How Does Ketamine Work?

Researchers aren’t exactly sure the mechanism of how Ketamine infusions work, however it has been shown to help regenerate synaptic connections between brain cells that are damaged by stress, after even a single administration.  It is believed that at lower doses, Ketamine acts as a neurotransmitter antagonist ( GluN2B ) in the brain. This area of the brain is the focus of treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD and chronic pain conditions.  Up to 70 % of patients treated with Ketamine for conditions ranging from Major Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, and chronic pain conditions show immediate improvement.  The immediate relief is in stark contrast to the slower methods of antidepressants medications and talk-therapy.  Ketamine is commonly used in the emergency room and operating rooms for anesthesia.  Read more on how you can take the first steps towards health and wellness.
