Depression Related Conditions

Ketamine Infusion Therapy has been shown to Improve the Symptoms of Depression in up to 70% of Patients after even a Single Treatment

Ketamine Infusion has been shown to be effective in the treatment of a variety of Depression related conditions

Every year, 13 million to 14 million Americans have major depression.  30% to 40% who seek treatment will not get better or fully recover with standard antidepressants. These patients, who do not recover, are at significantly greater risk to abuse drugs and alcohol. They also have increased hospitalizations, and suicide attempts. Multiple research studies show that ketamine infusion therapy may offer significant relief for these patients. Using ketamine appears to be a helpful alternative, for those who have exhausted traditional treatment options. Current data suggests that ketamine infusions are appropriate for patients with treatment- resistant unipolar or bipolar depression, without psychotic features and lack substance-use disorder.

How Does Ketamine Work?

Researchers aren’t exactly sure the mechanism of how Ketamine infusions work, however it has been shown to help regenerate synaptic connections between brain cells that are damaged by stress, after even a single administration.  It is believed that at lower doses, Ketamine acts as a neurotransmitter antagonist (GluN2B) in the brain. This area of the brain is the focus of treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD and chronic pain conditions.  Up to 70 % of patients treated with Ketamine for conditions ranging from Major Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, and chronic pain conditions show immediate improvement.  The immediate relief is in stark contrast to the slower methods of antidepressants medications and talk-therapy.  Ketamine is commonly used in the emergency room and operating rooms for anesthesia.  Read more on how you can take the first steps towards health and wellness.
