Ketamine Assisted Therapy
To Help With
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Ketamine facilitates an experiential shift in perspective that can allow a person to view traumatic experiences objectively and open awareness to create a deeper connection with the self as well as “that which is greater than the self”. In addition to stimulating brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and providing a “reboot” to the brain, our goal is to facilitate an experience that, combined with psychotherapy, helps one find meaning in the traumatic experience and find a way to revisit and work through a traumatic event.
Treatment Resistant Depression, PTSD, severe anxiety, and drug and alcohol addiction have all been theorized, up until recently, to simply be due to chemical imbalances in the brain. But it’s much more complicated than that. Newer research is looking at the electrical signaling of the brain that impacts neurotransmitter concentrations and the role of inflammation on the brain. Ketamine’s ability to “re-boot” the brain and stimulate the production of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is believed to impact neuroplasticity. This neuroplasticity is what can allow a person to break a repetitive cycle long enough to have a chance to do the impactful work that can put a person on a new path to living. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNsIiq-5354
