If you’ve ever struggled with a mood disorder or chronic pain, you know that traditional treatments and medications may just not be enough. But there is hope. Ketamine is an FDA-approved medication that is administered as an infusion into the bloodstream, specifically designed to provide rapid relief of your symptoms. Time and again, patients have experienced relief in as little as 4-6 hours, however, others experience more gradual results over several sessions.
Mental health disorders have been safely treated with ketamine since the 1970s.
Used for decades as an anesthetic, ketamine is a breakthrough treatment for mood and pain disorders. Ketamine infusions are well-researched, safe, and clinically proven to provide relief for a variety of chronic symptoms.
You’re here because you want to know what ketamine can do for you. You want to feel like yourself again; to show up at work without pain, to enjoy your family and friends outside the fog of depression. You’ve tried everything else. Nothing has helped, and all you want is a relief.
You wonder if ketamine can help you when nothing else has.
Let’s take a closer look at what it could do for you.
Ketamine therapy has been shown to help numerous conditions including major depressive disorder or severe, treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, anxiety, OCD, bipolar disorder, postpartum depression and suicidal ideation.
Traditional antidepressants are slower to take effect because they require new brain cells to form before offering relief. Ketamine, however, increases neurotransmitter levels like glutamate, which strengthens connections between cells already existing in the brain, allowing noticeable results much more quickly.
Chronic pain treatment is how ketamine originally came into clinical use.
In addition to increasing glutamate to alleviate both mood and pain symptoms, ketamine also strengthens opioid receptors in the brain, making it a perfect partner therapy for other pain medications.
