You don’t have to live with the unchecked side effects of depression and PTSD for the rest of your life. The Holistic Sanctuary believes in bringing wholeness back to your life through a variety of holistic therapies and treatments that help your trauma and addiction treatment in a safe, comprehensive environment. Here are some of the best treatment options and strategies for depression treatment and PTSD.
Before any real healing can take place, patients need a safe space. What makes it safe? Having professional medical help on hand to help patients who might be in the midst of physical withdrawals from coming off of alcohol, or other substances. Also, it’s essential to create what feels like a physically and emotionally safe environment, so that patients can feel comfortable enough to dig into internal spaces of trauma or emotional instability. Creating a safe space enables patients in their journey towards emotional and psychological wholeness.
Sometimes, trauma symptoms can manifest before the root issue has even been identified. Or perhaps a patient is ascribing their addiction or their anger to a specific thing, whenever other underlying causes may be at work. Whatever the case, an essential step in the healing process is identifying the underlying cause and not just the triggers of depression or PTSD. Is it sourced at a single event, or a series of events, in an individual’s life? A condition is so much more than just its triggers, but those triggers may help to identify the root issue. Shedding understanding, encouragement and even love onto those spaces of deep hurt can help bring revolutionary transformation.
Our brains are like walking paths in a wooded area. The more certain paths are tread, the more pronounced and easy to walk those paths become. The same is true of our thought patterns. The more we choose, for instance, to respond to situations we feel that we’ve been overlooked or ignored in anger and bitterness, then the more that type of thinking will be reinforced in how we react to situations. The same is true of positive thought patterns. The more those optimistic, hopeful, self-affirming thought patterns are repeated, and the easier and more automatic they become. This can have a revolutionary impact on how we perceive depression—it can cause patients to realize that they don’t in fact deserve their depression, or deserve the pent-up anxiety of their PTSD trauma. That truth can be life-changing.
Research continues to reinforce the benefits of using natural plant medicines such as Ibogaine and Ayahuasca to help treat the anxiety and depression associated with trauma and PTSD. Ayahuasca specifically can help restore chemical balance to a brain that’s been affected so much by the use of anti-depressants or other drugs. Ayahuasca is not another anti-depressant, but is a natural treatment for helping a patient to completely transition off of drug therapies helping them cope with their trauma, in a healthy way.
It all really comes down to redefining how a patient sees themselves, and chooses to live their lives every day. If the depression and PTSD treatment have no impact in the day-to-day, then it’s not a meaningful experience with lasting positive change for individuals involved. That’s why teaching a holistic lifestyle change is so essential, and redefining habits in choices and thinking can have a more far reaching impact long-term.
