Effective immediately, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of Spravato (esketamine) nasal spray for the treatment of treatment-resistant depression, more commonly known as TRD.
Below is the story of Michael, a NeuroMend patient, whose life was changed drastically after he began ketamine infusions to treat his treatment-resistant depression. Below is his powerful testimonial; a story worth retelling for depression sufferers everywhere−to let you know that there is hope.
“Last week I completed my sixth ketamine infusion at Neuromend Infusion Therapy in Lafayette, La. I have been struggling with depression off and on my entire life. The 7th grade was the first time I remember feeling uncomfortable, on the outside and not a "part of". I also experienced horrible stomach aches almost daily. The doctors never found anything wrong with me physically so they chalked it up as stress. I was athletic, had plenty friends, and lacked nothing as a child. There was no cause that I could see. It would get better for a couple years then I would relapse into another depression. This happened in 7th grade, 10th grade, then again as a freshman in college and would continue for my entire life. In high school I started self-medicating with alcohol and other drugs. Until that in itself became problematic.
If you're from Lafayette or have spent more than a few hours here, you know how harsh the weather can be on your body. Staying properly hydrated is vital for handling the South Louisiana climate. All critical bodily functions require water, making it an essential part of living a healthy life. It lubricates the joints and eyes, keeps skin healthy by eliminating toxins, and facilitates proper digestion.
Balance is the key to a healthy life, but it can be difficult to achieve. Hectic schedules, responsibilities, and a culture that doesn't allow us to slow down; something always seems to get in the way of obtaining optimum health.

New year. New me.
Every January, motivation hits and we become determined that this is the year we will make major improvements in our lives. We sit down with a pen and paper and list all the things that we plan to change in the upcoming year. For those struggling with depression, finding the motivation to make improvements for the new year can seem daunting. When each day is a struggle to get out of bed, how can one even begin to contemplate gathering the motivation to make life-altering changes.
The research suggests otherwise.
Well, it's that time of year again.
The smell of pumpkin spice is in the air, sappy movies have us wondering why we can't find our lover to kiss under the mistletoe, and the family debate has begun on where everyone will be getting together to open presents.

It is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, right?
Then why do so many of us dread this season and the blues it brings with it?
