    This is great. I would love more commentary on the CNS pathology and excess glutamatergic tone (think Jay Goldstein) but it’s great nontheless, as much for biomed advances as for PR.

    I would take it all with a grain of salt. Ketamine isn't something to play around with.

    My ex's heart stopped on that stuff on a night out. The paramedics had to restart it outside the club. (We were only about 19. I'm sure he wouldn't be that silly now.)

    I've never understood why people take it willingly.

    ETA: Goldstein is just another in a long line of people who claim to have 'the secret' and make outlandish claims. I don't buy it.

    If the treatments worked, then there would be people whom it doesn't work for too--especially because we won't all have the exact same thing.

    And why hasn't he put anything to the test in a study? Even a survey of his patients to show absolute numbers would be a start.
