How Does Ketamine Work?
When Ketamine is used as a therapeutic treatment, it triggers glutamate production. Glutamate is responsible for many important brain functions, including creating neural connections and pathways. By increasing glutamate, Ketamine therapy allows the mind to become more adaptable. Throughout Ketamine treatments, the mind can virtually heal and rewire itself.
Because the psychological causes of mental illness can be targeted and the mind becomes more open to healing trauma, this effect can carry on throughout the body. Ketamine studies show that- as the brain begins to heal, the body can more easily follow those dealing with symptoms of bodily pains or chronic pain.
