Learn about Ketamine's Incredible Healing

What is Ketamine?

 Ketamine is an anesthetic medication developed in the 1960’s. When administered in small doses by a healthcare professional it has shown to be safe and effective for depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, Chronic pain and migraines. The anesthetic medication blocks NMDA receptors allowing the brain to connect to receptors that may have been blocked due to dramatic events or instances.  Ketamine stimulates brain activity in the parts of your brain that receive pain signals and regulate your mood, often more rapidly than antidepressants. The therapy often provides significant relief of symptoms within 4-72 hours.  

According to the National Institute of Health, Ketamine therapy is “the greatest advancement in depression research in 50 years”. Ketamine IV therapy is the most advanced and innovative medicine available on the market, studies show that 85% of patients experienced improvement in their overall condition. 

Ketamine and Depression

Depression is one of the leading illnesses causing life disabilities and difficulties. Ketamine IV therapy can effectively treat depression safely to those suffering from mild to severe depression. If you have exhausted all your resources and have found little or no relief from traditional medications when it comes to treating your depression, then Ketamine IV therapy may be a way for you to relieve many if not all of your symptoms. Ketamine is not a cure for depression, however 85% of patients have found comfort and relief with the help of IV Ketamine. In March 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved ketamine for the treatment of depression — the first new antidepressant medication in decades. Unlike previous generations of antidepressants, ketamine targets the neurotransmitter glutamate. And, a single dose can work in just a few hours and the effects persist for weeks.

Ketamine and PTSD

Studies have shown that someone suffering from PTSD have experienced a significant and swift reduction of PTSD symptoms after using Ketamine treatments.  Through Ketamine treatments, patients have been able to become aware of the traumatic events and able to learn how to cope with these events in their life. 

Ketamine for PTSD stimulates the brain allowing it to release a hormone called glutamate. This hormone allows the brain to regenerate and regrow the neurotransmitters giving the brain the ability to repair and subside the symptoms of PTSD. 

Ketamine and Migraines

Migraine pain is notoriously difficult to treat. However a new study shows that the drug ketamine may provide relief to patients for whom other drugs have been ineffective.

 Patients who received ketamine infusions for migraines that haven’t responded to any other therapies went from a 7.5 pain scale to a 3.4.

Ketamine and Chronic Pain

Ketamine can reset and restore the neurotransmitters that are responsible for the body to communicate.  Ketamine infusion therapy allows these transmitters to be restored allowing them to create new paths and restore the body to a healthy state. New research has shown that small doses of ketamine administered by a licensed professional can have astonishing results with just a few treatments.

Ketamine and OCD

New research shows that Ketamine infusion therapy treatments bring relief to a significant portion of people suffering from OCD by allowing neurotransmitters to be blocked. In some cases, a single low dose of Ketamine showed significant decrease in OCD symptoms.

Patients with OCD tend to have higher levels of glutamate, which is a hormone and neurotransmitter in the brain that is responsible for the thought process in the brain. Ketamine moderates the effects of glutamate which in turn blocks other neurotransmitters from affecting the brain in a negative way. Ketamine also regenerates and regrows new transmitters in order to form new pathways for clearer thoughts and actions. In a sense, it is reprogramming the brain to think and react differently in a non-OCD pattern.
