The Reset Ketamine clinic in Palm Springs, California approaches healing from a perspective combining leading-edge medical research with holistic and spiritual healing practices. The ketamine treatments at the clinic are provided in procedures based in the biopsychosocial model of medicine, one that also treats “the psychological and social factors” that can exacerbate symptoms and prevent healing.
Recent studies on ketamine, a reliable and safe anesthetic, have shown remarkable healing properties associated with the medication in treating mental health and chronic pain complaints. Ketamine is a fast-acting medication when administered intravenously, and can bring relief to even the most severe symptoms after only one treatment.
Reset Ketamine, and founder Dr. Samuel Ko, are excited to offer a safe, reliable, alternative to individuals still suffering from persistent negative symptoms.
Samual Ko, MD, FACEP, brings expert medical knowledge and unbridled enthusiasm to the Reset Ketamine practice. After finding a hospital setting increasingly unsatisfactory, Dr. Ko spent time traveling the world and meeting with experts before returning to the West Coast and opening Reset Ketamine. As he notes, his experience left him feeling “rejuvenated,” and it is this feeling that Dr. Ko and the team hope to impart to their patients.
The clinic was established to “use ketamine as a catalyst to transform lives,” recognizing that medication is only a part of the healing process. Individuals whose medications are not producing the desired effects can find a safe and fast-acting alternative in ketamine infusion therapy at Reset Ketamine.
Ketamine treatments at Reset Ketamine are always supervised by a health care professional. During treatment many patients report feeling a dream-like state, sometimes with hallucinations. If patients are responding poorly to these side effects, medication can be adjusted.
After the infusion, patients may have “cloudy thinking” for a few hours. It is recommended that patients spend a full day relaxing afterward.
With mainstream oral antidepressants, effects can sometimes take weeks or months before any positive change is felt. Sometimes the side effects of these medications are also very challenging. On the other hand, ketamine is a very fast-acting antidepressant.
Ketamine infusions are an alternative for individuals who have had this disappointing experience with oral medications and are seeking a different path to healing.
