PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder)
PTSD is a mental health condition that can occur when people experience something traumatic. Traumatic events like war, assault, disaster can lead to experiences of PTSD symptoms. A sample of the symptoms: heightened anxiety, difficulty coping, flashbacks, & nightmares.
Our bodies and minds are built to react to danger. We each have a fight or flight system (Sympathetic Nervous System) that casts a waterfall of activity in the body when we sense danger to help us survive. The effects of trauma and stress can linger even after the danger has passed.
If you are experiencing PTSD symptoms there are places for you to get help. There are also multitude of tools you can put in your toolbox to help you cope and work back towards a calmer life.
RAVI has been one of the tools that has helped some people with PTSD symptoms.
