What is Ketamine?
Ketamine is a medication that has been used for many years as an anesthetic during surgical procedures. However, recent research has shed light on its remarkable potential as a treatment for various mental health conditions, including PTSD. Ketamine is classified as a dissociative anesthetic, meaning it can induce a sense of detachment from reality. This unique property of ketamine allows it to target specific areas of the brain and produce therapeutic effects.
Ketamine Infusions vs. Troches
At Edelica Health, we are committed to providing the highest standard of care and safety for our patients. As such, we exclusively offer ketamine infusions as the preferred method of administration for ketamine treatment. There are key differences between ketamine infusions and troches, and we want to highlight the advantages and benefits of ketamine infusions while addressing any misconceptions or concerns about troches.
Ketamine infusions are administered intravenously, allowing for precise control over dosage and delivery. This method ensures rapid and efficient absorption into the bloodstream, resulting in consistent and predictable effects. With infusion administration, our medical professionals can carefully titrate the dosage to achieve optimal therapeutic results. This enhanced precision and predictable effects are significant advantages of ketamine infusions at Edelica Health.
Compared to troches, ketamine infusions offer several benefits. Firstly, the intravenous route allows for faster onset of ketamine’s therapeutic effects, making it particularly beneficial for patients experiencing acute distress or requiring urgent symptom management. Secondly, ketamine infusions provide reliable and consistent experiences for patients, as the dosage is carefully controlled throughout the treatment process. This ensures that each patient receives the appropriate amount of medication tailored to their specific needs.
We acknowledge that troches have been considered or encountered by some individuals as a form of ketamine treatment. However, Edelica Health does not offer troche administration due to several reasons. Troche administration can lead to inconsistent treatment outcomes due to variations in absorption and metabolism, making it difficult to reliably achieve the desired therapeutic effects. Furthermore, the oral route carries additional risks, such as gastrointestinal side effects or complications associated with improper administration. Our decision to solely provide ketamine infusions at Edelica Health is rooted in our commitment to patient safety.
At Edelica Health, we have seen firsthand the remarkable benefits of ketamine infusions. Our experienced medical team, along with the precision and control offered by infusion administration, contribute to the exceptional effectiveness and reliability of our ketamine treatments. By exclusively offering ketamine infusions, we ensure that our patients receive the highest quality care and experience the optimal therapeutic outcomes associated with this gold-standard approach.
It is important to consult with a medical professional to discuss the most suitable treatment options based on individual needs and circumstances.
How Does Ketamine Help Treat PTSD?
Ketamine therapy offers a novel approach to managing the symptoms of PTSD. It works by modulating certain receptors in the brain, such as the NMDA receptors, which are involved in the regulation of mood and emotions. By targeting these receptors, ketamine can help restore the balance of neurotransmitters, such as glutamate, and promote neural connections that may have been disrupted by traumatic experiences.
Research studies have demonstrated that ketamine treatment can rapidly reduce symptoms of PTSD, including intrusive thoughts, nightmares, anxiety, and depression. Unlike traditional antidepressants, which can take weeks or even months to show effects, ketamine therapy often produces noticeable improvements after just a few sessions.
What is it Like During a Ketamine Treatment?
When you visit Edelica Health for ketamine therapy, you can expect a safe and comfortable environment. Our experienced medical professionals will guide you throughout the treatment process, ensuring your well-being and addressing any concerns you may have.
During a ketamine treatment session, you will be administered a carefully controlled dose of ketamine through a non-invasive method, such as intravenous infusion or nasal spray. The duration of each session may vary, typically lasting around 45 minutes to an hour. While the treatment is underway, you will be closely monitored by our compassionate staff to ensure your safety and optimize the therapeutic outcomes.
It’s important to note that ketamine therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach. At Edelica Health, we personalize each treatment plan to cater to your specific needs and condition. Our dedicated team will work closely with you to determine the most effective dosage and treatment frequency for achieving the best results.
The Science of Ketamine
Rat neuron before Ketamine
The pictures show a rat neuron. Above, before ketamine treatment, you see few dendritic spines – the connectors that nerve cells use to talk with other neurons. In depression, areas of the brain have been shown to lose these branches and connections. These physical changes cause nerves to lose the ability to communicate with each other and may be responsible for symptoms of depression.
Rat neuron after Ketamine
The neuron above shows new dendritic formations, or new neural growth, within just 2 hours of receiving ketamine. Ketamine’s effect on the human brain – how it interacts with the medial prefrontal cortex and hippocampus in regard to chronic pain, for instance – is open to debate. We know that ketamine has been shown to reduce some of the symptoms associated with mental disorders like anxiety and depression as well as chronic pain.
The Human Brain: Depressed VS. Not Depressed
After ketamine treatments, the depressed brain is almost identical to the non-depressed picture as new neural activity has awakened the depressed areas. The amygdala, the part of the brain that handles fear and emotion, may benefit from ketamine infusion therapy. That part of the brain is also vital to how we deal with mood disorders like anxiety and depression.
The Benefits of Ketamine Treatment for PTSD
Ketamine therapy offers a range of benefits for individuals struggling with PTSD. Here are some key advantages:
Rapid Relief: Unlike traditional treatments, ketamine therapy often produces quick and significant improvements in PTSD symptoms. This can provide much-needed relief for those who have been suffering for an extended period.
Enhanced Mood and Well-being: Ketamine has been shown to elevate mood and improve overall well-being. By alleviating the symptoms of PTSD, it allows individuals to regain control over their lives, experience greater joy, and enhance their overall quality of life.
Long-lasting Effects: Ketamine therapy has demonstrated sustained benefits for many patients, with the potential for long-term symptom relief. This means that even after completing a course of ketamine treatment, individuals may continue to experience the positive effects for an extended period.
Improved Functioning: PTSD can significantly impair daily functioning, making it challenging to perform everyday tasks and maintain relationships. Ketamine therapy can help improve cognitive function, concentration, and overall functioning, allowing individuals to regain control over their lives and engage in activities they once enjoyed.
Reduced Suicidal Ideation: Individuals with PTSD may experience intense emotional distress and, in some cases, suicidal thoughts. Studies have shown that ketamine treatment can rapidly reduce suicidal ideation and provide a renewed sense of hope and resilience.
Non-addictive: Unlike some medications used to manage PTSD symptoms, ketamine has a low risk of addiction and dependency. This makes it a safer and more sustainable option for long-term treatment.
At Edelica Health, we are committed to helping you or your loved one find relief from the burdens of PTSD through our comprehensive ketamine therapy program.
