WILL HELP WITH PTSD
Understanding the Issues
Neurologists have found that PTSD patients appear to have lower baseline cortisol levels and a decreased cortisol response to stress.
Decreased levels often lead to a feeling of emotional numbness.
People who suffer from PTSD often crave the “high” that is caused by doing something thrilling or dangerous in order to “feel something.”
These veterans and first responders will continuously participate in high risk behaviors in order to get that high.
Leading them to failed relationships with loved ones, substance abuse, sexual behavior changes,
or creating their own stress by becoming confrontational.
Making a Difference
Adrenaline is a huge part of powersports, just as it's a huge part of surviving combat.
Adrenaline also plays a large role in enhancing memory to emotional events.
Voluntary exercises involving an adrenaline rush may facilitate the "learning" of safety and the consolidation of new, positive memories.
Elevating the veteran or first responders adrenaline and cortisol levels during a voluntary exercise (powersports) can help the body recover better after stress.
Like everything in life, moderation is better than going to these extremes alone, and balance needs to be kept between different aspects of our lives.
