EXCLUSIVE: Navy launches study of a new PTSD treatment



All it takes to treat soldiers suffering from PTSD is a single shot in the neck, at least according to one Chicago doctor.



Dr. Eugene Lipov, an anesthesiologist and founder of Chicago’s Advanced Pain Centers, says he has successfully treated 14 military veterans — and dozens of others afflicted by the disorder — using a single anesthetic injection to nerves in the neck.


Now, years after Lipov began trying to sell the Pentagon on the tactic, the Navy has launched a two-year study of his approach.Dr. Anita Hickey, the principal investigator in the Navy’s trials, said the procedure could prove more attractive to some soldiers than current treatments for PTSD.



Katie Drummond has the story.

“Who knows how it would’ve turned out if I had gone. … I gotta recalibrate everything because a number of my plans were going to be projects with Tim. I have been covering that stuff for almost 20 years. All of us hope to recognize that moment when it’s no longer a good thing to do, spiritually and personally.”

- Author-filmmaker Sebastian Junger, who was supposed to have been in Libya with photographer Tim Hetherington when he was killed there on April 20. Junger talks to The Daily about “War,” his late collaborator, and why he may not cover another conflict.

"According to a recent survey by the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend over $16..."


According to a recent survey by the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend over $16 billion this year on Mother’s Day — the most of any national holiday other than Christmas. But Mother’s Day wasn’t always a commercial bonanza. It began as something deeply personal.



In May 1907, Anna Jarvis, a Methodist schoolteacher from Grafton, W.Va., held a memorial service at her church to honor her mother, who had died two years earlier. The following year, Jarvis hatched the idea of expanding this commemoration to the broader public: She envisioned the creation of a separate day, set aside each year, to honor the sacrifices of all mothers nationwide. She wrote letters to newspapers, churches and politicians across the country, enlisting them in the promotion of her new holiday. Her tireless campaign was met with almost-instant success: In 1908, on the second Sunday in May, the first Mother’s Day celebrations were observed in towns across the country. In the following years, mayors and governors began issuing annual proclamations, and in 1914, just six years after Jarvis’ letter-writing campaign began, President Woodrow Wilson designated Mother’s Day a national holiday.



- Jesse Einhorn in “The mom mass market: Mother’s Day — from tribute to commercial cash cow in a few short years.”
