Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD is triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it.
The effects of PTSD can include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as thoughts that are uncontrollable about the event.
Symptoms are generally grouped into four types: intrusive memories, avoidance, negative changes in thinking and mood, and changes in physical and emotional reactions.
Your PTSD experience may include:
Recurrent, unwanted distressing memories of the traumatic event
Avoiding places, activities or people that remind you of the traumatic event
Difficulty experiencing positive emotions
Overwhelming guilt or shame
Studies have shown that Ketamine is an effective treatment for PTSD.
Studies show that ketamine and integration is more effective than ketamine alone, needing fewer overall treatments with longer lasting results and a lower overall cost. (1)
