Can Technology Diagnose Us And Help Us Heal?

At some point in our lives, we’ve all wanted it; that magic medicine that cures our ailments or to find that one person who miraculously knows what’s wrong and how stop the misery.  Whether it’s from the everyday virus that floats around or something much deeper such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, or Bipolar Disorder, we have all made that agonizing plea for “it” to just simply GO AWAY!

The world of medicine has always been trial and error in many regards. And, treatment is even more complex and difficult when it surrounds mental illness. We are all wired differently and what works for one person does not always work for another. The plain, simple explanation is that our brains and bodies our specific to each of us. Our genetics vary and sometimes a prescription that is intended to help us doesn’t help us at all. And, even if a medication or therapy works for the majority of people, what happens if you’re in the minority? Most likely, you are continually tossed from one treatment plan to another while ingesting various pills without really knowing for sure if any of it will help or not.

So, wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to actually see what our body or brain needs and be able to produce our miracle cure on the spot? Well, I’ve recently discovered that this idea might not be too far in the horizon! You see, there is a new technology that is being used by the military to diagnose and treat veterans suffering from PTSD by using a simple brain scan. And, it’s available to civilians as well. Want to learn more?

My guests this week on YOUR LIFE AFTER TRAUMA are Brian Harvey and George Carpenter. Brian has had the extraordinary benefit of using this brain technology to help find the proper medications to treat his Bipolar disorder. George Carpenter is the CEO of CNS Response, the supplier of the brain scan. George will discuss how this breakthrough has the potential to help ten of thousands of people by eliminating the guesswork in diagnosis and treatment.

Join us on air, Wednesday, 3/13/13 at 2pm EST, for a deeper discussion about this topic.
