Quiet Explosions - the documentary
One hundred and fifty-four veterans commit suicide each week. Quiet Explosions is
the story of Special Forces Green Beret, Andrew Marr, who returned home from his third deployment, a quietly broken man. The
high-ranking explosives expert suffered a multitude of traumatic brain injuries after being “front and center”
to hundreds if not thousands of detonations in Afghanistan.
Issued thirteen mind-altering medications including narcotics by the
VA, Marr continued to suffer fatigue, depression, panic anxiety, disorientation, memory loss, depression, and chronic pain.
His favorite bedtime companions, whiskey and a loaded shotgun, almost destroyed him and his family. When it was almost
too late, he found Dr. Mark Gordon, Neuroendocrinologist, who developed a safe treatment protocol for TBI with or without
PTSD. Their work has been helping veterans and civilians through their Warrior Angels Foundation and the Millennium-TBI Project.
An estimated 2.1 million people--military
and others--sustain a TBI annually. The science used to develop this treatment is behind why conventional protocols have failed
and why this very specific kind of healing, can alter the course of people's lives forever. This documentary film is not to
be missed. Based upon Andrew and Adam Marrs' best seller - Tales from the Blast Factory(link).
