Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a metabolic coenzyme that works to repair and remodel your body’s cells. Those repairs take place in every cell within your body, but these enzymes must be constantly replenished in order to do their job.
NAD therapy was first introduced in South Africa in the 1960s and has been used in addiction treatment in the U.S. since 2001. Since that time, many men and women have achieved impressive results by incorporating NAD therapy into their larger addiction recovery plan.
Treatments are administered via intravenous infusions, usually given once each day for as many as 14 days in a row. Withdrawal symptoms can begin to abate within minutes, although it may take 4-8 days before noticeable improvements are observed.
This therapy is often used during the initial detoxification process. NAD therapy can help to:
Because NAD therapy is administered intravenously, your cells make almost immediate use of the supplemental NAD, which is why improvements develop so rapidly.
NAD IV therapy is also a promising treatment for Parkinson’s disease, which is characterized by neurological degeneration. The same effects that ease recovery also help improve cognitive function, which enhances your overall health and wellness.
A growing body of research supports the use of NAD IV therapy in addiction recovery and performance enhancement. When administered by a medical professional, there are very few risks associated with this treatment option.
In fact, not only can NAD IV therapy help restore damaged or depleted cells, it’s a natural therapy that doesn’t require pharmaceuticals. For men and women struggling to leave addiction behind, an approach that does not rely on a whole new set of medications is an appealing option.
NAD IV therapy also has neuroprotective effects. Because addiction causes negative changes within your brain, the ability to regenerate and protect brain cells is an exciting prospect.
Addiction places an enormous strain on individuals and their loved ones. If you’re ready to explore a natural and effective treatment that can improve your chances for successful recovery, call or schedule an appointment online today.
