The Collier County Veterans Program recurring event

The Veterans Council conducts several public patriotic ceremonies throughout the year.  They include Memorial Day, Indedpendence Day parade, Veterans Day, and Flag Day(June 14).  Council members staff these events by organizing speakers, setting up venues, speaking to crowds, and performing patriotic rituals.

In addition, we gather to support funerals of veterans in Lee and Collier Counties.  We also volunteer to staff veteran-related fund raisers and special events.  Our monthly meetings provide a friendly forum where veteran groups can make public announcements, network, and support each other with information.  They are given a platform to announce their upcoming events, recent successes, and invite veterans to support their cause.

3)    Core 360
4)    Free evaluations.
5)    Come to try out the new Core360! 
This  appreciation event is a great way to get informed about natural health modalities.
 The Magnesphere is the latest piece of equipment in chiropractor Dr. Tim Novelli’s arsenal for treating wounded veterans.
Novelli — the founder of the Patriot Project, which works to provide chiropractic care to active military, their families, wounded veterans and gold star dependents — treats veterans who’ve been awarded a Purple Heart for no charge at his North Canton practice.
The Magnesphere provides whole body magnetic resonance therapy, a medical treatment that uses a low-level magnetic field to activate specific cells or tissues, according to Magnecutical Health, the company that makes the devices.
Every tissue has its own frequency, and the therapy helps to heal and realign those molecules, Novelli said. The Magnesphere doesn’t cure anything, but it does help with symptoms without any side effects, he said.
The device can be used to manage multiple conditions including autism, Lyme Disease and MS, as well as post-traumatic stress disorder, Novelli said.
It offers an alternative to hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a successful way of treating PTSD, but one that does not require the patient to spend hours in a claustrophobic hyperbolic chamber, he said.
In contrast, the Magnesphere — essentially two large circles that sit on either side of a metal-free recliner, allows patients to recline and relax, and watch TV or listen to music during treatment. At Novelli’s office, the therapy takes place in a wood paneled room with aromatherapy and a warm portable fireplace.
You see results quickly — after 12 visits, a patient’s mood has changed, and after 18 you definitely see a noted difference, he said.
It can also help with phantom limb effects often experienced by someone who’s lost a limb, he said.
While serving in Afghanistan in 2008, Petry was shot through both legs and lost his hand when a grenade he picked up to throw away from his fellow soldiers detonated, the action for which he was awarded the Medal of Honor.
While using the Magnesphere at Novelli’s office earlier this week, Petry said he felt tingling in the scar tissue in his legs and his amputated hand.
The device goes through the whole body and finds injuries, Novelli said.
Right now, Novelli treats Purple Heart veterans with the magnetosphere for free in his office, but his goal is to bring the treatment to their homes.
The Magnesphere has a portable version called the Halo that can be assembled over any recliner. The Patriot Project has launched a crowd-funding campaign, Halos for Heroes, to get the device into wounded veteran’s homes.
The goal is provide the best possible care to “those who need it most,” said Donald “Doc” Ballard, a retired colonel in the Kansas National Guard and Medal of Honor recipient.
“We feel vets paid the price,” and everything should be done to improve their quality of life, said Ballard, a member of the Patriot Project’s board of directors.
It’s also important to get veterans off pharmaceutical drugs, he said.
Ballard, a Navy hospital corpsman during the Vietnam War, was skeptical of the device at first, but after being treated at Novelli’s office, was a believer.
“I came here optimistic but reserved,” he said. “Now, I have an opinion.”
Though Magnecutical Health is teaming up with The Patriot Project for the campaign, Novelli emphasized that he has no financial ties to the company and received no kickbacks for using the device.
