Understanding the Role of Complementary and Integrative Health in Treating PTSD
The Bob Woodruff Foundation‘s “Understanding the Role of Complementary and Integrative Health in Treating PTSD,” below, presents the research base and limitations of complementary and integrative health (CIH) as treatment for PTSD.
As CIH increases in popularity among veterans and service providers, it is important to consider what the evidence indicates and how best to offer this option to veterans with PTSD. The Department of Veterans Affairs has recognized the benefits of CIH; individual veterans should determine the path of treatment suitable for their particular needs.
The Foundation will continue to monitor studies exploring the efficacy of CIH.
