K.I.T. HELPS RESTORE YOUR EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, more than 16 million Americans struggle with a major depressive disorder. Depression is the leading cause of disability for Americans age 15 to 44 and costs the US economy $210 billion a year in lost productivity and missed days of work.

Additional scientific studies conducted at Yale University and the National Institute of Mental Health have shown that even one low dose of ketamine, administered intravenously, can dramatically improve symptoms associated with depression, often within hours. These symptoms include moodiness, decreased concentration, low self-esteem, impaired sleep, decreased sexual desire, irregular appetite and suicidal thoughts.

Ketamine Infusion Therapy—K.I.T.—may be right for you, especially if you struggle with:

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

A disorder in which a person has difficulty recovering after experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Excessive thoughts (obsessions) that lead to repetitive behaviors (compulsions).

Chronic Depression & Major Depressive Disorder

Characterized by persistently depressed mood or loss of interest in activities, causing significant impairment in daily life.

Postpartum Depression (PPD)

Depression that occurs after childbirth.

Other Mood Disorders

Mental health disorders that affect emotional state.

Chronic Pain

Persistent pain that lasts weeks to years.

Fibromyalgia

Widespread muscle pain and tenderness.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS/RSD)

Chronic arm or leg pain developing after injury, surgery, stroke, or heart attack.

Opiate Dependence

Opioid or Pain Med Addiction

Physical and psychological reliance on opioids, a substance found in certain prescription pain medications.

Bipolar Disorder

Intravenous administration of K.I.T. gives Dr. Lawson-Boucher and our medical staff maximum control over the rate of infusion and the dosage, down to the milligram, as well as the ability to titrate up or down based on patient comfort and to stop administration immediately if needed. Other treatment methods such as intramuscular, subcutaneous, oral and nasal have not been studied enough for their efficacy, safety and level of control.

The initial course of therapy is six treatments over three weeks. Each session lasts about 45 minutes. Possible short-term side effects include a dissociative state, mild sedation, dizziness and nausea. No long-term side effects have been reported.

NOTE: Ketamine Infusion Therapy does not require a referral or prescription from your physician. It may not be fully or partially covered by your health insurance policy, so you may be responsible for the entire cost of treatment.
