New Science Counters Ketamine Critics, Showing Depression is Relieved

Neuro-Luminance is proud to announce the latest science shows ketamine infusion can effectively treat depression, according to a new study published today by the peer-reviewed journal Neural Regeneration Research. Conducted and authored by our own co-founder Dr. Theodore Henderson, the study gives “real world” experience treating many patients with ketamine, and allays related fears. His findings, effective with patients nearly 80% of the time, stand in direct contrast to warnings from the American Psychiatric Association (APA). Read the news and study here. This should not alarm anyone. In fact, the opposite should be true. This scientific study is the latest research performed on ketamine, written to give people suffering with depression a reason to ask their doctors, or get more information, find answers and get the help they need. Depression is not to be taken lightly. It is a serious condition. But, there is a silver lining with depression. Once it’s gone, we can be even more grateful for the life we have been given. For more information, or to schedule a call with Dr. Henderson personally please call (855)...

Adolescent football: Not as safe as you may think

Concussions have been in the limelight recently due to the deaths of high profile professional athletes who experienced repeated hits to their head. This information has created heightened attention for prevention, diagnosis and treatment for concussions in children and adolescents participating in sports.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 173,285 patients 19 years and younger are treated in the emergency room each years for sports and recreational traumatic brain injuries, which includes concussions. This number has increased by 60% in the past decade among those playing football, soccer, hockey and other contact sports. Even though professional football has been the most researched group of professional athletes when it comes to brain changes from hits to the head, they are a very small subset of people who play football overall.  Seventy percent of football players are adolescents, so for every professional player in the NFL there are 2,000 high school players. Researchers at Wake Forest University have found that significant brain changes can occur in high school football players in a single season, and even if the athlete didn’t suffer an obvious concussion.  Because this is such an understudied population, the researchers used helmet-mounted accelerometers to measure the number, severity, g-force, and acceleration of each player’s impacts in games, as well...

Suicide among veterans of the United States military

Suicide among veterans of the United States military is an ongoing phenomenon with 23 veterans committing suicide every day. This translates to a suicide every 65 minutes.   Between 2007 and 2010, the number of deaths from suicide in the U.S. increased by nearly 11%. Annual suicide rates among U.S. adults aged 35 to 64 increased from 13.7 to 17.6 suicides per 100,000 people between 1999 and 2010. Rates of suicide among middle-age men in the general population have...

Is Clinical Diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (IPD) Enough?

Still, some clinicians argue that their clinical diagnosis is sufficient. However, two considerations are worth noting. First, Walker and colleagues (J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry. 2007;78:1176-1181) demonstrated that the specificity of clinical diagnosis was considerably lower than that of DaTSCAN. Sensitivity of clinical diagnosis and DaTSCAN were similar at about 85%; however, specificity of DaTSCAN was 86% and that of clinical examination was only 50%. One example of a clinically deceptive situation is psychogenic or pharmacological tremor, which can be...
