Drugs and alcohol damage the nervous system by artificially stimulating neurotransmitter receptors. This continued stimulation eventually dulls the receptors, and causes the need for sustained or increased use of substances, just to function and feel closer to normal. When one cuts down the amount of drugs or alcohol or stops completely, the receptors may heal completely with time, but often they do not. This leads to symptoms such as anxiety, emptiness, brain fog, physical pain, depression, lack of motivation and insomnia.
Why does the brain not recover completely and promptly on its own, as the body heals from a sunburn, for example? The reason is that the brain is our body’s hard drive, carefully assembled and balanced over several years as we grow up. It is not designed for exposure to most of these substances, especially at high or sustained amounts. It does not naturally have the necessary repair materials available to address this kind of damage, as the skin does to heal from a burn.
There are four different NAD Therapy formulas available, consisting of unique combinations of a few select amino acids in a base of NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), that are specifically designed to assist the nervous system in repairing those receptors damaged by substance use, as well as by dopamine-damaging activities (e.g. gambling and pornography addiction). The formulas chosen depend on the patient’s substance exposure history. An oral supplement program is employed after the intravenous treatment which specifically supports continued brain balancing.
NAD IV Therapy is administered as a daily intravenous solution for eight hours a day. This prolonged exposure to specific amino acids and NAD bathes the damaged nervous system in an abundance of repair materials. The brain is then able to rapidly employ these natural materials to speed healing and close up the chemical deficiencies that drug, alcohol or marijuana exposure has caused, which minimizes withdrawal and results in lasting healing in almost all cases. The total treatment time varies from five to eight days for those already clean from the substance(s) for three weeks or more, to ten to fifteen days for those who are currently using or who are dependent on a number of substances. Treatment ends when the patient feels no cravings, and has restored clarity of mind and enthusiasm to be alive.
NAD IV Therapy has been shown on SPECT brain scans performed at the Dr. Daniel Amen Clinics, in images taken before and after treatment, to promptly bring about significant improvement in function in the drug-damaged brain. As the treatment rapidly reduces cravings and in almost all cases eliminates them, patients can expect the benefits to last - to live without cravings, and to have restored clarity of mind and wellbeing.
