Managing PTSD

Managing PTSD

Cortisol is a hormone in the body that reacts to stress. Normally, cortisol levels increase during stressful times and decrease when stress is not present. Studies have shown that cortisol levels have an impact on the levels of two neurotransmitters, serotonin and dopamine. When cortisol is high, the neurotransmitters’ levels are low, and vice versa. Cortisol has been shown to damage and kill cells in the hippocampus (the brain area responsible for your episodic memory) and there is robust evidence that chronic stress causes premature brain aging (Stress excites brain cells to death). New research finds that an imbalance between two neurochemical systems in the brain is linked to posttraumatic stress disorder with the greater the imbalance, the more serious the symptoms.
