format_quoteI haven’t shared much about my trip to Idaho, (or the events right before I left).. Honestly not really with anyone other than my husband, my mom, one of my pastors, and my therapist. But the truth is in every sense of the cliche, that trip changed my life. I was in the very darkest low point of my life, lower even than the immediate aftermath of my daughter’s death. I was in terrible physical pain every day and I was not acting as the mother and wife I always wanted to be. But during the time I was there, I experienced healing that was so long overdue. This was accomplished in most part by intensive EMDR therapy.
format_quoteI was nervous that this was going to be a waste of time. I just stuck with the treatment plan and after a few days it really was working and didn’t even realize it. The EMDR was my favorite with AJ. He truly helped me a lot. Johnny took a lot of time with everyone during the whole duration of the camp. All the outdoor activities were great. AJ made me very hopeful for the future. I’m going to take all the therapy and coping skills I have learned and get my life back on track. I’m so very excited for the future and a fresh start.
format_quoteI’m one of the veterans that lives in Idaho and have PTSD as a result of Military Sexual Trauma in 1983 and 1984. I’ve received a tremendous amount of “talk therapy”and medications over the years, but nothing had been very effective in reliving my symptoms of PTSD. The various therapies I received at IHT have been HIGHLY EFFECTIVE in relieving my PTSD symptoms. In fact I’m stunned at how calm my mind is. I’m going to go as far to use the word “miracle” in describing my recovery because of how stress free I’m feeling. And the results of the therapies seem to be permanent. I’ve been feeling so great since my Intensive that I’ve been traveling and visiting friends and family that I hadn’t seen in years because my PTSD symptoms had been extremely debilitating.
format_quoteThis was an incredible experience. I feel I’ve received lots of help here. Everything this place offered was therapeutic.
format_quoteFor a long time I have been in a funk that I could not quite defeat. I tried all the wrong things, drinking, gamble, isolation, laziness. I had lost the ability to feel anything. I was neutral, could not get happy or sad. I was always on the offensive ready to strike at a moment’s notice. I could not sleep. I was over reacting. I hated to leave the house. This week has been amazing. The Brain Wave Optimization has helped me to relax and finally get some quality sleep. With my sleep in check, everything else seemed to fall in place. Great time! Don’t change anything!
format_quoteI really enjoyed my experience here. I’ve gained new ways of resolving my issues and allowing me new life to get back on track.
format_quoteI didn’t even know what I needed when I first came, but I was scared and hurting in so many ways. I learned so much about myself and gained more than I ever imagined. I am leaving with more confidence and more direction for my life moving forward. I know I wouldn’t be where I am emotionally without IHT.
format_quoteWonderful beyond comparison. I’ve been able to address and take on things that I’ve been needing to address for many, many years. This place allowed me to do it.
format_quoteHaving been in therapy for several years there is absolutely nothing else out there that comes close to this therapy.
format_quoteI was DONE! Leading up to this, for the last year, the 1st thing on my mind when I woke up was “DAMMIT! I’m alive!” The next, I would put my fingers in the shape of a pistol, put it under my chin, and pull the trigger. The last thing in my head before I fell asleep was “Please, I don’t want to wake up in the morning. I almost didn’t come. When we walked out of the airport, I wanted to find a mack truck to step in front of. I was tired. I had no feelings except for hate, discord and depression. The foundation of work has been laid out for me. I started to talk about things that had long been forgotten. Feelings that were buried so deep were uncovered. Not dug out but uncovered. I allowed myself to experience long forgotten experiences, things that were part of me, that defined, are part of my heritage that were brought back. I am not “fixed,” per say, yet but I see an avenue that has never been seen before. I’m actually feeling again, at least a bit. I CAN have a future for myself, one that doesn’t involve killing myself. I can look forward to a relationship, possibly a career, plainly a future.
