Many are turning to Ketamine for depression in the Salt Lake City and West Jordan, Utah. From time to time, life brings unexpected changes that may leave you feeling down. Sadness in response to life’s setbacks is normal and tends to fade with time. However, for people suffering from depression, these dark emotions are present in nearly every situation in a person’s life. Depression is a mental disorder that causes constant feelings of sadness and loss of interest. The symptoms can worsen if untreated, and a person may experience problems executing normal day-to-day activities. Ketamine for depression is an innovative, life-changing treatment performed to help patients manage and reduce the uncomfortable symptoms of depression.
According to The Hope For Depression Research Foundation, depression affects over 18 million adults (one in ten) in any given year and is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Ketamine for depression is a revolutionary new treatment option, cleared by the FDA in 2019. Before this approval, traditional antidepressant medications and psychotherapy, such as therapy or counseling, were the only treatment options for people suffering from depression. The lengthy process of trying different medications or psychotherapy can be extremely frustrating and challenging. Often, the degree of severity of the patient’s symptoms of depression proved resistant to medication or professional counseling.
Ketamine for depression is a promising alternative treatment that targets neurological causes, whereas traditional medicine only aims to minimize the symptoms. Ketamine therapy allows the mind to heal its damaged neurons and to create new essential neural pathways. “Recent data suggest that ketamine…might be the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades.” Ketamine’s therapeutic effects work almost immediately and positively affect people suffering from depression for a significant amount of time, even after the drug has left the body.
A typical Ketamine therapy session is closely monitored and distributed intramuscularly or infused intravenously over 40-60 minutes. During the treatment, patients may experience an altered mental state, although they will be conscious and able to speak. Ketamine infusions are safe, relaxing, and do not affect the respiratory system. We have taken particular care to design the Ketamine treatment rooms at Ketamine Therapy at Therapeutic Alternatives. Our goal is to create a safe, welcoming environment that eases your mind so your body can better promote healing.
