One way to help veterans with PTSD? Lots of yoga
from The Washington Post
Army Lt. Col. John Thurman lost 26 co-workers in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the Pentagon. He suffered severe smoke inhalation while trapped in the building for 25 minutes. He spent a week in the hospital recovering. In the months after the attacks, Thurman found he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Thurman's PTSD meant he wasn't sleeping for months after the attack, even with the prescription drugs he was taking. And his pulmonary function hadn't returned to full capacity. But when Thurman started doing yoga, it "made all the difference in the world in my ability to deal with the stress and my injury from that day."
