We have a unique biological approach, SGB, to helping PTSD/PTSI.
Please make a tax deductible contribution today to help us treat Vets in need.
It’s estimated that over 2 million soldiers have PTSD/PTSI (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder/Post-Traumatic Stress Injury). A promising treatment is called SGB (Stellate Ganglion Block) and was first discussed in front of Congress in 2010.
Eugene Lipov M.D. is a world-renown anesthesiologist, the Chief Science Officer of the Global PTSI Foundation, and the first to report on treating PTSD/PTSI with SGB, demonstrating an efficacy rate of 70%+.
These men and women share their story as they struggle for life after violence, their experience with PTSD/PTSI and the Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB).
The Healing Hero Fund provides payment for the Stellate Ganglion Block when veterans cannot afford to pay for the procedure. The cost of SGB is $1,000-- $1,500 per procedure.

Please share how you came to be aware of the Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB)?
I was contacted by a former Marine by the name of Jamie Cox. He was sent to speak with me on behalf of GySgt Moreland from the Marine Corps recruiting depot in our hometown. GySgt Moreland knew of my situation and also my son’s, who is also a Marine. Jamie informed me of a procedure he had done in Chicago by Dr. Lipov called Stellate Ganglion Block.
Please share how you came to be aware of the Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB).
My parents saw Dr. Lipov on an episode of The Doctors. They knew that I had found no real help/cure from the VA (medications and therapy) and knew I needed something; and that I had almost exhausted all of my options.
When did you know the Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) had worked, what did you first notice?
The night two days later was the best night sleep I ever had in years. But it was a 12-year-old a day later that really made me realize how much I used to blow up.
My daughter specifically. I dropped her off at the mall and gave her some cash. Well, she lost it in the dressing room. She was so scared to call me because of how I would blow up. She did, bless her dear heart, and told me how she lost the money. I calmly responded with, “well you are just going to have to do some more chores. Dishes or something.”
The line got dead quiet. Silent. She responded with, “this shot changed you. For the better”. She was 12.
