Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

EMDR – You might want to ask yourself, what exactly is this emdr? it is a form of psychotherapy that was developed to resolve symptoms resulting from disturbing and unresolved life experiences. It uses a structured approach to address past, present, and future aspects of disturbing memories. The approach was developed by Francine Shapiro to resolve the development of trauma-related disorders as resulting from exposure to a traumatic or distressing event, such as rape or military combat.

When a person recalls a distressing memory, the person can re-experience what they saw, heard, smelt, tasted or felt, which can be intense. By alternating left-right stimulation of the brain with eye movements, patients can stimulate the “frozen” information processing system. During the process, the distressing memories seem to lose their intensity so that the memories are less distressing and seem more like ‘ordinary’ memories.

emdr_ptsd_educationTrauma-related disorders could be as a result of a traumatic or distressing event, such as rape or military combat.  I’ll be discussing the military combat which is what really interest me. Are our veterans really being treated fairly when it comes to trauma, PTSD and the side effects of war? Does this so called emdr really works? Although, I have heard of cases where clinics use the emdr for other purposes, other than what is mentioned above, but since it is not official, I will not mention it here.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy process and procedures, according to Francine Shapiro involves eight phases to have a complete and effective emdr treatment.   This phases or seasons are taking patient history, discussing overall treatment plan, identify patient safe place, to serve as a reset mode when or during unbearable reminders of the past traumatic events, identifying the negative cognition, the installation phase, identifying pain or discomfort, debriefing and re-evaluation.

As long as traumatic memories go unprocessed, they may be triggered by experiences or interactions in your current life, shifting and coloring your perceptions. Some people need more than conversations and replacement thoughts to resolve what is happening in their minds and bodies. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, EMDR psychotherapy, provides a proven therapeutic alternative

Ibogaine: The Road To Recovery

Ibogaine

Ibogaine – Most of the people associate with the abuse of harmful drugs and liquor with rock and roll (and by extension, to stars and other celebrities).

As the chosen lifestyle of these people definitely causes them to be prone to substance abuse, ordinary people can also make the exact same mistakes.

Up against problems and with the lack of a reliable support system, most people rely on drugs or alcohol to get a temporary false perception of comfort.  It might be your office mate,  neighbor or a much loved one(s).

When you know an individual who is coping with drug abuse problem, it is always good to discover that there’s an effective treatment solution to assist them to restore their foothold in their lives: ibogaine.  There is nothing worse than seeing a family member succumb to drug and alcohol abuse besides seeing them get better and afterwards relapse on their old habit.  It happens all the time, especially with soldiers.  Ibogaine is derived from the Iboga plant which is native to Africa.  The residents used the plant simply because of its healing qualities and also for spiritual rituals.

Under western culture, the plant’s derivatives have been used to come up with drugs for dieting and for a solution for people struggling with chronic depression.  Today, this drug is referred to as among the most efficient methods to treat people obsessed with heroin, Oxycontin,  cocaine, methamphetamine and much more.

How exactly does it work? The medicine functions upon the dopamine receptors inside the brain.  These receptors are responsible for the feeling of craving among addicts.  Dopamine receptors also are liable for the negative impacts of withdrawal which many drug users who try to wean off their addiction experience.  Since these receptors are already blocked, the patient’s body can get rid of the drugs outside of his or her system with no related withdrawal effects.

It’s also beneficial to notice that patients that have used this drug report of having lucid dreams.  This is particularly helpful throughout the counseling sessions of the patients, as they try and determine primary issues which must be remedied to reach the primary cause of the addiction problem.

Ibogaine Benefit

The greatest thing about this medicine is that when it is used to remedy folks who suffer from drug and alcohol abuse, as opposed to traditional treatment methods, the rate of success is stated to be from 60% to 80%.  You will find some caveats, though.  First, because this medicine is classified as being a schedule 1 drug, you’ll need to go overseas to acquire this treatment.  Second, people who have specific heart or liver conditions are advised against undergoing this type of treatment method.  The same goes for people who are excessively thin or people who are overweight.  Other than that, there were no reported noteworthy undesirable side effects.
