This treatment for Depression, Suicidal Thoughts, Bipolar Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Pain has been a game changer for many sufferers. 60-70 % patients with treatment resistant Depression respond to Ketamine
Recent studies show a single dose of Ketamine can reduce suicidal thoughts. It is not yet FDA approved and therefore not covered by insurance. For almost 20 years, researchers have demonstrated that tiny doses of ketamine can rapidly relieve depression symptoms when delivered via slow intravenous infusion. The first scholarly paper describing this discovery was published by Yale in 2000 and now other major institutions such as National Institutes of Health, Mount Sinai Medical School, Oxford University, and Johns Hopkins have similar findings.
2 out of 3 patients with treatment resistant depression respond to Ketamine and 3 out of 4 will no longer have suicidal ideations.
There are many ways to take Ketamine. We think the safest route is by Infusion because we can control the rate that the Ketamine goes into your system so you are always comfortable.
You are awake during the entire treatment. Treatments last 40 minutes on average. We follow the protocol developed by the National Institutes of Mental Health that recommends six treatments over two or three weeks to start. Continued treatments are then personalized.
