What is Ketamine?
Ketamine is a medicine traditionally used as an anesthesia. It also happens to stimulate neuron growth and is a strong anti-inflammatory. Furthermore, when used in small doses monitored by a physician, it has been proven to help treat patients suffering from severe depression.
Low Dose Ketamine (LDK) has also been proven to help patients suffering from Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Chronic Migraines as well as PTSD. Ketamine when used in small doses, is extremely unlikely to be addictive, unlike many opioids and other prescribed medications.
Ketamine has been shown to deliver relief for a variety of symptoms.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Ketamine Infusions for Depression:

- Treatment is indicated for patients that have tried and failed two oral anti depressant medications.
- Oral antidepressants tend to take many weeks to start working. Ketamine tends to have an effect much sooner than oral medications.
- This therapy is shown to help patients with Severe or Chronic Depression, Bi-Polar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post-Partum Depression (PPD) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Ketamine Infusions for Chronic Pain:
- Can help patients with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Chronic Migraines and Neuropathic Pain.

- Ketamine is unlikely to be addictive when given in small doses. Opioids have been shown to be highly dependent.
