Acute PTSD very often is not treatable by any drugs, exercises and meditation. And it can last for 10, 20 and more years. That's why the FDA allowed MDMA, LSD, mushrooms etc.Crazy cloud wrote: ↑Thu May 06, 2021 4:41 pmI've listened a lot to Gabor, and a few other specialists on trauma treatment, and never heard any of them putting it as you do. In fact, I recall hearing that prolonged childhood traumas were more complicated than a single shock event.
Gabor mostly deals with addicts who has a history of trauma. But when the trauma happened long ago, in the past, that's not acute PTSD, like in some veterans. To treat addiction you must exert power of will, like Gabor says. Makes sense: it's only you who can stop shooting heroin up your veins. But no power of mind will help a guy who can't sleep and can't think and NOTHING helps. And usually those guys have a lot of willpower - the military.
That's why what he works with he calls not PTSD, but ACE, adverse childhood experiences.
Yes, complex PTSD, long abuse in the family etc. can be as hard as acute PTSD in veterans etc.
