PTSD & Hope

Posted On Sep 10, 2016

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder "PTSD" may be a relatively new diagnosis (formally researched, understood, and named after the Vietnam War) but humans have been struggling with the after effects of scary and traumatic events throughout human history.  Just a few decades ago the main treatment was talk therapy, mainly Psychodynamic and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.  Fortunately, in the last couple decades, a lot of research and experience with PTSD has shown that there are several approaches that can heal PTSD.  From Art Therapy to Animal Assisted Therapy, and from Cognitive Behavioral to EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), there is a high probability a person struggling with PTSD can heal, move on, and have a "normal" or even exceptional life (one without flashbacks, emotional numbing or exaggerated emotional reactions, intrusive thoughts or images, and inappropriate guilt).  

I have spoken with some people who believe PTSD is a lifelong illness.  If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, please get in contact with a professional who has been trained and experience healing PTSD.  PTSD does not have to be a lifetime, or even a long-term, struggle.  Healing can happen, lives can be reclaimed.  Lives without PTSD are much more enjoyable and productive.  Someone who has suffered PTSD and then healed and learned to thrive, has enormous potential to live a better life, or help others - because of the lessons learned, growth, and strength that replaces PTSD.

Mindful Health is an important aspect of human health. I believe I don't succeed unless you succeed. I am half of Mindful Health Advantage; Dr. Roberts & I are here to help you heal, grow, and develop into the person you would like/want to be - to develop/construct a life you will be proud to have lived. We humans live in a very complex, stressful time in our history. It is often very difficult to know what to do, or how to heal. Know that there are ways to deal well with stress, loss, and changes in life. I have found that it is very important to develop positive relationships with yourself, family, other people, and ideally, the whole world, and universe. Are you struggling? We have witnessed people make amazing progress and changes in their lives, and we are honored to be a part of that growth. I am sure our brain, being, and spirit have more potential than most of us can fathom. I am very thankful that I am not "stuck" in a job. I have found my avocation and calling. May I help you? . I resonate with the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson: The best way to predict the future is to create it. . We are setting up a Wednesday Mindfulness group over the lunch hour. If interested, please call and get details, or reserve a spot.
