Ketamine therapy greatly helped with my IBS-C

I am a 46 year old guy who has been suffering from IBS-C for 30 years. Symptoms have been constipation, excessive gas / flatuence, depression, bloating, social anxiety, back pain, dizziness, fatigue, brain fog, severe straining and incomplete emptying.

Needless to say, this crippling IBS-C has had a severely negative impact on some of the most precious years of my life.

I have literally tried it all:

  • Gluten free diet
  • Modulon
  • Propulsid
  • Digestive enzymes
  • Acidophilus
  • Fennel
  • Pepperment Tea
  • Laxatives
  • Resotran
  • Metamucil
  • Low fat diet
  • Dairy free diet
  • Meat free diet
  • Drinking lots of water
  • Smaller meals
  • Magnesium Citrate
  • Constella
  • Low FODMAP diet

... just to name a few. Nothing worked.

The only thing that ever worked on occasion was Zelnorm and / or drinking coffee.


I recently learned about the mind-gut connection and tried Ketamine therapy. I'm not done yet but I have already noticed a significant improvement in my IBS-C.

My understanding of Ketamine therapy is that it repairs and / or rewires damaged pathways in the brain. So it appears that the Ketamine has greatly improved my mind-gut connection.

If you've tried it all and are at a dead end, I highly recommend trying Ketamine!

(If you decide to do Ketamine, I STRONGLY recommend listening to instrumental (NO LYRICS) music during the experience and something you've never listened to before (no past association, facilitates forming new pathways). I highly recommend Music For Psychedelic Therapy by Jon Hopkins.)

Thank you and God Bless!
