A cancer patient after two extensive surgeries for melanoma. He was also diagnosed with PTSD and referred to me for trauma therapy following home invasion and physical assault.

He was treated internationally in many hospitals and research institutions and consuming very high dosage of medications with no permanent relief. Since the condition developed after a bout of dysentery in his youth, his therapists were looking for purely physical causes but could not find any. I identified hyper vigilance typical to PTSD stemming from his initial life threatening illness and evidence that the severe attacks were invariably triggered by stress.
