BONUS Episode: Ketamine Practitioner Methods with Dr. Ben Kaplan-Singer


In this bonus ketamine practitioner episode, you’ll hear from Dr. Ben Kaplan-Singer about the application of intramuscular ketamine. Dr. Kaplan-Singer practices integrative and functional medicine and has developed a “whole person” approach to helping his patients address a number of conditions.

As with many transformational experiences, intention setting is crucial. Dr. Kaplan-Singer shares his advice when it comes to setting intentions and explains how it helps with the process overall.

Dr. Kaplan-Singer goes on to describe what someone going through an IM treatment of ketamine can expect. From the initial meetings with the doctor to the treatment itself to processing the experience afterward, Dr. Kaplan-Singer explains how he manages it all as a highly curated and supported process.
