It warms my heart to see and listen to the YouTube video interview with Hugo Patricinio. It is amazing to hear about his commitment to yoga and the results. What captured my attention is how yoga helped him relieve anger and insomnia, two of the most troublesome symptoms of PTSD. What is really encouraging is the benefits of yoga have nothing to do with medications. With professional assistance from a yoga trainer, Hugo maximized his experience and minimized the potential of injury. In my book, Reconciliation: A Son’s Story, it is clear that PTSD can become a lifetime of pain when a family lives without the knowledge and accessibility of consistent treatment plans, including yoga, psychotherapy, and medications recommended by mental health professionals.
Thanks to Denise Dallas for sharing this video with me on Facebook so that the reach of this information can be extended to a wider audience.
