Prolonged negative thoughts have a close relationship with conditions like depression and anxiety. In the worst-case scenario, these thoughts can develop into suicidality if left unaddressed. If you’re experiencing these issues, our Ketamine Therapy treatments may help. These infusions have been shown to improve cognitive function, lower stress, and alleviate pain.
What Causes Negative Thoughts?
Negative thoughts can be caused by life experiences, genetic factors, and underlying conditions. Prolonged negativity can be a sign of depression or generalized anxiety disorder. Most intrusive thoughts are associated with the following:
- Fear of the future.
- Anxiety about the present.
- Shame about the past.
How Do We Address Negative Thoughts?
Numerous studies have shown that Ketamine Therapy can work as a fast-acting antidepressant. An infusion can alleviate symptoms such as negative thoughts within a matter of hours or days. Early small studies show that this treatment significantly and rapidly reduced depression symptoms in about 50-70% of patients.
What to Expect From Treatment
Ketamine Therapy is administered using a small IV catheter. The infusion typically takes 40-50 minutes and its effects often become apparent within 15 minutes of administration. The treatment is performed in the comfort of one of our offices. Once the infusion is complete, you will remain in our clinic for approximately 30 more minutes before you are released home with a friend or relative.
