Ketamine | Sharon Osbourne Speaks About Her Ketamine Treatments

As Ketamine treatment grows in popularity, more and more celebrities report using the treatment to help their mental health. The first lady of reality television, Sharon Osbourne, recently opened up about her struggles and how Ketamine helped get her through.

After a contentious on-screen debate about racism, Sharon Osbourne left “The Talk,” a talk show she co-hosted since 2011. Osbourne revealed details to UK’s The Times about the emotional fallout she experienced following her dismissal: “I said, ‘I ain’t going out, I ain’t doing anything.’ I just couldn’t stop crying because all I was thinking about was all the things that I’ve gone through in my life, and now they’re calling me a racist; this is insanity.”

Osbourne sought help. She began Ketamine therapy, an emerging treatment for mental health. “Ketamine helps patients overcome the depression and anxiety they feel following a traumatic experience,” says Dr. Pervaiz Qureshi, board-certified physician and medical director of Ketamine Wellness NY. Dr. Qureshi explains, “Ketamine is thought to enhance neuroplasticity, retraining the brain to respond to stress more effectively.”

For Osbourne, she describes the breakthrough treatment as a “truth drug.” She explains how Ketamine therapy helped her feel secure enough to open up and address the root of her problems, “If you’re a person who stuffs things [down], this drug relaxes you…You can’t bulls**t on [Ketamine]. It’s a truth drug.”

Sharon Osbourne is not the only celebrity praising the effects of Ketamine. Her statement about the therapy comes after the release of the documentary “Lamar Odom Re/Born,” which follows the NBA star’s recovery following a nearly fatal overdose. Part of Odom’s recovery included Ketamine infusions. Odom tells Good Morning America, “I went to rehab and did some other things, but ketamine came into my life at the right time.”

Lamar Odom plans to continue Ketamine therapy, “I don’t think I will stop [Ketamine]…I wouldn’t want to try to stop…I’m feeling amazing…I’m alive. I’m sober. I’m happy.”
Ketamine is primarily used as a sedative in emergency medicine. However, Ketamine recently gained popularity in the field of mental health after the FDA approved Ketamine for treating depression. The drug shows promising results for treating other mental health concerns and is used off-label to treat:

  • General Anxiety Disorder
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Chronic pain
  • Migraines
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Addiction
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Phobia related disorders

Even though Ketamine is a sedative, it’s not like general anesthesia. Osbourne explains that during Ketamine therapy, “You’re not out completely. You can hear, you can talk.”
