An engineering perspective on post-traumatic stress

Learn how a combination of experience, study and good fortune led to the successful development of our Post Traumatic Stress protocols. Discover the vicious cycle that occurs when 3 seemingly unrelated aspects come together within the Body. At this point, we lose the capacity to "self heal" and get stuck in a compromised "fight or flight" state.
