I have been a military physician for most of my career. And I have seen a lot of functional marines and sailors with Chronic Fatigue, Depression, Anxiety, TBI, and PTSD who didn’t seek treatment because they felt physically strong or didn’t want to take medications due to their operational status. I have also witnessed close friends report exhaustion and near helplessness. Witnessing firsthand their transformation after receiving MeRT treatment made me a believer in its effectiveness.”
