Is Ketamine a Cure for Depression?

Is Ketamine a Cure for Depression?

Ketamine has been around for many years as a safe anesthetic but the last decade has proven its efficacy in treating depression. Ketamine does not work for everyone, why, we don’t know. However for those it has worked for they are quick to sing it’s praises and even claim they are “cured” from their depression. Can Ketamine cure depression? We do know it is a powerful neuro-regenerator and by activating the idle neurons people seem to get un-stuck. They are then able to make other life changes, that in the past they haven’t had the motivation or energy for, to continue their journey to wellness.

Chemotherapy is considered a “cure” for cancer, it works for some but not for everyone, and on some cancers more effectively than others. However cancer cells can reform at a later point in life, through no fault of the individual. Another round of chemotherapy or radiation can successfully destroy the cancer cells and the individual may become cancer free again, sometimes referred to as remission. This is true with depression as well, your neurons can weaken again, and the disease returns. However, when we engage in a healthy lifestyle the human body’s natural endorphins, antigens, antibodies, interferons, and inflammatory responses all have a much better chance for health and growth.

So does Ketamine cure depression? From my experience, Ketamine infusion therapy can induce remission, much like in cancer treatment, where the symptoms of depression dissipate and people are “cured”. When given correctly in a controlled setting, Ketamine has the ability to flip the proverbial switch. Unlike the pharmaceutical commercials like to portray, you most likely won’t be twirling in a field of sunflowers. You will still have good days and bad days, we all do, but you will be able to manage and conquer the bad days and look forward to tomorrow. Ketamine can, and has re-lit the pilot light on the human furnace, the brain. The individual then must keep that light strong through maintenance and dedication to complete body and mind wellness. But the fact that an individual can make positive changes and no longer feels that life is not worth living is the greatest sign they are “cured.”
