Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Suicide often follows depression when it goes unchecked. Depression is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. “Recent data suggest that ketamine, given intravenously, might be the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades,” according to Dr. Thomas Insel, the former Director of the National Institute of Mental Health.
For the past two decades researchers at Yale University, the National Institute of Health, Harvard University, John Hopkins University, Mount Sinai Medical School, Stanford University, among others, have studied ketamine given intravenously for the treatment of major depressive disorder. Their findings have been consistently groundbreaking. In study after study, 70% of subjects suffering from treatment-resistant depression have been relieved of their depression.
