Hello and thank you for reading about my practice. I opened my clinic over five years ago, one of the first in Los Angeles, in order to provide an effective alternative therapy to battling Major Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, & CRPS, amongst many other conditions. My motive for starting the Ketamine Healing Clinic was personal- I watched family members and friends over the years battle Depression and Anxiety without relief from standard therapies and treatments.
There are many clinics now around the country offering Ketamine treatments. Be wary of those that have you seen by anyone other than a Physician- the Medical Director should see you both before and after an infusion to determine the correct dose. Additionally, many clinics adhere to a formula of 0.5 mg per kilogram, not taking into account a patient's medication profile or tolerance level. Some provide the Ketamine with an intramuscular injection, while others provide it through the nasal route. The most efficacious route is intravenously over one hour.
Here at the Ketamine Healing Clinic of Los Angeles, we believe each patient needs a tailored approach. Therefore Ketamine infusions are not made until after I speak with you before each infusion, and typically start above 0.5 mg/kg, the required dose for most patients to respond to Ketamine. Dosage is increased with every visit as tolerated. At the Ketamine Healing Clinic we also believe that a significant part of the therapeutic mechanism is the dissociative experience. Thus after each session I speak to you about your epiphanies and thoughts during the infusion journey, as discussing them has beneficial effects.
Following conclusion of the infusion series many patients see a sustained, long term benefit without the need for supplemental Ketamine. Some may need to microdose occasionally and that is why we are one of only a few clinics in the world to offer the at-home Ketamine nasal spray (aerosolized generic Ketamine which is different from "Spravato"). The at-home spray is meant to decrease the number and cost of supplemental infusions some patients need after their initial infusion series.
I invite you for a no cost phone consultation. Please email or call me if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org, 866-987-7874.
