“Inside my own brain, I was worth nothing.”
Melody is a former army vet, nurse, teacher, and most importantly, a devoted mother and partner.
Lifetime challenges with depression, anxiety, and PTSD led her to seek talk therapy for 20+ years. But therapy only helped in the short-term. And she was cautious of all medicinal interventions.
After extensive research, she learned about ketamine treatment’s positive effects on depression and anxiety, and how it continues to help others. That’s why Melody chose Mindbloom.

Ketamine has been reported to produce issues including, but not limited to, those listed below. However, lasting adverse side-effects are rare when medical protocols are carefully followed.

- In rare cases, frequent, heavy users have reported increased frequency of urination, urinary incontinence, pain urinating, passing blood in the urine, or reduced bladder size
- Ketamine may worsen problems in people with schizophrenia, severe personality disorders, or other serious mental disorders.
- Users with a personal or family history of psychosis should be cautious using any psychoactive substance, including ketamine, and discuss potential risks with your MindBloom clinician before proceeding with treatment.
- The dissociative effects of ketamine may increase patient vulnerability and the risk of accidents.
To promote positive outcomes and ensure safety, follow these ketamine treatment guidelines:
