Ketamine Increases Resilience TO STRESS AND DEPRESSION

Did you know that stress can induce structural changes to your brain? Ketamine counterbalances these changes by promoting synaptic growth in affected areas of depressed brain, such as the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus, both of which regulate behavior, mood, personality development and memory.

Ketamine effectively forms a blockade of NDMA receptors and "increases the number and function of synapses" (Yale School of Medicine). The healing is shockingly rapid. "Ketamine-medicated synaptic plasticity changes appear to occur within a matter of hours after ketamine administration" (Mt. Sinai Hospital). As Ketamine reverses the structural changes of stress in the prefrontal cortex, it results in the individual's increased ability to have more cognitive control of emotions that enables a decrease in depressive symptoms. (Harvard Medical School).


    Ketamine has been shown to increase glutamate in the brain. This increase helps neurons communicate more effectively, which is proven to positively effect mood, thought patterns and cognition.


All approved antidepressant medications, including SSRI's, for depression and other mood disorders focus on targeting one mechanism, either serotonin norepinephrine or dopamine. Ketamine treats mental health symptoms by targeting Glutamate, the brain’s most common excitatory chemical messenger. Regulating the brain’s ability to process cognitive thoughts, emotions, and neuroplasticity, glutamate promotes and strengthens synaptic connections. It also plays a key role in how an individual learns, remembers, and responds to experiences. Mounting evidence suggests ketamine administration produces a surge in glutamate neurotransmission in the brain, that is likely associated with the antidepressant effects" Yale School of Medicine.

Dr. John Krystal, chief psychiatrist at Yale Medicine and a leading ketamine researcher, said ketamine is the “anti-medication” medication. He explains that “with most medications, like valium, the anti-anxiety effect you get only lasts when it is in your system. When the valium goes away, you can get rebound anxiety. When you take ketamine, it triggers reactions in your cortex that enable brain connections to regrow. It’s the reaction to ketamine, not the presence of ketamine in the body that constitutes the effect.”

  • Ketamine: An Effective & Fast Alternative

    Out of the estimated 16.1 million adults in America struggling with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), 66% are not helped by their first antidepressant treatment and 33% remain depressed as they don’t respond to any treatment. Ketamine provides fast relief and hope to those who can't find it elsewhere. Clients report feeling better as soon as 24 hours, opposed to the 6-12 weeks it might take for traditional medication.
