Ketamine Therapy and Vitamin Drips

Open now!

Vitamin Drips for Every Lifestyle…

With vitamin infusions your body receives nutrients directly into the bloodstream. This bypasses the digestive system which would otherwise lower the amount of vitamins your body can absorb. IV vitamin infusions allows your body to absorb 100% of what it needs before passing along the rest to your kidneys to be flushed out.

    About Ketamine

    Ketamine has been in use for decades in both humans and animals as an effective anesthetic, but the medical world began to see other benefits from the use of ketamine, such as a reduction in depression and anxiety. Researchers believe that ketamine achieves this by rewiring your brain, forming healthier neural pathways.

    For many years it was thought that low serotonin levels were the cause of depression so SSRI’s like Prozac were developed in order to treat the symptoms. Eventually it was discovered that the serotonin hypothesis didn’t fully explain depression.

    Growing research has shown that the neurotransmitters these drugs target (serotonin) account for less than 20% of the neurotransmitters in a person’s brain. Ketamine prompts the brain to form new neural connections making the brain more adaptable and create new pathways which gives the patients the opportunity to develop positive thoughts and behaviors.

    Glutamate is a major neurotransmitter and has a large effect on many regions of the nervous system. Over action of this transmitter can cause depressive symptoms. Ketamine blocks this transmitter and helps ease depression by restoring the balance in the glutamate neurotransmission pathway.

    For many patients with treatment-resistant depression for example, the benefits of ketamine therapy are numerous. Ketamine therapy for mental health disorders is typically fast-acting, effective and safe. The dose of ketamine required is much lower than when used for anesthetic purposes and you will experience relief from symptoms almost immediately.

    How does ketamine aid in PTSD?

    Ketamine is not just another selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). It is in a totally different class of medicine that works on the glutamatergic system via blockade of N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA) receptor. In addition to its dissociative properties, ketamine may have multiple ways of bringing about improvement of PTSD symptoms and potentially even providing deep healing.

    How does ketamine aid in Anxiety?

    Ketamine prompts the brain to form new neural connections making the brain more adaptable and create new pathways which gives patients the opportunity to develop positive thoughts and behaviors.
