There is a study on oxygen and PTSD out of Israel.They have come to believe they can use a form of oxygen to decompression damage done on the brain from trauma. This could be a real game changer.
According to the research in Israel, about half of the people struggle with PTSD saw positive results from the research done. While this research is limited to mild cases among the Israel Defense Forces; it is beginning a discussion that would later be developed by researchers at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. (It seems they are underway.)
This could be a game changer for many.
Is Science good for PTSD?
Many people with faith struggle to believe that help could come from science. I do not believe that science has any answers but they can help lead the discussion. There is no hope found in labs and science is deeply rooted secularism.
In this case, people can learn from the study of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and it can part of the question on how to help someone that has been traumatized. It is just important to keep it in its context for reaching the answer.
The answer is still the gospel
People tend to put their trust in the science of this world. They have nothing to offer. The only answer for PTSD is the power of the Spirit and the presence of God. When the manifest presence comes, miracles happens and demon flee.
The development of HBOT is interesting and can help as we guide people to the presence of God where they can find complete freedom. It is not anti-science. We just know the only hope for humanity is in the gospel of Jesus, in the power of the Spirit and in the presence of God.
However, I do look forward to more research like hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
