Ketamine increases neuroplasticity and allows for repair of systems damaged due to chronic stress
Ketamine works by repairing brain systems damaged by chronic stress, possibly by modulation of the glutamate neurotransmitter and increasing neuroplasticity (stimulating growth of the connections between brain cells). Ketamine disrupts negative and maladaptive brain networks, allowing new positive connections to form in their place. Some have described this as similar to rebooting a computer when it is no longer functioning properly.
Ketamine, one of the most widely used medications in the world, has traditionally been used for pain control and anesthesia. Research and recent studies indicate that low dose ketamine is highly effective in treating refractory depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), chronic pain and addiction. Even in cases of severe depression unresponsive to other medical treatment, ketamine infusions are effective for over ⅔ of patients. Unlike many other conventional therapies, people can have profound relief from their symptoms within hours of ketamine treatment.
