The Ketamine Healing Clinic in Los Angeles, is taking the lead by offering its patients a highly effective Ketamine therapy for their post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and Depression. The clinic is run by certified Anesthesiologist and MD, Dr. David Mahjoubi, who has been voted as Top Doctor by Los Angeles magazine for the last two years.
Innovative Infusion Protocol
The clinic is now bringing hope to many PTSD sufferers, thanks to its innovative Ketamine infusion protocol, which is easily administered in-office. Ketamine has a lot of similar features to opioids, however, it is not an opiate drug. It belongs to a category of drugs known as dissociative anesthetics. Mahjoubi has remarked that this state-of-the-art treatment has an incredible success rate of over 90%. The protocol comprises giving patients an initial dose which is lower than usual. This is to safeguard against any likelihood of a dysphoric reaction (a feeling of anxiety, dissatisfaction and restlessness), which people experiencing PTSD-related symptoms are more likely to have.
Once there is a positive response from the patient, follow up infusions could have increased levels of Ketamine. Once the patient has completed their personalized infusion series, they will be given a prescription for a Ketamine nasal spray, which they can use when required at home or work. Mahjoubi stated that: “In my clinic, I see patients plagued with fear, anxiety and anger related to trauma from their past. It brings me great satisfaction to be able to offer them a safe and effective solution that will lead them to a place of peace again”. And with such a high success rate, this new method of treatment is very promising indeed. It will also bring countless other positive benefits, for example, for the patient’s family, and other loved ones.
The Low Down on Ketamine
For in excess of 50 years, Ketamine has been used as an anesthetic, as well as for relief of chronic pain and mood disorders. However, conventional pharmaceuticals for these conditions also generate a substantial list of unwelcome side effects. Conversely, the protocol employed by the Ketamine Healing Clinic, is relatively free of unpleasant side effects. Moreover, Mahjoubi works in conjunction with top level therapists who specialize in PTSD, and this has empowered him to devise a multi-modal approach.
