Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)


What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?

It’s 100% natural to feel frightened during and after a traumatic experience. When you experience a life-threatening event, your body’s fear network is running and your flight-or-fight response is activated. After the fact, you will experience a broad range of emotions, but those whose symptoms don’t go away may be diagnosed with PTSD. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is the result of exposure to a traumatic event or occurrence, either through personally experiencing the event or having witnessed it. Symptoms of PTSD can occur months or years after the event. PTSD is associated with dysfunction stress hormones and changes to brain function and structure.

How we can help?

At Elumind, we believe in an integrative approach is a path to healing the root of the disorder. Because PTSD is a brain-based disorder that affects brain function and brainwave regulation, you will begin the healing process with the following: Therapeutic Assessment and an advanced Brain Mapping Neurofeedback therapy to help eliminate symptoms of hyperarousal, flashback memories, panic attacks, anxiety, and depression. Interpersonal Psychotherapy focuses on how you perceive the event and how you can minimize emotional and mental distress. EMDR Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, a technique that leverages bilateral sensory input of side to side eye movements to help you reprocess the disruptive thoughts and memories of your trauma. TMS Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a clinically proven, safe form of non-invasive neuromodulation therapy that changes the electrical activity in the targeted area of the brain. Research has shown that TMS treatments can suppress or blunt the overactive orbitofrontal cortex and relieve PTSD symptoms.
