About Ketamine

The Biggest Breakthrough in Decades

About IV Ketamine Therapy

Used around the world for decades as an effective and safe anesthetic and pain reliever, ketamine is now paving the way for a new era of mental health treatment.

IV ketamine therapy has provided relief in up to 70% of patients. Ketamine is unique to other antidepressants or anesthetics in that it has little to no side effects and can bring on relief rapidly – sometimes within just hours of infusion.

Ketamine’s interaction with glutamate and NMDA receptors in the brain allows it to reset and restore nerve connections across the body. This means it may be an important key to treating depression, anxiety, and chronic pain.

How We Can Help You Find Relief

What to Expect From Us

At Ketamine Wellness Institute, IV ketamine therapy is part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

This new use of ketamine allows the brain to “restock” on nerve cells, creating new pathways and strengthening existing ones.

Studies show this has a positive effect on mood and thoughts. Compared to the 35% success rate of traditional antidepressants, IV ketamine therapy can bring relief in as many as 70% of cases.

Our experienced providers will create a tailored treatment plan for you, giving you the time and space needed to address your symptoms.

How Does it Work?

Ketamine's Effect on the Brain

Although research is still underway, we know that ketamine is an NMDA receptor antagonist and interacts with glutamate – a key neurotransmitter. As ketamine increases glutamate levels, the parts of the brain shut down due to pain or depression find themselves reawakened. This can lead to neuroplasticity – new neural growth, essentially “rewiring” parts of the brain that play a crucial role in mental health and pain.

Ketamine has been used as an anesthetic for decades due to its powerful anti-inflammatory effect. Studies have shown to impact the amygdala, the part of the brain responsible for fear and emotion. Because of this, the amygdala is a vital component of how our brains deal with anxiety and depression.
