When someone experiences trauma, it can basically be divided into two broad categories. There is Event Trauma and there is Relationship Trauma. Certainly, there is overlap between the two. But homeopathy can help you recover from either Event Trauma or Relationship Trauma without having to relive the trauma.
Event Trauma is what we typically think of with military folks who experience PTSD. It could be a near-death experience or perhaps feeling responsible for the negative outcomes for others under your charge if you gave the orders. It can just take one event, or perhaps several events of the same type.
First Responders also have event trauma. There are few other professions where you are always seeing people on the worst days of their lives. But First Responders–such as police, fire fighters, EMT’s, ER Docs, etc.—this is their lives. Seeing the same trauma over and over again can produce PTSD symptoms.
Civilians also can develop PTSD from event trauma. This would include such things as near death experiences, or witnessing a bad accident, feeling responsible for an accident, etc.
While there is certainly some overlap in remedies between the groups, the military folks who experience PTSD generally need remedies that tend to have more violence associated with them. This makes sense as their experience(s) that led to the PTSD arise from inherently violent situations. It is pretty rare for a civilian to need the remedies that have violence embedded in their essence, unless they were physically assaulted. The First Responders overlap both groups in terms of the remedies they need.
This type of trauma is much more complicated than Event Trauma in terms of finding a remedy. Relationship trauma is frequently referred to as Complex PTSD, or CPTSD. It often is the result of growing up in a dysfunctional family–basically, parents who don’t know how to parent and run rough shot on the kids or ignore their needs. Or worse, abuse them physically or sexually. Abusing (usually) the mother in the family can also create Relationship Trauma for not only the mother but the children too.
As you can imagine, Relationship Trauma often contains an element of Event Trauma as well, usually related to emotional or physical abuse of some sort. But the important thing is that the relationship with the person involved in the Event Trauma (or repeated Event Trauma) is what triggers the PTSD. In the Event Trauma, the event itself is more likely to be the trigger.
Event trauma is much easier to treat and turn around time is pretty quick. The emotions, feelings, and sensations are more limited in scope than those of Relationship Trauma. Even if the patient can’t describe their feelings, being afraid for their life, for example is often enough for me to dig a little deeper and find a remedy. The same is true with Event Trauma where someone feels responsible for what happened to others.
People who have Relationship Trauma are much more difficult to find a remedy for than those who suffer from PTSD from Event Trauma. Relationships are tricky, messy things. Sometimes people don’t even know what they are feeling, they have been stuffing their feelings for so long. Or they just know they feel off, they aren’t happy, but don’t know any more than that.
Regardless of the type of PTSD you have, Homeopathy can help you recover. Expect it to take longer if you have Relationship Trauma. But this doesn’t mean you won’t improve along the way. With Relationship Trauma especially, you have generally had it your entire life. The longer you have had a certain type of “dis-ease” the longer it will take you to recover. If you were lucky, you had at least one adult who cared for you, often a grandparent. That makes the healing go faster, in my experience.
Homeopathy can help with event trauma or relationship trauma. If you have questions about whether homeopathy can help you, schedule complementary consult and we can chat for a bit. If you’d like to get started right away, schedule an initial consult. You CAN feel better!
