What can Ketamine treat?
Ketamine can treat depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, Bipolar Disorder and chronic pain.
How does it work?
Ketamine alters multiple neuromodulators in the brain producing antidepressant, hypnotic and analgesic benefits. One important neurotransmitter affected is glutamate, which plays a large role in facilitating learning and memory. By altering glutamate, ketamine can block off learned thought patterns and behaviors while simultaneously creating a new pathway. This allows the mind to overcome triggers that send the mind into a spiraling thought process.
