Post–traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) a psychological reaction occurring after experiencing a highly stressful event (such as wartime combat, physical violence, or a natural disaster) that is usually characterized by depression, anxiety, flashbacks, recurrent nightmares, and avoidance of reminders of the event.
Although PTSD is typically associated with soldiers who have suffered trauma on the battlefield, it is also commonly seen in civilians who have experienced sexual assault, life-threatening events or disasters, childhood trauma, injury, disease, or suddenly losing a loved one.
How We Help
At Alleviant Health Centers, we focus on finding and healing the root of your PTSD and creating a path of healing. We customize your plan of care to you and your unique situation. It may consist of a variety of tools, such as talk-therapy, medications, lifestyle coaching, ketamine therapy, or mindfulness training. We do everything possible to help you reach health and balance.
Traditionally, medical professionals have separated the mind from the body and treated them as two separate entities. Now, we are just beginning to understand the significant interplay of the mind, body, and spirit. The gut-brain connection is now a well-established determination of mental health. Over the past five years, there has been a significant shift from a stagnant, traditional, medication-based approach, to holistic, integrated psychiatry.
Holistic treatments focus on non-medication based healing solutions, such as lifestyle management, nutritional supplementation, mindfulness, and massage therapy. Integrated psychiatry, on the other hand, coordinates multiple medical specialties and nutritional science to improve illness.
In our therapy, we combine holistic and integrative medicine, which allows us to provide you with a unique treatment plan based upon your genetics, nutritional status, and biochemical assay. This approach addresses the fundamental source of your depression and restores your natural state of balance and peace.
“You don’t have to live with this struggle any longer.”

Ketamine Infusion Therapy
