Patients suffering from treatment resistant depression who have tried ECT know it can have varying levels of effectiveness and is very expensive. Ketamine treatment for depression, PTSD, anxiety, and addiction have been shown to be more effective, quicker acting, and far more cost effective. At Kismet Clinic in Boca Raton Florida one of the leading ketamine treatment centers in the World is treating a lot of patients who have previously had ECT treatments. The ketamine works within minutes, and studies show that it is effective for more than 70% of patients. Electro Convulsive Therapy on the other hand takes time to work, has varying degrees of effectiveness, and is very expensive. Dr John Sortino Medical Director has treated many people with Ketamine who have previously tried ECT previously and they are seeing immediate and lasting effects from ketamine treatments. “The science on ECT is imprecise, you are literally shocking areas of the brain to attempt to stimulate a positive reaction, with ketamine the metabolization that occurs is building new neural pathways without having to use electric shocking.” Said Dr Sortino. Kismet Clinic in Palm Beach County uses a holistic approach by combining ketamine infusions, with meditation, and a specially formulated low dose ketamine nasal spray for long-term aftercare. “By combining the breakthrough ketamine treatments with a daily meditation practice we are giving our patients a mind and body experience that will allow them a lifetime of healing.
