Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Debilitating, Chronic Stress
All around the world, people suffer from the long-lasting effects of stresses gotten from terrorism, war, violence, sexual abuse, natural disasters, other highly stressful events
Many people are deeply affected but recover from the nightmares, flashbacks, and other effects of these events. However, some victims of such traumas cannot heal even in 30 days and find those recurring images of terrifying events, hypervigilance, anger, negativity towards themselves and others, and a host of associated shifts in perception and behavior. The changes do not go away and they are left imprisoned in a horror movie of their own history. Many take up drugs or alcohol to hide from the overwhelming stress.
Something must be done for the 23 million Americans and hundreds of millions of people around the world living in isolation, inner negativity, nightmarish recollections, risky and violent behavior and frozen emotions.
Something must be done to help these people recover, to give them back their happy, and productive lives.
New Tool: New Gold Standard
One highly rapid, effective and side-effect free tool to reduce PTSD in the Transcendental Meditation program. Without re-experiencing or even remembering the trauma, the meditator effortlessly experiences more silent, less excited, levels of thought and feeling. At the same time, the TM meditator gets deeper rest than the deepest point in deep sleep and releases the fatigue and stress even of the most stressful traumatic events.
Published research in the prestigious Journal of Traumatic Stress (April, 2013; February, 2014) shows that within even 10 days of learning TM, the war refugees who had witnessed or directly experienced the most horrible events had a very great and highly significant drop in PTSD symptoms. Within 30 days they were below the clinical level of PTSD. They were once again happy, loving and able to care for their families. Even though they were in a foreign land where they could not easily speak the language, they started to try and get work or create work for themselves.
