I am trying to find out what works and doesn't work, my fiance is a vet and barely sleeps at night and has seizures occasionally from being shot in the side of his head. He has PTSD which causes him to have flashbacks and sometimes they bring seizures on. I am looking for advice on how to help him any way I can.

If your fiance had suffered from anxiety, then it would be tolerable because normal anxiety dis-orders can be dealt with without medication or doctors using natural remedies, methods and habits to ease the anxiety.
However, PTSD or Seizures is anxiety on a whole new level and is very severe especially when it starts affecting your sleep and activities throughout the day. This type of severe case needs to be reported to a doctor, psychiatrist or therapist because i don't see a way for him to get out of this without professional help at the moment although natural remedies and special methods can offer assistance (short term).
For normal anxiety, methods such as:
1. Taking relaxing baths
2. Breathing exercises (very important, never underestimate oxygen)
3. Special herbal extracts that help combat stress (one is called 'rescue' and comes as a form of over-the-counter medicine)
4. Daily exercise
5. Healthy balanced diet
6. Spending time outside and engaging in social interaction.
7. Avoid caffeine and video games or movies or any artificial visual stimulants1
