Default Re: olfactory cues

Surely. Its very common for olfaction to be an issue in PTSD. Any of the following channels can be dissociated at the time of trauma: visual, olfactory, kinesthetic, behavioral, auditory, taste, cognitive, emotional. They breakthrough in dreams or flashes indicating, like a sliver, it wants out. EMDR can enable that raw material to be processed to resolution. Voila, No more flashbacks.
