Anxiety is a mental health disorder characterized by persistent and intrusive fears and worries. There are several different types of anxiety disorder, which are identified by the situations that trigger your fears.
Generalized anxiety disorder is the most common type of the condition. You may experience fears about everyday situations like projects at work, family health issues, or chores like taking your car for an oil change.
Other prevalent types of anxiety disorders include social anxiety, separation anxiety, and specific phobias. While all types of anxiety can severely disrupt your life, you can recover through treatment.
Anxiety and fear are normal human emotions that help keep you safe from dangerous situations. However, when your worries are disproportionate to the situation and interfere with your ability to function in your day-to-day life, it’s time to seek help. The team at Military Matters Ketamine Clinic of Colorado offers innovative treatment for veterans living with anxiety.
Conventional treatment for anxiety usually includes a combination of medication and counseling. Medication should correct your brain chemistry and alleviate your symptoms so you can focus your energy on counseling.
During counseling, you typically explore your anxieties and learn to recognize your negative thoughts and emotions. You also learn strategies and techniques to change the way you respond to your anxious feelings.
However, this approach doesn’t work for everyone. That’s why the team at Military Matters Ketamine Clinic of Colorado provides innovative ketamine infusion therapy.
Ketamine is a powerful medication that is traditionally used in anesthesia. Research shows that the drug is helpful for a variety of mental health conditions. Studies indicate that ketamine stimulates different receptors in your brain than conventional antidepressant and anti-anxiety medicine. It can deliver rapid relief from your symptoms
Ketamine infusion therapy is a relaxing experience. While under the constant supervision of a provider, you receive an IV infusion of a small dose of ketamine. You rest in a comfortable chair for just under an hour while you receive your infusion. You might experience a floating or out-of-body sensation during the treatment, but these effects subside soon after your treatment is complete.
A member of the team is with you throughout your treatment, and they monitor your vital signs every five minutes to ensure your safety and comfort. A ketamine infusion can leave you feeling temporarily tired and disoriented, so you need a friend or family member to drive you home after your treatment.
Most patients have a series of ketamine infusions, and then your provider tapers your treatment. Depending on your needs, you might continue to have occasional ketamine infusions to maintain your results.
Call Military Matters Ketamine Clinic of Colorado or schedule a consultation online today if you have anxiety that hasn’t responded to other treatments and find out if ketamine infusion therapy is right for you.
