Symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder will vary from person to person, but there are a few common generalities that will invariably apply. But first, let’s examine some of the common causes.
When faced with a frightening experience, it is natural for the body to instinctively react to get you to safety as fast as possible. To do that, all your body activity increases – blood pressure, heart rate, focus, etc. Once out of danger, everything will settle back to normal, in a healthy person.
Those who suffer with post traumatic stress disorder will not settle back to normal – their body remains in a state of alert, with everything ready to get you out of trouble again.
There can be various reasons for this:
the experience is endlessly repeated – such as in an abusive family/relationship
you cannot get out of the situation due to artificial reasons – such as a soldier at war or being trapped in a car after an accident
you repeatedly witness catastrophes – such as emergency personnel
any overwhelming life experience at any age
In most events, there is an inability (or perceived inability) to get out of the situation – you feel hopeless.
Immediately after the event or trauma, it is common to feel unsafe, to feel disconnected, to be frightened, to have bad dreams, to be unable to stop thinking about it. But this will settle in a short time, for most people.
For those with PTSD, these symptoms will not decrease in time; they may even worsen. Associated emotions will also arise, such as anger. There may be difficulty in sleeping, as the images come crowding in. Concentration may become difficult, as your body is on alert all the time; you may be jumpy, easily startled.
Eventually, you may move onto numbness and depression, even suicidal feelings. Before long pathology will develop. Family life becomes difficult if not impossible, but being abandoned just makes it worse.
What options are available to you if you do suffer with post traumatic stress disorder? Few people realise how effective homeopathy is at resolving any problem that is encountered in your life, whatever its nature. Not only is the effect of a well selected remedy immediate, it can be life transforming.
Not only that, but there are no side effects, no toxicity. Everything, both mental/emotional and physical, return to normal. In effect, you come out of the trauma, just as a healthy person does. But you can also experience a deeper awareness of life. So you can be taken to a healthier state; you can shift along the evolution of life, to a higher energetic state.
Homeopathy is a truly amazing system of health care. It covers all the systems – from mental and emotional, to physical. You could use homeopathy for all aspects of your health. Its effect can be deeply transformative.
