Spravato is a new FDA-approved medication that works for major depressive disorder and treatment-resistant depression. Studies show that Spravato works to reverse depressive symptoms, despite the cause. Studies also show that Spravato is working in every patient category, meaning all ages, genders, races, and duration of depression. Whether it is depression from trauma, menopause, post-partum, life events, or any other reason, Spravato is showing incredibly high rates of remission across the board for everyone. Spravato is working when nothing else has, and in ways other antidepressants never could.
Major depressive disorder and treatment-resistant depression is reversing into complete remission with Spravato nasal spray. Despite who you are or how you got to where you are, Spravato offers hope in better days.
Spravato works differently than other antidepressants in its mechanism of action to stimulate areas of the brain to activate neuroplasticity, or the process of brain change. Neurogenesis (“neuro”= “nerve cells” + “genesis” = “creation”) occurs during Spravato and ketamine treatment, which builds new neural pathways and activates new functionality in the brain. This is one of the main reasons patients are finding remission from depression after Spravato treatment when other medicines were not helpful. It is essentially helping patients rewire their brains for contentedness, happiness, and productivity when prior brain circuitry continually evoked anxiety, depression, and fatigue. Spravato patients are quite literally empowering their brains to operate more effectively; potentially better than before their depression began.
Additionally, Spravato has been shown to control the influence of neural pathway signaling downstream which is thought to positively affect future brain chemistry. This is one of the main reasons Spravato patients continue to improve even after treatment. The treatment itself activates areas of the brain that were dormant or damaged or neglected and enables them to repair and continue operating optimally on their own. This enhances the functionality of other brain regions to form repaired synaptic connections with stronger neuronal flow between them.
Spravato patients’ brain function improves and brain structures repair. The Spravato treatment is not only helping patients feel better, but it is allowing them to build a healthier brain for increased wellbeing long into the future after treatment has ended. Additionally, studies show these benefits to the brain are magnified when the patient is also engaging in therapy. The theory behind this is that, as the brain is essentially repairing itself, it is doing so in the healthiest way and with guidance.
The benefits of Spravato treatments are rapid. A decrease in depression is often reported after the first few treatment sessions! Patients, then, continue to show long-lasting improvements to mood, behavior, capabilities, and perception months into the future.
More studies on Spravato are continually performed, and all statistical signs thus far point to lasting remission from depression from treatment with Spravato nasal spray. A healthier brain creates a happier mind.
Ketamine is an FDA-approved medication for anesthesia that has been used safely for 50 years. Today, ketamine also shows promise as a treatment for depression, anxiety, and PTSD. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) has placed ketamine on its list of “Essential Medicines.”
Ketamine infusion therapy has been the object of scientific inquiry for those suffering from symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and pain syndromes since the early 2000’s. Ketamine acts on a part of the brain that is involved in consciousness, learning, memory, and mood regulation. By altering the activity of this brain system, ketamine can help to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety. It is thought to work by changing the activity of a neurotransmitter called glutamate, and has shown promise as a treatment for depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD.)
Many people who have lived their entire lives struggling with depression, anxiousness, fear, or pain are finding relief and truly living life again in a profound and meaningful way.
