Ketamine infusions have proven to assist with pain relief, but did you know ketamine can be used for a range of mental health conditions as well? The benefits of ketamine don’t end there though. As ketamine binds to specific receptors, it has a positive impact on mental health. Ketamine provides what can be described as a ‘reset’ button. For psychiatry, it was a landmark discovery of the 1960’s. In addition to conditions such as major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), ketamine has been used as a treatment for bipolar depression (and acutely for mania).
