Find Hope with Ketamine Wellness Institute
According to a study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, almost 10% of the world population will experience suicidal ideation at some point in their life.
To suffer from suicidal ideation is to have thoughts of self-harm or taking your own life. There are two kinds of suicidal ideation: passive and active. Passive suicidal ideation involves simply thinking of it, but active suicidal ideation is when a person intends to take their own life.
Ketamine Wellness Institute wants to help those struggling. If you or someone you know is suffering from suicidal ideation, know that help is available. Don’t hesitate to reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
The Science Behind IV Ketamine
Ketamine has been used worldwide for decades both as a safe anesthetic and rapid pain reliever. Research in the last two decades indicates that ketamine, administered safely via a series of infusions, may relieve the symptoms of depression or other mental health conditions within hours. This is compared to the weeks or months oral antidepressants may take before relief is felt.
Researchers are still looking to determine the exact method of action with IV ketamine infusions. One theory proposes that it stimulates the regrowth of synapses – effectively “rewiring” the brain.
Another promising avenue of research into its effects indicates that it acts on glutamate, an important neurotransmitter that affects how synapses change and learn. This is called neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain to change and learn. This could explain ketamine’s strong effect on mood and pain disorders.
