PTSD and the Hope of NAD Therapy

PTSD and the Hope of NAD Therapy

There are many misconceptions surrounding post traumatic stress disorder symptoms and those who suffer from it. Briefly, I want to explain what are some of the main post traumatic stress disorder symptoms, and clarify some of the biggest myths surrounding PTSD. Then explain how a treatment like NAD Therapy is proving beneficial for PTSD.PTSD and the Hope of NAD Therapy

Someone struggling with PTSD might experience Intrusion. It’s when the brain is flooded with painful or stressful memories of the a tragic event, and you re-experience the event all over again. Another main symptom is hyper-arousal. The sufferer may feel like they can never fully relax or that they’re angry or irritable all the time. Avoiding certain places, people or situations that might trigger remembering the tragic event or evoke those same feelings is also a symptoms. So are negative thoughts or feelings about the world and oneself, and feelings of withdrawal and dissociation.

Negative stigma is still one of the major barriers to those seeking help. Here are some of the top myths surrounding post traumatic stress disorder symptoms and sufferers:

  1. All PTSD sufferers are violent and dangerous. Being on edge, irritable, angry or easily startled does not automatically equate to violence. However, PTSD sufferers who also engaged in drinking or abusing substances do have a higher risk of violent behavior.
  2. PTSD is the outcome of something very awful and tragic happening. Not necessarily. Traumatic events are highly subjective. What is not traumatic for one person, could be for another. People’s brains react differently to situations, and we have no control over it.
  3. Unless there is a physical injury there’s no PTSD. This is also not true. In fact, PTSD is an injury. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Trauma’s impact doesn’t have to be an outward, visible one. PTSD affects the functioning of the brain and one’s mental health.
  4. Anyone who experiences a traumatic event will suffer from PTSD. This is not how it works. Not everyone experiences things in the same way. Some brains are able to adapt to the stresses of a situation more than others. For example, not all veterans come back home with PTSD.
  5. Getting help for PTSD will hurt my reputation and my career. If you are suffering, the only thing that will hurt you and your future is leaving your PTSD untreated.

NAD Therapy like ExecuCare’s NTR Brain Restoration, offers hope to those who suffer with PTSD because it supplies the brain with what it needs at its most basic, cellular level. PTSD causes the brain to deplete its chemicals known as neurotransmitters and leaves an imbalance. NAD Therapy creates an environment for the brain that allows it to reset, rebalance and return to proper functioning. This is proving to be very beneficial for those struggling with PTSD.
