Is Ketamine Right For you?

Do you suffer from a condition that prevents you from living life to its fullest?  Are you stuck in a rut that appears to be impossible to get out of? Ketamine just may be right for you to unlock your true potential.

Depression 

Yale scientists explain that many chronically depressed and treatment-resistant patients experience immediate relief from symptoms after taking small amounts of ketamine. Evidence suggests that Ketamine helps regenerate synaptic connections between brain cells damaged by stress and depression. Ketamine works with Glutamate, which is a different type of neurotransmitter system than common market antidepressants. Current antidepressants only work on 33% of the patients and results take months, while Ketamine demonstrates results in hours. “The rapid therapeutic response of ketamine in treatment-resistant patients is the biggest breakthrough in depression research in a half century,” Ketamine appears to help facilitate the creation new neural pathways that can help develop resiliency and protect against the return of the depression.” 

Chronic Pain 

Ketamine is very promising for people suffering from chronic pain syndromes, especially those with a neuropathic component. Ketamine can have an immediate affect in the neuropathic pain states and anti inflammatory effect at central sites. Studies also show positive effects lasting around 3 months for patients undergoing 4 days to two weeks of ketamine treatments. 

ADHD & TMS & Insomnia 

An  important neurotransmitter in our brain is glutamate, an amino acid found in 80% of neurons.  Glutamate influences the formation and number of brain synapses and works with GABA neurotransmitter to retain a healthy, fully functional nervous system. ketamine creates a balanced glutamate system by acting as a receptor “antagonist.” This balance can improve anxiety, insomnia, overstimulation and concentration issues. 

PTSD

In PTSD, there is “mounting evidence for a role of the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate in stress responsiveness, the formation of traumatic memories, and the pathophysiology of PTSD, raising the possibility of identifying novel glutamatergic interventions for this disorder. Ketamine may thus target the mechanisms involved in the consolidation of traumatic memory and may enable the brain to reconsolidate memory and release trauma.

Anxiety

Mood disorders have shown to be effected positively by Ketamine after a few sessions and potentially lasting for months. Ketamine helps the pathways of the neurotransmitters by balancing the nerve cells. This effects directly the patients emotions by recovering the cells damaged by stress.  “Ketamine can play an important role in the treatment of anxiety disorders,” according to Prakash Masand, MD, co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Centers of Psychiatric Excellence (COPE).

Loss of Connection

Ketamine can improve your general mental health and allow you to make positive changes in your professional career, social life, and relationships. Researchers from Yale and the National Institute of Mental Health say Ketamine helps the neurotransmitter by balancing and connecting nerve cells in parts of the brain involved in emotion and mood. This clarity can expand the mind in a trance like state allowing free thoughts that do not contain influence from external channels such as stress and social pressure (paradigm). Allowing an individual to make a decision or view their current state as it truly should be.
