Frequently Asked Questions
It was first approved by the FDA for use as an anesthetic in the 1970s and has been researched and used for over 50 years. It is one of the World Health Organization's most widely used medications all over the world, and even with children, due to its exceptional safety profile. In the last 25 years, it has been recognized as a new hope for mental health treatment due to its fast-acting relief of depression, anxiety, and chronic pain symptoms. It is also a known anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial medicine, producing overall positive balance within the body.
Ketamine is widely viewed as safe, effective, and well-tolerated for most people (with the exception of individuals with uncontrolled high blood pressure, history of psychosis, or heart rhythm problems). Very low dose ketamine is considered safe when taken as prescribed by a medical provider.
Very low dose ketamine produces effects in around 3-5 days, and sparks the beginning of gradual and consistent mental health improvement. Unlike with typical antidepressants and anxiety medications, you will not need to wait 4-6 weeks to start seeing results.
You do not need to come off your medication to start ketamine. There are no known medication interactions with low dose ketamine. There is a very short list of medications that will counteract low dose ketamine, SSRIs and Benzodiazepines are not on that list. Our clients who continue to take their antidepressant and anxiety medications during this treatment have not experienced any problems.
This past year a patient came to us nearly hopeless. He had experienced multiple losses of loved ones and was finding it hard to stay positive/get out of a negative mindset. All other forms of treatment and therapy had rendered useless to him, and he felt like he had run out of options, until he heard of Joyous. After speaking with a medical professional he began daily treatments, and within the first month he was better able to handle his depressive moments and break free from his prolonged sadness. This patient had always been the life of the party, and after treatment he was able to regain that part of himself. Very low dose ketamine allowed him to enjoy life again and feel like his true self!
A patient came to us seeking help with his social and performance anxiety. He is an entertainer and had developed nearly debilitating performance anxiety that was making it difficult for him to work. Within one hour of his first dose of treatment he expressed "this is awesome. My brain feels like it's fully functioning but just giving me a break from like 70% of my thoughts." After about a month and a half of consistent treatment he reported feeling freer, more capable of handling anxious moments, and that his performance anxiety was essentially gone. Very low dose ketamine allowed him to take back his life and enjoy his passions again!
This past year a patient came to us nearly hopeless. She was unable to get a good nights rest and was feeling beyond exhausted and unmotivated. All other coping mechanisms and forms of treatment were unsuccessful. She had begun heavily drinking and taking CBD to try and calm her mind, but was ultimately feeling even worse from the negative side effects of alcohol. After speaking with a medical professional and learning about Joyous she began daily very low dose ketamine treatments, and within the first month she was having more restful nights. The Joyous treatment plan allowed her to enjoy life again and have energy to live life to the fullest!
The CEO of a commodity trading group came to us for help with calming his mind after his stressful work days. He told us he was unable to sleep or enjoy his personal life because work took such a toll on his mind. Prior to coming to us, his coping mechanism was to consume unhealthy amounts of alcohol. While the alcohol helped in the moment, it was causing long term effects the client disliked, such as weight gain and irritability. After beginning the Joyous treatments he expressed "I feel more like myself again! I am able to relax, sleep better, and I actually have the energy and motivation to workout before work." Very low dose ketamine allowed him to enjoy all aspects of his life and feel like himself again!
A professional chef was struggling with scoliosis and chronic back pain. To get through the day he had become dependent on opioids which was negatively affecting his family life and overall health. After he became aware of very low dose ketamine and began treatments he was able to stop taking opioids and feel like himself again. The treatments helped manage his pain without any of the negative side effects he was previously experiencing. He felt so good on this new regimen that he was more motivated than ever and embarked on a new journey of starting his own at-home chef business. Very low dose ketamine allowed him to enjoy all aspects of his life and feel like himself again!
