PTSD Is A Treatable Disorder

John Gray


What is PTSD?

Posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma.

People who have suffered a trauma that they cannot process or cope with generally feel powerless and vulnerable, and often suffer from emotional and physical complaints like stress, aggression, and insomnia.

High levels of cortisol can affect areas of the brain linked to fear. High levels of cortisol over long periods of time suppresses the immune system and affect the brain tremendously. Only half of all PTSD sufferers are rehabilitated after extensive therapy. The other half are stuck with a syndrome that can make their lives unbearable.

According to this study, many veterans who served in the Vietnam War still have war-zone-related post-traumatic stress disorder. Thanks to the National Vietnam Veterans Longitudinal Study, a study of PTSD in Vietnam vets done more than 25 years ago, researchers had historic data on the prevalence of PTSD. They conducted a follow-up to the study by gathering new data from the 1,450 veterans who were still alive and willing to participate in another round of PTSD assessments. 

The team determined that after 40 years, there are about 271,000 Vietnam vets who are suffering from PTSD. More than a third of them also have a major depressive disorder.
