Ketamine is an FDA-approved anesthetic and a potential breakthrough treatment option for psychiatric disorders and chronic pain.
Ketamine has shown promising results in managing major depressive disorder (MDD), bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and post-operative and chronic pain.
While the exact mechanism of action of ketamine is unknown, ketamine appears to increase the glutamate level in the brain and reduce inflammation signals.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is an FDA approved, non-drug, non-invasive treatment for Depression, Anxiety, OCD and other mental health issues.
Our brains rely on very important chemicals called neurotransmitters to generate many of the functions that are essential to not be depressed or anxious.
Neurotransmitters, like serotonin and dopamine, carry messages across different parts of the brain.
Neurotransmitters are associated with many things, including attention and mood regulation.
Dopamine and serotonin are two neurotransmitters that are specifically associated with depression.
Dopamine makes you feel alert, focused, motivated, and happy.
Serotonin helps you sleep well, it helps your memory work well, it helps your sex life, and it helps you feel calm, relaxed, and happy.
No matter what you might try to do to fight your depression and anxiety, your brain has to have healthy levels of these neurotransmitters and they have to be circulating through your brain.
Healthy neurotransmitter functioning is essential!
The link between the gut and the brain is a fascinating and complex area of study known as the
gut-brain axis. This bidirectional communication system involves the central nervous system
(CNS) and the enteric nervous system (ENS), which is often referred to as the “second brain” due
to its extensive network of neurons in the gastrointestinal tract.
