If you suffer from anxiety, you’re not alone. Approximately 40 million U.S. adults between the ages of 18 to 54 are battling anxiety that can make it hard or even impossible to function in their daily lives. Ketamine therapy provides new hope to those suffering from anxiety disorders – even treatment-resistant anxiety.
Ketamine infusion works by blocking the NMDA (N-methyl-d-aspartate) glutamate receptor in the brain. As a neural growth stimulator, ketamine increases the connections between the body’s synapses, boosting the brain’s overall functional capacity. This results in a rapid serotonin production increase – resulting in a positive effect for many people struggling with anxiety disorders, and one that lasts long after ketamine has been flushed from the body.
When administered safely by a trained healthcare professional, ketamine can greatly help those with anxiety manage their condition and improve the quality of their lives. At our clinic Foundations for Change, we offer ketamine infusion as one option for addressing anxiety disorders and improving the lives for those who suffer from anxiety.
Treatment Protocol for Ketamine Therapy for Anxiety
Ketamine therapy for anxiety disorders follows a standard six-treatment protocol followed by a maintenance program that varies by individual. This six-week treatment approach is the most effective, according the research, for treating and managing anxiety.
