Ketamine Infusion Therapy
What is Ketamine Infusion Therapy?
Ketamine infusion therapy involves the administration of the drug ketamine, widely used as anesthesia during surgeries, in a single infusion or a series of infusions for the management of psychiatric disorders.
What is the purpose of Ketamine Infusion Therapy?
Research labs showed that the ketamine triggers glutamate production, which, in a complex, cascading series of events, prompts the brain to form new neural connections. This makes the brain more adaptable and able to create new pathways, and gives patients the opportunity to develop more positive thoughts and behaviors.
