NAD stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide.
NAD is a molecule found in every cell in the body and is a co-enzyme of vitamin B3, also called niacin. It is used to power metabolism by enabling the mitochondria – the ‘power stations’ of the cell to convert the food we eat into the energy our body needs to sustain all its functions.
NAD is responsible for the structuring, repairing, and remodelling every cell in the body.
An infusion of NAD+ goes straight into the bloodstream. IV therapy allows NAD+ to bypass the digestive system for better absorption. NAD+ then works rapidly to repair cells throughout the body and neurons in the brain.
The reason NAD therapy is proving to be so effective is because NAD IV therapy aims at replenishing the bodies depleted enzymes. This allows the body to heal and the human brain to restore to a healthy natural state, allowing the correction of many ailments.
These enzymes are especially depleted in the human body due to drug, alcohol use, chronic stress, chronic pain, emotional and physical trauma. This causes the brain to reconfigure on a cellular level. This change is called neuroadaptation, being the direct cause of addiction trauma related brain damage and depletion of vital neurotransmitters.
NAD IV therapy is an out-patient customised infusion package catered to the individuals specific requirements of treatment by consultation with our Doctor.
Contact The Life Enhancement Clinic to schedule a consultation and assessment. During the assessment, a questionnaire and the patient’s current history and current medical status are reviewed. Also note a blood test will be required.
After a treatment plan has been established, a qualified nurse will administer the IV and begin to infuse the NAD mixture.
Daily treatment varies from day to day. The first two days typically run from 8 to 10 hours each day. The remaining days usually take 4 to 6 hours per day.
You may bring any quiet activity as that does not disturb others. Internet access is provided. We ask that phone conversations be kept to a minimum.
No, we do not provide means of individual counselling. But highly recommend seeking therapy if struggling with drug or alcohol addiction.
No, IV treatments are not yet covered by health insurance.
Patients tend to report feeling effects from the first to the eighth session, with a general feeling of wellness and mental clarity. It also must be noted that patients must finish each treatment until completion in order to receive the full benefits.
After treatment the patient is no longer physically addicted and may certainly resume a normal life; however, an addicted person will typically not have been leading a normal life for some time. In order to rejoin the world successfully, a variety of aftercare coping strategies can be greatly helpful.
