At our residential Pathways Wholeness Center we seek to remove whatever physical, mental and emotional obstacles may stand in the way of your recovery from addiction. To achieve this goal, we make a number of advanced therapies available to our clients. One such modality, NAD IV therapy, can deliver a much-needed molecular substance directly to your bloodstream, giving your brain an enhanced ability to heal from the chemical imbalances caused by depression, anxiety, alcohol abuse or drug addiction.
What Is NAD IV Therapy?
NAD is short for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, a molecule essential for optimal nutritional and physical function. Intravenous ("IV") therapy is a technique for injecting fluids into the bloodstream as a means of introducing large amounts of water and electrolytes into the body quickly and efficiently. NAD-IV Therapy helps to improve the symptoms of depression, anxiety, and addiction by replenishing brain nutrients that cause fatigue, decreased immune system, mood disorders, and chronic stress.
We can help your loved one fight addiction or deal with mental issues with NAD IV therapy.
How Does NAD+ IV Therapy Work?
In a typical NAD IV treatment session, your attending therapist first sterilizes the skin over a vein in your arm. The therapist then inserts an IV needle into the vein. Fluid containing nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is then directed to the needles as an IV drip. This safe, minimally-invasive procedure can be repeated daily or periodically as prescribed by your therapist at our clinic. Each NAD treatment takes 2-3 hours for the IV to drip the depression-fighting and anti-anxiety nutrients directly into your bloodstream with a 100% absorption rate. A typical course of NAD IV therapy may include 10 to 15 treatments.
What Are the Benefits of NAD IV Therapy?
NAD IV therapy appears to provide many benefits to the body and brain. NAD IV therapy has been used to help sharpen mental focus, ease fatigue, improve energy levels, reduce mood disorders, and enhance muscle performance. It also appears to hold great benefits to people suffering from addiction. While vitamin B3 or NAD can be ingested orally, this method allows the digestive system to dilute some of these substances' potency. By delivering NAD through an intravenous drip, we can bypass the digestive system entirely for more immediate and powerful results.
What Does NAD Do for the Body?
As a coenzyme of Vitamin B3, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide helps every cell in your body make more efficient use of this critical nutrient. One positive result at the cellular level involves telomere length. Telomeres are "caps" on the ends of chromosomes that naturally grow shorter and shorter over time -- and the rate of this change influences the rate of physical aging. For this reason, NAD IV therapy is sometimes administered for its anti-aging effects. It also appears to have positive effects on blood sugar levels, fat metabolism, and neurological function. Last but not least, NAD aids in the production of an important cellular fuel called ATP, thus making more energy available to the tissues.
NAD Treatment for Addiction
The medical community is excited by the way NAD IV treatment seems to reduce alcohol and drug cravings. Its ability to normalize brain and blood chemistry, its healing effects on brain cells, and the overall feeling of well-being that it produces can prove immensely helpful to anyone seeking to overcome addictive feelings. We often prescribe NAD IV therapy as part of a client's residential treatment program. By combining NAD IV treatment with such other time-tested methods as cognitive therapy, medical detox, and emotional or behavioral counseling, we can help our clients shake those powerful drives to drink or use drugs even as they're learning how to care for themselves and live healthier lives.
