Guest Bissex explains how quality nutrition and sleep are critical for PTSD sufferers to improve their condition and minimize negative symptoms. She recommended socialization with other PTSD patients, including support groups and online communities. Bissex explains how not all components offered by cannabis are necessarily desirable by PTSD patients, including the terpene alpha-pinene, which may prevent extinguishing traumatic memories standing in the say of recovery.
Bissex shared several statistics about PTSD in the United States, including intelligent strategies for dealing with this common condition that is suffered by more than eight million Americans and encompasses groups well outside of military combat veterans, including victims of sexual assaults and automobile accidents.
