PTSD advice from my friend Cedar McDaniels

by Daniel Ingram

Dr. Mario E. Martinez is a clinical neuropsychologist has BURST training which is similar to the sprinting I did to reset my nervous system.

Dr. Richard Brown (Harvard psychiatrist)- the healing power of breath has very SAFE and effective breathing meditations for trauma....they are readily available on vimeo and youtube.....a wonderful alternative to vipassna meditation for the nervous system impaired individual.....

For anyone with severe psychological illnesses such as bipolar, psychosis (which I don't have) this guy seems very honest, kind, informed and successful....he has some downloadable meditations that are terrific.... he is very responsive to emails and helped me with gut issues......

 -- the first thing to do with anyone with trauma is not to psychoanalyz or attempt vipassna meditations BUT to reset, support the nervous symstem.....the nervous system is the mechanism that makes trauma  irretractable.....so the nervous system needs to be addressed ....first and foremost ...not the mind and not ths spirit.....this of course is my opinion and what has worked for me......I wish I new this 30 years ago!!
