Depression can be treated in a number of ways. The traditional SSRI treatment is effective for some, but not for everyone. Studies on ketamine have shown that it is very helpful with depression, especially when other treatments have not been able to help as much.
Psychedelic therapy is growing in popularity. There are many options for choosing a center to receive treatment, but it’s important to choose the right one.
Ketamine has different effects at different doses. It is used by doctors for a range of purposes including pain relief, sedation, anesthesia and psychedelic therapy.
If you’re considering psychedelic therapy, then set and setting cannot be overstated. Your environment and state of mind is so important to the quality of your psychedelic trip. And there are a number of factors to consider. One, in particular, is whether to take the psychedelics on your own or as part of a group.
Set and setting are important to the psychedelic experience. Sensory deprivation techniques are used in therapeutic settings to make it easier to have such an experience.
There are four unique methods of administration for ketamine during psychedelic therapy. These include intravenous infusion (IV), intramuscular injection (IM), lozenges and intranasal spray. IV infusion holds the distinction of being the most effective, safe, and well-researched method. Let’s take a look at why.
Microdosing is a common term that has become a part of the cultural vernacular. It is the practice of ingesting a very low dose of a psychedelic substance. A microdose is small enough that it does not impair “normal” functioning, but still has an effect.
Studies show that music is helpful in psychedelic therapy. It helps patients feel better, simplify mystical experiences, and improve memory.
Psychedelic therapy is finally making a comeback, and its return as a viable treatment option is thanks to the tireless efforts of Amanda Feilding.
