Untreated PTSD Is Toxic!by Michael on 08/20/15
"Feelings are PURE energy contained inside of our bodies...all generated by our amazing brains. Tragically, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder...a catastrophic explosion of energy within our brains...can cause physical damage to brain tissue...it can atrophy in parts of the brain directly affected by the trauma experience...primarily...the Thalamus, Hypothalamus, Hippocampus, Amygdala, and Pre-Frontal Cortex.
This explosion of dangerous energy is captured, or, encapsulated within our bodies. Our bodies provide the best hermetically sealed environment for this 'out of control energy' to subsist! Picture pinballs pinging and banging off of electronically sensitive buffers. Those brain buffers, otherwise known as neurons, will aggressively push toxic energy away because of the force in which it was hit with. When said energy is forcefully pushed away...it interferes with neurotransmission. Unless that body 'energy' is released in a protective and safe therapeutic milieu...it literally becomes TOXIC to the human body over time.
The toxicity of untreated PTSD has psychological and physiological compromises. Remember, the Thalamus, Hypothalamus, Hippocampus, Amygdala, and Pre-Frontal Cortex produce chemicals that dictate what our bodies will do and/or not do. Everything from memory and cognition issues to poor or anorexic sexual performance problems are due to the stored toxic energy I spoke of. Drug/alcohol abuse/addiction, depression and other mental health concerns are quite common. Irrational outbursts of anger plus assaultive behaviors can occur. Untreated PTSD can also lead to diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and heart attacks. Our veterans WILL NOT heal unless their minds and bodies are restored to states of homeostasis.
