What Is Ketamine?
Ketamine is a very effective medication that is used in low doses as an anesthetic for pain relief from a variety 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. It is used to treat symptoms of CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome), PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Fatigue, Insomnia, etc.
What Can I Expect?
IV infusion of Ketamine is effective and carefully monitored by medical professionals. Similar to the IV Vitamin infusions, caries 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% absorption into the blood stream 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. Each infusion can last from 1-4 hours.
