NAD for Migraines

A migraine is not just a bad headache. It’s a disabling neurological disease with symptoms that differ from other headaches, which, as a result, require different treatment approaches. 

The American Migraine Foundation estimates that at least 39 million Americans live with migraines. Large as that number is, the fact that many people do not get a diagnosis or treatment for their headaches implies that the actual number is probably much higher. Traditional treatment options may involve painkillers, preventive medications, or even Botox® injections. 

The leading prescription medications for migraines are sumatriptan (marketed under the brand names Imitrex and Tosymra) and zolmitriptan (Zolmig). These medicines belong to a class of drugs known as selective serotonin receptor agonists, which work by joining to receptors that normally bind to serotonin and cause the constriction of dilated blood vessels as a result. Unfortunately, they don’t work for all migraine sufferers, nor do they reduce the frequency of migraines. 

Moreover, these drugs also cause side effects, the most common of which are dizziness, drowsiness, heaviness, nausea, stomachaches, tingling, and weakness. Other fairly common side effects include: headaches, hot/cold flashes, and tiredness. In fact, prolonged reliance on these drugs can cause “rebound headaches.” 

Fortunately, there is a way off the migraine merry-go-round—and we’ve pioneered it. 

As we’ve published in various case studies and presented at scientific conferences, NAD+ delivered directly to the sphenopalatine ganglion via the nose can provide immediate, long-lasting migraine pain relief. In at least one case, a single treatment completely eliminated migraines for the patient for the entire one-year follow-up. 

That case study, presented in 2022 at the Mississippi Academy of Sciences,1 described an 87-year-old woman with a 50-year history of migraines, who received NAD+/lidocaine into each nostril via Sphenocatheter. For follow-up, the patient also was prescribed Real NAD+ sublingual lozenges over a three-month period. Interviews conducted at one week, six weeks, three months, and one year intervals revealed no adverse effects and the patient has not had a single migraine since. 

Other patients have had similar results: intranasal NAD+ has significantly reduced migraines and improved patients’ sense of well-being with no adverse side effects. Some patients require a follow-up treatment several weeks after the first, but all have reported rapid improvement that has continued for as long as we’ve been able to follow them (currently two years). 

The Sphenocath treatment itself lasts only a few minutes and is well-tolerated by all of our patients thus far. 

As anyone who has suffered from migraines can attest, the prospect of reducing or eliminating migraines with an affordable, in-office treatment or two sounds almost too good to be true. That is so often what we hear about intravenous (and in this case, intra-nasal) NAD+. The explanation is that NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is such an essential molecule for health and well-being that restoring it to cells that are deficient can have transformative results.

What Is NAD+ Therapy? 

NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, a coenzyme found in every cell that plays a vital role in the body’s metabolic processes. NAD+ therapy involves administering high doses of NAD+ directly into the bloodstream, typically through an IV infusion. For migraines, however, we can administer NAD+ intranasally, directly to the sphenopalatine ganglion of the brain.  

This treatment has been used for decades in Europe to treat various conditions, including addiction, Parkinson’s disease, and age-related cognitive decline. In recent years, NAD+ therapy has become increasingly popular for its potential to treat migraines and other debilitating conditions. 

NAD+ for Migraines: How Does it Work? 

If you suffer from migraines, you know that the pain and discomfort can be overwhelming. NAD+ therapy offers a safe, effective, and long-lasting solution that can help reduce the frequency and severity of migraines. 

Preliminary research suggests that NAD+ therapy may address several underlying factors contributing to migraines. For example, NAD+ plays a role in synthesizing neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, which regulate mood and pain perception. By increasing NAD+ levels in the body, NAD+ therapy may help restore proper neurotransmitter function and reduce the severity of migraines. 

Additionally, NAD+ therapy may help reduce inflammation in the brain, a contributing factor to migraines. By increasing NAD+ levels, the body may be better able to combat this inflammation and reduce the frequency of migraines.
