KETAMINE IV INFUSION
Ketamine, at higher doses, is a medication that can be used as an anesthetic, often during surgical cases. In our practice, we use iv doses of Ketamine in a monitored setting to treat depressed mood caused by dysfunction in the central nervous system a condition when the nerves in the brain and spinal cord are more sensitive to any stimulus. Patients can suffer from this condition, giving them depressed mood when they normally would not have this mood. Ketamine works by blocking the NMDA receptor on neurons in the brain and spinal cord to effectively turn off that over stimulation similar to resetting your computer or cable modem
BIO MARKERS TESTING AND REPLENISHMENT
Analysis using a simple urine test canidentify 11 different biomarkers that can explain abnormalities of cellular processes in 4 categories related to mood: oxidative stress, neurotransmitter depletion, inflammation, and micronutrient deficiency. These areas can then be treated with customized Intravenous infusions in order to replenish the much-needed substrates for theseprocesses in the body to be improved.
BIOIDNETICAL HORMONE TESTING
As we age, certain hormones can get
depleted over time. For instance, lack of testosterone in males in their forties can lead to depressed mood, but treatment using hormone replacement therapy can often improve these symptoms and really make a difference, along with exercise and healthy eating. Simple blood tests can tell us when hormone replacement is needed.
