Ketamine directly targets your brain, where it primarily works as an NMDA receptor antagonist meaning it temporarily blocks glutamate receptors. Glutamate transmits pain signals and regulates psychological conditions like depression and anxiety.
When these and other receptors are temporarily blocked, a cascade of chemical reactions occurs that relieves pain and improves mental health conditions. Ketamine changes the way your central nervous system processes signals from pain or trauma and can lead to a “mental reset”.
While the research indicates rapid improvement in mental health conditions, it is unknown the full extent of how many neurotransmitters are affected by ketamine. An initial boost in glutamate levels may be why ketamine produces quick results, and for most of our clients, depression symptoms improve within a few hours or during their first few ketamine treatments. By comparison, antidepressants take weeks to months to work, if they work at all.
Long-lasting results are possible with the holistic approach we take and the specialized ketamine infusions we provide. Ketamine infusions give an experience unlike any other form of therapy, psychedelic medicine, or ketamine route of administration. This unique experience allows you to disrupt negative patterns, let go of trauma, and see your world from a new point of view. Ketamine regrows neural pathways in your brain so you can navigate the world with hope, and more clearly than you ever thought possible.
These stronger connections in your brain help stave off returning symptoms as you train your brain to be more resilient. The combination of these neural changes, combined with the comprehensive approach we provide allows you the agency to heal yourself from within.
that regulate psychological conditions. Ketamine causes a cascade of effects in the brain that can quickly disrupt established patterns in the nervous system leading to quick relief of pain and depression.
Ketamine changes the way your central nervous system processes signals and stimulates the growth of neural pathways in ways that no other medication can. It helps the brain repair damaged neurons and creates new and stronger neural connections leading to more adaptability in the brain.
The brain uses these new neural pathways, leading to more variety of thought, better emotional regulation, and strengthens against recurring symptoms. These changes allow you to leave negative thoughts and trauma behind, develop new habits, and find the strength to send you forward into a brighter future.
Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic medication developed in 1962 and has been widely used in a variety of settings from the battlefields of Vietnam to the modern operating room to safely sedate children.
Ketamine has been used to induce and maintain general anesthesia for more than 50 years and is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. Ketamine has been documented over a variety of settings to have a remarkably safe track record with few side effects.
Over the past two decades, researchers have consistently found that low doses of ketamine, administered intravenously, produce a rapid anti-depressant effect. It has been considered one of the biggest breakthroughs for treatment-resistant depression of the last half century.
