As a Pararescueman, I was well-trained in trauma and crisis medicine. What I learned throughout this journey is that treating symptoms and diseases is not health. Getting at root causes is how we are truly healed. You need to take responsibility and find doctors and practitioners who are committed to your overall health...mind, body and spirit. Roger Sparks
USAF Pararescueman, USMC Recon
Silver Star Recipient

After 25 years of deployments

His mission to heal his mind, body & spirit was just beginning

Join Roger Sparks as he learns what it takes to "sail home" to himself and his family.

Silver Star Recipient and Retired Master Sergeant Roger Sparks served within the military as both a Recon Marine and an Air Force Pararescueman for over 25 years. The physical and emotional toll of his career affected his body, mind and spirit to a degree he thought he would never recover. Through an introduction into the world of chiropractic, Roger pulled a thread that opened up a world of unparalleled healing modalities that would grant him a renewed sense of self. His experience cultivated a mission to spread healing across the world. We invite you to that same journey to regain your mental, physical and spiritual health.

In 50 years as a veteran advocate, I’ve never seen anything that shows the full nature of what veterans take on when they commit to protect our freedom and each other. Americans need to be shown the raw power of veterans giving body and soul as they live out the creed “No Vet Left Behind.” Theirs is an eloquent expression of what it means to be human.
