Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Treatment
Post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD as it is commonly referred is a condition that arises when a person witnesses something scary. The individual may get away from the troublesome state, but the memories remain constant. This can set off a spate of anxiety attacks when the person is confronted with a trigger. The brain is unable to decipher the extent of the damage and memories or emotions can cause the person to keep on reliving the problem without being able to move on with her or his life.
General Symptoms of PTSD
- A pattern where the person remains frozen in time which borders on extreme fear.
- Insomnia resulting in physiological conditions taking root like hypertension, stress, and other conditions.
- Sadness, anger, worry, tension, fear, feeling on edge, anxiety, frustration, lack of focus on anything other than the issue and confusion are some of the symptoms.
- A lack of interest in eating, limited exposure to the outside world, living in a closed environment, joint stiffness and other problems.
Why Help is Necessary
When the condition does not disappear after a couple of weeks or months, the patient will need counseling and anti-depressants. Unfortunately, if the person cannot get past the stage, s/he will need further assistance and surprisingly acupuncture works rather well in this sphere. One can refer to this alternative science because it affects a change in the mindset of the person. Sterilized needles are placed in certain points that help in relaxing the patient as the autonomous nervous system is calmed. He will be able to sleep, any tension in the body is released and the fear psychosis is slowly eradicated.
Ancient Chinese Treatment to the Rescue
Living in fear because of an incident should not paralyze the mind or body of a person. By using this ancient Chinese treatment, the neural pathways of the system are strengthened to ensure that there is a robust system in play for the body and the mind. Auricular acupuncture is quite a profound way to treat post-traumatic stress disorder. The needles are placed in a variety of touch points in the ear, which is connected and supplied, by a number of blood vessels and nerves to the body. This ensures that acupuncture as a form of science, physical therapy, and alternative medication changes the behavioral and cognitive patterns in the brain. Flashbacks are reduced, sleep apnea along with pain done away with, headaches, migraines and any worries are slowly released.
