Happinessguru's Blog

Early findings from the Oregon Health & Science University  study show meditation has helped ease Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms.
Iraq War veteran Jeff Bounds, 46, of Vancouver says he “noticed a big difference” when he tried meditation. Bounds served two tours in Iraq. He was badly hurt, and spent more than a hear in the hospital.  He said his PTSD was overwhelming at times.
“You’re always looking (over your shoulder). I still am (getting) nightmares, flashbacks,” Bounds said.
Bounds said classes to help with PTSD did not work, so in August, he enrolled in the small Oregon Health & Science University study.   Bounds saidl meditation changed his life.  He said it helps him daily “stay present in stressful situations.”
