WHAT IS KETAMINE?
Ketamine is an anesthetic made in the 1960s and approved by the FDA in 1970. It is rapidly becoming the most widely used anesthetic globally. It is used as a painkiller for severe acute or chronic pain and works quickly. For decades, ketamine has been safely used in hospitals, clinics, and medical offices by experienced professionals. Giving ketamine intravenously is the only method of treatment that has been clinically proven to be effective.
Through years of extensive research, ketamine has been identified as having beneficial effects on patients with:
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Chronic regional pain syndrome
Many studies show that up to 85% of people feel better after only one treatment. Some of these studies have been done by well-known and influential schools like Yale University, The Mayo Clinic, Mt. Sinai Medical School, The National Institute of Mental Health, and Massachusetts General Hospital.
Ketamine Therapy for Depression and Other Mental Health Conditions
When used in a healing setting to treat depression, OCD, postpartum depression, and anxiety, ketamine can help patients overcome past trauma. The drug enables patients to process emotional wounds while feeling a sense of complete safety. Ketamine restores balance to the body and mind, resetting the patient to a natural state of healing.
Ketamine helps the brain. It is a medicine that makes it easier to think and feel better. Ketamine increases the production of BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factors). Ketamine also produces more NMDA receptors (and BDNF) by binding with them. This process is good for you because it helps your brain form new connections and helps you to feel better over time.
Ketamine can help you get back to the quality of living you used to enjoy. We know that chronic pain and mental distress can rob our patients of simple pleasures like walking the dog or checking the mail. We want to help you return to a life of balance and joy.
What to expect during a Ketamine treatment.
Many adults feel powerless to depression and anxiety. These all-consuming feelings can emanate from childhood trauma or as a result of adult suffering and distress. Regardless, these same people often wade through a private battle with PTSD and/ or chronic pain. If you’ve tried antidepressants with little to no improvement, suffer from PTSD, bipolar disorder, or live in a constant state of pain, perhaps Ketamine treatment at Vessel Longevity is for you.
Each Ketamine IV infusion takes place in our private and comfortable Ketamine treatment room. During treatment, a medical staff member is always on-site to check in and make sure that you are comfortable and at ease.
While on the drip, patients are known to experience supreme relaxation and “zone out” — enjoying the peaceful and tranquil environment and experience. Patients have compared the treatment to a “spiritual journey” where they feel warm, safe, and confident.
Getting the Most Out of Ketamine Treatments
To get the most out of your ketamine treatments, it is essential to stick with them. You may begin to feel a great deal of relief after one or two treatments. Don't stop there! Patients who don't return after only a few treatments often discover that their symptoms return. Patients who finish their prescribed treatments typically enjoy long-term freedom from symptoms.
We will explain everything clearly and simply to you. We will answer all of your questions and let you know what you can expect from your Ketamine treatments.
Ketamine is also an excellent pain reliever.
