Persons with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) have gone for years and have not been able to get rid of their symptoms. Jerome E. Holliday, a board certified psychologist in Saint Charles, MO understand that traditional therapies and medications are not effective in treating PTSD and anxiety symptoms. This is because the trauma memory is locked in the hippocampus of the brain and is not affected by traditional psychotherapies. However, there are new PTSD therapy procedures that have been developed to treat the locked memories in the hippocampus and reduce PTSD and anxiety symptoms.
I have been treating and diagnosing over 200 veterans with PTSD for the last 20 years. With the new techniques developed through PTSD and anxiety therapy, I have been able to reduce PTSD patients' symptoms to near zero. These symptoms include:
Outburst Of Anger
Reduction In Social Impairment
Cranial Electrical Stimulation Therapy in Saint Charles, MO
Jerome E Holliday, PhD, Psychologist Treating PTSD, Anxiety and Depression, uses four therapies to deal with the locked memories of the trauma in the hippocampus of the brain that is approved by the FDA. They are:
(EMDR) Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
(CES) Cranial Electrical Stimulation in Saint Charles, MO
EMDR and CES
In EMDR I have the patient picturing the trauma and ask what is felt in the body and their emotions while they are picturing this. The effect of envisioning the trauma on the brain is shown by the high intensity of the electroencephalograph (EEG) brain waves shown in the left side of Fig 1. I then move my finger across their face, which they follow with their eyes.
At the same time, I turn on the CES Cranial Electrical Stimulation in Saint Charles, MO, using ear clips on each ear to attach the CES. The CES reduces the EEG particularly the anxious beta 5 (30-35c/s black line) to near zero which is considerably more than with EMDR by itself.
At the end of the EMDR +CES secession, the patient's intensity of body sensations and their emotions were significantly reduced, which is used for post-traumatic stress disorder treatment PTSD if done over 5 or 6 one hour secessions. The length of the ENDR secession is shown between the left two dashed lines in Fig 1, which is about a minute. It will be seen that EMDR reduces EEG brain activity. I then repeat the EMDR. The EMDR, CES, and EEG measurements are shown in Fig 1 below between the dashed lines on the right side of the graph.
Neurofeedback Therapy in Saint Charles, MO
One thing the PTSD patient needs to do to reduce their symptoms is to stop going over the trauma in their minds. This is helped by the Neurofeedback Therapy in Saint Charles, MO, which has a moving picture which stops when the beta5 gets too high due to the patient having thoughts of the trauma. They are told to stop thinking about the trauma, and the picture starts moving again.
The EEG during this time is shown to the left of the first dashed line in Fig 2. The top line is theta (red), the next is alpha (green), and the next of course is the anxious beta5 black line. In Neurofeedback Therapy in Saint Charles, MO, the CES is then turned on, which reduces beta 5, and the picture does not stop moving for the period of time between the dashed lines. This illustrates to the patient that the CES is reducing his anxiety.
The patient is then relaxed verbally and with calm imagery like the picture of the calm scene above or peaceful scene below. This is to reduce any possible negative effects of picturing the trauma. The succession is recorded on flash memory so they can practice Relaxation Therapy, along with the CES instrument at home.
