The wellness clinic’s announcement coincides with a study published in the National Library of Medicine. According to the research, about 30% of patients diagnosed with major depressive disorder and taking antidepressants are considered treatment-resistant. Ketamine infusions reportedly “reboot” the synapses or signals in the brain, offering a different approach to treating or managing treatment-resistant depression – and the clinic is raising awareness of the growing science behind ketamine therapy by making more options available for individuals with depression.
Unlike conventional antidepressants that regulate the patient’s neurotransmitters by blocking reuptake , ketamine therapy builds stronger synapses and increases the production of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factors (BDNF), explains the clinic. Healthier synapses translate to fewer mood swings and better mental health.
Additional support is given during treatment sessions, including continuous end-tidal CO2 monitoring for those with cardiovascular or respiratory issues. Patients are encouraged to track their moods via the Osmind app to help doctors alter the treatment plan if needed. Changes in diet and lifestyle, or incorporating movement, breath work, and meditation, may be recommended as part of the patient’s overall treatment plan.
