Depression Q & A

What Nova Vita Wellness Services help with depression?

What are the symptoms of depression?

Depression symptoms usually include at least some of the following issues.

  • Powerful feelings of sadness
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Loss of interest in usual activities
  • Withdrawal from loved ones
  • Insomnia or excessive sleeping
  • Weight loss or gain
  • Persistent fatigue
  • Thoughts of self-harm
  • Suicidal ideation

Your medical care provider at Nova Vita Wellness Centers may determine IV ketamine therapy for depression is right for you if you have symptoms that persist for at least two weeks, and those symptoms represent a notable change in your ability to function normally.

If you are feeling depressed, it is important to get help right away. If you find that therapy and other medications aren't working, Nova Vita Wellness Centers specializes in providing relief of major depressive disorder.

What are the treatment options for severe depression?

There are a variety of treatment options for depression, with the two most common being antidepressant medications and psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is certainly helpful, but it does take some time to see benefits, so it’s usually part of a treatment plan that includes medication. 

Unfortunately, many people experience a lot of frustration with depression treatment because antidepressants take weeks (or months) to start working. Also, antidepressants don’t work the same way for everyone, so you might need to try two, three, four, or more drugs before you find one that helps.

If you’re living with depression and you can’t find a treatment that works for you, IV ketamine therapy at Nova Vita Wellness Centers can relieve your symptoms faster and more effectively than oral medication.

How does ketamine treat depression?

Ketamine was first used as an anesthetic, but today it increasingly helps people who have frustrating long-term depression that doesn’t respond to other treatments. 

Ketamine prompts production of an important brain neurotransmitter called glutamate, which encourages your brain to develop new, neural healthy connections. This means that ketamine can essentially help your brain to develop new wiring and adapt to healthier thought patterns. 

Research shows that ketamine may also reduce inflammation and improve specific aspects of brain communication. There are still some unknowns about how ketamine works, but regardless, it can be a true game-changing treatment for people who struggle with chronic depression.

Ketamine also helps people with chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and severe anxiety to live more comfortable lives, free from the frustrating confines of their condition.
