4 Reasons To Consider Ketamine IV Therapy in Boca Raton FL

If you’ve tried multiple antidepressant treatments without success, you may want to consider ketamine IV therapy in Boca Raton.

IV Therapy Boca Raton FLAlthough making a grilled cheese sandwich seems to be a mindless task, it is something that involves several very real cognitive challenges: you have to remember where the cheese and bread are, as well as remember the steps involved, find the pan, and know what to do with it. Not to mention, you have to eat it, which is energy-demanding.

It’s hard to imagine that the simple task of writing a grocery list or taking the dog for a walk could be challenging for someone. But those things can be difficult, and anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues can worsen it.

We offer ketamine IV Therapy at LifeGaines Medical & Aesthetics in Boca Raton to help people who struggle with anxiety or depression. In many cases, ketamine IV therapy reduces symptoms in patients and causes them to feel euphoric.

Ketamine IV Therapy in Boca Raton is an effective treatment for patients suffering from depression, anxiety, heartbreak, grief, sexual concerns, addiction, relapse prevention, or other chronic illnesses.

What is Ketamine IV Therapy?

Regenerative medicine is often unheard of for those struggling with treatment-resistant depression and debilitating anxiety. Typically stuck in a never-ending cycle, their ability to feel better and improve their quality of life seems non-existent.

If you’re stuck in a rut of anti-depressant treatments that seem not to work, then ketamine IV therapy in Boca Raton might be for you. Initially used for anesthetics, ketamine is now used as an intravenous infusion to treat depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Ketamine has the ability to disassociate a patient’s emotional and physical pain from their body. For people with severe depression and intrusive thoughts, this is much-needed relief.

A tailored dose of ketamine is required to achieve maximum benefits. The therapeutic benefits are not only of a particular dose but also of a particular route of administration, which is intravenous (IV).

Why Should I Try Ketamine IV Therapy?

Ketamine IV therapy has been proven to treat many various diseases successfully. It helps with your memory and emotions, making you feel calm and more like yourself.

1. Fast-acting symptom relief

Unlike antidepressants on the market today, ketamine IV therapy works immediately. They take weeks to build up in your body and begin working. In addition, ketamine continues to work after it has been metabolized.

2. High rate of success

Although research is still ongoing, many studies have shown that ketamine IV therapy is highly effective at treating persistent depression.

Its excellent efficacy is one of the many reasons ketamine therapy is so effective for people who cannot find lasting relief through traditional medical treatments.

3. Works unlike other medications and treatments

Several medications and treatments are available for anxiety, depression, and PTSD, including oral medicines and transcranial magnetic stimulation.

If you have tried different combinations or dosages of medication or treatments without any relief, you might consider ketamine IV therapy. Ketamine IV therapy has calming, highly therapeutic effects on the parts of your brain that control mood and behavior.

4. Lasting symptom remission

The ketamine infusion therapy doesn’t “cure” depression in one session. Also, it doesn’t have the same effect as conventional antidepressants that you must take daily for years (or as long as they work). Ketamine therapy has its effects because of the body’s response to it, not the presence of ketamine itself.

On the other hand, a single ketamine IV therapy cycle stimulates beneficial brain changes that lead to lasting symptom relief. Tailored doses of ketamine activate parts of the brain needed to create lasting behavior change.

5. No long-term side effects

There are no long-term side effects to ketamine IV therapy. Our Boca Raton clinic is a safe and regulated environment where unwanted side effects can be minimized or avoided altogether.

Side effects such as fatigue, grogginess, and mild nausea usually subside after a full night’s sleep. Some side effects may even disappear completely the next day.

Several patients have reported that ketamine saved their lives and restored the joys and pains of complete living. It’s as if, for the first time in their lives, there is air to breathe.

Are There Risks to Ketamine IV Therapy?

Despite its significant benefits, ketamine has some drawbacks, including its dissociative effects and potential addictive properties. People with addictive disorders or a history of substance abuse may not be suitable for this treatment.

Because of this, ketamine IV therapy must be:

  • Approved for use only after a comprehensive evaluation
  • Received in a ketamine-certified clinical setting
  • Administered and monitored by an experienced provider

Are There Side Effects?

IV Therapy Boca Raton FLKetamine is administered intravenously very slowly for 45 minutes. During the infusion, you may feel light or floating, as some describe it as “lifting a weight off their shoulders.”

Most patients experience mild dissociative symptoms. Experts from our Boca Raton clinic monitor the infusion, and any unpleasant side effects, such as nausea and fatigue, are treated.

Due to the possibility of immediate side effects, driving to and from treatment sessions must be done by someone else.

In spite of the mild dissociative effects of ketamine diminishing quickly, you may still feel tired or dizzy after the treatment until you get a good night’s sleep.
