The Medicine

The Science

Ketamine progressively inhibits connections and allows for deep silence and relaxation while maintaining a conscious blissful awareness.  According to Dr. Ferber, “psychologically you ‘let go of sh*t’ and get over it. You see the space and embrace the grace.” But what happens on a physiological level? What exactly is going on in the brain?

When we learn something new, we create new connections between the neurons in our brain. We also rewire our brain to adapt to new situations. This happens on a daily basis, but it’s also something that we can encourage and stimulate, which is why you are looking at ketamine as a viable treatment option.

Research slows ketamine increases expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which is the brain’s own repair inducer. This protein promotes the survival of neurons by playing a role in the growth, maturation (differentiation), and maintenance of these cells.  Not only does ketamine increase BDNF, but it also increases the number of receptors that BDNF binds to. With time, there is more repair factor and more receptors available to be activated by the repair factor. The outcome is that over a period of weeks, neuroplasticity and repair occur in the brain.

Neuroplasticity can occur due to certain factors, like behavior, environment, or neural processes. During such changes, the brain engages in synaptic pruning, removing the neural connections that are no longer necessary or useful, and strengthening the necessary ones. What does this mean? It means that we have the power to create change in our brain which facilitates change in our lives.

The Benefits

Depression and Other Mental Health Issues

Ketamine has been associated with a decrease in symptoms with varying lengths and levels of relief. The ongoing beneficial effects of ketamine may include:

  • general improvement of mood
  • lessening of suicide ideation
  • decreased anxiety
  • reduced OCD
  • diminished PTSD symptoms

There can also be a positive change in:

  • behaviors
  • sleep patterns
  • appetite
  • overall wellness

Everyone responds to ketamine a little differently so outcomes will vary from person to person. With some patients a ketamine “booster” is periodically needed.

Chronic Pain

For instances of chronic pain, IV ketamine can be beneficial by alleviating the pain and inflammation. Several conditions, including cancer, chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS), fibromyalgia, neuropathic pain, phantom pain, postherpetic neuralgia, sickle cell disease, and spinal injury have been known to respond well to ketamine treatments.

Testimonials

“I came for treatments in mid-June 2020, all the way from California. The staff was incredible. With many different treatment options available, they tailored a care plan that was specific to my needs and around my travel times. I feel like I’ve made incredible strides on personal and medical issues as a result of these treatments. I am eternally grateful for this opportunity to use this medicine in a way that has positively enhanced and continues to work through meditation and breath work at home.”
Eva R.
All my life I have struggled with being an addict. I have been to over a dozen rehabs, was in therapy since a young age, and wound up in and out of jail. On October 23, 2019 I made a decision with such intention that it changed the course of my life over night. Now, with a clean mind I was able to seek out that peace I had always craved. I went into Revive Wellness and I spoke with the amazing team they have there. I was very excited to see what ketamine was all about and after my second treatment all I could say was “WOW!” Ketamine allows you to see that there is so much more to life than meets the eye. We just need to let go and trust the process. I have literally felt happier than ever since my treatments. I am more patient, more care free, genuinely happy, and I see things for what they are. I flow with this vibrant energy that I have always embodied but never knew how to manage it.  Through meditation and these treatments my life is forever changed. I am just so grateful for Revive Wellness and this opportunity that fell into my path.

Our Approach

Ketamine can be administered in a number of ways including intravenous infusion (IV), intramuscular injection (IM), intranasally, orally, and sublingually (as a dissolving troche or lozenge). Each route varies in the onset of action (time), bioavailability (absorption), and clearing time and also varies for each person. Although a response is generally predictable based on past administration, it is possible that a patient may experience different physiological, psychological, and emotional effects with the same dose.

We firmly believe that multiple ketamine sessions are needed in order to facilitate the cumulative anti-depressant or other mood-altering effects of the medication. Typically, a patient will go through 2-4 sublingual treatments prior to an intramuscular treatment. This is necessary to assess how the patient reacts to the medicine, to allow the new neural pathways to form, and to reorganize synaptic connections.

FAQs

How do I know if I am a good candidate for ketamine therapy?2020-05-25T11:34:19-04:00

To find out if ketamine therapy is an appropriate treatment option for you, we invite you to take our 2-minute assessment. Within 24 hours of the assessment you will be contacted by a wellness professional to help you schedule and prepare for your initial consultation with our psychiatrist and, if approved by him, you may schedule your first treatment at Revive Wellness and Education Center.

How many treatments will I need?2020-05-25T18:40:17-04:00

Each person is on their own wellness journey and proceeds at their own pace. Everyone is different so there is no “one-size-fits-all” answer. Some patients may notice a difference after 1-2 sessions and usually notice a substantial difference after 4-6 treatments.

How much does it cost?2020-09-23T20:15:41-04:00

Most people are usually going to require six treatments for longer-term, noticeable results. Because of that we offer several packages for individuals and couples, which can be customized to suit your needs. After your consultation with the doctor you will sit down with one of our wellness professionals to go over package options. If financial assistance is needed, we offer Advance Care Card.

Do you accept insurance?2020-06-11T10:50:27-04:00

Unfortunately, ketamine therapy through Revive Wellness and Education Center is not currently covered by insurance. However, we do accept Advance Care Card, an innovative financing solution for ketamine treatments and other services. Another alternative is to receive a superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please speak with a wellness professional if you are interested in getting a superbill for your treatment(s).

Are you accepting new patients?2020-05-25T22:35:57-04:00

Yes, we are currently accepting new patients. Appointments for new patient intakes can typically be scheduled within one to two weeks. At times there can be a await of up to two weeks after intake before treatment sessions begin. We will let you know the current wait times when you schedule your intake appointment.

How are you different from other ketamine clinics?2020-05-25T22:36:24-04:00

Many clinics around the state and around the country only do lower dose IV treatments. Although this method is acceptable, we feel that larger doses via sublingual lozenge or intramuscular injection can yield more profound and lasting results. Also many clinics provide the patient with the treatment, a psychiatric consultation, a lesson in meditating, and maybe an integration session or group. We feel that ketamine is much more beneficial when it is coupled with lifestyle changes as well. Because of this approach to healing mind, body, and soul, Revive Wellness and Education Center offers a variety of products and services to encourage you in your health and wellness journey.

What should I bring to my first appointment?2020-05-25T22:36:55-04:00

Your first appointment will be the psychiatric evaluation. Before your appointment we will email you a link to several forms that must be completed prior to the appointment. Also, please bring any appropriate medical records, if applicable (e.g. lab results, diagnoses, hospital discharge summaries, etc.).

Are there any medications I should avoid taking prior to a ketamine treatment?2020-05-25T22:37:24-04:00

On the day of treatment, please refrain from taking any stimulants that may raise blood pressure and benzodiazepines which will lessen the effects of the ketamine. You may take your anti-hypertension medication and insulin/diabetic medications (be aware of fasting).

Are you available for home visits?2020-05-25T22:37:50-04:00

Yes, we are able to provide in-home visits under extenuating circumstances. However, please note that there may be significant additional charges associated with travel time and transportation costs. Please speak with your doctor or therapist if you are interested in a home visit.

Where are you located?2020-05-25T22:38:21-04:00

We are located in the Bonita Bay Professional Park, located in front of Bonita Bay.

3521 Bonita Bay Blvd.
