How To Resolve Your PTSD MST

Brain Science Connects Emotional-Vibrational Frequency

to heal PTSD, MST

Brain Fitness or PTSD — What is Your Choice?

Dear Friends,

Are you aware how easy it has become to measure the brain activity that signals your fear, anxiety and then again pleasurable thoughts of love and joy?

For decades medical doctors have used digital machines to test, diagnose, and monitor the status of your physical health. Pharmaceutical laboratories have been preoccupied to develop pills for any kind of condition. Surgeries have become increasingly sophisticated. More and more frequently, it has been discovered that as a result, you might develop an emotional trauma. It is not new to measure the electric frequencies of your brain while you experience panic states or other symptoms of PTSD, Only as of late, it has been proven that the neural chemistry of the brain responds extremely well to the higher level frequencies of emotional signals like love, harmony, peace.

 

These test results and their applications in latest brain fitness programs confirm that trauma and post-traumatic stress as well as military rape and any other emotional trauma, whether they occurred yesterday or decades ago, can be healed through changing your mindset. Brain fitness or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) — what is your choice?

 

Now let me analyze the concept of raising your brain frequencies from low-level to high-level frequencies in Hz. Depression, suicidal thoughts, hate, anger are low frequency. Higher frequency feelings are harmony and love. You can look at detailed graphs how to reach inner fulfillment through self-actualization on my Facebook.com/page/Healing-PTSD-Trauma-Universal-Vibrational-Therapy.

 

In our world it is quite normal for the mass media to report upsetting news about violence non-stop. Your brain registers these news as low-level frequency. As a result you may become more and more angry about what’s happening. It may occur just at a point when you seemed to have your own emotional trauma under control. However, now you feel completely out of balance. Of course, you blame your PTSD, while everybody else around you may also be flooded with low-level frequency feelings about latest traumatic events in this chaotic world. So you may not be able to count on them to help you out.

 

Your issue is how to counterbalance the low-frequency vibrations through loving harmonious ones. If you believe you can make it on your own, by all means give it a try. Any kind of self-reflection, spiritual practice, like prayers, meditation, yoga, may give you a head start. If you are lucky, it may suffice. However, usually more is involved to resolve your deficit in high-level frequency vibrations. I found it out for myself. That’s how the Universal Vibrational Therapy TM came about in 1992. I distilled it to save you the years of not feeling complete within yourself. I named the CDset: “Healing PTSD Trauma”. It is an efficient, targeted method to transmute the vibrational components of emotional trauma and its symptoms and for you to rediscover harmony and joy. The CDset is unique. It turned my customers’ lives around to achieve a great level of well-being.

 

However, let me caution you: it comes with one responsibility, viz. to sustain the high-level vibrational frequency through an easy, brief daily regime of the Universal Vibrations. From then on, you are on your own with the tools that afford you to enjoy improved relationships, to pursue your purpose in life and to manifest your visions and dreams.

Brain Research Confirms PTSD Can Be Healed

Train Your Neuroplastic Brain

To Heal Your Trauma, to Rewire Your

Electric Frequency (Hz) from Fear to Love

Latest astounding advancements in neuroplasticity of the human brain reconfirm the validity of the Universal Vibrational Therapy TM and its distilled version, the CDset for “Healing PTSD Trauma”. It may take decades until recent discoveries reach main stream. By then, neuroscientists may have reached more advanced conclusions about the true nature of the innate human potential. Healing methods may assume an even faster speed in vibrational energy.

 

Many of you, veterans, have been suffering from your invisible wounds ever since you have returned home from war. You have become bitter that treatment of your PTSD, PTS has not shown the results in healing that you so richly deserved after having sacrificed your health in war. My heart goes out for you. Yes, physical and emotional treatment methods have been and are still lagging behind scientific discoveries. It shows the severe shortcoming of an imperfect world where specialization has become the norm. In the past this lack of knowledge could not have been bridged through the best Western healthcare system, Veterans Hospitals or government. It may be the hardest pill for you to swallow; yet, it is essential for you to accept this fact so you can move on to your own healing.

 

You may be aware of research which has studied the damage to the human brain rattling around during the blast pressure waves of artillery, IED’s etc. You may also have come across test results which show how much effort has been put into the design of a 100% protective helmet to protect soldiers in combat. Usually, soldiers with PTSD have been exposed to rattled brains durings blast waves. So if anybody were to assume that a soldier is weak because he suffers from PTSD has no idea of the variables of warfare. Instead of asking why did it happen, and why have I not been healed so far, you may want to learn how to master your life in unexpected ways.

 

By the way, your flashbacks, nightmares, and other triggers were originally only the warning signals of your energy sytem. The symptoms tend to be reinforced, since your energy system has not been fully recharged. Once your vibrational energies have been replenished, your subconscious will relay the message to all parts of your body. Your whole system will calm down. Neuroscientists have researched and documented exactly the interplay between different parts of your brain when the electric frequencies (in Hz) are changed from ‘fear’ to ‘love’.

 

Give yourself permission to stop punishing yourself for the shortcomings of the world around you. It is not too late to decide to conquer your post-traumatic stress. Summon the fighter spirit in you that knew his mission was to return from war alive. Do you recall your dreams and visions back then? Reflect upon them and determine how to bring them back to life. What can you do to change the frequencies from ‘fear’ to ‘love’ and once accomplished, how can you sustain the gains?

 

While I understand that my solution is not for everybody, it does work. If you are determined to say good-bye to your emotional trauma and its symptoms and you opt for a speedy rewiring of your electric circuitry, then my CDset “Healing PTSD Trauma” is the unique method for you, while the second component ‘Restabilize Your Energy’ will teach you the brief daily regime to sustain the gains achieved in the midst of disharmonious energies in your daily life.

Healing PTSD as a Couple

Non-Military Spouses develop PTSD Symptoms similar to Husbands

By War Trauma Survivor Christel B. D’Agostino, MSW, LCSW-R, CtH

Creator of Universal Vibrational Therapy TM

 

Finally, the word seems to be getting out in the mass media that, surprisingly enough, non-military spouses develop symptoms of post-traumatic stress (PTSD) after their husbands’ return from deployment. Rather shocked, reporters have been questioning how could spouses who have not fought overseas develop symptoms of post-combat stress (PTSD) similar to their husbands?

It needs to be pointed out that the emotional toll on spouses during their husbands’ deployment tends to be underestimated–not only by husbands, but by the public at large. During the deployment, spouses have to fight their own inner battles, to suppress the fear whether their husbands will return alive.

Let me mention one example: When her husband finally returned back home, overjoyed, the spouse sighed with relief. Then, she discovered that he seemed preoccupied and appeared distant. She realized he was no longer the man she fell in love with. She tried her very best, poured all her love into the relationship. Despite her attempts, it did not work. Why was he so removed, drove recklessly, drank too much?

The fear for her own life set in one night. Screaming on top of his lungs, seemingly back in the war zone, her husband mistook her for the enemy. She barely escaped his firm grip and locked herself in the bathroom. From then on, she was on high alert too. She pressured her husband to seek treatment in order to resolve his trauma and heal his symptoms of PTSD. The painstaking road to healing PTSD began. Angry uncontrolled outbursts, panic, depression threatened to tear the relationship apart.

This seemingly never ending fight with PTSD tends to occur when the war energies, brought back home, are not being resolved.

Considering the enormous emotional toll that is demanded by spouses during and after deployment, I have been recommending to couples to listen to the “Healing PTSD Trauma” CDset together in the privacy of their home. It will facilitate inner bonding between the couple and is intended to lead to a dialogue while healing their trauma and their similar symptoms of PTSD. The energies of war will be transmuted. Their vibrational energies will be balanced. Their deep-seated feelings will be healed. A solid foundation will have been formed to rebuild their relationship. In addition, the wonderful tool “Restabilize Your Energy” will give the couple the opportunity to transmute any new disharmonious energies from family, friends, the outside world on a daily basis. It only takes a few minutes, however, through mutual support, it will fortify the inner bond between spouses even more.

If, as a couple, you are committed to healing PTSD, to improve the quality of your life, and be the best you can be in your loving relationship, then, the CDset “Healing PTSD Trauma” is a dream come true.

Unique PTSD Healing Method

Vibrational Energy Therapy

“Healing PTSD Trauma”

Resolves Deep-Seated Wounds

Christel B. D’Agostino, MSW, LCSW-R, CtH
War Trauma Survivor,
Creator of the Universal Vibrational Therapy TM

Increasing public awareness about PTSD is important. It is equally important to accept that healing from post-traumatic stress (PTSD) is within your reach, if you so desire. The belief that there is no cure for post-traumatic stress (PTSD) is outdated. As many benefits as traditional therapeutic methods have, they do not reach the inner core of PTSD. Energy therapy does.

Talking therapy, like CBT and any variation thereof, basically help you to become aware that your life is no longer at risk and teach you coping mechanisms, e.g. resilience, ego-strengthening techniques, etc. First, you may feel relieved, but then you realize that your invisible wound and many of the feelings linked to it are still within you. You start to wonder will you ever own yourself again? Once you have arrived at this point, it is time to search for a different solution. Look no further. My Universal Vibrational Therapy TM will transmute the energies of your symptoms of PTSD according to a disciplined protocol.

You will find more details further down, but first I want you to consider that not only veterans are suffering from the invisible wound of PTSD. While the nature of the trauma may be vastly different for civilians, the inner war is not. Too many individuals have been misdiagnosed and been battling PTSD for decades. It is unfortunate that wars, sacrifice of lives and health of our veterans had to become the eye-opener for many doctors and mental health practitioners to realize that their civilian patients had been exhibiting symptoms of PTSD. I would like to mention that my CDset “Healing PTSD Trauma” has healed veterans and civilians alike from their traumas and symptoms of post-traumatic stress (PTSD).

My Universal Vibrational Therapy TM has the unique advantage that it transmutes the trauma and its symptoms of PTSD through a disciplined method. Once the trauma has been transmuted through an energetic shift, it will feel like a big burden has been lifted from your shoulders. You will feel lighter and at peace within yourself. From then on, you will cleanse your vibrational field through a daily brief regime from any new energy disrupters which may have originated within your family, work situation, community, mass media, etc. The brief regime “Restabilize Your Energy” will ensure that your vibrational energy will sustain you from then on.

If you so desire, healing from post-traumatic stress (PTSD) is within reach. Would it not be wonderful to own yourself again? To restart your life on a completely new level, with a commitment to yourself to sustain your higher level of being, to feel love in your heart again, clarity of mind and peace at your core? Are you ready to treat yourself to a new level of well-being? “Healing PTSD Trauma” on CD is waiting for you.

PTSD: To Conquer or to Deal With It


Christel B. D’Agostino, MSW, L-CSW-R, CtH
Trauma Expert, War Trauma Survivor

PTSD: What do you expect from yourself –
To Conquer your PTSD or to Deal with it?
What is Your Choice?

heart-fieldYou have returned home from combat. After a few weeks you may start having flashbacks, or become hypervigilant with uncontrollable outbursts of rage. You may experience nightmares or a combination of all of these symptoms or even others. In the waiting room at the VA you get a chance to listen in on the conversations of other vets. You learn that some of them have been coming here for years, even decades, for their medication to support their mental and/or physical health. What about therapy you ask? It has not always worked.

Often it appeared as if their trauma treatment were successful, yet symptoms returned when least expected. You get a rundown of the different kinds of therapies which are being used at the different VA Hospitals. You hear that the VA has been sponsoring research in hopes to find more effective treatment methods than the ones prevalent right now. Finally, it is your turn. After the usual routine of test batteries and consultation, it turns out that your diagnosis is PTSD. Your treatment of short-term exposure therapy combined with cognitive-behavioral therapy is to start in a few weeks. A prescription is handed to you.

What is PTSD?

The American Psychiatric Association has classified post-traumatic stress (PTSD) as a mental disorder in their DSM-IV edition. It intends to change the diagnosis for veterans to post-combat stress in their next edition. In general, PTSD has been considered as a severe anxiety disorder, caused by exposure to a potentially life-threatening event. Looking at PTSD from a scientific viewpoint, you may start to wonder whether it might need to be reclassified as an energy disorder. Allow me to explain my viewpoint.

Scientists have long recognized that each cell in our physical body is supported by intricate systems of energy, i.e. the energy body.. Already in 1931 Nobel Prize-winner Otto Warburg measured tiny electronic voltages in cells. From then on, research continued with astounding results. The functioning of organs, e.g. kidneys or liver, has been measured by the different frequencies these tiny electromagnetic impulses emit. Not so long ago, a special version of the MRI has been designed to measure the energetic health of individuals diagnosed with blast-induced TBI and PTSD.

Aside from the energetic structures within the physical body, there is also a broad protective layer, the energy field, around the body, with the function to protect the energy body, and the other bodies (i.e. mental, emotional, physical, spiritual) from invasion of hostile energies. On the battlefield this protective energy field is overpowered by the onslaught of powerful hostile energy waves, (i.e. blasts of IEDs). These hostile energies proceed to invade the energy body. The energy body then alarms the other bodies in a chain reaction. According to Integrative Medicine the body which was attacked first, needs to be healed first. In this case, the energy body has been violated first. Therefore, it needs to be healed first. Only then, healing the other bodies fully will succeed.

While the invasion of our energy body and the chain reaction to alarm the other bodies occurs, the only message which our conscious awareness understands is when the PTSD symptoms set in. It is the signal to heal the compromised energy body, to take action to heal and strengthen it. Only then, it can re-assume its natural role to protect the physical body and to prevent further harm. To conclude:

PTSD is the signal of the energy body, to alarm all other systems that the energy body has been invaded. Action needs to be taken to heal the energy body, to strengthen it again so it can re-assume its natural role to protect the whole body and to prevent further harm to the whole system.

 

What is the unique advantage of energy therapy?

 

Energy therapy does not desensitize you to suppress your feelings. On the contrary, once the traumatic event and its symptoms have been transmuted through an energetic shift in a very gentle fashion, without having to relive the trauma, you will rediscover the richness of your inner self. The Universal Vibrational Therapy TM is the energy therapy which offers you in-depth healing of any emotional trauma which caused your symptoms of post-combat stress. I created it in 1992 to heal my own war trauma. It has withstood the test of time. I have been trauma-free for over twenty years now. The Universal Vibrational Therapy TM has become the foundation of “Healing PTSD Trauma”. which I have developed with you, Veterans, in mind so you can listen to my CD set and experience the energetic shift of having the roots of your emotional trauma transmuted in the privacy of your home. Any secondary symptoms like depression are transmuted as well. Once your energetic health is restored, you want to maintain it through a brief daily routine to fight off any new invasive energies, which easily bombard each and every one in chaotic times.

Will you assume the responsibility for your trauma treatment and conquer your PTSD through the Universal Vibrational Therapy TM? You will be free to rediscover your inner self, create a rich life and follow your dreams and visions.

I would like to emphasize that the CDset is not only for veterans returning from the battlefield, but also for civilians either diagnosed with PTSD or any other trauma, e.g. mobbing, i.e. harassment at the workplace/school, invasive surgeries, sexual assault, childhood trauma, ancestral trauma, to name a few.

The CD set “Healing PTSD Trauma” and “Restabilize Your Energy” is based on the energetic shift of the Universal Vibrational Therapy TM to transmute the energies of any present or prior emotional trauma, the cause of your post-combat stress. While listening to the CD, your natural resilience will re-emerge, clarity of thought will be restored. Shame and guilt will be transmuted , as well as symptoms of anxiety and depression. The Success Strategies will encourage you to develop a certain expertise about your own energy body. Guidelines on how to erase old unwanted behavior patterns are included. “Restabilize Your Energy” serves as a reminder to maintain your energy field at all times in prime condition. The CD set “Healing PTSD Trauma” and “Restabilize Your Energy” will empower you to fulfill your dreams and visions.

British PTSD Study flawed

ptsd

British/US PTSD Study Flawed

Different Systems – Different Outcomes

“Healing PTSD Trauma” on CD Your Solution

Christel B. D’Agostino, MSW, LCSW-R, CtH

Before I tell you about this flawed study, let me reassure you that “Healing PTSD Trauma” on CD is the solution for your PTSD/Trauma.
Everybody who supports our troops and veterans may have been upset about the article: “The indivisible division: US soldiers are seven times as likely as UK troops to develop post-traumatic stress” by Ethan Watters, April 8, 2011 in the Independent.co.uk. Reading this headline, I started to wonder. How could the result of different evaluation systems be compared? Little attention seems to have been paid to this fact.
Not only the Brits, but some of the other European countries too, do not agree with the DSM-IV definition and interpretation of post-traumatic stress (PTSD) for war trauma/combat stress and have adopted their own way to deal with it.
How can results be compared when  systems and variables differ?

Let’s first have a look at the variables, e.g. number of deployments, dwell time, dates of collecting research data. Let’s assume that exposure to ‘front line’ events was controlled (though we know that it  can hardly be.)

The British Medical Journal reported that deployments longer than six or seven months are associated with an increased risk of PTSD, in particular when deployment is extended over 13 months. It was mentioned that no deployment should be longer than 12 months in every 36 months.

In contrast our soldiers have more than 12 months of deployment and only one year dwell time.

Then, of course the number of deployments should be the  same, as well as the degree of stressed/conflictual home situations.

Once discharged six months after deployment, British troops are no longer part of the military health care system and are not included in research, even though severe concerns have been raised that mental health problems in veterans may remain hidden until after discharge.
Interpreting the above variables by themselves, it seems very apparent that the heavier burden is shouldered by the American warrior.

Now let’s move on to the diagnosis of PTSD itself:

The Independent .co.uk, “The Betrayal of British Fighting Men & Women”, 3/11/2007, states a service man’s form should never state: “post-traumatic stress disorder”.  It explains how the DSM-IV diagnosis is being handled and that the diagnosis of PTSD is usually only given to those individuals which do not exhibit signs of alcohol or drug abuse, depression, anxiety, neurosis, schizophrenia, adjustment disorder or any other mental condition. No consideration is given to the fact that the other symptoms may camouflage underlying post-traumatic stress (PTSD). Any mental health professional in Britain will adhere to the British interpretation of the DSM-IV diagnosis. In addition, the research was based on the PC-PTSD. This form does not include any potentially traumatic events and interviews. The CES (Combat Exposure Scale) does.

In Watter’s article there also seems to be a disconnect from earlier published psychological research studies, some of them are mentioned at my http://www.healingptsdtrauma.com. If you read some of my blogs you will understand that the historians’ speculation that Vietnam vets “succumbed to cultural expectations of developing PTSD” is a speculation. Vietnam veterans, like so many other vets from wars before, tended to suffer in silence.The fact that Vietnam veterans’ disability claims doubled between 1999 and 2004 validates the fact that, even if camouflaged as resilience, war trauma had resurfaced decades later.

Patrick Bracken of Bradford University’s Dept of Health Studies argues that  “in most Western societies there has been a move away from religious and other belief systems”. This is certainly correct for Europe but not for the United States.
To even suggest that the U.S. culture expects their vets to return with PTSD appears to me as another disconnect.

In contrast to the British research conducted by Neil Greenberg of the Academic Centre for Defence Mental Health at King’s College, London, I want to point to an excellent critical review which deals with the methodological and conceptual factors which may account for differences in prevalence rates across the globe: “Prevalence Estimates of Combat-Related PTSD: A Critical Review” Australian New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry, 2010 January: 44(1) 4-19.

Having dispelled the validity of the King’s College research,  allow me to end this blog by pointing out:

There is no need to suffer from PTSD or to worry that one or the other symptom might mean that PTSD is sneaking up on you. Listen to my CD set “Healing PTSD Trauma”. It resolves any present and past trauma, through an energetic shift of the Universal Vibrational Therapy ™ which I had created in 1992 to conquer my trauma.  “Healing PTSD Trauma” together with “Restabilize Your Energy”, on CD is the accelerated, easy and safe solution to resolve your post-traumatic stress (PTSD), while Success Strategies inspire you to fulfill your visions and dreams.

Help for Homeless Vets

ptsd

Problem-Solving Training thru PAIRS

Resolving PTSD/Trauma Through

Healing PTSD Trauma” on CD

Christel B. D’Agostino, MSW. LCSW-R, CtH

Homeless veterans are facing multiple problems. Military may return home unprepared to cope with PTSD and then to top it off, face financial and communication problems with their loved ones. PAIRS has developed a unique program to help the military and their families develop problem-solving and communication skills to strengthen family life to ensure veterans will not end up alone and homeless. PAIRS has been doing an excellent job to teach veterans and their families how to solve their problems of daily living, however, it does not include therapeutic intervention for post-traumatic stress (PTSD). This is where “Healing PTSD Trauma” on CD fills the gap and provides the effective solution to heal PTSD.

Nearly 131,000 veterans are homeless on any given night. Most of them are suffering from post-traumatic stress (PTSD). PTSD can be resolved in an accelerated fashion through my “Healing PTSD Trauma” on CD. It is the solution for present and past emotional trauma, no matter how it occurred, whether while deployed, or in a flood, fire, or accident, exposed to criminal violence, sexual abuse or any other life threatening event. While listening to “Healing PTSD Trauma” the symptoms of post-traumatic stress (PTSD) will be transmuted.

Now let me return to the nearly 131,000 veterans which are homeless on any given night. Nearly twice as many are estimated to be homeless over the course of the year. The total would be over 262,000 veterans homeless. The data was provided by Kelly Kent, Sr. Program Manager of Strategic Partnerships at the Corporation for Supportive Housing.

Veterans account for one third of the men that are homeless. Many of them are chronically homeless.

These are the men that have fallen between the cracks of the system, presumably without the safety net of disability to rely on. These are the veterans that have put their lives on the line in patriotic duty.

At times, unprepared for the responsibilities of civilian life, after deployment, suddenly a dual crisis may set in. One is caused by having to process events which happened overseas, possibly PTSD. The other is caused by feeling stuck and ill-prepared to face the responsibilities of life back home.

Stress and anxiety may set in about financial struggles, mortgage payments, credit card debt and insufficient budgeting skills.

Before deployment deeply in love, couples may experience a change in their relationship as time moves on. The partner who returns from deployment may not be the same anymore. Not each spouse is willing or able to live with a partner suffering from PTSD or physical disability.

Let us assume for a moment that the only issues a young couple faces are budgeting skills, relationship and communication skills. PAIRS has been offering an easy solution.The program of PAIRS is geared to very low income singles and couples. The emphasis is to improve communication skills, problem solving and emotional understanding among couples. 93% of the participants showed sustained improvements in resolving conflicts and overall relationship satisfaction. Looking at the PAIRS program, the mission is clear: Once individuals learn to resolve conflicts in all areas of life, they will also be able to maintain homes, families and relationships.

Now let us return to the second issue: To resolve post-traumatic stress (PTSD) of veterans in an effcient way. This is where “Healing PTSD Traumaon CD comes in. It resolves any present and past emotional trauma and transmutes the symptoms of post-traumatic stress (PTSD) through an energetic shift of the Universal Vibrational Therapy™ in an accelerated fashion. It is unique, gentle and safe.

Healing PTSD Trauma” on CD, together with the Companion CD “Restabilize Your Energy” and “Success Strategies” to inspire wanted behavior change is your effective solution to winning your life back, to owning yourself again

PTSD – Afraid to Burn Alive?

ptsd trauma

Caught in Flames – Physical & Emotional Trauma

Healing PTSD Trauma” Will Heal Your Emotions

Christel B. D’Agostino, MSW. LCSW-R, CtH

Healing PTSD Trauma” on CD resolves your post-traumatic stress (PTSD) and heals your emotions after your trauma. Yet, when caught in flames and suffering from sheer intolerable pain of second and third degree burns, all you yearn for is relief from the heat exuding from your traumatized body.

Exposure therapy has been attempted to help burn victims and PTSD patients desensitize from having been caught in a fire. However, instead of calming and soothing the physical pain, therapists witnessed how the patients were heating up even more so while exposed to the virtual reality of the usual PTSD exposure therapy scenario.

Prof. Hunter Hoffman had the ingenious idea that, if the patients’ burning flesh could be cooled down, patients might experience less discomfort and develop less anxiety and less reinforcement of their trauma while waiting for their dressing to be changed in the treatment room.

Prof. Hoffman and a few others created a unique virtual reality game: a snowball fight which cooled his patients flesh and took their minds off the pain of treatment. Patients put on helmets and noise-canceling headphones and emerged themselves into the Snow World to throw snowballs at snowmen, penguins, igloos and mammoths.

Prof. Hoffman’s idea worked: patients acknowledged that the video game had a cooling effect on their flesh and they felt calmer about treatment.

It is great that burn patients are getting an icy distraction from their physical pain in some trauma centers. If aside from the Snow World video, burn victims feel  the need to resolve their emotional trauma of being engulfed in flames,  “Healing PTSD Trauma” on CD offers a gentle, safe method to neutralizing the energies of  trauma, the fear of fire.

‘Healing PTSD Trauma’ for Military Wives

Military Wives Secondary PTSD

Caused by Daily Fears

Deployed Husband may not Come Home

Christel B. D’Agostino, MSW, LCSW-R, CtH

At the 2011 Military Health Conference it was pointed out that military spouses deserve more emotional support than they have been getting through mass media and from society. I want you to know Military Spouses ‘Healing PTSD Trauma’ is there for you too.

At the opening of the 2011 Military Health Conference, Deborah Mullen, the wife of Navy Admin. Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke about the challenges military wives can be facing and what the military medical system can do for its service members’ spouses and children. It has become more obvious recently that military wives are often facing the same amount of post-traumatic stress (PTSD) as their husbands and may be hesitant to seek treatment for secondary PTSD, out of concern that it may tarnish their husband’s career chances.

One area of concern is the time it takes to process the disability evaluation forms. Since 2007 waiting time has been reduced from 500 days to about 180 days. This time span is still unbearably long for the servicemen and women and their families. Clifford L. Stanley, Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, pointed out that the disability evaluation system needs to be improved to the degree that there is no longer a waiting period.

Mrs. Mullen also acknowledged that the major contributing factor to secondary PTSD of military wives is the daily fear that their deployed husbands may not return home. Mass media has not sufficiently raised society’s understanding what immense daily stress military wives experience which over time, may lead to their secondary PTSD symptoms. The military wives’ situation has also been neglected by the VA for years. According to Mrs. Mullen this neglect needs to be remedied so that spouses no longer feel embarrassed to seek treatment for their PTSD. According to reports military spouses often self-medicate in order not to jeopardize their husbands’ career.

Since ‘Healing PTSD Trauma’ on CD is available for military spouses too, there is absolutely no reason to suffer from PTSD but to take action,  if you experience secondary symptoms of PTSD.

Let me point out a few of the symptoms of PTSD which military spouses and caregivers may experience: insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, loss of concentration, depression, headaches, avoiding the outside world.

Wives may get so worn out by their post-traumatic stress (PTSD) that they stay in bed, neglect meals and their children, take recourse to alcohol, prescription drugs, even commit suicide as last resort.

Military spouses, I know how strong you are. Please continue to watch out for each other.

Healing PTSD Trauma” is there for you too to heal your symptoms of PTSD and trauma.
