Homeopathic Treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Guest Post Written by Dr. Navneet Bidani (The Author)
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has been an officially recognized illness since 1980 and it may be defined as the development of significant anxiety, fear, helplessness and horror after exposure (experienced or witness) to trauma, defined as an event associated with either actual or threatened death or injury to oneself or another. Individuals experience associated symptoms of detachment and loss of emotional responsivity. The patient may feel de-personalized and unable to recall specific aspects of the trauma, though typically it is re-experienced through intrusions in thoughts, dreams, or flashbacks, particularly when cues of the original event are present.
