What Is Ketamine Treatment?
Discover the power of Ketamine Treatment
Ketamine has been FDA since the 1970s as a general anesthetic. Ketamine physically remaps and restructures the neural pathways in the brain causing neuroplasticity or new neuron connections in the brain, and it turns on receptors in the brain which creates dopamine.

Ketamine can be administered in a number of ways including intravenous infusion (IV), intramuscular injection (IM), intranasally, orally, and sublingually (as a dissolving troche or lozenge). Each route varies in the onset of action (time), bioavailability (absorption), and clearing time and also varies for each person. Although a response is generally predictable based on past administration, it is possible that a client may experience different physiological, psychological, and emotional effects with the same dose.
We firmly believe that multiple Ketamine sessions are needed in order to facilitate the cumulative anti-depressant or other mood-altering effects of the medication. This is necessary to assess how a client reacts to the medicine, to allow the new neural pathways to form, and to reorganize synaptic connections.

Ketamine Therapy is a practical treatment alternative for assisting in psychological healing and mental health issues, as well as chronic pain symptoms, and may be particularly effective for individuals who have come to be resistant to narcotics and various other pain-relieving treatment methods.
The science is based on neuroplasticity; the ability of the brain to form new connections and pathways and change how its circuits are wired. When we learn something new, we create new connections between the neurons in our brain. We also rewire our brain to adapt to new situations. This happens on a daily basis, but it’s also something that we can encourage and stimulate, which is why you are looking at Ketamine as a viable treatment option.
Research shows Ketamine increases expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which is the brain’s own repair inducer. This protein promotes the survival of neurons by playing a role in the growth, maturation (differentiation), and maintenance of these cells. Not only does Ketamine increase BDNF, but it also increases the number of receptors that BDNF binds to. With time, there is more repair factor and more receptors available to be activated by the repair factor.
The outcome is that over a period of weeks, neuroplasticity and repair occur in the brain. Ketamine also binds to NMDA receptors creating a glutamate surge and releasing growth factors. This allows your brain to make new synaptic connections. When paired with new healthy habits it paves the way for healthier thought patterns while increasing your resilience to chronic stress and lasting effectiveness.

How Does Ketamine Treatment Help With Mood Disorders?
What distinguishes Ketamine in comparison to various other antidepressants is how it functions to have an effect on the human brain. Antidepressants generally concentrate on boosting chemicals in the brain like serotonin as well as dopamine.
Using Ketamine for clinical depression, nevertheless, can in fact assist in repairing neuron synapses that commonly do not operate correctly in the brains of depressed individuals. Ketamine prompts a reaction in the brain, and it’s the adjustment to that provocation–the regrowth of synaptic networks–that is accountable for the quick progress in the mood it produces.
How Does Ketamine Treatment Help With Chronic Pain?
Ketamine therapy is a practical treatment alternative for dealing with chronic pain symptoms, and may be particularly efficient for individuals who have come to be resistant to narcotics and various other pain-relieving treatment methods.
Ketamine treatment delivers encouraging results for pain clients and may be a worthwhile alternative to most conventional treatments for CRPS. Ketamine functions by means of resetting the central nervous system’s sensitization to pain, thereby providing relief.
Unlike opiates that make clients more hypersensitive to pain in time, Ketamine serves to help quiet the brain during the course of treatment and brings back regular handling of pain in the brain to supply long-lasting pain reduction.
Our Bonita Springs team is compassionate above all else, and eager to meet with you to discuss Ketamine treatment options.
With Ketamine therapy, there is hope, and there is help—
