NAD IV Therapy

NAD+ Therapy

NAD stands for “Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide”. It is closely related to the B vitamin Niacin and can also be synthesized from the amino acid l-tryptophan. It plays crucial roles in energy production (as ATP) inside mitochondria as part of the “electron transport chain”. NAD is also necessary for the production of a group of proteins called “Sirtuins” which play a key role in aging, cell death, stress resistance, inflammation, energy efficiency, and mitochondrial biogenesis.

What is NAD?

NAD stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. NAD is a coenzyme molecule that makes cellular energy and helps maintain the body’s metabolism. NAD is created naturally in every cell in the body and is an essential enzyme that produces cellular energy. NAD provides the bio-fuel for every cell and organ in the body.

How Does NAD Work?

NAD was first discovered in 1936, but World War II stopped the research. It was patented for treatment of drug addiction and schizophrenia in 1961 based on an 11,000-patient study.

Sloughed aside with the discovery of methadone – a far more lucrative choice at the time for drug companies – NAD went “underground.” Research has shown that NAD increases the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters in the brain known to be effective in correcting specific chemical imbalances.

Some of these chemical imbalances underpin addiction, mental illness, anxiety, aggression, depression, despair and hopelessness.

NAD Studies

Studies have found that those with extremely low NAD levels (which can be present even at birth) are far more vulnerable to addiction as well as other diseases and to chronic physical conditions. There is a preponderance of low levels of NAD present in Western society as it is mostly lost in cooking and food processing. What little remains is broken down by stomach acid, degraded before it’s absorbed from the digestive tract.

NAD as a Detoxifier

When he NAD goes directly to the brain, it immediately produces palpable positive results as the nutrients bathe the brain in a continuous pool of natural and highly therapeutic co-enzymes.

Since NAD is a detoxifier, it takes days (rather than weeks or months), to flush out stored drugs from the body and its organs, replenish balance in the brain, and reverse damage. Results can be mental clarity, cognitive function increase, focus and concentration returns, more energy, better mood, positive outlook. And this happens cold turkey.

What if there was a compound that could turn back time, restore energy, improve athletic performance, bring back clarity of thought, reverse depression and help cure cravings for alcohol and drugs even in the most addicted individuals?

There is such a substance. It is called NAD+, and it occurs naturally in every cell in your body.

Compelling research has shown that supplementing with NAD+ may help you withdraw from addictive substances safely, overcome anxiety and depression, handle acute and chronic stress more effectively, and cope better with PTSD.

In fact, clinics across the US are starting to use IV infusions of NAD+ to help people withdraw from drug and alcohol addiction with minimal symptoms in as little as 7-14 days of treatment. These individuals report feeling calm and content and say they lost their “cravings” after a full course of treatment.

Unfortunately, drugs, alcohol, stress, medications, chronic illness and age all contribute to a decrease in our NAD+ stores. As NAD+ goes down, so does our energy. Cells age and deteriorate. Your health falls apart at the very root.

This IV aims to undo that process by replenishing NAD+. Using IV infusion therapy we administer this anti-aging compound directly into your blood circulation, so your cells have access to as much as they need.

NAD+ as an Anti-Aging Molecule

Medical researchers have long known that a group of enzymes called sirutins play a crucial role in how the body ages—especially SIRT1 and SIRT3. We don’t yet understand precisely how they work, but what we do know is exciting. SIRT enzymes appear to switch off genes that promote aging such as those that cause inflammation, fat synthesis and storage, and blood sugar management issues

So, is NAD+ a fountain of youth? It could be. More research needs to be done. But one thing seems clear: It certainly has an impact on your body at the cellular level, and it may just turn back the hands of time.

NAD+’s Role in Exercise and Endurance

It is well known that ATP levels get depleted in muscles while exercising. This simply stands to reason. However, until recently we didn’t know how NAD+ was implicated in this process.

A study done in 2010 using both trained and untrained healthy volunteers helped tease out the relationship. The researchers showed that intense exercise decreases NAD+. When the study participants took an antioxidant, supplement containing pycgnogenol (which stimulates NAD+ production and protects it from turning into the inactive, oxidized form of the molecule), NAD+ levels increased and exercise performance and “time to fatigue” also improved.

NAD+’s Role in Reversing Chronic Illness and Neurodegenerative Disease

At the end of the day, health and energy production are intimately related. If your mitochondria aren’t functioning or they are producing too little energy, you are going to experience symptoms. When the problem becomes too severe it turns into illness.

The link between NAD+, energy production, and chronic illness really couldn’t be clearer. Low NAD+ results in low ATP levels. Low ATP levels quickly depletes your cell’s energy reserves. Left unchecked, and this can lead to cell death.

IV NAD+ combined with IV amino acids can be beneficial in restoring energy production—especially in the nerve tissue—and may even prevent permanent damage.

Some of the conditions which may benefit from NAD+ infusion therapy include:

  • • Multiple Sclerosis
  • • Parkinson’s disease
  • • Alzheimer’s disease
  • • Chronic Fatigue
  • • Fibromyalgia
  • • Mitochondrial Dysfunction

ONAD+’s Role in Addiction

-Perhaps the most exciting and controversial use medicine has found for NAD+ so far is in the treatment of drug and alcohol dependency. Despite the controversy, the basic science is sound, and the early results are extraordinary. Patients are reporting total recovery from addiction within 7-14 days with no subsequent craving for their substance of choice and few withdrawal symptoms.

To understand NAD+’s relationship to drug and alcohol abuse, let’s look at its role in the metabolism of alcohol.

After you drink, your body tries to process and eliminate every molecule of alcohol. This is done in the liver where ethyl alcohol is converted to acetaldehyde. NAD+ is critical to this process. Alcohol donates one hydrogen molecule IRREVERSIBLY to NAD+ converting it to NADH. That NAD+ molecule is now gone and the NADH in your system begins to build. As this happens repeatedly, the NAD+/NADH balance swings out of favor, and serious problems can occur.

We utilize NAD Infusion Therapy and oral amino acids to eliminate cravings, minimize withdrawal and restore wellbeing. We support the rapid cleansing from addictive substances with minimal discomfort and the restoring of healthy brain function for a more energetic, happier, craving free life.

Our Treatments for Addiction

Proven Fast, Safe & Effective at “Accelerating the Detox Process” Restoring Serenity and Hope to Recovering Addicts & Alcoholics. It’s a Critical Milestone in the Advancement of Drug and Alcohol Treatment.

This is a detoxification and replenishing treatment that utilizes an infusion of a natural co-enzyme of Vitamin B3 (NAD) and other nutrients to minimize withdrawals, reduce or eliminate cravings and restore clarity and wellbeing. Research in the 1960s demonstrated its compounding effectiveness in detoxifying patients from alcohol, opiates, pain pills, tranquilizers, and stimulants. This outpatient treatment offers a jumpstart to recovery and a first step in long term recovery from addiction.

How Does It Work?

Our nursing staff administers NAD slowly, over 8 or more hours at first, to minimize discomfort. Typically, treatment requires all-day infusions for one to two weeks in a row, Monday through Thursday, depending on the issue being addressed. Treatment is outpatient only - patients do not stay overnight.

Our medical staff administers the all-natural nutrient IV infusion in an individually formulated dosage based upon the patient’s medical history. The protocol for addiction treatment is typically 5 to 8 days but may run longer for certain drug or combined drug addictions. The protocol for PTSD and other depression or anxiety disorders is generally only four days. Treatment is provided on an outpatient basis—meaning patients do not stay overnight.
