You can develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after many types of traumatic experiences. You could have PTSD as a result of military service, sexual assault, childhood abuse experiences, or even a traumatic accident or prolonged, intensive stress.
PTSD can leave you suffering from intrusive and debilitating symptoms, including negative thoughts, insomnia, anxiety, and feelings of detachment. You also have to cope with the many negative physical consequences of the stresses of this mental condition on your health and wellness.
For treatment to help your mind and body heal from PTSD, get in touch with board-certified anesthesiologist and US Army veteran Dr. Bryant Edwards. Dr. Edwards provides care and support to new and existing patients with PTSD from his office at Iconic Infusions, PLLC of Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Infusion therapy for real improvement
Dealing with PTSD symptoms can be extremely challenging, causing additional anxiety and stress. Talk to Dr. Edwards to find out if you could be a good candidate for support with ketamine infusion therapy. Here’s how ketamine therapy may be able to help.
Used in low doses for therapeutic use, ketamine works to block N-Methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in your brain. The treatment minimizes your physical reaction to triggers, so that sounds, smells, and social situations won’t cause you to experience strong PTSD symptoms.
Ketamine also increases your body’s levels of glutamate production, helping you build new neural passageways and rewire your brain to recover from PTSD.
Dr. Edwards offers IV ketamine infusion therapy treatments. Low doses of ketamine are delivered directly into your bloodstream. You rest in comfort during the infusion process, with medical supervision to make sure you don’t experience negative side effects or an allergic reaction.
