Ketamine infusions are an effective alternative therapy used to help those who suffer from Major Depression, Anxiety, OCD, PTSD, CRPS, and many other conditions. Perhaps you are like many people across the United States who have battled Depression or Anxiety or other mental or emotional conditions without finding relief from standard therapies and treatments.

This creates a dangerous cycle for patients, and it does not offer relief from their conditions. … Continue reading
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a term to describe one form of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Both of these conditions are characterized by severe burning pain that most often affects the extremities (arms, legs, hands, or feet). Both RSD and CRPS often strike after recovery from an injury. The injury can be a simple strain, a fractured bone, or a surgery. Damage to the nervous system can cause people to suffer from RSD or CRPS, and it can be a debilitating condition that affects a person’s entire life.
Chronic pain is a constant disrupter to life. Especially for those “go-getters,” finding yourself dealing with chronic pain can affect you both physically and mentally. Most people with RSD had an injury to a limb that, instead of becoming less painful over time, becomes more painful. Managing pain through conventional treatments and medications can be intrusive and often ineffective over time. Ketamine infusion is an alternative approach that can allow people to reach a level of relief and functionality. … Continue reading

No one ever plans on developing an addiction to alcohol. Most people begin drinking for the effects that alcohol has on the body. Whether it is a feeling of relaxation, a euphoric feeling, or a feeling of detachment – getting a sense of empowerment is generally why people continue to go back to alcohol for. While some people are able to separate their feelings from their consumption of alcohol, many people turn to alcohol because of their feelings. They use alcohol to avoid feelings of stress, anger, depression, sadness, or anxiety. Alcoholism generally stems from the body’s craving for continued use of alcohol and the mind’s inability to face feelings without it. … Continue reading
