Ketamine has been in use since the Vietnam War era as an anesthetic and painkiller, but it wasn’t until the last 10 years that the drug truly found a role in mental health.
Early on, doctors recognized that patients who were given ketamine were less likely to develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). But because of its success in the operating room, as well as the onslaught of antidepressant medications, this avenue wasn’t pursued to any great extent.
In the early 2000s, medical researchers turned back to ketamine to study its effect on mental health and found that the drug had a significant and almost immediate impact, on treatment-resistant mental disorders.
Since this time, ketamine has increasingly gained acceptance as a viable and effective treatment for a host of mental health disorders. As a result, Dr. Henry Liang has heeded the call, providing medically guided, off-label use of the drug to relieve moderate to severe mental health issues.
If you meet the guidelines for ketamine infusion therapy at The Clinic at Klarity Life, you will receive an infusion each day for a total of eight to ten sessions. Dr. Henry Liang has extensive experience with ketamine and understands the use of individualized dosing protocols, giving you a subanesthetic dose that may induce a light dissociative state.
During this state, your brain creates new pathways that offer you relief from the symptoms of your addiction.
Many of Dr. Liang’s… patients experience relief from their symptoms within the first few treatments. In fact, the clinic’s rate of success is an impressive 85%.
The results typically last for one to two months or more, at which time you return for a single “booster” infusion to keep your symptoms at bay.
