Ketamine, traditionally used in anesthesia, has been found to rapidly decrease symptoms of depression and anxiety compared to traditional antidepressant medications.
How does Ketamine work? Ketamine works on a different part of the brain than traditional antidepressants. It works on the glutamate system, more specifically, by binding to the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors and blocking glutamate from binding. Glutamate is the number one messenger, excitatory neurotransmitter, in the brain and spinal cord.
Glutamate is responsible for normal brain function and nerve cell communication. With chronic stress, bad nutrition and even lack of sleep, glutamate levels tend to decrease. Historically, old studies showed that depression and anxiety were strictly caused by imbalances of serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine messengers.
In more recent studies, it is now known to start at an earlier pathway, with the imbalance of the glutaminergic system. When Ketamine is introduced into the central nervous system via intravenous infusions, it binds onto the NMDA receptor, causing an increase of circulating glutamate.
The increase in glutamate creates increases in other brain nutrients allowing the nerves and communication between those nerves to heal and grow. Glutamate levels in the front of the brain, known as the prefrontal cortex, is responsible for mood, personality, and motivation.
The glutamate neurotransmitter is also responsible for the body’s levels of serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. By increasing glutamate levels, ketamine infusion therapy assists in activating synaptic neurons and improving the neuroconnection and ultimately, neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity and neurogenesis describes the terms for creating new nerve pathways.
Most traditional treatments for depression involve oral antidepressant medications, trying to increase levels of serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine neurotransmitters.
Ketamine directly increases glutamate levels, thus triggering the cascade of rebalanced serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine neurotransmitters, giving patients the rapid relief of depressive symptoms. Furthermore, in those with anxiety, ketamine allows the brain to create new pathways and heal old injuries, which heals the subconscious triggers, lowering and even completely alleviating their anxiety.
Ketamine Clinic South Florida saya “it’s a bit like repairing the road, imagine someone’s neural pathways in the brain is like a city’s streets. Roads get damaged with daily use and workers do regular maintenance to keep the traffic flowing. If there are not enough workers, and maintenance falls behind, roads remain damaged, traffic slows, cars get blocked, and the city/brain stops functioning in a healthy way. Ketamine is like getting more workers on the job to get the city moving again.”

The nurses were very professional and attentive. Just finished the full treatment of 6 infusions and it has reduced the anxiety tremendously. Am very happy with the result.
