Picture this: you’ve spent three years working on and off with a mental health care team to manage the debilitating symptoms of anxiety and depression you have been experiencing. You’ve pushed yourself to be open minded to their recommendations: telehealth appointments, apps, one medication and then another one when the first didn’t work. You feel a little better but it’s not worth the toll it’s taking on your body, mind, and spirit. Unanticipated symptoms including weight gain, fatigue and lethargy are taking their toll and draining your resolve. You need something new; a new approach, a new mindset but mostly, you need real help from a compassionate and innovative healthcare team.

In recent years, the vast number of advancements in research into depression treatments have opened a variety of ways to help manage mental health conditions. One such avenue that is increasingly gaining traction is ketamine infusions. An ever-growing field within medical science, ketamine infusion therapy can offer an exciting alternative for those looking for a different route towards managing depressive symptoms. If you're sick of taking antidepressants and you're not feeling an impact, take a moment to learn what ketamine infusions are and how they may be beneficial to individuals struggling with depression or other related mental health issues.
How Ketamine Treatment Works in the Brain to Combat Depression
Ketamine has traditionally been used as an anesthetic in pain management clinics. However, in recent years, it’s been found to alleviate symptoms of depression and other mood disorders. Research studies have found that ketamine can quickly and effectively improve symptoms of depression, with some patients noticing improvements within hours after treatment. Unlike traditional antidepressants, ketamine works by targeting glutamate receptors in the brain, leading to increased neural connections. Additionally, ketamine has a low risk for addiction and dependency, making it a promising treatment option for individuals who have not responded well to other antidepressant medications. Although more research needs to be done, it offers hope for those who are struggling with treatment-resistant depression.
