Women have a much higher risk of developing Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This health issue is related to the metabolism of а specific protein responsible for the estrogen balance.
The psychological state of the women is closely related to genetic processes. There are many researches that show that a lot of modern diseases are caused by stress.
Such illnesses are depression, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, certain gastrointestinal disorders, certain forms of cancer and even the aging process itself.
The stress can increase the frequency and intensity of headaches, bouts of asthma, and fluctuations in blood sugar levels in diabetic patients.
There is scientific evidence that people exposed to PTSD are more prone to colds and other infections than those who live in a peaceful environment.
Excessive psychological stress can cause both temporary (transient) and long-term (chronic) symptoms of a serious psychiatric condition known as PTDS.
The uncontrollable, unpredictable and chronic stress has a huge impact on our physical and mental health. Stress can begin in the womb and continue to influence our entire life.
One of the pathological consequences of PTSD is helplessness that leads to hopelessness and clinical depression. The PTSD can cause diseases such as chronic anxiety, high blood pressure and many heart diseases.
Searching medical help is very important, in case you have PTSD symptoms. Often the victims of PTDS don’t really know they have it, so consulting with a doc will be a good decision.
Of course, our nature has provided mechanisms to cope with PTSD, but if you don’t have the will to get better, even drugs against depression and chronic anxiety, prescribed by a doctor could have the opposite effect.
Therefore, any PTSD medication should be used carefully and under the supervision of a specialist. The PTSD can be healed by special anti-stress programs, but they also should be prescribed by your doc.
