EEG Institute to Provide Free Post-Traumatic Stress Treatment for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans
Date:12/4/2007

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the last few months a great amount of attention has been placed on what can be done for those veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars who return home suffering from PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder. The vast majority of veterans are relegated to costly medications that fall far short of helping deal with this debilitating condition. As many veteran advocates and military healthcare experts agree, the nation's hard-pressed health care system for veterans is facing a potential deluge of tens of thousands of soldiers returning from Iraq with serious mental health problems brought on by the stress and carnage of war.

As a result, The EEG Institute in Woodland Hills California is doing what it can to assist veterans traumatized by PTSD by providing free of charge a proven program of Neurofeedback that can help reverse the effects of PTSD. "The brain is like a muscle," explains Susan Othmer, B.A., B.C.I.A.C., and clinical director of the EEG Institute. "What Neurofeedback does is provide a painless and medication free way that the brain can be given what amounts to a very specific tune-up. Over the course of the treatment we are able to help the patient back to a normal existence that is not hindered by the traumatic events they have experienced."

The training is based on reinforcement of good brain behavior using the EEG as a measure. The repetition of this exercise for a number of thirty-minute sessions leads typically to improved cognitive function and improved emotional control. "The work is success-oriented rather than deficit-focused. It is a fitness strategy that avoids the jargon of mental health, and suits the soldier's natural orientation toward a training and fitness program," explains Othmer. Veterans who have been through the program have shown tremendous positive benefits. A veteran who hadn't slept more than 2 hours at a time was sleeping through the night after just 7 sessions
