Integrative Health Services Q & A
What are integrative health services?
Integrative health goes above and beyond the traditional model of psychiatry, which focuses on treating the symptoms of mental health conditions. Instead, Dr. Jackson and the team at the Ketamine Treatment Center of East Tennessee strive to holistically heal your body, mind, and spirit using breakthrough ketamine therapies.
Depending on your needs, Dr. Jackson may recommend one or more of the following integrative health services:
Ketamine infusion therapy
You receive ketamine infusion therapy intravenously while you recline in a comfortable chair. A low dose of ketamine slowly enters your blood over the course of 40 minutes.
Spravato is an esketamine nasal spray that’s FDA-approved for adults with treatment-resistant depression and suicidal thoughts due to major depressive disorder. You can administer the spray yourself, but must take Spravato in the office, under the care of Dr. Jackson and his team.
Who are integrative health services for?
Dr. Jackson and the team at the Ketamine Treatment Center of East Tennessee treat adolescents and adults with complex and severe mental health conditions or chronic pain. You may be a candidate for integrative health services if you have one or more of the following:
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Chronic pain due to fibromyalgia or complex regional pain syndrome
Ketamine therapy isn’t a first-line treatment for any mental health or chronic pain condition. However, many people fail to achieve satisfactory relief, even after trying multiple conventional treatments.
What are the benefits of integrative health services?
Integrative health services provide much-needed hope for people who continue to experience debilitating symptoms of anxiety, depression, and chronic pain despite repeated attempts at treatment.
Additionally, some people can’t live with the side effects of medications, while others are concerned about their risk for addiction. Ketamine is not habit-forming, and it isn’t available for home use. Ketamine leaves your body quickly, which means any side effects are mild and brief.
Ketamine’s effects on reducing depression and suicidal thinking are rapid and strong. Whereas most antidepressants take weeks to reach a therapeutic level in your body, ketamine takes effect within an hour. Some people feel better after their first treatment but most require a series of treatments to achieve the desired effect.
