Can Increased Brain Activity Help Heal PTSD?

January 31, 2014 Michele Rosenthal

Can you use your brain to help your brain stop trauma memories before they're made? Signs point to, Yes.

Your body and brain's response to trauma creates your symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder, so can your brain's activity help to heal PTSD?

New Evidence About How To Stop Trauma Memories

We already know that many brain processes can help re-regulate different branches of the autonomic nervous system. Particularly, the sympathetic nervous system can be taught to relax and stop its overreactions to non-dangerous situations.

But can you use your brain to help your brain stop trauma memories before they're made? And if so, how does that knowledge relate to healing PTSD after the trauma memories already exist?

The audio that answered those specific questions is no longer available. Here are some articles that will help:
