Should I Consider a Multifaceted Approach to Ketamine Therapy?

Should I Consider a Multifaceted Approach to Ketamine Therapy?

Much has been written lately regarding the connection between what you eat and how you feel.  This mind-body connection is well established. The only question is to what degree does it help?  

One of our guiding principles here at Ketamine Wellness Centers is the importance of a multifaceted approach to treatment.  We rely on strong interventions like ketamine to give enough of a “boost” to start healing. Then…… lifestyle changes and other strategies often help people maintain their better health.

We know a healthy lifestyle consists of multiple elements.  Things like adequate sleep, social support and exercise are invaluable.  Recent research shows that what you eat can have a profound effect as well.

Simple steps to improve your diet and help your mood:

  1. Eat less processed food. Anything prepared and packaged has many ingredients that may undermine your health and well-being.  Cooking simple things at home can be easy and cost effective. Don’t know how to cook? It’s simple, especially if you practice.  
  2. Learn to use healthy seasonings.  Spices such as turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and chili peppers have anti-inflammatory properties that can help with pain and other difficulties.  Anti-inflammatories can not only help with disease prevention, they may help minimize depression symptoms as well. They also add flavor without negative ingredients such as salt or extra fats.
  3. Minimize the amount of salt, sugar and unhealthy fats.  Healthy fats include olive oil, avocado and walnuts.
  4. Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables.  Decrease your consumption of animal products.
  5. Make your meal special.  Take the time to prepare something for yourself, and the time to eat with enjoyment.  Recognize that cooking for yourself is an act of self-love, and appreciate that which you give to yourself.

At KWC, we view nutrition as a part of a healthy lifestyle to support improved mental and physical functioning and well-being.  Many factors can play a role in your health. Our multidisciplinary team is available to discuss with you how ketamine can start your journey to better health and well-being. Call 855-KET-WELL and start to feel better!
