Treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a mental disorder which develops due to exposure to some form of traumatic event like war, natural disaster, terrorist acts, violence etc. They have difficulties in adjusting to the effects of the traumatic events. Most people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder re-live these traumatic events in the form of nightmares, flashbacks etc. and they move into states of sadness, depression, anxiety etc. People experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder generally remain aloof and are unable to live a normal life. The symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder may start appearing within a month from the occurrence of the traumatic event. However, in some cases, the symptoms may be visible after few years also. EFT therapy is being widely used as an effective form of alternative treatment technique for treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder.
