Who better to perfect the ketamine infusion for depression than the people who discovered it!
You may already know that ketamine is widely recognized as the most effective, rapidly acting and safe medication available for the treatment of chronic pain, depression and anxiety. Many research studies have shown that it is 300 precent more effective than antidepressant treatment and works up to 10X times faster.
But did you know that we discovered the "ketamine infusion" for the treatment of depression at the Yale University School of Medicine over 15 years ago. It was my Department at Yale that formulated and administered the very first ketamine infusion treatment which has since become the “standard” ketamine infusion and is now used by many others around the world.
That has given me more than 15 years of experience using and improving upon our original discovery at Yale. While the original “standard infusion” we developed was very effective for depression, I knew it could be even better. Since then, I have spent years improving on the “standard” ketamine infusion, treating hundreds of patients with complex pain, depression and anxiety disorders.
After leaving Yale, I founded the Ketamine Institute to perfect ketamine treatment for depression and pain. We have improved on the original ketamine infusion, making it the most effective, efficient and longest lasting ketamine infusion available. Although ketamine treatment for depression was discovered by my colleagues at Yale, it has been perfected at the Ketamine Institute with the new Restore Ketamine Infusion Therapy. More than that, we are leading the way in the field of ketamine infusion therapy and physician education by establishing the first International Training Program for Physicians in Ketamine Infusion Therapy to bring the latest breakthrough discoveries about ketamine out of the research lab and into physician's worldwide.
Today, we offer both - the "original infusion" we discovered at Yale and is used around the world by major medical institutions and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as, our perfected version known as Restore. Read on to learn more about the standard ketamine infusion and the Restore Ketamine Infusion to determine which infusion will suit your individual needs best.
What The NIH Says About Ketamine
"Recent data suggest that ketamine, given intravenously, might be the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades"....
Thomas Insel MD, Director, National Institute of Mental Health
Restore Ketamine Infusion Therapy is the next generation of ketamine therapy. It is 3 times more effective than the standard ketamine infusion and can last 3 times longer. Another advantage of Restore over the standard infusion is that you only need 3 infusions over just 3 days to complete the treatment. So you can begin with the Restore infusion series on a Friday and be back at home on Sunday.
The best chance for rapid relief from depression and pain comes from the most advanced and effective treatment available. Restore Ketamine Infusion Therapy is more effective and longer lasting than other ketamine treatments, giving you the best chances of getting better.
Everyone is different. I know from long years of working with many patients that the “one size fits all” standard approach other ketamine treatment centers use doesn’t work well for everyone. That’s why we take your individual needs into account.
Restore is more effective because each Restore Ketamine Infusion session is individually formulated and customized to your unique circumstances and conditions, so you know that you will receive the best possible ketamine treatment that’s right for you.
Restore Ketamine Infusion Therapy
An Exciting New And Effective Ketamine Therapy
For Depression And Chronic Pain
Today most, if not all, ketamine treatment centers around the world providing ketamine depression therapy are using the same "standard" ketamine infusion protocol that my colleagues at Yale developed years ago. What those other centers don't know is that our Department at Yale originally developed that "standard" ketamine infusion protocol for depression with the least amount of medication possible, not the most effective.
After years of research, we have discovered the right dose of medication, for the right person, with the right condition.
During those early days, while I was at Yale, it was clear that we didn’t know two very important things. We didn’t know the most effective dose of ketamine to use and we didn’t know how to make it last longer. I knew from my prior experience with ketamine treatment, that when I used higher doses, I could achieve almost instant and complete relief of chronic pain or depression.
That was great start but, as with other ketamine centers today using the standard infusion, the effects only lasted a few weeks. Was there an optimal dose of ketamine for each condition and could it be administered in a way to make it last longer? Yes, there was.
I founded the Ketamine Institute and spent many years with hundreds of patients to answer those questions and perfect ketamine infusion therapy. The result of that effort has been the Restore Ketamine Infusion Therapy. With the Restore Infusion, we have made ketamine therapy more effective, longer lasting, requiring fewer infusions to maintain the outstanding benefits.
That’s the Restore Ketamine Infusion Therapy difference.
The Restore Ketamine Infusion Therapy Difference
You wouldn't want your surgeon to walk out of the operating room in the middle of your surgery, would you? Neither would we. It is important to remember that ketamine is first of all an anesthetic agent. And although it is a very safe medication, it must be administrated like an anesthetic agent with close, continuous supervision and monitoring by your physician. While some other centers will allow you to remain alone or with a friend, unmonitored by a physician during your ketamine infusion treatment…we do not.
We know that your responses during our Restore Ketamine Infusion are a critical factor in your treatment to ensure that you have the best possible outcome. That is why monitoring you closely during the ketamine infusion is so important to us. It provides crucial insight as to your progress and we utilize those observations to adjust, modify and enhance your infusion session each time.
So, as your physician, I never leave you alone and unattended or with an assistant in a room during your Restore infusion. And, of course, you are treated in a very private, quiet environment and never in a clinic situation with other people receiving infusions at the same time.
The setting in which the Restore Ketamine Infusion takes place is another important element in your overall recovery during the process. We know that the best results are achieved when our clients are away from their normal routine and stresses so they can focus solely on getting better. It is critical that after your session you are able to relax and allow the benefits of Restore to take place in your body.
We have found that Pensacola, FL is the ideal environment to allow our clients to relax, recover and enjoy a break during their ketamine treatment. In addition, we have partnered with Hyatt Place and Hilton Hotels for special client room rates for our patients, as well as, complementary transportation to and from the Ketamine Institute for your Restore infusion sessions. So you don't have to worry about getting around town for your Restore Ketamine Infusion treatment.
We understand that ketamine treatment for depression and pain is a very private matter for those involved and we go to great lengths to ensure that each client is treated in a manner that respects their privacy and confidentiality.
Many of our clients are very private individuals and they appreciate the fact that we are located in a small quiet beachfront location away from their place of residence. They also are appreciative of the fact that do not post "one line patient testimonials” on our website or seek to have our services publicized on websites that promote “ketamine clinics”.
Nonetheless, some of our patients, in an effort to help others, elect to post their honest experiences on our Facebook page and we are very grateful for their concern. We have included them here to help those still searching for an effective treatment alternative.
If you suffer from chronic pain, depression, anxiety or PTSD and have not had relief with prescription medication or other traditional approaches, then Restore Ketamine Infusion Therapy may be an option for you.
To become an expert in any field you must devote all of your time and attention to what you do best. The Ketamine Institute is a very specialized center devoted exclusively to ketamine treatment.
We focus solely on ketamine therapy to ensure that you have the best possible opportunity to improve with our infusions. I take the highest possible precautions and conduct a thorough assessment of each patient’s medical history and prior treatments before accepting a patient for ketamine treatment.
Unlike other centers, I personally evaluate, select and treat each and every patient at the Ketamine Institute. I administer each Restore infusion treatment myself and only see one patient at a time, so you have my full attention throughout the entire process.
Although we receive a large number of inquiries for treatment from patients and physicians, please understand that due to our comprehensive and individually tailored approach to ketamine treatment, we can only accept a relatively small number of selected patients per month.
Undertaking any form of new therapy or treatment for a serious medical condition can be a concern for you and your family. So before you consider ketamine treatment with anyone, ask a lot of questions and be satisfied with the answers.
"We are committed to what we do. We will use all of our knowledge, experience, training and expertise to help you. And while we cannot promise success in every case, we can promise and guarantee, that we will make every effort and take every step necessary to ensure that you have the best possible chances of recovery with Restore Ketamine Infusion Therapy."
