The Dark Night of the Soul book

The Story

Doctor speaking to patient at Springfield Wellness CenterIn the pages of this book, Paula Norris Mestayer shares her remarkable story of 18 years of work treating the brain disease of addiction. By delivering intravenous infusions of NAD+—a natural coenzyme of niacin—her treatment enables patients to kick opiates, alcohol, benzodiazepines, methamphetamines, and more, in 10 short days—with minimal withdrawal symptoms or cravings. She explains—in layman’s terms—what is known thus far about why NAD+ is effective and shares the inspirational stories of people who have journeyed through addiction’s “dark night of the soul” and found their way to health, wholeness, and freedom once again.

Book sales help support the critical mission of NAD Research, Inc. in exploring the value of NAD+ in helping to save lives and to improve the quality of lives. Each book purchased will be autographed by Paula Norris Mestayer and all proceeds will be donated to our veterans and first responders.
