Bryan Clifton, Founder of Kalypso Wellness Centers

  • Chief of Anesthesia at Northeast Baptist Hospital
  • Veteran

According to CDC 50M people live with chronic pain due to:

  • Age related overuse injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Low Back, Knee, Ankle, Shoulder, Joint
  •     A link between chronic pain and depression



Ketamine is well known drug that has been used as an anesthetic for over 50 years, is used in operating rooms around the world, and is viewed by World Health Organization as core medicine in healthcare. The FDA has approved it as an anesthetic, and anesthesiologists use it routinely for this purpose.


  • While low dose ketamine has not yet been FDA approved for the treatment of Chronic Pain, Depression, Anxiety, Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (nerve pain), Inflammatory Pain, Fibromyalgia, Bipolar Disorder or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); researchers for the last 15 years have shown that sub-clinical doses can rapidly relieve symptoms when given as IV infusions.


I ask Dr. Clifton:

  1. What conditions work best with a Kalypso Ketamine treatment? 
  2. How does someone know if they’re a good candidate for Kalypso Katamine?
  3. What is the link between reducing inflammation & treatment of depression?
  4. 4. What happens during treatment?



  • Antidepressant medications tend to be associated with the most adverse drug related reactions. It can take some time before the right medication or combinations of medications are determined, and the effects might not be optimal.
  • Narcotics, anxiolytics, and anti-depression medication all work by trying to “block” certain pathways, but do not actually work to improve the problem.
