*Trauma can create lasting debilitating physical and emotional harm.
*Some people are falsely diagnosed with epilepsy actually have PNES (Psychogenic Non Epileptic Seizures).
*EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a highly effective way to alleviate stress regarding traumatic memories.
