MeRT Treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Discover Healing and Peace of Mind
Post-traumatic stress disorder can make every day feel like the same uphill battle. From frightening flashbacks to suicidal thoughts, PTSD can make you feel like a shell of your former self. If you’ve tried every medication and therapy recommended to you and you still can’t find relief, there’s still hope. MeRT can balance your brain and restore your mind.
Quick Overview of PTSD
Post-traumatic stress disorder is a mental health condition that can develop after someone experiences or witnesses an incredibly stressful event. For people with PTSD, those feelings of fear and anxiety last long after the event has passed and may even worsen with time. Common events that trigger PTSD include military combat, physical or sexual abuse, the death of a loved one, car accidents, and natural disasters.
Almost all people will experience some difficulties adjusting to normal life after experiencing a traumatic event. However, PTSD occurs when symptoms, such as nightmares, jumpiness, and intrusive thoughts, last for longer than a month and start to become debilitating.
Post-traumatic stress is a very serious condition. Approximately 27% of people who’ve been diagnosed with PTSD have attempted suicide at some point in their life. And PTSD can lead to other issues, such as relationship problems, poor work outcomes, substance abuse, and depression.

PTSD Disrupts the Structure of Your Brain
For someone experiencing PTSD, you might believe that if you just wait a little longer or try a bit harder that the feelings of fear, anger, and depression will pass. The reality is that PTSD is not all in your mind. You cannot simply will yourself to get over your trauma and feel yourself again. And that’s because the root of your symptoms starts with your brain.
While your body’s emergency response can help you effectively handle short-term trauma, it is not designed to be active for prolonged periods of time. However, with PTSD, your brain is constantly on alert. Most people with PTSD have an overly active amygdala and decreased function in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex.
With a quantitative EEG, we find that most people with PTSD have brainwave disruptions in the brain’s frontal lobe. Normalizing this brainwave activity is the key to healing your mind and finally experiencing peace within.
How MeRT Can Help Treat PTSD
Many people with PTSD rely on medication to minimize their symptoms and get a decent night’s sleep. And while therapy can help people process traumatic events in their lives, it only solves half the problem. PTSD physically changes the structure of your brain, and you need to address that to see long-lasting results.
This is where Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MeRT) comes in. It’s a pain-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment that uses magnetic waves to stimulate targeted areas of your brain and fix abnormal disruptions in your brainwave activity. The protocol we use is personalized for your specific brain.

Why We Treat PTSD with MeRT
Dr. Joseph Radawi, MD, practiced emergency medicine for more than 10 years before moving into functional medicine. He saw first-hand the impact that chronic conditions, including many mental and neuological conditions, were having on people in his community and wanted to help.
He found that while traditional medicine is great for acute care, such as injuries and emergencies, it doesn’t have good enough answers when it comes to chronic, life altering conditions. MeRT Treatment is a breakthrough approach that treats the neurons of the brain, rather than just the symptoms, to restore brain health for the long-term. Over the years Dr. Radawi has realized that altered mental and brain health is a limiting factor in obtaining optimal health even when following other functional medicine lifestyle recommendations. This is why he is so excited to introduce this innovative treatment in East Tennessee.
Dr. Radawi has completed advanced clinical training in functional medicine and MeRT treatment and has helped many patients address the root causes of their problems and step into a new world of possibilities. Are you ready to take control and restore your brain health?
It was absolutely terrifying to not know what was wrong with me or how to fix the problem. BTC not only identified the deteriorated state of my brainwave activity, they restored its function… I considered the healing I experienced at BTC to be nothing short of a miracle.
