Help for traumatized people

Dr. Omar Dakik is a doctor in Bocholt. In his practice, the general practitioner and psychotherapist treats, inter alia, people from different countries, suffering from the consequences of war and flight. Orbis interviewed him. Dakik, please describe briefly your career as a physician before you came to Bocholt. Dakik: I completed my medical studies in the former Soviet Union. I have continued with further education as a general practitioner and psychotherapist in Germany. Since 2004 I am working as a general practitioner in the fields of general medicine and psychotherapy in Bocholt. Orbis: How can people cope with the consequences of war and rape, which can be seen in the form of nightmares? Dakik: Through psychotherapy you get to know patients who want to process traumas or war experiences. How to handle these can not be answered in general. The most important issue in managing the issues is the trusted doctor-patient contact. Traumatic stress is associated with a variety of emotions. These emotions burden the traumatized patient. The goal of a therapy is to decouple this emotional burden from the memory of what happened or lived through. To achieve this, hypnosis is very well suited. I successfully perform hypnosis treatments with some of my patients. Orbis: Among other things, her practice has a state-of-the-art device that measures patients' stress levels. Which patients are treated with it? Do the health insurance companies cover the costs? Dakik: In my practice, I use an HRV device, among other things. This serves to measure heart rate variability. I use it preventively - for prophylaxis or prevention and also for unclear discomfort. It records stress levels and their health effects. This scientifically recognized method is precise and meaningful. The analysis provides the patient with information about the stress level, biological age, energy reserves, his psycho-emotional profile and the overall energy level. The HRV system uses 300 heartbeats to analyze how variable the heart is acting in order to absorb and optimally regulate stress. It objectively reflects the stress situation of the organism, which can be the trigger as well as the symptom of serious health disorders. Based on the measurements, the system creates an individual sound regulation to compensate for stress-related imbalances. It also offers an individual respiratory rate exercise. This helps in just five minutes, to find their own natural breathing rhythm and thus at the same time noticeably reduce the stress level. The application of the HRV device is completely taken over by the private funds. The statutory funds do not pay the costs. Dakik, you master very well not only Farsi (Dari) as mother tongue, but also German, English and Russian. Dakik: In my practice, my staff and I speak several languages. An agreement in German, Russian, English, Farsi, Dari, Spanish or Polish is possible. We are a multi-cultural team, and like us, our patients are multicultural.Orbis: Do the different cultural backgrounds of your patients play a role? Dakik: The knowledge of the multicultural background of patients is beneficial for the doctor and his team. Each patient expresses himself differently, perceives his feelings differently. Every culture differs and thus also the expression of the complaints. The expectation of the patient to the doctor is different. With a knowledge of the cultural background one understands the affected patients better and can thus avoid possible conflicts. [...]
