Discover how ketamine-assisted therapy may offer a solution where traditional treatments have fallen short.

Anxiety disorders represent the most prevalent mental health issues globally, affecting an estimated 301 million people in 2019, with a noted increase from previous years. 

This condition disproportionately affects women more than men and often begins during childhood or adolescence. Despite the availability of effective treatments, only about a quarter of those with anxiety disorders receive the necessary care. 

At Nushama, we offer a new hope: ketamine-assisted therapy, a groundbreaking approach with the potential to change lives.

How Ketamine Therapy Works for Anxiety

Ketamine offers rapid symptom relief by fostering neural plasticity and creating new neural connections. It “resets” the brain’s response to stress, opening doors to healing when other treatments have failed. Our process includes an initial consultation, preparation sessions, monitored ketamine infusions, and integration therapy for comprehensive care.

Our Approach at Nushama

Transforming Lives with Innovative Care

Your journey to overcoming anxiety begins with a detailed assessment and a personalized treatment plan. From preparation to integration therapy post-ketamine sessions, our team ensures a safe, supportive experience focused on long-term anxiety management strategies.

Ketamine Infusions Protocol

01

Medical Assessment

We assess your medical history and medication to confirm ketamine is an appropriate treatment. Pre-treatment testing can include urine and blood tests, blood pressure and EKG.

02

Preparation

Ketamine therapy is unlike any other treatment you are likely to have encountered, so preparing your mind and body for the experience is critical. We’ll give you information on how to cultivate a positive mindset in the weeks leading up to your journey. We will also encourage you to set an intention before each infusion—a goal or purpose for your journey that will help direct the experience and gather insights—and then “let go.”

03

Psychedelic Treatment Sessions

Nushama physicians or doctors typically administer 6 treatments/infusions over a 3-6 week period, receiving up to 2 infusions per week. The treatments take place in a serene environment with ambient music. Vitals and anesthesia levels are constantly monitored by Nushama doctors and nurses to ensure the highest level of safety.

Integration

Licensed therapists or trained integration coaches work with members with the intention of helping them glean insights after each journey to integrate into their daily lives. Integration can also include practices like yoga, journaling, meditation, mindfulness techniques, or listening to music from the treatment. The idea is to help individuals tap into their inner healer for lasting change.

05

Follow-up

If a member does not have a therapist (or would like additional support), Nushama therapists work with members to integrate learnings into their daily lives for lasting results. Some members may also benefit from additional “booster” sessions. Psychedelics are transformative medicines, but healing requires more than the experience of the journey.

Understanding Anxiety

Anxiety is more than just feeling stressed or worried. For those affected, it can be a daily struggle, impacting work, relationships, and overall quality of life. While there are many treatment options available, not everyone finds relief through traditional methods. At Nushama, we offer a new hope: ketamine-assisted therapy, a groundbreaking approach with the potential to change lives.

Anxiety disorders represent the most prevalent mental health issues globally, affecting an estimated 301 million people in 2019, with a noted increase from previous years. This condition disproportionately affects women more than men and often begins during childhood or adolescence. Despite the availability of effective treatments, only about a quarter of those with anxiety disorders receive the necessary care, often due to barriers such as lack of awareness and social stigma.

The landscape of anxiety disorders and their impact varies significantly by demographics and social factors. For instance, prevalence rates can differ by educational level, with individuals having some college education experiencing the highest rates of anxiety. Workplace stress also significantly contributes to anxiety levels, with a majority of American workers reporting at least moderate stress, which often negatively affects their personal lives and relationships.
