Chronic Stress

Chronic stress is a pervasive condition that can profoundly affect one’s health and well-being. KetaMIND Clinics South Africa (KCSA) is dedicated to offering outpatient infusion therapies that target and mitigate the symptoms of chronic stress, helping patients regain their balance and enhance their overall quality of life. 

What is chronic stress, and what causes it?

Chronic stress is the response to emotional pressure suffered for a prolonged period over which an individual perceives they have little or no control. It involves an endocrine system response to which corticosteroids are released. 

While occasional stress can cause minor headaches and mood swings, chronic stress can lead to serious health issues like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, and anxiety. 

The causes of chronic stress are varied and can include high-pressure jobs, financial difficulties, challenging relationships, or health issues. People may also experience chronic stress from traumatic events that leave them feeling powerless and without control over their situation. 

How can infusion therapy help with chronic stress?

Infusion therapy for chronic stress uses a specifically formulated dissociative anaesthetic known for its ability to reset the stress response systems in the brain. 

By targeting areas of the brain involved in the stress response, these infusions can help reduce the body’s stress-related chemical signals, alleviate the physical and psychological burden of stress, and promote a state of calm and relaxation.

How does the treatment work?

The treatment involves administering a series of controlled infusions that act directly on the central nervous system. These infusions help to modulate the overactive neural pathways that are often responsible for chronic stress. 

By calming these pathways, infusion therapy can lead to reductions in physical symptoms of stress, such as fatigue, headaches, and muscle tension, as well as psychological symptoms, such as irritability and anxiety. 

Do you offer comprehensive care and support at KCSA?

Pre-Treatment Assessment

Before beginning treatment, each patient undergoes a comprehensive evaluation to tailor the infusion therapy to their specific symptoms and needs. This assessment helps to ensure the most effective treatment plan is devised and that any concerns about the infusion process are addressed upfront. 

Ongoing Support and Counselling

KCSA is committed to providing holistic care. Beyond the psychological treatment for chronic stress, we offer ongoing support and counselling. Our team of healthcare professionals, including clinical psychologists, is available to provide continuous support. They work with patients to develop stress management strategies and lifestyle adjustments that contribute to long-term health and stress reduction. 

For those dealing with the debilitating effects of chronic stress and seeking innovative treatments beyond traditional methods, infusion therapy provides a promising outcome. We invite you to contact us for more information or to schedule a consultation.
