Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
About 5.2 million adults have PTSD during a given year. When people hear “PTSD”, they generally think of veterans of the military. However, PTSD is a diagnosis, which relates to someone who may have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. According to the National Institute of Medicine, “PTSD develops after a terrifying ordeal that involved physical harm or the threat of physical harm. The person who develops PTSD may have been the one who was harmed, the harm may have happened to a loved one, or the person may have witnessed a harmful event that happened to loved ones or strangers.”
There has been a breadth of compelling research conducted on PTSD patients utilizing Ketamine, many of which have concluded that “Ketamine infusion was associated with significant and rapid reduction of PTSD symptom severity.”
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder has recently become a focus of our government and military, partly due to the recent documentaries, movies and publicized legal proceedings. PTSD deserves to be addressed much like any other medical physical ailment and the men and women who have served our country deserve to have relief.
Ketamine Wellness Centers uses low dose Ketamine infusions in conjunction with psychological therapy to allow the patient to become aware of the trauma and through therapy be able to learn techniques to cope with whatever trauma they may have experienced. Psychotherapy in combination with Ketamine therapy allows the patient the emotional ability to identify stressors which their life’s path has taught them to repress.
