It can be easy for those who continue to have symptoms of mental health issues to lose hope while taking oral antidepressants. Ketamine IV Infusion Therapy is a healthy, quick-acting alternative for treating resistant symptoms of depression. Ketamine works on NMDA receptors, unlike traditional antidepressants.
These receptors affect mood, thought patterns, and cognition. That is why ketamine treatment is so revolutionary for doctors and practitioners.
What is Ketamine?
Ketamine is known as the world’s most widely used anesthetic. It is safe for both humans and animals. It has been used for over 50 years as an FDA-approved Schedule III anesthetic. Neuron development in the brain is induced by this treatment in as little time as one hour.
Many scientists who study ketamine concentrate on glutamate, which is a key player in neural activation.
The Benefits of Ketamine IV Infusion Therapy
Ketamine works differently from conventional antidepressants. Ketamine can help people handle depression effectively if other therapies have not succeeded. The anesthetic reduces stress immediately, helping patients to feel relieved and to gain clarity. It can also alleviate depression in other ways.
For example, it may reduce signals associated with inflammation that has been associated with mood disorders, or strengthen communication within certain brain regions.
Ketamine works simultaneously in several ways, many of which are being studied.
An average of 83 percent of ReLiveMD’s patients received significant relief from the treatment.
Almost all of them had previously tried multiple medication with little to no relief, In some cases, patients had previously been treated with ECT (electroconvulsive therapy) and/or TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) to no avail.
The Ketamine IV Infusion Experience
Ketamine is given through an IV injection, and the effects last from a few days to a few weeks. Treatment begins with two or three infusions 48-96 hours apart to get a baseline and to see if the ketamine becomes effective.
Many responsive patients notice improvement on the day of or after their 2nd infusion.
ReLive Med is the best place to treat depression and other mood disorders. By using ketamine infusion therapy in a warm, welcoming space, ReLive Med gives people the tools to rehabilitate their brains, helping them rise to a new, healthier sense of self in a private setting.
