Alternative Treatments for PTSD

DISCLAIMER: Unfortunately, we live in a world where "fine print" is necessary!  Please note, you SHOULD
TALK TO YOUR PHYSICIAN
before trying any new therapy.  Even natural remedies can have adverse
reactions (especially for those who are already taking a cocktail of prescription drugs).  We ARE NOT
physicians, but simply veterans and caregivers who are sharing our own experiences and insight.  

In PTSD "world" one of the hardest aspects of learning to cope can (unfortunately) be the
side effects of the various prescription drugs used to *try* to manage symptoms.  Many
times, the prescribed medications are a HUGE help.  But, often their "helpfulness" is
dampened by chronic sleepiness, stomach issues, a feeling of "floating" or being detached
from the world, headaches, liver damage, etc., etc., etc.

If you (as a Veteran or caregiver) are looking for more natural, holistic approaches to
treating the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, you will find the information in this
section helpful.  And, if you know of a treatment, supplement, or alternative therapy that
has worked for you, please
CONTACT US and tell us about it!
