There are more than 100 million people around the world with treatment-resistant depression, and there hasn’t been a significant class of drugs to hit the market for depression since SSRIs in the 80s. In recent years, ketamine has been growing in popularity as a potential solution, with clinics popping up around the U.S., Canada, and beyond. In addition to ketamine for depression, people are also receiving ketamine for trauma, anxiety, and even chronic pain. But does it actually work? And if you want to try it, where should you begin?
In this 90-minute webinar, ketamine experts Dr. Will Siu and Dr. Jeff Becker will cover the scientific and psychospiritual mechanisms for ketamine, how to find a trusted ketamine clinic, and how you might go about exploring if ketamine is a good fit for you.
About Jeff Becker:
Dr. Jeffrey Becker has over 20 years of research and clinical experience in NMDA-receptor pharmacology and clinical use. He was one of the first MDs in U.S. administering and documenting ketamine for depression in the clinic, and is a world recognized speaker and expert in the clinical use of ketamine. His expertise led to development of an effective nutraceutical product addressing NMDA-receptor abnormalities. He received his B.S. from UC Berkeley and M.D from UCLA. He maintains a clinical practice focused in Functional Psychiatry and novel treatment approaches to mental health challenges.
About Will Siu:
Will Siu, MD, DPhil, completed medical and graduate school at UCLA and the University of Oxford, respectively, before training as a psychiatrist at Harvard Medical School. He remained on the faculty at Harvard for two years prior to pursuing his interest in psychedelic medicine as a practitioner and public advocate through speaking, writing, and social media. Dr. Siu has been trained by MAPS to provide MDMA-assisted therapy and maintains a private practice in Los Angeles where he provides individual psychotherapy and ketamine-facilitated psychotherapy.
