PTSD Books and Resources
PTSD can happen to anyone, in fact about 6 of every 100 people will have PTSD at some point in their lives.
Whether a Veteran or a civilian who has experienced a traumatic event, PTSD symptoms can take a toll on your mental health and overall well-being.
In the book The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind And Body In The Healing Of Trauma, I’ve learned about the impact these difficult memories can have not just on your mind but the body as well. The author, Bessel van der Kolk, M.D., dives into the why and how PTSD can have such detrimental effects on our lives. But more importantly, he shares proven techniques to free you from it’s pain.
“For real change to take place, the body needs to learn that the danger has passed and to live in the reality of the present.” – Bessel van der Kolk, M.D.,
If you or someone you know suffers from PTSD, I highly recommend picking up a copy of The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind And Body In The Healing Of Trauma.
We all need a little positivity in our daily lives, and one of my favorite ways to get that is through the “Sparks in Action” podcast by Donna Sherman. From inspiring interviews with everyday people to resources and practices you can implement in your life – her podcast always leaves me feeling encouraged and with a smile on my face.
Donna also offers a multitude of classes focused on mindfulness, creating positive habits, relaxation, and more. Check her out (https://www.donnalsherman.com/)!

Before Ketamine Treatments, Shmaila described her mental health as “At my best, I was just living. Just breathing, eating and sleeping.” After 3 months of ketamine treatment Shmaila said she was “reconnecting with the joys of life that have been vacant for so long.”
