PTSD and Ketamine Treatments
How it works and are you a candidate for this highly effective safe and controlled treatment therapy.
A circuit in the brain involved with resilience as well as resistance to stress can be activated by ketamine. Research has indicated that ketamine can block NMDA-glutamate receptors in the brain.
Glutamate is a primary neurotransmitter and has a big effect on many regions of the nervous system. Overactivation of this particular neurotransmitter can cause depressive symptoms.
When ketamine blocks this neurotransmitter, it helps ease depression by recovering the balance in the glutamate neurotransmission pathway. Ketamine may also work by stimulating the regrowth of specific neurological connections.
