Man in Distress

The Challenge

We are in the midst of a mental health pandemic and few new treatment options have emerged in several decades.

We continue to suffer from growing numbers of suicides, drug and alcohol abuse. According to the CDC, depression is the leading cause of disability in the US among people aged 15-44 and anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the US, affecting 40 million adults.

Current solutions (antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications) have significant side effects including emotional numbness, loss of sexual appetite, weight gain, drowsiness, addictive and difficult to get off of, insomnia, suicidal ideation, migraines.

What are Psychedelic Medicines?

The term psychedelic was derived from two Greek words that together mean “mind-manifesting.”

Psychedelic substances, originally derived from natural plants, have been used for centuries by various cultures in spiritual ceremonies to promote healing and well-being.

When used in a controlled and safe environment with proper support, they can be powerful tools to help treat many mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, alcoholism, opioid addictions, eating disorders, and many other ailments of the spirit.

All psychedelic medicines, if safely used with the right supervision, dosage, and patient mindset, can occasion an ego-dissolving transcendent experience. This allows the patient to compassionately examine their greatest traumas, fears, addictions, and other spiritual ailments, and ultimately, overcome them.

Ketamine

A Safe and Effective Treatment

Petri dish

Ketamine is a compound that was discovered in 1962 and found to be an extremely safe and short acting dissociative anesthetic and analgesic (pain reliever). It is FDA-approved for many indications including its use among children in emergency and operating rooms.

For psychedelic journeys or mood disorder treatments, sub-anesthetic doses of Ketamine that are a fraction of what would be administered to an infant during a surgical procedure are given.

When administered at these very small doses, Ketamine allows the patient to experience different planes of consciousness in a similar manner to other classical psychedelic medicines. Often, it provides for “ego dissolution” which is viewed by many psychiatrists and other mental health practitioners, as the doorway to healing. FDA-approved for many indications including its use among children in emergency and operating rooms.

How Effective is Ketamine?

Depression Treatment Chart
“With most medications, like valium, the anti-anxiety effect you get only lasts when it is in your system. When the valium goes away, you can get rebound anxiety. When you take Ketamine, it triggers reactions in your cortex that enable brain connections to regrow. It’s the reaction to Ketamine, not the presence of Ketamine in the body that constitutes the effect."
