A survey carried out by the « Intersyndicale nationale des internes (ISNI) » among its members in France shows, on May 22, that they are already suffering from moderate to severe anxiety (72%), mood disorders (37%) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) (29.8%). Remember that medical interns are future doctors who represent approximately 44% of hospital doctors. And the discomfort felt by doctors quite easily foreshadows that of the general population.
These figures are impressive but not surprising in view of what the staff had to live, but also the population: the escalation caused by the incessant statements of the anxiety-provoking media, the alarming regular reports of the government, the large number of deaths announced among hospitalized people and the elderly, the various shortages in protective equipment, the incessant debates on the usefulness or not of masks… Let us add to this the effects of the lock down, and among them, the reports of conjugal and family violence on the increase.
trauma is obvious.
What is less talked about is that beyond the anxiety disorders, a part of the population that has been directly confronted with the epidemic (hospital staff, people working in essential services, in particular) in recent months have developed PTSD.
PTSD has long been treated as an anxiety disorder and treated as such with anxiety medications, antidepressants and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), with little success. In addition, it was believed that PTSD only affected soldiers returning from the front and a few categories known to be at risk (police, firefighters, train drivers).
It was not until 2013 that PTSD became a separate entity grouping together four main categories of symptoms in which we find anxiety and mood disorders, which amounts to saying that if we combine these two categories of symptoms, the rate of people suffering from PTSD is much higher than that given in this study and would be around 35 to 40%…
Let’s underline an important point: a person suffering from PTSD is by no means a psychologically fragile person, as many people might think. Scientifically, to date, we do not know why this important disorder manifests in one and not in the other, why it can appear fairly quickly after being exposed to trauma or years later …
One of the main sources of PTSD is how we feel about helplessness, misunderstanding of the situation, hierarchical decisions, shortage or lack of healthcare equipment due to the exceptional situation. This is like saying that the person is feeling an excessively important emotion: anger. This is a natural emotion and does no harm, provided that it can be expressed not against others but for oneself in order to free oneself from it. If this is not the case, then it remains blocked and it is this blockage that will lead people to suffer from the symptoms listed above and PTSD.
In addition to the many problems to which we have been exposed for the past three months, many of which have their source in the poor management of some of our political and health authorities, there is the problem of the state of health with which nursing staff are confronted
For years now, LTO3 has been helping people with anxiety, stress, panic states and their corollary, attention deficit. More than ever, while serious studies show that treatments with anxiety-relieving drugs, antidepressants and cognitive behavioral therapy often prove to be very unsuccessful, especially in people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder due to the Covid-19 pandemic, to information processing and to the doubts and worry it generates, LTO3 becomes an interesting alternative.
LTO3 has no side effects or addictions. It can be used as needed and stopped as soon as the symptoms go away. LTO3 is completely natural and approved by Health Canada and registered with the FDA.
