PTSD Affects So Many
With so many traumatic events occurring in this day and age, it’s easy for one to have a mild case of PTSD balloon into a life-altering, debilitating case of PTSD. When ignored, PTSD can manifest into a beast of its own and cause potentially life-threatening scenarios to occur. An estimated 8% of Americans have PTSD at any given time and this number is only expected to grow with the large number of traumatic incidents occurring on a seemingly daily basis. With acupuncture for PTSD, we at Bee Cave Acupuncture & Nutrition treat the root of the problem through natural healing and don’t mask it with pharmaceuticals which can only be a band-aid solution for a real, physiological problem which affects so many.
Some PTSD Facts
An estimated 70% of adults experience a life-altering, traumatic event at least once in their life
With so many people experiencing these terrible, life-altering events and feeling as though they have no one to turn to most times, it’s more important than ever to seek help for your mental health. Without mental health, every other aspect of your life will be affected.
Women are twice as likely as men to develop PTSD
An estimated 1 out of 10 women will develop PTSD in their lives and this is nearly double the amount of men who will develop PTSD throughout their life.
Extreme Trauma Can Cause PTSD to Develop
When a traumatic event occurs, it sends signals to your brain of fear, panic, stress, and an overall sense of helplessness. This feeling, when recalled over and over in the affected individual’s memory, can actually change the brain’s chemistry and signal firing over time; all leading to extreme cases of depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
Always Being On Edge, Guarded, and Hyper-Aware
This sense of constant urgency can be the result of a personality change which is developed over time from the extreme trauma and negative energy being permeated throughout the affected individual’s body whenever they recall the life-altering experience they’ve encountered.
If the affected individual is triggered by certain sounds, smells, visuals, or anything else which can be a trigger related to the traumatic event, they may avoid all social activities out of fear of being sent back into a downwards spiral and reliving their traumatic experience.
How Acupuncture Helps PTSD
PTSD, in many cases, can be treated effectively with stimulating areas of the body which have lost blood flow, energies, and qi; resulting in those areas of the body becoming empty shells of what they used to be. This treatment, compounded with a healthy diet, exercise, and speaking to a qualified psychologist can truly make a fantastic change in one’s view of their own life and the world while promoting healing from within. Once the healing process begins, the body recognizes you’re trying to better your condition and will subsequently allow other areas of the body to heal as well. The beautiful thing about the human body is it’s always attempting to heal itself, as long as your provide the right environment for it to do so, it will heal successfully.
