Two more days left of PTSD Awareness Month…What have we learned?
- ♦One thing we do know that has been proven in recent studies: Acupuncture can be an effective form of therapy for those suffering from PTSD..
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can originate from various causes ranging from aggression to violence or disasters.
Any situation causing emotional, physical or mental trauma can result in PTSD. The use of acupuncture for PTSD has been scientifically proven to show reduced anxiety levels and stress in individuals!
With such forms of alternative medicine treatments, it is easier for afflicted individuals to regain composure in daily life activities.
Typically acupuncture for PTSD is administered by stimulating specific auricular points in the body. These points of the body are responsible for controlling particular brain areas that help control nervous functioning as well as mitigate stress levels.
Many soldiers who have been victims of PTSD after violent wars are being treated with acupuncture to provide successful results. Recently, the Pentagon has been investigating the beneficial effects of acupuncture for PTSD on soldiers affected with this condition. As per findings from recent trials, it has been found that combat veterans were relieved of their symptoms and experienced reduced depression, as well as pain!! The improvements due to acupuncture were also found to be very rapid and significant.
