Summary

The director of the Killology Research Group shares “a thorough examination of the emotional and physical effects of deadly conflict” (Kirkus Reviews).On Combat examines the stress resulting from engaging in deadly battle and its effects on the human body, from the heart and the nervous system to visual and auditory perception to memory. The historical perspective on the evolution of combat provided in this text further deepens our understanding of the brave men and women who train their minds and bodies to go to that place from which others flee. Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, a war veteran and former West Point psychology professor, presents combat coping strategies, demonstrating how one can train the mind to be inoculated against stress, fear, and even pain. This fresh and informative look at post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) details how to prevent it, how to survive it, how to come out of it stronger, and how to help others who are experiencing it. Grossman underscores the importance of post-combat debriefing, when warriors gather to share, learn from each other, and begin to heal from the horror. Based on extensive new research, Grossman’s findings are supported by revealing quotes and anecdotes from combat veterans and other leaders in the warrior community.

    "It’s a strange modern-day conundrum that we have so much information on health and medical science, and yet many people struggle to feel well. 
    Many experts blame it on health issues arising from too much sugar, chemicals, dyes, preservatives, and other additives in our food.  
    The general public is learning more and more that we have to make healthy choices on our own and really look at food ingredients. 
    But something else has come to light. 
    We’ve been learning about our stomach’s microbiome for the last 150 years, but it’s not really mainstream knowledge. 
    And we haven’t really understood it.  
    The microbiome is the community of bacteria living in the gastrointestinal tract.  
    What’s surprising and new to us is that scientists are learning it actually plays a critical role in not only our digestion, but also regulating metabolism, our immune system, mood, vitality, and overall brain health. 
    Our microbiome even influences the long-term risk for Parkinson’s disease.  
    Our bodies contain 10 times more microbial cells than human cells! We now know that we couldn’t live long without the microbiome. " - Sharen Ling
