For those of us who have been a little wobbly about mental health issues over the past couple of years, there are a plethora of options that are starting to emerge. Chat-on-demand therapy options are one thing, while at-home treatment with ketamine is another. we saw Mind Blossom as well as Field health takes pole position, and recently Surprised announced it had raised $4.6 million to join the ketamine-based bandwagon.

All services are small variations on a very similar theme. You sign up and give them some money and go through a telemedicine protocol to find out if ketamine is a reasonable treatment option for you. If so, a small bundle appears at the door and you are invited, with varying degrees of oversight, to drop in, dissociate yourself, and face your inner demons.

I write about this lightheartedly, but the ketamine treatment has completely changed my life for reasons that I’m not exactly comfortable writing about in a place where everyone can read this. Suffice it to say; I’m a little suspicious of how “easy” it is to get approved for at-home ketamine treatment – my experience with Mindbloom reminded me of the early days of the marijuana medical process, when you essentially had to work very hard not to get approved. but the mental health breakthroughs I have experienced with treatment are undeniable.

Wonder Sciences is joining a fast-filling market with their Wondermed product, which they call “the most affordable ketamine solution on the market”, which is mostly price based as far as I can tell. It claims to be available for a starting price of $249/month. Mindbloom is a bit more expensive (approximately $1,000 for the first 3 months, which is about $333 per month. For regular customers, Mindbloom costs about $230 per month) and Field Trip costs $1,250 for a comparable home package (about $410 per month). ).

On the one hand, I’m genuinely happy that these treatments are becoming more affordable, and I’m curious if this is the start of a race to the bottom in terms of pricing, with the inevitable FDA/DEA intervention. it will definitely follow.

While ketamine treatment often costs over $1,500 a course and is administered intramuscularly or intravenously (i.e. injected into your muscles through an IV directly into your bloodstream), ketamine at home is usually made in a compressed powder capsule that users hold in the hand. their mouth for a certain period of time to allow it to be absorbed sublingually (under the tongue).

Recent Clinical Studies to prove the effectiveness of ketamine as a fast-acting therapeutic agent for the treatment of anxiety and depressionespecially when compared to more traditional treatments. Originally used as an analgesic, ketamine increases neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to adapt and be open to change. By stimulating the growth of new neural pathways, ketamine disrupts thought patterns that can contribute to anxiety. Ketamine treatment usually takes about an hour with a 2-3 hour recovery period afterward and has minimal side effects compared to conventional anti-anxiety pharmaceuticals.

“While the medical community has generally agreed that ketamine is a successful treatment option for those struggling with anxiety and mental health issues, the treatments available to date have been limited and often cost a lot of time and financial resources,” Ryan said. Magnussen, founder. and CEO of Wonder Sciences. “Wondermed is the most affordable protocol using ketamine. We are honored to play a role in impacting countless lives by helping people unlock their potential for self-healing through a safe, scientifically proven protocol.”

Wondermed is currently accepting patients in California, New York, Florida, and Texas, and will expand to Illinois, Arizona, and Connecticut later this quarter. The company told me that it plans to go on sale in 19 states by the end of the year.

The company just announced that it has raised a total of $4.6 million to date, primarily from business angels, on its way to raising additional funds from business angels and institutional investors.
