Everyone experiences occasional anxiety. However, people suffering from excessive worry and fear on a daily basis may suffer from an anxiety disorder. These disorders often revolve around repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear that reach a peak within minutes, known as panic attacks. Anxiety disorders can interfere with daily activities and be difficult to control, but are most often out of proportion to the actual danger. You may actively avoid places, people, or situations to prevent anxiety.
Fortunately, the field of mental health treatment is greatly advancing, and innovative new treatments are making it easier and easier to find a treatment that works for you. With the advent of Ketamine Infusion Therapy, people suffering from anxiety disorders are finding relief from their symptoms within hours of treatment, rather than the weeks that more traditional medications may take.

There are several different types of depressive disorders that are defined by the severity of the symptoms and how long they last. Certain lifestyle changes, such as having a baby, may also be used to determine which types of depression a person is experiencing.
What leads someone to develop an anxiety disorder is still not fully understood. Traumatic events or life experiences may trigger these disorders in people already prone to anxiety, but inherited traits can also be a factor.
For some people, their anxiety disorder may be linked to underlying health issues, but in other cases, anxiety symptoms can be the first indicators of a medical illness.
Exactly how Ketamine treats anxiety disorders is still being researched. The current understanding is that Ketamine binds to receptors in the brain that increases the amount of a neurotransmitter, glutamate, that is released. This will then set off a chain of reactions within the brain that affects thinking and emotional regulation.
To put this in simpler terms, the brain reacts to Ketamine in a way that triggers hormones that help create more positive emotions. This can occur within just hours after a person receives their first infusion, but some people may need several treatments before they experience the highest level of benefits.
