We Can Help Your Brain Break the Cycle of PTSD

Life with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can seem like an endless cycle of paranoia, agitation, and traumatic flashbacks. PTSD symptoms include being hyper-alert and never quite able to relax.

Fortunately, there are ways to break this seemingly interminable pattern. They are methods that we use every day to help people at Critical Thinking for Success!

Read on to discover how we free the brain from the shackles of PTSD!

What are the Root Causes of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?

PTSD occurs after a person has experienced prolonged periods of trauma and stress. As a result, the person’s body considers trauma the norm and constantly anticipates it. In other words, it never escapes fight, flight, or freeze mode.

The root PTSD causes within the body come from a nerve bundle on the base of the neck known as the stellate ganglion. PTSD occurs when this bundle gets stuck triggering a stress response, thus signaling danger even when there is none.

Who Will Typically Suffer from PTSD?

Contrary to popular belief, post-traumatic stress disorder does not only affect active military members and veterans. Still, it is very prevalent among them because of the traumatic nature of their service.

Many other types of people also suffer from PTSD, including first responders, emergency room staff, and people in car accidents. Many abused women, sexual assault victims, and victims of childhood trauma also develop the condition.

But no matter what prolonged trauma caused the condition, there is hope for people with PTSD! Our team at Critical Thinking for Success believes in the power of the brain to overcome the disorder.

How Can PTSD Treatments Train Your Brain?

Our clinic has developed revolutionary methods for combatting the effects of PTSD. These treatments are especially effective because they counter the disorder at its roots. We also work closely with clients to make sure the treatments work well for them.

Here is what our PTSD treatment regimen looks like in action:

  • Biofeedback Therapy – We use a device called a body LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System) to measure activity within the stellate ganglion and train it to regulate itself.
  • Success Coaching – Our success coaches come alongside clients to understand their struggles with PTSD and help them develop strategies to surmount the disorder.

What Results Can I Expect from These PTSD Treatments?

One of our favorite things about the treatments we’ve developed is how quickly they can help people. We have seen positive results as early as the first biofeedback session. However, outcomes will vary from person to person, with some taking a few weeks, others a few months.

Still, we never get tired of witnessing the sense of freedom our clients feel because of our work. They enjoy how relaxed they feel and how they can sleep peacefully again. And most importantly, they are free to get back to loving their lives!
