Effective Treatments for PTSD and Depression: Stella's Multi-Modality Protocol

Effective Treatments for PTSD and Depression: Stella's Multi-Modality Protocol


Understanding the best approaches to mental health care is crucial, as the right treatments can significantly improve the quality of life for those affected by PTSD, anxiety and depression. Our groundbreaking multi-modality protocol, which combines Dual Sympathetic Reset (DSR), an advanced stellate ganglion block (SGB) with ketamine infusions, can help.

This innovative approach has shown incredible promise in treating symptoms of depression, anxiety and PTSD, offering significant relief and a brighter future for our patients. 


Key Findings

Stella's recent study highlights the profound impact of combining DSR SGB with ketamine infusions:

Significant Reduction in Depression Symptoms:

  • 83.7% decrease in depression symptoms was observed in patients following the combined treatment of DSR SGB and ketamine infusions.
  • In contrast, patients who received onle DSR SGB experienced a 59.5% decrease in depression symptoms.

Dramatic Decrease in PTSD Symptoms:

  • The combination of DSR SGB and ketamine infusions resulted in a 76.9% decrease in PTSD symptoms.

Enhanced Relief for Non-Combat Related Trauma:

  • Patients who experienced non-combat related traumas reported greater relief compared to those who had combat and/or warfare-related traumas.




The Multi-Modality Protocol: A Closer Look

DSR SGB (Dual Sympathetic Reset Stellate Ganglion Block):

  • DSR SGB is a procedure that targets the sympathetic nervous system to reset its function, which is often dysregulated in individuals with PTSD, anxiety and depression.
  • This procedure involves an injection of local anesthetic near the stellate ganglion, a group of nerves in the neck, which can interrupt the sympathetic response and alleviate symptoms.

Ketamine Infusion Therapy:

  • Ketamine, traditionally used as an anesthetic, has been found to have rapid-acting antidepressant properties.
  • In controlled infusions, ketamine can provide significant relief from depression and PTSD symptoms, particularly in patients who have not responded to other treatments.


The Power of Combining Therapies

The data underscores the superior efficacy of combining DSR SGB with ketamine infusions over using DSR SGB alone. The dual approach addresses both the physiological and psychological aspects of depression and PTSD, offering a more comprehensive treatment option.

Implications for Treatment

These findings suggest a promising direction for mental health treatment protocols, particularly for those suffering from severe depression, anxiety and PTSD. The multi-modality approach could become a standard practice, potentially improving the quality of life for countless individuals.




Stella's multi-modality protocol represents a significant advancement in the treatment of depression and PTSD. With an 83.7% decrease in depression symptoms and a 76.9% decrease in PTSD symptoms, this combined therapy offers hope and substantial relief for patients.

As mental health treatment continues to evolve, Stella's innovative approach may pave the way for more effective and comprehensive care strategies.
