Cure PTSD Without Re-Living It

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Treatment

If you went through a traumatic experience and are having trouble getting back to your regular life and reconnecting to others, you may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). When you have PTSD, it can seem like you’ll never get over what happened or feel normal again. But this is not true.

Immediate relief is now available to end your suffering. There is a new way the psychological pain of this disorder can be dealt with that will not re-create the same nightmare you are already living in over and over as a means to resolve it. It is called Restructuring Therapy.

First realize there is no need for shame or self condemnation since this is a normal response to abnormal events. The sooner you seek treatment, the less damaging it will be to you and those around you. The beliefs that PTSD never goes away but only becomes less intense and that it has to handicap the person for life can no longer be considered accurate.

Highly Effective Treatment Breakthrough

Restructuring Therapy is able to permanently relieve the underlying fears, triggers, traumas, and memories that create and sustain the hypervigilance, nightmares, flashbacks, anxiety, and intense physical reactions. 

Rather than making the person become re-traumatized and re-imprinted by re-living the experience multiple times with Behavior Therapy or psychiatric Exposure Therapy, a new medical modality has been developed that deletes the underlying causes of PSTD that does not use flooding and therefore is non-imprinting and non-traumatic.

Desensitization or Implosive Therapy using forced exposure in which the patient imagines or is exposed to anxiety producing stimuli, triggers presented in intense forms with the presentations continuing until the stimuli no longer produce disabling anxiety seems a cruel and illogical way to diminish the fear response. The hope is that by ‘overloading’–ie flooding the person’s psyche with the dread event or object, anxiety is exhausted and the patient learns to cope with largely irrational fear.

Since PTSD stems from real time events not imaginings, I do not consider the resulting fears and phobias to be irrational ones. Therefore using a rational approach by removing the sources of the fears and the triggered responses using Restructuring Deletion Protocols that are immediate and permanent is a more efficient less disturbing approach.

Aversive conditioning which is systematic desensitization by introducing coping mechanisms, sometimes under hypnosis, to handle the phobias and anxiety are unnecessary since the causality of the stress induced phobic reactions have been Deleted from the mind.

Contrary to these traditional methods of handling PTSD’s maladaptive anxiety, restructuring the subconscious mind does not result in making the traumatic program larger or deepening the imprint on the psyche. The subconscious mind has no program to fire as a first reaction to stress during similar circumstances.  Through the removal and flattening of the energy flowing thru the memories and fears attached to the events that cause the triggers to fire, in other words by unlocking or releasing the brain’s information processing system which locks up during high stress impact situations, emotional blocks become accessible for removal.

Followed by the deletion of the events themselves and all associated programs wired to the events, the triggers themselves cease to exist.

The subconscious mind then integrates all these deletions preparing for the  installation of restructured mental concepts containing beliefs, thoughts, feelings, words, and actions that are the opposite polarity of the deleted programs which provides supportive therapy without the need for psychogenic drugs like antidepressants, SSRIs, and MAOIs.

Restructuring therapy, which is not talk therapy, provides many new and diverse psychological perspectives relating to the incident and effective reframes from which the client can choose relevant to the entire complex of areas affected.

Handling survivor guilt, self contempt, self punishment, misplaced blame, misperceived causality, are also tractable to treatment and deletion with Restructuring Therapy.

Further, by removing the triggers for anxiety, distress and fear, it is not necessary to control or medicate these powerful stressors away. 

The preferred method discussed above, rather than integrating the painful memories into the personality, is to permanently terminate the painful memories. Energy and attention may then be concentrated on integrating the healthy aspects of the personality with the part of self that is already whole and completely aware that its own creative intelligence can take control of the situation and not only resolve it, but learn from it to prevent repetitive life patterns, and create better circumstances from which to source life.

Discovering and removing or restructuring identities that may be contributing to the mental constructs keeping you trapped in the past, provides fresh perspectives and opportunities for transforming your point of reference for life and more importantly, for yourself. 

And lastly there is no healing with forgiveness and releasement. Forgiveness is the gift we give ourselves not the other. It loosens the ties that bind us to the person or the event even more tightly than bonds of love. The anger and resentment and vengeful thoughts can be turned inward which just exacerbates the depression and agony the PTSD person is in. If projected outward, compounded with the fear, pain, anger and hatred that may be present, it is not safe for the person or whomever they may thrust these feelings onto. Often people project these strong negative emotions on those they love.  The Restructuring Forgiveness and Releasement Protocol diffuses all the lower energy emotions and gives the person a fresh start. It should be run on the object of the resentment and then run again on the self which takes a great deal of self deprecation and loss of respect in posttraumatic stress disorder. 

Family therapy and counseling is critical to the full integrated recovery of the PTSD sufferer. The entire family unit is affected by a person with posttraumatic stress disorder. Changes in personality like the acting out or the distancing of the person suffering from the symptoms is often misunderstood and misinterpretended by family members, especially the children of the family. For this reason family counseling is productive by educated them about what you are going through, what the possible symptomlogy you may experience. Understanding will go a long way toward facilitating everyone being able to work through the relationship problems they are experiencing and possibly contributing to. Good communication skills really need to be used during this sensitive but charged time.
