The effects that high levels of stress can have on your physical and mental wellbeing are almost without limits — leading to everything from depression and anxiety to heart disease. Whether your mental wellbeing has declined because of current events or you’ve had ongoing issues, we offer a solution that helps strengthen the cells in your body, including those in your brain.
At Wellness Nashville, our team of highly qualified providers understands that optimal health starts with the building blocks of the human body — our cells. Through our NAD therapy, our goal is to improve the function of your cells, which delivers myriad benefits, not the least of which is better mental health.
Here’s a look at how NAD therapy may improve your mental wellbeing.
NAD is short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, which is a molecule that your body produces naturally, mainly in your liver. These molecules are found in every cell in your body and their role in your overall health cannot be understated. They’re responsible for energy production, metabolism, DNA repair, gene expression, and immune function.
Your natural production of NAD declines with age, which leads to mitochondrial decay. This point is an important one because mitochondria are the cellular structures that provide power for basic cell function.
As your cells lose the energy they need for optimal function, it leads to aging and weakening systems, both physically and mentally.
When you add stress to the mix, this degradation accelerates as your body operates in a state of heightened arousal, which means your cells are working overtime to keep up with your metabolic responses.
Since the discovery that NAD is the key to energy metabolism, medical researchers have reasoned that replenishing the levels of NAD in our bodies can help improve cellular function on every level. In fact, one study on mice found that by replenishing NAD levels in older mice, their DNA repaired itself more readily, leading to improved health.
We now bring this same therapy to our patients through NAD therapy, which can address a wide range of mental and physical issues, from anxiety and addiction to aging skin.
We deliver your NAD treatments intravenously, which allows us to deliver these powerful resources directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your gastrointestinal system where the NAD can be broken down.
When you come in for a no-cost consultation, we evaluate your needs and recommend an appropriate treatment timeline. Each NAD therapy session lasts 4-5 hours and we provide you with a private suite that features free WiFi and a work space. We also offer beverages and snacks while you’re here.
For your health and safety, our facilities meet the highest standards for safety and cleanliness, including the use of HEPA filters and ionizers that protect against airborne contaminants.
