We Bridge The Gap From an Unhealthy Brain to a Healthy Brain
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychological disorder that results in a series of emotional and physical reactions to individuals who have either witnessed or experienced a traumatic event. Life changing events such as car accidents, assault, natural disaster, living in a war zone, or life-altering experiences like the death of a loved one – can all cause post-traumatic stress syndrome.
Some symptoms of PTSD are: disturbance in sleep, nightmares or flashbacks, physical pain such as migraines, breathing difficulties, digestive issues, mental phobias, withdrawals, and many other symptoms. Everyone reacts differently to feelings of fear or conditions of stress. That is why not everyone who experiences or witnesses a trauma develops PTSD.
Our top notch professional team takes a global approach to treating patients with these chronic issues. First off, we understand depression and anxiety to be symptoms of underlying biochemical and neurological imbalance that we must identify. Through extensive testing of blood, urine and stool, we can clearly assess for underlying problems that may be causative or contributory. We screen for MTHFR gene mutations that are directly linked to these issues. We also look carefully at our patient’s nervous system through a functional examination as well as brain mapping.
Once we have all the information, we treat our patients comprehensively with a program of care that includes natural compounds, IV nutrition, neurological rehabilitation and neurofeedback. We have the ability to prescribe and/or reduce medications as well.
For patients who do not respond to medication or other therapies, we offer Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). TMS is a painless 45-50 minute treatment that is usually done 5 or 6 days a week for 5-6 weeks. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is FDA cleared and most often covered through insurance and Medicare plans. It is a non-invasive, drug-free, effective alternative with long lasting relief. Over a million individuals have successfully used transcranial magnetic stimulation to effectively change their lives from chronic and debilitating psychiatric conditions that impact millions of people each year.
