New Anxiety Treatment in Savannah

Everyone experiences occasional anxiety. However, people suffering from excessive worry and fear on a daily basis may suffer from an anxiety disorder. These disorders often revolve around repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear that reach a peak within minutes, known as panic attacks. Anxiety disorders can interfere with daily activities and be difficult to control but are most often out of proportion to the actual danger. You may actively avoid places, people, or situations to prevent anxiety.

Fortunately, the field of mental health treatment is greatly advancing, and innovative new treatments are making it easier and easier to find a treatment that works for you. With the advent of Ketamine Infusion Therapy, people suffering from anxiety disorders are finding relief from their symptoms within hours of treatment, rather than the weeks that more traditional medications may take.

How Does Ketamine Treatment for Anxiety Work?

Exactly how Ketamine treats anxiety disorders is still being researched. The current understanding is that Ketamine binds to receptors in the brain that increases the amount of a neurotransmitter, glutamate, is released. This will then set off a chain of reactions within the brain that affects thinking and emotional regulation.

To put this in simpler terms, the brain reacts to Ketamine in a way that triggers hormones that help create more positive emotions. This can occur within minutes after a person receives their infusion, but some people may need several treatments before they experience the highest level of benefits.
