Since 1965, depression treatment has included antidepressants and counseling. Early antidepressants have targeted receptors in the brain for neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine. Many believed that depression was caused by low levels of those neurotransmitters.
However, neuroscientists have learned that it’s not those neurotransmitters at the root of depression, but the inflammatory changes to the structures in the brain that support transmission of signals and communication throughout the brain that are far more responsible.
Things like stress, trauma, anxiety and depression cause those structures to break down and not work as well. And, when there aren’t enough of those structures to help transmit those signals, things get dark and quiet. And you feel sad… or just numb.
Those structures, or nerves in your brain called neurons, have lots of branches that are connected to each other at synapses. Those branches can break, weaken, and thin out because of the ravages of stress and depression.
A little bit of worry is part of life for most humans. You may worry about finances, your health and the health of your family, or issues at work. But this worry doesn’t consume your days and nights. But when someone has Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), the worrying grows out of control. You feel nervous about most things, even when there’s nothing happening to cause it. You may even feel such extreme worry and nervousness that it’s difficult to go through your daily routine, or function in your job.
It’s not about sudden feelings of panic, but more of an almost constant nervousness, and worrying and worrying that just takes over your world.
This condition can plague not only adults, but children too.
And if you do have generalized anxiety disorder, you probably need treatment to help you break away from the worry so you can invest in your life again; your family, your work, and your friends. Worrying too much may make it hard to focus, concentrate on things you want to, you may feel a bit jumpy and startle easily, you may have headaches and all sorts of aches and pains.
Post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a psychiatric disorder that can result from experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event. But finding effective treatment for PTSD and the depression that often comes with it can be difficult.
We often think about PTSD when a man or woman returns from active combat, and is traumatized by the experience. You might over-react to an unexpected sound, or bright light, or a voice. The trigger could be a well-intended pat on your back, or you might awaken at night after a nightmare, and the nightmare still seems real.
Any terrifying and traumatic event can cause PTSD.
If you’ve experienced domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, a terrible auto accident, wreckage of any form of transportation, or a natural disaster such as fire, violent destructive weather, or war, you may have times when you feel like you’re back in that experience. Flashbacks of the traumatic event are common, and seem so real to you that you believe you’re back in that experience.
You may need treatment for PTSD and depression from the trauma you’ve suffered that replays itself so that you and your family continue to suffer..
Expanding our expertise.
Ketamine, originally an anesthesia medication, has proven it’s safety in surgery and emergency settings for 50 years. And, it’s earned its reputation as an extremely safe medication for almost any age.
But, there’s more. In the last 15 years, there’s been more evidence of IV ketamine treatment’s remarkable effectiveness with psychiatric mood and anxiety disorders. Chronic illnesses like depression, bipolar depression, PTSD, social anxiety, OCD, and even isolated symptoms like suicidal thoughts.
Nothing has ever been developed before that was so effective with depression and other mood disorders.
But, ‘one size does not fit all’. Still, ketamine treatment for depression is very effective for restoring the power to enjoy life for 80% of people with treatment-resistant depression, as well as for bipolar depression, PTSD, social anxiety, and OCD.
Ketamine can transform your life and restore your hope. Relief is possible.
Due to the continuous, innovative findings for ketamine in the scientific community, we are enhancing our offerings and will be adding more conditions and disease states to support.
