PTSD and its effects on everyday life

July 6, 2020 |

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a condition that is usually caused following the experience of a traumatic event. Those living with PTSD understand just how big of an impact this can have on your day to day life. The mental health condition can impact various different aspects of your lifestyle, significantly lowering the overall quality of life. This blog post covers PTSD symptoms, signs of PTSD, the effects of PTSD on a day to day life and how PTSD treatment can help you once again live a healthy and happy life. 

What is PTSD?

PTSD, also known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is a mental health condition that is caused by one or several traumatic experiences. Someone who lives with PTSD often relives the traumatic events through nightmares and flashbacks – experiencing extreme feelings of isolation, irritability and distress. 

What causes PTSD?

PTSD is often associated with soldiers who have returned from combat with severe flashbacks of combat. However, PTSD is much more common than many people think and can affect around 1 in every 3 people at some stage within their lives. 

Here are some causes of PTSD:

  • Traumatic events
  • Serious road collisions and accidents
  • War, fighting and combat
  • Violent assaults
  • Sexual assault
  • Muggings
  • Robberies
  • Serious health problems
  • Childbirth experiences

Signs of PTSD 

For those who think they are suffering from the trauma-related condition, PTSD signs can be categorised by three main types. They are, firstly, re-experiencing the trauma through recollections and intrusive flashbacks of the event – including night terrors and nightmares. A second PTSD sign is emotional numbness with no fluctuations in feelings or energy.

Whilst the final PTSD sign surrounds social isolation; avoiding certain places, people, and activities that can remind you of the trauma. 

PTSD symptoms

There are various symptoms of PTSD that any individual suffering from the condition can feel. It’s important to remember that every case of PTSD is different, but the symptoms can be as follows: 

  • Extreme physical reactions to reminders of trauma – sweating, nausea, increased heart rate
  • Intense feelings of distress over a tragic event 
  • Invasive memories that are upsetting 
  • Intense flashbacks 
  • Anxiety that a traumatic event could happen again
  • Nightmares and night terrors
  • Loss of interest in life, things you once loved, daily activities
  • Emotional numbness
  • Detachment from relationships
  • Negative outlook and thoughts 
  • Difficulty remembering important aspects of a traumatic event

PTSD Treatment through Sonic Reset Therapy®

Treatment for PTSD can be carried out in a number of ways. Even in severe cases that have taken years to develop, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. PTSD treatments usually require medication, cognitive behavioural therapy, or a combination of both. This can take long periods of time, effort and money to find the help you need. 

We are here to tell you there’s another alternative PTSD treatment that is completely unique with proven results in treating a number of different conditions. This includes mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, stress, OCD and more. This is known as Sonic Reset Therapy (SRT) and it involves resetting negative thoughts and feelings that are stored in the brain for an overall healthier and happier life. 

Sonic Reset Therapy® for PTSD – how does it work? 

Sonic Reset Therapy® uses carefully calibrated tones to activate negative neural networks within your mind. Once you have reached the desired state, a ‘reset tone’ then plays over the sounds to gently reduce the strength of the problem, memories and feelings surrounding it. That’s why SRT is the perfect PTSD treatment that requires less time, effort and money than other treatments for PTSD. 

Whatever the problematic thoughts, feelings or memories are that you’re working on for the PTSD therapy – think of them as a ‘target’ that you are trying to remove. Although it can be hard to think about the traumatic event that led you to feel the way you do – just one session can have a significant impact on your ability to confront your feelings of discomfort. The more vivid the target is, the better, and this can be achieved by any means necessary.
