A dog or cat can help improve stress levels!
Picture it… after an exhausting day at work, Man's best friend, snuggling up next to you keeping you calm in times of stress. Suddenly the problems of the world seem to take a backseat as you enjoy getting your face licked, hearing their little heartbeat next to you, and that feeling of unconditional love only a pet can provide.
Pet therapy is beneficial for nearly anyone but for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) patients it is often just the right medicine. Be it a turtle, bird, dog or kitty, a pet takes your mind off depressive thoughts, gives purpose and helps you feel not so alone. When your puppy or kitten leans against you and plays lovingly by licking your hand, stress relief is never too far away.
Relax at Home with a Pet
Having a pet is also a good way to relax. We've known forever the benefits of pet therapy for aging or older homebound persons, why not for those who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder? The medications a physician would prescribe a PTSD patient would be aimed at relaxing, right? Why not try something natural first and save your body the bad effects that prescription drugs often offer.
PTSD can be a seriously debilitating illness which affects our energy and lifestyle. If a pet can and does improve our stress levels and helps us not feel all alone, then what are you waiting for? If you haven't already, run now quick and find a sweet pet and enjoy a more relaxed tomorrow.
Animal Assisted Therapy
In most cases, prescription medication is often administered before natural remedies are explored. While many hospitals have active animal assisted therapy programs other professionals have neglected the stern statistics which prove beyond a reasonable doubt the benefits of having an animal to care for in the house. Without question, pet therapy works for all types of anxiety or depression.
Along with pet therapy, counseling is one of the best ways to understand and assist yourself with any illness. Contact an advisor now to learn more how to relax into your future.
