BR+ NAD® for Addiction Treatment

Addiction is a chronic brain condition affecting millions worldwide, and the road to recovery can be long and complicated. However, Springfield Wellness Center offers a unique treatment option that continues to help individuals overcome addiction and reclaim their lives. That treatment is called NAD+. Our 10-day outpatient treatment alleviates the symptoms of chemical dependence detox, reduces cravings, and eases discomfort during recovery.

How NAD+ for Addiction Treatment Works

NAD+ works by repairing and restoring the brain’s neural pathways damaged by addiction. It helps reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings, enabling patients to complete their detox program with minimal discomfort. Moreover, it can also minimize post-acute withdrawal symptoms (PAWS), which can persist for months after the acute withdrawal phase.

Unlike methadone and other medically assisted detox (MAD) programs, NAD+ treatment is not a drug replacement therapy. Instead, it helps the body heal naturally by repairing cellular damage and restoring healthy brain function. In addition to treating addiction to opioids, alcohol, benzos, and stimulants, we have successfully used NAD+ to detox patients who have developed tolerance to fentanyl and ISO.

What Happens During NAD+ Treatment for addiction at Springfield Wellness Center?

NAD+ for addiction treatment at Springfield Wellness Center is outpatient-based. A medical team monitors patients throughout the process, which typically requires 10 days. Patients receive intravenous infusions of NAD+ mixed with other vitamins and minerals. These infusions help detoxify the body, boost the immune system, and improve overall health and wellness.

Our clinic follows a patient-centered approach to care that emphasizes holistic principles of health, wellness, and self-discovery. Our trained professionals provide personalized care to help patients achieve optimal health and wellness. In addition to the detox program, we offer aftercare to help patients maintain their sobriety and thrive over the long term.

BR+NAD® for Neurodegenerative Treatment

Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and even TBI and CTE (the concussion disease), affect millions of people worldwide, impacting patients, families, and caregivers. Although there is no cure for any of these conditions, the good news is that NAD can help reduce or reverse symptoms and slow the progression of these conditions. We know, because Springfield Wellness Center has been the trailblazing leader in offering NAD treatment to people with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, TBI, CTE, and other forms of cognitive impairment.

As research has shown, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is central to many cellular functions, and in particular to cognitive function1. Unfortunately, an accelerated decline in NAD levels is associated with accelerated aging, particularly neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia. The good news is that NAD supplementation has been shown to replenish NAD levels and address all 10 of the hallmarks of aging associated with cognitive decline, thereby improving both healthspan and lifespan. In fact, current research is helping to explain just how age-related NAD depletion contributes to the 10 hallmarks of brain aging, as well as how NAD augmentation improves each of these conditions.

Springfield Wellness Center is leading the way in NAD treatment. Our neurodegenerative disease treatment programs in Louisiana can help with the following conditions and diseases:

  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)
  • Cancer-Related Cognitive Impairment

Our outpatient neurodegenerative disease treatment programs in Louisiana offer several significant benefits to our patients, including:

  • Personalized treatment plans
  • Safe, natural, and non-invasive treatments
  • An innovative approach to managing neurodegenerative conditions
  • Slowed progression of neurodegenerative diseases
  • Enhanced quality of life
  • An experienced and skilled team
  • Comprehensive follow-up plans and ongoing support

BR+ NAD® for Total Wellness

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is an essential pyridine nucleotide with critical roles in cellular processes associated with energy production, protection against stress and inflammation, cell signaling, DNA repair, epigenetics, and longevity. That’s why it makes such good sense to regularly boost your NAD+ levels. By doing so, you give your body the resources it needs to:

  • Maintain cellular energy levels
  • Repair damaged DNA
  • Fight inflammation
  • Regulate sleep
  • Lengthen telomeres (associated with longevity)
  • Strengthen immune health
  • Regulate healthy epigenetic expression
  • Boost cognitive function
  • Enhance athletic performance
1. NAD+ Slows Aging

Although there is no stopping the aging process, NAD+ supplementation can alter the cellular processes that lead to physical and cognitive decline. Scientists have observed that reduced NAD+ levels in the body are linked to age-related disorders, including dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, heart disease, cancer, and sarcopenia—loss of muscle mass with age. Scientists have also observed that NAD+ supplementation can lengthen telomeres—key longevity indicators.

2. NAD+ Increases Energy

NAD+ is the fuel mitochondria use to produce cellular energy. Because energy is required for every physiological process, adequate NAD+ levels are essential to health and well-being. In addition, boosted NAD+ levels may enhance and sustain athletic performance, protect muscles from degradation over time, and assist in muscle recovery after workouts.

3. NAD+ Improves Cognitive Function

As noted, reduced levels of NAD+ are linked to neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. While most of this research thus far has occurred in mice and rats, researchers believe that NAD+ supplementation may play a similar role in cognitive impairment in humans, as well. Indeed, our own clinical results at Springfield Wellness Center document NAD’s ability to address the symptoms and slow the progression of both of these diseases.

4. NAD+ Reduces Cholesterol

Both NAD+ and the NAD+ precursor, niacin, have been shown to have a beneficial effect on cholesterol. Specifically, niacin has been shown to lower triglycerides and raise HDL cholesterol (“good cholesterol”), both of which are crucial for lowering your risk of heart disease, which is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States.

5. NAD+ Reduces Cancer Risk

Because NAD+ plays a critical role in cellular health, the benefits of NAD+ may include the prevention, treatment, and arrest of certain types of cancer through NAD’s role in DNA repair and epigenetic signaling.

BR+ NAD® and Mental Health

Millions of people routinely struggle with mental health conditions—from anxiety and depression to post-traumatic stress to obsessive-compulsive disorder and bipolar disorder. Fortunately, in addition to conventional psychotherapy, Springfield Wellness Center offers NAD+ treatments—and NAD+ treatments can help. That’s because NAD+ has unique brain restoration capabilities, which is why we trademarked our formula for NAD+ infusions BR+NAD®. The BR is for Brain Restoration.

We offer a range of mental health programs in Louisiana tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs. Our programs provide comprehensive, holistic care that helps individuals address the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of their mental health. We offer treatment for anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other mood disorders using our proprietary BR+NAD® therapy.

Our team of experts uses a range of evidence-based treatments, including NAD therapy, to help people address their mental health challenges. We focus on the psychological and biological aspects of mental health concerns, assisting patients to achieve long-term recovery.

How Does NAD+ Support Mental Health?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a naturally occurring cell coenzyme throughout our bodies. Its primary function is to facilitate the conversion of glucose into usable energy for our cells. It also plays a crucial role in DNA repair and the regulation of gene expression.

Research has shown that NAD levels naturally decline as we age, contributing to various age-related diseases and conditions. In recent years, NAD+ has become a topic of interest in the mental health field due to its potential to address many mental health issues.

Wellness Technologies for Enhanced NAD+ Response

As the NAD+ authority in the United States, Springfield Wellness Center has also discovered complementary wellness technologies that are able to work synergistically to boost the effectiveness of NAD+ supplementation. These treatments include:

Infrared Light Therapy (Photobiomodulation Therapy)

Studies show that, together with NAD+, infrared light therapy will activate enzymes, support mitochondrial function, and stimulate, heal, and regenerate injured tissue, including diabetic wounds and sun damaged skin. Infrared light therapy also provides a relaxing, contemplative time for body and mind.

“RLT has been shown to augment tissue repair, promote regeneration and skin rejuvenation, and boost the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin.” — The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology

Cool Laser Therapy for Smoking Cessation and Pain Management

In addition to red light therapy, Springfield Wellness Center offers the Theralase® cool laser therapy, which works like acupuncture without the needles. A form of photobiomodulation, cool laser therapy is good for pain management and as an aid in smoking cessation: three treatments over the course of six days can stop the cravings, enabling you to quit smoking with ease.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) for Brain and Skin Rejuvenation

HBOT treatment involves breathing concentrated oxygen in a pressurized chamber. Best known as a treatment for decompression sickness and wound healing, HBOT reduces inflammation, fights infection, and increases energy levels. It also promotes healing throughout the body— especially the brain, which represents only 2% of the body’s weight yet consumes 20% of its oxygen intake—and the skin. HBOT is particularly indicated for brain restoration from addiction, chemo fog or COVID fog, CTE, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy Speeds Healing

PEMF therapy is a soothing, restorative healing modality that utilizes non-ionizing electromagnetic fields for pain management and overall cell rejuvenation. The FDA has approved PEMF treatment for various conditions, including certain types of slow-healing bone fractures and untreatable brain tumors. These energy waves work with your body’s natural magnetic fields to speed up recovery, improve well-being and restore optimal cell-function.

PEMF therapy can help reverse the damage caused by the higher EMF radiation that is all around us.

Shake Plate (Whole-Body Vibration)

The shake plate delivers whole-body vibration (WBV), transmitting energy to your body and forcing your muscles to contract and relax dozens of times a second. Studies have found that WBV can be an effective means to increase bone mineral density in postmenopausal women, as well as to boost levels of growth hormone, parathyroid hormone, and testosterone, which may prevent sarcopenia and osteoporosis. Finally, because the vibrations cause reflexive muscle contractions, WBV training stimulates muscle and bone growth.

Muscle contractions strengthen muscles, and stronger muscles pull harder on bones, strengthening them. Advocates say that as little as 15 minutes a day of WBV three times a week also burns fat, aids weight loss, improves flexibility, enhances blood flow, reduces exercise-related muscle soreness, and decreases the stress hormone cortisol. WBV is especially beneficial for people with mobility issues who may find other forms of exercise difficult.

Explore all of these treatments to look, feel, and perform at your best—in conjunction with IV infusions, or as stand-alone treatments.
