and has continued to do so at the Mission Neighborhood Resource Center since 2005.
Present Socio-Economic Circumstances | Now is the time to return our veterans back to health, even as we sort out the Affordable Care Act, we must address these pressing issues. Veteran's must deal with reintegrating into society with their handicaps of physical, emotional and mental trauma. Throughout history, war veterans have not been able to tell their stories to loved ones, nor feel safe due to their sensativities and triggers. Dealing with anger, rage, sadness, betrayal, rejection, self-doubt, depression and suicidal tendencies, we cannot simply provide drugs as a solution. Counseling, gentle therapy and alternatives must be sought to heal old wounds. Homeopathic remedies from the Homeopathic Pharmacopeoia of the United States have been documented to address all these issues.
♢ "America's Veterans have served their country with the belief that democracy and freedom are ideals to be upheld around the world."
~ John Doolittle
♢ "In Congress, while the House's proposed defense budget calls for significant increases, it also cuts 11 billion dollars from veterans spending - including healthcare and disability pay. Be clear: we can't equate spending on veterans with spending on defense." ~ Jennifer M. Granholm, Canadian-born American politician, educator, author and political commentator who served as Attorney General of Michigan and 47th governor of the U.S. state of Michigan.
♢ Speaking of recent legislative action to support veterans, we see that all is not unanimous in Congress. In a 259-157 vote, members passed the Honoring Our Promise to America's Veterans Act, H.J.Res. 72.
♢ "We have to pass this legislation today … to ensure that veterans and their survivors receive disability compensation benefits," Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) said.
♢ "We have to pass this legislation today to make sure that 517,000 low-income veterans and their family members receive their pensions.
♢ "We have to pass this legislation today unanimously so that three-quarters of a million students will receive their post-9/11 GI education benefits."
Spending On Vets | WASHINGTON — The federal government is spending more money on veterans than at any time in modern history, surpassing the tidal wave of spending following World War II and the demilitarizing of millions of troops.
♢ Expenditures hit $82 billion in 2007, because of the rising cost of health care, the expense of caring for an aging population of mostly Vietnam War veterans and a new crop of severely wounded troops from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
♢ That exceeds the $80 billion in inflation-adjusted dollars spent in 1947 after most of the 16.1 million Americans serving in World War II left the service, according to a Congressional Research Service report submitted to Congress last month.
♢ An 11% hike in spending to $91 billion is slated for the 2008 fiscal year, and the Department of Veterans Affairs has proposed $94 billion for 2009. And still more is needed, says U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., who is seeking another $3.3 billion for the 2009 budget proposal.
♢ "While we are spending more than in previous years, we are still not meeting many of the health care and benefits needs of our veterans," Murray says.
