Ketamine for Severe Anxiety

Ketamine treatment for anxiety

As many who suffer from it would agree, from a purely logical standpoint, anxiety is quite irrational. Most of the ”threats” in one’s life really don’t justify the response that patients with severe anxiety experience.

Getting rid of that destructive cycle of anxiety, however, is easier said than done. As with PTSD, people who experience severe anxiety are locked into a cycle of being constantly forced to listen to a noisy radio channel broadcasting the same self-destructive narrative over and over again. Whereas opioid medications can “turn down the volume” by suppressing some of the symptoms, the experiential and transformative experience of ketamine doesn’t just turn down the volume; more importantly, it allows patients to tune in to a different and far more pleasant mental space.

Is ketamine good for anxiety?

Ketamine therapy can produce substantially beneficial effects on patients suffering from severe anxiety disorder. However, the circumstances under which a patient receives ketamine treatment are vitally important. Our philosophy is to make sure that patients feel as comfortable as possible and that they understand the whole treatment procedure to significantly reduce the risk of anxiety symptomatology at a very primary stage.

We leverage the “psychedelic” aspect of ketamine in a safe and controlled way. Most of our patients with severe anxiety report that ketamine washes away their anxiety completely. Many have also reported that, as the session progressed, they became gradually disconnected from themselves, as if being outside observers of themselves, and were not able to remember what they were anxious about before the treatment.

How does ketamine treatment for anxiety work?

At Klarisana, we recommend an initial series of six intramuscular ketamine sessions spaced out over two to four weeks to treat mental health conditions. Each intramuscular session is about one hour long. During the Induction Series, patients are treated in a private room with careful monitoring and are presented with a personalized dosing plan designed by a dedicated and professional team in the best interest of augmenting each patient’s healing experience.

We progressively increase the dose of ketamine over the course of the Induction Series sessions to help the patient enter a powerful transpersonal and mystical space known as the Psychotropic Therapeutic Response. The Induction Series is a very dynamic process because who you are in terms of how you see yourself and your relationship with the world changes between each session. This constitutes a very disruptive concept in western medicine once the space in which we are operating synthesizes evidence-based pharmacologic treatment with a shamanistic element of guiding our patients through a profound mystical experience.
