This Study Shows  MDMA Therapy Could Help PTSD 

There is still plenty to learn about MDMA therapy, but psychedelic drugs are showing tremendous potential for helping to treat a range of mental health issues.

One of the more common mental health issues is undoubtedly PTSD, which became a medically recognized disorder as recently as the 1970’s but affects an inordinate number of people around the world.

Once thought of as an issue for soldiers following war and combat traumas, it is now a major concern for millions and often presents itself after experiencing a major traumatic event.

What Is PTSD?

It is a serious mental health condition that people develop after experiencing or witnessing major trauma such as a life-threatening event, a natural disaster, or a car accident.

People who suffer from PTSD all report very similar symptoms. These include the following:

- Depression - Anxiety - Feeling unsafe - Problems with sleep - Disturbing dreams and nightmares

The Symptoms To Look For

1. Re-experiencing or re-living the event 2. Avoiding situations that remind you of the event 3. Feeling keyed up 4. Negative changes in beliefs and feelings

Recognizing and acknowledging the symptoms as early as possible is the only way to tackle PTSD, as the longer the person is suffering, the harder it is to get out of the vicious cycle.

Current Treatment Methods

Existing PTSD treatments include different types of trauma psychotherapy (talk therapy) or medication.
