It is estimated that 60 percent of men, and 50 percent of women, will experience a trauma at some point in their life. More than 10 percent of those people will experience post-traumatic stress disorder — PTSD — a debilitating psychiatric disorder characterized by depression, fits of rage, and flashbacks. If that doesn’t sound like much to you, another way you could put it is, roughly seven out of every 100 ordinary people will experience PTSD. That’s seven percent of the overall population. Now, add to that the millions upon millions of other people who will be afflicted by two other equally devastating illnesses: Traumatic Brain Injury — TBI — and Compassion Fatigue — CF.
What this leaves us with is a huge portion of the American public struggling day by day to cope with these disabilities that cannot be cured or treated in a conventional sense like other illnesses. In recent years, scientists have determined that mindfulness meditation can be an effective alternative therapy for treating the symptoms of PTSD and other conditions like it due to its ability to alleviate stress and anxiety, as well as reduce feelings of depression and alienation — common symptoms experienced by those with PTSD, TBI, and CF.
Mindfulness Meditation for PTSD, TBI, and Compassion Fatigue e-book (Amazon), explores these conditions from an academic point of view, and then offers coping strategies and mindfulness meditation exercises that can be used to manage the symptoms. Whether you are someone who is suffering from one of these conditions, or you are a caretaker who is trying to learn more about these conditions and the available treatments, Mindfulness Meditation for PTSD, TBI, and Compassion Fatigue book (Amazon) is a comprehensive resource you’re sure to value.
