Nue.life is an app designed to improve mental wellness through an evidence-based and scientifically proven mental health treatment: Ketamine.
The self-proclaimed next-generation mental wellness platform leverages psychedelic-assisted therapies to treat anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. The app provides at-home personalised ketamine treatment therapies as a more convenient and cost-effective alternative to intravenous ketamine therapies by sending rapidly dissolving tablets to be taken orally, directly to the home or pharmacy. Through the treatment programs, patients can track their progress and set goals while helping them move towards mental wellness. They have access to a KetaCounselor directory and a community of licensed providers – To receive compassionate support through their journey.
Chronic stress and depression can weaken and reduce the number of messages sent within the brain, the so-called neural synapses. Ketamine has been found to restore these connections and help healthier thought patterns. The drug is FDA-approved and legal. Over the last 50 years, doctors have determined ketamine to be an effective treatment for many mental health problems, and there is support from the American Psychiatric Association.
Using their Nue Evaluation technique, Nue Life walks patients through each oral treatment plan offered. A dosing discovery process is unique for each patient, and dosage level is determined, factoring in comfort level with the drug, potential medication interactions, previous experience with ketamine and other psychedelic treatments, and any medical issues.
The medical team helps each patient find an ideal place to start, and most at-home patients using Nue Life can achieve similar experiences to intravenous infusions. The team will also partner with the patient’s mental health provider to create a plan tailored to the individual’s particular situation.
Users have the option to choose one of three programs. When they are finished, they can continue or end treatment depending on how they feel. The basic program offers three Ketamine experiences costing $850. The Stabilize program offers six experiences at $1 150. Finally, the Complete program provides 18 experiences for $2 750. Currently, insurance does not offer coverage for at-home ketamine treatments. During the treatment, patients are in consistent communication with Dr Hassan, co-founder of Nue Life, and are required to fill out experience tracker forms after the first, third and sixth experiences. While taking the drug, users can expect the effects to last two to four hours, and they will be able to gain valuable insights, see vibrant imagery and have spiritual experiences. This can vary from mild calming effects to deep meditative states.
