Ketamine Therapy Treating Depression
With a variety of mood disorders in today’s day and age such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) there are a multitude of treatment options. Depression is a mood disorder that affects countless individuals, and with the pandemic creating an epidemic of depression, great success is being found with ketamine. This psychedelic infusion helps bring the goal of happiness. When antidepressants and other conventional therapies are not helping, ketamine can be a great alternative. When patients take medication, it only lasts for as long as when it’s in your system. However, with Ketamine treatments, the results last because it’s not about the medication in your body, but the reaction it provides.
One of the most common mental illnesses in the United States according to the National Institute of Mental Health is Depression. Depression is highly treatable but many people who struggle with their mental health do not receive the appropriate treatment. Depression is one of the most common mood disorders that Ketamine treatments assist with. According to the Chief Psychiatrist at Yale School of Medicine, Doctor John Krystal, states that Ketamine has a 70% effectiveness as opposed to a multiple use antidepressant which falls at a 48% effectiveness.
With a ketamine session taking about 30 minutes, within about 2 minutes of the treatment, its benefits start to take place. Since Ketamine is not a true psychedelic, it is legal, however, the psychedelic experience helps patients look deep into themselves to find love and forgiveness. When the ketamine is infused, our brain is bathed in this glutamate and once it is done, the metabolites of ketamine act as a fertilizer for the brain. This treatment helps individuals process everyday things without the fear or anxiety that triggers a depressive state. Individuals have seen improvement in as little as one to two sessions that have alleviated years of chronic depression.
