Far too many of us - both military and civilian - fail to admit that we were weak enough to fall into the trap of suffering from the things we saw and experienced. And, when we do, the result is that doctors generally turn to what they know, a wide variety of medications designed to supposedly ease the unseen agony. There are other proven ways of treating PTSD. In Sonora Symphony, A tale about alternative treatments for PTSD, I write about a soldier suffering selective amnesia from a traumatic encounter in Afghanistan. Sick and tired of the poking and prodding and incessant questions, he leaves the medical hospital having no idea where he's going. He ends up in an all-night diner outside of Tuscon, Arizona where his spirit guides place him before a Native American elder who once served as a Green Beret. The elder takes him in and, through a combination of many different methods, helps erase the deep pain and allow the painful memories to return. An unusual twist is the soldier discovers he is half-Cherokee and undergoes a vision quest that enable him to find the path back to health - and a future. Sonora Symphony is available for reading on a Kindle or other electronic devices @ https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N8YZUDG (as well as all the other Amazon.com outlets) or in paperback @ https://www.amazon.com/Sonora-Symph...id=1480209557&sr=1-1&keywords=Sonora+Symphony My only request is that when you finish reading it, please return to the site and rate it or give it a brief review. I sincerely hope that someone - if no more than one - suffering the hidden agony of PTSD finds this to be a help.
