The 4 Mechanisms of How Ketamine Works


Ketamine blocks the activity of glutamate (a neurotransmitter), which blocks the stimulation of the NMDA receptor and results in increased Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). An increase in BDNF results in increased neurogenesis and neuroplasticity. This helps those with chronic pain and depression restore their neuronal activity and synaptic strength in the prefrontal cortex, restoring and resetting their brain to a healthier state. 



Ketamine blocks the activity of the Default Mode Network, aka DMN. The DMN is a portion of the brain that can become overactive with negative thoughts; some believe the DMN is where the ego resides. When ketamine is given, this area becomes less active, allowing the individual to take a break from these thoughts and detach from the ego, which can aid in healing. 


In this model, each individual has a conscious (what we are aware of) and subconscious (what we are unaware of) part of the mind. Ketamine allows the individual to peek or experience entering the subconscious mind via its dissociative property. Accessing the subconscious allows for exploring memories, emotions, and stories, which may contain unprocessed and repressed feelings of pain and sadness. Exploring the seubconscious mind allows one to clean, clear, and integrate traumatic events, which leads to healing. Ketamine also will enable you to gain a new perspective on a traumatic or unpleasant situation. Under the dissociative effect of ketamine, a patient may enter a mind space where one sees the situation from an entirely different and possibly healing perspective.


This mechanism of how ketamine works requires a couple of things: belief in the soul and being comfortable with not having a hardcore scientific explanation. We hypothesize that ketamine allows for soul healing and reconnection to the universal. Pain and depression can be a result of disconnection and spiritual injury. Under the effects of ketamine, some patients have experienced feelings of connection to God, the Universe, or the Source all around them. Some have seen people from their past or met spiritual beings. One of our patients experienced seeing their guardian angel and felt safe and calm. Because of this experience, the patient reported feeling a relief they had not felt for many years.

Could you find scientific data explaining this? No. Will we ever be able to explain this mechanism fully? Probably not. However, this mechanism explains why many individuals who have sought out traditional Western medical treatments for their depression and pain did not find relief and healing.
