Post-traumatic stress disorder can affect anybody who has had some sort of traumatic or life changing event, such as a car crash, physical/ sexual/ emotional abuse or personal assaults, natural disasters or the death of a loved one.
Any situation causing emotional, physical or mental trauma can result in PTSD.
Some symptoms of PTSD include insomnia, anxiety, irritability, anger, flashbacks, as well as feelings of despair, shame, hopelessness and thoughts of suicide.
This can result in significant challenges for school, college, work, social and home life.
Well being Dublin offers a solution for those seeking assistance from a trained natural health professional via acupuncture, herbal medicine and or naturopathy.
Anne not only supports those affected to gradually resume equilibrium, but also to become empowered to create their own toolbox for health and well-being into the future.
The cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is what we call “pattern differentiation.” As informed by this diagnostic framework, Anne don’t simply treat named diseases, she treats patterns. Patterns are groups of signs and symptoms, and the patterns identified in Chinese medicine have been used to help billions of people for thousands of years.
Compared to conventional approaches to mental health, Traditional Chinese Medicine has a unique approach to P.T.S.D.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, conditions such as P.T.S.D. typically reflect as both physical and mental disharmony within the individual and are reflective of an individual “Pattern of Disharmony”.
No matter if a client is attending for acupuncture, herbal medicine or naturopathy, a treatment plan will be based on a personalised in-depth consultation to first evaluate causality and identity this “Pattern”.
The initial consultation takes account of all possible contributions which may exacerbate P.T.S.D (e.g medical history regarding underlaying health conditions, recreational drug use, diet and lifestyle factors etc.).
A personalized treatment plan will be put in place then to reducing acute symptoms and restore equilibrium to the body; to improve overall mental health and overall wellness.
That is in light of the principle that T.C.M and holistic medicine in general is a mind/body medicine which aims to optimise the health and wellbeing of the whole person.
