PTSD, Migraines, Alexithymia, BDNF and the Case for the Relevance of Emotional Literacy



PTSD and Migraines are linked if you have either, you are more likely to develop the other unfortunately, we do not know why this is the case. The pathophysiology of both conditions are poorly understood and multifactorial in nature. Dr. Schuppe explains some of the research on the two and suggests possible implications in the treatment of trauma.
