Ketamine infusion therapy is highly effective for a number of ailments. Ketamine acts as an inhibitor of the NMDA receptor (a pain receptor in the spinal cord) to interfere with pain transmission throughout the body. It also inhibits the production of the neurotransmitter nitric oxide, which is involved in the perception of pain. Ketamine infusion is used to treat symptoms of CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome), PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Fatigue, Insomnia, Drug Addiction, etc.
IV infusion of Ketamine is administered and carefully monitored by medical professionals. Similar to the IV Vitamin infusions, it carries a low risk of adverse side effects. This is because when administered through IV, the amount of Ketamine that enters your body is precisely controlled in low doses. This process allows for 100 percent absorption into the bloodstream because it bypasses other organs, such as the stomach or liver, preventing the breakdown of ketamine into less effective metabolites. When taken orally or by other means besides IV, the medication becomes more difficult to control and monitor.
With IV Ketamine infusions, you can be exact and precise with the quantity and rate at which it is absorbed by the body. Patients vary in the number of treatments needed for noticeable results.
Ketamine infusion therapy is for individuals who suffer daily with chronic pain when their current pain management plan is not working. Ketamine infusion is an excellent treatment for both chronic pain, and for medication resistant mental health disorders.
Many patients are able to stop taking daily medications and manage with an infusion maintenance plan allowing them to function normally and experience a better quality of life.
Chronic pain affects more than 50 million adults in the United States and of that, 20 million suffer from chronic pain that interferes with their daily activities according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The psychological impact of suffering can be heartbreaking for both the patient and their loved ones.
