MORE ON KETAMINE

Background

 

Ketamine is an anesthetic that was approved by the FDA in 1970 and quickly became one of the most widely used anesthetics in the world. It has the ability to anesthetize patients quickly and safely with few side effects. Ketamine does not depress patients’ circulatory systems or breathing. Ketamine is also commonly used as a painkiller, especially for severe injuries and in crisis situations. 

Benefits of Ketamine Infusion Therapy For Depression & Pain

For over 20 years, ketamine treatments have become an increasingly popular solution for difficult to treat conditions, including depression, suicidal thoughts, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), varying mood disorders, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS/RSD), and other pain conditions.

 

Over one-hundred clinical trials at leading medical institutions and universities have proven the efficacy of ketamine treatment for depression, anxiety disorder therapy, other mood disorders, and pain conditions. Most of these studies have singled out severe, treatment-resistant cases that have not responded to many other conventional treatment options and they still report a success rate of 70% or higher. 

Ketamine for suicide prevention has also shown tremendous promise. Yale, Stanford, and New York universities, USC, UCLA, Cleveland Clinic, The National Institute of Mental Health, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Mt. Sinai are just a few of the leading institutions that have conducted a research proving ketamine’s efficacy for the treatment of suicidality.

Celebrated for producing high-quality relief that addresses afflictions at the source, ketamine therapy has been called the biggest breakthrough treatment in 50 years.
