HeartMath: Some Help For PTSD

About a month or so ago, I received an email from a company called HeartMath.  Apparently, they have developed some new technology to help the service members who are returning from war with PTSD and other war-related stress.  They have set up a fund called the "HeartMath Military Service Appreciation Fund" to help the soldiers who suffer.

There are lot of resources these days to help our troops recover mentally and physically from the stresses and injuries of war... but no person is alike in the way they heal.  HeartMath sent me a free DVD that explained their program and it sounds like it is worth a shot.

I don't know a lot about PTSD because that isn't something we have had to deal with yet.  Ben hasn't gone through a deployment yet.  But my heart goes out to all our soldiers and if there is anything I do to help in any way at all, it is to spread the information I hear about and hope that the right people find it.  I sat down and watched the DVD and thought it was great, and so worth trying out!

If you are interested in checking out the HeartMath program, you can get a free DVD here.  You can like their Facebook page here as well, which includes other free resources.



On another note: Here are some other military related giveaways worth a quick mention:

Also another goodie:

From now through August 31st, dog owners are invited to visit the Dog Chow Families Know Facebook Tab and share stories of how their dog has affected their lives. Each time a story, photo or video is shared, Purina Dog Chow will donate $1, up to $25,000, to Patriot Rovers. “Save Dogs, Help Soldiers and Honor Heroes” is the motto of Patriot Rovers, a service dog organization that helps support our troops by training and providing companion dogs to veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury. Purina Dog Chow celebrates the importance all dogs have on families and have partnered with singing duo Thompson Square and their new puppy, Etta, to bring this community of dog loving families together. This program allows Dog Chow families to share the story of their dogs impact, while impacting the lives of brave Americans who put their lives on the line every day. The Dog Chow Families Know Facebook tab provides an easy and fun opportunity for your dog loving readers to show how their pet pooch strengthens their family, all while contributing to a great cause!
