Depression affects an estimated 350 million people in the world today. Caused by chemical imbalances in the brain, depression can majorly affect someone’s day to day life.

PTSD: Relieving Symptoms with Neurofeedback

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a psychiatric disorder caused by experiencing a life threatening, terrifying, or traumatic event. Examples of events that may cause PTSD includes physical or sexual assault, catastrophic accidents, military combat experiences, unexpected deaths, and natural disasters. The person who develops PTSD either experienced the event first hand or witnessed another person experience harm. When a person is in danger, the brain naturally creates a “fight or flight” response in order to help protect people from potential harm. However, if a person has PTSD, their “fight or flight” response has been damaged, causing unnecessary feelings of stress and/or fright despite not being in danger. PTSD can occur at any age for both men and women, although women are more likely to develop the condition.
