Let’s face it – 2020 is already seeming like a trial-run of what 2021 will be. Only two weeks into the New Year, our Nation is facing uncertainty that none of us have ever experienced. It is easy to become overwhelmed with all that we see on the news. It is hard to know what to believe, which voices speak the truth, and where we will “go” from here. For those who have suffered from anxiety and depression, uncertainty in our Nation can cause feelings to escalate. However, there have been rising numbers of those who are suffering from depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts across the globe. At Ketamine Healing Clinic of Los Angeles, we want to be a source of help for you during these difficult times.
Ketamine is a treatment that has been around for over 50 years. It is used in a wide variety of medical settings, including proven treatments for Major Depression, mood irregularities, and chronic pain syndromes. Ketamine acts by working on receptors that are unique to its affinity. Ketamine interacts with chemicals in the brain that play roles in mood regulation to send positive signals that trigger euphoric feelings to help patients enter a worry-free state of mind.
As of September 2020, over a quarter of the United States’ population was experiencing symptoms of depression. With the confusion and distress of the election and the electoral process, the number of people experiencing depression and anxiety is rising. According to the CDC, before the COVID-19 pandemic, 8.5% of U.S. adults reported being depressed. That number has risen to almost 28%, more than tripling the rate of depression in the United States.
Ketamine treatments work faster than most prescription treatments. For most patients, ketamine improves their symptoms within hours of days. Most depression prescription medications can take weeks or longer to take full effect, and that is only when they work effectively.
If you are going into 2021 feeling depressed, anxious, or uncertain, please contact Ketamine Healing Clinic of Los Angeles today. We can help.
