Healing PTSD

PTSD Changes Brain Chemistry

Brain scan shows PTSD sufferers experience large amounts of cortisol inflammation, which impairs focus and mental performance, lowers sensitivity to pain, and regulation of emotions.

PTSD leads to the thinning of the prefrontal cortex, limiting cognitive behavior and decision-making skills.

The good news is that through relaxation therapies, addressing emotional triggers and avoiding external stressors it is possible to clear cortisol and return the beautiful brain to its natural blueprint for health and wellbeing.
