NAD Therapy is a Breakthrough Treatment for Addiction, Stress and Depression.
NAD therapy has recently surfaced as a breakthrough treatment option for patients suffering from depression, PTSD, anxiety, stress and addiction. It has been used to treat addiction since the 1950’s. In the last 10 years American physicians have been using it extensively for opiate and alcohol withdrawal, PTSD, stress and depression.
When administered intravenously by experienced providers, NAD offers an unsurpassed detox experience for treating alcohol or opiate withdrawals. The unpleasant withdrawal experience which keeps many users addicted is nearly eliminated. This provides an exciting new treatment option for patients and an enhanced chance at health & happiness down the road.
What Is NAD+?
NAD stands for the chemical compound nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It is widely present in the energy centers of the mitochondria throughout the human body and all living mammals. In recent years, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide therapy has been shown to decrease cravings by addressing the chemical damage done to the brain by addiction and drugs.
NAD activates the SIRT 1 protein and decreases the PARP 1 pathways. This, in turn, decreases oxidative stress via the NAD/NADH ratio. This helps the brain restore healthy functionality and heal itself from within. Impaired energy metabolism with oxidative stress is a major cause of addiction and other health disorders. This therapy normalizes dopamine levels so cravings and relapse and less likely to occur.
While the effects are pronounced, they’re also long-lasting. Patients can expect to enjoy the positive effects of the treatment for months after its completion. This is enhanced when supplied with an oral supplement to help promote ongoing regeneration.
How NAD+ Treatment Is Administered?
Most commonly, IV NAD treatment involves the patient sitting through several days of continuous intravenous treatment. These treatments average from 4-8 hours per day.
This creates an environment where high levels of neuropeptides penetrate the lining of the brain. This allows substances to be stopped suddenly (“cold turkey”) rather than over a long period.
This minimizes withdrawal symptoms and restores a healthy level of neurotransmitters to the brain. Detoxification is much more comfortable and post-withdrawal symptoms are minimized. In many cases, patients using this therapy to help with their withdrawals say that symptoms like cravings and anxious feelings subside within a few days of treatment and that they feel clear-headed, energetic and healthy.
As is true with all treatments, patients should be evaluated individually to assess their readiness for treatment. Once treatment has commenced, results also need to be monitored. This careful and close monitoring ensures good outcomes and happy patients in the long-term.
Considerations For NAD Treatment
While this therapy is tremendously helpful for people recovering from addiction, there are some things to remember. Only a selected few providers have adequate experience and training to achieve optimal results. Also, it’s essential to choose your provider carefully. Talk with previous patients about their experience with the provider and his or her NAD administration skills. There are many providers claiming to offer detox services using NAD products. Make sure your provider is Brain Restoration Therapy BR+ Certified. This certification ensures they have undergone the training and supervision we know contributes to the best patient outcomes.
What’s more, the source of the IV used is of utmost importance. Not all products are created equal and patients can feel the difference between high-quality and low-quality products. It’s essential to find a provider who sources their IV from a high-quality company. And, that they have the experience and skill needed to administer it safely and effectively for various patients.
The Case for NAD Therapy
Thanks to its longevity, efficacy and accessibility, NAD therapy should be standard of practice for all patients recovering from addiction, depression and similar issues. When accompanied by ongoing therapies and complementary treatments, it has the potential to reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms and help patients return to feeling healthy and happy sooner.
When NAD is sourced from a reputable provider and administered by a professional, it offers ongoing benefits for patients and enhanced healing for the brain and its many neurotransmitters.
