I don't understand why PTSD is referred to as a disease. A disease causes something whereas, PTSD is the result of something. PTSD is the living remnants of an external experience where the transfer/degree/release of the energy of that experience remains trapped inside of the constitution of the person. PTSD is a condition, its' very presence is not the cause of the condition. Maybe I am splitting hairs between disease and condition or disorder but given my clinical understanding of these words, disease is not correct. If alcoholism is a disease because the implication is the individual carried a predisposition to addiction, then what is the pre-disposition for PTSD to be considered a disease? Is that mere fact of having been born. Ergo, your alive, so you are predisposed to having PTSD created within the energical frequencies of being...I don't think that makes any sense.
