Ketamine Depression Treatment
Discover how Ketamine therapy can treat moderate to severe depression.
Approximately 16 million Americans suffer from major depression every year. Many of them have tried dozens of medications and found no relief, leaving them feeling more distressed than ever. But, help is available.
Ketamine has been discovered to help greatly in the treatment of depression (especially treatment-resistant depression), bipolar disorder, and suicidal tendencies.
Loving Life Today offers Ketamine Depression Treatment, and we have immediate availability for appointments. Read on to learn more about this powerful treatment or schedule your intake appointment today.
What Does Ketamine Do For Depression?
While some depression medications and therapies can take months or even years to show results, the effects of Ketamine treatments are immediate and long-lasting.
Depression triggers an over-activity in the brain, and Ketamine slows down this hyper-connectivity. It also triggers the growth of neural connections which restores balance and functionality in the brain.
Ketamine will relieve you from feeling helpless, so you can function better and feel stronger to tackle whatever tasks come your way. Think of Ketamine as that treatment that will lift the fog that clouds your mind. When this dark cloud is lifted, then you can think clearly and function better.
More than that, Ketamine depression treatment gives you the opportunity to break free from the cloud of depression so you can adopt new habits and learn new skills to arm yourself better against depression.
Is There Proof That Ketamine Works?
Studies led by Yale, Harvard, John’s Hopkins, and the National Institute of Health have led to Ketamine being described as a “life-transplant.”
The American Psychiatric Association says studies have shown that there is “compelling evidence that the antidepressant effects of Ketamine infusion are both rapid and robust, albeit transient.”
In a study, researchers at the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of California San Diego found that Ketamine was shown as the key treatment to alleviating depression by 50% in 41,000 patients.
We've also seen amazing results in our own clinic that show that Ketamine does work in treating depression.

A Ketamine Success Story
"I've suffered from severe anxiety and depression most of my life and have tried countless medications to help control it. Nothing seemed to be working and I was feeling hopeless and afraid of what I might do next. [Loving Life has] been so welcoming and understanding of what I'm going through. They focus my entire well being and not just one single aspect of my condition, which I like.
My first Ketamine treatment lasted approximately one hour. They welcomed me back and sat me in a comfortable private room with a couch where I could lie down and relax while the treatment took place. A few hours after my first treatment, I began to feel a sense of peace. I didn't experience any side effects from the medication either.
I now visit on a regular basis for therapy and Ketamine treatments, and I can honestly say I would not be here today if it weren't for [Loving Life]. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for me."
How Is Ketamine Different from Other Treatments?
The primary difference between Ketamine and other drugs is that the former can give relief a few hours after treatment.
This is a significant shift from other drugs as the latter often take a few weeks, sometimes even months, to make a difference. For people who have suicidal tendencies because of major depression, Ketamine can be a key component to giving them relief and save their life.
Another factor that distinguishes Ketamine from other antidepressants is the way that it tackles the emotions that are fueled by depression. Antidepressants are more likely to “keep depressive symptoms at bay.” What Ketamine does is to tap the person’s emotional reset button.
Ketamine takes away those feelings of helplessness that come with depression until the person is strong enough to tackle these feelings without treatment.
Ketamine Is Only Part of Depression Treatment
Here at Loving Life Therapy, we know that there isn’t only one method of treatment. We approach any condition holistically, which is why we pair our Ketamine treatment with counseling and therapy services. We house both physicians and therapists to give our patients a holistic solution to tackle the issues they face.
We believe that Ketamine for depression is a key treatment in alleviating the worst of the symptoms that come with this battle but we also know that Ketamine is not a means to an end.
We want to help clear the fog in your mind but we also want to arm you with the right skills and habits — ones that can be learned through therapy with one of our in-house professionals.
