Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Sometimes people with PTSD feel like they are “crazy” because of the way they depersonalize, or go numb internally, in response to reminders of the traumatic stimuli. Feeling disconnected from your body can be a scary thing, but it is a recognized symptom of PTSD. There are effective treatments for PTSD, and symptoms can be reduced or eliminated altogether.
Dr. Bessel van der Kolk endorses EMDR and neurofeedback as the "big guns" of trauma treatment because they both can change brainwave activity. Fonda has extensive experience using EMDR and Brainpaint neurofeedback. In fact, Fonda was the first person in the entire Central Valley to begin using BrainPaint.
