Important statistics show that the common painkiller used during World War II and other such wars to relieve the dying can actually prevent Post Traumatic Stress Disorder by an increase of 50% chance as opposed to none for soldiers suffering from wounds. That means soldiers typically offered Morphine for their pain due to wounds suffered only hours ago actually stand a better chance of living a healthier life as opposed to other soldiers who end up suffering horribly from the disorder responsible for the mental suffering of 15% of our armed forces who had served in Iraq and Afghanistan. This discovery provides unbridled hope and prosperity to the prospect of facing the hideousness of war and death at such an alarming rate….
The revelation was brought on by the New England Journal of Medicine, suggesting that one single treatment can cease a terrifying moment of utter mortification from turning into a lifetime of Hell repeated over and over again, which is the essence of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It’s interesting to note that the small clinical trials and observations regarding Morphine have turned up evidence that opiates (which is what Morphine is) have the potential to disrupt the way the brain actually encodes traumatic memories, thereby inhibiting the possibility of Post Traumatic with much greater effect.
The treatment now can be applied for other certain events other than times of war involving the military–such as natural disasters, physical abuse, rape, and other traumatic accidents. It is now possible to decrease the chances of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder with the treatment of Morphine as prescribed by doctors and ER specialists dealing with catastrophes of the highest nature.
More and more treatments are being proven to help play a role in the eradication of the terror of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. For now, we have the “Hope-Maker” that is Morphine, a standard painkiller and true life-bringer.
