NAD Therapy Costa Mesa
NAD therapy is becoming more popular as a treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. Other conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and even chronic fatigue find benefits of NAD therapy. Clear Life Recovery is excited to offer NAD therapy to our patients as an optional additional therapy during addiction treatment (if they have low or depleted natural NAD levels). Patients who have received NAD therapy in Costa Mesa have listed many benefits, in and out of recovery.
What is NAD Therapy?
The “NAD” in NAD therapy stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. Our bodies naturally produce nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. In fact, we find NAD in all living cells, as a cofactor essential to metabolic function.  NAD therapy is administered by IV supplement, which is thought to bind with opioid receptors and increase the levels of NAD in the brain. NAD therapy’s effects are not permanent, so most people need multiple doses and possibly require ongoing treatments occasionally to keep up their NAD levels. 
What Causes Low NAD Levels?
Low NAD levels may result from depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, or other health issues that make it difficult for your body to produce NAD naturally. Addiction takes an immense toll on the body and mind, which can lead to low NAD levels.  It is prevalent for people suffering from addiction to have coexisting mental health diagnoses, especially conditions associated with low NAD levels. Low levels of NAD can exacerbate the feelings that can cause relapses and more extreme withdrawal symptoms.
What Can NAD Therapy Do for Me?
NAD therapy affects everyone differently, but the positive effects reported by patients have been extensive. Many people choose NAD therapy as a standalone treatment or complement their treatment plan for addiction recovery. In addition to being used as a treatment for depression, Parkinson’s disease,  and anxiety, some of the results people have described experiencing from NAD therapy include:
- Increased concentration
- Relief from some Alzheimer’s and dementia symptoms
- Improved mental clarity
- Enhanced physical and athletic performance
- Lower blood pressure and cholesterol
- Better overall mood
- Increased energy and relief from symptoms of chronic fatigue
- Improved cellular communication and nerve signals
- Limited withdrawal symptoms during the addiction recovery process
- Slowed symptoms of aging
With so many reasons why people choose NAD therapy, it has become an incredibly popular treatment option. If you have low NAD levels, scheduling NAD therapy is a great way to feel better and faster.
Do I Need NAD Therapy?
NAD therapy is used for many different symptoms and issues but seems to work particularly well when used as a part of an addiction treatment plan. NAD cannot cure addiction or relieve all withdrawal symptoms. However, because NAD therapy is administered via IV, drugs and alcohol are flushed out of the system faster and may reduce cravings and pain. Some people turn to caffeine or sugar when they need energy, leading to cycles of highs and lows. NAD therapy may provide a solution by giving you long-lasting energy that helps your body and mind recover physically. Whether you are receiving addiction treatment or have other health issues causing a depletion of NAD in your body, NAD therapy may benefit you.
Can I Naturally Increase NAD in My Body?
Many people are hesitant to use an IV treatment when they are recovering from addiction. Still, there are ways you can increase NAD naturally, with or without the added benefits of NAD therapy. NAD may be increased by other holistic treatment options, including programs that emphasize physical fitness, yoga, and healthy eating.
At Clear Life Recovery, we ensure that your treatment plan doesn’t just treat your physical addiction. We also heal the triggers and mental and physical damage that go along with addiction to have all the tools you need to succeed. Increasing your NAD levels naturally through your diet, exercise habits, and healthy living is beneficial but must be maintained over time. Occasional NAD therapy treatments may be a good way to maintain your NAD levels while continuing a healthy lifestyle if your body does not naturally produce enough NAD.
