PTSD, otherwise known as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, is defined by the Mayo Clinic as “a mental health condition triggered by a terrifying event-either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.” The prevalence of this debilitating condition is staggering. According to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, over 30% of Vietnam Veterans, 10% of Gulf War Veterans, 11% of Afghanistan Veterans, and 20% of Iraqi War Veterans suffer from PTSD.
First Responders are also affected by PTSD. According to “At the Ready Magazine,” 33% of Firefighters suffer from PTSD. Also included in the First Responders group are Law Enforcement Officers and Emergency Medical Services personnel, many of whom suffer from PTSD.
“dēhp Therapeutic is an integrative, neuro-therapeutic, non-pharmacological technique that has successfully stopped the pain and debilitating effects of PTSD” according to Ms. Sullins. “It is a comprehensive treatment that accelerates development. It accesses the body’s natural need to process traumatic experiences.”
