PTSD

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) disability awards have sharply increased according to this morning’s Los Angeles Times front-page article by Alan Zarembo. Mr. Zarembo states that the number of veterans on the PTSD disability roles have nearly quintupled since 2000, with Vietnam and recent wars being the biggest drivers.

He further states that experiencing paranoia in crowds, nightmares and unrelenting flashbacks are textbook signs of PTSD. And he talks about growing concerns that “many veterans are exaggerating or lying to obtain benefits”.  Our military veterans have protected our freedom and are now suffering. I am not at all happy about any authority figure questioning the integrity of any veteran. After what the VA has done to many of our vets is it any surprise that perhaps a very small minority would resort to exaggeration in an attempt to get help?

And PTSD is not just war related. Victims of crime, domestic abuse, experiencing a major earthquake can trigger PTSD symptoms. Everyone with PTSD symptoms deserves help – should be able to receive treatment. Remember the Northridge earthquake? My family resided one mile from the epicenter and even though we’ve been through many earthquakes, that freaked us out no matter how ‘earthquake prepared’ we were. Our home suffered over $100,000 in damages and what did we get? An IRS audit!!!

Brainwave Entrainment in Abuse Victim Therapy

When brainwave entrainment is used in abuse victim therapy it is often reported that associated sleeping disorders are more easily overcome than when not utilized.

The DAVID Delight Pro with CES by Mind Alive is the light and sound machine many of my clients purchase for enhancing their professional therapeutic treatment. Here is one email I received from a client that reflects why:

“I just wanted to tell you how nice the David Pro is. I used it to sleep yesterday and I slept like a baby. I’m in court since 6 years now because I was raped by my adoptive father when I was younger and I never found good sleep since. It takes hours and often I need pills (seroquel). Now everything changed! Usually it takes hours for me to wake up (the reason why I work in the afternoon/evening) and I woke up by myself at 5 am refreshed. After breakfast, I used the energy and the good mood on David Pro. After, I had the energy that we have during the day when we are really awake. I really want to thank you for this product.”
If you are a victim of abuse and are seeking relief from sleepness nights please consider a light and sound mind machine as an adjunctive modality in your quest for a sense of release.
