Understanding How NAD Therapy Works

Understanding How NAD Therapy Works

The older we get, the more stress, toxins, and natural aging affect us. Our bodies can also lose nutrients as we age, and even daily processes that keep us awake and focused can start to decline. But having all of the energy we need to live life to the fullest doesn’t have to be a dream, nor does it have to be something that we leave in the past. 

For better health as you get older, our team of caring medical professionals at Wellness Nashville in Franklin, Tennessee has an option for you: our NAD therapy program. If you’ve never heard of NAD therapy, you’re in luck — it’s a relatively new type of therapy. This treatment has been the subject of a large body of research, which strongly suggests that it has a number of uses, and can treat a number of conditions. 

What is NAD therapy?

To understand NAD therapy, let’s take a look at how your body works. On a cellular level, different nutrients assist in cellular function — meaning, these nutrients give your cells the power to do their jobs. As mentioned, the aging process causes a decline in everything that is naturally produced by our bodies. A decline in collagen production, for example, causes wrinkles. 

NAD is short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, an essential building block that not only helps to power your cells but repairs your DNA, keeping your genetic code intact. This enables your body to turn over old cells and regenerate cells with fresh DNA. As your NAD production decreases, your body responds with decreased energy, deeper wrinkles, and less focus. 

Free radical damage and damage from environmental toxins can interfere with healthy NAD levels in your body. Using drugs, particularly hard drugs like opioids and amphetamines, can compromise many bodily processes, as well as affect your NAD production. Spending too much time in the sun and degenerative diseases also affect your natural NAD.  

What does NAD do for me?

NAD is critical for keeping your cells strong and healthy. It is synthesized in the body from vitamin B3, which is an essential vitamin that can help keep your cholesterol in check. It also helps to metabolize fats and sugar into energy. 

NAD has been successfully used to treat depression, support addiction recovery, and treat degenerative diseases. It has also been shown to effectively support detoxing the body and treat chronic fatigue and rosacea with no reports of negative effects. NAD is a safe treatment, with no evidence of overdosing or negative side effects.    

How often do I need NAD therapy?

If you’re a candidate for NAD therapy, your provider at Wellness Nashville determines how much of the treatment you need to get the results you want. If you’re living with a chronic condition or using drugs or alcohol, be sure to tell us, as we may need to work with your primary doctor to keep you healthy. 

NAD therapy sessions are conducted at our cozy facility in Franklin, outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Each session takes up to 90 minutes, during which you relax, read, or listen to music. Your provider will recommend a date for your next treatment, and work with you to find a date and time that fits your schedule. 

NAD therapy is a safe and effective treatment for most people, and we want everyone to look and feel their best. If you’re curious, or ready to start your therapy, call us today at 615-334-0167 or book an appointment with us online.
