The benefits of ketamine last because it forms new physical cellular pathways in the brain. These connections are fragile, and it is easy to revert to the previous default state of negativity, so it is important to reinforce these new brain patterns by improving the state of your physical as well as mental health.
Nutrition is a critically important component of optimal cellular function. We advocate a balanced diet with the following principles:
- Consume calories that are equal to or less than the calories burned daily.
- Eat more protein. We recommend approximately 0.7-1 grams of protein per pound of weight. You may be surprised how low your protein intake is relative to this goal.
- Consume a wide variety of plant-based foods rich in antioxidants, phytochemicals, and other micronutrients.
- Regulate your blood glucose levels by avoiding sugar and reducing simple carbohydrates.
A healthy diet sets the foundation for nutritional health. In addition, supplementing with vitamins and other nutraceuticals can further impact and benefit your health. For mental health, evidence in taking extra B Vitamins, Omega 3 fatty acids (ex. Fish oil), Vitamin D, and probiotics has shown to be beneficial.
At Genesis Ketamine Centers, we offer IV vitamin infusions that can help boost the important changes in the brain in a more lasting manner.
A Myer’s cocktail is an affordable start, but we offer three infusion packages that have promising research to promote brain health and reduce inflammation. Check it out: https://genesisketamine.com/iv-therapy/
Let our staff know if you are interested in adding IV vitamin therapy to the end of your ketamine session or if you want to schedule a separate IV Vitamin treatment.
