Ketamine for PTSD
One of the major benefits of Ketamine infusions for PTSD treatment is its ability to sometimes bring relief the PTSD symptoms within minutes or hours, rather than the weeks or months a typical medication may take.
Research into Ketamine infusions for treating PTSD is still ongoing, but it is generally believe the Ketamine helps foster connections between synapses and restore damage connections between nerves, essentially rewiring the brain.
PTSD survivors will likely always be able to recall their traumatizing events. However, with effective treatment patients can develop skills to care for themselves and are no longer repeatedly pushed out of control by their thoughts. Patients no longer carry around the pain and fear that they want suffered, and they can effectively engage in living and enjoying life. If you continue to experience significant problems in your ability to function in normal life for more than a month after the initial event, you may have post traumatic stress disorder and should consider treatment.
