The Science behind Your Healing

At GATEWAY Clinics, we believe in science first. Our medical professionals undergo regular training and education to stay up-to-date on the latest research in the field of healthcare, psychedelic therapy, and ketamine-based studies.

With comprehensive research, ketamine is a well-known medication commonly used in the field of medication as an effective anesthetic and analgesic.

Many mental ailments such as depression can alter signaling pathways in the brain, affecting neurotransmitters and receptors. Ketamine can help modulate these transmitters and receptors and can have a big impact on improving the symptoms of depression and mental health.

Ketamine targets the NMDA receptors in the brain. Once it is bonded to these receptors, ketamine has been observed to rapidly and substantially increase the amount of glutamate (a neurotransmitter) present in the spaces between neurons. This process leads to the activation of the AMPA receptors, which in conjunction with the blockade of NMDA receptors, help enhance the communication between neurons. Ketamine assists in helping you disconnect from regular thought patterns and experience mood elevation, reduction in anxiety, and relief from physical pain.

It acts on various areas of the brain, including the thalamus, hippocampus, and anterior cingulate cortex. These areas are associated with mood, thought processing, and brain connectivity. Recent research and studies have shown that regulated, low-dose ketamine infusions can help significantly improve a vast array of mental health conditions enabling you to live a better life.

Ketamine is a breakthrough medicinal substance that has proven effective against mental ailments even in cases where traditional antidepressants have failed to make a difference. As per the prevailing research, over 70% of individuals who experience ketamine therapy report positive and favorable results which usually become apparent within the first few hours and can last up to weeks- but each person responds differently.

Ketamine intravenous infusion is the safest way to administer ketamine to patients as it is the most controllable. Medical professionals can monitor the absorption, accuracy, and efficacy—and control it whenever required. On the off chance this method is not accepted, alternative means of intramuscular infusion are also available at our Santa Monica ketamine clinic.

Ketamine therapy is effective at providing relief from mood disorders and mental illnesses as it is said to directly repair damage in the brain which is caused by cortisol as a result of chronic stress. Conventional antidepressants mainly treat the mind by providing a temporary, slight boost of serotonin. The effects of ketamine are augmented by its natural anti-inflammatory properties which take a different approach to treating disorders than other medications.

Ketamine affects the glutamate system which is used by the neurons for communication. High doses of ketamine seem to block the glutamate, making it an effective anesthetic; however, at low doses, glutamate production is augmented which in turn helps modulate brain connections.

Depression and other mental illnesses are understood better today than ever before because of modern technology, extensive research, and wide-ranging awareness campaigns—and we are now able to detect and treat depression far more effectively with the help of the latest medical advancements.

Ketamine helps treat depression by binding with or blocking NMDA receptors in the brain which, in turn, increases the amount of glutamate neurotransmitters between neurons. It leads to the activation of the AMPA receptors, which in conjunction with the blockade of NMDA receptors, help create new pathways and enhance the communication between neurons.

The process, known as synaptogenesis, works much faster when compared to conventional antidepressants, most of which take weeks to produce significant results.

Patients who struggle with affective disorders, both mental and physical, and especially those who have found the conventional treatments to be ineffective will find ketamine to be an attractive option. It is a highly efficient treatment with little-to-no major side effects which can help improve a patient’s quality of life.

Ketamine has been shown to be effective in mitigating symptoms of depression, hopelessness, anxiety, chronic physical pain, and other affective disorders. Ketamine can help drastically improve people’s lives by providing them with rapid relief.

Gateway’s Santa Monica ketamine clinic is staffed with experts and experienced medical practitioners who conduct your therapy sessions in a safe and secure environment, and also offers any post-therapy assistance a patient may require.

Ketamine has been shown to have a remarkable success rate—from 70% to 80% of individuals who have undergone ketamine therapy treatment have reported favorable results. Most importantly, the improvement is noticeable in a matter of hours, and can last for months on end.

Prior consultation from medical experts is highly recommended before choosing to undergo ketamine therapy. Our team at the Santa Monica ketamine clinic will render a professional recommendation to a potential ketamine therapy patient only after completing a thorough examination and completely assessing the person’s overall health.
