IV Ketamine Therapy Can Help Where Other Treatments Have Failed
Over the last decade, Yale University, The National Institutes of Health and many other academic institutions identified additional benefits of ketamine in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, childhood trauma, addiction and chronic pain. The use of ketamine for depression has been named as potentially “the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades” by Thomas Insel, Director of the National Institute of Mental Health (2002-2015).
How Does Intravenous Ketamine Work?
Applying ketamine through an intravenous drip allows your body the maximum absorption of ketamine. For some, ketamine can provide rapid relief from mental health and chronic pain symptoms within hours to days.
As a non-competitive NMDA antagonist, ketamine allows the NMDA receptor to cause a surge in glutamate, a vital neurotransmitter for memory, stress regulation, and mood regulation. Ketamine also causes the release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) that is responsible for neuroplasticity or growth of the brain while establishing new connections between neurons. This can provide long-term release from mental health conditions and chronic pain syndromes.
