Dealing with the effects of a traumatic experience can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex PTSD (C-PTSD). PTSD is a severe mental health condition that affects many people worldwide. C-PTSD is a relatively new terminology and is often used interchangeably with PTSD. Although both are types of PTSD, C-PTSD is a more severe form and tends to be a chronic and long-lasting condition.
If you or a loved one has complex PTSD, Springfield Wellness Center can help. Our facility provides comprehensive services, including NAD treatment and therapy, to improve overall mental health and well-being. Contact our office today at 844.334.4727 to schedule NAD for PTSD and take the first step toward a happier, healthier life.
Understanding Complex PTSD
Complex PTSD is a severe and chronic condition that is experienced by individuals who have experienced prolonged trauma, such as physical or emotional abuse during childhood, or repeatedly experienced traumatic events over time. Individuals with C-PTSD have similar symptoms to PTSD. They also experience additional symptoms such as difficulty trusting people, feeling disconnected from others, emotional regulation difficulties, and a lack of control over their emotions, thoughts, and behavior.
C-PTSD can severely impact daily activities, including work, relationships, and overall well-being. Individuals with C-PTSD may have difficulty sleeping, have nightmares, and can experience flashbacks of the traumatic events that they have experienced. These symptoms can be debilitating and can lead individuals to isolate themselves from others.
Types of PTSD
PTSD can occur in individuals who have experienced a life-threatening or traumatic event such as a natural disaster, physical or sexual assault, or combat. However, different types of PTSD can affect individuals differently:
Acute Stress Disorder (ASD)
Individuals who experience ASD will have PTSD-like symptoms but will share them for a shorter time. ASD symptoms occur within one month of exposure to a traumatic event and typically last less than one month.
Individuals with Simple PTSD will experience PTSD symptoms for an extended period, but not as long as those with C-PTSD. They may experience flashbacks, anxiety, and depression, but they typically do not have the additional symptoms of C-PTSD.
Individuals who have PTSD alongside other mental health conditions, such as depression or anxiety, have comorbid PTSD. This can make it challenging to diagnose and treat, as symptoms overlap with other states.
NAD+ Therapy for PTSD
NAD therapy has shown significant promise for treating PTSD, including C-PTSD. NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a coenzyme crucial for energy conversion within the body’s cells. It has been shown to improve overall brain function, reduce inflammation, and help repair damaged cells. Additionally, NAD+ therapy has been used to help individuals struggling with addiction.
Many individuals who come to Springfield Wellness Center for NAD+ therapy are struggling to cope with the symptoms of PTSD. NAD therapy has been shown to help reduce anxiety, improve cognitive function, and improve overall well-being. It accomplishes these goals by increasing serotonin, dopamine, and other neurotransmitters within the brain, which help regulate mood and emotional states.
