So how does the Ketamine for anxiety work?
A trained nurse distributes ketamine to the body through an IV. The dosage depends on body weight. NWS follows the accepted guideline of 0.5mg/kg body weight for the initial infusion.
The entire process occurs in a controlled medical setting and patients are continuously monitored.
Delivered at a slow and controlled rate, the procedure is very safe. IV ketamine does not suppress the respiratory or cardiovascular systems. Patients won’t hallucinate or become unconscious. Few, if any, side effects result. Patients may briefly feel disoriented, nauseous, or sensitive to light and sounds for the first minutes after the infusion stops.
Ketamine stimulates brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and the growth of neurons in the brain. Researchers have also observed increased synaptic connections in patients treated with IV Ketamine therapy. This neuronal growth and increased neuronal interconnectivity relieve symptoms of anxiety.
What Is Anxiety?
For the average person, anxiety is a typical and healthy emotion. For instance, it is normal to experience nervousness before a test or job interview.
Disproportionate levels of anxiety, however, are medical disorders. They are categorized by excessive worry, nervousness, apprehension, obsessions, sleep disturbance, and fear.
These disorders influence how one behaves and processes emotions. They can also cause physical symptoms such as skin rashes, gastrointestinal discomfort, and migraines.
Anxiety comes in many different forms. Mild cases can be intermittent and cause slight discomfort. More severe cases can be debilitating and prevent normal day-to-day life.
Causes of the disorder are complicated. There can be many contributing factors but some common causes include:
- Environmental stressors (work, relationship, or family problems)
- Symptoms of a different disease
- Side effects of a medication
- Withdrawal from illicit substances
Those with anxiety respond to treatment differently. Some are helped with medications. Others benefit from traditional therapy.
There are many cases of treatment-resistant anxiety. These occur when symptoms do not respond to the typical treatment options.
In such cases more novel therapeutic interventions should be considered. IV Ketamine therapy is known for helping relieve treatment-resistant anxiety.
