How does acupuncture affect the body?

Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and the digestive system. 

 
By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture may improve sleep, digestive function, sense of well-being, and resolve pain, including:

▶ Low back pain
▶ Neck pain
▶ Osteoarthritis
▶ Knee pain
▶ Headaches and migraines
Acupuncture can be beneficial in that:
▶ Performed correctly, it is safe.
▶ There are very few side effects.
▶ It can be effectively combined with other treatments.
▶ It can control some types of pain.
▶ It may help patients for whom pain medications are not suitable.

How does acupuncture affect the body? 
Acupuncture points are believed to stimulate the central nervous system. This, in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes may stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being. Meridians and energy flows are accessible through 350 acupuncture points in the body.

Inserting needles into these points with appropriate combinations is said to bring the energy flow back into proper balance. An acupuncturist will examine the patient and assess their condition, insert one or more thin, sterile needles, and offer advice on self-care or other complementary therapies, such as Chinese herbs. The patient will be asked to lie down on their back, front, or one side, depending on where the needles are to be inserted. The acupuncturist should use single-use, disposable, sterile needles. As each needle is inserted, the patient may feel a very brief stinging or tingling sensation.

After the needle is inserted, there is occasionally a dull ache at the base of the needle that then subsides. Acupuncture is usually relatively painless. The needles will stay in place for between 5 and 30 minutes. The number of treatments needed depends on the individual. A person with a chronic condition may need one to two treatments a week over several months. An acute problem normally improves after 8 to 12 sessions.

How Ketamine Infusion Therapy Can Treat Depression

In the last 20 years, Ketamine has been increasingly used in non-traditional ways, including: treating depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS/RSD), and other pain conditions through infusion therapy.

How Does Ketamine Work?

The wide range of chemical processes that occur in the human brain are very complex and fully understanding them is something that neurobiologists spend their entire lives doing.

Treating Depression With Ketamine

Growing evidence shows that ketamine produces remarkable antidepressant effects. In 2000, Berman and colleagues were the first to demonstrate the rapid onset of antidepressant effects with an NMDA receptor antagonist. In their placebo-controlled, proof-of-concept, crossover study of 7 patients, a subanesthetic dose (0.5 mg/kg) of ketamine administered through a 40-minute infusion yielded significant antidepressant effects within hours and lasted several days. In a placebo-controlled, randomized crossover study by Zarate and colleagues in 2006, 12 out of 17 participants (71%) showed a more than 50% reduction in depressive symptoms within 24 hours of receiving ketamine. These same participants showed almost no change in symptoms following a placebo saline injection. A 1-week follow-up confirmed a sustained response in approximately one-third of participants. An additional three placebo-controlled, crossover studies examining ketamine’s effects on major depressive episodes associated with both major depressive disorder (MDD) and bipolar disorder showed very similar results: rapid, robust antidepressant effects persisting for at least several days to weeks following a single subanesthetic ketamine dose. More recently, research has indicated that a series of infusions produces more pronounced and longer lasting benefits. There have been over 100 independent clinical trials on ketamine treatment for depression. Their results consistently prove the efficacy of IV Ketamine Infusion Therapy with a 70% success rate or higher.

The Dr’s and staff are amazing and they set the standard for how a medical office should be. They listen, care, and understand that you are at their office for help and they not only provide education but they respect who you are and treat you in the way that works best for you as an individual. It is not common to find good medical practitioners that do that. Thank you for everything you do and for all of your dedicated time and compassion.
