TAMPA, FL, April 29, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- IV therapy has increasingly grown in popularity thanks to its unique ability to provide the body with necessary vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other components quickly and effectively. These treatments are administered intravenously (through the bloodstream), which enable them to be directly absorbed into the body and avoid passing through the digestive tract. IV therapy can be beneficial for everyone, from high-performance athletes to everyday individuals suffering from chronic fatigue. The ingredients can be specifically customized to your health concerns and goals to remedy a multitude of ailments, including:
Acute and chronic muscle spasms
Now, IV ketamine infusion is even being used to treat those suffering from chronic pain or who may be resistant to standard depression management.
What Is Ketamine Infusion and What Are Its Benefits?
Ketamine was initially FDA approved as an anesthetic and is known for its sedative (sleep-inducing) and analgesic (pain-relieving) properties.
With intravenous use, low doses of ketamine can be effectively and safely used for chronic pain conditions, including neuropathic pain, spinal injuries, cancer, and fibromyalgia. This particular treatment is beneficial to patients who have been taking opioids to relieve their pain, which can become addictive and eventually ineffective. It may also be an alternative option for patients considering a serious and invasive surgery to alleviate pain.
IV ketamine infusion has also been shown to treat those with drug-resistant depression. The treatment works much more quickly than typical antidepressant drugs, which some feel may play an impactful role in preventing suicide in those with life-threatening thoughts. Ketamine treatments work differently from SSRI (Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors), increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain, thereby managing an individual's anxiety and/or depression. Instead, ketamine is believed to repair damage to the brain caused by cortisol and other long-term stress hormones, which may build up in the brain over time.
