What Is PTSD?
Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a condition brought on by experiencing an emotionally and or physically traumatic event. More than three-million Americans are diagnosed with it every year. The condition needs to be addressed by a medical professional and requires a diagnosis. PTSD can last years, and prescribed treatment is typically psychotherapy and medication to manage symptoms. BioTE® Medical’s method of hormone replacement using pellet therapy may help balance the hormones affected by PTSD and may help relieve symptoms of PTSD.
How Does PTSD Present in Men?
Men may have nightmares, flashbacks, and compulsive avoidance of situations that may remind the victim of the trauma. PTSD can have a crippling effect on quality of life and impact every aspect of a person’s day. For example, PTSD brought on from car wrecks can prevent sufferers from being able to ride in cars without significant distress. Intense emotional reactions to everyday situations can be exhausting and leave sufferers feeling depressed, isolated, and like they may never be able to experience normalcy again.
How Can Hormone Pellets Help with PTSD Therapy for Men?
