Chronic stress can result in anxiety, irritability, and depression. It can also lead to severe health complications like high blood pressure and heart disease. Replenishing levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) can help relieve symptoms of stress and improve your overall health. The team of experienced providers at Wellness Nashville, located just south of Nashville, Tennessee, has extensive training and professional certification in NAD BR+™ therapy (“Brain Restoration Plus”).

Your body has a natural response to danger, known as the “stress response.” Also called the fight-or-flight mechanism, your endocrine system floods your body with adrenaline, cortisol, and other hormones when you face a challenge or threat. These hormones heighten your senses and enhance your strength and speed, so you have a better chance of surviving a dangerous encounter.
The stress response evolved to keep you safe from predators, but modern life also activates the stress response. Life stressors, such as problems in relationships or your job, financial trouble, major life transitions, and other challenging situations trigger the same endocrine response as physical danger.
Usually, your stress response subsides once you’ve moved past the challenging situation. But sometimes, there’s no way to end the problematic situation, or your body has a tough time adjusting to change. This results in chronic stress.
When you experience chronic stress, your body continues to produce stress hormones. Over time, the elevated levels of these hormones cause an imbalance that results in physical symptoms, such as:
Chronic stress can lead to mood disorders such as anxiety or depression, as well as severe health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and other illnesses.
NAD is naturally produced by the human body and it makes a significant contribution to a wide range of cellular functions. It helps your cells produce energy, maintain your metabolism, improves neurotransmitter function, and supports your immune system. But NAD levels decline with age. Poor diet (and other bad habits), stress, the presence of toxins, and chronic inflammation can also accelerate the loss of NAD over time, resulting in functional problems at a cellular level.
NAD therapy replenishes NAD to optimal levels. This restores cellular function and therefore reduces symptoms of stress. As your stress response subsides, you feel healthier, and your mood improves, which in turn helps you respond to challenges without triggering your fight-or-flight response.
Your NAD therapy sessions take place in a comfortable, private suite with a workspace. There you can relax comfortably, read a book, or bring an electronic device (free Wi-Fi provided). Refreshments and snacks are also provided. You’re also free to get up and move around if you wish. Our professional medical staff are available throughout the session to ensure your comfort.
The facilities at Wellness Nashville meet the highest standards for safety and cleanliness, including the use of HEPA filters and ionizers for protection from airborne contaminants.
Therapy sessions typically last 4 to 5 hours.
If you suffer from symptoms of chronic stress, a no-cost consultation with a medical professional at Wellness Nashville can determine whether NAD therapy can help. If stress relief with NAD therapy is right for you, our provider designs a personalized treatment program based on your health history and other individual factors.
