Why I Should Be Do Ketamine Therapy?

Depression affects more than 16 million Americans every year. While this condition is a challenge for everyone who must cope with it, there are many who cannot find relief in traditional treatments.

At Aayu Clinics, we take pride in offering the latest advances in mental health treatment and the highest levels of quality and patient safety. That’s why we are now offering ketamine infusions for treatment resistant depression.

The goal of the Balance Ketamine Wellness Center is to provide customized, high-quality care and counseling for people suffering from afflictions where ketamine infusions for depression have proved to be a successful treatment choice. While actively investigating the efficacy of Ketamine in treating additional conditions, ketamine infusion therapy has been shown to repair the neural pathways in your brain at low dose levels that have been weakened by deteriorating mental health.

What Is IV ketamine Therapy?

Ketamine is an anesthetic medication that blocks the NMDA receptor that has also been used as a recreational drug due to its dissociative properties. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines because of its safety and efficacy for anesthesia. More recently, ketamine has been discovered as a safe and effective treatment for depression, and randomized controlled trials have shown rapid improvement in mood as well as reduction in suicidality compared to people who receive a placebo or another drug.

How does IV Ketamine Therapy Work?

Several randomized controlled trials demonstrate that ketamine has made a significant improvement in depressive symptoms and suicidality over the course of the first 2 weeks. In fact, if ketamine does not work for you after 2 sessions, the data suggest it is unlikely to work at all. Several studies have looked at how long the effects of Ketamine last. This graph shows just one such study’s results.

Ketamine for Other Psychological Conditions

Ketamine may also be useful as an adjunct in other severe and treatment-resistant conditions where first-line treatment has not been successful. These include anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) which is characterized by constant intrusive thoughts and accompanying repetitive behavior and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with or without depressive symptoms.

What People Says?

“I’ve tried various different treatment options for over 5 years and this has been the most, if not the only effective medical treatment I’ve had for depression. The clinic is clean, comfortable, and everyone is very nice. The whole process was carefully guided and informative, and though the treatment seems intimidating, the whole experience is comforting and I started to see results very very quickly. Plus, this is by far the cheapest option I’ve found for ketamine infusions and I would not have been able to get the treatment at all had this clinic not offered it for hundreds of dollars less than most others. I would highly recommend Balance both for the price and how incredibly effective the ketamine was for my depression. My family noticed a dramatic difference before and after I had the first infusion.”
