Anxiety can arise from diverse triggers, both internal and external. Some patients may have an underlying genetic susceptibility. Other patients may have medical conditions that exacerbate their anxiety.
Some patients may not be able to control their anxiety with medications and psychotherapy. Ketamine infusions and medication assisted psychotherapy offer a breakthrough treatment for treatment resistant anxiety and its crippling panic attacks.
Glutamate is a powerful neurotransmitter involved in our sense of fear and stress response. Ketamine modulates glutamate levels and NMDA receptor activity to fundamentally alter our response to triggering stimuli, perceived or real.
While anxiety has many causes, there are underlying biochemical and psychological disturbances that limit your ability to recognize cognitive barriers to re-engaging with yourself.
The powerful anti-depressant effects of ketamine (as a powerful NMDA and glutamate receptor antagonist) can particularly relieve anxiety in patients suffering from both depression and anxiety. This can re-shift the biochemical balance in your brain to help restore your inner healing potential. Traditional anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications simply don't have this same effect.
Cognitive rigidity underlies many psychiatric conditions and personality traits, including anxiety, compulsivity (OCD), eating disorders, and trichotillomania. It's not an unwillingness to change, but it's a neurochemical inertia that can make changing habits and routines incredibly difficult. Ketamine and medication assisted hypnotherapy can help restructure rigid cognitive loops through neuroplasticity - literally helping re-wire rigid neurological habit loops.
Medication augmented hypnotherapy disinhibits your frontal cortex, allowing you to interact with your therapist, and yourself, differently. This can also help you uncover your hidden healing potential to overcome your anxiety. Both ketamine and clinical hypnosis help you break cycles of cognitive rigidity and can be performed with your therapist with the goal of achieving lasting relief. Many patients are able to reduce medication requirements while others are able to live medication-free after their sessions are complete.
Unlike traditional anti-anxiety medications, in particular benzodiazepines like Xanax, our infusion treatments are very safe.
Unlike oral dosing, IV infusion rates can be modified instantaneously to allow for more rapid therapeutic effect. There is no need to wait for the effect of a pill to decide if the next pill dose should be changed a week later.
Treating anxiety for long-term relief requires more than just medication. Medications alone runs a serious risk of anxiety symptom relapse, including panic attacks.
