Holistic Non-12 Step Treatment for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.
The internal struggle of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is so much harder than it looks from the outside. While to others, you may just appear socially withdrawn, there’s an entire world of fear and anxiety unfolding within you. That experience can be so alienating that you want to go back to the traumatizing situation just to feel normal again. You live on alert, and without warning, you may suddenly start to feel afraid of everyone. You’re exhausted, but you avoid sleeping because you have nightmares. You worry that because of your trust issues, you’ll never be able to have a normal relationship again. You wish you could forget the past, but PTSD makes it impossible. You feel like a prisoner in your own mind.
Many people are afraid to get diagnosed or seek treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder because they don’t want to look any closer at the problem. Understandably, many are anxious about the stigma that comes along with it. And as a result, their feelings of aloneness and rejection continue unchecked.
At The Sanctuary, many of our clients come to us for problems like interrupted sleep, startle response and feeling stuck in a hypervigilant, fight-or-flight mode. This is a very real form of suffering.
But the good news is that the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder are fairly easy to remedy; modern holistic treatment offers a variety of powerful techniques to release its symptoms. However, without doing the deeper work, those symptoms can always come back. Beyond simply treating the symptoms, we need to the core of trauma, and the beliefs that have been created around it.
You can resolve, heal and transform your trauma – and doing so is often an entry point into an even more engaged and joyful life. The Sanctuary can help you get there, by:
- Creating an environment in which you’re completely safe
- Using a holistic selection of healing methods to alleviate the symptoms of PTSD and allow you to feel comfortable
- More deeply addressing the root causes of your trauma, so that your symptoms no longer occur
