How Can We Help?
Treatment Resistant Depression and Anxiety Disorders
Citing a recent study, Cleveland Clinic noted that “Within 24 hours of receiving infusions, 70 percent of patients with treatment-resistant depression saw an improvement in symptoms.” As a result, they designated these infusions, one of The Top 10 Medical Innovations for 2017.
The ReviveMed program can alter the treatment pathway for sufferers of PTSD, TRD and Suicidality. The current treatments are vastly inadequate and have not significantly evolved in over 30 years. The ReviveMed program has the opportunity to:
- Move patients with chronic symptoms of PTSD and Depression, and acute symptoms of suicidality, into remission levels within one week.
- Enable improvement in quality of life outcomes for patients with functional recovery, within six months.
- Lead the field in translational research and epigenetics, utilising latest research capabilities to identify and intervene in impaired neural networks, and match the objective data with subjective measures of improvement.
If you have been referred to ReviveMed, it is likely that you are dealing with a Major Depressive Disorder that has not responded to other medication. You will likely have tried multiple SSRIs, SNRIs, Tricyclic or MAOI antidepressants, or even anti-psychotic medication. You may be considering ECT or TMS.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is best known for affecting veterans, police officers, and firefighters, but millions of others who have experienced or witnessed traumatic events suffer from PTSD as well. Left untreated, PTSD can lead to intrusive recurring memories, avoidance, hopelessness, detachment from family and friends, severe depression and anxiety, and even suicidal thoughts and actions.
Brain-Derived Neurotropic Factor (BDNF) is an important brain protein that is responsible for the maturation and maintenance of the neuronal dendrites and synapses that are necessary for normal brain connectivity. In order to maintain a normal mood, the neurons in various parts of your brain need to connect to each other via their dendrites and their synaptic contact. Childhood stress and anxiety inhibit the production of BDNF, leading to visible changes in neuroanatomy and subsequent serious mood disorders such as MDD, PTSD, OCD, and anxiety.
WHAT ABOUT ANXIETY?
Anxiety disorders also respond well to our ReviveMed treatment. Generalized anxiety is often brought on by stress and trauma and can lead to feelings of panic, heart palpitations, nausea, loss of appetite, or even a fear of dying. If you experience symptoms for a period of six months or more, you should seek a diagnosis for generalized anxiety or panic disorder. Anxiety disorders should always be treated in order to avoid worsening of symptoms or related disorders, such as depression.
