September is "National Preparedness Month". Dr. Prather was recently invited to a seminar by FEMA to help get the word out about being prepared to respond to disasters. In this episode, you'll learn:

--The 5 Core Capabilities that help us to successfully prepare for a disaster response.

--How being prepared for a disaster helps to mitigate trauma and the effects of a disaster.

--Why FEMA has asked Chiropractic Acupuncturists to volunteer in case a national disaster occurs. And the role Chiropractors and Acupuncturists played in helping first responders after the 9-11 disaster.

--How there is an immediate response to Chiropractic and Acupuncture care that you can't achieve with drugs or any other type of therapy: reduction of fatigue, lowered fear response, better mental clarity, improved cognitive ability, and the ability to sleep.

--Why Acupuncture helps the body normalize in "a way that almost nothing else can" to switch it from the Fight-Flight mode to a Rest-Digest mode. And why Dr. Prather says that everyone who has a traumatic experience shows the need for Chiropractic adjustment.

--The funny story about how FEMA called up an Acupuncturist to respond to Democrats who had Post-traumatic Response to the 2016 election.

--The way Acupuncture can help take a victim of trauma out of a catatonic state in the most disastrous of situations.

--How trauma causes physiological changes that, left untreated, can become permanent and change the shape of the brain and how the endocrine system works. Plus, how military medics now are being trained to do battleground Acupuncture.

--The symptoms of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.

--How the effects of PTSD can be reversed, even after having it for long-term, if you get the proper treatment. And the proper treatments you should consider.
