A Remarkable Breakthrough for the Treatment of Depression and Pain, Part 1
March 9, 2017
The ketamine story. Dr. Steven Mandel is a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist and President and Founder of the Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles (www.ketamineclinics.com). Ketamine is a short-acting anesthetic that’s administered intravenously and has a safe track record, even in children and frail elderly patients. It produces a “dissociative state.” Experience with returning military personnel suffering PTSD suggested its benefits in treating depression. Dr. Mandel has administered thousands of treatments with high degrees of success in depression not responsive to psychotherapy or ordinary medications—even in bipolar disorder and suicidality. It is also helpful for pain syndromes like trigeminal neuralgia, migraines, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. It may help reinforce recovery in substance abusers and alcoholics. Ketamine is also being researched for MS. How does it work? What’s it like to receive a treatment? How soon will you feel the effects? How long do they last? How many treatments do patients usually receive? Is it safe and are there any side effects? Is mainstream medicine beginning to embrace it? Click HERE for part 2.
