Stella Ketamine Therapy on The Adam Carolla Show

Introduction to Innovative Treatments

In a recent episode of The Adam Carolla Show, Dr. Brian Boyle and Dr. Eugene Lipov joined the show to discuss innovative treatments for severe depression and PTSD, providing new hope for individuals struggling with these debilitating conditions.

The conversation focused on cutting-edge therapies like ketamine infusions, Spravato and Stella's advanced stellate ganglion block (SGB), highlighting their potential to significantly alleviate symptoms where traditional treatments often fail.

The Promise of Ketamine Therapy

Dr. Boyle, a leading authority on ketamine, emphasized its rapid effectiveness in treating treatment-resistant depression. He underscored the importance of clinical supervision, explaining that the controlled medical setting is crucial to ensure both the safety and efficacy of ketamine therapy.

Dr. Boyle's insights shed light on the stark contrast between the benefits of professionally administered treatments and the risks associated with unsupervised use. He noted that under proper guidance, patients could experience remarkable improvements, often within hours or days, offering a lifeline to those who have not responded to conventional medications.

Understanding the Role of Norepinephrine

Dr. Lipov, a pioneer in DSR SGB for trauma therapy, elaborated on the role of elevated norepinephrine levels in individuals who have experienced significant trauma. He explained how treatments like ketamine and SGB could reduce the overactivity of this stress hormone, thus lowering the risk of depression and PTSD.

Dr. Lipov's expertise highlighted the biological underpinnings of these mental health challenges and the potential of these innovative therapies to address them more effectively than traditional methods.

The Game-Changing Potential of DSR SGB

Dr. Lipov also discussed how the stellate ganglion block (SGB) could be a game-changer for individuals suffering from PTSD. By targeting the stellate ganglion—a cluster of nerves in the neck that can influence the body's fight-or-flight response—SGB can help reset the nervous system, reducing symptoms of anxiety and hyperarousal.

The treatment has shown promising results in both clinical trials and real-world applications, providing lasting relief for many patients.

The podcast underscored the necessity of personalized, evidence-based treatments to manage and potentially alleviate the impacts of trauma and severe depression.

Dr. Boyle and Dr. Lipov's insights highlighted the potential of these therapies to improve the quality of life for millions of people. For more information on these groundbreaking treatments, speak to a care advocate at Stella by calling 908-293-7559.
