What is Ketamine Infusion Therapy

Ketamine infusion therapy is a state-of-the-art and cutting-edge treatment for depression, PTSD, anxiety, O.C.D other mental health disorders as well as treatment for pain. A reduced number of synapses along with dendritic degeneration are a result of long-term stress, depression, and trauma. Ketamine infusion therapy provides long repair to those connections.

Ketamine is an FDA-approved anesthesia drug used daily in hospitals and emergency rooms across the country. It is recognized as one of the most widely used medicines in the world for sedation as stated by The World Health Organization (WHO).

Through extensive off-label research and testing, ketamine has been found to have significant neuro-regenerative properties that profoundly treat and improve both physical and psychological struggles.

How does Ketamine work?

Although ketamine has been used to treat Mood disorders and chronic pain, researchers are still investigating why it works so well for so many conditions. What we do know is that ketamine increases the neuroplasticity of the brain, helping it to relearn and re-develop pathways through growth and improved synaptic communication.

Ketamine’s Mechanism of Action:

  • Receptor-level glutamate modulator: Glutamate is the primary excitatory neurotransmitter in mammalian brains, serving in about 60% of synapses Ketamine normalizes glutamate levels, increasing glutamate activity where it is depressed and decreasing activity where it is in excess
  • Network-level optimization: With depression, brain activity may become habitual and constrained within narrow limits Ketamine normalizes brain connectivity, stimulates synaptogenesis, and temporarily induces levels of brain plasticity that approach levels seen in early development critical period, enhancing biological support for changes in belief and behavior,
  • Anti-inflammatory: Pro-inflammatory cytokines can cause symptoms of depression, and ketamine is a powerful anti-inflammatory
  • Increased diversity of brain signals: The powerful psychedelic experiences that accompany entropic brain states may foster transformative subjective experiences that disrupt habits of thought and belief at the level of experience as well
  • Disrupts habitual cognitive activity

  • You may NOT drive a car, operate hazardous equipment, or engage in hazardous activities for at least 8 hours after each treatment as reflexes may be slow or impaired. Another adult will need to drive you home and must be present prior to your discharge.
  • You must refrain from alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to and following ketamine administration. You must refrain from illegal substances before and after your ketamine infusion treatment.
  • You must tell the clinic about all medications you are taking, especially narcotic pain relievers, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and muscle relaxers. * These increase the risk of adverse reactions during your infusion.

We recommend:

Noise-canceling headphones (we have some available for use if you don’t have your own)

At least 1 hour of “No Ads” music to help integrate a positive psychedelic experience; soft, uplifting, meditative, flowing, no intelligible words.

Eyeshades support to help focus on inner experience without distraction from distorted vision (We can provide these)

Most patients like to bring their own blanket or pillow, however, we can provide some for you.
