Many people will experience a traumatic event at some point in their lives. During dangerous situations, the brain’s natural response is known as the “fight, flight, freeze” response because during those situations there are three natural reactions that our bodies have: we can either decide to fight, run away or just completely freeze in the face of danger. Once the danger has passed, the stress hormone cortisol is released and normal condition is resumed but PTSD sufferers believe they are reliving the original trauma and their memory of the event may be vivid and the brain’s natural process is disrupted. Any situation can remind a person of original unprocessed trauma and stress hormones could be triggered.
