CBD Hemp oil can help the patient recover from electroshock
Clinical uses of CBD Hemp oil include: anxiety, digestive issues, depression, endocrine disorders, seizures, migraines, nausea, neurodegeneration, PTSD, sleep disorders, stress, and traumatic brain injury. I like Gaia because they do well as regards quality control.
The recommended use for this oil is 15 drops morning and evening until you feel normal. Shake well before use and hold it under your tongue for 90 seconds. I have six other remedies to recommend, no apologies. Electroshock is devastating and tricky to recover from. A complete remedy set will be explained soon.
The trauma of repeated electroshock strengthens depressive symptoms (fatigue, insomnia). The patient becomes increasingly hard of hearing.
Electroshock always induces a coffea state in the patient (as described here). They will find coffee less pleasurable, more problematic. The remedy coffea is promising for relief of this iatrogenic effect. The shocked person may wish to not become a chocoholic.
Acupuncture can often help recovery from shock treatment. Many acupuncturists are also skilled with herbal medicine, a source of inexpensive remedies where the clinical trials began thousands of years ago and never stopped (incredibly better than what passes for good meds in the US, just look at the crap ads on TV … those greedy idiots don’t know that by citing an endless stream of abysmal side effects, the viewers unconsciously sets themselves up for failure at their first dose). Since 1993, acupuncturists have been my teachers on occasion (as I learned intermediate Jin Shin Do) and I have studied with them for CEUs required for my license.
- It is especially vital for a shocked patient to improve their adrenal function (almost always diminished aka adrenal fatigue) and a good acupuncturist (see Marc below) can be a great help with that.
I have lately been meeting with Dr Mark Cutler as we share perspectives about electroshock and its sequelae. Fortunately, he is experienced in treating PTSD and people electroshocked, so for folks in the Raleigh NC area, a remarkable resource (for depression and many health aspects, not just PTSD). I will share here later, the fruits of our dialog.
As shown here and here, electroshock in the USA is commonly done with the patient reclining or flat on their back as on a gurney. The posture is usually symmetric. The actual position used is a possible imprint, and becomes a likely imprint after subsequent electroshock sessions. After electroshock, a similar position is often used in the recovery room as the anaesthetic wears off and the patient awakens (they usually just roll you from a treatment area to a larger recovery room).
When the patient goes home after treatment they may experience restless sleep or notice that other sleep positions (not reclined or not flat on their back; other than that used in electroshock) seem preferable. So as the weeks and months pass; upon going to bed, they notice gradually being drawn to side sleeping or tummy sleeping or sleeping with a bent knee. Any asymmetric sleeping posture may be helpful. For example those who were treated while flat may sleep better in a recliner than in a bed.
Recently a person wrote me about their having had ~ 15 electroshock treatments and can only recall the last one. After that 15th treatment they awoke while smelling Lysol. Since then any smell of Lysol rekindles the memory of that last treatment … an imprint, a hallmark of PTSD. As their life unfolds, they may notice other triggers, possibly even from a treatment (1-14) otherwise forgotten.
As mentioned at the site, it is not possible to predict in full detail how an individual later reacts to electroshock. It’s idiosyncratic, some of what follows in the months/years that follow depends upon what they are thinking or doing while being shocked.
Consider the following possible symptom set (symptoms listed in no particular order):
- being anxious, irritable, panic attack, feeling stressed, diplopia (side by side), fitful cough, hiccups, sneezing, sensitive skin, headache, migraine, leg cramp, twitching
If you had electroshock and begin to experience any of the above or more of the above, you can consider using the cell salt Mag phos. The link is to recent notes and great detail is here. An easy help would be to include these foods (being mindful of possible food allergy) in your normal diet: brazil nuts white beans wheat soybeans corn walnuts peanuts peas.
