War Studies Suggest A Concussion Leaves The Brain Vulnerable To PTSD

As reported by NPR, new research affirms the idea that injuries to the brain can put you at risk of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These studies with troops deployed in the Middle East add to a growing body of evidence that one form of brain injury — concussion — is a special health concern.

It’s not just military action, however, that gives people head wounds: From automobile accidents to sports injuries to simply falling off a bicycle, a plethora of activities can potentially harm the brain and put you in danger of a long recovery and possibly PTSD. While many times an accident simply can’t be avoided, there are things you can do to help prevent a head injury, for example, by wearing a well-constructed helmet for sports activities.

Unfortunately, a hospitalization is usually a given if you do have a head injury, and that’s why it’s profoundly important to pay attention to other research that supports natural ways of helping the brain get back to normal. For example, omega-3 fat therapy administered through a feeding tube, is believed to help.

Once you’re well and on the road to healing, healthy fat consumption, coupled with exercise and a good diet can also help. And, while you can't eliminate anxiety from your life entirely, energy psychology tools such as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) can help you reduce your stress and PTSD by correcting the bioelectrical short-circuiting that can happen when anxiety becomes chronic.
