Benzodiazepines, often known as “benzos,” are for conditions such as anxiety, panic attacks and epileptic seizures. Drugs such as Xanax, Valium, Klonopin and Ativan bind to GABA receptors within the brain. This reduces neuron excitability, or brain activity. Short-term, this can create a reduction in perceived stress, which often results in a euphoric feeling. While benzodiazepines are primarily for short-term use, many people develop a long-term dependency. Due to the high risk of seizure, physicians attempt to taper down the benzodiazepine dose when someone wants to stop taking the drug. This process can take months, and people often complain of insomnia, high anxiety, sweating, muscle pains and headaches.
Intravenous BR+ NAD™ has the unique ability to revitalize the brain by rebalancing the neurons and supporting cellular regeneration. This facilitates the body’s natural detoxification process and then assists in reducing the withdrawal period from benzodiazepines. BR+ NAD™ is not a cure for benzodiazepine dependencies and is most effective with mental health counseling and support. Contact a physician at Springfield Wellness Center to determine whether or not BR+ NAD™ is right for you.
According to the National Alliance of Mental Health, millions of Americans deal with mental illness each year. These individuals often receive presctiptions for psychotropic drugs, which include, stimulants, antidepressants, antipsychotic, mood stabilizers and antianxiety agents. This classification includes both legally prescribed drugs, as well as illegal drugs, such as cocaine and MDMA.
Abusing psychotropic drugs or using illegal psychotropic street drugs can damage the brain and body permanently if used in high doses. NAD+ has the unique ability to regenerate cells and support neuronal health. NAD+ helps the cells produce energy and repair DNA. Some studies have suggested that NAD+ may help support stem cells which encourage regeneration of damaged tissue. Also, the safest and most effective form of NAD+ is intravenous BR+ NAD+™.
Individuals should consult the advice of a physician before discontinuing prescribed psychotropic medication. For those who no longer need their psychotropic medication, or those who use illegal psychotropics, BR+ NAD+™ is a great option to help rebalance the brain and body. BR+ NAD+™ is not a cure for addiction and is most effective with mental health counseling and support. Call Springfield Wellness Center to see if NAD+ therapy is right for you.
