Anxiety is the most common mental health challenge in the U.S. today. It affects 40 million people in the U.S. alone and 264 million around the world. More staggering is the fact that, unfortunately, conventional treatment doesn’t work for a large portion of those who suffer from anxiety. According to PubMed, more than 50% of patients suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder (the most common anxiety disorder) are considered treatment-resistant. We have good news for the large number of people suffering, seemingly hopelessly! Ketamine infusions can alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, and it can do so immediately.
We have talked a lot about Ketamine and its effectiveness in treating depression and chronic pain. We even shared intimate experiences via the diary of a brave client. Because we are continually blown away by Ketamine’s life-changing results, we feel compelled to continue sharing in hopes of helping as many of you as possible and to emphasize the many applications of Ketamine. Not only does Ketamine help with depression and chronic pain, but it’s been found to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as well!
If you are one of the more than 20% of Americans suffering from chronic pain, you know all too well that the typical pain management routes often fall short. Physical therapy, opioids, and rest are often incapable of addressing chronic pain–the type that is always there, even on good days, in the background, affecting your life. This is the kind of pain that keeps you from doing the things you love to do, from traveling, from being as active as you’d like to be, from hitting your PR, from making that last run on the slopes, from playing with your kids. Fortunately, Ketamine may be able to help you get back to living fully.
Our brave client completed her sixth Ketamine session and provided her reflections on the process and its impact on her. When combined with her own open-mindedness and hard work, these Ketamine treatments made some significant, lasting changes in her life and in her outlook. As usual, she describes it far better than we could, so ENJOY the last entry in The Ketamine Diaries!
After critical acclaim, we’re back with session 2 of the Ketamine Diaries! We loved hearing our client’s vulnerable and vivid description of her first experience with Ketamine. This week, we bring you her account of her second session, and she gets even more vulnerable. The most important thing to take from this account is that Ketamine is not a magic bullet or a happy pill. It is a tool that must be handled with care. It helps to rewire your brain, but you must prepare for each session, engage each session, and incorporate changes after each session. She talks about sitting with the discomfort of the treatment and the changes she hopes to make afterward. We hope you find it as informative and helpful as we did!
Ketamine use has been found to lessen depression symptoms in 70% of patients. Ketamine’s unique effect on brain chemistry makes it extremely safe and effective. We hope an understanding of this process will remove some of the taboo and shed some light on the potential benefits of ketamine infusion therapy.
