The history of Ketamine
During the 1960s and 1970s, Ketamine was first synthesized as an anesthetic drug. In the United States, it was used clinically on patients, specifically in pediatric care as a general anesthesia, and during the Vietnam War, it was used as a veterinary anesthetic on dogs and horses.
Since the mid-century and after the war, Ketamine research has expanded beyond its surgical use and is now an option for several mood disorders and chronic pain.
More than an anesthetic
Researchers at Yale University in the early 1990s discovered that, in smaller doses, Ketamine could be an effective drug for more than anesthetic purposes. Research found that Ketamine could be effective in treating mental and mood disorders, including:
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
And it could even be effective in treating chronic migraines and pain. Since then, Ketamine therapy has been growing in popularity as an alternative to other mood and pain medications and therapies.
How Ketamine heals
Ketamine targets a neurotransmitter called glutamate. Low levels of glutamate are found in the brains of those who suffer from mood disorders. Ketamine increases this glutamate receptor in the brain, which offers increased relief and healing in the patient. Contact us to learn more about how Ketamine therapy could work for you!
