What is Anxiety?

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the US, affecting 40 million adults. Many describe it as an overwhelming sense of fear, dread, and feeling uneasy.

Anxiety is a debilitating condition that can quickly affect an individual’s quality of life. Symptoms often include nervousness, increased heart rate, hyperventilating, and trouble concentrating. If left alone, anxiety disorders can become worse.

Many people try various treatment options but find that they come up short. That’s where we at Ketamine Wellness Institute come in. We sit down with you and listen to your story, what’s going on with your health, and can make a tailored treatment plan created with you in mind.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is a common mood disorder for those who suffer from anxiety and is known for its chronic, intense feelings of worry or restlessness. Symptoms often include difficulty sleeping, feeling easily agitated, and muscle tension. While the symptoms may come and go, this is not a condition that will fix itself if left untreated. It can negatively affect a person’s life the longer one goes without treatment, causing problems with school, work, or personal relationships.

Phobia-Related Disorders

A phobia is a fear of specific objects (or situations). Often, phobias are irrational, but anxiety can amplify the fear until it becomes a debilitating condition. While some phobias are more common than others (being scared of spiders, the dark, heights, etc.), it doesn’t make them any easier to live with. The list of phobias goes on and can be extensive, even going so far as leaving a person terrified at the idea of leaving their own house (agoraphobia). Ketamine Wellness Institute can help you reclaim control of your life with the help of IV ketamine therapy.

Social Anxiety Disorder

It’s normal for some social situations to bring about anxiety, but if everyday activities and interactions prove challenging, this may indicate a legitimate disorder. If social situations cause great levels of anxiety and a crippling fear of being scrutinized in a person, they may be suffering from social anxiety disorder. Symptoms include debilitating anxiety related to social situations and self-consciousness.

The Science Behind IV Ketamine

How It Works

Ketamine has been used worldwide for decades both as a safe anesthetic and rapid pain reliever. Research in the last two decades indicates that ketamine, administered safely via a series of infusions, may relieve the symptoms of depression or other mental health conditions within hours. This is compared to the weeks or months oral antidepressants may take before relief is felt.

Researchers are still looking to determine the exact method of action with IV ketamine infusions. One theory proposes that it stimulates the regrowth of synapses – effectively “rewiring” the brain.

Another promising avenue of research into its effects indicates that it acts on glutamate, an important neurotransmitter that affects how synapses change and learn. This is called neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain to change and learn. This could explain ketamine’s strong effect on mood and pain disorders.

“Many patients with anxiety disorders experience inadequate symptom relief from available treatments. Ketamine is a potent N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor antagonist with a potentially novel mechanism of action for the treatment of anxiety disorders.” –Yale University & the University of Pennsylvania.
