In high doses, ketamine is used as an anesthetic during surgical procedures. However, in lower doses, ketamine provides a variety of health and wellness benefits.
YOURx Health offers it when other treatments haven’t worked to relieve mental health struggles or chronic pain. Your provider offers ketamine IV infusions.
The exact way ketamine therapy works to relieve unpleasant symptoms isn’t entirely clear. It may bind to specific receptors in your brain, increasing neurotransmitters and neuron pathways. This, in turn, affects your cognition, thought patterns, and mood.
Ketamine therapy may also reduce inflammation linked with some mood disorders.
- Ongoing pain
- Substance abuse disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- End-of-life distress
You may feel better immediately after ketamine infusions, with more improvements in how you feel physically and mentally over time. Because ketamine may have addictive properties for some people, your specialist closely monitors you during your treatment.
They may recommend periodic ketamine infusions spaced apart over time to give you long-lasting results. The YOURx Health team makes changes to ketamine treatment plans if needed.
