At Sunflower Wellness Retreat in Kansas each June, we proudly participate in the national effort to raise awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This effort culminates on June 27th, which is PTSD Awareness Day. Although PTSD is usually associated with war combat, known as “shell-shock,” this disorder can develop in anyone who has witnessed or experienced a traumatic event, ranging from an assault to a car accident.
In recent years, more evidence-based therapy approaches are being widely recognized and used to treat those who suffer from PTSD. Also, there is a highly effective rate of those who can heal from the symptoms of this disorder through some form of trauma treatment.
At Sunflower Wellness Retreat, we provide personalized care through our trauma therapy programs to those who wish to no longer fight the battles of this disorder alone. To find out more about trauma therapy we offer, visit our website or call us at 855.730.8825.
As we learn more about PTSD and its effects, it is important to know how it affects the brain and the overall health of the person who has been diagnosed. PTSD causes major biochemical changes in the brain that are not detected in other psychiatric disorders. The people who develop this disorder after a traumatic event have the potential to initiate an increase to the fight-or-flight response of survival.
Some of the symptoms of this disorder are as listed below:
- An extreme discomfort or panic attack when reminded of the traumatic event
- Intrusive thoughts or imagery
- Extreme alertness known as hypervigilance
- Vivid night terrors
There are physical symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder too, such as migraines, racing heart, or nausea. It is important to know these symptoms because many cases of PTSD go undiagnosed. Therefore, for the health of yourself or someone you care about, raising awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder is a crucial step in helping those affected.
PTSD Awareness Month 2021
Each year, PTSD Awareness Month, along with PTSD Awareness Day, further educates and shares information about this disorder. The purpose behind these events is to let anyone experiencing any of these symptoms know that they can reach out and seek the help they need to heal. No one should struggle alone, and it is of utmost urgency to reach out now if you or a loved one has been experiencing any of the signs or symptoms associated with PTSD.
