How To Learn More About Ketamine Infusion Therapy with Scenic City Neurotherapy

by

Scenic City Neurotherapy is committed to providing exceptional patient care and serving as a valuable resource for our patients and the broader community. Our dedication to education and empowerment aligns with our mission to provide better individualized care, better treatment options, and better outcomes for our patients.

The Significance of Education in Neurotherapy

Scenic City Neurotherapy has encountered its fair share of challenges on the path to where it stands today. One persistent challenge has been the prevalence of misinformation. It is a common temptation to craft a compelling narrative, particularly one centered around a psychedelic or “magical” approach which promises swift and effortless solutions to complex issues like mental health. Such narratives tend to captivate and appeal to a demographic seeking quick fixes. While quick fixes may offer immediate relief, they often come with trade-offs and do not serve you in the long-run.

Rather than relying on appealing stories, we choose the more complex and labor intensive path of education. Genuine progress comes from a thorough understanding and accurate expectations for our treatment options. We offer informational videos, free provider education sessions, no-cost consultations, a monthly newsletter, and we share peer-reviewed research for public consumption. We are constantly welcoming open discussions and debates, as we believe they only serve to enhance our collective understanding.

Shifting our focus from our endeavors, it is time to address the specifics of how you can gain a deeper understanding of Ketamine Infusion Therapy.

Educational Materials

We recognize the importance of equipping our patients with the knowledge necessary to make informed decisions about their healthcare. As part of our commitment to patient education, we have developed a range of materials, including:

  • Informational Brochures: These brochures provide clear and concise explanations of our neurotherapy treatment options, helping patients understand the potential benefits and risks.
  • Treatment Guides: Those who come in for a no-cost consultation will leave with our detailed treatment guides that walk patients through our process, ensuring they are well-prepared and informed before beginning their treatment process.
  • Visual Representations: Our illustrations break down concepts into visual components, making them more tangible and accessible.
    • This graph explains why IV ketamine is the gold-standard. Ketamine works by changing the baseline of the brain. The brain responds by releasing a neuro-regenerative protein called brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) which is responsible for the antidepressant effect. These proteins repair and protect neurons, resulting in optimized emotional control, improved clarity and cognitive function. In order for optimal release of BDNF, we must reach and maintain therapeutic blood levels. Steady-state IV administration is vastly superior in completing this task due to more controlled administration, the ability to titrate accurately, and 100% bioavailability.
    • This graphic explains why our treatments have such a high rate of success compared to antidepressant therapy. Think of neuro-chemicals as cars and neuronal pathways as roads. If the roads are closed, the cars cannot get through. If we add more cars, we obstruct the traffic further. What happens if we are able to open up the closed roads? We can handle the traffic no matter the number of traveling cars. This is what Neurotherapies do; they open up the roads.
  • Online Resources: Our website was built to serve as an educational hub. It is your source for access to accurate information pertaining to neuro-regenerative medicine and related subjects. We offer a variety of formats, including podcasts, videos, and articles.

Community Outreach Education

Our dedication to education extends beyond our clinic’s walls. We actively engage with the community by providing resources that foster a better understanding of neurotherapy and its applications, including mental illness, chronic pain, and cognitive clarity. These efforts include:

  • Community Education: Our Chief Medical Officer, Charles Miller, offers presentations that introduce neurotherapy to the general public, demystifying complex medical concepts and making the information accessible to all. Highlighting the diverse audiences where we have shared our insights: The Chattery, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Chattanooga State Community College, The American Society for Ketamine Physicians, and The Executive Summit on Addiction Treatment.
  • Provider Lunch and Learns: We host informational meetings to educate providers in our community about the latest advancements in neurotherapy and its ability to improve the lives of individuals suffering from mental illness and chronic pain. In the past, we have welcomed participants from various fields, including physical therapists, mental health professionals, chiropractors, internal medicine physicians, and massage therapists.

Our goal is to be the leader in opioid-free pain management and mental health treatment within the Chattanooga area. We strive to set a gold standard for care that not only yields superior outcomes but also embraces a comprehensive approach. This approach includes providing our patients and community with accurate and complete information, empowering them to make well-informed decisions about their health.
