We might talk about the horrors of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after watching a segment on the news or during a discussion at a dinner party, but most of us know very little of this debilitating condition first-hand. Yet for so many soldiers, PTSD is not only relevant, but something that tears at the very fabric of their daily lives.
Some estimates put the number of veteran suicides at nearly 20 A DAY! And the vast majority of those are either directly or indirectly blamed on PTSD.
Famed alternative medicine proponent, Dr. Joseph M. Mercola, examines how transcendental meditation could be a key aide in helping people make their way though the utter darkness of post-traumatic stress. In this January 2013 article, Mercola covers the science behind the benefits of meditation and also looks at efforts currently underway to treat our veterans.
If you or a loved one is suffering from PTSD, you can read Mercola’s full article here.
