Thank you for the research articles. As a behavioral health specialist, I was gathering information on SGB before recommending it for PTSD treatment.

@cmbrow I will say that was rather sneaky. At least you fessed up as to why you are looking for information. At best I am bamboozled. Must be the PTSD.

I did my first block today. I haven't felt this great in years, my ptsd got so bad I also got FND so I have pseudo seizures. My pseudo seizures already arent nearly as intense or as long as they were.
