Addiction & OCD


Ketamine infusions and medication assisted clinical hypnosis can offer breakthroughs for challenging addictions and obsessions

Addiction can be triggered by a multitude of factors, both internal and external. Genetic susceptibility, concomitant depression, medical conditions, environmental triggers, and medication use are all potential contributors to addiction and obsessions. In this article, we explore how infusion treatments, such as ketamine and medication-assisted psychotherapy, offer breakthrough solutions for treatment-resistant addiction and its debilitating consequences.

Genetic Susceptibility and Underlying Factors

Addiction and obsessions can stem from genetic predispositions or coexisting medical conditions, such as substance use disorder. Environmental factors, like traumatic events or financial hardship, can also contribute to the development or worsening of addictive behaviors. In some cases, certain medications, such as opioids or benzodiazepines like Xanax, may influence susceptibility to addiction.

Addressing Treatment Resistance

For some individuals, traditional treatments involving medications and psychotherapy may not effectively control their addictions. Ketamine infusions and medication-assisted psychotherapy present an innovative approach to tackle treatment-resistant addiction and its associated health challenges.

Challenges of Traditional Treatments

Relapse rates with conventional treatments can be high, with withdrawal symptoms overwhelming the body's defenses and leading to relapse in over 50% of cases. Addictions are often associated with cognitive rigidity, a neurochemical inertia that makes changing habits and routines extremely difficult. Ketamine and medication-assisted hypnotherapy can facilitate the restructuring of rigid cognitive loops through neuroplasticity, allowing for a rewiring of neurological habit loops.

Ketamine's Neurobiological Effects

Ketamine's ability to modify glutamate levels plays a crucial role in enhancing neurogenesis, the formation of new neural connections. This is particularly significant in addressing addictions and obsessions, given the engrained habits of neural circuits. By modulating glutamate levels and NMDA receptor activity, ketamine fundamentally alters the response to triggering stimuli.

Addressing Biochemical and Psychological Disturbances

Beyond the various causes of addiction, there are underlying biochemical and psychological disturbances that hinder an individual's ability to overcome addictions, even when fully aware of their destructive effects. Ketamine's potent anti-depressant effects, as a powerful NMDA and glutamate receptor antagonist, can be especially beneficial for patients experiencing both depression and addiction. This biochemical rebalancing supports the restoration of the inner healing potential, surpassing the effects of traditional addiction treatments.

Safety of Ketamine and Clinical Hypnosis Treatments

Unlike traditional anti-anxiety medications like benzodiazepines (e.g., Xanax), infusion treatments with ketamine and clinical hypnosis are considered safe. By reducing reliance on traditional medications, these infusion therapies help mitigate risks such as further addiction and potential cognitive decline.

Advantages of Infusion Treatments

IV infusion rates can be adjusted instantly, leading to a more rapid therapeutic effect compared to oral dosing. This immediate adaptability eliminates the need to wait for the effects of a pill to assess dosage changes, as is typical with oral medications.

In conclusion, personalized infusion treatments, particularly ketamine and medication-assisted psychotherapy, present promising solutions for overcoming addiction and OCD. By addressing underlying factors, modifying neurobiological responses, and offering rapid therapeutic effects, these infusion therapies open new avenues for individuals struggling with treatment-resistant addiction and its associated challenges.

Treating addiction and obsessions requires a comprehensive approach that goes beyond mere medication. Relying solely on medications poses the risk of withdrawal symptoms and potential relapse. This article explores how personalized infusion treatments, such as ketamine and medication-assisted hypnosis, offer long-lasting relief, integrating both Eastern and Western medical practices.

Determining Eligibility

Free Consultation

Before embarking on your personalized treatment plan, it's essential to undergo a free consultation to assess your eligibility for either ketamine or clinical hypnosis therapy. This initial step will help determine the most suitable approach for your specific condition.

Holistic Medicine Intake

Tailored Treatment Plan

A holistic medicine intake session will follow, during which a tailored, integrated addiction and/or obsession treatment plan will be developed. By combining various medical traditions, this comprehensive approach aims to deliver the quickest and most enduring results.

Preparation for Infusion Experience

Optimal Conditions

To optimize the effectiveness of the treatment, patients will receive an individualized nutrition, supplement, and sleep plan. This preparatory phase ensures that you are in the best possible condition to undergo the infusion experience.

The Infusion Sessions

Rapid Relief

Over the course of 1-2 months, patients will undergo 4-6 treatment sessions, with adjustments made according to their symptoms. These infusion sessions provide rapid relief from addiction and obsessions, enhancing the likelihood of successful long-term outcomes.

Instantaneous Feedback and Tailoring

Personalized Monitoring

Throughout the treatment journey, regular discussions with medical professionals will enable instantaneous adjustments to the infusion process. This real-time feedback mechanism allows for prompt customization to meet the patient's evolving needs.

Avoiding Drawbacks of Oral Medications

Time Efficiency

By choosing infusion treatments over oral medications, including mail-order, oral ketamine tablets, patients can save valuable time in their recovery journey. The slower feedback times associated with oral medications are bypassed, expediting the path to healing.
