What is Major Depressive Disorder?
Major Depressive Disorder is a debilitating disorder characterized by low self-esteem, low energy, and low interest in doing anything enjoyable. The daily impact on one’s life, possibly your life, is often catastrophic, leading to poor work performance, difficult interpersonal relationships, and can ultimately progress to pervasive suicidal thoughts.
Approximately 15 million of the US teen/adult population suffers from MDD (including Post-Partum Depression), and unfortunately, one-third of those do not respond to any typical antidepressant therapy, compounding their illness further. Substance abuse is often a cofactor, making treatment even more challenging.
How Does Ketamine Help Depression?
As many as 75-80% of people with MDD have a significant improvement in their mood within hours of an infusion. MDD often goes hand in hand with chronic pain. Those with MDD often begin to have significant pain from no clear source, and conversely, those with chronic pain often progress to having Major Depressive Disorder due to the severity and unrelenting nature of their pain.
Following the completion of a WellCentric Health Induction Series, the WellCentric Health patient with MDD then engages in ongoing WellCentric Health Maintenance Therapy at a custom frequency that provides the level of relief to optimize daily function in one’s life. Many choose the WellCentric Health Wellness Plan to enhance and sustain their pain reduction in a more detailed and custom-tailored manner while lowering cost per treatment.
If MDD has you pinned down in this life, please take the next step towards the new and much happier life you deserve by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Watson to determine if you are a candidate. We will work in concert with your regular physician, should you have one, to ensure you have the best chance of success with Ketamine therapy.
