Emma Stone and IV Glutathione Treatments for Singing


 

NPR Fresh Air interview with Emma Stone talks about how she prepares for roles. Stone has two Oscar nominations for Poor Things: One for Best Actress and one for Best Picture, as a producer. She spoke with Terry Gross about working with an intimacy coordinator, why she sees her anxiety as a superpower, and how she has IV Glutathione treatments. In roles where Emma needs to sing, she would get IV Glutathione treatments (prescribed by her ENT doc) 2x week to help manage her vocal cord polyps.

Ketamine IV: Transformative for People with Suicidal Thoughts


 
Suicide is a devastating public health crisis with few available treatments that can quickly reduce the intensity of self-harm thoughts.

A prior suicide attempt is the single most important risk factor for suicide in the general population. A total of 77% of global suicides occur in low- and middle-income countries. Ingestion of pesticide, hanging and firearms are among the most common methods of suicide globally.

 

Ketamine IV can be a game changer for people suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts. Ketamine shortage exists and can be difficult to obtain the gold standard IV product.

Botulinum toxin for Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)


Three side by side images with patients getting injections

 
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating in certain areas of the body, such as the armpits, palms, or feet. It can be embarrassing and interfere with daily activities. Many people suffer from excessive underarm sweating regardless of their body temperature. People with hyperhidrosis may present severe underarm sweating even when they are cold or stressed. Sometimes topical antiperspirants are not enough to combat axillary hyperhidrosis.

 

Injections of botulinum toxin (botulinum toxin) can be an effective treatment option for hyperhidrosis. Botulinum toxin is injected into the underarms and blocks the signals from the nerves responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. Hyperhidrosis may also occur in other parts of the body. Overactive sweat glands are common on the hands, forehead, and feet. In all cases, the treatment with botulinum toxin is an effective approach that can improve the patient’s quality of life.

 

Contact Vitality Medical Infusions and speak to our experienced healthcare provider. She will review your medical history and conditions to decide if this is the best hyperhidrosis treatment for you.

Healing Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber for Jeremy Renner


 
Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers can be used to treat several medical conditions, including crushing injuries like Renner’s.

 

Human body tissue needs oxygen to function, and the air people breathe is 21% oxygen. Hyperbaric oxygen chambers create an environment where patients can breathe 100% oxygen, according to the FDA. Once a patient is in the chamber, the air pressure in the unit is raised to a level about 2 or 3 times higher than normal, which helps the lungs collect more oxygen. The oxygen goes through the bloodstream and essentially overflows into tissues, which can speed up the healing process.

 

In addition to injuries, hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used to treat other medical conditions like burns, severe anemia, carbon monoxide poisoning, radiation injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and more. It is also commonly used for treating scuba and deep-sea divers affected by the rapid pressure change.

 

Vitality Medical Infusions offers Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber therapy for these above conditions and more. Call our medical office for details.

We Can’t Say Enough About Ketamine for Depression and Anxiety


 
Have you ever suffered from a debilitating or chronic condition in your life? There are a lot of different medications to consider. Some claim to completely cure you, while others merely calm your symptoms. Ketamine is a drug that’s proving to be very successful in treating many different chronic diseases.

 

Ketamine therapy is one of our specialties at Vitality Medical Infusions. Our skilled medical experts can help you figure out if this type of therapy is right for you and the condition you’re dealing with.

 

KETAMINE AND YOUR BRAIN

 

Understanding how ketamine works in your brain can help you understand how and why it’s so beneficial for uses other than anesthesia. Ketamine works on a very specific group of cells in your brain called NMDA receptors. These receptors interact with neurotransmitters such as glutamate to rev up your neurons./span>

 

Most of the time, this is a good thing. However, if your neurons stay in an excitatory state for too long, they begin to die off. This leads to a cascade of events, resulting in certain conditions such as depression or anxiety. These, along with other conditions, have been linked to NMDA receptor malfunction.

 

Ketamine works directly on the brain to block the NMDA receptor signals. This allows the brain to create new pathways and synapses, which can aid the healing of past injury or illness. It also blocks glutamate, which is important for your memory and emotions. This allows you to feel calm and forget the moments before or after surgery.

 

THE MANY BENEFITS OF KETAMINE

 

Since ketamine is used for surgery, it helps to calm your mind and also to relieve the pain associated with certain procedures. However, the benefits of ketamine have broken the boundaries of surgery and have shown success in treatment of many conditions, including:

 

  • Depression
  • Migraines
  • PTSD
  • Chronic pain
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Bipolar disorder

 

One of the benefits that ketamine offers is a decreased need for narcotic painkillers. This is a great advantage, due to the increased likelihood of tolerance and complications with long-term narcotic use. If you suffer from chronic pain, ketamine may be a great alternative to traditional treatments.

 

Another advantage is that ketamine works very quickly, and continues to work even after it’s metabolized by your body. This is especially true when it’s used for treatment of depression symptoms. Typical antidepressants need weeks to build up in your body and start working, while ketamine can work in a matter of hours.

 

Contact our medical team at Vitality Medical Infusions to discuss how Ketamine can work for you.

Ketamine Therapy for Depression and Anxiety


 
Research on the benefits of Ketamine is in. Scientists believe that depression may be due to a connection problem between nerve cells in areas of the brain that regulate mood. Research suggests that people with long-term depression may have fewer of the synapses that allow these nerve cells to communicate.

 

Medically supervised ketamine infusion therapy has been found to reactivate existing connections and to grow new ones, helping the brain to “shake loose” negative thoughts and shift out of depression.

 

Although ketamine can be administered in many ways (oral, nasal spray, and injection), intravenous (IV) infusion is the most extensively studied method to date. “Most patients will require multiple infusion sessions to experience symptom relief, which may vary from less than one week to 7-8 weeks or longer,” says Dr. Gao.

 

Call Vitality Medical Infusions for medically administered ketamine intravenous (IV) infusions. Were are here to answer all your questions.

 

7/10/23

The Benefit of Ketamine IV


 
Ketamine treatment for depression, anxiety, or chronic pain works wonders. You may be wondering whether receiving the medication by IV form is superior to using lozenges (oral pills). While ketamine lozenges are becoming increasingly popular as a way to self-administer the drug at home, there are several reasons why receiving the medication by IV may be the better choice.

 

First and foremost, IV Ketamine has a much higher bioavailability than lozenges. This means that a larger percentage of the medication is able to enter the bloodstream and reach the target tissues, resulting in a more potent and potentially more effective treatment. In contrast, lozenges may have a lower bioavailability due to factors such as absorption in the digestive system and metabolism by the liver.

 

Another advantage of IV ketamine is that it is administered in a monitored setting by a physician or registered nurse. This ensures the safety and comfort of the patient. When ketamine is used in a controlled environment, such as at our clinic or in a hospital, trained medical professionals are on hand to monitor the patient’s vital signs and respond to any potential adverse reactions. Taking lozenges at home you will not have the same level of oversight and support.

The Benefits of Ketamine for Anxiety & Depression


 
Ketamine infusions provide real and fast relief from symptoms of depression and anxiety. Unlike prescription medications, which can take months to see any improvement and require constant monitoring for proper dosing it can help the same day as your infusion.

 

In most cases, patients who suffer from anxiety and other mood disorders notice relief within a few days of their second or third infusion. By the time you reach halfway through your first series of infusions it should have improved significantly.

 

Vitality Medical Infusions offers a in-house spa like treatment facility downtown Bethesda with same day services. We have free parking and can almost always accommodate you the same day with emergencies and after hours treatments.

What’s More Effective: Nasal, Intravenous, or Oral Ketamine Treatments


Over the last 20 years, research on the effectiveness of ketamine in treating mood disorders has dramatically changed the way the medication is used. This has led to the development of different forms of ketamine that are administered in different ways. Ketamine treatments now come in four forms: oral, nasal, intravenous, and intramuscular.

 

Oral Ketamine
Oral ketamine, also known as sublingual ketamine, is taken by mouth. It’s most commonly in a tablet form. The ketamine tablet is held under the tongue so that it melts and is readily absorbed. After about 10 minutes the remaining medication is spit out. This method is digested and does not go directly to the blood stream like Intravenous (IV).

 

Nasal Ketamine
A form of ketamine known as esketamine is a nasal spray that’s administered in the nose just like nasal decongestants. While this method is convenient, variations in nasal absorption rates and inconsistency in dosing sprays make esketamine less effective consistent compared to IV and oral ketamine.

 

Intravenous Ketamine (IV)
IV Ketamine is a solution that’s administered directly into the bloodstream by infusion. This means that a needle or catheter with a solution of ketamine is injected into the patient’s veins. This type of ketamine therapy must be done in a medical treatment facility under direct supervision.

 

Intramuscular Ketamine
Intramuscular ketamine delivery is the least common of the four because this method has a lower absorption rate and isn’t as easy to control. It’s administered in the same way vaccinations are given. The ketamine is a solution that’s injected into the muscles of either the arm or the leg.

 

So far, intravenous ketamine is the gold standard in terms of effectiveness and being able to control dosage.

 

The article here appeared in the Washington Post about the prescribing of ketamine through “Telehealth” and how this internet model has been shut down.

IV Wellness in Bethesda:
Anti-aging, brain fog, pain management and weight loss


What are IV cocktails? Locally owned Vitality Medical Infusions is a medical clinic offering multiple services in aiding anti-aging, weight loss, skin improvement, pain and overall health. A recent article in Bethesda Magazine highlights a local resident (Tirann) use of IV to help wean her off most of the “heavy-duty pain medicine”. Tirann had been taking prescription medications for years to help with chronic pain, as well as the antidepressants she started taking to combat the pain medications’ side effects. It was her daughter (Jarvia) who introduced her to wellness drips after discovering them five years ago while living in New York; Jarvia found they helped her boost her immunity and make her periods more tolerable.

 

The mother and daughter are trying a “Myers Cocktail” anti-aging drip named “The Glow,” loaded with B-complex vitamins, amino acids and biotin to help with skin, hair and nails.

Allergy Sufferers:
Auricular Ozone to the Rescue!


Auricular ozone (AO) or ear insufflation (EI) utilizes a stethoscope-type tubing to deliver an ozone-oxygen mixture to the outer ear canal, allowing the gas to gently diffuse across the ear drum. The ear buds rest gently at the entrance to the outer ear canal, allowing the gas to move both in and out. A fan and ventilation system are utilized in order to prevent inhalation of ozone. AO/EI is painless. Most people report a warmth in the ear and sometimes the light smell of ozone.

 

AO/EI is used mainly to aid in recovery from allergies, tinnitus, vertigo, ear conditions, colds, sinus issues and sore throats. Many experts report that the ozone enters the lymphatic and blood system as well, and it is common for individuals to report improved function in other areas of the body.

 

Call Vitality Medical Infusions if you need allergy relief!

Monthly Special From Vitality Medical Infusions

This month we have a special offer of Glutathione with a Vitamin B12 injection. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant with multiple anti-aging properties including glowing and enhanced skin, removal of blemishes, improved acne symptoms, improved skin quality, collagen production and more. Increased glutathione interacts with melanin production, the main pigment resulting in pigmentation of the skin and darker skin tone. Melanocytes convert an amino acid called tyrosine into melanin using an enzyme called tyrosinase. Glutathione inhibits tyrosinase glycosylation and thus blocks the production of melanin and skin pigmentation.

Other benefits are:


• Reduces oxidative stress

• Improves psoriasis

• Reduces cell damage in alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

Ketamine Stops The Brain From Interpreting Pain Messages

Ketamine is the help you need now if you suffer from depression and anxiety. Read the article from: ABC Health & Wellbeing

“I’d been suffering with treatment-resistant depression for almost 10 years when I first heard about ketamine therapy. I’d tried a half-dozen antidepressants with careful guidance from my psychiatrist.

Some worked for a short time, a few months each, before their effects faded away. Some had side effects too harsh too bear: sleep interrupted by what felt like electric shocks, or a brain fog so severe it made any creative work impossible.

But ketamine, is thought to work differently to traditional antidepressants. It increases the activity of glutamate, a neurotransmitter in the brain’s frontal cortex.”

Ketamine Acts as ‘Switch’ in the Brain

A December 2022 Article in Penn Medicine News discusses the benefits on Ketamine and depression. Ketamine, an established anesthetic and increasingly popular antidepressant, dramatically reorganizes activity in the brain, as if a switch had been flipped on its active circuits, according to a new study by Penn Medicine researchers. In a Nature Neuroscience

“Severely depressed individuals with a history of childhood trauma may have a better likelihood of a rapid and robust response to ketamine” according to Brittany O’Brien, an assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Ketamine is safe and effective to treat children with ADNP syndrome.

Low-dose ketamine is generally safe, well-tolerated and effective to treat clinical symptoms in children diagnosed with ADNP syndrome (also known as Helsmoortel-VanDerAa syndrome), a rare neurodevelopmental disorder caused by mutations in the activity dependent neuroprotective protein (ADNP) gene

IV Infusions: The Fastest Way Possible to get Essential Nutrients in Your Body

With traditional oral supplements, nutrients must first enter your digestive system and be processed for absorption before entering the bloodstream. IV therapy cuts digestion out of the equation. Supplements delivered intravenously are immediately available for your body. There is no breakdown of nutrients, and there’s no wait time. Your body will absorb everything it needs, and anything it doesn’t is filtered out and expelled.

Ketamine Infusion Therapy Works

Have you read about the many benefits about Ketamine? Depression and pain management are being treated at Vitality Medical Infusions using Ketamine.

 

Mental Health Benefits
As a treatment for depression, ketamine therapy can:
• Reduce suicidal thoughts
• Reduce self-harming thoughts
• Reduce symptoms of anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder

 

Other Health Benefits
Ketamine infusions are known to reduce the body’s signals for inflammation and improve communication with the brain.
In addition, ketamine therapy may help your body in other ways too. For instance, some individuals might find their eating habits change during severe bouts of depression – either eating too much or not eating enough. Easing the symptoms of depression can ease these symptoms too, which means you can get back on track with following a healthy well-balanced diet.

 

Contact our clinic for a free consolation on the many benefits of Ketamine.

Headline-Worthy Hangovers (and how to treat them)

 

10/29/18

Hangovers made the headlines of the Washington Post this week in a book review of “Hungover: The Morning After and One Man’s Quest for the Cure.” Author Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall mixes hangover anecdotes with hangover history, mingling his own personal memoir “with some of history’s most storied mornings after.” Think Noah’s inebriation after the flood combined with stories of the Greek gods over-imbibing to hangover stories of some of our gods of today – celebrities and athletes.

As long as there has been alcohol, there have been hangovers…and people seeking ways to cure them. Google “hangover treatment” or “hangover cure” and you’ll see recommendations ranging from jumping into freezing cold water to eating a greasy cheeseburger to drinking Pedialyte to drinking pickle juice (a “hangover cure” that apparently originates in Eastern Europe).

Do these actually help with hangover symptoms like headache, nausea, fatigue, dehydration, and diarrhea? What actually works?

Bishop-Stall – the intrepid reporter who went on a quest to try all of the hangover cures he could find “and explain how (and if) they work, all so rest of us don’t have to” – considered a morning-after IV vitamin drip as one of the best ways to treat a hangover.

Ketamine Vs Opioids-the fight is on!

On NPR today, there is further research into the mechanism of action of Ketamine, seems as though it also works on the same receptors as the opioids. Check out the story here.

Dehydration sends artist Pink to the hospital

 

8/7/18

Artist Pink was hospitalized yesterday in Australia where she was scheduled for a series of concerts. She is being treated for gastritis and dehydration. The best treatment for any viral (as in Pink’s case) or alcohol related dehydration is intravenous (IV) fluids, with a combination of minerals and vitamins as in our Myer’s cocktail! We wish Pink a speedy recovery.

Ketamine goes mainstream-on CNN!

 

8/4/18

Dr. Sunjay Gupta, MD, science and physician reporter for CNN just had a very interesting piece on the impact on Ketamine on depression, and suicide. You can watch the video below or on the CNN website.

Sub-anesthetic doses (lower than we anesthesia providers would use to put you to sleep) of Ketamine has been coined the greatest discovery to occur in mental health care in the last decade. We are thrilled that it is getting some mainstream attention, the more people know the more we can help!
