So how does Ketamine Treatments treat PTSD/Depression?
Since the early 2000s, researchers have investigated ketamine infusion for other medical applications due to its excellent safety profile. Studies suggest that IV ketamine therapy is a well tolerated treatment option for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
IV ketamine therapy provides rapid relief from core PTSD symptoms and co-morbid depressive symptoms in patients with chronic PTSD. It is most effective when used in conjunction with other treatments, like cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR and/or exposure-response prevention.
At 361 Wellness/STMHA, we have been effectively relieving PTSD symptoms with IV Ketamine treatment for years. Our medical team, led by Dr. John Lusins, carefully designs individualized treatment plans according to each patient’s needs and preferences.
What is PTSD?
PTSD is the acronym for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. It is a chronic and disabling psychiatric disorder that starts after exposure to actual or threatened death, serious injury or violence. A person suffering from PTSD may experience disturbed sleep, avoidance, altered mood, and recurrent, intrusive, distressing memories of the traumatic event(s).
PTSD can be a result of:
Although most people may feel upset or have trouble coping after a traumatic stressor, they usually get better with time and self-care. People with PTSD often experience severe and worsening symptoms which interfere with their day to day activities for months or even years after the event.
PTSD can happen to anyone, and is often the result of experiences outside of your control. If you have distressing thoughts or feelings after a traumatic event which are interfering with your daily life, talk to your doctor or a mental health professional about IV Ketamine.
Many people associate PTSD with combat veterans. While soldiers experience an elevated risk of developing PTSD, soldiers are not the only ones impacted by PTSD or comorbid depression.
Almost daily, reports of death, injury and violence appear in the paper or on the daily news. Over 70% of adults worldwide experience a potentially traumatic event in their lifetimes, with over 30% experiencing four or more. According to the National Center for PTSD, 7-8% of the population in the United States will have PTSD at some point during their life, and 8 million adults have PTSD in a given year.
Even though PTSD treatments are effective, most people do not get the help they need. With our Kalypso Ketamine therapy at 361 Wellness, we are relieving the symptoms of PTSD today.
Signs and symptoms of PTSD can begin right after a traumatic incident, but sometimes symptoms may not appear until years later. Symptoms can vary in intensity over time and can vary from person to person. Symptoms of PTSD may include:
Timely support for PTSD and comorbid depression is critical and may help prevent its symptoms from worsening. Getting support from others, may also help prevent unhealthy coping mechanisms such as misuse of alcohol or drugs.
