A radical new treatment will be the featured topic of episode 972 of the Vietnam Veteran News Podcast. It was covered in a story found in The Herald-Tribune of Sarasota, Florida titled: Treating PTSD with headphones and sound waves gains supporters that was submitted by Billy Cox – Staff Writer. Post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD is one of the darker legacies of the Vietnam War. It is reported by the VA that everyday 20 veterans commit suicide, many of which are Vietnam Veterans.
There are many PTSD treatment methods being used today. Several have been mentioned on this podcast and include Dave Dunklee’s “Magic Box Project” using guitars and another program using arts and crafts. Apparently the methods currently being used to treat PTSD sufferers are not working well enough to cut down on the number of suicides veterans are committing.
There appears to be hope for successfully treating the pestiferous scourge of PTSD coming out of Sarasota, Florida. George Lindenfeld, a Navy Veteran and practitioner of a process known as Reconsolidation Enhancement by Stimulation of Emotional Triggers therapy, or RESET teamed up with psychotherapist George Rozelle, executive director of MindSpa Integrated Wellness Center In 2015. They believe PTSD not only affects the individual emotionally. They think it impacts cognitive thinking abilities as well.
They decided to see if RESET therapy could help PTSD sufferers. Lindenfeld applied the process to six volunteers seeking relief. Rozelle, a licensed technologist in QEEG brain-mapping, which graphically illustrates the effects of RESET therapy monitored the process.
The results have been phenomenally successful. One of the patients was Dan Cerone, a retired Army colonel who reported a 95% improvement in his PTSD symptoms.
This could be a viable solution for PTSD sufferers. It is recommended that anyone seeking help with this condition should contact George Lindenfeld through the Mindspa Wellness Center.
