10. A psychologist came up with a treatment to help people suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. By making them remember the traumatic event that occurred. But without them remembering the agony. Veterans who went through the treatment have less dismay and angst.

5. Prazosin was used to help patients with PTSD. It showed that the drug worked well and took affect immediately. Within days to weeks some patients had reoccuring nightmares when the medicine wore off says Simon King M.D.(Mayo Clinic 2012). Prazosin is a hypertension medication that's been used,following research that began a decade ago by some Veterans Administration hospitals to treat PTSD related nightmares(Mayo Clinic 2012)

4.Doctors and medical professionals at Veterans Affairs are handing out dangerous traquilizers such as Xanax and Valium to military service diagnosed with PTSD even though it could cause more harm then good (Heyes 2013). They have been given tranquilizers to more than 30 percent of veterans with PTSD (Heyes 2013). The tranquilizers given to them could make their symptoms worse instead of reducing the symptoms and cause addiction.

2.Exposure therapy helps people confront their angst. It shows them the ordeal they went through in a secure fashion. It uses mental imagery, writing, or visits to the place where the event happened.(www.nimh.gov/Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Cognitive restructuring helps people to understand their painful reflections. People may recall the experience distinctively than how it occurred. They may be overwhelmed with regret and humiliation about what they did not do.

1. Prolonged - exposure therapy (Apa.org/PTSD treatments grow in evidence effectiveness). Is what therapists use to try and help their patients to remember the type of experience that caused them to repress their memories from that certain time.

9.People who have PTSD suffer fro extreme nightmares about 71% do(Okolie 2014). The study will use a splint that goes in their mouth when they sleep it's suppose to help stop nightmares. Since people with PTSD have nightmares constantly they tend to grind and clench their teeth which can cause a toothache as well. The splint prevents nightmares and they begin to dream again.

6. Medical marijuana is a secured and more useful way to treat PTSD and anxiety(Walters 2013). The State of Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs has requested that people with PTSD should be allowed to purchase and use medical marijuana. Many veterans can not obtain it because it is illegal in most states. Some people are using Marinol a synthetic version of marijuana that includes THC to help people's symptoms.

3. There are three ways to treat PTSD psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and education and support.(Doblin/Manifesting Minds). The ambition is to phase out flashbacks, nightmares, and other symptoms to allow someone to forget about the event. Prolonged exposure (flooding) cognitive restructting, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy (Doblin/Manifesting Minds). This treatment is suppose to expose the affecting condition of the scary memories meditated by the amygdala.
