At HomeopathyOne, we treat PTSD rapidly, permanently with less medicine.


Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) involves intense, unpleasant, and dysfunctional reactions beginning after an overwhelming traumatic event. Events that threaten death or serious injury can cause intense, long-lasting distress.

Affected people may re-live the event, have nightmares, and avoid anything that reminds them of the event. (See also Overview of Trauma- and Stress-Related Disorders.)

When terrible things happen, many people are lastingly affected. In some, the effects are so persistent and severe that they are debilitating and constitute a disorder. Generally, events likely to cause PTSD are those that invoke feelings of fear, helplessness, or horror. Combat, sexual assault, and natural or man-made disasters are common causes of PTSD. However, it can result from any experience that feels overwhelming and life threatening, such as physical violence or an automobile crash.

It is not known why the same traumatic event may cause no symptoms in one person and lifelong PTSD in another. Nor is it known why some people witness or experience the same trauma many times over years without developing PTSD, but then develop it following an apparently similar episode.

Post traumatic stress disorder affects almost 9% of people sometime during their life, including childhood (see Acute and Post traumatic Stress Disorders in Children and Adolescents). About 4% have it during any 12-month period.

Post traumatic stress disorder lasts for more than 1 month. It may be a continuation of acute stress disorder or develop separately up to 6 months after the event.

Chronic post traumatic stress disorder may not disappear but often becomes less intense over time even without treatment. Nevertheless, some people remain severely disabled by the disorder.

Our individuality or uniqueness as a person, which is influenced by our genetic make-up, upbringing and life situations, is the reason why some people experience PTSD more than others. Homeopathy understands and values this uniqueness.

Do you know …

About half of people with PTSD may recover in three months without treatment.

Homeopathy can help you overcome PTSD quickly and permanently.

The land of healing lies within, radiant with happiness that is blindly sought in a thousand outer directions.

Causes of post traumatic stress disorder

The causes of post traumatic stress disorder are not fully known, but the following events may be involved:

  • such as having a serious injury or being threatened with death.
  • witnessing others being seriously injured, killed or threatened with death; or learning of traumatic events that occurred to close family members or friends.

These events may be experienced directly or indirectly. People may have experienced a single trauma or, as is common, multiple traumas.

Symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder

People with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) typically have symptoms from each of the following four categories:

Intrusion symptoms (the event repeatedly and uncontrollably invades their thoughts)

The traumatic event may repeatedly reappear in the form of involuntary, unwanted memories or recurrent nightmares. Some people have flashbacks, in which they relive events as if they were actually happening rather than simply being remembered. People may also experience intense reactions to reminders of the event. A combat veteran’s symptoms might be triggered by fireworks, for example, whereas those of a robbery victim may be triggered by seeing a gun in a movie.

Avoidance of anything that reminds them of the event

People persistently avoid things—activities, situations, or people—that are reminders of the trauma. For example, they may avoid entering a park or an office building where they were assaulted or avoid speaking to people of the same race as their assailant. They may even attempt to avoid thoughts, feelings, or conversations about the traumatic event.

Negative effects on thinking and mood

People may be unable to remember significant parts of the traumatic event (called dissociative amnesia). People may feel emotionally numb or disconnected from other people. Depression is common, and people show less interest in previously enjoyed activities. How people think about the event may become distorted, leading them to blame themselves or others for what happened. Feelings of guilt are also common. For example, they may feel guilty that they survived when other people did not. They may feel only negative emotions, such as fear, horror, anger, or shame, and may be unable to feel happy or satisfied or love.

Changes in alertness and reactions

People may have difficulty falling asleep or concentrating. They may become excessively vigilant for warning signs of risk. They may be easily startled. People may become less able to control their reactions, resulting in reckless behaviour or angry outbursts.

Other symptoms

Some people develop ritual activities to help reduce their anxiety. For example, people who were sexually assaulted may bathe repeatedly to try to remove the sense of being unclean.

Many people with PTSD try to relieve their symptoms with alcohol or recreational drugs and develop a substance use disorder.

PTSD can prevent people from doing what they usually enjoy and starts to affect the physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. They may develop various physical symptoms. They may stop their activities, withdraw socially, and become preoccupied with health. The mind-body complex is now fully affected and becomes a vicious circle which keeps an individual in suffering mode.

Diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder

Doctors diagnose post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) when

  • People have been exposed directly or indirectly to a traumatic event.
  • Symptoms have been present for 1 month or longer.
  • Symptoms cause significant distress or significantly impair functioning.
  • People have some symptoms from each of the categories of symptoms associated with PTSD (intrusion symptoms, avoidance symptoms, negative effects on thinking and mood, and changes in alertness and reactions).

A doctor’s thorough evaluation which includes physical; mental; emotional; social health and environmental influence. Through this evaluation doctors try to identify the causes, factors modifying it and the impact of such symptoms on the daily life quality of a person.

PTSD often is not diagnosed because it causes such varied and complex symptoms. Also, the presence of a substance use disorder can distract attention from the PTSD. When diagnosis and treatment are delayed, PTSD can become chronically debilitating.

Doctors also check to see whether symptoms could result from use of a drug or another disorder that can be inter-related, such as anxiety disorder, depression or a sleep disturbance. Doctors also ask whether relatives have had similar symptoms, because disorders tend to run in families.

Doctors ask how the person feels; eats; sleeps and goes through a routine day. Identifying these changes is critical because they can make the situation better or worse and, if present, must be treated for the disorder to be treated effectively.

Homeopathic Treatment of post traumatic stress disorder

After a thorough evaluation, each case is worked upon and a set of similar medicines is derived, from which one single medicine which fits the patient’s presentation at that time, in relevant intensity and repetitions is given.

Some need only one medicine throughout the duration of treatment and some need few in sequence one after another across the treatment.

Timely follow-ups are essential to keep moving forward towards the goal of treatment and to identify, manage and overcome any obstacles to the outcome.

Stressful events alter our identity while we suffer from PTSD. Dr. Twara Aashish uses classical homeopathy to cure and transform the lives of people.

Quick Facts


Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is when memories of a highly upsetting event keep coming back, over and over, to invade your thoughts. This lasts for more than a month and can go on for much longer. These memories can be very scary, realistic, and upsetting.

  • PTSD starts within 6 months of a highly upsetting event
  • Life-threatening events can cause intense, long-lasting upset, worry, and nervousness
  • You may relive the event in your mind, have nightmares, or avoid anything that reminds you of the event

PTSD can happen when you (or someone you are close to) experience a highly upsetting event. You may feel haunted by the intense fear, helplessness, or horror you or someone else felt during the event.

Events that can cause PTSD to include:

  • Being in war or combat
  • Experiencing or witnessing rape and violence
  • Natural disasters (such as a hurricane)
  • Serious car crashes

About 9 out of 10 people will have PTSD sometime in their lifetime. Children can also have PTSD.

PTSD has several types of symptoms:

  • Intrusion symptoms
  • Avoiding anything that reminds you of the event
  • Negative thinking or mood
  • Changes in alertness

Intrusion symptoms include:

  • Repeated, unwanted memories of the event keep coming back
  • Nightmares of the event
  • Flashbacks (reliving your memory of the event as though it's currently happening)
  • Strong emotional or physical distress when something reminds you of the event (such as getting in a boat after a near-drowning accident)

Symptoms of negative thinking include:

  • Not being able to remember important parts of the event (dissociative amnesia)
  • Feeling emotionally numb or disconnected from other people
  • Depression—feeling tired and sadly most of the time, or having a hard time sleeping or paying attention
  • Less interest in activities you used to like
  • Feelings of guilt about the event
  • Feeling only negative emotions (such as fear, anger, or shame)

Symptoms of a change in alertness and reactions include:

  • Hard time falling asleep or paying attention
  • Easily scared or constantly watching out for danger
  • Giving little thought to putting yourself in a dangerous situation
  • Angry outbursts

You, and the whole of you, are the only reason why you experience the disease differently from others.

It is

  • your genetic predisposition and
  • your unique response system

These are constantly evolving as you grow through life. They are constituted and modified by

  • your upbringing and
  • your experience of different life situations around you

Technically the way you are wired and the way you learn and change through life is what makes you unique. This is the main reason why people experience diseases differently.

Homeopathy values this uniqueness of yours, and therefore there are no medicines for disease conditions but for the person who is experiencing those disease conditions. This is the basic reason that allows a homeopath to prescribe a single medicine at a given time, even for multiple disease conditions.

Doctors look for a connection between your symptoms and any highly upsetting events you or your loved ones have experienced. They ask how it stops you from doing daily activities.
