June is PTSD awareness Month

June is PTSD awareness (Post traumatic Stress Disorder). The campaign is mainly for our veterans however I would like to extend it to anyone who has had a traumatic experience.


Get moving doing a physical activity!

Our physical activity is #Aikido to promote balance, mental and physical health.

We support the National Center for PTSD, #VAPTSD



FYI:

What is a traumatic experience? Adverse childhood experiences, accidents, physical and mental abuses.

The science of PTSD and toxic stress shows that if it is left untreated, the life expectancy is 19 years shorter than that of individuals with none.



Toxic stress could lead:


Diabetes

cholesterol

Obesity

Auto Immune disease

Heart issues

Addiction

Depression

Anxiety


PTSD is treatable. A consensus of scientific data demonstrates that early detection and intervention are associated with improved outcomes related to toxic stress.
