Lack of sleep and PTSD:  What you need to know now.

There is an unmistakable relationship between how well you sleep and the symptoms experienced with PTSD.

Nearly 1 in 10 U.S. adults will be diagnosed with symptoms of PTSD at some point in their life, with woman twice as likely as men. If you’ve experienced a traumatic event and are also having trouble sleeping, you may be suffering from the debilitating effects of PTSD.

PTSD and sleep:
What the research tells us.

Research has demonstrated many connections between restful sleep and PTSD. If you have been diagnosed with PTSD, it’s more than likely you will have sleep issues. Achieving restful sleep again can alleviate PTSD symptoms. We now also know that too little sleep can actually make PTSD symptoms worse.

One sure way to determine the effectiveness of any therapy you may be receiving for PTSD

is how quickly treatments restore restful sleep or how much your sleep quality has improved since beginning therapy. Even for those without a PTSD diagnoses, restful sleep can help guard against the impact of traumatic life events we may face.

Treating sleep complaints as a primary symptom rather than a secondary one will dramatically improve the outcomes for all PTSD sufferers.

You can’t heal if you can’t sleep.

Cereset® can help! Trauma adversely affects brain balance. Sometimes it happens quickly, other times it may take years. The brain is the organ of central command, it drives everything. When it becomes unbalanced due to extreme stress, an individual can experience symptoms associated with PTSD. If the brain is not reorganized, it becomes an impediment to restful sleep. Cereset relaxes the brain, allowing it to restore its own normal balance to help alleviate symptoms of PTSD.

During the Cereset session process, restful sleep is typically achieved in 3 weeks, with many experiencing it in just 3 days. Cereset Research® has an incredible track record of successes relieving people from the debilitating effects of PTSD. Clinical trials conducted with civilians, the military and first responders have demonstrated the benefits of Cereset conclusively.

The Cereset solution.

Relax. Rebalance. Reset.

The Cereset® Experience is a non-invasive process using brain initiated sound to relax the brain and allow it to reset and free itself. A rebalanced brain helps you experience more restful sleep, providing relief from the symptoms of PTSD. High resolution brain sensors placed on the scalp record precise real-time brain rhythms. Cereset’s proprietary algorithms translate those brain rhythms into engineered tones that create your own unique BrainEcho®. You’ll hear that echo through a pair of ear buds. Your brain in effect sees its own reflection enabling it to fully relax and reset itself to its natural balance. During the Cereset process, restful sleep is typically achieved in 3 weeks, with many experiencing it in just 3 days.

From the moment you arrive for your session the soothing environment will begin to relax you.

An initial series of four sessions jump start the process of helping your brain rebalance itself.
