PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder) is an anxiety disorder that often develops after exposure to one or more terrifying events that threatened or caused grave physical harm. PTSD is a major issue for military service men and women who have returned from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. According to a recent study by the RAND Corporation, about one in five war veterans or 300,000 in total, report symptoms of PTSD or major depression. Of concern is that half of the vets experiencing PTSD have not sought treatment, primarily for fear it will harm their careers. Also, according to the study, PTSD could cost America as much as $6.2 billion. Investing in better treatment could save close to $2 billion. EFT could be a lifesaver for returning veterans and their families.
In March of 2008, Gary Craig and other EFT experts spent five days helping PTSD ridden military veterans in San Francisco to introduce them to EFT. Gary just released a 20 minute segment. Please watch it. Note that in capturing the candor of these veterans, there are a couple of profanities mentioned. A psychologist and psychiatrist also participated and make comments about the efficacy of EFT. This is an impressive video to watch because EFT offers great hope in helping to heal the trauma of our military veterans and their families. You can view it online at EFT Universe. Please share this video with people you know who might benefit from seeing it.
