Mental Health Challenges, Pain, and Ketamine
Kentuckiana Integrative Medicine is one the most experienced Ketamine treatment centers in Kentuckiana and the country. There is no other anti-suicidal and antidepressant therapy that is as fast, accessible, and effective as Ketamine Therapy. Many patients see improvement even after the first treatment. Six treatments within 2-3 weeks are required for best results and occasionally “booster” treatments.
Over eight years ago, we were the first to introduce Ketamine Therapy to the Kentuckiana community for mental health challenges with tremendous success such as:
- Treatment-Resistant Depression
- Postpartum Depression
- Reactive Depression – divorce or loss of a loved one
- Bipolar Disorder
- ADD Attention Deficit Disorder
- Severe Anxiety
- Suicidal Thinking
- CRPS Complex Regional Pain Syndrome [formerly RSD]
- Pain Issues [Fibromyalgia, Neuropathy, Migraines Multiple Sclerosis]
We mostly use IV Intravenous and IM Intramuscular Ketamine therapy. Experience the difference at Kentuckiana Integrative Medicine where your improvement is our most important mission.
Ketamine therapy can help patients with a variety of conditions
A Consultation is around $300 and the cost for seven treatments of Ketamine is about $2,500-$6000.
The higher costs listed are if other services are desired such as IV Vitamin therapy which is indicated when there is a history of severe fatigue, fibromyalgia, recurrent infections, etc. Nationally, Ketamine treatment alone is effective in 65-75% of patients within 1-2 weeks. Many patients experience relief from suicidal and depressive thoughts shortly after their FIRST treatment.
Imagine feeling better in hours instead of the 8-12 weeks needed for TMS or anti-depressant medication to hopefully begin to work. No other mental health therapy is as effective and accessible as Ketamine Therapy. Ketamine literally improves brain function and neuroplasticity by dramatically regrowing your nerve cell dendrites so that the connections within your brain cells and nervous system are dramatically improved.
At Kentuckiana Integrative Medicine, we have been blessed with a higher success rate with our individualized Ketamine program which involves dosing adjustments as well as availability of other proprietary IV Nutritional Vitamin therapies, supplements, self-help tools/books and counseling that dramatically enhance the effectiveness of Ketamine. We recommend 6 treatments in a 2–3 week period + booster.
